John has the conscience of an honest man even though he has committed a severe sin, which he hides, adultery. Because of this his name is tainted, making the reader doubt the goodness in him. When Proctor reveals the truth in court, we are surprised because he has confessed knowing it will blacken his name, and he has done this in order to save his wife, Elizabeth Proctor. Because of this we are able to see that Proctor bears responsibility for what has occurred. However when he confesses, Abigail turns against him and accuses Proctor of being a witch.

He was there to increase the amount of guilt Hester and Dimmesdale had even though Dimmesdale didn 't know Chillingworth was Hester’s husband he still felt the guilt. I don 't necessarily believe that Chillingworth is as evil as he comes off to be in the story but I do believe that he is is doing far worse in his actions that Hester and Dimmesdale.

Arthur Dimmesdale was a character with plenteous authority and a vast following from the puritan people which admired him, but he lost all of the power. The sin he committed mentally and physically exhausted himself which consequently lead him body to death. Dimmesdale receives brutal punishment because Nathaniel Hawthorne wanted to use him to teach a moral lesson that sin doesn’t have to be the event that defines how to live a life.

John committed the sin of adultery with Abigail. He seems truly sorry for his error with Abigail. Elizabeth does not forgive him and does not trust him any longer. In my opinion someone in Elizabeth 's position can sometimes truly trust a spouse that cheats. If the person in Elizabeth´s position can tell that the other position is truly sincere and sorry then I think that the person deserves a second chance, but if the person is not sincere, and continues to do it.
Arthur was torn between admitting he was wrong and confessing his sin or to hide it and let Hester be the mockery of the town by herself. In The Scarlet letter Arthur was Hester’s lover, but no one knew it. Arthur was the towns priest and no one could ever know what he did because it was a very bad sin in their eyes. Hawthorne states in The Scarlet Letter, “The minister, with a voice so sweet, tremulous, but powerful, insomuch that the hall reechoed, and the hollow amour rang with it” (104). The minister was a very nice and sweet man.
