Thom Mollohan is an author, speaker, writer, teacher, pastor (of a wonderful family of Believers in Pathway Community Church!), former campus minister, previous church planter… blah, blah, blah. What he is especially proud of being, however, is a father to four awesome kids and a husband to an amazing woman! What he is most unworthy of being called is that of child and servant of God (Ephesians 3:8). Thom is the author of THE FAIRY TALE PARABLES (Classic Fairy Tales Pointing to God's Love and Truth), CRIMSON HARVEST (a Christian thriller novel on the power of God’s grace to overcome darkness), and A HEART AT HOME WITH GOD (a collection of "kingdom of God lessons" learned in the context of family life.
Jesus, when He endured death on the cross, did so in our place for our breaking of God's law. He took upon Himself the weight of death so that we could be made forgiven, free, and whole. He did so in order that we could be made alive forever with Him in heaven.
"When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: 'Death is swallowed in victory.' 'O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?' The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." - 1 Corinthians 15:54-57 ESV
The Fairy Tale Parables
The prince knelt beside her and lifted her feverish head. He softly placed his lips to hers and kissed her, taking into himself, as he did so, all of the poison that filled her dying body. Suddenly she felt new life again. She knew that he had taken the sting of death from her and was bearing it now himself. He touched her face tenderly and then he was overcome by death, his body slumping to the floor.
