God allows Satan to test him and Job does remain faithful. God makes Job suffer by losing all material possessions, family as well as health. It is believed that God allowed Job to be punished because he knew that Job would remain faithful. God didn 't think much about what Satan said and he had faith that Job would not go against him. God achieved multiple things by testing Job.
Though Calvin agreed with Luther in some respects, they had their differences. But before comparing him to Luther, one must look at the foundational beliefs of Calvin’s teachings. His teachings are perhaps best summarized by debaters following his death. Calvin’s fundamental beliefs, as defined by these debaters, follow the acronym TULIP. First, Calvin argues that man is doomed with total depravity because of the original sin committed by Adam and Eve.
For instance, Macbeth claims he teaches “bloody instructions” that go on to “plague the inventor” (26-27). This quote illustrates that it is the illegal act that will eventually come back around to the one who committed the crime. Also, the language used is not literal because one cannot teach bloody instructions, instructions can be taught, but are not usually written in blood. Another example is when Macbeth reveals that due to Duncan being such a benevolent ruler his “virtues will plead like angels trumpet-tongued against” his murder and will convince the angelic creatures to tell everyone who the murderer is. Macbeth is worried that all stated previously will come to pass, however it is not accurate.
Shylock rhetorically asks, “If a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his sufferance be by Christian example? Why, revenge!” (3.1.68-70) This question and answer fits in perfectly that our compassion stems from our experiences. The Christians all exemplify revenge to Shylock, so when they now want to wrong him, he states he should give the revenge, not them. His ideas of revenge likely stem from his past experience of Christian revenge. Portia states, “It is twice blessed: It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.” (4.1.192-193) Her statement exemplifies the author’s idea that people who receive more mercy will also give more mercy in her reference to people’s social class affecting their altruism.
Its believable because he knows it was the right thing to do. “Because I lie and sign myself to lies”(Miller 4.727). Proctor can barely handle the thought of signing his name in a permanent lie that will affect him forever. The act of ripping up the thing that will save his life is also very believable because he wants to prove to elizabeth that he regrets his affair. John can never forgive himself for what he did to Elizabeth so he feel that when he rips the paper Elizabeth with truly forgive him.
Man can never live without the help of God. The devil can tell you all the lies he may churn out, but the truth remains, man has been made to live in God. Most assuredly, we are all incomplete without Jesus. Our lives have been made to exist within the spiritual environment of holiness. God is our cover, and He is the seal of man’s goodness.
Deceitfulness is Satin’s primary tool when confronting God with the challenge of testing his most loyal and righteous servant Job. Satin believes Job is only loyal to God because God has blessed and protected him because Job is blameless in God’s eyes. Satin is positive Job would turn his back on God if God stopped protecting him. However, God has faith in Job and told Satin to do his worst, but he could not kill Job. Job is not privy to this conversation between Satan and God and is unaware Satan is the one testing him, not God.
Within the lyrics of this verse Bob Dylan describes that although not really understanding the underlying cause for the reason of the WWI, he decided to accept it, with pride even, because he was told by his government that God was on the side of the victor (United States). Another verse that identifies the three themes or war, government betrayal and the use of religion are, “But now we got weapons of the chemical dust. If fire them we 're forced to then fire them, we must. One push of the button and a shot the world wide and you never ask questions when God 's on your side” (Dylan,
Summarize Lennox’s interpretation of what the book of Job says about God and suffering: Suffering is a part of God’s plan, and a part of life. People suffer in life not just because of our sins but we encounter suffering as a part of testing one’s obedience and faith. Explain why God allowed Job to suffer, according to your textbook: God allowed Job to suffer to test the quality of Job’s righteousness, and to test his faith. Satan made claims against Job, to God stating Job was not truly righteous and that he showed faithfulness to God only because of his blessings. In turn God used these claims to prove Satan wrong.
When he is being assaulted by the Bacchants Pentheus cries out to his mother “Have pity on me, mother! Don’t kill me for my wrongdoing” . If Dionysos’ intention was to make Pentheus see his own ways then removing his mother from under his spell would have sufficed. The family would have seen the capabilities of the god and worshipped him justly yet, Dionysos continues to allow Agave to murder Pentheus. In the end the family understand the consequences “Now we see, but you are too hard on us ” Making this violence unjustified as his initial intent was to make them learn of his power and then to take violent action if they do not learn.
