The of the power of the book. As

The scene where Carnegie finds Eli outside the village
and ask for the holy Bible that Eli have, it showed me how firm and strong
personality he was to protect the sacred book just in order to save it from immoral
people. It can be inferred that his actions are always with good faith in God
and he proves to us that no matter how hard the situation is, even if it is a
matter of life and death, he is ready to fight for his life for our God. That
is why, it made me into conclusion that God sent him in the world for a
purpose, a role that would change the life of many and that would reunite again
the world in to a better place. As gun shot was fired to Eli’s body, he remains
to stay strong despite the pain that he felt from the shot and with God’s
guidance, He protected Eli’s life from death. After this scene, I really
thought that he would be in a lot of trouble because of Carnegie’s men fighting
and firing gun shot against himself. In addition, I was even more amazed on
every fighting scene of Eli against the bad guys because it made me more
believed in his capacities because of how he showed faith in God. It made me
even think more that we should never under estimate the power of God’s will.
Solara also believed in Eli’s capacities, that is why she came and followed him
throughout his journey. Carnegie knew that if he gets the holy Bible from Eli,
it will make him even more powerful because many people would believe in him
because of the power of the book. As Carnegie’s men seeks for the book of Eli,
the movie allows us to see how the beauty of the world vanished because of our
unwanted behavior to the natural resources we have. The world cried out and
resulted into a wasteland because we simply exhausted its limited resource, how
we humans improperly used it over time. That is why economics is here to
educate us not only to answer why things happen and resulted like that but it
also teaches us to know the significance of every resources and how it could
greatly affect us. When the men and Carnegie found out where Eli and Solara
was, they fired many gun shots over them in the house were they went for water
and supplies. When they surrendered over them, Carnegie with his immoral acts
fired a gun to Eli after they took the holy Bible from him. After they shot
him, Eli’s eyes speak thousands of words, begging for mercy and crying out for
help. Solara could not do anything to help him but to cry for justice. When
Carnegie got the holy Bible from him, he smells power and strength over his
plans but after he opened up the Bible it seems to have no words or writings on
it but full of braille dots wherein only blind people can read it. Eli and
Solara got into a safe place and found good people to trust on and met a man
who can publish books, then it is where it all started. Eli elaborately tells
every word of God that was written in the bible and the man patiently writes
all what Eli says. After that a new King James Bible was published to the
world. A Bible that can unite the humanity from the ruined world. After
watching the movie, I realized that every person in this world has a purpose to
fulfil and has every reason that is happening in our lives. It is with us on
how we can build greater faith and strong relationship with God. I have learned
a lot from this movie not only knowing the importance of economics which it can
be applied in the context of the movie but also to have a greater faith and
believe in God. I have learned to see more clearly the effects of economics in
the society especially with regard to scarcity that could affect our life on
earth. As a graduating student from the pontifical, royal and catholic
university, I should have built a strong faith to our God because of the values
that the university upholds to each and every student.
