There is no need to be scared to go to heaven because heaven is a better and more peaceful place. I believe in this essay Jonathan Edwards tries to scare you to be afraid of the lord and it actually causes the feeling of the peaceful and loving god you believe in into someone to be scared of. If you believe in Christ you shouldn’t be afraid and later throughout my essay you will find out why. Everyone will be held through the same punishment in the time the lord shall come but it wouldn’t be anything dramatic. If you believe in him and read the bible correctly god
Surely and all loving (omnibenevolent) God wouldn’t allow this. Human Evil is where people cause harm to others and create chaos. Why would God create a world that consists of evil and cruelty? therefore Mill questions the idea of an omnibenevolent God, however if it is disagreed that God isn’t all loving then it could suggest that God doesn’t know of our suffering and could mean that omniscience cannot possibly be an attribute of God. Mill would say that if God is omniscient then surely he is aware of our suffering and would therefore intervene in the evil as he loves us all.
However some Christians may disagree because some believe that ‘a man reaps what he sows’; and so they should get what they gave out and suffer the dire consequences 5. Many Christians believe that ‘good conquers all evil’ and so if the young offenders are helped and give back to the community then they would believe that they should be helped. They also believe that you should ‘love thy neighbour’ no matter what their circumstance, they should treat them as they would like to be treated. On the other hand, some atheists may say that punishment provides deterrence and provides protection in society from those who are
Christianity teaches that people should not work on the day of Sabbath as God himself didn’t and that it should be the day of rest. However, Jesus didn’t follow these rules and decided to do the most loving thing and heal a sick person on this day even though he wasn’t supposed to. Some could argue that situation ethics and its ideas about love fit into Christian theology perfectly because even Jesus broke rules to do the most loving thing possible. Johns part of the gospels state that “God is love” and from this we can interpret that Christians must live their lives by trying to be Omnibenevolent and doing the most loving thing in all situations no matter how extreme. Fletcher incorporated the quote from the gospels into his ethical theory and devised six propositions and four principles.
Their effectiveness is due to how the examples display our, America’s, usage of Christian beliefs compared to what the actual beliefs say. His most effective example would have to be when he describes how America breaks one of the Ten Commandments themselves. It is true we are a nation that still permits the death penalty. However, the irony he displays sets it apart from the others because the sixth commandment itself says “Thou Shall Not Kill.” Not only that, his perspective of how we say we are Christian is also good for his argument. One negative aspect to his essay would have to be his bias toward conservatives and the rich.
The Sermon on the Mount is one hundred percent anti retaliation. If someone even does anything evil to you, you’re supposed to turn the other cheek, forgive, and pray for the ones who did you wrong. As a people we have a hard time following this simple rule because we don’t want to let people walk all over us, but apparently that’s the ideal way to live one’s life. The main reasons for this rule of living a moral life is that everyone, righteous or evil, are children of the all mighty God above. “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Matthews 676).
MLK Responces 1. Injustice anywhere is always a threat to justice everywhere because there is still that fear of oppression that people are dealing with. Injustice is this situation is trying to be kept hidden because the white moderate and church just feel that they do not need to get involved. There will never be complete Justice until all of the Injustice is removed so all people have the equal rights and oppression will not be something that people would have to go against. I agree with King because it is just a powerful meaning that was so true at that time.
These are mainly Roman Catholics and they disagree because they say that ‘life being at the moment of conception’ (page102) so if the embryos are used then it is like killing a baby which is banned by the Bible and the church. Even though Roman Catholics disagree with embryo use, they agree with the same things that the liberal Protestants agree with about genetic engineering. Also, some Christians are against genetic engineering completely. This is because they say that God made us how we are so we are in no place to interfere with Gods will. They also believe that genetic modification is almost like playing Gods role, which is seen as disrespectful to God.
They also believe that unbelievers can commit sin cause they do not fear Allah ,Ask a Muslim why you will not take what is not his and would say because of the teaching of our religion. 5.The Question of Destiny-The Muslims beliefs our similar to the Christian beliefs that they believe in Paradise(Christian calls Heaven) and Hell. They believe that they will reach Paradise by their good works. Thy also believe that like the Christian that if they do not accept God(Allah to the Muslim) that their eternal state is
In my opinion, the penalties for hate crimes should continue to be more severe than that of a regular crime because so many innocent people are injured and even killed simply because they are different. People should have the right to live in America free of fear that something will happen to them simply because they were not born a certain color, they practice a different religion or that they happen to be
