Rather than religion being utilized as a sort of hardware or gadget for getting what one needs, as was valid for Euthyphro's situation, Socrates trusts the basic role of genuine religion is to carry one's own life into amicability with the will of God. Religion and profound quality, in his view, are so firmly related that neither one of the ones can exist separated from the other. Dissimilar to the Sophists, who were familiar with think about the requests of ethical quality as just the wants of the general population who planned them, Socrates has faith in a standard of profound quality that is something more than the human conclusion.

Though they are “costs,” all of these things aren't bad, and they all help you build Godly character traits. Such as, humbleness, kindness, and Spiritual knowledge. “Cheap grace,” is all of the gifts from God such as forgiveness, absolution, and communion, without the “costs.” This idea of “cheap grace” is obviously Biblical wrong, yet was, and still is, being preached in some churches. 3.

Jesus teaches us His way of love through the love of one another so that we show that we are His. We are not envious, rather we are appreciative of what He has given us.

Heavenly Father, please protect my husband’s state of mind and physical well-being because of praying this prayer.

Although Whitman would agree with Winthrop that within a community there is a unifying force created by the individuals, he would argue that Winthrop’s imaginings of having a community modeled after god is not adequate because it will result in unfairness. “A Model of Christian Charity” establishes a representation of a community working together, rather than, working by themselves. With the help of each other and by following God’s will, the community shall be successful and harmonious. It is essential to note the importance of a relationship between man and god as god stands as the one true source of authority in this community. Winthrop explains the importance of loving God.
For this public speaking reaction paper, I choose to go see my Pastor Milton Mendez give a sermon at his church located at 2105 Palisades Ave, Union City New Jersey on December 6, 2015. The main topic of his sermon was about being truly free. He started the sermon by stating that it was a continuation of the past sermon. He quickly went on to describe the definition of being free and gave a small overview of what he was going to cover on that particular date. Through the presentation, Pastor Milton uses a visual aid in the form of an overhead projector.
People try to have these traits because they want to model God and feel grateful for these characteristics. Although they pray and worship God, it seems like the author believes they are actually worshiping the divine image since these characteristics seem to be what people look up to. According to Blake, “Mercy has a human heart, pity a human face” (9-10). Mercy and pity is two of the virtue that have human characteristics in this poem.

So in a real life situation, God will help my enemy that I highly dislike, but when I need his help, instead of condemning me for hating my brother his arms will be wide open for both of us. This message can also apply to my friends in a way that friendship works. So when a couple of my friends are in need one will choose to help both and not just help one just how God did with the Ninevites
If man were to disobey God, what would be the consequences? Why is it that man has to obey God? Israelites believe that if man obeys God 's commands, the best of fortune will come to those who obey, while for those who do not obey and forget to follow God 's commands, the worst comes to them. Theocracy is shown in the Biblical world, God chooses those whom he believes have the ability to guide those in the world, but those who do not follow Gods commands suffer the consequences. Israelites value obedience and the laws established by god because it defines good character to those who obey, but those who sin, punishment is defined by their acts.
