For example, she mentions how “the Lord renewed my strength” (234) and “dealt mercifully” with her many times, and that she “fared better” than her captors (235). Rowlandson explains how God gave her the “strength” to persevere through her struggles, and that God treated her “better” than her captors because she believed in him. She uses diction such as “renewed”, “strength”,
She symbolizes evil in the sense that she is born through sin and therefore she represents the punishment that God inflicts on Hester's adulterous act. Pearl also symbolizes the guilt that her parents are experiencing. She defies the puritans' law by being cheerful when she is associating with nature instead of suffering. Another way in which pearl symbolizes punishment is the fact that she keeps pestering and bothering her mother. “‘Hold thy peace, dear little Pearl!’ whispered her mother.

Now since everyone can agree that everyone has sinned except for Christ. Then it is easy to see that the majority of people need to understand what sin is and how to be prepared to manage it. This book by CS Lewis, equips someone with the tools they need to recognize Satan's deceptions for these three following reasons: Wormwood used the man's feelings towards his mother to harden his heart against her, Wormwood tries to tempt the Christian with the sin of pride, and finally Wormwood attempts to cause the man to fall in his purity Firstly, Wormwood used the
An example of their viewpoint in the film War Room is when Miss Clara is saying what God is and what a good Christian is, using her example of lukewarm coffee being distasteful to God too. This concept puts meaning behind Miss Clara and Elizabeth’s faith to be on fire for their Lord, as described by symbolic interactionists. Ritual is another term that comes back up in a symbolic interactionists viewpoint as well. War room in and of itself is about a ritual. Elizabeth was fighting herself and her husband, tearing herself and their marriage apart, because she wasn’t fighting the root of the problem: sin.
Go to our Heavenly Father and apologise and ask Him self-control. When we sin we become miserable any way, have you noticed? When we do not do the will of God we tend to lose focus which makes us miserable. It happens a lot to me when I sin, I feel miserable so do not worry if you fall into sin as long as it makes you miserable the Holy Spirit is always there to uplift us and we will eventually conquer sin as Jesus did but we also have to practice self-control in order to
Modeled by Thee Scarlet Letter’s Dimmesdale and The Crucible’s John Proctor, this is encouraged by their own self-judgment as well as the judgement of those around them. . Dimmesdale’s morality and disdain for his own hypocrisy causes him to castigate himself, physically and emotionally, due to his own moral fiber and the emotional torture Chillingsworth conducts on him. He realizes how dishonest he has been towards his congregation, and proclaims that he should’ve “long ago have thrown off [his] garments of mock holiness”, and shown himself to the people as God will see him (Hawthorne 134). John Proctor experiences a similar personal realization.
The Book of Eli demonstrates how strong faith is to certain people and explains that it takes away all the hardships as long as a person can believe or for some it can drive them to be powerful.

In Romans 8:28 it said, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” In Isaiah 41:10 it said “fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” I could feel God’s voice-- soft and pleasant. It seemed like God was soothing me with His words. God surely solved my life
The Lord is the source of love and loves unconditionally even giving his only son so that all may have eternal life. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3.16). God loves the world so much that he gave his only son as a sacrifice to atone for our sins. God is a loving god who is full of mercy, not a cruel god that wants to see the world

“The devil is waiting for them, hell is gaping for them, the flames gather and flash about them, and would fain lay hold on them, and swallow them up.” (Edwards) The differences in the Bradstreet’s poem, God was taking the house to help her move on with her life. “It was His own, it was not mine, far be it that I should repine; he might of all justly bereft.” (Bradstreet) Even though everything she own was gone, she still has god by her side and blest his name. The feelings in both of the stories are very depressing and frightening. In Bradstreet’s, when you’re reading it, it sounds like the main person was very scared and didn’t know what was happening. After running out she blest god for saving her.
Finally, the last characteristic Simon possesses is that he is devotedly faithful. He is an enormous believer of God and loves sharing his faith with other people. This is proven during various conversations with Reverend Russell and his best friend, Joe Wenteworth. When Simon is talking to the reverend, he suggests that God made him the way he is for a reason and says, “I think I 'm God 's instrument - that he 's gonna use me to carry out his plan.” Despite the reverend not agreeing to this statement, Simon still has faith he is.
