The third characteristic is honesty, believing that if he tells the truth to the public then he might get the support of the community.

His dedication is on display throughout the play, as he is steadily stripped of position in society, his home, and his job for refusing to be silent about the town's unhealthy, contaminated Baths which is considered to be his central motivation.

In Miller’s All My Sons, Chris Keller is initially portrayed as the righteous and “holy” figure that pushes for societal responsibility and love for our fellow Man. Chris’s appearance of Christ-like goodness is slowly peeled off as the play progresses when his hypocrisy is revealed through various methods such as the contrast between his insistent calls for social responsibility and his revelation of self-interest and suppression of truth; offering audiences the possibility that Chris may not be less guilty or a better person than anyone. In addition, Miller problematizes Chris’ ideals through his persistent pursuit for justice and morality that irrevocably sacrifices the family unit, which holds Chris responsible for destroying his own family in his relentless chase of his own obsession with his own set of ideal values. Finally, the neighbors function as the Greek chorus sheds light on Chris’ involvement in his father’s crime through the suppression of truth and omission of actual action to reveal Keller’s crimes. Hence, Chris Keller has every reason to feel as guilty as his father because while Keller’s guilt lay with his wartime misdeeds, his guilt lies in his hypocrisy, betrayal of the family and his implicit participation in Keller’s crime.
The interplay of faith and reason in the trial of Job is similar to that of Abraham (and the story of his son), as they are both put to trial in order to test their faithfulness to God. Even though this ‘test’ is beyond logical understanding, reason becomes overridden by their steadfast belief in God, meaning, although God presented challenges that seemed unreasonable to his believers, Abraham and Job both kept faith in Him, even if it meant losing their loved ones and properties, all for the sake of keeping God alive in their life. In detail, Job is a well-respected, god-fearing man who is very devout to his faith. There came a time when Satan approached God so that he may put Job to the test and prove to Him that his faithful servant was only loyal because of his abundance in material wealth. What seems incomprehensible to reason is why God, an almighty and good being, would let Satan freely oppress Job, an innocent man.
