Religion in the novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn not only becomes the main evil, it provides readers with another perspective that judges, lies, deceives, and sins ironically to the point that religion is not seen as a belief, but another useless tool to spread more evil in a world that already dwells in sin. Although quite superstitious, Huck intrigues readers to understand religion’s forcible nature; consequently, they see that Huck actually exhibits greater morality than those that seek to instill a moral code within him. Twain is quick to point out the errors in religion. Even in church, “ornery-preaching” (Twain 83) and evil intentions cause Huck to question the reason for religion. “As slavishly as others follow the formal rules of Christian culture” (Martin 102), Huck relies upon himself.
