He describes Gods anger towards those who do not follow and believe in Him. It is explained that God is the only one who is able to save people from going to Hell. Edwards wants people to imagine how evil and distressed life would be without Gods love and mercy. He explains that to not burn in Hell people need to ask for forgiveness from God, experience Gods mercy, and continuously practice the Lords word. Edwards really lets the message of “Gods wrath” sink into our minds to show how mighty, powerful, and capable the Lord is.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” –James 1:27. God loves the poor and the rich the same. He calls upon us to defend the poor and help them. “Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” –Proverbs 31:9. The poor in spirit will have the Kingdom of Heaven.
For instance my pa’ Beto, always thanks to God for the hardships in his life because, he said that through them he was closer to heaven. As well the good times he called a gift from the above. My grandpa was always there to help the less fortunate, this was a way for him to showed that every human is valuable and worth of living, my grandpa, always tried to find the goodness in all people, because we are all represent Jesus Christ on
The cross that Christ was crucified on symbolises a heavy responsibility, a burden that he accepts and willingly sacrifices himself for. It demonstrates the strength of unconditional love as Jesus does not expect anything in return, irrespective of how he has been treated by the people he loved. He still loved them freely, and was ready to die for them. Conditional love from Gatsby on the other hand, has concluded in Gatsby’s death, an outcome he might not have been ready for. While Gatsby was willing to take on Daisy’s crime upon himself, “but of course I’ll say I was” (Page 114), it is not conclusive if Gatsby was willing to go to the extent of sacrificing his life to keep Daisy’s crime a secret.
Neither he nor his wife would admit to his lechery in the aforementioned questioning, their reputation would be destroyed, even if it meant that the truth was shown. In Act Two, John has an outburst at his wife’s arrest, seeing as it would deface his family name saying to the court officials, “God will not let you wash your hands of this!”(204). Proctor blamed the court for his family legacy being ruined. In the last scene of the play, Proctor perfectly sums up the importance of the legacy behind the name. Proctor cries out, “I have given you my soul; leave me my name!” (240).
One reason is that he was a fantastic minister. They believe that serving the church and keeping his sin secret is what is best for the community and his beloved church. This, however, is inequity because even though his sermons appeared excellent every time he stepped on the stage he lying. If he truly loved his church Dimmesdale would know that the deserved truth. The second reason some believe Dimmesdale should not have confessed his sin is he would be embarrassed.
Beowulf, still keeping his faith in God, believes that God is punishing him for his wrong doing, and he is sorta right. (Death ln 16-19). Perhaps Beowulf realizes his mistake in trusting in the worldly things to keep him safe and secure, rather than God, but it is revealed to the reader that this is not the case. Against impossible odds, Beowulf chose to rely on his armor and weapons to keep him safe; however, these things failed him. (Death ln 89-90).
They both give their opinion on the four characters that Fair 2 goes with God’s plan for everyone. The two writers use fear to scare people into believing in God, because he brings great things to them but can take the great things away from to make them learn from it to. Bradstreet and Edwards have quite the bond with God, they both believe in him so strongly that they wouldn’t be phased if something really bad happened in their life because they know God is just getting them to grow stronger to him by giving them a bad obstacle to get through. In conclusion, these two stories have showed that the bond between God and them think that he didn’t want them but he was getting them to grow stronger in him. They both have showed the four characters of God and their tactics to getting people to believe in him.
Even Adam had Eve and his creator when Adam and Eve was on Earth to share conversations with (92). The creature has no one. The creature has no friends, and he cannot find anybody who is like him. The need for friendship has negatively impacted the creature because after being rejected by people several times, his emotions begin to fill with rage and bitterness. The creature states, “…when I reflected that they had spurned and deserted me, anger returned, a rage of anger; and
In Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, it scrutinizes the punishments when a man creates life, and plays the role of God. Victor Frankenstein, is at fault for the creature’s actions. Victor was looking for some honor and triumph, but when he accomplished his experiment, not only did it bring terror to Victor, but to the whole world. The monster never learned right from wrong and was never raised correctly, his first moment of life, all he experienced was the fear in Victor's emotion, and was abandoned right from the start. Victor selfishly isolated himself from society and ran away from his responsibilities which caused destruction to the people Victor cared for and loved deeply.
Martin Luther ran from pilgrimage to pilgrimage, in a frenzy to rack up his good works points and wipe out his guilty debts, which eventually led to his “faith alone” epiphany. Repeatedly, he was told by his fellow monks to look to the cross, but was plagued knowing he could never do enough to be righteous, and stand before a righteous God, of his own merit. Luther’s pride is seen when he believed that he was the only one whose interpretation of Scripture was correct, and that his belief was enough to save him. Focuses way too much on himself to be of Christ. Enough about Luther, the original guilty Catholic.
In the “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” Jonathan Edwards talks about how God is the one who is holding Israelites up from falling down. He believes that if a person was to fell, it would be because God wanted him or her to may be because of their wickedness. Moreover, Bradstreet would agree with him that “time brings down what is both strong and tall” (78). According to Edwards, God is ‘sovereign” and no one is above Him (171). Every wicked man “contrives well for himself, and that his schemes won’t fail,” but God knows it well and does not let them escape from the Hell (173).
