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.
He basically degrades the entire Bible by saying that there is no fact in the world and everything is an interpretation. He claims the truth is unnecessary to be spoken because it is only necessary to speak the truth when the untruth is so false that it can be detected. Nietzsche shares his belief that a human’s life is 100% controlled by the individual and all success should be credited to that individual. Then he disrespects all Christians by claiming they are a species of weak failures looking for pity that shall parish to the strong-willed all-powerful being. I strongly disagree with almost everything Fredrick Nietzsche writes about in this section of the reading.
For example Anti-Christian Sentiment, Anti-Islamism, Anti-Catholicism, this happen because of lack of education or born with their parents died or they don’t believe in the idea of god because some of the scientists can create thing by their own, so they think belief on their own self and creativity rather than some kind of miracle that is absurd. There are many religions in the world with their own symbol and history just like Buddhism, Christian, Islamic, Hinduism and Confucianism. All these religion intended to explain the meaning of life, origin of life and the universe. The religion derived morality, ethic and religious laws. The practice of religion included music, rituals, festivals, sacrifices and prayers.
However one fact remains, both individuals went against the church by defying both it's legitimacy and power as well as it’s power, but as aforementioned, for very different purposes, but in both cases resulted in earning the title of heretic. Another area in which contrast could be seen between the two “heretics” was what one could call the outcome of their heretic practices against the church. In the case of Martin Luther he was excommunicated and sought after, but even more significantly he never recanted for his work nor apologized for it or for his clear contradiction against the Church. While on the other hand, Galileo recanted all his works, and suffered only a sentence of house arrest as a result. Each man although both suffered the burden of the title of being a heretic, each earned the infamous title through different manners, and each suffered contrasting consequences as a result of what was regarded as heretical practices.
Jonathan Edwards v. Anne Bradstreet In a number of his writings, specifically “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” Jonathan Edwards preaches literal fear of an arbitrary, unpredictable and vengeful God. Anne Bradstreet, on the other hand, believed (with human error) in a loving, trustworthy God. It seems almost impossible that these two views trace their origins to a common source. I will seek in this piece to uncover the fundamental discrepancy in the works of Bradstreet and Edwards. In “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” Edwards brings into question the salvation of anyone who has not been “born again.” He never directly questions his own salvation, but declares that many in the congregation to which he is speaking will soon find themselves burning in hell.
In 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, Paul specified that “believers are engaged in a spiritual battle against forces which stand against the knowledge of God (Anderson, 2000). Anderson also believed that before people received Christ into their lives, they were slaves to their sin, and because Christ hung on the cross and paid the price for our sin, sin no longer have dominion over them. He also believed that maturity and freedom are essential to a Christian’s life. Anderson stated that Satan has no right or ownership or authority over God’s children (Anderson, 2000, p. 11). Anderson also stated that “the Western world has experienced a massive paradigm shift in its worldview and voiced his concern about the influence of the “kingdom of darkness” (pp.
The gods believed that they were so intolerable that they express that, “sleep is no longer possible by reason of babel” (“Gilgamesh, The Flood Story” 23). The gods believed them to be loud and pesky, and found no solution fitting other than termination through inundation. The Bible’s account of the reasoning for the flood is much more in-depth and has a more deeply rooted meaning. God saw that there was evil in man’s heart, and He knew that to fix this problem meant to abolish man. While the Sumerian gods believed that people were pests, the Christian God believed people were becoming naturally evil.
He even gets mad at her, saying that he “will not have [her] susp[ect] any more” (Miller, 54). To stop the reminders his wife gives him of his infidelity, he upbraids her. Elizabeth becomes the innocent victim of Proctor’s wrongdoing. Guilt affects others, not only the sinners. Furthermore, Proctor is guilty of dishonesty because he is the only person who knows that Abigail’s allegations of witchcraft are fraudulent but he is too afraid for his reputation to tell the truth and risk exposing his adultery.
He observated and supported theory that earth is in the center and sun moves around. His theory had conflict with church because he wanted to change people`s way of thinking.about creation the world such as his heliocentric theory. He was arrested by the leaders of catholic church when he pushed his theory. Catholic church didn`t like it because God created everything in specific order, so they didn`t want anyone to change it. Galileo recant his theory when people who arrested him used torture tools.
Dante's Inferno Dante's Inferno stirs up much conflict concerning the Divine Justice, Grace, and Love of God. With all the cruel punishment being received by sinners all though out hell, many question the mercy of God that is being preached. But those skeptics refuse to accept that every human was warned of the consequences that would result from their actions before they ever even thought about committing that sin. Not only that, but they are also given a chance to repent and find their way back to the right path, but they refused to. Therefore as they step out of this world, which many claim as cruel, they enter into a true living hell in which they are doomed for eternity.
