What is needed is action-action." (John Brown) John Brown didn’t want to just talk he wanted to go out there and show people he wanted slavery gone by any means, and that’s just what he did. After this meeting Brown and his men attacked Harper’s Ferry.

The master could go on whipping forever and the slave had no control over it. 5. Metaphor: p.20 “it was the blood stained gate, the entrance to the hell of slavery, that I was about to pass.” He uses this to show how much the whipping of his aunt traumatized him, and to show how horrible slavery was.
I believe we think this because in the bible we are taught that god takes time to create and mold each individual. In the story of Popul VUH we are given generic creations multiple times. Where there is a Noah or Adam and Eve, in opposite there is they, human, daughter, or mold of the maker.

And the Lord regretted having made the human on earth and was grieved to the heart”(Genesis 6). It is at this point that the Lord said, “I will wipe out the human race I created from the face of the earth, from human to cattle to crawling thing to the fowl of the heavens, for I regret that I have made them” (Genesis 6). This brought on the motivation to build the great boat. The Lord picked Noah because he “was a righteous man, he was blameless in his time” to build the ark. In the story of Gilgamesh, Utanapishtim told Gilgamesh “I will reveal to you, O Gilgamesh, a secret matter” (9), “Wreck
Islam, the youngest religion in all three, was founded by Muhammad. In Islam, Muhammad is the last and the greatest prophet of the God and received revelations from the God.

After five years of living with this band, Daniel returns to the village. There is a knowledgeable carpenter named Jesus who often spoke to large crowds and after seeing him, Daniel was unsure who he should follow. Jesus and love or Rosh and war.

No pleasure but meanness.” He was an extremist—a black or white thinker. If he had believed that Jesus had raised the dead he would have been good only out of compunction and not from a sincere heart. At one point he had been a Christian but apparently lost his faith.
