Topic 2 Evil is corrupted and lively in the world. The bible refers to evil people throughout the bible. God clearly shows his love for his people in and out, but since we live on earth Satan and evil influence us on earth heavily. Many believe that it is unfair because of the evil things that are done. In Psalm 5:4 it says,"For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness; with you, evil people are not welcome"(Biblica Inc,NIV). Sometimes we can not even help it if someone is in trouble. Although life can be unfair God proves to us that he loves us and will not allow such evil to overtake us. In second Thessalonians 3:2 it says," and pray that we may be delivered from wicked and evil people, for not everyone has faith"(Biblica Inc,NIV).…show more content…
Mr. Waters was not only a rapist but abusive too. He causes Marshall to become evil in the first place. The harsh treatment Marshall was put through, getting raped and abusing him caused his life to fall into destruction. One afternoon Lavinia hears odd noises coming from the privy and out comes Mr. Waters kicking at Marshall to get up. Lavinia describes what she saw,"When I peaked in I found Marshall partially clothed, sitting in the corner on the floor(Grissom,85)." The worst part was that he got away with the abuse and rape for so long. Marshall wanted to get out of it so badly before when he had turned eleven he had asked his mother to let him go to real school. Marshall pleads for his mother to send him to real school which frightens Miss Martha and begins to ask questions instead Marshall gets defensive (Grissom,80). After being afraid Marshall threw a wine glass at Mama Mae and stormed out of the room, and everyone is the room could tell there was something wrong about the situation and no one could help him. In 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says," Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men...will inherit the kingdom of God "(Biblica Inc, NIV). Mr. Waters will not inherit the kingdom of God obviously because of his wrong doings towards Marshall. At the end of Mr. Waters life, he got abusive with Dory and slashed her on her face and pulled open her shirt. Dory began to yell for help and once Ben had gone down with a sledgehammer to help her she came back up running. Lavinia saw Dory storming into the room for help with blood dripping from her nose and the front of her shirt torn (Grissom, 92). Dory told Lavinia to get help and thankfully and Mr. Waters was taken care of. Mr. Waters was killed for his wrong actions and once he was dead, his actions effected many others to continue this
