In the second stanza of Blake’s To Tirzah, the speaker makes a reference to the original sin as committed by Adam and Eve. Saying that they originally were doomed to die, “mercy changd [sic] Death into Sleep”, which is a reference to the creation of mortality.

It must be noted here that a cross isn’t a crucifix unless it is marked with a representation of Jesus. A crucifix could be found in Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches, whereas empty crosses are found mostly in Methodist, Anglican, and Baptist churches.

In this essay, I will demonstrate the conflict between the speaker and the world by showing how the speaker answers three questions that reveal his worldview: why are we here? what is wrong with us? how do we fix the problem? According to the speaker, we are here to prepare for the second coming of God because it is in the near future. “Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world, The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere The ceremony of innocence is drowned” (Yeats (3-6)).
One may argue that Christianity was the mission religion that influenced Zoroastrianism. However, Zoroastrianism predates Christianity, therefore these ideas were already in place before Christianity was being transcribed. An article summoned up the belief that “....upon death and according to its earthly deeds and its acceptance of the Christian faith, the soul enters Heaven, Purgatory or Hell. There it awaits the Last Judgment when the dead shall rise again, the redeemed to enjoy life everlasting and the unsaved to suffer eternally” (Bodhinatha Veylanswami 40-41). This passage summarizes the Christian idea that upon death the soul will either enter Heaven, Purgatory or Hell depending on how that person chose to live their life.

These lines let us know that evil did prevail over these people. They turned away from God and turned toward stone gods, even to the Devil himself for help. This compares with the time.
