Love Delusions is the third Short Story from Spiritual Confusions, our Collection of five short stories under print at Tâ-Shalom Editions, The books to liberty.
Abdul is rejected as a son-in-law because of his poverty. Convinced that God loves the poor and the rich of the same love, he resists his opponents but fails, falls into resentment and depression. After months of suffering, he breaks rules and goes out for liberty into the Savannah. Once therein, a curious man kindles his curiosity. Following his traces, he is trapped by a secret society ritual. He feels he is the lamb of the sacrifice and wants to flee, too late. Will he survive finally?
What is the book about?
In life, Christian should faithfully obey God commands at all conditions. The one who does so builds upon the Roc as Jesus teaches in His Word. Whoever faithfully obeys God commands grows spiritually and prospers continually in God’s glory.
But against faithful obedience, hard times will come. The devoted Christian will certainly be tested in his faith, still, Jesus announces that whoever perseveres in sufferings (because of His name) till the end will be saved and will receive his reward from God.
What should we do then when sufferings are harsh and unexpected? What to do when the suffering is violent and break our will to fight? What should we do when everything around us dictates us our defeat? Even in such condition, we should keep the Commands of God. Only Jesus Commands can lead a man to social and spiritual victory.
Love Delusions encourages the Christian understand that all his conditions are under God-control. At the end of the reading, he should admit that everything works for the good of those who trust in God.
Why would Abdul sink into resentments after love deception? Why not trust God as the one watching over the intention of his opponents? Abdul should have done better remaining peaceful and confident in God faithfulness. The end of the story keeps the same message for him.
