What Is The True Image (The Chrysalids) Essay, Research Paper
What is the True Image of God?
Do you believe that God wants the best for his people? Do you believe people should use their talents to their fullest potential? Finally do you wish to live in a backward society? The answers to all these questions are obvious! We all wish to make God happy by using our talents to provide a forward thinking society. If this is the case then you must acquit my clients, Sally and Katherine. They should not be discriminated against because of their special abilities; rather they should be encouraged to use their talents to help society advance. We must leave the judging to God, and try to gain the kingdom of heaven. Who are we to determine whom the true image is?
If you believed that you had a harmless but helpful talent which was not of the true image of God, would you use it? Would you like to be discriminated or even sentenced to death because of the talent that God gave you? God wants the best for us and He does so by giving us different talents that can be used in positive ways. My clients’ telepathic abilities can be used in many positive ways to make our world a better place and more advanced. For example, they can transport messages halfway across the world within 2 minutes, rather than taking days, weeks or maybe even months. By doing so they save us a great deal of
time and money. All of you probably knew that from before but were afraid of them turning against you. As Michael told David, Rosalind and Petra, “They are afraid of us What they’ve seen is that we could be a real danger to them They see it as a matter of survival.” (Wyndham.132). Why not work with them instead of against them and lose the feeling of danger inside us? Why not let them go and save yourselves all the trouble? Besides before you ever knew about their ability, nobody was hurt and nothing bad happened to anyone. If they were evil and a danger to us, would they have not destroyed us already? Did they even try to? Why not give them a chance to live and use their telepathic powers? Why not work with them and allow them to improve our society? With their harmless powers, we can step up to the next level and be one of the most advanced countries in the world. I ask that you give my clients a chance to experience and use their harmless powers with God’s help.
If you have sinned or done something wrong, who do you think should judge you? Who should tell you whether you are right or wrong! Last but not least, who should tell you if you are the true image or whether you are going to heaven or not? All these three questions lead to one answer! GOD! God is the key to everything. He is the one who guides us, loves us and judges us. Who are we to judge these two young girls? They have done no harm to us! The Holy Bible say, “Judge not, that you be not judged.” (Matthew 7:1). You always talk about how everyone should be the true image of God. If God Himself says do not judge and you still do it so therefore you are not of the true image of God.
You are all hypocrites. You tell everyone that they must be like the true image, when you yourselves are not. You call yourself the true image? You say you are religious and know the word of God? You are all wrong! You have all sinned and made all of Waknuk sin as well. As God said,
But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,
it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck,
and he were drowned in the depth of sea.
All of you that have judged and sinned will be judged and punished by God Himself. Why not let this go before it is too late! Just leave all the judging to God! If you are right then you shall receive the kingdom of heaven, but if not, you must suffer the consequences.
How does one get into the kingdom of heaven? How does one gain the joyful eternal life with God? Who is worthy enough to enter heaven? Must a person have a certain amount of fingers and toes? Must they be a certain height and weight? Must they be a certain color? Maybe according to your definition of man. David told me that right after he met Sophie and saw her extra toe, that is all that was running through his head. The definition of man according to all of you is:
each leg shall be jointed twice and have one foot, and each foot five toes, and each toe shall end with a flat nail and any creature that shall seem to be human but is not formed thus is not human It is a blasphemy against the true Image of God, and hateful in the sight of God.
Is this definition actually true? Not according to the Holy Bible; the real Bible. It tells us, “But I say to you, love your enemies ” (Matthew 5:44). Even if your
enemies have an extra arm, toe or leg, you should still love them! Besides when you die which part of you goes to heaven and which part stays behind on earth? Does not your soul and spirit go up to heaven and your body stays on earth? Our bodies are made out of dust! It came out of dust and when we die it will return to the dust it came from, and the spirit will go to either heaven or hell. Even the Bible tells us so. It says, “Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it.” (Ecclesiastics 12:7). Therefore why are you so worried about a person having an extra toe or an extra finger! Do these things really matter? You should worry about yourselves and whether your souls are clean enough to enter the kingdom of heaven. You must not try and get others to be like the true image and make sure that they are good! You must make sure that you are good and clean first. Cleanse your souls and forget about the image of the body.
In the Bible it is suggested that Adam and Eve were banished from the garden of Eden because they ate from the Tree of Knowledge. They wished to be equal to God. Simply put, they presumed they could fulfill God’s role. This is what you are doing now! You presume that you can determine what is the true image of God and we know only God can fulfill this purpose. Therefore, you must stop judging before you, like Adam and Eve, are banished from God’s sight.
