    general application, but often narrow to describing a singular individual. Psalm 17:10 goes on to describe how the Antichrist attacks others. It all starts with an “unfeeling heart”. Psalm 36:1 “Transgression speaks to the ungodly within his heart. There is no fear of God in his eyes. For it flatters him in his own eyes, concerning the discovery of his iniquity and the hatred of it. The words of his mouth are wickedness and deceit; He has ceased to be wise and to do good. He plans wickedness upon his bed; He sets himself on a path that is not good; He does not despise evil.” Sin is a snare for those whose hearts do not fear the LORD.

Recall what I said, Trump = SIN. He is steeped in sin to the point that he can no longer see it in himself. Sin hardens the heart. Jesus speaks to this in Matt 13:15 when He quoted Isaiah, “For the heart of this people has become dull (or hardened), with their ears they scarcely hear, and they have closed their eyes, otherwise they would see with their eyes, hear with their ears, and understand with their heart and return, and I would heal them.” Notice the Psalm 36:3 above says, “He plans wickedness on his bed.” It come, then, as no surprise that some of the most vicious and disgusting things Trump says comes from his Twitter account. What might surprise many is…

  • Rhetorical Analysis Of Dr. Martin Luther King's Letter To Birmingham Jail

    valid. By calling them ‘fellow clergymen,’ he makes the connection that they are in fact equals, that they work in the same profession, and that they all share a common ground. At the beginning of the letter, he tells his “fellow clergymen” that he normally does not reply to his critics or even write at such length, but with nothing else to do during the confined period in jail, he would attempt to answer “sincere criticisms” coming from “men of genuine good will.” Even in providing background…

  • The Importance Of Eve On Adam And Eve

    When Satan set’s his eyes upon Adam and Eve, it is doubtful they he knew how easy it would be to corrupt their minds.

    self” in stoicism is the first step towards caring others. Because, as abovementioned, in caring of oneself correctly one can know how to care and treat others properly. This principle can apply to the state, which contains the largest amount of others (Foucault 199). This principle constructs the basis of feudalism: one must know his nature and act accordingly; in the position of the king, then one should care the state.
