When Langston was a twelve-year-old, he went to aunt's church. In the church, he was the only child who still not be saved by Jesus. His aunt worried about it. As time went by, he felt loneliness and gloomy. In “Salvation” by Langston Hughes, he said, “But I was really crying because I couldn't bear to tell her that I had lied, that I had deceived everybody in the church, that I hadn't seen Jesus, and that now I didn't believe there was a Jesus anymore, since he didn't come to help me.” This sentence is very meaningful because it describes his feeling such as anxiety, sadness, and pressure. Many people have similar experiences to Langston. My experience with a religious force was very similar with Langston in “Salvation.” When I was a child, my aunt took me in a church and told me that did not go outside before you saved by Jesus. I could not hang out with friends before I saw a Jesus inside my mind. During six days, reading a lot of books about Jesus and watching movies about the Bible were physically exhausting and emotionally draining. But I did not saw Jesus in my mind. I wanted to go outside and missed my parents. To me, living in a church was the same as living in prison without bars. Friends from church pressured me to believe in Jesus. It is so hard to resist peer pressure. Next day, I had lied that I believed Jesus and talked with Jesus about my fault. I had deceived everybody in the church. Unlike Langston, I was not crying because of lying. Also, unlike him, I did not feel guilty and

To begin, I was nervous about attending a service for a faith to which I did not belong and which was not even part of
The first thing I noticed was how small the room was; more than two dozen chairs were lined up against all the walls of the room and in the center was a special table with a microphone on top of it. The meeting I went to was a speaker meeting, which meant one individual told his story of his life and how he came to be in AA. So sitting there in the centered table was the speaker. I made sure to not make eye contact as my eyes roamed to inspect the room. I felt a little tense, but then realized no one else did. At the moment I thought of how devastating what these people were going through was. I suddenly felt a pang of sadness as I scanned the room and noticed how completely ordinary the individuals in the room
The author Langston Hughes reminisces about when his Aunt took him to church when he was thirteen years old; ‘Every night for weeks there had been much preaching, singing praying, shouting, and some very hard sinners had been brought to Jesus’(1059). At the end of revival the children were asked to approach the ‘mourners’ bench ‘To be saved!’ Langston’s Aunt told him about how when you were saved ‘something happened to you inside.’ (1059) So Mr. Hughes went to the bench with the fellow children in the church, the preacher preached, hymns were sung they keep saying ‘wont’ you come, Young lambs to Jesus?’ One by one the children rose to Jesus. Leaving Langston Hughes and another boy Westley; the boy Westley got tired of sitting on the bench he stood up to be saved. Langston Hughes sat there waiting for Jesus he too grew tired of sitting on the bench and he figured that Jesus didn’t smite Westley for lying; so he stood up.
"KILL..." "Shiro? Are you okay man? Take deep breaths, in and out, you've gotta." "ME!" I fully came to consciousness with a scream and a realisation of the cold sweat that drowned my skin and the pain surging through my extremities. I loosed

This devil might seem powerful, but finally I had a power stronger than his. So I used it. Loading up my heart with prayer, I aimed it at the lost soul before me… Maybe because I was watching him so closely a funny thing started to happen. See devil I was so used to disappeared. (216-217)

The naivety of my childhood caused me to believe that I was not good enough, that I had to change myself in order to gratify the people of my church and maintain my dad’s good image. Whenever I went to church, I felt that I had to completely change myself in order to keep everyone happy, everyone but myself. As I got older and figured out that it is impossible for anyone to fully fulfill the expectations of others, I realized how restricted I had been my entire life. I finally came to the realization that people were putting me in a box unsuitable for me and expected me to fit in
My journey on to my Christian faith began when I was born so I basically didn’t feel. I had a choice not to be a Christian but I never asked why am I a Christian because I felt as though being a child of god was the right way to go I felt as though that god would always be here for not just me but with everyone that needed him. My journey to Christ probably would have to be in the miracles that he have brought me through and I have seen. A long time ago my uncle basically overdosed and the doctors said that he was brain dead and that we should just cut the cord. I will never forget the hospital room filled with the people from my church praying out loud. As I was sitting in there I could feel the spiritual energy. It felt like my skin was crawling with adrenaline. The doctors took us back there to see him and when I saw him I was honestly scared I didn’t think he was going make it but he made it my mother told me when she went back there she saw a angel over him and she said that his wings filled the room. After that day my uncle began to get better when he got home he didn’t have any memory of any sort he had to start completely over we had to help him step by step. And now today my
