We are not body, soul, and spirit, as taught in the Bible, but just body.” This means that all humans are created with somewhat of a sense of morality. I say “somewhat” for the sake of the mentally disabled. Everyone will be held accountable for how they lived their life here on earth, whether mentally challenged or not. Many theologians and I myself fully agree with this statement. Theologians like Dan Story obviously believe that no one person can judge.
The freewill defence argues that freewill is an essential part of humanity, without which we would be like robots. This explains why freewill is sufficiently worth the risk of evil, as many circumstances of evil are a part of the soul-making process according to John Hick. Genuine freewill requires the possibility of evil and without this possibility we would have freewill. It then argues that all the accounts of evil that have happened throughout history were necessary to our freewill. This explains why God did not simply step in and save us from the worst effects of our choices.
“When I died they washed me out of the turret with a hose.”(Jarrel) This shows the dark side of war which Leper understands is the truth. When he first enlisted in the army he thought war could be fun, clean, and innocent when he film with the American cross country skiing. After joining the army he soon realized that fun does not exist in war and it can make you mad which happened to him by getting a section 8 disband for being crazy. When Leper probably grasp all of the things he would have to do mentally he realized that he could not do it and for that it made him crazy. “Six miles from earth, loosed from its dream of life” (Jarrel) When going to war a soldier must feel that he or she is six miles from earth and one a distant planet and that right there would make anyone go crazy being pulled out of their everyday life and being pushed in this hell hole called war would be enough for anyone to go crazy and eventually lose their hopes and
I think this is just can-do spirit. Another scene which impressed me most was that Cogburn’s saving Mattie. Because Mattie was bite by a poisonous snake. At the beginning, they rode the horse, but later, the horse was tired to death. So Cogburn had nothing to do take Mattie and run.
Dr. King recognizes that this is a potential flaw in collective action, but the justice pursued by his movement prevents his collective from such ill effects. Dr. King’s affinity for collective action is largely due to the nature of his problem. Just as Gandhi in India did, when faced with ridiculous oppression, King moves people to nonviolently protest such oppression. When the oppressors violently crack down, the lunacy of the oppression is made apparent and realized by the masses. Dr. King uses group action to reveal to the larger group to poor state of
Over the course of the novel, Jem’s concern for other innocent creatures changes dramatically. In the first few chapters, Jem shows his selfishness and naïve view of life by stating that a turtle would come out by striking a match under him. However, after witnessing the prejudice in the Tom Robinson case, Jem understands the pain that comes from the power of hate. From then on, Jem is protective of every innocent creature. This is shown as he tells Scout that the reason she shouldn’t squash the Rolly Polly was because “They didn’t bother you.” (pg.
Both believe in one ruler over all, both believe in a good place (heaven) and bad place (hell) after death, and both believe in guidance through spiritual leaders(prophets), to name a few. Another reason I believe Natives practices have not been abandon is because their culture is inextricably linked and connected with Mother Earth. The land, the plants, the animals, and all around contain their culture, spirit, and identity; all working together to create a balance of harmony (Page 68). How can a culture’s spiritual identity gets lost when it is rooted into everything living and non-living? Lastly, spirituality was designed without written rules to be edited and manipulated, without limits and boundaries, without segregation and prejudice.
Kiley was exposed to an unspeakable event at such a young age and does the only thing his immature mind could muster up. Sadly, the baby water buffalo was the recipient of Kiley’s misplaced anger. He was not angry at the water buffalo, he was letting his anger out so he could essentially function better in the war. This is significant because the war did not allow Kiley to properly mourn Lemon’s death. Rat was unable to sit with his thoughts and the only emotion that comes out is he had was physical.
