Freedom or Coercion .The use of coercion is the means by which a person or group of people impose their will upon another or others.This form of coercion is compatible with freedom, because it is based on mutual consent with full knowledge of the situation.The famous fabulist, Aesop once said, “He that always gives way to others will end in having no principles of his own.” This statement truly shows what coercion means and what it can cause in a person’s life.The solution for the individual is to reject the use of coercion, prevent yourself from being coerced, and withdraw your support from coercers; the means for doing this is called freedom.

This verse says, “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’” Although we may go through struggles and the feeling that we are being deceived by the world, we have God’s grace that allows us to keep moving towards the ultimate goal of spiritual freedom.Step three to spiritual freedom is to choose to forgive others.Neil Anderson’s approach to spiritual freedom has various strengths.Step six and seven allow the person to feel freedom from the bondage by submitting to God through confession of sin and repentance and then to count your blessing rather than the curses on your life (Anderson, 2000).It allows me to see that everyone has a process to take, but the end result can be freedom from...

In the end, the one significant similarity the North and the South had was that they were Americans fighting for their liberties and what they believed in.While both Northerners and Southerners believed they fought against tyranny and oppression, Northerners focused on the oppression of slaves and the restoration of the union, while Southerners focused on defending their right to self-govern.The Civil War gave back America’s title as “a country that fights for freedom,” a title that America previously claimed to be in its constitution.I mean, that’s all we want.The Frenchman may fight for France, but the American fights for mankind, for freedom; for the people, not the land.” (27) .

Paine was able to use several aphorisms, ethos, pathos, and logs to accentuate the idea that with sacrifice, determination, and faith, that they would come out of the battle victorious.Paine also repeats this idea, with the use of another aphorism in the successive clause, saying, “Heaven knows how to set a proper place upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated”, which he uses to stress the idea that sacrifices will be necessary in order to obtain the “celestial and heavenly”, feeling of freedom.As George Washington was preparing his soldiers to embark on what would eventually be the decisive win that America desperately needed, he read aloud, “ The Crisis”, by Thomas...
