King James I of England believed that Kings have divine power and should be able to exercise it. (Document 2) It was thought that these Kings were sent down to rule by God himself. They were considered to be holy and should be treated like a god. (Document 5) This religious aspect to these absolute monarchs caused the people to have respect for their rulers. People thought “Fear God, Honor the King.” (Document 5) It meant that people should have faith in their Kings and fear the course that God has set for them.

Plus, the philosophical ideas of Christianity also fascinated people of the lower class in Rome. According to document 2, Jesus died for us, sinners, and people who believed Jesus raised him from the dead could be saved, and Lord is Lord of all, not just for Jews. And its idea of salvation which is not in Roman myth might encourage the lower
John Proctor Helped his friends be successful and cared for their safety. Proctor says “ You are the high court, your word is good enough! tell them i confessed myself; say proctor broke his knees and wept like a woman, but my name cannot!”. In the quote John Proctor does not want written proof that he was a witch because he wants to protect his friends and not throw them under the bus. This means he cares for his friends and is truly a good man.
Moreover, he uses pathos because the puritans basically based their society on faith, they reached their emotional level because the puritans god was a vengeful god and they feared him. He tries to convince puritans to be a good example, and desires other towns to look upon theirs as an idolatry Puritan community. He uses persuasive diction and figures of speech to reinforce his idea of a “city upon a hill”, which is having absolute unity and conformity in able for the colony to prosper. Finally, in Patrick Henry speech, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death!”, wants for people to go to the war, so they won’t be seen as somebody weak, he goes for that we go to war not for the love of bloodshed but to prove them their strength than they think. In other words, he wanted the people to feel good about their troops and what they need in life.
Chivalry on the other hand was a code by which the European knights would follow (Doc E). Chivalry was a code where knights would vow to do no wrong, be loyal to the King, to give mercy to those who ask for it, and to be courteous and helpful to women (Doc E). Knights beliefs were also very religion centered, as shown in The Son of Roland “God, I acknowledge my guilt and I beg for Thy mercy for all the sins, greater and lesser, which I have committed from the hour my birth until this day … Angels descend out of heaven and come to him” (Doc
Masculinity is defined by the four virtues, self-control, wisdom, justice, and courage, basically, the same virtues Paul elaborately teaches Timothy to consider when selecting overseers (1. Tim. 3:1-10). The adoration of masculinity proves some problems presenting Jesus, without the receiver focuses on an emasculated victim (Conway, 2008, pp89-104). Jesus is a strong masculine character through all Gospels, but a true masculine hero would have found a last minute way down from the cross and not die in disgrace, or at least, he would have died fighting before reaching the cross.
In the mandate given by Jesus in Matthew 25, God is seated on his throne, separating those who he deems worthy for heaven and those who deserve hell in eternity. He tells the righteous that since they helped those in need, they would inherit the Kingdom of God, as they inadvertently were helping God himself. He then proceeds to explain that the people who ignored those in need, were unfit for heaven as they refused to help God, denying both solidarity and kinship. Matthew 25 parallels the point Pedro Arrupe tried to exhibit through his speech in 1973, "Men & Women for Others", which he gave to wealthy, powerful Jesuit alumni. In his speech, Arrupe explains how they should actively help those in need fighting against taking advantage of the poor and unjust laws.
Faith and righteousness were two things one could not live without, and the religious norms were to be followed. Because of how closely religion and moral was tied together, suicide was considered morally wrong due to its classification as a sin. Hamlet himself claims in the «O´ that this too, too solid flesh would melt» soliloquy that he would commit suicide had it not been deemed wrong by the church. In other words, the play Hamlet treats suicide as a
The story that has its main character as Goodman Brown, a rather pious and young naïve man, entwines both religion and the fear of evil. Edward considers a direct approach the best method of achieving an adequate portrayal of God’s anger with proliferating sin as opposed to the rather gentle protestation about sinful behavior that Hawthorne applies. Edward is of the notion that his sermon as a clergy would change the behavior of his congregation by reminding them that their unforeseen ultimate fate of falling into Hell for their unbelief is in the hands of God. He insists that wicked men can do nothing to prevent God from casting them to Hell as is in the statement, “Men’s hands cannot be strong when God rises. The strongest have no power to resist him, nor can any deliver out of his
If some of the youth were not there on Sunday, I went on social media, sent emails as well as texted pictures of the flyers. On the flyer it also stated that it was a competition. When we do competitions in the youth we tend to get more participation. The competition will be between Sunday school classrooms. The winner of the competition will win donuts the following Sunday in their Sunday school class.
I have been convinced that Hesiod is indeed a man that was influenced by the kingdom of darkness of the spiritual realm. Everything he writes is inspired by the governor of such kingdom or his workers, and I know I might be mocked at this, but truth is truth whether it is believed or not. It is indeed easier to believe he is a mere poet that writes myths and metaphors using the word “gods” in order to explain his worldview. Nevertheless, reasoning in this manner is ignoring the spiritual structures in his works that influence the mind of our spirits to deceive humanity from the truth. His view of mankind’s past and future is basically about no hope or significance for human beings.
• In this case, Mr. Reynolds was following the rules of his religion because he was believing that it was a way to please his god. • Mr. Reynold has the right to have his own belief, but once he committed the act of bigamy he broke the law. • In 1786 Jefferson wrote a bill for the Establishment of Religious Freedom, which basically says that there should be a separation of church and state. • The U.S government says that giving certain rights to a specific religion is wrong. • The laws of the land must apply to everyone because it can allow peace and have exclusive control of the territories.
Their god Yahweh had ultimate power, instead of believing that the god might serve you from only rituals and sacrifice, his followers also had to perform good deeds also known as the Ethical Behavior. The Israelis also lived by the Mosaic Code of Law, which had certain features such as an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. This led to Christianity because of the believe in only one god and committing good deeds to receive help and eternal life. 3. Why did Sparta develop into a conservative military state?
The Catholics get their idea of purgatory from the old ways of praying and having communion celebrations for them. The Roman Catholic Church believes that people who died in the love of God will meet the tripersonal God and live with Him in the beauty of heaven. But if people push away God’s saving love they go to Hell and are permanently separated from God. They believe that if man loves God and their neighbor then they don’t go to hell. The need to show love to ones neighbor shows the Catholic’s use of good
