Regardless of age, gender, and race, everyone encounters different problems in his or her daily life. Whether the problems are as simple as getting up in the morning or untangling the headphones, people need to find a solution to solve them. The only thing that matters is what solutions they will seek. In David Foster Wallace’s “Good People,” he narrates a story about two college students, Lane Dean, Jr. and Sheri Fisher, who face a dilemma of choosing between either abortion or keeping their baby. They are torn between these choices because they come from a religious family, in which abortion is illegal and they will become immoral if they decide to have an abortion.
By using this point of view to portray how helpless the main character, Lane Dean, feels, readers will learn that entering an early parenthood is not always a good option for those who are young and unprepared because many problems and questions will arise. In Lane’s scenario, he does not know if he wants to keep the baby at first. Yet, his problems evolve to doubts as he begins to question his goodness, his love for Sheri and his faith in God. Therefore, the important message that readers can receive from “Good People” is the standards of becoming “a good person” are unknown because everyone has distinct views on what is right or
As opposed to the Grandmothers constant change of morals to favor certain situations, the Misfit has morals that are set in stone and adhere to his past, present and future. As the two characters converse, religion sparks an interest in the Misfit because it is something he is interested in understanding but knowing it must not be true. He believes that he must see it with his own eyes to prove the existence. His concept of reality also relates himself to Jesus, so much so as to believe he is a realistic representation of Him. He goes on to tell that the only difference is between the crimes committed and the proof held against him.

“A Christmas Carol” written by Charles Dickens isn’t necessarily a christian book per say, but it does have many Christian accepted themes and lessons. Charles Dickens writes about many explicit and implicit themes that are taught in everyday life as a Christian. Such as how someone can change their life around from ruined and sinful to bright and hopeful through accepting their failures and seeking forgiveness. Or maybe how Scrooge realizes that what he really needs to do rather than worry about his business is to love those around him. One last Christian aspect elaborated on in the book is how society needs to care for the common welfare rather than their own selfish wants.
Freeman Bailey Freeman Hensley English 11/ Fourth Period 05 March 2018 Part 14: Rough Draft #2 In Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man is Hard to Find” she writes, “If you would pray,’ the old lady said, ‘Jesus would help you.’ This particular quote shows how Flannery O’Connor combined two themes into one concept, by taking the theme of God and Religion and Good vs. Evil and adding that into one character’s personality. O’Connor also shows, in this quote, the theme Good vs. Evil for how the grandmother attempted to convert the misfit to her religion instead of going through with his evil scheme. O’Connor’s writing style was very unique and one of a kind.
In my view, I think that the most complicated question that the teenager might face is “Do I really want to be Muslim/Christian/Jewish?! Etc..”, finding yourself belonging to a specific group or religion since the day you were born is kind of scary, you find yourself belonging to things you didn’t choose, so when a person becomes a teenager he/she would start to have doubts over whether they accept their parents decisions about their lives and be satisfied with it or they would start to take different decisions by their own? !, to discuss that I’ve chosen the song “You came to me’’ by Sami Yousuf. “You came to me in that hour of need when I was so lost, so
For Christians, it is the product of a life of prayer and of a willingness to act in accordance with a biblical view of life. We seek to practice what we preach and hold each other accountable for the way we live out our lives. • Positive choice making ref lects the good values you hold that guide your daily life. These are values like a belief in God, a commitment to be a loving and caring person, the expression of honesty and trustworthiness, the importance of being a moral person with a spiritual focus, a desire to be a good marriage partner, and being a responsible member of your extended family.

Taking into account the Christian belief and its teachings, a person could decide to become confident and remain calm in times of stress and anxiety, trusting that God will help them. In a way, is it possible for couples who create the triangle (husband-wife-God) to have also a higher level of differentiation or is it the actually a lower one?
Everyone who truly commits himself to the gospel finds his life expanding and his appreciation growing for all good things. His acknowledgment of God and his wondrous creations intensifies...Brothers and sisters, a committed person makes goodness look attractive. He builds an inner confidence as he learns light and truth and then practices it”(Elder James M. Paramore, A Personal Commitment). I plan to apply integrity but being truthful in all I do. No more justifying my wrongs or others, just being honest with myself and others but with the love of the Lord.
