Being very direct he describes, that telling a random stranger that God loves you is not biblical evangelism. Although, God loves them and the people should know that, they should also know the details. Paul provided a question for evangelist to ask instead, “Is the Holy Spirit so at work in your heart through the preaching of the gospel that a change has been wrought so that the sin you once loved you now hate and the sin you once desired to embrace?Do you want to go to heaven?” The idea to ask more direct questions rather than saying God loves you,say this prayer, now you will go to heaven is something that I can fully agree with. Paul put into perspective of how to talk to someone who is not a believer and provided
From there, the kids learn how to kill and then all of the violence starts to happen to those around them. Others argue that child soldiers are dangerous and without doubt should not be given amnesty, however, child soldiers should be given amnesty because they are forced to join through false promises and poverty, get brainwashed with drugs and alcohol, and are usually too young to understand what they are being involved in. One reason why they should be given amnesty is because they are brainwashed with drugs and alcohol causing them to commit atrocities. The use of drugs and alcohol on child soldiers are pretty common because they have the ability to brainwash
“The Perils of Obedience”, written by Stanley Milgram in 1973, explores how her experiment demonstrated people’s affinity to obey orders even if it means someone will get hurt. Milgram is a leading social psychologist who disproved previously considered notions about obedience and authority. Her work demonstrates how obedience trumps morality and gives support for this phenomena with examples from history. By using different participants’ reactions, the author is able to analyze the meaning behind the experiment. The author begins by describing obedience in relation to social life and how it is often framed in history and literature.
The book of Luke gives a clear explanation of Jesus’ misson by saying, “For the son of man came to seek and save the lost.” (Luke 19:9, ESV). This verse shows that Jesus came in order to save sinners; as a result of this, Jesus spent most of his time with those who had lost their way and needed to be brought back to the light. Accordingly, if Jesus were to come to earth today, he would not be visiting churches and people who are following his word, but he would be preaching to criminals and people who need him. The apostle Mark writes that, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mark 2:17, ESV).
Not all kind of violence is used to make someone’s life bad, it can also be used to protect someone you care about and you don’t want them to get hurt. In the movie “In A Better World”, Christian and Elias bombed Lars’ car because Lars was hitting Dr. Anton and the boys wanted revenge, so they bombed Lars’ car hoping that Lars’ would stop messing and hurting Dr. Anton. Another way that shows why violence is used to protect someone is that in the movie, When Elias was getting bullied by Sofus, Christian came and beaten Sofus with a metal stick. The reason why Christian did this was because on the first day of school, Elias was the first person to become friends with Christian and they looked out for each other. Another reason why violence is used to protect someone’s loved ones is that when Elias got hurt trying to protect Lars’ wife and daughter from the explosion Christian and Elias planted earlier.
Joint enterprise is growing problem in our modern society were teenagers are sentenced because they were present when the offender delivered the fatal blow. There have been arguments for and against joint enterprise and whether the law should stay or be abolished this is because too many young people are being condemned for just witnessing attacks or observing illegal activities. I do believe those who took part deserve to be punished too, just not as rigorously. Personally I believe that the offender who commits the crime should therefore be held accountable and should be punished for it. This leaves us wondering: are the wrong people going to jail?
These people often fill their articles with words intended to evoke a strong feeling of resentment towards child soldiers for their readers. For example, according to IRIN News in the article “Should Child Soldiers be Prosecuted for their Crimes?”, chooses words such as perpetrators, criminal and atrocities to describe child soldiers (Johannesburg). Their word choices connotate the seemingly violent lives of child soldiers. It is as if they are trying to imply that the actions carried out by child soldiers are done by their own accord, but they fail to realize that the children are under the influence of drugs, abuse, and their
And to be more obedient and mindful of our relationship with God and with one another as we continually care, feed and nurture each other, in the ways of Jesus’ life and ministry. The resurrection story is a story of victory over selfishness and pride, over cowardice and denial, over fear and doubt. 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.
This clearly shows that child soldiers are victims because they don’t have a choice to be a child soldier and kill people. Since they are trying to not disobey the leader so nothing bad will happen to them. I personally think that adults taking children out of their own house, taking them away from their own family members already makes them a victim. But when they are training and listening to their leader to make sure they are safe makes them an even more victim than they already
