John Proctor died and left his loving wife children and still unborn child for honor Proctors actions could be seen as selfless of selfish Proctors wife and children were left so that a name would not be tarnished Proctor wanted his children to have a father and a name they could be proud of He didnt want his unborn child to be shunned even before it was born In 1692 honor in Gods eyes was extremely important Proctor was not going to sign a paper that said he had made a deal with the devil because that in its self maybe seen as making a deal with the devil to keep him from death He had made good with God and nothing would change his decision Proctor decided to keep his honor in the community by refusing to tell lies He rejected the offer and he would not say that any of his neighbors or friends had dealt with the devil Proctors actions were selfish because he had to keep his honor and didnt necessarily think about the repercussions to his family Proctors children didnt have a father because he didnt sign a piece of paper Proctors name may have been cleared in later years He could have changed it all if he would have handed over the paper The minister was encouraging him to lie John Hale a righteous minister is saying that lies to stay on this earth will still sit on Gods favor Why couldnt Proctor lie If Proctor had confessed then he would have been a role model for the others They would have to have faith that in the near future their names would be cleared All of the good doings of Rebecca Nurse could have continued to benefit the community Whether or not what John Proctor did was right he did it for honor a word almost obsolete in todays society
