God plays an important role to connect the people together, which enhances Lincoln’s credibility in his speech besides his position as a president and occasion of this speech. Lincoln ended his speech by claiming that they would “strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations” (Wilhoit
Kennedy begins his speech by stating that we, as the United States are willing to help any friend or indifferent group in the pursuit of liberty. Using anaphora, he says that we must help our old allies, the new states, people in huts and villages, our sister republics South of the border, and the nations that would make themselves our adversary. He uses anaphora in order to emphasize the inclusion of any party that wants the support of America. He uses inversion in the sentence, “United, there is little we cannot do […] Divided, there is little we can do”, to support his plea for unity. Also, by stating the asyndeton, “pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and success of liberty,” he all but defines Americas wish for liberty.
is a united states philosophy that seeks to justify the manner in which this country has understood its place in the world and how it interact with other. Supporters of Manifest Destiny believe that the expansion is not only good but also obvious ( manifest) and accurate (target). Manifest Destiny has sustained the belief that God chose the people for political and economic power and the U.S. is a nation different than the rest of the world. And the way to prove it is "spread throughout the continent that has been assigned by the-Divine-Providence, to develop the great experiment of liberty and self government." It first appears in an article wrote by the journalist John L. Annexation O'Sullivan, published in New York Democratic Review, in July-August 1845.
Patrick Henry's Speech Analysis In the speech, “Give Me Liberty, or Give Me Death,” Patrick Henry set out to convince theVirginia delegates that war with England was inevitable and the longer they waited the harder the war would be to win. Patrick Henry displays immaculate persuasion skills that disarm his audience from favoring reconciliation with Britain. Henry uses rhetorical strategies, such as, allusions, parallelism, and repetition to captivate his audience and appeal to their emotions. Henry institutes effective use of the range of appeals, ethos, logos, and pathos cementing the speech in physical and mental wholeness. These devices and strategies being used result in highly persuasive, motivational, and emotional words and ideas which produce an extremely powerful speech.
In Martin Luther King’s acceptance speech for the noble peace prize, he articulates that nonviolence is a perfect answer to the crucial political and more question of our time- the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to violence and oppression. Individuals of the black race were patronized and attacked due to racial injustice. MLK created a notion of nonviolence in order to end this injustice. He emphasizes that demonstrating a nonviolent demeanor is a much powerful force, which allows social transformation. However in order for social transformation to exist we must all develop a mentality/lifestyle that rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation.
Christians were promised that if they joined the war, they would be forgiven of sins and guaranteed a place in heaven, which was irresistible to many people. The motto of the first crusade was 'Deus vult,' or 'God wills it.' With these calls to action from the Pope, the lay public became the 'Soldiers of the Church.' Thus, there were internal motivations on the part of the public to fight the war in order to become holier. There were also economic motivations behind the Crusades.
He begins by establishing rapport between himself and his audience by stating that he receives many criticisms and that he has personally decided to respond to this one because he believes the clergymen are “of genuine good will” and that their criticisms “are sincerely set forth.” The argument that the clergymen have used against King is that “outsiders [should not be] coming in” to Birmingham. King first starts to respond to this criticism by appealing to his ethos, stating that he has “the honor of serving as president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.” He uses the authority that he has as the president of the SCLC to claim that he has a right to be in Birmingham “because [he] was invited [to Birmingham]” and that he has “organizational ties [in Birmingham].” He then proceeds to appeal to pathos when he compares himself to the Apostle Paul as a peacemaking, “gospel of freedom” teaching prophet who has come to Birmingham “because injustice is here” and he is answering “the Macedonian call for aid.” This appeal to religion is used because his audience is a
This only happens if we choose for it to happen. He gives us the choice to walk by his side or keep a distance which you should not want. It is the choice of whether or not you want your life to be all about you or about you and God. A form of ethos that this song shows is God wants us to to stand up for what we believe in, no matter what it is. That is probably one of the biggest reasons he gives us free will.The reason that we believe this is because he is God Almighty, creator of heavens and the earth.
God put rulers over us for a reason. In Article 36 of the Belgic Confession, God says that “he wants the world to be governed by laws and policies so that human lawlessness may be restrained and that everything may be conducted in good order among human beings.” This is exactly what the law is for, to promote good, to protect people’s rights and freedoms, to solve conflicts, and to make a better world. These last few reasons are from a secular point of view, but still have the truth in them. From a Christian point of view, the law is to convict people of their sin, serve as a guide for the Christian mind and conduct, to maintain order and punish wrongdoers, as well as to promote good. In the Ten Commandments, God tells us to honour our father and our mother.
