He went to the temple through an underground gallery and lit the inaugural fire. His uncles were furious because they wanted to make this fire themselves. They stormed the hill but Quetzalcoatl killed and sacrificed them. Not only are the Mimixcoas guilty for having assassinated their brother, but we also find again a passage from animal to human sacrifice. The uncles fancy that Quetzalcoatl will offer small animals while they would sacrifice bigger game, but after all it is Quetzalcoatl who makes the most precious offering: his own uncles instead of animals.” (Graulich 2000:
However, the Bible also gives us examples of people who put to death their worldly passions and pursue righteousness through the discipline of self-control. In the Old Testament, a man named David was chosen to be king during the reign of King Saul. King Saul was jealous of David and wanted him dead so he searched for David in order to kill him. On one particular outing of Saul and his men who were searching to kill David there arose a certain opportunity for David to kill Saul.

Some decisions Johnny made that were influenced by the gang members were killing the Soc, wanting to turn himself in, and saving the children in the burning church. A clear sign of the gangs influence on Johnny was when he decided to prevent the Soc’s from drowning Ponyboy and defending himself instead of letting the Socs beat them up and have them possibly drown Ponyboy. More specifically, after finally fighting back and killing Bob, he says to Ponyboy “‘I killed him’ he said slowly. ‘I killed that boy”’(Hinton 56).
