    The plot was very weak, unfortunately. Essentially Batman has captured the 6 villains of Suicide Squad and they are placed in a secret prison away from the city. A government official wanted a team to be able to do her bidding if needed, therefore pushed a program to make these villains fight for the safety of humanity. The antagonist to the anti-hero story happens to be a witch whom is supposed to be a part of this Suicide Squad. She, alongside her brother, are trying to use human’s technology against them with their supernatural abilities. The antagonists barely have any screen time and are much underdeveloped. The biggest issue I had with the film is the time crunch to make it not much more than 2 hours, which it had a 2hr 10 minute run time. This would explain why the plot was the weakest part of the film. With so many characters with deep backgrounds, Ayer failed to cover them with enough depth to make us feel for them all. Characters like: Killer Croc, Captain Boomerang, Katana, and Slipnot were non-essential to the plot and should have been cut from the movie because they were just not done right. That could have opened up more space for the most missed character from the movie, the Joker. The Joker was a paramount character in the trailers, in which everyone was excited about Jared Leto’s role as this new almost mobster Joker. In the film, he had very little screen time and wasn’t that important to the plot, yet the trailers would have people perceive him as a main…

    including the fact that humans were created by God with the intention of remaining in that good “estate” and that the fallen state of humanity is the very reason why Christ died on the cross and sent the Holy Spirit to aid in sanctification. “Salvation by Faith” – In this sermon, Wesley first specifies that it is only by God’s grace that human beings can be saved and that the only way to tap into God’s grace or to gain God’s favor is to have true faith. This is not the faith of “heathens” or…

    Introduction There are various perceptions of salvation; including what it is and how it can be attained.

    Essay On Total Depravity

    This doctrinal belief comes from the Wesleyan tradition. Christian perfection means that all Christians have the ability to live perfect lives, free of sin. I believe humans, because they were given free will, can choose to not sin and live a perfect life. This is nearly impossible for humans, alone, to do because of the corruption of our lives. Due to the fact that we have lived our lives consistently surrounded with sin, it is extremely difficult to fully resist sin. In the same way Jesus was…

    from a pen which has become virtually useless, thanks to its dried contents. My mind works in greyscale, doomed to the arbitrary, as questions which plague the universe with meaning hover barely beyond my reach. For if we neglect issues greater than this world, a part of us will die, and we spend our existence on this revolving globe as a shell, grey and faded as our thread runs out. Therefore, an ongoing struggle to think and live with meaning has become a defining part of me, shaping my…

    The salvation process is usually facilitated by a person of extreme might, spiritual in some cases. For instance, according to the narrative of Mary Rowlandson- Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson, it is God who salvaged her from the captivity chains of her Indian enemy (Gleason). Suffering is also one of the elements of most captivity narratives. The captives are usually exploited in all human aspects. They may be forced to do hard labor, beaten up for fun, and…

    I often used to focus so much on myself when I shared my testimony, but over the past year I started to question why I did this. Over the years I have come to learn that my testimony is not about myself, but rather it testifies about the love, power and grace of the One who saved me, Jesus Christ. My salvation is fully reliant on Jesus and nothing I have done. I was raised by two Christian parents, who deeply love the Lord. This was truly a blessing in my life, as I was exposed to the Bible and…

    Most of us just run…until we are swallowed by a whale. Then we cannot run and have to turn to our Maker whom we rejected. Would it not have been easier to just turn around before?? Thankfully, G-d gives us, like Jonah, another chance. For we know that, “sin’s payment is death, but G-d’s gracious gift is eternal life in Messiah Yeshua our L-rd” (Romans 6:23, TLV). It is then time to face our sin. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from…

    Hands of an Angry God is a sermon that was given on the eighth of July in the year 1741. This sermon was preached to a congregation in Northampton, Massachusetts. Although this particular sermon seems to have a dark and gloomy idea and perception of religion, it left many in tears and wanting to hear more. The purpose of Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God was to inform and persuade the people. Edwards wanted to show them that there was absolutely no hope of salvation found outside of Jesus…

    his suffering which served as the inspiration for her “Revelations of Divine Love”. Within these visions, Julian receives a divine intercession from Christ concerning the basis and context of sin. Instead of viewing the tragic state of Norwich as a form of punishment for human sin, Julian reconstructed the nature of sin almost as an accidental, yet essential, byproduct of an honorable course of human action. According to Julian, sin and hell are essentially “no-thing” or an “unreality” that is…
