Carrie’s mom in the 2013 film is more interested in harming herself than harming Carrie White. In the original version there was a sense of self-hatred, but in the latest version that self-hatred is magnified. Margaret White’s self-harm in the original version seemed like a ploy to increase the fear of her daughter. However, in Pierce’s version anytime she is on screen in the new edition it raises her undisclosed infatuation with self-harm. In this film, it is apparent that a rape caused her unyielding disgust of sex. This makes her mother less of an antagonist and more of a victim to sufferings rather than a catalyst. At the beginning of the film, Margaret is in the midst of giving birth, completely alone, and ignorant of how babies are made.
Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee demonstrates morality. To have morality is to know one’s beliefs are, and can express those beliefs through their actions regardless how a society around them reacts to those actions. In Maycomb County, everyone is discriminatory of race and unaccepting of change. In the 1930’s, if you believed in equality between blacks and whites, you were frowned upon. For example, wherever the Finch family went, the residents of Maycomb County would display bigoted rhetoric towards them and threaten their safety simply for defending Tom robinson in court. Nevertheless, Atticus never feared their actions or threats because he knew what he and his family knew what the were doing was the right thing. Atticus
Erickson (2001) define what the Christian doctrine of sin is. 1) An inward inclination, 2) rebellious and disobedient, 3) spiritual disability, 4) incomplete fulfilment of God’s standards, and 5) displacement of God (pp. 188-189). But the most prominent thing to realize is sin is the nature of all of mankind. “For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, as it is written: “None is righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:9-10 NIV).
Meanwhile, Sue Snell, another popular girl who had earlier laughed at Carrie, begins to feel remorseful about her participation in the locker room antics. With the prom fast approaching, Sue convinces her boyfriend, Tommy Ross, one of the most popular boys in the school, to ask Carrie to the prom. Carrie is suspicious but accepts, and makes a red velvet gown. Carrie's mother won't hear of her daughter doing anything so "carnal" as attending a school dance, as she believes that sex in any form is sinful, even after marriage. She also reveals that she knows about Carrie's telekinetic powers, which she considers a form of witchcraft – it seems that they appear every third generation in her family. Carrie, however, is tired of hearing that everything is a sin. She wants a normal life and sees the prom as a new beginning.
Furthermore, Carrie Bishop is very similar to everyone else on earth. She, although seemingly tolerant, feels superior to those of the African-American ethnicity. This is a lack of education on the part of the human race. She openly admits this in the novel. "I went to Doctor Booker with many doubts, I am ashamed to say. I suppose that at first I looked on him with the same superiority with which the Ohio doctor had plagued me" (Giardina 166). Over time, she became knowledgeable of Dr. Booker and the other black people in Annadel. Carrie learned that all humans are the same in most respects.

Pride leads character’s to commit reckless actions and believe that he or she is greater than someone or something else. Two works of literary merit which feature the sin of pride are Paradise Lost and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines sin as “an offense against religious or moral law”. People have many motivations to sin: greed, self-gain, and pleasure being prominent examples. In “The Scarlet Letter”, Hester Prynne is convinced that her husband is not coming to meet her at their new home in the colonies because she believes that he may have died. She then has an affair setting in motion the events of the story. In “Frankenstein”, Victor Frankenstein idolizes scientific knowledges thereby leading him to create and abandon his monster; this results in the deaths of three of Victor’s loved ones. In “Idylls of the King”, Pelleas becomes the Red Knight of the North after he experiences rejection by Ettarre and after Guinevere’s unfaithfulness to King Arthur is exposed. By using examples from “The Scarlet Letter”, “Frankenstein”, and “Idylls of the King” I will make the case that the initial sin of a person creates situations which cause

In Christianity, there are seven deadly sins: Pride, Hate, Gluttony, Sloth, Lust, Greed, and Envy. If one holds one of these traits, they’ll be sentenced to hell or have to fight for themselves, to prove their purity… These sins show themselves in many novels, though they shine through more prevalently in four books in particular. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee presents the sin of anger through extremist bias and racism. Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare holds the deadly sin of pride through declining to talk the conflict out, which ends in numerous deaths. Silas Marner by George Eliot only shines through with the sin of greed, as the characters care only about their money and/or fame and belongings. Finally, Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer symbolizes lust, as so many mistakes cost lives of others due to wanting to summit or wanting to conquer their own beast on the mountain.

If we use the Weslyan definition of sin we find that there are four elements that lead to sin a personal voluntary act. The first of these is to use God as a standard. He is perfect and flawless, as we should strive to be. The second is man as a free personality. God gave us free will to decide our own actions; He did not just make us drones. The third makes sin a live option. It is something that is always there and we can always choose to do what God would have us do or go against His will. The fourth is a deed committed. This goes back to the third one. Sin is a willful act against God. We must choose right or wrong.
