some of us know, the Crusades is not something that we enjoy discussing, but they were a big part of religious history. The Crusades were what the pope called “holy wars or expeditions,” that knights or people of their religion went on to gain control over holy land. Each Crusade had a social, economic, and/or political goal and aimed for one land at a time. The pope even exclaimed that if you went on a Crusade that you were assured a place in heaven. These Crusades, or “holy wars”, were driven by religious faith within varieties of religion like Muslims and Christians.
This conviction was regularly framed in religious terms; many white Christians contended that lone by surrendering their profound customs and tolerating Christian authoritative opinion could the Indians be "spared" from the flames of hellfire. The constrained digestion of Native Americans was in this manner defended as being better for the Indians themselves. Numerous Native Americans, be that as it may, declined to acknowledge what the administration was giving them. They would not surrender their otherworldly convictions. They declined to figure out how to ranch, and they wanted to end up "socialized."
More specifically, my reason were as follows: their treatment of many people in the regions that they conquered, destruction of property, and caused much devastation across the lands. Upon conquering those in foreign lands, the Mongols treated the people without dignity or respect of any kind. It seemed that they had a disregard for human life with the people were alien to them and discriminated against them whilst in the peoples’ native land. Once conquered the peoples’ lifestyles were ripped from them, even including the elites. The Mongols exploited everyone, even women and children, for their own advantage, often using forced labor.
Edwards shows an unhealthy demand to get his audience to do as he aforementioned. Exceedingly astute, Edwards conveyed his sermon in the atmosphere he knew it would have a tremendous impact. Jonathan manifest his sermon appealing to create fear and guilt on those who heard it expecting would do as he disclosed, be born again. Without any validation, Jonathan claimed the hate God had for humans who had not been born again. He testified that God’s anger is greater on those who are standing on earth, over the ones being tormented in hell, compelling his audience with fear.
Both Douglass and Walker maintained that the nation had failed to live up to the ideals of the Declaration of Independence but their reasoning was diverse. Walker believed that the author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, was a racist. He encouraged blacks to violently resist their masters and he wrote that blacks when faced with possibly enslavement should “kill or be killed” (Levine B: 792). Walker despised whites, categorizing them as “unjust, jealous unmerciful, avaricious and blood thirsty set of beings, always seeking after power and authority” Walker B:
As human have been advancing in sophistication Grendel has grown to hate the human for what he see them as, barbarians who only know how to destroy, such as the nature around them, which is observed by Grendel as he continues to watch the growth of humanity when he says, “They hacked down trees...and blistered the land….They..., killed birds for sport, set accidental fires that would burn for days.... There was nothing to stop the advance of man” (40). This quote expresses the human condition for destruction for no cause, which is a cause for Grendel to grow in disdain of the them, so much so that he begins to act against the humans, slaughtering some in their mead halls and others on separate occurrence; however, while his actions seemed to damp the spirit of the lowly humans, Grendel ended with more disdain for the humans because of their unwavering belief in their religion. This is disdain is observable in Grendel’s observation on the recently terrorized humans as they commence their
Blasphemy is also punished here. Sodomites are also punished here, as it is considered that they were violent to Nature (against the nature of things, heteronormative behavior and tradition). Here, Dante see his friend Brunetto Latini, a Sodomite, whom he cries for. Circle 8 contains those who were fraudulent on earth. They are tortured and are stuck in another pit, this time a pit of darkness.
The institutions were responsible for the maintenance of traditional faith that made them defensive because of all the various scientific and philosophical challenges. Protestants were also compelled to respond to a modernizing world because they were taught to understand God. They had little in the way of doctrine to help them defend their faith. 12. What criteria do you think should be considered when deciding whether or not museums should return artifacts to their native countries/peoples?
So anything they do they do have to reflect what Jesus preached and did like choosing to live his life like the poor to emphasize how unhealthy and selfish it is to live like a king when there are so many people that don’t have anything. On the other hand, mainstream Christianity uses their religion as a way to make them feel more superior than everyone else that doesn’t believe in exactly what they believe in. They use this belief of superiority to justify the domination of others like Christopher Columbus did to the Native Americans when he came to their land. He thought they were savages just because they were different than him and didn’t believe in the same God as him. Mainstream Christianity supports this idea that they are the only ones that deserve privilege.
Furthermore, euthanasia intrudes upon God’s planned cycle of life and death. For Hindus, euthanasia infringes upon several fundamental ideas, like ahimsa, karma, and dharma. According to Christianity, life is a gift from God, created in his image, and imbued with the Holy Spirit. Therefore, euthanasia is an offense against God’s creation and the Holy Spirit. Christian scripture provides textual evidence in support of this perspective.
