You cannot serve both God and money.” Simply said, serving anyone or anything but God is bad news. Jesus served and loved those who mocked him, scorned Him and even those who screamed for Him to be crucified. He also loves us even though we go about living life ignoring what God would have us to do. He went to the cross and died for all of us. That’s true selflessness.
However, time and time again we see man rejecting God, and in this passage that is again what we see happening. Jesus carried our burdens and yet we scorned and mocked him. This passage truly displays the hatred that dwells within man. Humanity had no reason to hate Jesus, yet the hatred of the Pharisees was able to fill all the people with such despise that they would cheer for his death. This passage also displays God’s unconditional grace.
The film commence on the prophecy, “but he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5). The Garden of Gethsemane is the place we see as the movie first bring into being. As we watch this dark scene take place we can assume Jesus is praying or that Jesus is talking to himself encouraging himself to face what is about to happen. Jesus is aware of everything that is going to take place, but we have to realize that he is in human form now. We as humans can in spite of everything develop agony as we walk with Christ.
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.

People who aren't spiritual and don't understand the spirit cannot receive the truths from Gods spirit. Jesus was abused, laughed at, and mocked. He suffered pain and humiliation, at the same time he submitted his fathers will all because he knew that the reward was going to be great. If you ask for help, he will help you.
I learned this the hard way. Part One Jesus, God’s only Son, paid the penalty for the sins of the whole world, including yours and mine. My heart broke when I had learned what Jesus had done for people who had beaten and scorned him. Even as his wrist and ankles were being nailed to the cross he cried out to God “Father... ... middle of paper ... ... to live by if I ever get lost. “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true” (Revelation 21:1-5).
Otherwise, in times of happiness and rejoicing, they worship their one, almighty, Christian God. When Grendel is attacking Herot, and its people think they are in their greatest danger, the people of Herot "sacrificed to the old stone gods / Made heathen vows / hoping for Hell's Support, the Devil's guidance in driving their affliction off." (175-178). With the use of the word "old" in this section, it can be inferred that the stone gods are things of the past. The rest of the passage shows that it was because of the doubt and fear, instilled in the people by Grendel, that the people of Herot regressed back to their old gods.
A conscious was God given meaning that there for Dimmesdale is constantly feeling bad begging for forgiveness from God. God is very forgiving and it is written that Jesus died on the cross to cleanse us of our sins. My interpretation of this means to me that Dimmesdale repenting with his whole heart will be forgiven. If one is inline with God I feel that they are redeemed. There are cases in the bible where it says if one is to sin against the people or the church then he must confess in front of those he
The tone of the author in this poem changes throughout the events that occur in the poem. For instance, when Jesus is being crucified, the author uses a lot of negative tone words, such as; mocked, malice, cruel, and dire. The use of these words communicates the sorrow and mourning of the scene in which the Lord is suffering and dying upon the cross. It also indicates the humiliation of both Jesus and the cross during this part of the poem. Later on, the cross is exalted and the tone changes becoming more positive.
The purpose of this film, I believe, was to show that capital punishment is not right in all circumstances, but the redemption and preservation of the human soul being better. Tim Robbins tried to show how most people and even more accurate, Christian people tend to always want vengeance for a crime. Most of them have a line from the old testament committed to memory, “An eye for an eye,” is what they always want to say. But it really confuses me. To me that saying is not clear, if you think about it, i... ... middle of paper ... ...n church.
