Faith In Uncle Tom's Cabin

Decent Essays
How life is different without faith? [HK]. It is a question that we as a Christian often wonder about the importance of faith gives us hopes in heaven and life [BRG]. Uncle Tom’s Cabin shows us how faith is very important for our hopes in daily life and how we act to our obstacles in life [TH]. The Christian characters in Uncle Tom’s Cabin use their faith to motivate others by having faith, to tell others Jesus Christ and put faith in him to go to heaven, to help others in hard times [OS].

Tom showed his strong faith as a concern to other people’s faith; he showed his concerns toward Augustine St. Clare and Legree, and motivates them for their doubts and actions [TS1]. After Eva’s death, St. Clare said to Tom that his life is like an empty

Clare and her servants [TS2]. On one Sunday evening, Tom and Eva were sitting on a mossy seat discussing about where heaven is [CE4]. On the discussion, Eva said “Uncle Tom, I’m going there” [E4]. Tom has taught Eva about the Bible enough that Eva felt that she has faith and very sure that she is going there, which tells us that faith changes Eva’s hope to put hope to the heaven [R4]. During Eva’s illness, she gathered the servants, and told them she is going to heaven; she also told them how to get to heaven [CE5]. She said “but, if you want to go there, you must not live idle, careless, thoughtless lives. You must be Christians" [E5]. Eva is trying to tell her concerns toward their soul to dwell in the heaven, that they can also go to heaven if they become a Christian and live as a Christian. In other words, she encourages them to be a Christian and have hope to go to heaven [R5]. When Eva asked St. Clare whether he is a Christian or not, St. Clare asked Eva back about being a Christian [CE6]. Eva answered “loving Christ most of all” [E6]. Eva’s answer shows St. Clare that his faith to Christ is the key to be in heaven. Eva is faithful enough that she becomes a spiritual guide to her own father [R6]. Just as having faith on Jesus Christ put us hope in going to heaven, so too faith gives us comfort by trusting in the Lord in going through life tribulations

    Jesus was born to Joseph and Mary because God needed to have us to be reminded of who and what we are here for and what God can do for us. So Jesus became a part of us and walked among us and taught us all about God’s word and what God would do for us and that if we only believed in Jesus then we would once again walk with God and have eternal life. Jesus’s identity is important to the Christian worldview because it let’s us know that we have a purpose and reminds us to believe in God and do good and believe in him.

    Rather than being a letter of rebuke or correction, Ephesians leans more on Paul’s prayer for the church as a whole. The letter seems to be directed not only at the Church of Ephesus, but rather the church as a community. Penned during one of Paul’s time of imprisonment, he strives to make the reader understand the need to further their relationship with Christ Jesus. He calls the reader to be strengthened in faith and understanding of God. Time after time he urges the reader to be filled with the Spirit of God, and in doing so how to be strengthened by it.…

    Paul’s final call of the church in Colossians 3:1-15 is witnessed in Colossians 3:14-15 which reads, “And above all these, put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.” Both love and thankfulness, but especially love, are some of Christ’s most prominent characteristics. 1 John 4:19 states, “We love because he first loved us.” (ESV 1 John 4:19) Again, we are taught to love because Jesus loves us. In loving one another we are being Christ like, because Christ himself loves us unconditionally.…
