Because of the way they are doing, they brought condemnation and judged to all men. So who can save them from condemnation and judgement? How can they have a salvation? Therefore, Paul told that the only way to save them from condemnation is to have faith in Jesus Christ, that’s reason why, he wasn’t ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it’s the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, Romans 1:16.

Others argue that Napoleon was a tyrant because he
Habakkuk highlights the injustice that arises from God’s decision to allow evil to oppress the righteous. The revelation though God’s divine punishment and unforeseen promise ensured an everlasting faithfulness and trust between Yahweh and the people of Judah. The recollection and trust embodied in Habakkuk’s prayer allows for a remembrance of God’s covenant and faithfulness for his people. Habakkuk’s prayer questions God’s decision of succumbing the righteous to evil. The unforeseen plan set by God examines the faithfulness of the people as they rely only on their trust in God’s promise of delivering justice to their oppressors.

The government is removing the link between man and the divine. Another aspect that angered Thoreau was the fact that “Unjust laws exist: shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them” (393). This again goes along with the belief that man has the ability to know what is just, given by God, and does not need a government to decide for them how to live, especially when those ways are not true.
