722 words - 3 pages

Has anyone ever invaded your house before? Or have you ever been enslaved by people you don't know before? You're home may be a very sacred and comforting place for you and your family, but during the 1750's in South America, home to many Indian tribes called the Guarani, were subtle to enslavement by powers that were nearly beyond their control.

His dedication was important as, in 1 Corinthians 13, it says…"And though I give all my goods to feed the poor, and surrender my body to the flames, and have not love, I gain nothing."…meaning that every good deed you do is useless if you do not do them out of love, this is a very 'right' thing to do.However, Gabriel is also following this passage from Corinthians, he is helping to convert the Indians out of love, a love for his God as well as a love for the people, he wants to protect them from being damned to hell. This follows the second of Jesus' two greatest commandments…"Love thy neighbour as thyself"…meaning that, should he be one of the Indians, he would want to a chance to go to heaven, this is also a very Christian action.Rodrigo...
