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.
Rose Red (who ultimately becomes Snow White in this retelling of the timeless fairy tale), is nearly overcome with the weight of her guilt, sorrow, and despair.
Is there any hope for her in this crisis of faith?
The Fairy Tale Parables
But being very vain, she was also very afraid of the return of the king and his son. So, having heard that she was to be the beloved bride of the king’s son, Adikema heaped exceptional abuse upon Rose Red, hoping to twist her with bitterness and crush her with despair. Little imps were sent to torment her, bringing with them their bags of temptations and fiery whips with which they could inflict pain and grief. The names of the imps were Impurity, Idolatry, Hatred, Selfish Ambition, Jealousy, Rage, Discord, Persecution, Hardship, Trouble, Waiting, Sorrow, Trials, and Sacrifice. They seemed to delight in causing anguish and hopelessness. The temptation that they brought with them to totally despair, along with the guilt and shame that she already carried, were so utterly crushing that Rose Red did not believe that she could go on.
