He allows his bitterness to take control and blames God for all the destruction caused by the Nazis. The Day of Atonement arrives, and Eliezer’s father does not allow him to fast. However, Eliezer decides to turn this into a “symbol of rebellion, of protest against Him” (69). He no longer accepts God’s silence, and he decides to no longer accept
In Chapter 43 of Second Isaiah, the prophet argues that “even when proper sacrifices have been offered, they have not been satisfying because of other iniquities” (Ackerman 1016). The people of Israel believe that if they do everything they can to make sure that their sacrifices are worthy and appropriate, God will accept them. However, Isaiah points out that the behavior and actions beneath the sacrifice will not be ignored. Similarly, in Chapter 58 of Third Isaiah, the Lord speaks to the prophet and seeks to define what is considered false and true worship. According to the book of Third Isaiah, “The Lord rejects fasting that is accompanied by oppression (v.3) and strife (v.4).” (Ackerman 1037).
He believes he is serving justice and doing the right thing but in reality he is carrying out his own form of justice. Nathan believes that he doesn’t have to be compassionate or caring for the Congolese as long as he is spreading the word of God. He uses this ideology to justify his action and to drive himself on his quest. This relates to the poem. “A White Man’s Burden” by Rudyard Kipling because Nathan and Kipling both believe they are doing what they have to do.
None of Odysseus’s men were really loyal to him because of their lack of obedience and honesty. In this episode the men learn that their disobedience causes them their lives when Helios the sun god realizes his scared cattle had been killed. Helios furious goes to Zeus and begs him to punish Odysseus’s men, or he will take the sun and go “down to the House of Death and blaze the sun among the dead” (Odyssey 12. 412). Zeus with no choice left but to punish Odysseus’s men whips up a storm and strikes his thunder bolt to destroy Odysseus’s ship soon after they leave the island.
As David was the leader, his word was law. It was believed that God spoke to him, so each spoken word coming from him was a message from God. A situation that led to the Davidians downfall was David's apocalyptic beliefs. He spoke of the world turning against the Cult and not accepting them. In response he obtained firearms, explosives and such.
Driven by hunger, the men ignore his warnings to not feast on the cattle. The mutiny angers Helios who threatens to cease shining if he receives no payment. In the text it states, “The disobedience angers the sun god, who threatens to stop shining if payment is not made for his lost cattle” (p.g 937). To mollify Helios’ anger, Zeus sinks Odysseus’ ship. All the men die except for Odysseus.
For example, Reverend Hale, after questioning John Proctor about why his last born son isn't baptized, he gets,"I see no light of God in the man"(1242) as a comment. Hale response seriously with, "The man's ordained, therefore, the light of God is in him." (1242) Hale was new, so he didn't understand that the preacher John was talking about, Parrish, was a greedy,prideful, and selfish man, though the audience and John knew.Outward appearances in people may be extremely contrasted to the inward truth of the person...someone could be smiling and laughing, but inward could be miserable. The abundant examples of irony in Arthur Miller's play The Crucible hints that appearances can often be deceiving from reality. Verbal irony has created confusion and suspicion because people say things, when they mean an entirely different definition.
The coming of Christ had a purpose, namely to serve the Lord and carry on his work. Similarly, we get the prophecy of Christ works as a priest (Psalms 110:4; Hebrew 5:6,10). Similarly, the Messianic Psalms included a prediction of the rejection of Christ. Christ was rejected by the Jews just as it was written in Psalms 118:22-23; Matthew 21:42; Mk. 12:10-11: “The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner”.
Obedience is Better than Sacrifice 1 Samuel 15: 20 – 28 In this passage, Saul’s obedience was again tested and again he failed. He has no power, even his kingly power, to alter God-given instructions to suit himself (vv. 4-9) • God commanded King Saul (v. 3) to attack and kill the Amalekites for what they did to Israel when they intercepted them as they came up from Egypt. • God’s instruction is “to attack the Amalekites and totally destroy everything that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.
10) Line Genesis 2: 16-17 “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” suggest that God gives us free will and everything but as long as we follow the rules of God we can get everything we need. After Adam and Eve didn’t follow the rules of God humans were kicked out of the garden. Lines like 10) Genesis 9:11: “Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.” Suggest how evil is not created by god but was caused by humans therefor it is fault and our responsibility to fix it. To concludes these lines of the bible suggest that if we use our free will to cause suffering we have to use our free will to stop the
