The coming of Christ had a purpose, namely to serve the Lord and carry on his work. Similarly, we get the prophecy of Christ works as a priest (Psalms 110:4; Hebrew 5:6,10). Similarly, the Messianic Psalms included a prediction of the rejection of Christ. Christ was rejected by the Jews just as it was written in Psalms 118:22-23; Matthew 21:42; Mk. 12:10-11: “The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner”.

However, the theory was meant to “instill obedience” and was a form of “propaganda” (The Divine Right of Kings). “Papa” is utilizing this divine right similarly; through Mona, the potential deity in this case, he is softening his “harsh” rule, the very rule instilled by Bokonon and McCabe to stifle San Lorenzo’s problems. He uses the divine right as propaganda; by having a god-like, religious figure in his rule, he is indirectly convincing the San Lorenzans that it is acceptable to practice Bokononism. Mona's character is juxtaposed with "Papa's" character for the same reason McCabe is juxtaposed with Bokonon and becomes the "tyrant" and pirate" while Bokonon becomes the "angel" and saint"; they must enforce dynamic tension in order to promote Boknononism indirectly (Vonnegut
Martin Luther was a german theologian who brought on the reformation by demanding changes in the Catholic Church (“Martin Luther”). Martin grew with a father that was a miner and grew up working and being very religious (“Martin Luther”).
