In reading "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" by Jules Verne, the last paragraph was very interesting to think about in Christian terms. This passage means is that if a person has a cold heart, but experienced something so powerful and spiritual that it has taught him or her about kindness, then he or she should be forgiven. Captain Nemo was a bit harsh and unloving, but after what he went through, he realized that he should be kinder to the world. Everyone can learn from this passage. It is explaining that everyone needs to be more loving and kind to all and not have to experience a traumatic situation to open the eyes to the Lord's word. He wants everyone to live a happy life and sometimes an eye-opening experience can leave scars, physical and emotional ones. The Lord wants everyone to have a joyous experience while the human bodies are here on the Earth and help many fellow Christians.
Everyone is a sinner, but if we bow down and ask for forgiveness the Lord will forgive the sins that have been committed. People shouldn't think so highly of themselves that they lose sight of what is really important, the Lords will. So in conclusion everyone should learn from past ancestors' mistakes and not make too many in this day and age.
