Various religions and the secular world continually distort how God views repentance. They repeatedly attempt to twist the concept into a scary experience and make us believe that the more we have sinned, the harsher God will punish us. Our actions may demand legal accountability, but God’s ultimate wrath is reserved for those who do not accept Christ. Satan wants us to believe that God is waiting for us to approach Him like a cowering dog so He can exert a great rage on us. Satan wants us to believe that repentance is about feeling guilt and shame and there are dire consequences awaiting us.
The things people were doing and being unsaved was going to send them straight to hell because they know not heading in the right direction. The destruction on earth will slip and fall one day like many great empire has done. Going through storms and fire in life to get to the obstacle that will come in the way so that will be defeat as well when going to make a better person. To be selfish and foolish is not a wise thing, because to become a wise man must follow the leader. Trust the leader that everything will be ok and they will have the best interest at heart.
In John Milton's Paradise Lost, Satan may be considered a hero by some readers, because he struggles to overcome his own doubts and weaknesses and accomplishes his goal of corrupting mankind. This goal, however, is evil, and proves that Satan is unworthy to hold the title of “hero”. According to Wikipedia, a hero is a person “who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, displays courage and the will for self-sacrifice—that is, heroism—for some greater good of all humanity.” He must always be willing to show forgiveness, humility, and selflessness so that he may better serve others. Satan, however, did not display these good traits, and wished to act against God. He was vengeful, arrogant, and prideful throughout the epic, and did not show any virtue in his actions.
However, the interference of the government and F.Alexander’s interference with Alex’s moral choice ultimately drove him to attempt suicide to escape the evil ways they chose for reform. Moral choice can lead to violence, but without the risks, there would be nothing for humanity to choose. The government and F.Alexander’s faction control Alex’s free will to justify their own political agenda. They control his ability to choose without realizing that interfering with humanity’s ability to exercise free will is evil. Both the government and F.Alexander’s faction claim to be “the good guys” when they are the true faces of pure evil.
I also believe that other peoples bad choices affect everybody. I think that there is a ripple effect that happens when evil is present. I feel that bad things can happen to good people because of others poor choices in life. I also think that when a person has a strong personal relationship with God the devil tries to interfere. In the book of Job, God allowed Satan to do everything he wanted to Job except kill him.
Satan wants to divert our attention away from God and onto ourselves. He has always been envious of the praise, adoration and honor and love that God receives from his church. Satan would rather that we sulk and pout instead of “forget about ourselves and concentrate on Him and worship Him”. I have found that this is one of the many the keys to gaining spiritual victory. By “silencing the enemy” in our lives, we can remove strongholds that Satan has set up in our minds simply by singing the praises of God and walking in the spirit.
But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again… (Luke 6:27-35). Prospero’s conduct from the moment the play begins seems to contradict the basic lessons of Christian forgiveness. Prospero’s enemies are within his grasp and Prospero seizes the opportunity for revenge. “Desire for vengeance has apparently lain dormant in Prospero through the years of banishment, and now, with the sudden advent of his foes, the great wrong of twelve years before is stirringly present again, arousing the passions and stimulating the will to action” (Davidson 225). Though Prospero does not intend to harm anyone and he asks his servant, "But are they, Ariel, safe?"
The Lake of Fire has been a theological topic of great controversy. Several cults reject the doctrine of eternal punishment in the Lake of Fire, instead they assert that the place is purely symbolic in nature, and are adamant that one should not take this teaching literally. However, any good student of the Bible knows that although there is much figurative language throughout the Scriptures, he should always interpret the Bible in the literal sense. Therefore, the believer of God’s Word should consider the Lake of Fire a literal place of torment. The Bible is clear that a place of torment does exist, and that it is a place where many real people will meet their final fate.
This is further exemplified by the Montresor family motto, “nemo me impune lacessit,” which translates to, “no one dare attack me with impunity.” Here lies the main reason for Montres... ... middle of paper ... ...s story there are many different themes, the one which stands on its own is revenge. The need for revenge is what consumed Montresor to the point of insanity. The method by which he obtained vengeance was brilliant, yet horrific. However, the perfection of the plan’s execution could not prevent his feelings of pity once Fortunato’s spirit had been broken. It can be seen from this story that revenge, though often a tempting solution, is never the best one.
Although Chillingworth attaches like a “leech” (75) to Dimmesdale and wants more “revenge than any mortal had ever wreaked upon an enemy” (145), Chillingworth’s extreme desire for vengeance is rooted in his extreme love for Hester and therefore his actions are vindicated. Chillingworth is “most deeply and irreparably injured” (77) from Hester’s act of adultery and “lived in vain” (77). However, Chillingworth conceals the fact that he is Hest... ... middle of paper ... ... does not truly love Hester and Pearl since he causes them great suffering by selfishly concealing his sin to the community while they take the punishment. Additionally, the reader perceives Chillingworth as evil for seeking revenge when in reality he goes to extreme depths to demonstrate his love for Hester. On the other hand, Dimmesdale loves Hester and Pearl but because he is selfish and a coward he does not admit his sin of adultery to the community and as a result of his feebleness his love is insincere and devious.
