As he grows older Adam joins the military, as his father wants him to, but he gives up what he wants for his future. Although, this is a sacrifice he does not do it because he loves his father, but rather he wants his father to love him.
The Screwtape Letters In the reading of “The Screwtape Letters” a devil’s advocate by the name of Screwtape advises his fellow nephew, Wormwood to sway a patient into wrong thinking and positioning. A great amount of critical thinking has me constantly trying to describe the forceful tactics of Screwtape and his very sly and cunning ways. While the book is primarily targeted to Christians, it can be read and interpreted differently by a wide range of people (in my opinion). The devil works in many different ways to try and achieve the ultimate goal of gaining another follower.

Relating the story scripture to the Old Testament however reminds me Exodus how there was lots of corruption from God’s people and stirred them in the right direction giving the the Ten Commandments to abide by. Relating it to the New Testament when the mestizo followed the priest only to betray him reminds me of Judas betraying Jesus. Another scripture passage that relates to this is the parable of the lost son. No matter how much the son disobeyed his father and spent the money he gave, or drank, or fooled around his father forgave him and prepared a feast for the return of his son. The same hold true for the priest and God the Father.
