Not everything in this life is fair and equitable. Job’s three friends, however, were certain that God was punishing Job for some secret sin, something Job could hide from everyone but God. Job vehemently denied that such was the case, and he was right. God later verified this also. However, during his ordeal of loss and suffering, Job gradually came to resent God.
We need to copy how Jesus lived; He was pushed many times by wrong teachers and Pharisees but His self-control was just amazing. He knew just what to say to who; He was such amazing leader; and walked with confidence and never allowed the devil to take away what He had. Bust us? Well, we can never live without sin this is how Paul said but what we can do is when we fall into sin we have to be quick in getting things right. Go to our Heavenly Father and apologise and ask Him self-control.
Owen’s use of the allusion is powerful because it directly rejects a commonly accepted notion and argues that his country’s future generations should not follow it, or be misled into following it. This lie is what caused him to lose his life. Owen does not want others to fall for the lie and experience the horrors he describes in the
The congregation even went to the extent of describing the sermons as, “...a freshness, and fragrance, and dewy purity of thought, which, as many people said, affected them like the speech of an angel”(Hawthorne 62). As time within the book passed on, the congregation continued to develop a stronger connection with God and their Puritan beliefs due to Dimmesdale’s eloquent, yet hypocritical, sermons, but, at the same time, Dimmesdale began to realize the significance of his sins as he continued to lie to
His unwillingness to confess to witchcraft, is because of his personal beliefs regarding reputation. From this I can infer that John Proctors reputation in society was important to him than being hung for a crime he did not commit. The theme
Everyone knows that smuggling things into the prison was wrong and it was against the rules, but some believe that the ends justified the means, therefore it was acceptable. Colson may have had good intentions, but he should not have smuggled dye into the prison because it effected his peers, his God, and his family. The first reason Colson should not have participated in smuggling dye into the prison is that his actions effected his peers. Everyone around him was affected. His Christian friends were dismayed to hear that Colson had made the deliberate delinquent decision to smuggle the dye.
These themes can be seen throughout the story as Mr. Hooper, the main character as a Reverend, punishes himself over a sin that is never revealed. He punishes himself to the utmost ability by blocking himself from the rest of the world, which in turn causes him to lose his social status and soon become a dark and mysterious man. Although society often frowns upon unexplained or uncommon beliefs, one should still be bound to them even if there are those who greatly oppose it, like Reverend Hooper had done in “The Minister’s Black Veil”. Even though Mr. Hooper is in a healthy relationship with his wife, he says, “Know, then this veil is a type and a symbol, and I am bound to wear it ever, both in light and darkness, in solitude and before the gaze of multitudes, and as with strangers, so with my familiar friends. No mortal eye will see it withdrawn.
Why are light and dark references so prominent in The Scarlet Letter? Many quotes from the book allude to a light or dark reference for the main characters. The light and dark we see in each character is critical to the book because the references show how they are developing. This is an important theme because the light and dark references are noticeable in our own lives, and change how we live day to day as well. Light and dark imagery, alluding to the larger conflict between good and evil, is present throughout the novel in the characters of Roger Chillingworth, Pearl and Hester Prynne.
He has kept it a secret as he states, “It 's for Cosette this must be faced. If [I am]caught she is disgraced” (ValJean’s Confession). He hides his true identity to protect Cosette, so that he doesn’t cause her any pain or bring her shame. He does this so that Cosette’s love for him will not diminish; she is sheltered from the sin and darkness in the world that could easily corrupt her. If she were not protected, her
He believed that the people of earth were not taking heed of God’s word and that they were indulging in the seven deadly sins. Despite the fact that he is a loner who does not have much to his name, he does not seem to fit the profile of someone who is motivated by strain theory. Doe does not have tangible motives, and he has the means to achieve the motives that he does have. This means that he is not committing his crimes due to feeling strained by society, but that he’s doing it because it’s his goal. Comparatively, I believe Doe’s killings would relate more the rational choice theory.
