Chief Red Jacket utilizes repetition, pathos, and rhetorical questions to convince the Americans to tolerate the religion of the Native Americans. The defense of Chief Red Jacket gave to his religion is a wonderful piece of history that does not get enough credit. Chief Red Jacket’s speech illuminates the thoughts of the Native Americans in that specific era. Today, the Native Americans and other minorities in the United States of America have been having more recognition. One of the actions that have been a little unpopular in US History is the religious
Summary: Green begins his chapter by outlining two of the main ways that he sees popular Atonement Theology spreading. The first is the popular “Penal Substitution” doctrine, and the other is a disregard for the doctrine of Atonement Theology altogether. He then begins to form an argument against “Penal Substitution” by attacking the concept of God as the subject of the cross and Jesus as the object, an image that, to Green, paints God as an abusive father. In the same line of thinking, he debates the literal take that most Christians adopt when it comes to the New Testament metaphors. He argues that we as Christians cannot found our entire Atonement Theology on these metaphors, as their descriptive capabilities can only go so far before they break down.
Hunter Estes Unit 2, Lesson 2 Gillespie’s Influence, a Legacy of Discrimination and Bigotry George Gillespie played a key role in the formation of the American Union’s fledgling government. Through his works, he convinced our Founding Fathers that civil government should be kept separate from the government of the church. By forcing this, he opened the door to arguments that shut religion out of politics and suppress the wishes of a large portion of our society. Today, we hold the “separation of church and state” to be one of the most important parts of our constitution, but we must confront the uncomfortable fact that, for much of American history, the phrase "separation of church and state" have often been expressions of exclusion, intolerance,
Martin Luther King Jr. and Antigone are very different people and they have quite similar aspirations. Antigone and Martin Luther King Jr. had ambitions of fighting injustice, and they tried to achieve them by standing up for what they believe in. Antigone uses more of her religious views to help her case, while Martin Luther King Jr. uses more logic and allusions to help his case. Antigone and Martin Luther King Jr. speeches use great words to help justify their beliefs; however, because of their different time periods, they use different types of references to help them obtain their goals. Martin Luther King Jr. uses references towards historical and political figures to show his stance on the United States Government during his time.
An indispensiable event in Christian history is Martin Luther King, Jr. enlightening society that there were civil laws that did not appropriately reflect the laws of equality, which were consistently addressed throughout the Christian Bible; therefore, if there was such as abundance of followers of Christianity, during that time, then the dominate class [upper and middle class, Caucasians] were typically not living by the word of God considering the fact that they were denying natural human rights as well as promoting hatred toward someone of different background. One major event that calls into question the entire faith, whether or not it did in fact happen, is Jesus’s resurrection in consideration that he was persecuted by the Roman soldiers,
Our speaker is asking, “What is the point of praying to a white Lord Jesus for a black young lover?” Upon reading, I sense a bit of anger and desperation that’s associated with her questioning of her Lord, with relation to the black community’s significance in southern culture. If white people who pray to a white Lord can commit such heinous crimes against black folks who also pray to the same Lord, what is the use of prayer? This line is one of the most apparent images in justifying that the speaker is more of a universal figure, talking about the black community that has been oppressed through the racist actions of their white counterparts. As seen
The author 's essay shows how the patriarchal society, were Christian symbols are used for dominating people into belief by fear. It was a kind of slavery. This essay has indications of the feminist, conflict, and symbolic interaction theories. She recognizes that women in the bible or in the eyes of the male dominated church have always been less than second-class, like how women should be veiled because she is only the reflection of "man", but men are considered the "image and reflection"
He explains that change can seem overwhelming and even threatening at times, which is why he wants Christians to have deep roots and dive in deeper into the grace of the gospel. Piper’s thesis is to show that the bloodlines of race do not matter when compared to the deep bloodline of Christ (227). He points out a pivotal problem that humans are alienated from God, and in doing so, are alienated from each other (227). A key way of looking at this is remembering that when people fail to love God, they fail to love others which causes disharmony, pride, and
From reading the textbook, it can be surmised that the “Black Sacred Cosmos” is the African-American religious worldview and its spiritual rebirth to Christianity as shaped by its heritage through slavery, emancipation, segregation, and other social injustices used to withhold societal and religious freedom from African-Americans in America, in which the whole universe/cosmos is viewed as sacred. The ultimate goal in this, as it related to the church, was the personal conversion of those who were not “saved,” to coming to know God and accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In this worldview African American Christians Afro-centrically define nuances and emphasis of their theological views. 2. Name and explain the social model presented in Chapter 1.
Mennonites are inclined to do what others tell them as a result of their religion while blacks must do what they are told forcefully or there are severe consequences they face at the time the story takes place. One can infer that the objective of the story at the end was to show that racism is and forever will be existent. Though this can be disputed it is shown through the main character at the end as she states, “and suddenly knew there was something mean in the world I could not stop” (Packer, 28). Vague as it is, the most probable conviction the “mean” concept in the world that could not be stopped is racism. As long as diversity exists, and multiple people of different backgrounds inhabit one space, the discrimination of another will eventually ensue as it is something all human beings inherently have in their heart be it intentional or otherwise, no matter how strongly they believe against it.
