“Sample Topic”- Unclean Spirits
In both antiquity and modernity there has been a contentious dispute on the existence of unclean spirits. Various fundamental religious viewpoints offer proof that the struggle between good and evil is factual. These opinions also suggest that vile and unclean spirits coexist with us. In contrast, many in our society believe that since these forces cannot be seen, they do not exist. However, there is evidence to support the existence of unclean spirits. First, I will prove that unclean spirits do exist based on personal experience. Next, I will provide proof of their existence based on exorcisms performed by biblical personalities. Finally, I will prove that unclean spirits exist by providing evidence of its influence on modern society.
First…….. (Project a strong argument as it relates the initial stance of the three parts of your thesis).
Your thesis should clearly state what you plan to argue, and it should “announce” how you plan to defend your position—you must incorporate all ideas that will support your contrasting position. This will prepare your readers for that which will be offered in the body of your work.
Transitions signal relationships between ideas—relationships such as: “Another example coming up— (stay alert)!” or “Here’s an exception to my previous statement” or “Although this idea appears to be true, here’s the real story.” Basically, transitions provide the reader with directions for how to piece together your ideas into a logically coherent argument.
