Objects to symbolize Grace The three objects which I chose to reflect Grace was a corvette, bible and projector. It may not be obvious which of the subjects these reflect now, but hopefully by the end of this paper you will have a better understanding. First I will talk about race. It was difficult to find an object, but I thought about what divides a race besides the color of their skin. Christians read the bible while Muslims read Koran. Catholics pray on rosaries and Buddhists pray to Buddhist statues.
In the United States most Christians are white, most Muslims are from the mid-eastern region, most Catholics are Hispanic and most Buddhists are Asian. I chose the King James Bible because it is implying Christian which is implying white American. This is our modern day society and always has been. Religion signifies your race a majority of the time. Class was an easier subject of Grace. Most rich people drive nice cars and live in nice houses so what better to signify class than the American sports car.
Corvettes are a price and flashy car that is driven by people who are well off. Driving this car is holding a sign of prosperity. Not everyone who is well off drives one, but when you spot a new one then you can bet a hundred to one that the person does not have financial problems and is in the upper middle class. An example of the upper class could be a Hummer or Ferrari and example of the lower class would be a twenty five year old car that breaks down every other day. Last we will discuss gender. In my opinion these objects could be totally different with every person in the class because it is all perspective.

Thankfully, God " grace, promises, and chastisement assure Christians that once they are saved, they can never ...
I took an example out of my life. I have a three thousand dollar projection television. I love it and its quality, but my girlfriend thinks it is the stupidest object anyone could waste money on. All of my friends like it while hers aren’t so thrilled. I’m not saying this is an example of what the majority of the population considers right, I just took an example of my life and my perspective and used it. Race, class and gender are three very important roles in our society.
I picked the corvette, bible and projector because they play a role in my life and in my opinion signify these three subjects.
