Though Romans says that human nature is that we are sinners. Human beings are slaves to sin and seem to be powerless against it. We understand that we are not righteous at all, and that we need a relationship with God, so that we can be empowered by His righteous. His righteous comes through our faith in Jesus Christ. Only he can redeem, justify, and sanctify us, and we need all three for our salvation.
The Lord warned that “Men would think that they were offering service for God”. The purpose of religious persecution is to force a set of religious beliefs or convictions on the oppressed in the “name of God”. The time of the Crusades is truly a blight on the name of Christianity, not just based on the violence alone but the motivation behind
Next, we will list some moments were the mixture of religions can be found: In theory we have that Beowulf is our hero and savior of people just as Jesus was, and that symbolism comes from Christianity, however, we have the very strong paganism element which would be the “killing”, even when our hero saves people he does it by murdering monsters, action that in Christianity is not accepted, so clearly we can see the mixture of both religions. Moreover, even when Beowulf would be the equivalent of Jesus as said before, there are some differences proper from paganism. First we have that Beowulf goes with
A KoF can be the good guy or the bad guy, depending on how you view religion and the story of Abraham and Isaac for this purpose. A true KoF will be the individual or group of individuals who will defy the common worldly law of ethics in order to fulfill a religious duty.

Holden has proven to hint at the idea that he has been a bit too much influenced by movies, which would most likely be a reason why Allie’s death was such a big deal. The movies have had a role in Holden’s life because they made him to believe that the protagonist or the “good” guy always miraculously survives dire situations, which made him believe that Allie would survive somehow through the leukemia. This idea was hinted towards when Holden was talking about how he felt after Maurice had punched him in the gut, Holden said that he was picturing himself going to the elevator, shooting Maurice, smoking a cigarette, and call up Janet to bandage him up. The idea of the “good” guy winning the battle is a very typical movie type of ending, which points to how influenced Holden is by the movies. The very same type of ending was seen when Holden recalled the movie he watched about the Englishman who had lost his memory and his response to it.
We can also discern the true Shepherd's through their teachings about the incarnation of Christ and deity of our Lord Jesus. Our Saviour advised us "by their fruit you will recognize them. "(Matthew 7:20). If someone is not providing teaching based on Jesus Christ's theology then he is proving himself false.

Many Christians maintain that a historical examination of Christianity will reveal that a biblical view of the fall requires affirmation of the concept of original sin. Humans therefore sin because we have a corrupt and fallen nature.
Thomas More takes the side of the church and follows the idea that God judges the consciences of all, and if one is against God, then that person could be considered evil. “More went to his death as he said on the scaffold, “the king’s good servant and God’s first” ( Lahr). More believes that following God is the only way to go even if it resulted to death. More decides to stay true to his own beliefs and his own conscience based off of what is morally right under the law of God.
