A long time ago when the ground starts to shake, the ocean ate up the coasts, and a dusty vortex sucks up cows, it meant the gods are mad. The ancient Greeks had a way of explaining the cause of many known natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, etc. Whenever a natural disaster occurs someone somewhere did something to get the gods mad even though no one knew the real cause is the ancient Greek's mentality. Coming back into reality, science says otherwise. We can make conclusions about the cause, effect, and origin of any natural disaster before it happens due to an advancement in modern-day technology.
In 2004 in Indonesia a 9.0 earthquake hit and created a tsunami that killed about 250,00 people and the author Richard Lewis recreaded the story in the killing sea because he is interested in the mysterious ocean. First on page 48 the narrator said “for as far as Ruslan could see, meulaboh had become a lake, clogged with floating debris”. this is true because meulaboh was one of the first places that the tsunami hit so all the ocean water was there and went through many cities and destroyed pretty much everything there.throughout the book Ruslan finds dead bodies and so did many of the rebels, it said that on page 49 the narrator said”across the way, ruslan can see dozens of bodies crumpled on second floor stairs of the shopping mall.” because of the tsunami, about 250,000 people had died so there would be many dead bodies everywhere and inside of every building, but especially in the shopping mall because people like to go to the mall so there would be a lot of people there. Then on page 18 the narrator said”from up top came peter exited cry.”hey, the reefs are drying up! there 's fish flopping fish around!”” in meulaboh,before the tsunami hit the reef dried up and groups of people were just standing there looking at the reef and there actually was fish flopping around, but then the tsunami hit and killed all of the tourists that were just standing there.richard Lewis accurately represented the tragedy of the tsunami in Indonesia and added a few characters that made
“Beware of the Easter Bunny” by Charles Colson, “Letter from Birmingham Alabama” by Dr. Martin Luther King, and “Salvation” by Langston Hughes depict the ways human have the wrong definition of Christianity. People often expect from God and what He can do, but do not understand the true concept of Christianity. People often expect acts of God, but they themselves do not act or stand up. In “Salvation”, Langston recalls his aunt telling him how “when you are saved you [see] a light… and Jesus [comes] into your soul” (Hughes 345). Langston’s incorrect definition of Christianity ruined his experience and beliefs.
One could easily state, that dropping an atomic bomb twice killed more innocent lives that were needed to perish. Asking, what would it be like if it has Japan dropped the bomb on America and it was our family or people we knew that were killed; what they fail to realize is that Japan did bomb us. Pearl Harbor, remember that? Killing 2,403 American personnel, including 68 civilians. Those Americans did have family and people they cared about, but did Japan hesitate?
On July 8, 1741 Jonathan Edwards delivered the sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” During this time many people were moving away from their Puritan beliefs and did not make God a priority. In the message he talked about how everyone was a sinner and how everyone belongs in hell. He also talked about how if God wanted to He would throw everyone in Hell, but since He gave us His Son we should take Him and repent. While delivering this message many people began to repent and ask for forgiveness. Sometimes it is easy to take the gift of salvation for granite, which is why we should review how and why it was given to us.
God’s anger will keep building up until he could no longer tolerate it. Edwards saw God’s power as something the world would not be capable of handling. Edwards used God’s power as a threat of destruction. Jonathan Edwards concluded his sermon by revealing his attitude of a merciful God through an allusion. “The wrath of Almighty God is now undoubtedly hanging over a great part of this congregation; let everyone fly out of Sodom.
That is freedom. This is nothing else.” (Rand, 101) All along he knew his happiness came from being alone, yet it wasn’t till now he realized the great burden of constantly serving others. His great epiphany derived the question, “What is my life, if I am but to bow, to agree and obey?” (Rand, 97) At this point he realizes his curse of exising as inquisive is actually his “greatest virtue.” (Rand) The thought of existing for others becomes repelling and Equality instead makes his goal to fight for the freedom on man and for the welfare that comes from
He uses a fitting example of Ben firing his brother, Doug, for forcing his religion upon others in the work place. Ben justifies his reasoning by stating, “legal says it falls under the category of bigotry, and if we just stand by and let you inflict your bigotry on our employees, Getz can be liable.” (33) Although his actions are immoral to most none believers, many Christians believe Doug did the best thing.
Praying used to be a central part of his life, but the camps have made him dubious of God’s power. Time goes on and the Jewish year nears its end, yet the situation does not improve. At a solemn service, Eliezer continues to question why he should bless God. He admits that “every fiber in [him] rebelled,” (67). He allows his bitterness to take control and blames God for all the destruction caused by the Nazis.
