Jekyll And Hyde

In the story of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dr. Jekyll is a peaceable man with many friends and a positive stature in the community. He has personal struggles with battling the “good and evil” within him and has tried to repress his evil desires all his life. Through a series of events, he eventually caves into his evil personality known as Mr. Hyde, who is violent, malicious, and thrives off of fleshly pleasures. This classic tale illustrates the imagery of the double-minded or “two-souled” man the Bible describes in James 1, verses 7–8. In the same way that we battle with standing in faith and doubting, Dr. Jekyll battled with his spirit and his flesh to the point of becoming two people.
