Is Shylock More Sinned Against Than Sinning?

- There are many sides to this argument. The first is that Shylock does not sin at all, the second is that all the characters sin as much as each other, the third that Shylock is the only one who sins, the fourth that they all sin, but Shylock sins the most making the above statement false, and the fifth way of arguing it is to agree with the statement. Shylock may sin when he makes the contract with Antonio saying that he must pay back the 3000D within 3months if he lends it to him, or he can take 1lb of flesh from his body, but it is not clear whether he wants to harm Antonio because he claims to want “Only friendship”....   [tags: Free Merchant of Venice Essays]

In a State of Sin

- These aforementioned verses deal with three different conditions of an individual’s unregenerate state before receiving salvation; one, lying to oneself that they are without sin when they are yet sinners.

These are a declaration in which one may perceive their state.
