He treated Sam well and taught him the ropes when everyone else made fun of him as soon as he walked through the gym door.
He knows that God’s call for him, before he was even born, was to lead in worship. Many times we take what God’s call for our lives is and use it for what we think is more valuable to us. This truth was confirmed with him also in admitting the result of this choice; it led to unrest, uncertainty, and instability. His words were, “Because I was a born-again child of God, in a sense my life was a life of hypocrisy; calling
Academically the Saints was expected to do well in school because of who their parents were and family social status. The Roughnecks wasn’t at all concerned about how they performed in school.

There are, however, similarities. First of all, both men show a bias opinion of their surroundings. Dane does so in a subtle way, while Bacon flaunts his ideas, good or bad to everyone within shouting distance. We can see Dane’s biases in a quote from page sixty-two in Johnson: “God hath all along preserved and kept me all my days.” In this passage, it is evident that Dane’s opinion on everything will have a religious spin to it.

Although, putting myself in others position means that there is a risk of seeing myself as others would see you-not exactly as special as I expected.
