Examples of Mankind in a Sentence

    I think a lot about the Department of Energy, because energy is my baby, oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the Earth for mankind's use, instead of relying on unfriendly foreign nations for us to import their resources, and if I were head of that.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    To me, Good Friday represents one of the most important events in the evolution of religious beliefs and humanity, not only for Christianity but for mankind in general, for it represents the greatest sacrifice by Jesus Christ as much as the exceptional suffering and passion in Jesus Christ’s‘ life. This sentence by Jesus Christ, “Father, forgive them they know not what they do.“, signifies the ultimate and the highest level of forgiving despite the venomous actions and horrible sins of enemies. Good Friday is the special day for meditation on the sufferings and sacrifices made by Jesus Christ for mankind, and most importantly, for gathering the strength to forgive one’s worst enemies regardless of their unacceptable actions.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

  4. Alexander Pope:
