Mary Wollstonecraft’s, Maria or The Wrongs of Woman, is an analyzation and critique about a woman’s place in society. Specifically, that socially, politically, and economically woman are at a disadvantage.

It is an event that one makes a choice to believe, and trust that opens the eternal communication between the sinful creation, and the perfect creator, “Are you ready to accept the gift of eternal life that Jesus is offering you right now? Let's review what this commitment involves: (1) I acknowledge I am a sinner in need of a Savior - this is to repent or turn away from sin. (2) I believe in my heart that God raised Jesus from the dead - this is to trust that Jesus paid the full penalty for my sins. (3) I confess Jesus as my Lord and my God - this is to surrender control of my life to Jesus. (4) I receive Jesus as my Savior forever - this is to accept that God has done for me and in me what He promised.
He mentions “sin” and “righteousness” which are words for “right” and “wrong”—the subjects of every hearing and court case. Here Jesus says that the Holy Spirit will carry out a ministry of acting as the prosecuting attorney of the soul, convicting all unbelievers continually about the truth, using divine revelation in tandem with their ever-present conscience. This work of the Holy Spirit is non-stop, universal, real and efficacious. He makes sinners feel guilt. All humans feel guilt.
To make full use of Jesus’s atonement in every individuals’ life, one should have faith in him, repent one’s mistakes. This will lead one to god forever, having faith in his forgiveness by atonement.

ABSTRACT This paper is an analysis of the feministic aspectof Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Chronicle of a Death Foretold. Feminism is a crusade, which has some aim and dogmas, where a feminist seeks equal political, economic, cultural, personal and social rights for women. The storyhere provides feminists a rich ground in which one can explore the codes of sexual morality that the townspeople of Columbia reluctantly uphold. The portrayal of female characters in the novel shows their submissive nature and how often they have been exploited and forced to go against their free will just for the sake of false family honour and society. It also represents how patriarchy was constituted, constructed and re-invented in Latin American society in the 20th
The book was written during the time when feminist rights and values were not established and considered in the society. Hawthorne’s novel about a female demonstrating feminism culture and importance in the society tries to highlight the equality and justice that much exist in a society. In this story, we get an exclusive view of a women, love, and sin. Unlike those women of the Puritan community, Hester follows her desires even against the strict Puritan values and norms. We get to see a completely different image of women in the society through Hester and how bravely she takes her decisions.
Virgil is a metaphor of Jesus who comes to rescue us from the dark place of sin and damnation to a life of victory in him. God was moved with compassion for mankind and sent his son Jesus to die for the sins of the world. Contrary to the way the world views heroism Dante displays heroic behavior when he realized that despite his own sense of unworthiness he needed God to be victorious. The Christian view of heroism is unlike the classical view because a depend totally on God to deliver and rescue us from our circumstances and sin. The Bible says, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23, New International Version).” Dante’s expression is that despite our sinful ways God is willing and able to deliver us.
This is illustrated in details through her disobedience against the social principles, her methods of challenging them and the final result of her challenge. Women are the main sufferers in the society which Atwood pictures, the Republic of Gilead and her vision of this society reveals many of the inequalities and abuses faced by women all over the world in the past and in the current world.
