But, Luke is asked if he loves his daughter more than himself, because it would be a ‘love in weakness’, however God is reminded that it is similar to his love of humankind. As said in a review of the overall story, “the conversations seem a natural outgrowth of Luke’s faith, that faith based in rituals outlined in intimate detail in the first half of the story [...] and when Luke’s faith is tested by Jennifer’s car accident, he will fall back on his spiritual life and act, not think”
The author shows this with all of the feelings, facts and descriptions he uses. This book is very important because it teaches the reader things they didn’t know well or proves to them that they are wrong if they believed that the Holocaust was not harmful. No one had the right to treat these people in that way and no one has the right to ban this book because this will be censorship. Night also shows the truth about the Holocaust and teaches us that this period in history should be prevented from happening
Critics have argued that while the explicit message conveying in some of her poems is that “love of God is of greater weight than love of husband or children”, the underlying notion is that she gives “equal if not greater weight to the bonds of marriage and parenting” (Hall 188). In “To My Dear and Loving Husband”, Bradstreet discusses the idea of salvation. In puritanism, marriage and the procreation of children is viewed as one of the duties for puritan couple, and that people have no control over their destiny in afterlife. Yet, Bradstreet’s tone suggests that the virtuous love is not a duty but a blessing as she glorifies her love with her husband. Furthermore, love can eventually earn them a place in heaven and lead to heavenly redemption.
Along with this concept, is the idea portrayed in Ephesians 5:1 that believers are to be imitators of God, because they are His children. This calls for the action of honoring the heavenly Father as well. I John 3:10 states, “In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth his brother.” Obedience and love to other adopted sons of God is key to showing honor to the Father (Grudem
Heaven to certain people means different things, for some it means where one goes in the afterlife and for others it is just general goodness in life or death. Throughout Macbeth Shakespeare uses heaven the same way, but with a variety of different meanings and. In Macbeth, heaven means the afterlife and also an almighty, all knowing power. Heaven is first used to show how fearless Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are towards the afterlife despite all the murders and bad decisions they make. Towards the end of the play it is used to show the fear they should have because heaven knows everything that they have done and will show no mercy once they are dead.
To the woman, this may seem like the action of a heartless person. What she does not realize is that it may be her husband’s way of expressing love for his son. It leads her to think that death brings out the worst in people - not only was her marriage failing but she also realized many more differences between her and the man. She also likely despises death for taking her son. Other than losing his soul, she also had to lose him to the soil and the earth.
4:9). In conclusion, virtue is a gift given by God that is pure, lovely, and praiseworthy; virtue can be taught by parents, through the Bible and example; and it is up to the student of virtue to choose virtue over the things of the world. Of the many things this world needs more of, virtue is one of the most needed. If all parents would teach their children about virtue and show them how to live in virtue,
Extremism is a plague of the human mindset that typically leads to suffering, and it must be acknowledged and kept in check so society can prosper. Religions are typically blamed for causing extremists to perform their horrific acts, and they are not completely to blame. Religion can bring out extremists and give them a goal or idea to follow, but it does not create the mindset. Humans have possessed a natural tendency to take things to the extremes, as evidenced by the Crusades and and the American Revolution. In general, these human tendencies lead to a useless loss of life.
But I know that as a Christian we should share the love of Jesus to them and not push what they are feeling aside. I believe they want to feel like they belong and accepted so they think that doing this drastic change will help. Little to they know that it is not what they are looking
When Desdemona marries Othello, she neglects to ask for her father’s permission for the courtship and wedding.

Desdemona and Othello’s courtship seriously offends Desdemona’s father, which puts the both of their lives at risk. Desdemona’s father states that he should kill her for her disloyalty from getting married without his permission.
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.
