Edwards elaborates on his claim and states if God were to spare the audience now, they would “immediately sink and plunge into a bottomless gulf” of Hell. This dramatic imagery shows the Puritans that God will no longer come to their rescue because the Puritans have chosen to serve Satan. Edwards tries to reach his audience by saying Hell is a “great furnace of wrath” where sinners belong. This description of Hell shows Edwards belief that sinners will pay for not serving God by facing God’s wrath in Hell. Each claim made by Jonathan Edwards motivates the audience to stop serving Satan in order to escape the “very misery to all eternity” that is Hell.
“Desired” means willing and strongly want to, it illustrates how strong the thoughts of Stephen of hurting his brother. “Device” also reveals his desire of his brother to feel disturbed about his critical words. However, Stephen’s unwilling of forgiving others’ sin eventually leads him to sin towards others. Even though Stephen sins to John with hatred, he eventually feels guilty and confesses his sin. On the last day before his son is hanged, Stephen goes up to the top of the mountain and immerses in his memories: “He

“I had nearly outgrown the shame and the guilt and the sense of unworthiness. This visit, this pilgrimage, made comprehensible, finally, the traces that remained and would always remain, like a needle.” The text Farewell To Manzanar, written by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and James D. Houston, illustrates Jeanne’s experience while being placed in an internment camp. Jeanne’s family was faced with multiple challenges through the process of being evacuated from their home to living in an internment camp. Throughout the text, Jeanne also explains how her life was difficult compared to how she believed non-Japanese lived in America. Though the American Government was afraid that Japanese Americans potential saboteurs, they were not justified for interning them because it was not fair to blame a whole society on a small portion action’s, the families were not provided with the proper care and attention, and the Japanese-American children were faced with racism that they may have not been able to handle.
However, she may have been right to not view Christianity and the people that came with it, white people, as something that would save her. Even though throughout many of his stories Apess’ looks at Christianity as a great thing he does not always view the white people, who spread its content, in a favorable light. “I commenced exhorting them to flee the wrath to come— (151).” While many would use this as another example of Apess trying to convert the Native Americans, it could be taken as him warning the tribe to flee before the white people take everything. While not stated in this edition, a later edition was published and Apess describes the tribe as follows: “I visited the Pequot Indians, a small remnant left from the massacre of the whites, who are now lingering in a miserable condition upon the banks of the river Thames, apparently unpitied and unknown (151).” This statement in itself says that Apess did not consider white people as even remotely good people, he was angry with them for what they had done to his people up to that point and what they continued to do even after the Native Americans started trying to fight
He was concerned with strengthening his inner self by examining and criticizing it. He was not concerned with finding what people would seek since this could only lead to a weak, sick, and ignorant soul. Therefore, Socrates remained committed to his guns and never told the court what it wanted to hear. Socrates’ philosophy had been based on morality; which is the desire to do good and reject evil. Telling the courts what they wanted to hear was immoral and against Socrates’ philosophy and morality.
Ethan would quietly lament this loss for as long as he lives. Not fully being able to express his true nature, a man with a refined mind who can’t show the world how he feels, and what he’s is passionate about. This can also be shown when the narrator states “His unfinished studies had given form to this sensibility and even in his unhappiest moments field and sky spoke to him with a deep and powerful persuasion”(Wharton 11). Second is Ethan hastily marring Zeena when she came to take care of his mother when she became sick, throughout the book you can easily pick up on the disconnect between the two. Although it is reasonable why he did so.
On the other side, one of the first voices in America who used religion as an argument against slavery, William Apess, an ordained Methodist minister, wrote his 1833 article “An Indian's Looking-Glass for the White Man” as a plea for racial equality in America. In the piece, Apess uses logic, reasoning, and a hearty dose of emotional appeal in combination with his knowledge of the Bible. He argues that while Jesus did not condemn slavery explicitly, Apess asks “Did you ever hear or read of Christ teaching his disciples that they ought to despise one because his skin was different from theirs?” and also asks of Jesus, that “Did not he who completed the plan of salvation complete it for the whites as well as for the Jews, and others?”(Apess, 2) Apess also argues that the children of God should love each other, and that all men are the children of God when he says “But you may ask who are the children of God? perhaps you may say none but white. If so, the word of the Lord is not true.” Apess closes his argument by remarking on the fact that “If the Lord Jesus Christ, who is counted by all to be a Jew,
In the novel, the community perceived that they could manufacture a precedent out of Hester. This is the equivalent with Assange; America is attempting to compose a lesson out of him for all whistleblowers. Hawthorne’s fictional novel ultimately portrays the fact that Hester one day just deserted her town; whether or not Assange will one day just disappear, is left for us to find out in the prospective future. Julian Assange is the martyr of his willingness to aid the American people and the world as a whole. Many perceive him as a hero, while others view him as an apostate.
Giving great details to express imagery in “Half Walls between Us” shows the different places and sights she has seen. Said describes many unusual events within her household and living, she did not picture to live where she is, but she accepts the half built home. According to Said, the walls were not fully built, barely met to her needs, as she said, “When a townsman finally showed me an empty place, the fact that the walls reached only to the level of my head seemed like a minor inconvenience,” (Said 79). Explaining the setting to readers helps visualize where she was, and the experiences she had with the weather and her temporary home. As Said talked about her neighbors and
