Along with being an abolitionist, Stowe was a feminist, believing that all women should have power and influence. These three concepts are commonly expressed though out the novel, conveying her message to the audience. For further influence, the characters of Uncle Tom's Cabin are based on actual people and real events that occurred.
(Luke 6:27-28) For despite our unworthiness, God loved us and made the greatest sacrifice to prove it. God's Love for Mankind "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) God loves us so intensely that He purposed His Son to be unmercifully tortured, beaten, scorned, scrutinized and murdered ... all in the name of Love. He has bestowed His perfect love upon us, seeking those who are deemed the most wretched and alienated from Him that they may be saved. His is a redeeming love manifested in mercy and grace, for He cares for and help us when we are in need, and He accepts us and loves us even though we don't deserve it.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin is a deeply symbolic narrative depicting the lives of a group of black slaves in southern America and the slave owners and slave hunters that followed them through their lives. Author Harriet Beecher Stowe, a white woman, uses her striking narrative to raise philosophical and moral questions about the implications of the institution of slavery in mid-19th century America. Her novel touches on the limits of the human spirit and the common human connection that brings together all people, whites, blacks, men and women alike. Her work was designed and intended to shock and horrify readers with its blatant and vivid descriptions of the atrocities that blacks endured during this both, both free and enslaved alike. Her work was written after the passage of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, which made aiding any fugitive slave a federal crime.
Both decisions, though opposing, are sympathetically portrayed and seem appropriate to each character. The Christian model of behavior Stowe endorses is made clear by Uncle Tom's martyrdom and simple faith in the literal word of the bible. However the maternal model is less clear, since at times it seems to parallel the Christian model, and at other times , as in this case, it differs radically. Eliza runs away to protect her child's safety. Although Eliza's behavior, and the actions of the other strong female characters of the novel, could easily be understood by saying, "a mother of course would do anything for her child", this statement immediately puts the female characters' actions on a physical, real-life level, opposing them to the higher, spiritual choices of their male counter-parts.
In this book the slave women and also the slave owners wives were also forced to marry lovers that they did not love (O’ Connor 1). As in this book Uncle Tom decides to forgive all the wrong he has done and turn to God (O’ Connor 1). Uncle Tom decides to learn to the Bible and take advantage of that by writing letters to his kin (O’ Connor 1). Tom often fells that he should pass done his beliefs in God which makes him feel that he is (Yagmin 1). That is the reason Tom had prayer meetings to keep them on top of their Christianity in top shape (Yagmin 1).
Also, we can infer that Jane has not, until now, received a strict religious upbringing at Gateshead -- perhaps this can explain how Jane is able to express her hatred so freely and vocally. However, it is revealed later that Jane does know the Bible quite well when Mr. Brocklehurst come... ... middle of paper ... ...anding it at the time, she eventually adopted what had been said: 'You will come to the same region of happiness: be received by the same mighty universal Parent, no doubt, dear Jane.' Jane, as a child, grew from being ignorant of the loving and compassionate ways of Christianity; to an educated, thoughtful adult. Jane learned the basis of this from her friend, Helen. Although Jane largely ignored Helen's non-passionate outlook in life, she did in fact take the basis of loving someone else even if they hate you, as evident with Mrs. Reed.

Anne Hutchinson has long been seen as a strong religious dissenter who paved the way for religious freedom in the strictly Puritan environment of New England. Another interpretation of the controversy surrounding Anne Hutchinson asserts that she was simply a loving wife and mother whose charisma and personal ideas were misconstrued to be a radical religious movement. Since this alleged religious movement was led by a woman, it was quickly dealt with by the Puritan fathers as a real threat. Whatever her motives, she was clearly a great leader in the cause of religious toleration in America and the advancement of women in society. Although Anne Hutchinson is historically documented to have been banished as a religious dissenter, the real motive for her persecution was that she challenged the traditional subordinate role of women in Puritan society by expressing her own religious convictions.
