I had thought my days of tedious and exhausting work were over for good, and surely I would become a wealthy and well known sellsword. Eventually I found work with a with a group of mercenaries.
“The Devil and Tom Walker” shows religion in the way that reflects hypocrisy. Tom Walker was a religious more or less and he had sold his soul to the devil. When he had sold his soul to the devil, he was plentiful and became rich, but as time began to creep on Tom began to wonder what would become of him after he died. Tom became a notorious churchgoer, brought his Bible wherever he went and did whatever he could to try and change his fate. “He had left his little Bible at the bottom of his coat pocket, and his big Bible on the desk buried under the mortgage he was about to foreclose: never was a sinner taken more unawares” (Irving, 1824, p. 9).
Many gathered to watch the crucifixion of Jesus. On the contrary, while Proctor fell victim to it, Jesus overcame the temptations of evil. Many authors create symbols to relate to the reader.

A group of christians came into the village and influenced some of the people to become christians and start believing in their god. “ I am one of them,” Nwoye turned into a christian because he felt a relief from the crime that his father had did but still felt like he couldn’t forgive him for the way that his religion was. “He is not my father,” Nwoye himself was a very sensitive boy and he felt some type of way when he found out that his father did not wish to speak about him.

One of the most important evidence for this is the transformation of the disciples. Before and after the crucifixion the disciples were timid and fearful, they were terrified of being killed but something changed and that was the appearance of Jesus bodily risen from the dead. The moment they saw Jesus again they were all transformed because they knew the truth. They finally understood that Jesus was God incarnate and that he saves people from sin. That is why all the disciples had a radical change and became bold witnesses to everything they had seen, even to the point of dying for their beliefs.
Martin Luther grew up as a Christian and died as both a Christian and a heretic. In his heart, Luther believed himself a Christian his whole life even though he was excommunicated from the Church by the Pope. The relationship between Martin Luther and the Catholic Church was complicated. Luther became a monk, and he devoted his life to be the best monk he could be.
