4:3 that the time will come when men will not endure sound doctrine, but instead, will heap up for themselves teachers that will tell them what they want to hear? As J.C. Ryle so pointedly stated, “What men do not like, they try hard not to believe.” This damnable doctrine is known as Annihilationism, which teaches that the wicked do not suffer eternal damnation in hell, but instead are annihilated, brought to utter extinction, never to experience the weight of their rebellion against and rejection of our Lord Jesus Christ. This damnable heresy comes straight from the devil himself who first asked “Yea, hath God said?” and “Ye shall not surely die.” (Gen 3:1, 4) He who holds the keys to death and hell (Rev. 1:18) has more to say about the eternal estate of the wicked than any other in Scripture. Sentimentalizing God Annihilationists appeal to the love and mercy of God as their foundation for the utter annihilation of the wicked at the end of the age.
I will also be discussing the expelling, torture and killing of non-believer and heretics of religions. Issue #1-Religious inspired violence throughout history is inexcusable. There is no reason for such acts of violence, no matter what “scriptures” say. To execute or torture another because their religious views are not as yours is immoral. It is said in many scriptures in all religions that God will punish non-believers and heretics so why would people take matters into their own hands.
The Tower of Babel: A Symbol of Hubris I. Introduction What hubris to defy the omnipotent authority of God – the Creator of all things from time immemorial. Humanity’s existence has long been mindful of the strengths and weaknesses of its pride. However, this did not come to past until God punished man for their excessive arrogance and pride. Mankind became fearful of God and challenged His almighty authority by creating a tower believed by many to reach Heaven.
He abuses her when he becomes infuriated and is extremely sexist while doing so. This does not seem like an admirable character to me. John Proctor is seen throughout the play as a courageous character that stands for what he believes in. however, he committed adultery with Abigail and never truly loses his affection for her, only blocks her out. And when he tries to convince the court that the witch trials are a hoax, he is only doing so to seek revenge on Abigail.
Then they are assessed by a god to see if they are deserving of a step up in the ladder of Moksha If they do not deserve this, then they will move down a step or even two depending on which crime they have committed. If their behaviour has not changed for better or for worse, then sometimes they are born into the same Varna as before. Last of all are the Dalits (or Untouchables). These are the people classed as sub-human - with no job or qualifications, nobody wants to associate or even hire them. Association with the Dalits means that you would become ‘polluted’.
Many thought once again if God let this happen, and let it happen for everyone to see he must not exist. Many felt as though God would not allow such harsh and painful doings to someone so young and innocent, and he would not let it be so everyone could see. Many people’s faith was lessened because of the harsh conditions of the environment. The Jews were forced out of their homes and did not knowing where they were going. This challenged the faith because faith is about not knowing but trusting in God that you will be safe.
He explains that we will always be living on edge because we cannot predict what our future holds. He compares the difference in being a Theist verse Atheist; also he wants us to be honest with ourselves and stop practicing ritual that we don’t believe in but gravitate to when situations arise that we cannot find the answers to. He challenges us to come up with some realistic ceremonies that would “strengthen ourselves in our most testing and tragic times”. The author believes that your spirit and your soul do not live on after you die since they depend on each other to function. The human race will eventually no longer exist just like all others creations here on earth.
Whether the actions are good or bad, follow it and learn from it. After all, no one is perfect and everyone learns from their mistakes. Life is a meaningless state where we stay in doubt and dont listen to our certainty. We continue to let someone influence our way of thinking and well being, instead of doing our own activities from within ourselves. Everything we have done has not been proven to be right or wrong, but it does not mean that it cannot be proven.
In this case, all we have to do is kneel down and seek the Lord in prayer, for if we don’t, the sin goes further and further, and at the end we’ll wonder what had gone wrong, and take our own life, because we didn’t ask God for guidance. The Bible mentions some people who had suicidal thoughts, one of them being Job. Job was going through a tough time because everything he had was taken away from him, and this led him to thinking that life had no meaning for him, but even though he had these thoughts going on in his head, he never gave
Shakespeare shows this through both Iago and Don John’s instability, by having both of them throw everything out on a limb just to boost their reputation. Iago for example seems to have a large insecurity that forces him into doing evil. Most people are stable and don’t care about their reputation enough to murder, but the ones that do act out usually are people that have been treated badly by society. “How tartly that gentleman looks! I never can see him but I am heart-burned an hour after.” (M, I, ii, 56-58) Don John is far from accepted, hence his inability to feel compassion and forcing him to seek stability.
