I never thought you but a good man, John - only somewhat bewildered” (55). This quote reveals, Elizabeth’s genuine understanding and faithfulness in her husband. She believes that John carries the burden of his own guilt, which is a lucid indication that he has a sense of morality. John feels this guilt, as he recognizes and takes responsibility for the sin he commits, against his wife. Additionally, due to John’s guilty conscience, he also realizes the value and tenderness that his wife brings him.
It is revealed that as soon as he had an affair with Abigail, he confessed to Elizabeth the next day because of the guilt he was carrying around. Also in Act 4, he was highly conflicted over whether or not to confess to working with the devil to escape death. In the end, he decided lying was a sin he did not want to commit and chose to die a honest man rather than survive as a deceptive man. So in the end it is clear to see that John Proctor still is a good man despite his short-lived affair with Abigail. He was an honest, good-hearted man who wished for nothing more than to live a good life with his wife and children.

Farquhar inability to recognize the difference between a federal spy and a confederate soldier leads him to the decision that results in his untimely death.

In the book A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving, my favorite character is Owen Meany. I admire the way he cares about his friends and is willing to do anything for them. He is concerned about John coming to Vietnam, so he cuts off his finger in order to prevent him from going into the war. This would be a very hard thing to do, but he cares a lot about John and wants to protect him. Another thing I enjoy is Owen’s jokes and humor.
Although Humanity struggles with their own religious faith, The Walking Dead takes it to a whole new level when the characters are put in an apocalyptic world where it is Vidal to have faith in order to survive. The Walking Dead uses biblical allusions and symbols to emphasize humanity’s need for faith in general, and to demonstrate that survival depends on that faith. Hershel Greene is the ideal Christian who does not question God’s existence. He believes strongly in what he considers to be right and is known to be uncompromising in defense of his morals. Through this post- apocalyptic world, he puts his Christian faith first in order to survive.

Because once we accept Jesus in our lives as our Lord and Saviour we try and imitate Him. He is our friend and companion for life but when we sin, sin separates us from him. This does not mean that we do not qualify for eternal life but we do not want to live a life without Jesus by our side. People who are friends with each other do not do opposite things but try and copy from each other. We need to copy how Jesus lived; He was pushed many times by wrong teachers and Pharisees but His self-control was just amazing.
Similarly, the story of to kill a mockingbird, through a characteristic of coming of age story. Jem have figured out that a killing of innocents such as Tom Robinson, was something that was against ethics.“Doesn’t make it right,” said Jem stolidly. He beat his fist softly on his knee. “You just can’t convict a man on evidence like that—you can’t” (Orwell 224). Making an objection, by going against social taboos which is ethically disagreeing, generate power that, consequently makes Jem more
He accept the idea that Jesus died for “our sins”. Salvation according to many Christians is only practical through Jesus Christ and his death on the cross is the absolute sacrifice that will make up for the sins of the humanity. Therefore we can say that his death has been presented and classified as a "parole", which really gives us an idea that people 's sin has been forgiven. Because of
I believe that he died on the cross to save us from our sins. I believe that Jesus did have human feelings and did ask the Lord to help and take away the pain. Jesus asked to not go to the cross and if there was another way. I believe that he faced all the pain for us. Jesus knew the next step and what it would bring, yet he did it and followed through with it for the love of us, the sinful people, that made him have to suffer for all the sinners the first place, the ones whose love held him to the cross and whose sins nailed him to it, yet he didn 't take shortcuts that could have freed him of the cross he drank from the cup so that he would follow his father and save
Should justice overrule mercy? Romans 12:19 answers these questions succinctly: “Dearly beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.’” God will deal justly with wrongdoers, and has instituted legal systems around the world to achieve this justice on earth. When Travis Alexander’s family left the vengeance to the court, they obeyed God’s command, and He repaid Jodi Arias for her sins through the legal system’s decision. God also displayed His mercy, however, through the various mistrials and legal complications that resulted in the death penalty decision being
