In fact, the one and only thing most people could agree on was the notion that slavery was immoral and inhumane. Despite the intricate positions on abolition, the Second Great Awakening influenced many leaders and developed new principles that radiated throughout the country. Christianity was the one unifying factor that most Americans could identify with at the time. The Enlightenment Era challenged old ideas of divine authority and stimulated a more progressive church aiming for equality. With leaders in the church declaring that slavery was a sin, and promoting the idea of a forgiving God, many northerners began to reach out and spread the word of God and secure their eternal salvation.
While the language barrier was down, he continued to search for a way to speak authoritatively within the “white” culture. Equiano finds solace in religion, as is pushed to God in two distinct instances. After hearing George Whitefield speak in Philadelphia about the Methodists, he was attracted to their emphasis on suffering and personal liberty. Equiano ultimately turns to religion as a unifying language between him and the Europeans. The second instance was on an Arctic voyage led by John Phipps that almost cost Equiano his life.
And it is very obvious from Jesus’ life that God cares deeply for his people. It is evident in the Gospels how Jesus was moved with love and compassion for the lowly and the suffering. Matthew points out that, ‘He was moved with compassion for the crowds and healed their sick’ (Mt 14:14). And again, ‘He was moved with compassion because they were distressed and dejected like sheep without a shepherd’ (Mt 9:36). In the Gospel of Luke Jesus was moved when he met the widow of Nain on the way to bury her only son (Lk
The profession of law enforcement is synonymous with service. For Christians, the greatest example of service is in Jesus and his words and actions. Therefore, Christians in law enforcement must look towards Jesus and take strength from his example to fight against the immoral acts they encounter daily. Furthermore, a Christian called to work within the law enforcement profession can fulfill the Great Commission by positively impacting the outcasts, broken and deviants in society towards God’s Word. Despite law enforcement being a secular profession, Christians in law enforcement can exemplify Jesus’ standard of service which can be seen through examples such as Officer Tommy Norman and his style of community policing, intertwining love and duty.

Overall, Richard views Carnegie as “little capitalist who urged presidents to do right things in Philippines, Panama and international diplomacy [but] had never done the right or moral thing as a businessman,” (Ernsberger). Richard displays this by including Carnegies expenses such as “$10 million to found the Carnegie Endowment for Peace” furthermore demonstrating that Carnegie did not spend his money on the business. However, Harold explains that Carnegies investments on developing the community is his way of repaying the community for their contribution to his
When people started converting to Christianity the Africans realized that “none of them [were men] of title” (Achebe 119). The Igbo people put men of achievement on a societal pedestal and give them respect only because of their accomplishments, which also means that there are outcasts. The people that have not achieved much are looked down upon in society and are seen as subordinate. Another example of Christianity’s acceptance is how they “educated their converts” (Source C). In the novel, Christianity’s customs contrasts to the Igbo in that the Christians accept individuals as they are and not by what they have accomplished.
