But I always think that the best way to know is to love many things (Vincent va gough)Compare in which the two novels present the influence of God.
The ideology of God is expressed in many different contexts throughout the novel, many of the characters exploit the qualities of God and often became reliant on his power. However it can also be seen as something to fall back on or a foundation, this applies mainly to Kambili and Celie, two characters which suffer so many changes and the society are a few illustrates which are evident of God and his methods, this integrates. But the reasons and ideology behind it are not apparent.

It was a way of her expressing her hope from God.
The acknowledgement of God is seen as a big part of socialisation and learning to connect with spiritual things. In the Color Purple, Celie fails to emancipate herself from the family in which she is forced to call home: â€œYou better get used to it, I never get used to itâ€, but she believes than she can escape to another world with God, and end oppression from her patrichal family. This is in contrast to Kambili (Purple Hibiscus) who peruses equality through the obedience of her father: â€œit didnâ€™t matter, because I knew that when the tea burned my tongue, it burned Papaâ€™s love into meâ€. She believes that God is many things, and the tea is a symbol of God, assisting her in achieving love from her Dad. Kambili unlike Celie believed that her father is the key to ending her oppression and that through obedience, respect is gained., In both instances we see both Kambili and Celie being forced into submission from both of their fathers, but this is kind of abuse is approached differently, but Kambili is deceived into believing that her abuse is the only way to connect to love whereas Celie is blatantly being enforced to do something which goes against her will, that has no relevance to love. In terms of God and Religion, Kambili isnâ€™t a strong believer of God or religion and that affects her individual role in the novel has not being seen has important by her father, this is kind of the opposite with Celie who feels that Fonso is only obsessed with material gain and not God/love in this case affecting both of the individuals.
Many characters within the novel are oppressed by religion, whether itâ€™s by choice or they are enforced by others, they still submissive to God and its faith. Itâ€™s said that religion & God should only be expressed through love and appreciation, however the individual will not fulfil the experience of loving God, if it simply a chore. This lifestyle is made more vivid with Purple Hibiscus, has the importance of free expression is tested within family roles, Eugene is an exact example of disciplined ideology: "You cannot stop receiving the body of our lord. You know that." The father refuses any sort of excuse that is negative towards Christianity, he simply cant see any other religious views, and believes that his religion is the conventional and practical way to live life, One is able to see that God doesn't just influence the individuals actions, it also impacts how different households are run. The Colour Purple discusses Religious hardship in a more subtle approach, we are shown Celie almost fearful of Gods presence:"Dear God.. I am I have always been a Good girl", from her crossing out the line of "I am", this indicates that she wants to be completely honest with God, in order for her to reminisce of her sins, It also illustrates that she has grown tired of the way she is being treated, and is no longer ashamed of her lifestyle.
