Pi was a strong believer in Christ and Christianity which lead him to surviving what most wouldn 't believe
This however would slowly die down, before it completely dies out, as Elie experiences the deaths that plagued the camps. Progressively he slowly lost faith in God. “For the first time I felt anger rising within in me. Why should I sanctify His name” (Night 33)? He felt as though the “Almighty, the eternal, and terrible Master of the Universe” decided to not do anything to save them from their nearly certain deaths (Night 33).
The lack of food is the reason so many colonists died of hunger. The second reason to why so many colonists died was because of occupations. There were too many gentleman in May 1607 and January 1608 that did not want to do any work at all. One surgeon in 1607 and 1608 was not good.That was bad because there was only one surgeon to help to cure so many people injured. In 1608, there was 51 occupations unknown that really did nothing as well.
Parris] never conceived that the children were anything but thankful for being permitted to walk straight, eyes slightly lowered, arms at the sides, and mouths shut until bidden to speak” (4). It can be interpreted from that exert that he also ran a strict household, and was controlling over his daughter Betty. Puritans, including Reverend Parris, believed if you went against their religion or did not follow their rules perfectly that in Salem one “... may be accordingly proceeded against” (5). This means you could be sentenced in jail for not being religious enough. Additionally, a primary trait of Reverend Parris is that he was power-hungry, meaning he lusted the role of being in charge of Salem.
He is their safe haven and secure base. They will trust in Him through the storms and depend on Him for everything. I am progressing into a secure relationship with God.

Because the group of boys don’t understand fear, they sadly rip Simon up thinking he was the beast. Simon’s wisdom of the truth can also be compared to Jesus ' knowledge about the true Beast. Like Simon, Jesus also went on a journey and was challenged by the devil. Jesus went 40 days in a desert with no food or water, and when he came back he later died in an inhuman way. People are sometimes unable to face and believe the truth.
He is a hero though. After his death nineteen other people were put to death because they refused to confess to something they had nothing to do with. He died for his sons and his wife.

Elie was the same way, but by the end of his experiences in the concentration camps he had come to resent God and the fact that God would let something so terrible to happen to him, his family, and the others around him. After reading what happened to him, I believe that I too would have disowned God and my beliefs. How could such a loving and caring God let something the horrible happen to his chosen people. Personally, I believe that everyone is born with morals programed into their very being not to mutilate and destroy God’s greatest creation, so reading about all that happened in the concentration camps shocked me.
