An Unpardonable Sin



Once upon a time in a place much like where you live today, there lived two friends. One was named Jessica, the other Alba.

Alba had committed an unpardonable sin. She didn’t know that Jessica still held a grudge. She didn’t know that the only reason that Jessica said things were cool was so that Alba won’t see it coming when she would have her revenge.

Jessica’s Mum knew all about it and she did all she could to persuade her daughter not to take revenge. She told her that the same way Jesus forgives us of our sins is the same way we should forgive others of the wrongs that they do us. But Jessica told her Mum that what Alba did to her was unpardonable and couldn’t go unpunished.

Jessica’s Mum tried to explain to her that it is not our place to punish people for the bad things they do or have done to us but Jessica would hear nothing of it. Nothing her Mum would do or would say would dissuade her from taking revenge. She would pretend to be Alba’s true friend so Alba’s guard won’t be up when she’s going to strike. If there was any hope that Jessica would forgive Alba, she would have to get even first.

Then again, when you get even with someone who wronged you, it means you didn’t forgive that person. Your getting even was your seal of unforgiveness and an end to further attempts to get revenge because you have satisfied your thirst to get revenge. So I guess there was no hope that Jessica would forgive Alba.

Jessica’s moment came when she, Alba and some other friends attended a high society dinner party. Jessica slipped a substance into Alba’s plate of food that was to make her immediately defecate where she was.

The point was to embarrass Alba in the worst possible way.

The plan worked out well, Alba felt seriously embarrassed but the host of the party saw when Jessica slipped the drug into Alba’s food but it was too late to stop Alba from taking it.

Even though Alba was embarrassed, everyone was kind to her, they showed her pity and compassion, but as for Jessica; after the host explained to all his guests that it was Jessica that did it, Jessica was treated with resentment, she was looked upon as an evil and heartless person. People said that if she can do this to her best friend who knows what she’s capable of doing to someone else.

Jessica lost every last one of her friends that day all because she had refused to forgive. She believed the wrong done against her was unpardonable. Like it could be any worse than all the sins she has committed that Jesus Christ still died for.



THE END

I Gotta Be Hip & Cool



Once upon a time, in a part of America dominated by Hip Hop lovers, their lived a dude everyone called Swifty. He was raised by Christian parents and was shown right from wrong. However, he craved to be like everybody else who didn’t have a Christian background. He craved to be cool, so he reinvented himself or should I say, Hip-Hoppified himself so he can blend in with everybody else who loved and lived secular Hip Hop.

Sadly, that way of life incites building habits that flatten one’s pockets. It pressures one to spend more than they earn.

Swifty had already finished his pay cheque on extremely expensive clothes and platinum crested sneakers. He was glad how people looked at his leg anytime he passed by. His iced – out sneakers was sure pulling a lot of attention.

However, like all things in Hip Hop it was getting that look that a fads gets before it passes away. He needed something new. Something so cool that it would catch everyone’s attention and make them say “Whoa!”

Swifty slept on it, considering the fact that he had no more money. He later got the idea the following morning that what he needs is a super fly car. A customized car. A car crested with ice on the outside and flushed on the inside with all the latest gadgets. That is what he needed. But the money? – He had no money – He needed money.

Swifty slept on that one too and the next day he got the idea that he should kidnap some rich kid and ask for ransom. Besides if any of his Hip Hop friends found out, they would only say, “Whoa! That’s so Gangsta Hommie. You are so COOL!” Thus, more coolness points for him.

Swifty ended up kidnapping a kid from a prep school extremely rich people sent their kids to. It was more difficult that he taught it would be but he did it. He succeeded.

All the while he was hearing what he was sure was the voice of God telling him not to do it, but big deal he had heard that voice so many times before anytime he wanted to do something wrong. It was just God being God, that’s all.

However, it wasn’t all.

Unfortunately, for Swifty, he had kidnapped the President’s son.

The CIA, the FBI and the police, plus a few top secret agencies we don’t know about each had a tracking device attached to every item of clothing the President’s son wore.

They were tracked and Swifty was arrested. He had a lot of Jail time to think about how unwise it is to be obsessed with looking cool.
