In To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, Jem believe Maycomb is Unjust because The Maycomb he used to know is not like what it is now, Which is shown when the prejudice members of his community are against Tom, Lula refusing to let Jem & Scout enter their church, and When he was punished for destroying Mrs. Dubose’s flowers. To Start Off, Scout was explaining on how the final verdict of the jury & judge affected Jem & loss faith in the citizens of Maycomb. Scout says, “I shut my eyes. Judge Taylor was polling the jury: “Guilty...guilty...guilty...guilty…” I peeked at Jem: his hands were white from gripping the balcony rail, and his shoulders jerked as if each “guilty” was a separate stab between them” (282). Maycomb is an injustice town because as every time the Jury said “guilty” it negatively affected Jem like he was being stab inside which illustrates how he was very confident in knowing that Tom will be acquitted & be found innocent but, after the verdict it had made realizes & lose hope on the members of his community.
Again, the theme of appearance vs. reality is distinguished when the squire humiliates Parson Adams because of his poor appearance and he plans to rape Fanny. Fielding criticizes the wicked world of the upper class society where people can be cruel, harsh, and immoral because they have got money; they are given the right to behave as they please. The squire lacks the charitable nature as he is unsympathetic towards he guests and he did not show hospitality or friendliness. These are examples of people who lack " the milk of brotherly

Is religious faith normal, natural, or desirable? Does it serve an important function in the life of man, or is it, rather, an aggregation of pernicious superstitions, designed to soothe timid souls and blind man to truth by retarding his development? A thousand treatises, setting sail on oceans of ink, have been penned in response to these questions. I personally have argued that religious faith is a necessary part of civilization, and an indispensable tool in the cultivation and taming of the wild individual ego. This view, however, is not shared by all.
He describes Gods anger towards those who do not follow and believe in Him. It is explained that God is the only one who is able to save people from going to Hell. Edwards wants people to imagine how evil and distressed life would be without Gods love and mercy. He explains that to not burn in Hell people need to ask for forgiveness from God, experience Gods mercy, and continuously practice the Lords word. Edwards really lets the message of “Gods wrath” sink into our minds to show how mighty, powerful, and capable the Lord is.
Once apprenticed to Joe Pip’s snobbery is frightful. Pip is ashamed of being a blacksmith and lives with the constant worry that Estella will one day “[he] being at [his] grimiest and commonest, should lift up [his] eyes and see Estella looking into the windows of the forge” (Dickens 108). The snobby Pips is ashamed of being a blacksmith because it affirms his low class status and limits his great expectations. In his statement “it is the most miserable thing to feel ashamed of home, the word “miserable “suggests that Pip
The Creature begins with killing the people that are most dear to Victor. Satan does the same thing in a similar way by bringing death to God’s own children. Lucifer causes trouble and even mortality to Adam and Eve’s perfect life. Once he introduces sin to them, all of God’s children thereafter are doomed. It is from these actions, that it is easily said that the Monster and Satan are damned for eternity.
The Priest himself, however, vehemently denies his status as a potential martyr: ‘There are good priests and bad priests. It is just that I am a bad priest’. As T S Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral emphasizes, one must do the right thing for the right reason. To lay down one’s life with the deliberate purpose of attaining sainthood or martyrdom would tantamount to expression of pride. The more the Priest rebuffs himself for his foibles, the more he shows the quality of humility.
But he has no choice but to let Justine take the fall for the death of his brother because he fears being seen as a madman. Later when Victor is told by his monster that he would leave to South America if Victor makes a second creation, he agrees until he selfishly destroys the second creation. “You have destroyed the work which you began...Do you dare to break your promise?” (181). Victor knew the consequences. He failed his parental duty to take care of his child and his needs and as a result he got Elizabeth killed.
Through a series of prophecies, Oedipus learns that he himself killed the king, who is his father, and married his mother, the queen. This drives him to become a blind beggar when his wife/mother commits suicide. Throughout the play, one can see that Oedipus’s fate was determined by forces outside his control, as seen by his lack of agency over the events leading to his eventual fate. The intractable gods’ manipulation in Oedipus’s fate is clearly shown by the various prophecies delivered by various oracles and prophets in the play. The first word of god in Oedipus the King commands the citizens of the plague-infested city to “drive out, and not to leave uncured within this country, a pollution we have nourished in our land” (96-98).
