Parable of the angels

This is a story I use to explain the nature of authority to people with introverted sensing as a preferred language.

There was once a family of angels living on the outskirts of heaven consisting of a father, a mother, and a young boy who was just starting to get his wings. Having no free will, they never did anything morally wrong, but not being God they also didn’t have almighty power. So when they were attacked by demons one day, the parents didn’t have the strength to fight them off and were both killed. The young angel was taken to the underworld as a slave where he had a very difficult life until a miracle from God gave him a chance to escape. During that time, and for a long while afterward, the angel felt betrayed by his parents, even though they didn’t do anything wrong other than being created too weak to do the duty given to them by God. Failure felt like betrayal because, ultimately, the result was the same and children in pain aren’t comforted by excuses.

    So, your saying its Gods fault then, creating angels who cant fight off demons?
    That sounds fucked up, very fucked up,

  2. Power isn’t distributed equally amongst believers
