Another point that makes a good teacher would be his/her patience.

Justice Proves Necessary in Order to Achieve Holiness

- The first two commandments given to Moses by God in Exodus establish adultery as a result of oppression. Since nothing in the world is God, all are thus creatures. But when one becomes oppressive they are not only disrespecting their neighbor, but also committing adultery by attempting to assume a role that belongs uniquely to God. Therefore if justice is defined by being in the right relationship with others, neither the bondage of the Israelites to Egypt nor the racial inequality endured by African Americans in the United States can allow for humanity to experience a sanctity relationship with God....   [tags: morality, justice, evil, freedom]

Video Games, Violence and Parenting

- The ignorance of people who argue against this shows their one-minded views on this topic. This leads to three obvious conclusions. One: Parents refuse to take responsibility to teach their children right from wrong. If a parent teaches them what is and what isn’t okay, then the majority of those kids are not going to grow up and think that it’s cool and awesome to run around imitating things they see on the T.v. or in video games.
