The situations people often find themselves in - such as a new home, new ideas and powers; mold the opinions they already have, causing people to judge others, or have a change in attitude. In reading both John Dane’s memoir and Nathaniel Bacon’s “Declaration,” the reader can see that Dane’s attitude on God and his Puritan believes have shifted, while Bacon seems to be in a race for power. In John Dane’s memoir, he explains to us the type of life he led, up until he found what he had been searching for - to discover what he could actually do for God and his mercy.
