A very similar thing happens in To Kill a Mockingbird, when Bob Ewell accuses Tom Robinson of raping his daughter Mayella, but Atticus proves that it was most likely Bob who did it. Bob Ewell, Mayella’s dad, the person who should be protecting her at all costs. The most common injustice in the novel appears when the kids find the case between Tom Robinson and the Ewell family to be unfair, highly illogical, and racist.

Thirdly, he tries to normalize the operation to make her feel like it’s a common thing, no big deal, he tells her she doesn’t “have to be afraid. [he’s] known lots of people that have it done”(53).

Manipulation is unfortunately a common theme in relationships and this short story does an incredible job by shining light on that issue in human relationships.
Claim #2: Molly Morden is left with no other options but to resist because the invaders treat her husband malevolently. Support #2, 1: After the event in which Captain Bentick is killed by Alexander Morden, Colonel Lanser and Mayor Orden are conversing about the purpose of punishment and what punishment will do. In the midst of their conversation, Colonel Lanser reveals to Mayor Orden, “You know as well as I that punishment is largely for the purpose of deterring the potential criminal.

Just as God inspired the Scriptures to teach doctrine, so God inspired leaders throughout the history of the church to introduce additional doctrines and practices. The collective writings of the early church “fathers,” the decisions of the ecumenical councils, and the decisions of the popes constitute this authoritative church tradition. The council included as part of the Bible the Apocrypha, books from the inter-testamental period that the Jews and the Protestants excluded. The Council of Trent officially pronounced eleven books of the Apocrypha to be Scripture. The result is that the Roman Catholic Bible today includes in the Old Testament seven extra books and four additions to existing books.

2. The Concept of Suffering in the Sacred Scripture Pope John Paul II says that “Sacred Scripture is a great book about suffering.” In the Scripture we see different kinds of sufferings which exist even in today’s world. What was the idea about suffering expressed in the Scripture? The most predominant understanding for suffering in the Old Testament, as well as in some part of the New Testament (cfr. Jn 9:1-2), is the punishment and consequence for sins.
Biblical scripture has had significant influences on the world at large. Examples of this can be seen throughout our history. For example, the Torah gave the Jews their laws and commands which lead to specific traditions. Some of these traditions have even been passed down to us Jewish or not and have stayed. Scripture has also been thwarted to fit an agenda with allowed for bad things to happen to people.
This book wanted to show the impact of the Holy Spirit in scripture. Some would believe that he only came down at the time of pentecost. All is needed is to take a deeper study of scripture to see his hand everywhere. This book provide a Pentecostal and if I can say reformed approach to the view of the Holy Spirit. The book I have to admit was very informal and I learned new things.
