God forgives us as Christians, as King David wa... ... middle of paper ... ... as to allow sin to be a part of their lives, but they are deceived. Jesus has made it very clear, “I am the way, the truth and the light.” He also tells us “no one gets to the father except through me”. This cannot be made any clearer. With the Holy Spirit in charge and with moral authority over our lives, we must remember it is by the grace of God that our lives are changed and we are not on our own, nor do we own this body, it is on loan from God. He will take care of us.
Being charged with adult sentences is a very harsh punishment considering their age. Andrew Medina was fifteen when he got sentenced to life without parole because of a murder that he possibly did not commit. Officers also alleged that he was part of a gang and sent him to spend the rest of his life in a very strict prison. Trevor Jones also got sentenced to life without parole at the age of seventeen because of reckless manslaughter. Even though it was an accident, the victim’s death occurred while Trevor intended armed robbery and was accused of felony murder and will spend the rest of his life in prison.
This was looked up to in a time when the government and banks were the two evil forces. During his short life Dillinger robbed countless banks and killed an estimated seventeen men.

Oedipus and his family take action to ensure the prophecy of him killing his father and sleeping with his mother would not come true. The play is saturated with irony. Oedipus steers himself directly into his fate after trying to avoid it for most of his life. While fate played a small role in spurring Oedipus' actions, he ultimately brought his ruin upon himself.
A Clockwork Orange In "A Clockwork Orange" by Anthony Burgess, the main charater is Alex. He is a teenager and he lives with his parent. He is the leader of a gang that consists of his friends Pete, Dim, Georgie and of course him self. It´s a very violent gang, and they enjoy to beat up and to rape other people. Alex is a well known kriminal by the police, but he hasn´t been to prison yet.
An antichrist might be an individual who completely follows God all the time, but does not accept Jesus as Christ because they have been misled. When a soul has been misled the Christian community should not fear and treat the person as if they were the devil, but instead the Christian community as suggested by David Jackman, needs to hear God’s truth. “Historically this has provided the Christian church with motivation for mission” (70). This passage tells us the belief systems that have been crafted through the schism, may have some truth in their teachings. Christians do not even need to reintroduce “the appalling horrors of the Crusaders” (Jackman, 70) by trying to abolish anyone who goes against God.
He is offered the opportunity to participate in an experimental procedure that it is believed will cure him of his violent behavior and his sentence is reduced (82). When he is released, Alex realizes that the treatment has rendered him effectively unable to make his own decisions about whether to do the right or the wrong thing as well as sucking pleasure out of every day things he used to enjoy such as music and art (156). Alex finds himself at the mercy of a man he had crossed in the past (167) and attempts to commit suicide (169). In the original British edition of the book, the final chapter reveals that after waking up in the hospital, Alex's went on to finally grow up and settle down, however in the first published version to reach America this final 21st chapter was left out so that the novel ended with the failing of the conditioning and Alex returning to his old ways (Jarvis). A document was recovered from 1961, a year before A Clockwork Orange was first
This goes on until eventually Alex’s Droogs betray him and Alex ends up going to jail. After two years in, Jail Alex thinks he finds a “Get out of Jail Free” card, when in reality he is used as a guinea pig in what is called Ludovico’s Technique. During this time he is forced to watch horrific killings and raping’s with his favorite Beethoven symphony playing in the background
Alex is then taken under the wing of a writer who is fighting the oppressive government. The writer greatly publicizes the oppressive rehabilitation the state put Alex through. But Alex is still tormented by his lack of choice, so tormented, that he even attempts suicide. While Alex is in the hospital following his suicide attempt, the tragedy of his oppression is highly publicized, in an attempt to stop public criticism, the state "fixed Alex." He once again has freedom of choice.
Alex is driven to attempt suicide from this defect because he is locked within a chamber playing this song and does not accomplish his task. He is hospitalized and returns to his “ultra-violent” self while the inhumane treatment does not work because it does not even give people a choice about being violent. While Alex helps to present the theme, two different outcomes are formed. First, Alex goes through a great change from being “ultra- violent” to becoming Lamb-chop and then back to being “ultra-violent”. Second, the theme defines the major conflict of the story.
