One day, I went to my friend’s house, who was a member of the church I was ignoring, and I felt at home, but I was alone. I then stuck around and got baptized. I was happy, I was on a spiritual high, sort of like when Pictor first became the tree, he thought he was happy. Then I realized I was not necessarily alone, but I was still missing something. A couple months later my sister converted to the gospel, that is what I was missing.
He then launches into a long tangent of how gluttony and drunkenness are the roots of all sin. He then continues to tell of three drunkards in a tavern, who looked outside on a funeral knell to see a corpse being carried down the street. One of them sends a slave to see who the corpse was only to find out that he was an old companion of his whose heart was smashed by a stealthy thief named Death. The three drunkards became rioters as they decide to avenge their dead companion by destroying Death. After walking for about half a mile, the threesome ran into a pitiful old man who had been waiting for Death to come to take his heart.

And not trying to go out of line here, but I imagine his mother was probably a prostitute, because back in those days it was frowned upon to fornicate before marriage. People were still very religious. In 1775 the American Revolution had begun, and Jackson was prone to violence. He despised the British Empire.
In the beginning of “Margery Kempe”, a spiritual autobiography, Kempe uses imagery to portray her devotion to God as well as the process of moving away from her wifely duties. The nature of her relationship with Christ is all consuming. Kempe has been trying to persuade her husband to let her leave after the death of her first child. After unsuccessful tries, Kempe finally has convinced her husband to let her leave him after having fourteen children. “And make my body free to God, so that you never make any claim on me requesting any conjugal debt after this day as long as you live— and shall eat and drink on Fridays at your bidding.” (NA 431) Once Kempe leaves she begins her spiritual journey and embarks on many pilgrimages.
“ ‘Sacre tonnerre,’ said the captain, ‘but is it feared that it was that accursed Englishman himself---the Scarlet Pimpernel’”(pg 15, Orczy). It was under the disguise of an old woman that the Pimpernel was able to rescue a family of French aristocrats, from right underneath the authority's noses. Those involved in the French revolution despise him for this ability to hide himself from them with his cunning. Chaveulin grows increasingly frustrated for not being able to discover the Pimpernel due to his master disguise skills. As the story continues to develop, it is clear that even the demeanors in personal and political affairs and such are disguised; not only by the Scarlet Pimpernel, but by Marguerite as well.

Goodman Brown leaves the safety of his home in the town to take a journey through the woods this leads into the faith and reason archetype. Faith is the personification of faith and purity, even in her own name. Goodman Brown’s internal conflict in the story is based on whether to “keep the faith.” In the beginning of the story the struggle is literal, Brown’s wife begs him to stay at home and not venture out into the woods. This decision to leave behind Faith is a metaphor for his thoughts about religion, which he similarly abandons at the end of the story. Faith begs Goodman Brown not to leave causing him to wonder if Faith has lost his faith in him, he asks “dust thou doubt me already, and we but three months married?” (Hawthorne 133) Goodman brown carries on with his journey and meets the man with the serpent who accuses him of being late, which
I found my self-worth in what I could achieve, and whom I could impress. Later, I would find myself extricated from this material rut through a relationship with Christ – not a Christian religion. At the start of my sophomore year, I was invited back to the church that I attended apprehensively with my parents when I was younger. Although I believed in God (because everyone else did), I had never really invested before. I thought

After Gever, Diesel and the others finished off the guards, they began to make their way to the city hold. Cutting down a banner proclaiming test day, Gever and the others fought past the guards, making their way into the building step by step. Several guards ran toward them, and Porter was shot and wounded.
