How life is different without faith? [HK]. It is a question that we as a Christian often wonder about the importance of faith gives us hopes in heaven and life [BRG]. Uncle Tom’s Cabin shows us how faith is very important for our hopes in daily life and how we act to our obstacles in life [TH].

She said “but, if you want to go there, you must not live idle, careless, thoughtless lives. You must be Christians" [E5]. Eva is trying to tell her concerns toward their soul to dwell in the heaven, that they can also go to heaven if they become a Christian and live as a Christian. In other words, she encourages them to be a Christian and have hope to go to heaven [R5]. When Eva asked St. Clare whether he is a Christian or not, St. Clare asked Eva back about being a Christian [CE6]. Eva answered “loving Christ most of all” [E6]. Eva’s answer shows St. Clare that his faith to Christ is the key to be in heaven. Eva is faithful enough that she becomes a spiritual guide to her own father [R6]. Just as having faith on Jesus Christ put us hope in going to heaven, so too faith gives us comfort by trusting in the Lord in going through life tribulations
