The professor’s observations reveal that while Captain Nemo shows passive respect to God as the Creator of the natural world, he doesn't have true faith in The Creator nor revealed religion. Rather, he rebels against natural and man made law, and ultimately rejects human society, seeking revenge against humanity for perceived wrongs. The evidence that Captain Nemo respects God as the Creator is replete. Captain Nemo values the lives of those he holds dear, such as when he cried after his crew member died or when he saved the life of the pearl diver. In mourning and saving life, Captain Nemo showed a certain gratefulness for God’s creations.
Like the Puritans, he planned to combat natural inclinations by building a life of strong moral preservation. While Franklin did not have as devoted a belief in God as the Puritans, he did believe in God and believed in the importance of good deeds and services. He also believed that all crimes were punishable, like the Puritans, who believed that God gave punishments to all wrongs. Franklin listed out virtues and sought to accomplish each in a specific order. His notion of virtues differed, however, from the Puritans who believed that being close to God was most virtuous and focused on reading scripture and prayers instead of being good citizens.
These essay will outline some other reasons why is this issue important in our society. We all know that human life has an intrinsic value. Most of the traditions believe that man is created in God’s own image and therefore human life has an instructive dignity and is inviolable. Also, Christians believe that God is the one who gave us life and the only one who can take it away, but in a non- religious point of view this principle would be based on the dignity and sacredness of human life, independent from God’s existence. Euthanasia affects patients who are suffering from serious diseases like cancer or a person in coma.
Francis is a great model for modesty. He never fully believed in himself, Francis always relied on God to show him right from wrong and how to correctly lead his followers. He tried to live by the words of Mother Teresa, “One perfect soul can do more for God’s glory than a thousand ordinary souls.” Another example where Francis showed modesty is when he was recruited to become Father Guardian at a monastery in Trujillo. Though he refused, constantly saying someone else would be much better at leading the monastery, but Francis felt that God was telling him to go. So he followed God’s Word and became the Father Guardian.
The second horn says that since God is on the side of something therefore it is considered to be right or pious. Now, Socrates and Euthyphro was follower of the first horn of dilemma. They both thought that since something is pious therefore God loves it. It is evident from the statement, “Socrates proposes to amend the definition, and say that 'what all the gods love is pious, and what they all hate is impious.' To this Euthyphro agrees” (Plato, 2008).
He is half correct in his statement as a theist does not believe in the proofs individually, but finds enough evidence in them to form the belief that God does exist; He is the creator of the universe, and He is morally perfect. McCloskey touches on faith in his article. It is defined by Tillich: as the state of being ultimately concerned as claiming truth for concern, and is involving commitment, courage, and the taking of risk. Theists have faith in God, and treat Him as the most important person in their lives. To have faith in someone on past knowledge, according to McCloskey, is reasonable however; it is unreasonable to have faith in God as we have no past knowledge of God.
The interplay of faith and reason in the trial of Job is similar to that of Abraham (and the story of his son), as they are both put to trial in order to test their faithfulness to God. Even though this ‘test’ is beyond logical understanding, reason becomes overridden by their steadfast belief in God, meaning, although God presented challenges that seemed unreasonable to his believers, Abraham and Job both kept faith in Him, even if it meant losing their loved ones and properties, all for the sake of keeping God alive in their life. In detail, Job is a well-respected, god-fearing man who is very devout to his faith. There came a time when Satan approached God so that he may put Job to the test and prove to Him that his faithful servant was only loyal because of his abundance in material wealth. What seems incomprehensible to reason is why God, an almighty and good being, would let Satan freely oppress Job, an innocent man.
Gimpel is a man of tremendous character and unwavering spirituality. His character is exhibited when stays with Elka despite her adulterous and treacherous ways. Gimpel’s unconditional love for children that he did not father is possible because of his staunch religious beliefs. In Gimpel’s words, "In the first place, everything is possible, as it is written in the Wisdom of the Fathers (Singer)." It is evident that Gimpel chooses believe what people tell him because he has faith in them just as he has faith in God.
2:20-21) 2 Cares about people “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” (John 13:34) “Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself.” (Philippians 2:3) “In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation [judicial payment] for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” (1st John 4:10-11) “Nor
Apollo possessed jealousy and he felt like he must be the best like gods normally do, he couldn't be challenged and always be proud of his talents. However, Hephaestus would never do that as he was ashamed of himself, he would stay humble and thus he wouldn't be that cruel. In conlcusion, Apollo was more god -like than Hephaestus. He was more beautiful and his emotion towards being offended or how he felt of himself were certainly same as a god normally
