In the haze of uncertainty, Ralph reflected stability for the boys, assigning tasks and organizing meetings, mimicking the comfort of the law and order of the past. However, the satisfaction in his civilized society rapidly deteriorates, and Ralph can no longer uphold the civilization which provided security to the boys.

This Bible quote shows how the kids that lived at Castle Rock threw boulders and buried themselves in a bad situation because of their fear of the beast, the devil. But as the devil reins terror into the hearts of the kids, they are also afraid of the wrath of God, the island, after he sends the parachutist down onto the island to send the boys a message that they are not acting like proper beings. The symbolism in that is the parachutist represents Jesus, who was sent down to teach humans the lessons of God. Then when the people turned on Jesus and hung him on a cross where he would die, he had risen into heaven after his death promising to return again, just like when the parachutist flew up during the windstorm after the boys killed Piggy. In the Bible, Jesus promises to return to Earth for a final judgment.
