God decided to have Jesus save the world because of all the sin happening. God sent an angel to tell the Virgin Mary she would have a son that would be God’s prophet and spread the Christian faith. In John 4:9 of The Holy Bible it quotes “God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” This means that Jesus was sent in hopes that we would live by God’s rules. Jesus grew up but was unaware of his purpose so he needed to contact his father, God. In the article Faith in Jesus Christ Russel M. Nelson writes, “He went to Judean desert to meditate for 40 days and 40 night.” Once Jesus learned what God requested him to do, he returned to began spreading God’s word.
As one of the most referenced piece of literature, it is no surprise that Bradbury uses the Bible to enhance his book. While united as a nation, the people of Shinar wished to build a tower that reached the heavens; God was not pleased.

First, in Unwind, Shusterman uses character archetypes to uniquely show how Lev has changed as a person after being betrayed by his mentors. In the beginning of the novel, the author chooses to portray Lev as an innocent character archetype. All his life Lev was naive and was brainwashed by his parents and pastor into believing that being a tithe was a good thing, and that the only way he could prove himself with god was by sacrificing himself. “ Lev knew he was a tithe from the time he was little…’you’re special,’ his parents had always told him. ‘Your life will be to serve god, and mankind.’ ”(ch.
Edwards really lets the message of “Gods wrath” sink into our minds to show how mighty, powerful, and capable the Lord is. The Lord gives us many opportunities to rely on Him and when we need his love and mercy the most. People ignore that and believe they can be their own gods.

We can define the word salvation as deliverance from sin and its consequences, believed by Christians to be brought about by faith in Christ. One can be saved by accepting Jesus Christ into your life, but this wasn’t the case for Langston Hughes when he wrote “Salvation”. Having portrayed himself as a young teenage boy when this piece was written and using the first person perspective, the pressure he felt wanting to actually see and feel Jesus is the main reason why he ruined it for himself, and he was not “saved”. The first two lines even say “I was saved from sin when I was going on thirteen. But not really saved.” (Hughes, 299).
