  • Abelard And Heloises Relationship
    1,128 words
    Saint Augustine believes that love is triggered by the desire to reach the beauty, truth, and good of God. Yet, it must be recognized that God is the Life of the life of my soul and that He created the form and spirit of the human body. Consequently, God assigned its own place and its own function (Augustine 213) for the body and the soul, and using the senses for enjoyment rather than for the objective of further glorifying God would be considered sinful since it is a distortion of love. It is ...
  • Paul's Presentation Of Love

As the Bible verse at the beginning suggests, this poem is about God's prerogative where heaven is concerned; in other words, how God's grace is completely necessary...

I don? t believe that someone can be in love with something, if he or she doesn? t understand what love is.? I was not yet in love, but I was in love with love, and from the very depth of my need hated myself for not more keenly feeling the need.? (pg. 35) How can Augustine hate himself if he doesn? t know what ...
  • Bradstreet's Upon The Burning Of Our House
    837 words
    In the early seventeenth century the one and only thing that concerned the Puritan's was their status with God. No matter what they did it was in order to please Him. Their reverence to God was everything to them. They modeled their community as a patriarchal community. This meant that the father or husband was the head of the household, just as God was head of the church. They also believed that the leader of the community should be the leader of their church. The puritan's took the Word of God...
