Through her noble actions, she brought great respect to the church and demonstrated a great example of how the people should aspire to act. In contrast, the Parson did not put on any airs with his actions or in how he conducted himself. His philosophy on how to act was simply that a priest should be the example of the purity that he asks his flock to demonstrate (505-506). However, unlike the Prioress, he didn’t do this through courtly manner. He instead demonstrated mercy and kindness towards others, and wasn’t scornful, even to sinners (516).
The doctrine of sufficiency also means that no one should take away or add to scripture. In fact there is even a curse for doing so in Revelation 22:18-19. God has given us enough to point us to himself and to teach us how to have a right relationship with him. Scripture helps us hear God’s voice and live a life that is able to please him. The Bible’s sufficiency is why Martin Luther was able to cry out with confidence “sola Scriptura,” which mean “Scripture alone (53).” He understood the depths and riches of Scripture and how it had everything needed in order to know God and have salvation in
Tom Robinson did nothing wrong, and he needed a strong lawyer such as Atticus to prove that. Along with wanting people to see his true innocence, Tom also wanted to return to his family. Loving wife and children anxiously awaited at home, hoping, praying, and believing that Tom would come home. By himself, Tom could not reunite his family, he needed Atticus’s help. Not only did he not commit the wrongful act people accused him of, he never acted wrongfully or illegally.
No more shouting or insults, no more hateful feelings of any sort. Instead, be kind and tender-hearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ” (Ephesians 4:31-32). Reverend Brown was a very religious man who takes his job too seriously and extreme. Verses like Ephesians 4: 31-32, which insist that people be more forgiving, were not emphasised when the Reverend was preaching to the town. The townsfolk were very religious, so the Reverend easily persuaded them to believe that Drummond was an evil man, without any real knowledge about Drummond.
However, all of these works seem foreign to him and while constantly sifting through the works of others, he loses the true intention of his writing. This hopeless attempt at taking the heart of another is a great contrast with “Jordan (II)”, which focuses on a man giving his heart away. The speaker is only hoping to express his “heavenly joys” (1. 1) and to give his love to God whilst wishing for nothing in return. While Sidney’s work depicts a selfish love, this is a much more selfless love in comparison because the intention of the speaker is for the world to understand how deep his devotion is without expecting a reward for his efforts.
Nick is a narrator expertly tailored to match the story he tells, recounting a world in which everyone he has ever known trades truth and transparency for the shining ideals of cultured living and wealth. He is a dishonest man in a dishonest world. Although he is convinced of this own veracity, Nick’s actions and lack of action suggest something else. He is dishonest with those around him about what he knows and who he truly is. Throughout the book, he withholds pertinent information from the people in his life – most notably, he keeps his silence about Tom’s mistress.
In my religion Chukwu is a loving father and need not be feared by those who do his will” (Achebe 110). The ideas on how the people look up to their gods differ greatly. Christians believe that he is loving and merciful. The Igbo people believe that they should fear the gods. Although they both share the same basic concepts of their god, they differ in the idea of multiple gods and how they should feel about their primary
Jesus shares this parable in hopes of allowing people to know that it does not matter what your position may be, it is the one who stops who loves his neighbor well. He showed two characters in this parable that would have been very well respected in this day and age (priest and a Levite) and allowed them to be the people who passed the man and did nothing to help. He then chose a people that were not well liked nor respected, a Samaritan man to represent the person who stopped and helped the man who had been beaten. Taking into context the time period this would have been something that truly challenged people to pick the Samaritan as the one was being the neighbor and showing
He doesn 't waste any time and challenges Reverend Peters on his inquiries of religion, One thing about Christopher is he’s not to found of people who trust in thoughts that he knows coherently can 't be true or factual. The basic exploration of his contention is shockingly successful, in this moment of the book he sees a
to be spiritual is just simply total obedience to God, it’s not about the shouting or the silence you potrail before God it’s about your trust, your attitude of love toward God and toward men. Hebrews 12:14; “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Nahum 1:7; The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him Isaiah 59:1-2; Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid [his] face from you, that he will not hear. Mark 11:25; When you stand praying forgive, if you have aught against any: that your father also which is in Heaven may forgive you your trespasses. Before you speak out as you think about what you are about to say God heard you. Like God heard Hannah even when she didn’t speak out only her lips was
