In Paradise Forest

Once upon a time in the not so distant past there lived a young family named the Young family.

There was father, mother, son and daughter.

This young family lived in the forest known as Paradise Forest.


The father and son would go about their daily chores which consisted of cutting and gathering wood for the cookstove and fireplace and they would tend to the animals, fields, orchards and as well as help with the garden when they had time.


Mother and daughter would work in the garden, clean the house, wash laundry and cook the meals.


Everyone was happy and they loved their life in their cabin in Paradise Forest.


One day serpent slithered out from under his rock and was slithering about bored, cranky and angry at life as usual when suddenly he came upon this young family. Serpent saw how happy they were with their life, this made him more angry so he slithered over to government and said that the Young family were offensive to him because they claimed to be male and female, man and woman, mother and father and son and daughter.


Government thought that it isn't good that serpent was so offended, afterall, noone should offend another. So government wrote the Young family a letter stating that they can no longer use those gender labels. They must be neutral with their labels and identity.


Mother, father, son and daughter were upset about this. However, true to their nature they stuck to their beliefs and brought their hurt to Father God in prayer and they read His word in the bible.


Serpent being as sneaky and conniving as he is slithered up to their window and began to peek in. What he saw angered him even more. He saw them happily praying and reading and he overheard the young family still use words like mother, father, son and daughter.


“I can't believe they are still behaving like this” serpent hissed “why aren't they stopping and why aren't they angry?”.


Serpent continued to watch them, He got angrier with every passing minute when suddenly he saw the title of the book that the Young family was reading.


“That's it!” he exclaimed, “I will tell government that the Bible is offensive” he laughed and slithered away.


After meeting with government, serpent felt very proud and very sure of himself. He thought, “I've got them now, now they will be as miserable as I am, and that will bring me joy”.


The following week brother went to the mailbox at the end of their driveway and ran back to the house.

“mother, father we have another letter from government!” he yelled.


Father opened it and read that they must stop using the terms they have been using regarding themselves and only use neutral ones and they must get rid of the Bible as it too is offensive.


Once again and true to form they opened the Bible and they prayed.


Again, serpent slithered up to the window and watched and listened.

“ I don't believe it, they are still doing what government said not to” he hissed.


This time father heard him, “I can hear you serpent, you will not win” father said.

Serpent then slithered into the house.


Father, mother son and daughter put on their armor which father God gave them a long time ago and with sword and shield in hand they all looked at serpent and said, “in the name of Jesus get away from us and go where our Lord Jesus sends you”.


Serpent tried to strike but he couldn't open his mouth, he fought to stay but he felt himself getting pulled away, then fear and confusion filled his mind as he slithered faster than he ever did before, and out the window he went.

With blinding rage and confusion filling his mind he continued into the forest slithering faster than he ever had before, he wasn't paying attention where he was going when he went off a cliff falling to his death.


The young family continued to read the Word of our Father and they continued to speak with Him daily. Over time they continued to speak with others who lived in Paradise Forest about God and they prayed with them. They spoke of serpent and what he tried to do and the victory they had over him with God.


The next election the government was changed from the serpent controlled one to a Godly one. The Bible and prayer were brought back into government and in to the schools, and Paradise Forest truly became a paradise for all.

" T" , thank you for your comment. The end for the Christian is paradise, and in this world we must have on the armor of God and remain firm and faithful to Christ and continue to read the word of God and pray always.

I wish it was as easy in this world as in the paradise you portray for the actual Bible story doesn't end so well for the majority of humanity or the serpent :-/

Thanks Eric for your comment. I truly appreciate it.

Fantastic. This is a great way to approach some troubling issues of our world.

Right after school, in the school they allow a program for Christians. About 50 kids get together and do Bible study for an hour. My son loves the story of Noah at the moment but next week he will love the new study.

(and this is in California!)
