o Courtesy – is the son of Legality and is a hypocrite. Although he politely speaks of good, he does not follow what is right. Samuel Lu Our best efforts to abide by the law will never save us. While we may be a good person by our own estimation, if we die as such, our state should be the most fearful. Mercy`s admirers, while pilgrims stay in the Beau Palais. To remove his burden, Christian tries to climb the mountain of legalism. Worldly sage: Why dwells in your village (the village is called morality) a gentleman whose name is legality, a very reasonable man (and a man of a very good name) who has the ability to help men with burdens like yours from their shoulders; Yes, as far as I know, he has done a lot of good in this way: yes, and in addition, he has the ability to heal those who are a little crazy in their minds with their burdens. For him, as I said, you can go and be helped now. His house is not quite a mile from this place; and if he should not be himself at home, he has for his son a handsome young man, whose name is courtesy, who can do it (to speak of it) as the old gentleman himself: there, I say, you may be freed from the burden, and if you are not inclined to return to your old home, for I will not desire thee; You can send your wife and children to this village, where the houses are now empty, one of which you can get at reasonable prices: supplies are also cheap and good, and what makes your life all the happier is to be sure that you will live there as honest neighbors, in credit and good fashion. The law is supposed to convince us of sin, but it is not meant to save us from it, nor is it able to do so. Many have not realized that the law cannot be respected, no matter how many times they try to respect it.
Galatians III 21-22 tells us: “If there had been a law that could have given life, true righteousness would have been through the law. But Scripture has bound everyone to sin. The citizens of morality turn to Mr. Legality to appease their consciences. They cling to an outward observance of the law, to a righteousness of works that constantly strives to prevail over all that is evil by good. If legality is not at home (i.e. moral laws are not respected in today`s culture), then politeness will suffice. Just try to get along with people, act with decency and kindness towards your fellow human beings and again, everything will be fine. Bunyan describes his own stay in this village: o legality – is a man who solves his problem by law and his name means respect for the law. The good news is that God never expected us to earn our own righteousness. On the contrary, He offers us His righteousness as a free gift. One of the witnesses testifying against Faithful at his trial at Vanity-Fair.
Demas operates the silver mine on the hillside of Lucre. He lies to Christian and Hopeful and tries to dissuade them from their way to get money. Mr. Grand-Coeur is one of the servants of the interpreter who is sent to guide Christiana and her companions on their pilgrimage. It represents the pastor of a church. Without his unwavering encouragement, guidance, and protection, the group of pilgrims of the second part would not have reached the city of Zion. In his letter to the Colossians, the apostle Paul asked them a question similar to that of the Christian evangelist: one of the damsels of the beautiful palace. She interviews Christiana`s sons and is impressed by their knowledge of their faith. The Law stands before the pilgrim and reminds him that the burden of sin rests on his shoulders and is unbearably heavy.
The pilgrim is then shown two ways to get rid of him. The first method is for him or her to begin to obey the law God has given. After despairing of redemption, he wallowed in the quagmire of Discouragement for a while, but eventually realized he had to move on. So he began to strive to keep the law on his own. Copy and paste the following code into your website. “Didn`t I show you the way to the small door of the wicket?” This refuge is the village of morality. The village of morality represents that great crowd of people who try to avoid the appearance of evil and practice good, without any fear of God or judgment. They hope, by being good people and doing good things, that everything will be fine in the end. They keep the law outwardly in the eyes of the people and can say with the rich young ruler, “Master, I have kept all these things of my youth” (Mark 10:20).
The world`s advice to Christians is essentially to be a good person, and everything will be fine. Let us avoid the infernal lie that tells us that man can solve his own problems, that striving to do good can remove the guilt of sin. Only the cross, only the shed blood of Christ, can bring peace and atone for sin (Colossians 1:20). Christian will soon learn that it is indeed dangerous to stray from the Way of the Cross. Secret is a messenger from heaven who comes to Christiana. He brings the certificate of his choice in the form of a letter and a message that God forgives and wants Christiana to come to him. The worldly sage associates with his name as someone who feels very experienced on earth, someone who knows good things well. The name is actually an ironic name, where what the wise man thinks is right actually appeals only to the earthly and sinful side of human nature, the things that are actually right are not the things that human nature would think are right, but what God says is appropriate.
While the law is supposed to be respected, we are not the ones who can do it. “Are you not the man I found weeping without the walls of the city of destruction?” Giant Despair, who imprisons Christian and Hopeful in Doubting Castle, represents the temptation of despair. Its relative size is indicative of the magnitude and severity of the temptation of despair. Some of the obstacles Christians face are external (such as religious persecution), while others, such as its despair, are internal. The guardian of the Beau Palais, the second bastion of aid on Christian`s journey, is vigilant. The problem of dependence on our own justice Christiana and Christian`s eldest son. He marries Mercy. “Is this the happiness you`ve been talking about all along?” asks Pliant angrily. “If we have such a bad speed on our first departure, what can we expect when this and that end of our journey is over.” o Courtesy, which refers to politeness and form, represents hypocrisy, shows kindness and sincerity outwardly, but can not really help. As the son of legality in the progress of the pilgrimage, politeness is like his father, who is said to be able to lighten the burdens of a pilgrim when in reality he can do nothing about it. Joshua Ma the interpreter is an important figure for Christian and Christiana when they make their pilgrimages. He was the first to teach them to read allegories.
He does this by showing them a series of vignettes, each imbued with religious significance. Although the performer begins his presentations by explaining to the pilgrims what each scene means, they eventually learn to interpret the signs themselves. The interpreter`s house is the first important stop of the pilgrimage. In addition to equipping pilgrims with allegorical understanding, the interpreter provides them with armor and weapons and, in Christiana`s case, a guide (M. Grand-Cœur). “Now, Christian began to regret that Mr. Mondain had followed Wiseman`s advice: and with him he saw the evangelist coming to him, at the sight of whom he began to blush with shame. The evangelist grew closer and closer; and when he came to him, he looked at him with a grave and terrible face, and thus began to quarrel with Christian.
As a judge in the Faithful trial, he represents the cruelty and absurdity of the justice system from Bunyan`s perspective.
