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.
Both Window and Mirror Explanation: This parable tells us to be persistent with our God and always stay true to our faith. It also tells us that God will help anyone who is in desperation and that if you ask, He will give you what you need. It is both Window and Mirror because it reveals how God treats us, and how we should act towards God and his creations. Characteristic Part of Story Story This parable takes place in a town and is irrelevant to the story so a specific location is not given. The two characters of the story are the widow and the judge.
I believe he's using God to let everybody see that they're equal and perfect as Christianity says they are. This will persuade them because religion was an important factor in everyone's lives. Another point often overlooked is his use of pathos, even though this is one example, he had used this effortlessly throughout his speech, "We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality." This line just speaks so much because it can give you an idea about how horrible they were treated. And this just lets you sympathize with
We know what’s wrong or right good or bad. In feel God understand we are only human and we make mistake but God gave his only son so we can repent and do a better job at pleasing him. So we don’t have to be condemn to hell. It also tell us we are not to judge people and condemning everyone to hell because of your own personal reason is doing just
By striving to reach a utopian society, individuals avoid confrontation or a need for help, whether it be from God or man. Through a Christian perspective, It is extremely apparent that Dimmesdale yearns the image of perfection for himself, and continues to bottle in his necessity for salvation. Moreover, Dimmesdale adjudicated to fast and whip himself as self-punishment. This act is not infinitesimal, for it is a rather essential and substantial event in Hawthorne’s work. Secrecy has become a daily burden many have to carry.
He was a well known person in Elie’s community who had almost been captured by the Nazi’s, but luckily escaped. Moshe’s love for God changes and “[he] struggles desperately to believe that God is perpetually at work, even during the massacre of which he was nearly a victim” (Nurick, “Identity” paragraph 1). Moshe was once a man with a strong faith in God, but after seeing many awful things happen such as, people being killed and tortured and babies getting thrown in the air to be used as targets, he struggles to believe in God. He often pondered whether God was real, and if he was, why would he let such awful things happen to innocent people? It didn’t make sense.
At the concentration camp, at night some of the other prisoners would talk of God and how He works in mysterious ways. They believed that they were being tested of their faith. Elie had a much different view of God after all he has been through because he "...was not denying His existence, but I doubted his absolute justice"(45). Elie still thought that God existed, but now he did not think God had power over everything. He believed if God had power over everything, then he would have prevented all the evil things that the Nazis did to the Jews and his family.
Also near the middle of the book, Wiesel reflects on the faith of other Jews in the face of these events, saying that “some of the men spoke of God: His mysterious ways, the sins of the Jewish people, and the redemption to come. As for me, I had ceased to pray...I was not denying His existence, but I doubted His absolute justice” (45). It is apparent here that the effect of the Holocaust on the Jewish people’s faith was delayed on some level. Elie refuses to pray to the God that apparently abandoned him. This is personified when he says he doubts that God has absolute justice.
This shows that even through tough times, such as the Holocaust, hope is still there for others. He may not be standing up for someone but he still as a hope through the tough times that some people go through or already went through. In conclusion, you should stand up to the oppressor or tormentor and be the voice for those who don't have one. The statement by Elie Wiesel, "Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, not the tormented" is true because standing up for someone can make a significant change.
The entire book was about his survival through the concentration camps. He became imprisoned in these camps because of his religion, Jewish. But, he managed to still hold his faith while in the camp. Some examples of this were still praying at times of great fear, before meals, and trying their very hardest to celebrate their custom holidays. There were times when he questioned his religion as it wound him there, but he never lost his hope for the future.
