OKay, so the let’s go over the first option...


An epic hero must have at least one parent that is a god.


This statement is very false. Of course, it COULD  be a quality of an epic hero, but it’s NOT  a required quality.


Next option.


An epic hero must have no human frailties and flaws.


This option is also incorrect. There are many heros, real or fiction, that have many so-called "human frailties" or "human flaws." Even the epic hero's you read about in books or comics or see in movies have flaws. No matter what no one is perfect.


Next option.


An epic hero must be more courageous than the typical man.


This, however, is true. To be an epic hero, it is required to be more courageous than the average man. If they are not more courageous than the average man then they are not an epic hero. They’re probably just a hero or maybe even a man if they’re not more courageous.


( We’ll ignore the last option since we have clearly found the correct answer. )


This means that the answer is c )  An epic hero must be more courageous than the typical man.

The path to salvation lies in obedience to the church. c. God is able to save even the worst sinners from hell. d. The devil actively seeks to destroy human souls.

The correct answer is D. the devil actively seeks to destroy human souls.


In the story, Dr. Faustus sells his soul to the devil in return for all the knowledge in the world. Obviously, the option D fits this theme perfectly. The devil was alluring and offered Faustus everything he wanted - all he had to give him was his soul. Of course, that turned out to be a bad idea because God couldn't help him in the end and he ended up in Hell.

I need help putting together a thesis statement for, "A Good Man Is Hard To Find" by Flannery O'Connor. So far, the thesis statement I have is this: In the short story, “A Good Man Is Hard To Find”, the author Flannery O’Connor, will show you that no matter how respectful and nice you are to people like the grandmother, when it comes to devious and disrespectful just like the misfit, you always have second chance to make transformation. I need help with transforming it to sound better. I want to build it around Christianity because O'Connor always talked about murder and Christ. Could someone be generous enough to help me please! Thanks!

ADVISE : First off, never start your thesis statement off like " i'm going to tell you" or " In this." you want to grab the reader, and make the reader want to read more. You could start your thesis with a quote from O'Conner or a random quote about your subject. This tends to grab the reader, if they like the quote. You may also start your your thesis with a question that you may think people will have about the short story, or you had  while reading the short story, you MUST answer this question in your writing though. Secondly, try not to make your thesis so long, this may lead the reader to bordome, but also dot make your thesis to short

Before the Renaissance, virtually all dramas focused on religious themes because religion was such a major part of the daily lives of those who lived at that time—the medieval times/“dark” ages.
