At the beginning of the novel, Elie is deeply religious and spends most of his time studying Judaism. However, by the end of the novel, Elie believes that God has been unjust to him and all the other Jews, and has lost most of his faith. The cruelty of the German officers also changed the other Jews as well.
The notion “child of God,” means someone has submitted his life to the obedience of the word of God. Anyone who still loves sin reveals his true colours. He reveals his love for the evil snake. You cannot love God and reject His word at the same time, and whoever is doing this does not love Him because he is rejecting the instrument of His authority over His creation. The devil understands the truth, as he knows that every person who rejects the word of God is under his control.

One day when he is working in a hospital, Simon is asked to forgive a dying Nazi soldier, Karl. He is faced with a dilemma that everyone has to encounter at some point in their life, but this is different than forgiving a family member for lying to you.

Revenge is fueled by anger, but in the case of Dantes’s revenge, it is morally just as “the connection to anger … is common, and even fundamental, but it is not enough to make revenge immoral, for anger … can itself be morally justified” (McClelland 198). His anger is not without reason - he was falsely convicted of a crime due to corruption in the justice system. Thus, his anger is just and therefore his revenge is just, as well. In that, his actions of revenge can also be considered actions of serving justice. Both traditional and contemporary theologians are correct in some part about the role of God in serving justice while also being loving and merciful.
Me along all my classmates had sat in silence, all of us shocked at what we had seen that day. For me, being able to physically walk through a replica of the gas chambers and the rooms the Jews were shoved in makes the Holocaust stick with me even more and I am constantly thinking about what my grandparents along with the rest of an older Jewish generation had been through. Therefore it is extremely necessary to maintain the museums, the gas chambers, the train road the Jews have traveled etc. for people to really have an emotional awakening and to have a better understanding about the Holocaust and what had really happened, it’s not enough to just hear stories and look at images. Without these museums and other Holocaust remembrance places slowly I think people will begin to forget about the Holocaust, especially in 10 years when there will be no more survivors left to tell there
I see that god could get rid of are suffering from a blink of an eye but he doesn’t and I believe that he is giving us freedom to live and that we should trust him. I finally see what Jewish and catholic teachings on suffering is and that we are people who have freedom. Since I have learnt the Jewish and Catholic understanding of suffering, I understand why there are so much different beliefs of god. A small part of me sort of agrees with that god is not all-powerful because of what humans did to the Jews during the Holocaust. However, most of me agree with Catholic on that God is not in control of us and that we have free will and he is here to guide us in the right
And this is a fallen world, with evil, sin and an enemy who wants to rob, kill and destroy us. But I have the faith that God is in control, and because I trust him, he will always make everything work out for the best in the end. Sometimes, as Christians, we don't get all the blessings the Lord has in store for us, because we fail to ask him. God may be just waiting for us to ask him. For a good study on this subject read "The Prayer of Jabez" by Bruce Wilkinson.
way. I am in blood Stepp 'd in so far that, should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go o 'er. (I,viii), Macbeth suggests that once a man commits a murderous act for his own gain, it 's impossible to stop. Turning back would be "tiresome."

Investigators as well as researchers had met a man who goes by the name Eugene Black who sat down and talked about the harsh journey he had with his involvement in being confined in one of those camps. He was born in 1928 is Czechoslovakia, and grew up with a Jewish family. Though religion only played a small role in his life, when German forces fled his homeland he was immediately forced to work in the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. Black had then been selected as a slave laborer where he had grown sick and weak. After a while he had realized he lost his entire family except for his older brother.
On one of the first nights we got to know each other, he sadly passed away from typhus, which is very common here at Auschwitz. I recall him waking up seeing his pale face and realizing that I do not want to go through this ever again. Even though I am genuinely feeling isolated and longing for companionship, the agony of losing someone is something I never want to go through again. In the next morning at 4:00 AM we hear the same heavy whistles. The guards direct us to another construction and everyone is wondering what is going on.
Though we cannot verify the reality of one or many gods, we can offer proof for the power of religion and all it has to offer those that believe in it or those who don’t. For good or for bad, an individual’s faith influences their daily operations: We 've progressed to have faith in the fact that there is a GOD. Religion can help make sense of anything that occurs in one’s life whether good or bad. If it’s good, it is of God, but if it’s bad, it is automatically stated that it is of the devil. People are devilish and they should be rebuked and the devils cast from the souls of hell.
