We need to copy how Jesus lived; He was pushed many times by wrong teachers and Pharisees but His self-control was just amazing. He knew just what to say to who; He was such amazing leader; and walked with confidence and never allowed the devil to take away what He had. Bust us?

It’s a dark page from the young man’s book of life and religion. Pi, the main character of this book, believes in three different religions, although they give him hope and energy, it brings the conflict for him because he has to kill and that’s against the faith after the trip; also, Pi’s actions may destroy and ultimately betray his faith and all three religions that he believes in. Religion plays an important part in Pi’s whole life, it gives pi hope and energy.
Not only is the Pardoner crooked in his job, but the job he has is crooked itself. By selling indulgences, the Pardoner again puts his love for money in between himself and God. The Pardoner is not spiritually strong lastly because of his sexual condition. Being gay in the church was frowned upon greatly, and was actually a sin.
