The speech that was read by Chief Red Jacket to defend the religious beliefs of his people is a powerful piece of literature that is underrated. The speech describes the feelings that were caused by the religious intolerance from the Americans. Currently, the United States have started to appreciate the impacts of the Native Americans and other minorities in history. However, a piece of history that has been quite hidden is the religious intolerance of Native Americans. Chief Red Jacket utilizes repetition, pathos, and rhetorical questions to convince the Americans to tolerate the religion of the Native Americans.
Though Calvin agreed with Luther in some respects, they had their differences. But before comparing him to Luther, one must look at the foundational beliefs of Calvin’s teachings. His teachings are perhaps best summarized by debaters following his death. Calvin’s fundamental beliefs, as defined by these debaters, follow the acronym TULIP. First, Calvin argues that man is doomed with total depravity because of the original sin committed by Adam and Eve.
More specifically, from the biblical story, Eve’s humanlike curiosity brings her to receiving and consuming the apple from the tree of knowledge of good and evil from the Serpent, which was initially forbidden by god. By doing this she conducted the sin of disobedience or what is called the Original sin in Christianity, which led to their expulsion from Eden. There is a number of significant symbolic iconography hidden within this image. Firstly, a devious serpent in the garden often times depicted slithering around a tree represents Eve's temptation in the Garden of Eden. The tree, pomegranate of apple suggests the temptation of eve and the fall of man.
They go in great detail describing how the women was tricked by the devil to eat the fruit from the tree of death and how she made Adam eat the fruit. “She talked to him repeatedly and coaxed him the whole day toward the dismal at, that they should violate their Lord’s will.” Furthermore, they also describe women as having frail minds
Adam always assumes the position of power when important matters are concerned, and Eve devotedly defers to him” (MacPhee). MacPhee’s point is a valid one, as God did create woman from man’s rib and in the case of this epic poem, woman will never be equal to man. Eve from the very beginning is seemingly selfish compared to Adam, as she first speaks of herself, whereas Adam first speaks of God. Another way that Eve is portrayed as less than man is that it is mentioned how Eve will worship the God in Adam, but Adam worships only God and so he is above her. These subtle facts set up the reader for Eve causing the downfall of mankind.
In Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible we see a Christ-figure, John Proctor. Proctor reveals to us the he is Christ-like throughout the play. Christ was not one to judge others, but Lord knows he was. Elizabeth Proctor, his wife, has judged him “you will no longer judge me…” She judges Proctor because she found out that Proctor committed adultery. Christ was tempted many times like Proctor was by Abigail.
She states that “women ought to be learned, that they may stop their ears against seducers…Heresiarchs creep into houses, and lead silly women captive, they they lead their husbands, both their children; as the devil did with Eve, she her husband, their posterity” (Making, 427-428). Her point is that women have to be educated so that they can’t be tricked into sinning, as Eve was with the snake. However, ironically, it was Eve’s thirst for knowledge that caused her to sin in the first place. The tree she wasn’t supposed to eat from would give her the knowledge of good from evil, making her therefore more educated. Also, it’s clear she did know she wasn’t supposed to eat from the tree but still chose to act otherwise.
She makes her presence known and she explodes and responds with anger, “Thou, old Adam’s likeness, Set to dress this garden, how dare Thy harsh rude tongue sound this unpleasing news” (Bevington, 2014, 3.4. p. 356). Without a doubt, the Queen has made harsh reference to the gardener being the same as biblical Adam, whose disobedience to God caused both he and Eve to be removed from the Garden of Eden. The Queen continues her rath by blaming the gardener’s gossiping for this catastrophe and cursing his garden before running off to find her husband. Her comparison to the Garden of Eden is closely connected to Gaunt’s speech when he describes England’s current state as the second fall of mankind. In this case, the Queen suggests that her husband’s takedown is far worse than the first outcome of the Garden of Eden.
He feels as if he is entitled to the forbidden fruit, instead of obeying God, as well as going against the natural order of things, where he ate the fruit disrupting God’s creation. Nemesis was represent after he had eaten the fruit where his punishment would be greater than the actual crime. Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden; now Adam must work in order to get his food instead of picking from the land, and his children must do the same. These characteristics help to describe Adam as the perfect hero of the story. The difference between Adam and Satan in becoming the tragic hero is that Adam seeks redemption for the wrong that he has done.
She argued that what is going on inside the temple is not a prostitution, but it is a religious practice. She call herself as a “mystic mother”. She said that her religion use sexual healer to heal the body and soul of the people. The money that people give to the sexual healer is an alms that people will to give similar to what people give offering in the church. She tried to use the First Amendment, freedom of religion to protect herself.
Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God Analysis Religion has unquestionably shaped the structure of the United States from the founding of the first colonies on the eastern coast to modern political disputes. The roots of its grasp upon american society can be tied back to settlements in the east for the purpose of establishing strict religious communities. Although many continued to hold onto older religious beliefs as the colonies progressed, american colonies began to drift from the stern ideals which were held by the colony’s founders. In fear of allowing the colonies to become involved in “worldly matters”, movements such as the Great Awakening arose. In this campaign, many ministers sought to instill fear upon those they believed to be
Christians also believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity and born of the Virgin Mary. The Jews believe that Jesus Christ is and ordinary Jew, not the Messiah. Christian’s beliefs on sin is that we inherit through our common ancestor Adam, who rebelled against God. Christ was atoned for our sings through his death on the Cross (Romans 5:12-17). Jews on the other hand doesn’t believe in the original sin.
In the Salishan autobiography “Mourning Dove”, author Mourning Dove gives insight into how the culture of her people was ultimately altered during the late 1800’s; primarily caused by the catalyst that was the arrival and the integration of white values into their society. The main force that drove these transitions to occur stemmed from religion. Through the influence and encouragement of pastors, in this case, Father De Rouge, the Natives beliefs in their ancient customs gradually declined, as his determined efforts to spread the word of Christianity had reached the ears of the Native tribes (Mourning Dove, 26). Whether that be holding service in tipis or aiding the sick and needy. An example of this change regarding their beliefs could be
Catharine maintained her time by lecturing and writing books. Had she been a man, she would have joined her brothers in the clergy. However, she instead became an unofficial preacher to women about morals, self-sacrifice, modesty, and baby care in her works.

Catharine also helped establish other colleges in Burlington, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin.
