Horror Story Assignment

Senior classes were given the assignment to write a horror story and allowed no restriction. As soon as I heard of this assignment I thought, “Yes! Finally my chance to show people how gory and gruesome of things I can imagine!” I told my youth minister of this assignment and the next thing he said was, “That sounds ungodly”. I started thinking and realized how ungodly it really was. Then, he told me, “You should write about the rapture and the people that will be left behind, now that’s scary.” I told him it was. I continued to think and decided I was going to write my horror story about after the rapture happens and the things that will be taking place during the seven years Satan reigns on the Earth. I knew I couldn’t write seven pages …show more content…
The outcome would be to take on an alternative assignment that would be equivalent to the horror story so, I decided to go ahead and write a seven page essay of why I cannot write the horror story. Like I have mentioned, this assignment does go against my beliefs in what the Word of God says and what God commands us to do. The problem with creating a horror story about the end of times with a superhero and villain is I would have to add things to the original story and the Bible tells us not to add or take away from God’s commands (Deuteronomy 4:2, 12:32, John 14:15). In order to live right and follow God’s path, we cannot pick and choose the rules we want to follow and not follow. We have to follow ALL in order to get God’s blessings. We get blessed anyways because no one is perfect and although we follow God and get saved, we still all sin and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23), no matter age, sex, race, or size (Romans 10:12). Although we all sin and fall short, we should still try our best to live how Jesus did (1 John 2:6, Luke …show more content…
Because we are made in His image, we are supposed to be merciful to others, just like God is (Luke 6:36). God tells us that we will be blessed if we show mercy because then, we will have mercy shown to us (Matthew 5:7). Some people ask, “Why doesn’t God show mercy to the people who suffer?” Well, the Bible invites us into suffering because when we join the sufferings of Christians, we become a good soldier of Christ Jesus (2 Timothy 2:3). Not just a soldier, but a good soldier. God allows suffering because He loves us. What kind of father would He be if He did not punish us? (Hebrews 12:6-8) He punishes us in order to correct and better us (Psalm 119:71). When we are punished, it is for us to learn. Therefore, suffering leads to knowledge. We should give glory to God for the ability and the gift to obtain knowledge. The Bible tells us that we glory in our sufferings because suffering produces perseverance (Romans 5:3). When we suffer, we want to continue to keep striving for something
