He had many more points that just charity and consistency, and they were all very important, but I thought these two were the most interesting and most controversial within today’s society. Emerson’s view on anti-religion is also a strong subject that is viewed down upon by most people. Emerson felt the Christian religion dampened the spirit rather than bringing it up. Although Emerson was against religion in some ways, he still mentions God and a “higher power” throughout his essay, so it shows that he does believe in some form of higher power. Hitchens is very anti-religious and is a well-known atheist.
However many Christians may disagree because many experiments must be taken out on a foetus and thus is morally wrong 4. Many Christians believe in the quality of life and how being given a limb can increase how fulfilling and enjoyable one’s life could be. They also would support it because it would be giving someone a gift after someone has died.
Food Inc. The Truth is out Before watching Food Inc., my perception of the food industry was very good. I thought that everything that is processed is done through a very hygienic manner. I thought that animals like chickens were brought up in farms and cows were fed grass. But it wasn’t until I watched Food Inc., that my perception of the food industry shift and I started to watch out for what I eat.
While Dimmsdale had his congregation and duty to God to follow His word. Both sides of the relationship are shown through Pearl. She has an extreme habit of being disobedient to her father and her mother, something that both Hester and Dimmsdale composed when they were disobedient to God, but she is also beautiful and loving just like the passion that her mother and father felt for each other. Pearl, is a highly ambiguous character in The Scarlet Letter. She is not only a disobedient and untamed elf, but also a beautiful, flower like child.
Inside the society of Salem, you either abide by theocracy, God’s word and The Ten Commandments or you get excommunicated from the society. Maintaining a good reputation is therefore essential in belonging in the community. Trying to sustain a good reputation is seen mostly with Abigail Williams. Due to her deceitful and manipulative ways, it is essential for her to cover up any trace of wrong doing she has done to carry on a healthy reputation. It is evident she cares for her reputation as she constantly says things like “...There be no blush about my name.”(pg.20) and “...
John Proctor fights to keep his good name in the community, Reverend Parris strives to keep his good reputation in Salem, and Reverend Hale regrets his actions and works to correct them. It is obvious that thoughts , words and actions can affect one’s good name, and maintain one’s reputation is a main theme of The Crucible. John and his wife Elizabeth Proctor fight to keep John’s good name in the town of Salem. In act two of the play the Proctors are visited by Reverend Hale who is questioning John and Elizabeth to make sure they are true to the church and do not traffic with the devil. Hale is also at the Proctor household because Elizabeth’s name was mentioned in the court and Hale decided he would notify them and take precautions.
Some people, instead of still ostracizing her because of her sin, began to look upon the “A” as a sign of strength, standing for Able rather than its original purpose. Arthur Dimmesdale was the man with whom Hester had fallen in love. He was the minister of a church, yet told his followers not of his sin and instead kept his false face as the angelic priest of God. But instead of making things better for himself, he only made them worse. By sinning and keeping it secret, he was breaking two of God's most important laws: Do not commit adultery, and do not lie.
Its hard to comprehend that the lord just forgives us of our sins so easily and its almost too good to be true. I feel that its one of those things that you just have to be patient and with time you can accept this great thing the lord does for us. A lot of Christians carry around guilt and don’t realize that once they are born again they are graciously forgiven. This guilt that these Christians carry around inhibits them from being at there full potential and that’s why they need to let go of there sin, just as the Lord as let it go as well. "'The assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1) Faith is a powerful thing.
It seems like they are involved with a lot of political issues before such as abortion, which they oppose but I can understand King’s confusion and frustation about his self entitlement to the church. He still loves the church it is just that they are part of the white moderate that say wait it will be fine instead of taking direct action like the church used to do. The church needs more spiritual leaders or movements for segregation because God would not think segregation is morally right. 4. He is sick of the White moderate the most because he had so much hope that they would help but disappointment is what happened and it is really sad to see that.
Also his experience from Mrs. Dubose, and from Boo Radley bring about many changes for Jem. “I always thought Maycomb folks were the best folks in the world, least that’s what they up in the town of Maycomb. But the trial of Tom Robinson made him think that this wasn’t true. Jem believed that no one in the town did anything to help Tom. He saw how racist the town was.
