Kyle Colyn Professor De Smith Core 180 12-13-16 A World of Sin Reading imaginative literature helps one to explore human nature while keeping their Christian faith in mind. “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”, “Revelation”, “Pitcher’s Hands”, and “What We Talk about When We Talk about Love” are all stories that reflect upon the values of human nature. Diving into these novels and short stories, I was able to explore different aspects of human nature through a Christian perspective. Schaap’s “Pitcher’s Hands” tells us a lot about our sinful human nature as a whole. All too often we are motivated by our own selfish desires. Our selfish desires lead us astray from our morals and from what the Bible teaches us. Curt is a prime example in this short story of someone that allows his own personal desires to get in the way of what he knows is the right thing to do. Curt wanted to have sex with his beautiful girlfriend very badly which caused him to not even consider his Christian faith and values in that moment. “He wanted to go on, he knew, like nothing else, and so did she, he thought, and he didn’t know exactly how to say to the Lord that he was wrong in wanting something so badly (Schaap 8).” When we believe one thing and behave a different way, we fall away from the morals that guide us in our lives. Both Curt and Mel decided to go to the pastor for some advice on their situation. The pastor said, “You made a mistake. So do I. We all do. That’s what being human is all about. That’s why we need Christ (Schaap 9).”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
