He is a monster because not only his actions showed it, but his mind was consumed as well. Victor Frankenstein is the true monster in this novel, because he obtained this knowledge that only God should possess, he was not capable with his actions to fulfill this knowledge, and allowed his self-ambition and revenge to control him. Victor became a monster by allowing this knowledge of creation to consume his actions and mind and in the end, it destroyed him and everyone that he loved. I interpreted that Mary Shelley is trying to show us that allowing passion and desires to go uncontrolled in your life, will lead to destruction and turn you into a
The devil is a master strategist and everything he does is connected in more ways than one. Every move he makes is a chest game tactic to destroy the children of God. He uses his evil spiritual powers to attack the unsuspecting children of God, but he needs the assistance of the world systems to help him in this regard. Without the help of the world systems, Satan might struggle to touch us. The world systems make people reject the righteousness of Jesus, and when they succumb to the trap of the devil, he will use spiritual weapons to attack them.
With this, it can be said that “He must understand Himself perfectly, which includes a perfect understanding of all that He causes, which is everything.” It is understood, then, that inasmuch as we understand that the perfection of understanding is in God, the understanding of His creatures can be also attributed to Him perfectly. Thus, God knows all other things by knowing Himself inasmuch as all His effects are in His essence in an intelligible mode, for all things are in God virtually as effects in their cause. St. Thomas argues that the cause of all things is God. He states that
In othello a main theme shown is that people 's words can affect others thoughts and action. This is shown through iago and othello. Iago plants seeds of suspicion that desdemona is cheating on othello with cassio. Iago says comments such as, “if you are so found over her iniquity, give her / patent to offend, for if it tuch not you, it comes near / nobody Shakespeare 4.1.198-201), and other remarks about desdemona 's infidelity. Iago has no proof that desdemona is cheating but because of his persuasive words and honest reputation othello believes him.
For this reason, people have stereotyped the image of Satan as selfish, evil, and numb and loser. Nevertheless, John Milton in his book, “Paradise Lost” (Book 1), has transformed the image of Satan, and personified him as an unselfish, good, sensible and harmless angel. In western religious, Satan is considered as a selfish and evil spirit whose purpose in life is to destroy humanity by making people disobey God. He is well-known as the Creator`s enemy. In fact, in the Christian bible, Satan is a greedy and avaricious creature because he wants to share the glory of the almighty.
If we go to war, we must have a legitimate reason, such as “protecting innocent human life against an aggressor.” Whatever we do, we should do to glorify God. “God created the world according to His will and design, and deemed it ‘good’” He created the world perfect and without sin, however, the world changed when the serpent tempted Adam and Eve into eating from the Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil. Thus sin was born. Anger is connected to our own narcissism. “When it comes to injuries and insults to our honor, anger ‘takes it personally.’” We get mad and defensive when someone tries to put us down, or tries to hurt us, or tries to anger us.
Macbeth does not seek the guidance of his wife, nor her advice to commit these crimes; his actions are his own doings. There is no one to blame but himself for those numerous homicides. Macbeth and his wife pretend to “look like the innocent flower, but be the serpent undet’t (1.5) Their actions are criminal and evil, which is why they must hide behind lies to appear as righteous rulers. Macbeth’s whole life becomes a lie that is driven by evil and sin. Soon his false persona is seeping through and his actions come back to haunt
Satan compounds this fallacy by asserting, without evidence, that angels do not err. Satan asks rhetorically who “…can introduce Law and edict on us who, without law ere not…?” (5, lines 797-799) This is a seductive half-truth, submitted without documentation. The angels, having been continuously subject to God’s Law up to this time, have not erred. But they are about to commit the most grievous err possible in rebelling against God’s authority. Having argued that God usurped his authority, denigrated the angels rank in heaven’s hierarchy, and that submitting to God’s law is accepting the yoke of slavery, Satan asserts that God is demanding adoration for his abusive behavior claiming, “…much less for this to be our lord, and look for adoration to the abuse.
I classify Victor as a monster because through his lucid thought process, he abuses his power of knowledge. Through reanimation, he created and abandons his Monster, leaving society in the mix of the Monster’s rage and vengeance. I believe that it is through this that he destroys his family and the name of
This parable teaches modern Christians to not be rebellious to God and to not reject Jesus as the Messiah, the true Son of God. The tenants were rebellious and wanted the vineyard for themselves, even though it was not theirs to begin with. In the same way, people today should not want what is not theirs because it might be taken away. After all, all material possessions will be taken away, so do not get used to them without acknowledging where they came from first. This ties up directly with Matthew 6:19-24 where it says, “do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth…but lay up for yourselves treasure in heaven, where moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” In the same way, Christians should not be concerned when their material possessions are taken away because their real and only treasure lies in heaven, and God gave them what they needed, so he can surely take it away.
