‘Deprogramming’ from FDLS, Warren Jeffs’ secretive cult Kenneth Thomas is a father and a husband that has lost his family to the church of Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, also known as the Mormon Church. He and his wife had been married for about seventeen years. They have children that range from four years of age to eighteen. The use of contraception and having a miscarriage was the reason the church is exclude them from the camp.

Paul wrote this letter because of the hostility between the churches. The Christian jews wanted the gentiles to be circumcised and observed the torah before becoming saved. During this time there was great tension between jews and gentiles. Paul wanted the churches to know that they were battling desires of the flesh by this fighting. Paul also wanted the churches to know “if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.” Paul wanted Jews and Gentiles to know if they are “walking
This theme is people, and God created all people. Culture is a part of human relationships that must not be overlooked. In Romans 3:28-30, Paul addresses culture and the fact “that man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.” Paul spoke to the Jews regarding their neglecting of other cultures. The Jewish culture was so worried about the law that they could not justify anything or anyone outside of it. Therefore, The Jews denied the Gentile culture and neglected them.
In the article, “The Death of Jesus and the Ways of God: Jesus and the Gospels on Messianic Status and Shameful Suffering by J. B. Green” states what is presented in Luke 23:1-5; Matt. 26:63; Deut. 13, “This not only implies a motivation for Jesus' condemnation by the Jewish council, but also suggests the ease with which concerns of this nature could be parlayed into terms of Jesus' threat to the Roman empire.” This is expressing the case that not only the Jewish leaders had points for condemning Christ but so did the Roman Empire. Pilate could not afford a uprising in Judea as it would look poor on him from the perspective of the Roman Empire and the Jewish leadership could not afford the people to be swayed from their power as well as in fear of the Roman occupation over them that could take away their power, traditions and beliefs but all in all their way of life.

Reverend Parris is a priest who is supposed to preach about the good will of God, but Reverend Parris abuses his power by preaching instead about “golden candlesticks” and pensioning the townspeople to give him more salary, give him the deed to his house, and to do so he was willing to kill innocents. “And yet silent, minister? It is fraud you know it is fraud! What keeps you man? Said Giles (78).
And people being as they are, had to find someone to blame, So they chose the Jewish because they already didn't approve of their beliefs. In ancient times Romans demanded that the Jews convert to Christianity. If they didnt, they were denied citizenship rights and protection under law. At the end of the fourth century, as the fight between Christianity and Judaism intensified, Jews were labeled with the vicious title of "Christ killers," because
He’s letting the congregation know that once you’re over hell you can’t find a way to save yourself from going in. Last example is also located in paragraph three, Edwards says to the congregation, “There is nothing between you and hell but the air; it is only the power and mere pleasure of God that holds you up” (Edwards 3). He’s telling them that God is the one who decides if you go to hell or not. Jonathan Edwards uses anaphora for an affect. He’s trying to let them know that hell is a real place and they can end up there if they keep sinning so they need to be aware of what they’re doing.
This was dictated from identifying this through the Jews and Gentiles. If you called yourself a Jew, you basically relied on the law and boast of God. Gentiles didn’t rely on that of the laws.

I found this to be his main strategy of grabbing the reader’s attention and expressing his purpose to them. He talks about Jewish, Christian, and Turkish religions finding the questionable views of each one. “The Jews say that there word of God was given by God to Moses face to face; the Christians say their word of God came by divine inspiration; and the Turks sat that their word of God was brought by an angle from haven”(101). He then tells the readers what he thinks about each religion “…I disbelieve them all” (101). By expressing this it makes a more persuasive argument to the readers simply because he is exploiting the oblivious.
