They felt like society in England was corrupt and straying away from Christian belief so they sought for religious freedom and the idea that they could start a colony that would be whole and unified in God. By doing this, they ran into another form of division when they came across the Native Americans who were already habitants of the land. The Puritans looked at these people as if they were animals or savages and built a wall of division between the two different cultures of people. In John Smith’s, “A General History of Virginia, he said, “Each hour expecting the fury of the savages, when God, the patron of all good endeavors, in that desperate extremity so changed the hearts of the savages, that they brought such plenty of their fruits and provisions that no man wanted.” This just shows you of how they viewed the natives and since it wasn’t one of them, then they were bad people. Instead of trying to get along and work with the Indians, they fought them so that they could have land to establish their colony on.
Here, again we see two instances where a group of people twists their religion to kill these people and cause terror. This doesn't just happen in the middle east, it happens everywhere. We have seen ISIS countless times in France, South American countries, even the U.S. ISIS wants to take government positions to justify these killings even more. They want these positions to spread this mass chaos, and to stronger their reasons. This is just one of the numerous reasons why religion should not be a position in the
In fact, the one and only thing most people could agree on was the notion that slavery was immoral and inhumane. Despite the intricate positions on abolition, the Second Great Awakening influenced many leaders and developed new principles that radiated throughout the country. Christianity was the one unifying factor that most Americans could identify with at the time. The Enlightenment Era challenged old ideas of divine authority and stimulated a more progressive church aiming for equality. With leaders in the church declaring that slavery was a sin, and promoting the idea of a forgiving God, many northerners began to reach out and spread the word of God and secure their eternal salvation.
Farmers were abused by the railroad freight fees, the world market’s dramatic drop of commodity prices caused by overproduction, and tariffs for their goods which resulted in the farmers to be continuously be stuck in debt. Industrial workers constantly suffered in poor working conditions and low pay. It was not uncommon for most workers to work more than ten hours a day. They were also faced with job instability. Missing a day of work could easily could get them fired, and if a worker was faced with an injury or sickness they would have to suck it up and continue working because there was no “sick days”.
With such dreadful conditions, the Jews began initiating resistance and uprisings. Even though the prisoners knew loss was unquestionable, they fought bravely and certain. The Jews wanted the future generation to know that they would never give up without a fight. The Nazi officers kept watch of the prisoners every second; the inhumanity of the guards murdered the spirit of the Jews. Because of the environment of the camps, a countless number of Jews died every day.
Society shouldn’t only be just focused on easily replaceable materialistic things. Instead, the main focus should be on creating special and valuable memories that one can’t buy no matter how much money they have. Today, our life is fast-paced. Many people will often rush from one place to another. Not many of them care enough to stop for a second and take in the scenery around them.
They believed that God had ordained them to conquer other nations, be the supreme race, and demonstrate their dominance over other races by holding slaves. Convinced that slavery was right, they blinded themselves to the truth, and were even able to use Bible verses to make a case for slavery being a right and good thing. Celia’s case was one that shed light on the corruption of the state and the moral depravity of slaveholders, who upheld white dominance over doing the right thing. With their god-complex, they went as far as to put themselves on a pedestal above God. The condemnation of Celia to death demonstrated that whites would go to great lengths to protect their beloved institution of

All slaves there were treated badly. They were beaten if their work didn’t satisfy the master. Although the master Legree believed in Christianity, he had the bad understanding of it. In the novel, some plantation master use specific doctrine to regulate the slaves and make slavery legal and comply with Christianity. Legree was one of them.
