And God decreed that man should have one body, one head, two arms and two legs… that each hand should have four fingers and one thumb…” (10-11, Wyndham). This showed how the Waknuk community almost brainwashed their youth into thinking that if God’s image of you was not to His standards then you shall be sent away
The clergyman Josiah Strong claimed that God especially trained the “Anglo-Saxon race” as it was their job to take care of the world’s future in which the whites would eventually emerge as the superior race.

As Samuel looked upon David, he heard God voice "This is the one I have chosen." The prophet anointed David as future king who was to succeed Saul, and Samuel returned home. Amazingly, even with this amazing news, David did not change his behavior. He immediately went back to tend to his sheep and showed them the usual tender care, as he had done up till that point.

It is through man’s writing in which Equality came to understand “the blessed thing which (he) had called (his) curse” (98). This writing had such a positive impact on Equality that he decided to “write the first chapter of new history of man” so that it would be eternal (101). It is through his writing, that Prometheus will be remembered not as a number, but as a hero who vanquishes collectivism.

"I do not talk about the poor, I say people who have greatness of power in the case of satisfying the pleasure".

His respect is shown with the number of crowns: when he was in England: "at Easter he wore it at Winchester, at Pentecost at Westminster, and at Christmas at Gloucester" (The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle).Moreover, William's establishment of new condition is unbelievable because he kind of flight over his kingdom like prevailed through England realized everything to the deep side detailing order to prove himself.

He first writes the king is to minister justice which involves punishing those who commit evil and rewarding those who promote good. Next he writes the king is to make laws and make sure the laws are obeyed by subjects and maintain peace both within the kingdom and with other kingdoms. James finishes by writing the king is to promote and keep the Religion and defend the state with its people (2). James lists these off as the important qualities of a king very clearly.

And also how Romney, how he addresses the people and how he talked to them was the same or familiar to
In colonial America, written documents were one of the few primary sources of this time. All the way back to John Winthrop’s “A Model of Christian Charity’’ in the 1630’s. Winthrop’s sermon shows how the only way their colony will succeed is through God. Jonathan Edwards sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” shows people how powerful God is and what he capable of doing. George Washington shows that honesty, respect, and self-discipline are all values that colonial people live off of to survive in their new environment.
Belief of the Greater Good Science, reason, and observation of the physical world confirmed Jonathan Edwards 's deeply spiritual vision of a universe filled with the presence of God.
