Oscar Cruz Jr. Cruz 1 BG Guttierez ENGL 2327 23 February, 2012 Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God In the story Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God in holds a sermon on how your life should be led to with several techniques he tries to grab your attention with his grace and how you would go to heaven. Not everybody believes in god but in my point of view I believe that with the will of the lord everything is possible. Jonathan Edwards throughout the readings tried to scare the readers on how god can do things to people or grasp their life in any part of their time. It shouldn’t be understood in that way because in the bible I reads that god will come for you at the time he is ready. There is no need to be scared to go to heaven because heaven is a better and more peaceful place.
And I was glad that Rabbi Eliahou should continue to look for his beloved son. And, in spite of myself, a prayer rose in my heart, to that God in whom I no longer believed. My God, Lord of the Universe, give me strength never to do what Rabbi Eliahou’s son has done.” From that point on, he made it his duty to take care of his father. So, what is love you ask? Love is many things that you can describe a thousand different ways.
But, God knows every thing, so even before we are tempted, God warns us. The people, hurts, situations, circumstances, we would avoid if we would just heed His way or His voice. In wanting to grow in God and fulfil Destiny It is so important to select people that will heighten your view for the positive, provoke you to strive for excellence, and help propel you to greatness. Proverb 11:14 says: Where there is no counsel the people fall; but in the

Everyman has turned his back on God and set his sights on things that are not deemed important at the time of reckoning. Death comes to order Everyman to his journey of reckoning, and Everyman wants to bring someone along. Now everyone else will begin to deceive Everyman. The second time we see deception in Everyman is when Everyman turns to his dearest friend, Fellowship for help. Fellowship sees Everyman troubled and informs them that he would be happy to help.
In Robert Pack’s poem, “An Echo Sonnet,” literary devices are used which gives meaning to the poem certainly the most bulging being that of an echoed voice. Throughout the sonnet, the echoes answers to the speaker’s questions serve as a religious meaning speaking to those who ask questions. The speaker begins to ask questions such as “must I master joy or grief?” and other questions that leads the audience/reader to believe that the narrator is confused as to what his purpose in life is. On the other hand, Pack adds the literary technique of an echoed voice that leads the way. By using this device, it seems as though the narrator is representative of most people who are not sure of their reason for life, and the voice is coming from a God-like figure.
With every opportunity of listening I will be mindful of creating a safe environment where clarity, understanding, and listening can take place effectively. More, important I should keep in mind how God listen to us. He listen to other with a love, compassion and caring heart. I want to do more listening and slow to speak. James 1:19 (KJV) says, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath.” Taking the correct actions when listening will allow me to mend broken relationship due to lack of communication or listening skills.
The protagonist begins to question the morals of the modern world; this is where the hero reaches his epiphany. The hero’s epiphany comes some time after the incident, when he has had to think and process what happened and the way he feels about it, he listens to the thoughts of others who tell him he ’did the proper thing, the best thing, by leaving the young man alone’ but he realizes that he should have helped the man in need even if it wasn’t the society norm as he states ‘Like so many things in life, I know now what I should have done then. I should have thrown caution to the winds and done the right thing. Not the big-city thing.’ He is deeply apologetic for his actions and makes a vow to change that in the future as he would not want the ones he loves to be treated that way in their time of need, ‘The thing I would want someone to do if they ever found my son crying in an elevator. I should have given him the opportunity to unload his sadness onto my
In this quote Ultima tells Antonio that it is up to him to figure out what he believes. Although it is likely for him to share similar beliefs to his parents as a child, when he reaches “manhood” he will need to make his own decisions. Ultima wants Antonio to be his own person and not follow everyone else. Later on when it is time for Antonio’s first communion he is filled with anticipation that his answers pertaining to the golden carp’s existence and life will be answered. He is in utter disbelief when nothing of the sort occurred and contemplated, “A thousand questions pushed through my mind, but the voice within me did not answer.
