The ten Booms went through some hard times throughout their life, but unlike most people, they kept their faith in God. The ten Booms were able to spread the gospel in concentration camps to many people. If the ten Booms had not gotten caught and if they had not been sent to concentration camp, many people would have died without knowing who God was. The ten-Boom family made some very difficult decisions through World War ll, but with their faith, they were
This is where—hanging here from this gallows …’” (65). This quote shows how Elie believed that the Nazis had killed his god, and how that god was no longer there to help him. In Inherit the Wind, the defending attorney, Henry Drummond, believed that the presence of religion in the town was moving the town backwards and not progressing with the times. This was most evident when Bertram Cates attempted to teach the theory of evolution in his classroom and was arrested for it. Cates and Drummond attempt the impossible: going against the word of God, and, consequently, everyone in the town of Hillsboro.
Danforth stated, “You misunderstand, sir; I cannot pardon these when twelve have already been hanged for the same crime.”(Miller 1156). After he hung twelve people, Danforth thinks that we shouldn’t stop because if they were to stop it, that would say that they were wrong in their judgement.Courageously, they kept it going, thinking that they were right and everyone who opposed them or the girls, were working with the devil. Worried that Hale was wrong, he left and came back, trying to get people to just give in, that living and lying is better than dying. So furthermore, Hale and people of the church has been somehow
He was then tricked by ivy when she “proceeding” to fall into the hole but she quickly moved out of the way for him to fall instead and died. The third and last reason why Noah had played such a role that had madness is when he had skinned the animals. The animal should be killed by one of the elders but he would skinned them for fun and leaves them out on the in obvious places such as outside the school and on corn field. He had also killed and skinned the pig and hung them on the porches of the villagers when the wedding of ivy’s big sister kitty was interrupted by a couple of boys who were scared. The boys had seen the creature hanging the pigs on the
“He had left his little Bible at the bottom of his coat pocket, and his big Bible on the desk buried under the mortgage he was about to foreclose: never was a sinner taken more unawares” (Irving, 1824, p. 9). There was no use; he was unable to change what would become of him, he and all of his fortune were obliterated and never seen again. “The Devil and Daniel Webster” shows more of a saving grace than complete religion. "The defense rests," said Dan 'l Webster, and stood there like a mountain” (Benet, 1936, p. 20) "The jury has considered its verdict," he said and looked the stranger full in the eye. "We find for the defendant, Jabez Stone.
Hale went to the houses of those accused because he was starting to worry that they were actually innocent. He acknowledges, “No man may longer doubt the powers of the dark are gathered in monstrous attack upon this village. There is too much evidence now to deny it” (II.469-473.). Hale tells John and Elizabeth how the accusations are attacking the village, and how there is more evidence making it more difficult to not believe Abigail’s lie. Hale is worried that innocent people are being accused, but he also feels obligated to agree with the court.
She'd died long before I came to work for him as a governess. That was never Bertha, in the attic” ( “The mirror” a short story). All this time Rochester kept Jane from ever knowing that he was a married man and that the only reason behind his wealth was because of his crazy wife. The secret became destructive on Rochesters part because he was leading on Jane with his words and his moves of being a handsome, loyal, honest, all around great man who in reality turned out to he lying to her face over time. Rochester in the novel sugar coated many of the things that Jane would hear or that she would be dream about.
In a panic, Mary hysterically turned on Hale, probably for the sole reason that he was the first person she saw when anxiety clouded and took over her thought process. “You are the Devil’s man! He come at me by night and every day to sign.” The only reason she had started to go after Proctor was to save herself from Abigail, who was acting like Mary was possessing her by mocking everything she said. The only reason Abigail did this was because she was scared, as well. Abigail’s secret of faking being bewitched in court was finally about to come out.
