Flaws Within the Flawless As an inherently flawed element, human nature will continuously battle with right and wrong, and failure will persist without guidance. Dostoevski highlights this conclusion in his work The Grand Inquisitor. According to the Grand Inquisitor, the most important aspects of our human nature are the inability to handle freedom and a yearning for a miraculous being. In his approach to governing these aspects, the argument he defends that Christ’s rejection of the temptations has permanently hindered human nature may appear true. However, the Grand Inquisitor’s rejection that the nature of man has potential to change when we accept Christ as our savior highlights the weak link in his argument.
Either you believe science or you have “blind faith” in some religion. Honestly, it all depends on the person. In Matt 4:17 it says, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” With this being said repent means, to change your mind. If you never believe or have faith in anything, it’s privilege to get it. Most people say it is up to you to believe whatever, but then again there is believing or knowing the truth in life.
He, like all those before and after him, was wondering why God was allowing His chosen people to go through the suffering they were having to endure at the hands of their enemies. He didn’t understand why no matter no matter how much he cries out for God to save them, God has not yet changed the situation. [footnote1] While Habakkuk begins by wondering or worrying about the world around him and God’s seeming indifference, he ends by worshipping God. [footnote2] Habakkuk’s name means to embrace or wrestle. Per usual, his name has to do with the message in his book.
Lot of persons don’t want to escape from the cage that it was created around them from the Christianity beliefs. Maybe they are using God just as an example of perfection that they can relay on, or maybe it is for them an example of supreme power that could give help and support in difficult moments. We should not forget all the way that Church made during time, and that all those proofs that gave credibility to Christianity may be all false. If god, as the father of human kind, would have existed, he wouldn’t let all those catastrophes to happen (Katrina, 2004’ Tsunami, and many others…). What kind of father would be the one that let its children to die in such terrible ways!?!
Naturalist do not believe in more than just matter, they look at things as if I cannot see it then it is not there. However, as a Christians, I believe in more and I know our God is out there helping us through our lives. Naturalist look at us as machines that all of our emotions and such are just reactions in our brains, but Christians believe that everything we do is the creation of God. Secular humanist and Christians are so different I use my religion to help stay in line. Secular humanist feel that religion is really a negative thing because it gives you rules to follow therefore you never really follow your deepest desires.
When you look at the views today, many people are believing today that we don’t need God, and he’s not who everyone thought he was. The society we live in each person has a different view on religion and God, and they assume that people will make fun of them for what they believe in. One person should not care what other people think about them if you believe in God and what he says makes you feel good about yourself don’t let anyone get in the way of that. God will always be there for you and for the people what want to make fun of
As Jesus said, "what God has joined together, let not man separate" Mathew 19:6. We all try to do what the bible tells us we should do, because we need to be the best Christians we can possibly be. But we all sin and times get hard and that is when we need to make decisions as sinners of what we should do, and it may come down to divorce. No one wants to be divorced and have to have their children go through all that pain, but we never know
While one may believe there are individuals who are the utmost holy and divine like, Hawthorne would fail to agree with this opinion. We are repeatedly burdened with Hawthorne's idea that we are helpless, imperfect beings who cannot help but sin and make wrong choices. Along with this point, Hawthorne believes that we are unable own up to the wrongs that we make and consciously choose to keep our sins buried within ourselves. Taking these thoughts to consideration, one should reflect upon these ideas and beliefs in high hopes of separating themselves from sin as much as our nature will
In this same song, “Well, see what you want to see, you should see it all”, refers to Christians only seeing the good in God and only credit him when great things happening without acknowledging the bad things, such as disease and natural disaster, as being His fault. Religion puts blinders on people. In, “Parting of the Sensory”, the lyrics say, “We put all our chips in all the right spots but still lost” , which is another example of people praying and doing everything that the Christianity religion tells them is right but still are plagued with bad things in life. Another song representing this same idea is, “3rd Planet”, which says, “Your heart felt good , it was dripping pitch and made of wood. And your hands and knees felt
Atheist may feel their punishment is complete once they served their sentence, but since Christians believe taking someone’s life is committing a sin; they therefore question the likelihood of their soul entering into heaven. This principle held by Christians lays a greater feeling of sorrow for their decisions. Many people have been raised upon the idea of what is right or wrong, but it is evident that not everyone can come to an agreeable term. The religious and nonreligious laws have affected the decisions one would make. Yet, the history of a person’s background will determine the feelings they have towards their own
