Wiesel starts to blame God for the misdoing he has posed on him especially since he was a devout worshiper. This soon turns into Elie completely rejecting God and doubting his entire existence. For most of us, at first glance, this seems extremely harsh and irrational but I too would feel this way. Wiesel put his heart and soul into the loving of God and he felt as if he was betrayed. “Never shall I forget those moments which murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to dust.” In the book, many literary terms are used to depict the silence portrayed through many characters.
Father Greg is committing a grave sin in carrying out his affair with a man. The sin is twofold since both sexual relations and homosexuality are forbidden by the church. Here, he is in stark contrast to father Mathew who believes that his imperfections, his sins, actually make him a better man and thus a better priest. Father Greg sees himself as a presenting a higher authority, while Father Mathew sees himself as one of the people, understanding, rather than pointing out human imperfections. Father Greg confesses his affair, but the confession does not bring him much comfort.
As he defines the answer to the clergymen’s is that a law was unethical so does not considers as a law, because the law is made to guard the citizens not to penalize them. The past has presented what if people were overlooked they will turn into violent protest for their rights. So overall the obstruction of what King handled was with the church, because his
Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.” I would agree with St. Augustine, "an unjust law is no law at all." Martin Luther King brings up examples of how Christians broke the law when it went against the laws of the church and pertains it to the situation that he is in. Dr. King’s main argument to those who have written to him is that they do not really understand the situation. From their view, it seems as though he is being radical with his actions when he leads demonstrations or sit-ins or other things of that nature. Dr. King explains that they are not there witnessing the injustices that are taking place, not only against him, but also against all people who share his color.
The Puritan way of meetings involves a lengthy sermon, where the preacher persecutes its congregation’s sins. This way of meetings is not enjoyable or enlightening for the attendee. The people in the congregation would not feel enlightened if they were ridiculed for sins in front of their peers. In the Quaker religion, there is no higher authority like the priest to criticize you because you are the leader of your faith. Also, the lengthy sermon of a specific part of the bible would certainly be boring and a waste of time to the people of Puritan society.
By law, he was a sinner and might be sentenced to death. But on moral side, he deserved to be sympathized and forgiven. He was as feeble as each of us. What made him do those were people the society where he lived. And it could be said that no one had the right to judge him except God.
Although Job is described by Satan as “You will find no one like him on earth, a man of blameless and upright life, who fears God and sets his face against wrongdoing.” (p.511), he is still reluctant to believe that Job will remain sinless “in the face of disaster”, and suggests they eradicate his material possessions, including his children, to test his faith. Through a great amount of self control and confidence in God, Job remains calm and sin-free. Satan then manipulates God into allowing another set of tests in which Job himself is physically harmed by ragingly painful sores, but once again Job maintained strong and faithful, without cursing once. The book then centers on Job’s interpretation of God’s actions. He curses the day of his birth as well as the night of his conception, stating “Why is life given to those who find it so bitter?” (p.512).
He also rejects some of the society morals and goes against doctrines from the church when he says “no law can be sacred to me but that of my nature” (Emerson 262). He says about consistency that it is this keeping us from trusting in ourselves, because we are scared of contradictions, of fighting for something we disagreed before but man should be consistent on the variety of actions honest he has been. However, he says that consistency is a big problem because it is this that keeps a man from breaking a pattern in which he lives. Men are also consistent on everything they do because of fear of making a mistake and as a consecutive being looked
This event in the novel climaxes Inman’s search for spirituality. By stopping a “Godly” man from committing such a wicked act, he realizes his soul is strong. He didn’t pass by without a second glance, which many people would have, but instead he made the preacher pay for the sins he was committing. Inman may not have thought anything of it at the time, but this event would be remembered by that community and change the world. He taught the small town that people must do the right thing even when nobody is watching and they must follow what they know is right no matter who it is or what they tell you.
Naturalist do not believe in more than just matter, they look at things as if I cannot see it then it is not there. However, as a Christians, I believe in more and I know our God is out there helping us through our lives. Naturalist look at us as machines that all of our emotions and such are just reactions in our brains, but Christians believe that everything we do is the creation of God. Secular humanist and Christians are so different I use my religion to help stay in line. Secular humanist feel that religion is really a negative thing because it gives you rules to follow therefore you never really follow your deepest desires.
