The main character Beowulf falls under a heroic character because he honors his country and using all his powers and strengths to protect others. His courageous has also shown him not to hesitate and to risk his life to fight those that are
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.

The power of resurrection is not offered to people who have accepted Jesus’ death, but have not accepted His new life. A certain writer, in his article said, “resurrection life is not just about having your sins forgiven. Our religion is not just sin management.
Only those who remained blameless and free of sin would reach God’s presence. Salvation in the Old Testament is viewed primarily as a means of going to heaven, which calls for obedience of Gods commandments to be worth before Him. Although this is similar to the New Testament, the New Testament mainly emphasizes on deliverance from sin through Jesus Christ, the son of God, who died to redeem his people from sin and its consequences. Salvation in the Old Testament was mainly based on faith in God (Kärkkäinen 63). For instance, God considered Abraham, who was faithful to him, as a man through whom he would raise a great generation that would please and obey Him.

Jonathan Edwards’ “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” was said very seriously and was taken seriously by the people who listened to the sermon. Edwards focused on a lot towards how sinners will be punished by God and will suffer an eternal punishment if they did not change their ways.

George Washington’s Rules of Civility were also serious and showed that people must show the qualities of honesty, respectfulness, and self discipline.
Not conforming to the modern events, and what society pressures us to believe. We cannot make Jesus into someone he is not, not making Jesus into a hippie, feminist, or superstar.

Following Jesus in America, where it is debated whether or not America is Christian or not, can be difficult based on the pressures of society, but also everyone will have their different beliefs/ways to follow
Through Lancelot’s relationship with God, White establishes a relationship that isn 't tangible, but still is at the center of Lancelot’s feelings and actions. Lancelot acknowledges his pride and realizes that it is God’s will that will guide him. After returning from the quest, Lancelot changes his life and doesn’t let his past pride and self-determination define his renewed self-image and the way he views the world around him. His new found attitude is acknowledged by many characters, especially Guenevere. She sees the new person he has become and comments, “I feel as if I were sacrificing you, or us if you like, to a new sort of love” (White 431).
Philippians 2:12-14 speaks about this spiritual co-operation between us and God, “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence, continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. Do everything without complaining or arguing.” I love this scripture as it gives each of us some clear principles for living in Christ. You work out your own salvation. As salvation is a work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and by obedience we work it out or live it out!
