senior homework help, cut for those interested...just involved proofreading and telling me i didnt screw up

Csn you all proofread and make sure that my "super sentences" for Englisg meet all the requirements? I've done the best I can, and now just want to double check for any errors I missed. The deal is that you have to have figurative imagery in your sentence (i.e. similie, metaphor, personification), it has to be gramatically flawless, and you need to be able to tell what the word means by the end of the sentence.

1. (palliative – adjective – relieving or soothing the symptoms of a disease or disorder without effecting a cure; moderating pain or sorrow by making it easier to bear)
My sentence: The claim from healthcare professionals that chocolate has no palliative effects on PMS is about as absurd as the thought that penicillin doesn’t really help sickness.

2. (venerable - adjective - commanding respect because of age or impressive dignity)
My sentence: The venerable, old tree in Pocahontas dispensed advice as easily and as surely as a gumball machine dispensing sweet pieces of bubblegum.

should there be a comma between venerable and old, and should old even be in there? could you tell what venerable ment without it?

3. (salvation - noun - the act of saving or protecting from harm, risk, loss, destruction, etc)
My sentence: Salvation is an important part in any Christian’s life; the act of being saved of your sins allows you to feel as clean and pure as a newborn baby.

4. (imperturbable – adjective – incapable of being upset or agitated; not easily excited; calm)
My sentence: I hate how, in today’s society, guys are imperturbable while girls are easily flustered or excited, usually feeling as though they have a flock of butterflies in their stomachs.

5. (erudition – noun – knowledge acquired by study, research, etc)
My sentence: In high school erudition isn’t always accepted by one’s peers, it is usually mocked, and the student teased for being as smart as the teachers.
