That poor soul will turn away defeated, however God will not leave him nor forsake him, God is married to the backslider, (Jerimiah 3: 14). This one scripture reassured me of my salvation, and I share it with all believers who may doubt their salvation (1John 1:9) which lets me know God forgives us, (1) It tells us to confess our sins, (2) God states that he is faithful and just; and will forgive us - (3) The next verse sums it up for all believers; I will cleanse you from all unrighteousness. All believers ask for wisdom if needed; however according to the word of God we are heaven-bound. God is Almighty, and his thoughts are not his thoughts (Isaiah 55:8), remember Satan is a liar and he will distort the word, just like he did in the Garden of Eden. Satan knows his time is short and the bible speaks of a falling away in end times.

That we are all sinners and Christ came into the world to forgive our sins. Another example is second Corinthians chapter five. It says “God made Him who had no sin to be sin, or be a sin offering for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God.” Have you ever heard the Ten Commandments? If not, here they
With reference to holy books, example; the Bible, Quran, and others,there are rules to live by written in words. These rules would be utterly useless without persons in the belief to follow in actions or, more so, to carry out the religious act. Les Murray in his poem, “ Poetry and Religion”, is trying to make readers aware of the relationship between poetry and religion. He uses different scenarios to make it clear to readers, which the literary device, personification is used a number of times. A great similarity in poetry and religion is the repetition of love, ‘ Full religion is the large poem
They wrote about meaninglessness of life, juxtaposing this with the intensity of experience itself. The tone was often melancholic and the context urban. The poetry of the pre-war years, by contrast, was pastoral, romantic and patriotic, until the horror and chaos of the First World War inspired verse that was notable for its biting impact and its immediacy. Post-war poets such as T.S.Eliot led the Modernist movement with its emphasis on experimentation and the impersonality of the artist. Modernists consciously moved away from the traditional structures, conventional literary diction, and from the established values of artistic practice.
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

Voltaire on Religious Tolerance During the age of Enlightenment many people, especially those belonging to the middle class, began writing against the way society lived. Many people also wrote against the church and the way the church wanted to run things. Voltaire always spoke against the church but he also believed in religious tolerance because in the end he was raised with religious beliefs that could not be forgotten. Just like John Huss and Martin Luther, Voltaire received punishment for trying to unmask the church although what they spoke the truth. This is why I believe he started this piece talking about an Irish priest who wrote a pamphlet on religious tolerance.
He hated barbaric waste and destruction.’ Yeats portrayed this disjunction in the society in his verses through the use of the myths. He effectively uses the structure and the ability of the myths to change in the socio-cultural contexts to question the preconceived notion about revolution and the association of divinity with the fight for Motherland. Yeats tries to recreate the past through the myths and legend of the people which would have still resonated in the memories and beliefs of the people. They had a ‘direct ancestral magic’ for him. This paper aims to look at the use of myths in three of the Yeats’s poems – “The Second Coming”, “No Second Troy” and “Leda and the Swan”.
Special claims for Poetry as made by Sir Philip Sidney in his 'Defence of Poetry' Sidney made some special claims for poetry. These claims were based on poetry's divine origin, its prophetic nature, its cultural and social value, its universal appeal, its elevating power and its alluring and attractive methods of making an appeal.

They did not realize the truth that the poets had been the light bringers to the ignorant and that all sciences and philosophies and histories developed with the help of poets.
