In this, man has the ability to do whatever he desires— in essence this liberty gives you the will to do either good or evil, it is your own decision. Given the circumstances of choice, you can do whatever you want, meaning this liberty is unrestrained and completely up to the person. Because you are given a choice, this gives men more time to grow within the darkness and become much like their equals within this liberty, beasts. The other is the civil liberty, which is also deemed as the “moral liberty”. It is moral because of the agreement between God and man.
More so, Swinburne feels that God has no obligation to allow all human beings to live on equal terms. Therefore, the omnipotence of God’s authority is complete, and human beings must live with the circumstances of inequality by being able to choose evil over good. In a religious context, Swinburne has gathered much of “reasoning” from the Bible and other religious texts, which assume the existence of God through the moral tenets of “good” and “evil” as a criterion for God’s omnipotence and the free will that was given to human beings. Swinburne believes that there is a reason for all human choices, which has been defined by the moral authority of God in this interpretation of
Hucks guardians, Widow Douglas and Miss Watson, practice Christianity. Huck and Jim on the other hand, believe in superstition: they look for signs for answers rather than God. They look for bad signs in everything; if anything bad happened to them they 're sure to have a sign that was leading to it. Though their superstitions are silly, they do have reason to believe bad things will happen to them: they live in a world where nature is dangerous and people act with hatred. Huck has a realization that the Christian “good’’ isn 't really “good”; they believe Huck will be condemned to hell for saving Jim from slavery.
To the Puritans, they believed in collective guilt and that one should repent for their sinful actions till their death; they viewed sin as a socially unacceptable crime. Hawthorne himself agrees with the idea of ‘doctrine of original sin,’, however, he opposes to the Puritanical traditional thinking and suggests how sin is an educative effect that alters one into an incomparable wise figure before the ‘sinful’ act (Mills 97).“‘Among all its bad influences, the black veil had the one desirable effect of making its wearer a very efficient clergyman. By the aid of his mysterious emblem---for there was no other apparent cause---he became a man of awful power over souls that were in agony for sin”’ (Hawthorne 262). Through the use an awe tone, Hawthorne illustrates how the effect of the veil has transformed Minister Hooper into a more effective minister than before. From the words that provide the perception of awe, ‘efficient,’ ‘mysterious,’and ‘awful,’ it depicts a sense of reverential respect yet incorporated fear within it.
My thoughts have trapped me and made me flee from you!”(Pg.173). Antonio believes he has sinned as he questions God for punishing his brothers who in his eyes are great men of intentions as they’ve been through the war. His begging then represents his fear towards God showing that even questioning him may attract consequences. He becomes petrified that he would be punished and eventually fail his family because he wouldn’t fit the criteria being a coming selfish
He believes that Christ resisted Satan because he wanted man to be free, but, according to the Grand Inquisitor, Christ made a mistake. Since man has the ability to choose, he will choose poorly and suffer as a consequence. The Grand Inquisitor views are paternalistic in that he believes it is best for the burden of choice should be placed upon him instead of man. Man will then be able to will to live happily instead of trying to live up to the high standards of Christ teachings. The teachings of Christ only benefits those few who are strong enough to follow through with them continuously in every aspect of their lives.
The Effects of Weakness How is a reverend, who has destroyed his own ticket through the magnificent gates of Heaven with sin, supposed to provide spiritual guidance to acquire that same ticket to the denizens of the community? Correct answer: He is not. In The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Dimmesdale, the reverend, undergoes a transformation that leaves him dead and the Puritan society in disbelief. This transformation leads him to perform acts with unnatural strength from the usually very weak man. The strength drains him, leaving him dead after living a life of sin, weakness, and self-hatred.
Creon just can't accept it when Tiresias tells him that nature itself is rebelling against Creon's sacrilege. The gods of the are angered by the fact that he has kept a dead man from being rightfully buried and has entombed a living girl. Creon's obstinately rational mind can't accept Tiiresias's irrational argument. The conflict between the king and the prophet echoes the conflict between Creon and Antigone. Throughout the play, Creon has emphasized the importance of “healthy” practical judgment over a sick, twisted mind, but Tiresias informs Creon that practical judgment is precisely what he
