Grade 8 English Lesson 86

Today I started reading A Tale of the Western Plains by G.A Henty. I also started learning how to write a storybook. Good writing is:

  • Easy to read and understand
  • Follows conventional grammar standards
  • Creative or entertaining to read

I also had to write a 1 to 2 page essay.

Today I wrote an essay on the following topic. Is a perfect society possible or even desirable? A perfect society isn’t possible, as everyone has sinned. From the moment Adam and Eve ate the fruit of knowledge, condemned themselves and all of their offspring to sin. Everyone is a descendant of Adam and Eve, which means we all sin. Also if we all descended from the same people, that means that there are no “higher races” and no “lower races.” Since no one is perfect, a whole bunch of people can’t be perfect. So now the question remains, do we desire a perfect society. Well I don’t know about you but I don’t want a perfect society without God. I’m not saying I wouldn’t want to end suffering and have everyone be happy. But without God there is no purpose to live. If we could accomplish a perfect society without God, then we wouldn’t need him, and everybody would forget about him. Imagine you’ve spent a a lot of time taking care of a pet, and when you’re done it doesn’t believe that you exist or it hates you. Nobody would want that. Yet God still loves us, and the least we can do is love him back. Do I want a world where everybody is perfect, and their creator is forgotten? No! How about a perfect society with God in the center of it? One already exists, it’s called heaven. Just know that we didn’t make it, God made it for those who believed that Jesus died for their sins.
