Lamott, continues to explain why she makes her son go to church. Lamott reveals the personal relationship of people within the church but focuses on a woman who secretly always gives her dimes to support her and her son, even though they no longer need it. Lamott understands that her son is cared for by others in the church. In the chapter Traveling Mercies (Lamott, 2006, p. 106) understanding the difference of our timing opposed to God 's timing seems to be the lesson Lamott discusses. Chapter three talks about situations we face that God uses to change our lives.

Flannery O'Connor was a devoted Catholic, and , as exhibited in most of her stories, "The Life You Save May Be Your Own" has Christian themes of redemption and grace. Lucynell Craters, the only innocent character in the story, symbolizes purity and is described as "an angel of Gawd." Her character acts stop the shifty, self-serving Mr. Shiftlet and help him reach redemption. In “The Life You Save May Be Your Own,” O’Connor uses religious symbolism to emphasize spiritual struggles between good and evil and how humans are only looking for their own advantage. After being offered a place to stay in exchange for fixing a car by Mrs.Crater, Tom Shiftlet meets Lucynell Craters and through his interactions with her, Tom Shiftlet has a chance to achieve

Throughout the novel, Jack compares and associates appearance with one’s expected responsibility: a doctor saves lives, a professor demands respect, a nun keeps the faith. When Jack encounters the nun, he becomes elated and curious about their dedication to their faith. He immediately assigns a role to her based off her appearance and the stereotype instantly falls apart, exposing the superficiality of truth: “’You’re a nun. Nuns believe those things. When we see a nun, it cheers us up, it’s cute and amusing, being reminded that someone still believes in angels, in saints, all the traditional things.’ ‘You would have a head so dumb to believe this?’” (DeLillo, 303).

Throughout the course of any given weekend across America a religious ritual is taking place. People find themselves returning to church and sitting in the same seat because they consider themselves devoted Christians. The congregation sings songs of joy and pray as if judgment day was upon them. The majority of Christians illustrates an imitation Christ-like character but secretly conceal their true sinful ways deep within their hearts. Flannery O’Conner in her short stories “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” “Revelation,” and “Everything That Rises Must Converge” uses her theme of religious self-righteous hypocrisy to persuade readers to examine their spiritual life, repent of their sine, and begin living authentic Christian lives.
