Dick believed it was for his “scams” he was doing on people in Nevada. Once they are in custody the officers start to question them about the night of the murder and the two “friends” turn on each other. Dick and Perry were both executed in 1965. “At the time not a soul was sleeping Holcomb heard them- four shotgun blasts that, all told, ended six human lives” (Capote 5).

War was a huge part that made Abner into who he was because he wasn 't at peace with himself when he was there. The first symbol that was noticed was fire. The fire symbol was a huge piece considering all Abner was known as was a “barn burner”. Another example for fire is when Abner lights the small fire at the campsite. As Faulkner continues, The element of fire spoke to some deep mainspring of his father’s being, as the element of steel or of powder spoke to other men, as the one weapon for the preservation of integrity, else breath were not worth the breathing, and hence to be regarded with respect and used with discretion (26).

It's understandable to see journalists vent out. It's their community that has been hurt. But for you and me, I think neither Charlie Hebdo matters, nor the 139 children. Just to be sure, there are 2000 people, mostly children and women, dead in Nigeria at the hands of Boko Haram. And there are many dying in Syria, Sudan, Congo daily, without a cry being raised for them.

Paul the Apostle, who was formerly a Christian killer, became an evangelist, missionary, church-planter and pastor for the cause of Jesus. He went into the pagan city of Athens, Greece and preached the gospel to secular philosophers in the Areopagus on Mars Hill. Paul told the crowds there that they needed to repent of their sin against their Creator (Acts 17:30) because “He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead” (17:31). God has “furnished proof”—that is “evidence.” God will “judge”—that is legal, courtroom terminology.
