John Proctor is upset that his name must be posted for all the village to see, because it will tarnish his name. John Proctor’s character is one based on reputation, and guilt. The guilt comes from his affair with Abigail Williams. The reputation aspect comes from when he is accused by Mary Warren of trying to turn her to the Devil. I believe that John Proctor grows tired of the accusations, as to why he speaks of his false involvement with Satan in front of the town.

Many of the situations that Wormwood tries to use, in order to turn the young Christian from his faith, are the very same trials people face in a typical day. Now since everyone can agree that everyone has sinned except for Christ. Then it is easy to see that the majority of people need to understand what sin is and how to be prepared to manage it. This book by CS Lewis, equips someone with the tools they need to recognize Satan's deceptions for these three following reasons: Wormwood used the man's feelings towards his mother to harden his heart against her, Wormwood tries to tempt the Christian with the sin of pride, and finally Wormwood attempts to cause the man to fall in his purity Firstly, Wormwood used the

The Devil’s disclosure to YGB that his church leaders in the likes of Goody Cloyse, the Minister and Deacon Gookin are members of his Black Sabbath congregation by night must have caused him to be “overburdened with the heavy sickness of his heart” (page 6, para 1, line 2) for they have betrayed Goodman‘s trust and respect for the Church’s mandate”. Confrontation with Humankind YGB realizes the conflicting nature of his loved ones and respected church leaders. His mind is unable to accept their hypocrisy and he lost his belief in the goodness of humanity. He became socially withdrawn and isolated from Faith, his children and church community.

While taking the journey through the woods Brown is figuratively exploring his fears, feelings, and many other things he would not normally acknowledge. Again a sense of exploring his subconscious. His faith is put to satire in these woods by showing a devil congregation that has many of his fellow church goers and is visually very much like a church congregation. This follows the turning on end the rights and wrongs set in Browns’ mind.
When Reverend Hale was first introduced into the play, it was that Reverend Parris had asked Hale to come down and assist in the pursuit of the evil that was devouring their small town whole. Hale was cautious at first in accepting situations that people believe have witchery involved. Considering he is recognized for his authority on witchcraft and the devil, Hale initially comes off as arrogant and authoritative. Although Hale never accused anyone of witchcraft, he just asked questions about it, he is more than ready to investigate and rid Salem of any demonic influences. In Act I, Hale arrives with his heavy books of authority.
Question No. 3 Answer: The narrator ponders whether Goodman Brown 's night in the forest could have all been a fantasy, however says that even on the off chance that it wasn 't genuine, it destroyed Goodman Brown 's life. He wound up afraid and doubtful of everyone around him. In spite of the fact that Goodman Brown kept on going to chapel and tune in to the minister, he would turn pale and feared that the congregation, the evil minister, and his listening ward would all be crushed. He frequently woke up at midnight and shrank from Faith beside him in bed, and when his family prayed together at morning or at night, he glared and murmured to himself.
TITLE OF THE STORY ‘The Boarded Window’ itself represents Murdock and tells the readers that he was under a great amount of stress. The readers are also told that he did not board the windows due to his hatred of light and fresh air, but some other reason such as his wife’s death. Windows are generally the passageway to something, but when boarded up, it blocks any such entrances. “Anyone knew why it was so closed; certainly not because of the occupant’s dislike of light and air,” these lines justify the aforementioned
Eliezer was very close to god and wanted to learn anything he could. Once he was taken away from his home, he began losing faith in god and lost all hope. Eliezer stopped praying and he believed that god was unjust. Eliezer felt as though god was uncaring and so he stopped believing in him. His view on god changed juristically throughout Night.
When everyone in camp was crying and asking where God was as they all watched the boy struggle to cling on to life, Elie had thought to himself that God was there “hanging…from [the] gallows”, symbolizing his loss of faith in God. From then on, as Rosh Hashanah passed, Elie felt intense hatred for God as He did nothing to help the thousands of people suffering and being murdered. Elie refused to sanctify God’s name because of the immense pain He was causing, and felt angry that others in the camp continued to worship Him. Elie felt “terribly alone in a world without God, without man” and “without love or mercy”. As everyone prayed, Elie felt like “an observer [and] a stranger” because he had disconnected from God, and as he defiantly continued to eat instead of fasting for Yom Kippur, Elie “felt a great void opening” inside him as his last bit of trust in God faded.
The girls “twitched, cried, made odd noises, and huddled in corners” and soon started making accusations about who had bewitched them. One of the first accused was Samuel Parris’ own slave, Tituba. It was unheard of for a Reverend to have witchcraft practiced under his own roof, and Parris could not afford to lose his reputation. Samuel stood by his children in court as they testified against the accused, and he even helped them by testifying against Rebecca Nurse. People thought for certain that if the Reverend was standing with the girls against the so called “evil witches” that there must be a real problem.
When these people were being treated in such malicious ways, they started to believe that God wasn’t really there for them. They felt as if He wasn 't there to protect them. Sometimes, they started to rebel against their own religion and turn to their worst enemies for faith. Throughout Elie’s memoir, Night, Elie shows that many people, including himself, lost faith during their stay at the concentration camps. Many other victims of the concentration camps lived to see such tragedies that they began to lose hope in God, as well as he did.
He decides to tell both of his friends, Maria and Tom. Tom instantly assumes that he’s crazy. Maria, on the other hand, doesn’t jump to that conclusion but instead, she seriously considers that he might actually be telling the truth. (Page 139) Everybody else always assumed he was just making it up, especially adults. When he had told his mother about how the people attempting the demon ritual had been taken to Hell she had just said, ‘You had me worried for a moment there.
