Diminishing Faith Elie Wiesel struggled with his faith due to his experience from the Holocaust in memoir, Night; Elie Wiesel shows his difficulty in maintaining his faith of a benevolent god in the face of extreme adversity. For the reader to comprehend the tribulation of keeping ones faith in the face of adversity, the reader must understand Jewish religious customs. In the memoir, Wiesel’s tells of his great commitment to the Jewish religion and of his thirst for greater knowledge of his religion, and of the wonderful almighty. Elie preformed all the traditional spiritual customs; of prayer and respecting the Sabbath, bur his faith is shaken by the darkness brought by the Holocaust. Elie’s belief that the Almighty is everywhere is slow diminished by the cruelty and horrors from the camps. Others in the camps tried to cling to God as their light. The holiday “Yom Kippur”, the Day of Atonement, would usually serve as a spiritual day of fasting as thanksgiving to the Almighty (Ellwood 246). Elie was filled with such hopelessness, that once strongly spiritual, god filled boy fades away. Others in the camp fought on whether or not to fast based whether they would starve, however they weren’t arguing over faith but of survival. Elie chooses not to fast, saying he “no longer accepted God’s silence” (Wiesel 69). Instead he ate and “turned that act into a symbol of rebellion, of protest against Him” (69). Elie was once a strong believer in his benevolent God, once believing in…

Life without hope in a dull frustrating world congeals the stuff of human existence…. Almost. To some, burn-lived-died is more than the plot of too many bad novelties, it dooms them, chaining their lives to a Maslowian fate. Others drown the raw truth in unrelenting labor, raucous revelry, sunlit spring breezes, cigarettes at noontime, or the bottle. Yet some find hope in this droll frustrating world, but they will not agree and cannot be sure of that hope. Or can they?
Once I could…

work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness, 6just as David also speaks of the blessing of the one to whom God counts righteousness apart from works:

8blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin."
9Is this blessing then only for the circumcised ,or also for the uncircumcised? We say that faith was counted to Abraham as righteousness. 10How then was…

Hawthorn takes the protagonist down a trail that ultimately ends with him doubting his puritan faith and constantly being suspicions of his neighbor's hypocrisy. By doing this Hawthorn is conveying…
ESSAY – GOOD FAITH BARGAINING

The Fair Work Act sought to restore collective bargaining in the Australian workplace relations system, including enhanced rights for union involvement and, most importantly, the good faith bargaining requirements.
