“Revealing the Mistakes of Puritanism” Proverbs 10:28 implies the idea of the universality of sin in saying “The prospect of the righteous is joy, but the hopes of the wicked come to nothing.” In “Young Goodman Brown”, Nathaniel Hawthorne illustrates this through Brown’s actions. When Brown lives a righteous life with good faith, his thoughts remain pure and happy. He has a wonderful wife, and he enjoys the presence of everyone. As he takes his walk into the forest and into evil ways, his hopes
