Only then will they be forgiven. However, God did not take this action to be or become something of evil to those who were innocent in their wrong, He carried through this effort to purify the Earth of the corruption which was spreading throughout man. For he wants to correct the wrong and make man “Good”. Man was too spread-out, as well as corrupt, the only option left to God was to do as he did, flush man from the Earth and save those who he saw as worthy to re-establish Man. And so through this Chapter we see the vengeance and determination of God, to be right in being in such emotion, as His creation had become corrupt.
Russell had enough moral fiber to face the problem of a dying child head on instead of hiding behind the guise of God and “His” will. After hearing Koukl’s argument about reconciling evil, I’m beginning to think that true evil is ignorance. Not the privation of a God’s goodness, not the lack of “morality” or denying God, but ignorance to the thoughts feelings and beliefs of others; not only ignorance, but the casting aside and chastising of those values also. I won’t say all of Koukl’s arguments were wrong, to do so would sink to his level, but perhaps it would be in the best interest of his soul to stop being close minded to anything not related to God, lest it become more obvious how ill prepared his arguments really are.
God tells everyone to forgive those who had hurt them. Willingly forgiving Christians of their sins, and because He has forgiven Christians they are to forgive others. Although the world’s reasons to forgive other are valid, they are all but selfish reasons to take the initiative to forgive other people. God is an almighty and powerful God whom Christians are to fear. Although God loves all of his children, He could still use his power for bad but He chooses not to do so.

We're not feeding or clothing the homeless intentionally, we can't help if people dig through our trash. So, not throwing away anything "extra" is not going to turn the vagabonds of the world into a fine, upstanding, or hard-working citizen of America. Obviously, I completely disagree with Eighner's purpose in writing "Dumpster Diving". I think the whole thing is preposterous. The way he makes a general assumption about how everybody's is wasteful is pure ignorance.
Even simply put, because we created borders. I know well that I am no activist, I am no stakeholder in a peace talk, I am no victim of war, I am no pressure group that advocates for peace, I am no great thinker or philosopher or social or political theorist. I am an average teenager and this is a letter, an open letter to whomsoever it may concern: Peace is not an oxymoron. Please do not make it one. Peace is not a contradiction, wrapped in hopelessness, presented with exquisiteness.
Eveline worries about breaking her promise to her mother about staying home, since if she marri... ... middle of paper ... ...her husband she was able to close that part in her life and move on. These themes of these three stories are important because it shows the type of lives and people that the characters had in Dublin. At the end of each story, each character finds his or her own “light at the end of the tunnel,” which allowed them to try and start a new life with more change. It is important that each character is able to overcome the responsibilities and make it better in the end. Each person today still faces their own responsibility that can either be bad or good, which makes the characters relatable in that no one’s life is perfect.
“My food is not that of man; I do not destroy the lamb and the kid to glut my appetite; acorns and berries afford me sufficient nourishment.”(Pg 148). The Monster would not eat any living creatures because of moral reasons, as shown in the quote. Before the Monster has come into contact with any religion, he already knows how to discern between moral right and wrong. “I admired virtue and good feelings and loved the gentle manners and amiable qualities of my cottagers, but I was shut out from intercourse with them”(Pg 120). The Monster only wanted to be accepted and loved by society but knew that he was not like anyone else so he had to hide from society.
He thought his children not to fight physically because he believes it is not a resolution to the problem. Atticus himself always tries to solve problems logically. When Bob Ewell has spat on his face, he did not, for one-second think of raising his hand on the poorest men in living in Maycomb. He had the right to defend h...
