Equally if not more important would be the other sin both men are guilty of, blasphemy. Blasphemy in simple terms is to believe and act in a way, that one considers themselves higher than God, to whom Christians believe is the ultimate power; in many religions it is a sin that can result in being excommunicated entirely; not too ironically it was what Jesus himself, was accused of and one of the main reasons as to why the Jewish people wanted to kill Him in the first place. Blasphemy is more than simply taking the Lord’s name in vain, as it is in reality a sin of extreme arrogance and pride, because the translation of this sin is to claim that God is wrong and man, who in the hierarchy of things, is a weaker lesser lifeform, knows more than God. Adam was tempted into eating the forbidden fruit which came from the Tree of Knowledge because he believed he deserved to know as much as God.
Instead of trying to undermine racism here, Shakespeare is encouraging it. Aaron is an incredibly evil character, with very little moral values, so much so that “if one good deed in all my life I did, I do repent it from my very soul”(Act V, Scene III, Lines 191-192). He is a powerful character, which is what allows him to be able to carry out such awful deeds. He makes love to Tamora while she is married to the Emperor, carries out any evil acts Tamora want him to do, and frames Quintus and Martius; all things he would not have been able to do as a someone with less power. This promotes the idea that other races should not be allowed to have so much power.
Rumors flew regarding how Dimmesdale got his scarlet letter: he carved it himself out of guilt, Chillingworth’s strong hatred increased its power, and that it was burnt onto him out of regret. All these rumors reflected the pain Dimmesdale got because he only thought of protecting his own reputation at first. Revealing that hiding anything and only to protect personal benefit will destroy one’s spirit and soul. Dimmesdale’s death impacted many characters. Chillingworth had no more sin to feed on and therefore withered; Pearl, found a happy new life in Europe.
When hitler was young, he lost his faith and felt hatred to churches and that when he had a dream of becoming a leader (Keegan 38). Hiteler and the natzis ruined so much of the world that it was unbelievable. His destruction almost brought a end to certain human races and lost the hope that we all had once. The Holocaust was supposed to be nameless. Hitler had become a chancellor in January 1933 but the people did not want him as thier chancellor (Colbert 2)
For the first time in the poem, Beowulf is not only presented for his qualities, but also for his flaws. As written above, Beowulf is so proud and arrogant that these characteristics will lead him to downfall. It is said in fact, that his main flaw was excessive hubris, which like all kinds of excess can be compared to a vice. Moreover, if the poem is read from a Christian point of view, pride is the worst enemy of man. Hrothgar knows that and for this reason, he warns Beowulf, but at the end, the “divine” hero complicates his life with his own hands with something that only ordinary people have, and namely flaws and
That 's what they inflicted on us.” (Richard Wagamese 81) “ He hath disgraced me and hindered me half a million, laughed at my losses, mocked at my gains, scorned my nation... Hath not a Jew 's eyes... If you prick us, do we not bleed?
Hilary assumes everything she hears are true because she assumes jewish people are such bad people and they deserved to endure all the pain, Hilary thinks this because Brad tells her all these things about jewish people and how they are so greedy and lazy. I do not like Hilary because she jumps to conclusion about things not knowing half the story. “‘“Do you recognize all Jews as children of Satan?” “I do!”’” In this section of the story Hilary is believing Brad about what Jewish people and why they supposably are not acceptable.
Although they are derived from different cultures and faiths, both Noah’s Ark story and The Epic of Gilgamesh portray the wrath of God or gods on disobedient and ignorant people by a flood. God is portrayed as annoyed and enraged in Noah’s Ark story and in The Epic of Gilgamesh. The Gods are dissatisfied about mankind’s actions. However in Noah’s Ark, God sees that in every human’s heart there are only evil intentions and people are marrying whomever they desire despite having morals and respect for other people’s wives. In the story God reinstates the fact that he has made man mortal and that they will die one day, but he still wishes to kill them now because they a disobeyed him.
Also, the phrase “gross injustice cruelty” makes America’s choices sound ten times worse; which is what Douglass was trying to do. Another example of word choice is when Douglass says “To chime in with the popular theme would be treason most scandalous and shocking, and would make me a reproach before God and the world”(Para.5). He says this to show the audience that he does not support what the US is doing and that it is patently wrong. Also that the audience are sinning and should not celebrate sin. Douglass says “Scandalous and shocking” to emphasize how hypocritical America really is.
7) Were there any instances in the timeline where something could have been done to prevent Amy’s death? If so, when? • When Amy told her coworker she was beaten with a bat some type of authority should have been contacted immediately • When Vincent called Amy’s job repeatedly, they should have called the police and reported him for harassment • Vincent came down to Amy’s job and started an argument with her which could become trespassing and he may have been arrested • When Amy went to her home the final time to pick up items for her children, there should have been at least two people who went in with her. Everyone knew he owned a gun and her going into that home was honestly a huge mistake.
Death, can tear anyone apart, but when it's for a cause it can open a family, friends, or even a nation's eyes. When a national icon dies for a cause it can a can make the whole nation take a step back and look at what's really going on. An excellent examples are John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr, or in this case John Proctor from The Crucible, by Arthur Miller. In this play people are being hanged for an accusation of witchcraft, which is necessary to restore the social justice in Salem. This play can be compared to history, with information about the play itself, and lastly how the tragic hero's death makes a difference in this play.
Your reputation is everything, or at least to John Proctor it was. You want people to look at you in the best way possible. You also want to be honest and stand up for what is right. Even if someone wants you to do the wrong thing, you should stand up for what you know is right. That is exactly what John Proctor did.
