In conclusion, “Preaching is divine activity wherein the word of God is proclaimed or announced on contemporary issues for and ultimate response to our God.” It is the seriousness of preaching that goes forth among God’s people, to invoke a call for a response to the good news of God. Understanding the meaning and task of preaching frees one to be used as a vessel that God uses to impart change into the lives of his people. It is God that does the work, it is not the works of my own.
“The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract…It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced (Lincoln, Abraham).” The pathos used was intended to make the Union citizens dedicated themselves towards reuniting under America for things that were taken for granted, such as, freedom, democracy, and “liberty and justice for all.” These ideas dated back to the Founding Fathers and already had a place within the American people. Restating these ideas gave Lincoln and the Union the support of the people needed to persevere through a dark moment in
Basically, he deserved the title of The Great Emancipator. There are some reasons to believe that Abraham Lincoln did not want the title of emancipator. However, he aimed that his main motive was to free the slaves forever. Thus, he used the phrase “Preserve the Union” in his speeches for the Civil War as a reason to cover his main motive which was to free the slaves. Abraham Lincoln showed great political and moral valiancy, he believed in freedom for all people, in any ethnic.
Lincoln’s optimistic tone encourages all Americans to put behind them the Civil War and progress forward as a united nation once more. President Lincoln calls to action all the peoples of America with sentences such as, “let us strive on to finish the work we are in” and “ to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace”. The tone that President Lincoln capitalizes on is purposefully optimistic because he hopes to end the war and move past the issue of slavery, among others, which has divided the nation, and he wishes to safeguard the nations reunification. Lincoln’s tone also has hortative sentences such as asking the American people to “strive”. President Lincoln also wishes to rid both sides of any grudges or rancor they may feel towards one another for the war by reflecting that “all sought to avert it” and by articulating, “Neither party expected for the war the magnitude or the duration which it…attained”.
As President, that is what he did. He used his incredible speech giving ability and made the people feel somewhat safe and that he was going to do what he deemed necessary to preserve the Union. Without Lincoln we all would be in a different position than we are currently in right now. Slavery is gone and if we keep arguing semantics about the the title in which we give the person who set the abolition of slavery into action, we are just demeaning a very important historical
The true nature of it is elusive and needs subtler net to catch the variations. Thus a detailed stylistic study of Ezekiel's poems reveals interesting features of his poetic language and style. Style is "a characteristic way of deploying the transformational apparatus of a language." An author's stylistic preferences are highly significant because, as Ohmann points out, they "reflect cognitive

U.S. History May 6, 2014 Jasmine Roque Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address On March 4, 1865, Abraham Lincoln delivered his second inaugural speech. Abraham Lincoln begins by addressing the nation on the ongoing civil war and his hopes on the nation uniting as a country again. Lincoln tells them “ The progress of our arms upon which all else chiefly depends, is as well known to the public as to myself; and it its, “ Lincoln is saying that he is equal to the public and that he has also felt the wars effect. I think the main reason why this speech was written was to start reconstruction. Since the Civil War just ended, now is the time to start reconstruction.
At a time when victory over the secessionists in the American Civil War was within sight and slavery had been effectively ended, Lincoln did not speak of triumph, but of loss, guilt and sin. Some see this speech as a defense of his pragmatic approach to Reconstruction, in which he sought to avoid harsh tre... ... middle of paper ... ... may speedily pass away." He wishes the war to be fought and won as quickly as possible. I believe this speech was successful in its intention. The rhetoric was clear and understandable, and it expressed Lincoln's values to the audience which approved greatly.
Wilson continues saying that the Untied States has no quarrel with Germany but merely wants to end the war and bring peace to the world. A peace without victory, that was Wilson’s goal. He believed that a peace can only be maintained if there is a partnership of democratic nations, that no autocratic government could be trusted to uphold its principles and “covenants.” Wilson believed that all people deserved to be free and that then and only then could peace be attained. He regretted entering America into WWI but knows that for the good of the world it had to have been done. Wilson was determined to bring peace and equality to the world so that all the nations would be peaceful, “so that she can do as God does.” Wilson was a very moral person and held his truths to be self-evident, he wanted to create a world of peace.
