It is revealed that as soon as he had an affair with Abigail, he confessed to Elizabeth the next day because of the guilt he was carrying around. Also in Act 4, he was highly conflicted over whether or not to confess to working with the devil to escape death. In the end, he decided lying was a sin he did not want to commit and chose to die a honest man rather than survive as a deceptive man. So in the end it is clear to see that John Proctor still is a good man despite his short-lived affair with Abigail. He was an honest, good-hearted man who wished for nothing more than to live a good life with his wife and children.
Yet all that time he had still been a loyal follower and leader in the making. He stays grateful and does whatever Beowulf last dying breaths wish for. “/Then he brought their treasure to Beowulf, and found/ His famous king bloody, gasping / For breath.” Lines (810-812). This shows that Wiglaf had one wish and that is to bask in the victory he’d won with his lord. In doing so he proved himself worthy.
He comes up with the several suggestions about piety: “to prosecute a wrongdoer is pious and not to prosecute is impious”; “what all the gods hate is impious, and what they all love is pious”; “where there is piety there is also justice” (Plato (1997), p.88.). In Euthyphros actions to prosecute his father he relies on this statement. Even though, he considers himself as pious man, Euthyphro is pious in prosecuting his father. Look at Euthyphros notion “to prosecute a wrongdoer is pious and not to prosecute is impious”. Let imagine this case as his father is guilty and he would hide it from authorities, from
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.
Casy had multiple similarities to Jesus Christ. Casy was an astounding preacher in his lifetime. Casy was so great at it that he would get the people “ talkin’ in tongues” and “baptise them” (Steinbeck 21). Casy was a person who lived a life in a way that Jesus did. He would strive to live the best way that he could.
This incident shows bravery because he accepted his fate and stayed mute. He knew in his heart he was innocent and did not want to lie to stay alive. Furthermore, the noble feature of courage was also expressed in John Proctor when he chooses to be hanged over living in shame with his name on the church door. “God does not need my name nailed upon the church! God sees my name; God knows how black my sins are!
Jeremiah never stops showing Davy his absolute support of Davy as a son nor his irrevocable and forgiving love as his father. In a study of father-son relationships, Ginsberg claims “The meaning of father in a man’s life profoundly effects how he views himself as a person…” (109). With the image of Jeremiah Land as their father, the Land kids have no choice but to view their selves as loved individuals of worth. Jeremiah’s constant, unconditional love shown equally to each child is second only to God’s love for His
All have sinned; however, the Lord’s invitation remains the same. “Come to Me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11: 28) And, His offer to the wanderer from the house of God hasn’t changed. “If anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” And “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (I John 2:1; I John 1: 9) If your heart is no longer right in the sight of God, “repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you. (Acts 8:
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. God loves all of his children, and he wouldn't want evil things to happen to them. If He had the power to, He would have stopped the horrors Elie was facing. Elie is truly starting to question his faith and the power of
The ancients trusted their wisdom in making decisions during untimely situations and their strength and protection in times of war. The gods are not perfect, like any father, as they have their human qualities and were portrayed as the humans themselves by the authors of these myths to help show how the people interacted with each other and how they thought. Much like today in the Christian faith how God is looked to for guidance, protection, and strength. The difference is God is perfect and divine and will not make a mistake in his plan for our salvation. He is the ultimate father for us all and even sacrificed his only son , Jesus Christ, to become an infant with all the human qualities, except sin, and die on a cross to pay our debt for our sins, which is the ultimate sign of His fatherly love for us
Job a man after my own heart, just when I thought that there were no people of the Bible who also felt as though God had turned his back on the poor. I enjoyed the read about Job from the book of Sugirtharajah in Chapter 10. His plight aims to enlighten his readers about the scrutiny, injustices and oppression of Latin America, its people and their own social context etc. Gustavo Gutierrez goes on to inform us about the "The Book of Job" Job is a deeply human and religious man who takes seriously the reality of unjust suffering. Job 's faith prompts him to inquire into the possibilities of finding an appropriate language about God.
The Lord is the source of love and loves unconditionally even giving his only son so that all may have eternal life. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3.16). God loves the world so much that he gave his only son as a sacrifice to atone for our sins. God is a loving god who is full of mercy, not a cruel god that wants to see the world
Finally, the last characteristic Simon possesses is that he is devotedly faithful. He is an enormous believer of God and loves sharing his faith with other people. This is proven during various conversations with Reverend Russell and his best friend, Joe Wenteworth. When Simon is talking to the reverend, he suggests that God made him the way he is for a reason and says, “I think I 'm God 's instrument - that he 's gonna use me to carry out his plan.” Despite the reverend not agreeing to this statement, Simon still has faith he is. The last occurrence when Simon is faithful is when he is continually encouraging Joe to be joyful.
I believe that he died on the cross to save us from our sins. I believe that Jesus did have human feelings and did ask the Lord to help and take away the pain. Jesus asked to not go to the cross and if there was another way. I believe that he faced all the pain for us. Jesus knew the next step and what it would bring, yet he did it and followed through with it for the love of us, the sinful people, that made him have to suffer for all the sinners the first place, the ones whose love held him to the cross and whose sins nailed him to it, yet he didn 't take shortcuts that could have freed him of the cross he drank from the cup so that he would follow his father and save
After Peter told him to repent Simon then asked Peter to pray for him so that nothing evil would happen to him. I can apply this verse to my life by repenting when I sin, because ultimately I am wicked and need to ask for forgiveness for the Lord and it will be granted to me. Although, I do disagree with Simon and I think that one should pray to the Lord for my their own forgiveness and no one else needs to do it for them. In verse twenty two, the phrase “if possible, the intention of your heart may be forgiven you” stood out to me. This line is not saying that one repents are they are automatically forgiven, it says if possible meaning, if it pleases the
