Emily Fraser Lord of the Flies: Religious Interpretations Genesis 2:8 - And the Lord planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and there he put the man he had formed. "He undid the snake-clasp of his belt, lugged off his shorts and pants, and stood there naked, looked at the dazzling beach and the water." (p. 5) The fire The sacred flame did also a greater work than all these. It gave inspiration and enthusiasm, and urged men on to achieve increasingly higher and greater things. "Jack knelt too and blew gently, so that the smoke drifted away, thickening, and a tiny flame appeared." (p.40) Genesis 4:16- Then Cain went away from the presence of the Lord and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden. "' I'm going off by myself. He can catch his own pigs. Anyone who wants to hunt when I do can come too.' [Jack] blundered out of the triangle towards the drop to the white sand." (p. 140) Colossians 1:13- He delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son. "Simon became inarticulate in his effort to express mankind's essential illness. Inspiration came to him." (p. 96) The Devil Himself The Lord of the Flies Ephesians 6:12- For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. "[Sam n' Eric] became motionless, gripped in each others arms, four unwinking eyes aimed and two mouths open." (p. 106) Luke 4:1- And Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness for forty days, being tempted by the devil. "' What are you doing here all alone? Aren't you afraid of me?" Simon Shook "There isn't anyone to help you. Only me, and I'm the beast.'" (p. 158)
