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.
Arthur Miller's utilization of incongruity in The Crucible shows exactly how tricky the human species is. He makes a situation that spins around the congregation and how the general population must take after their decrees and keep their dedication to God, however all they truly do conflicts with their ten edicts. John submitted infidelity by yearning for Abbigail when he was at that point wedded to Elizabeth and had constructed a family with her. Abigail is desirous of Elizabeth for having John and her yearning for retaliation drives her to lie and control the town as she did. It is essentially unexpected how all through every one of the allegations and guards, everyone would lecture their confidence in God and the congregation yet whatever they did was definitely not what they were required to.

This man was Atticus, an island in a sea of misrepresentation of religion.

Humans despise legalism.While first deceptively empowering, it soon proves petty and impossible. This haughty attitude eventually drives people away like the plague. Harper Lee analyzes the religious arrogance of the time powerfully through Miss Maudie’s story.
Abani shows that society pressured him into seeing someone die. They did it to try to teach him a lesson, when in reality it didn't gain Abani anything. Society however, was being pressured by their religion, and what they thought was right and wrong. Hughes was persuaded into following what he saw others do, due to pressure. Hughes was one of the few kids who really wanted to see Jesus, but ended up lying to not keep his aunt and other adults waiting.
“His wife, Hera (who was also his sister, by the way), was understandably jealous”(Christian and Mazunik 9). This quote shows that the author is explaining how the gods are dysfunctional. No one nowadays marries their own sibling. The tone that that the author helps us helps us figure out her purpose, and by figuring out her purpose, we can figure out the theme. In this myth, she uses a very comical tone, as if she is making fun of the gods, to highlight their flaws.

After the heavy losses of the first battle with Roland, Marsile returns to his wife who is weeping and questioning her gods.12 This eventually translates to her converting to Christianity and taking the name Juliana, but this is after we see a little bit more of her as a Muslim.13 Bramimonde, as the wife of Marsile, is shown to be loyal to him, weeping when he is hurt12, blaming the gods for their plight13, and doing whatever she can to fight back when her tower is under attack14. Through these actions, Bramimonde appears to be an excellent wife and through hew doubt of her religion, she is able to be saved and finds herself in the same role as before, but this time as a Christian named Juliana and as the wife of Charles.15 While her relationship with Charles is not elaborated on, based on how the book treats the relationship between Muslim families and Christian families, it can be assumed that her relationship with Charles is at least as good as, if not better, than her prior one with
In Candide, irony occurs as the clergy, the Inquisitor, executes citizens for opposing philosophical views. "Moral" and trusted religious leaders engage in sinful acts with mistresses, thieves, and homosexual activities. In addition, The Pope, a renowned religious leader, has a daughter despite his religious vows of celibacy. Voltaire uses this irony to ridicule the hypocrisy and corruption he viewed in the church. Bray's also uses irony in which Taylor added a superficial statement during prayer for safety.
But not really saved.” (Hughes, 299). Adults gain a spiritual experience as they become older, but with that experience, they also lose a sense of wonder and innocence that a child still has.

He didn’t even believe in Jesus anymore. “So I decided that maybe to save further trouble, I’d better lie too, and say that Jesus had come, and get up and be saved.
The first, and perhaps largest, issue regarding the rebellious attitudes of American people during the 1960’s was the dysfunction or absence of the family or family members. Today, this issue still plagues many families and the minds of the children that belong to these deviant families. The Lord outlines the perfect model of a family. “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord … Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her … Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right” (Ephesians 5:22,25, 6: 1 English Standard Version). If a man does not love Christ first and love his wife more than himself, the children will suffer.
“There’s nothing remarkable in their making a man foolish, in women winning men To sin, for Adam our father was deceived just so, and Solomon, and also Samson, Delilah was his death and later David Endured misery for Batheba’s beauty. Women ruined them: how wonderful if men could love them well, but never believe them!” (130). Ever since Adam & Eve days, females have been seen as femme fatale. As “An alluring and seductive woman, especially one who leads men into compromising and dangerous situations.”- (dictionary). Sir Gawain expresses his thoughts and advices his audience that it is ok to love woman but never believe their stories nor fall for for their seduction otherwise a permanent scar will be carried upon sinners.
