In the third book of the series, TA’AM, the heroine often seems to be motivated by revenge. For a Christian fiction novel, this may appear to contradict the Bible, especially in light of the following:
Deuteronomy 32:35 “To me belongeth vengeance, and recompense; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste.” KJV
Matthew 5:39 “But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.” KJV
Romans 12:19 “Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.” KJV
So, what is revenge doing in a Christian novel? One thing that most of the readers may not have picked up on is that TA’AM is not a Christian for much of the book. While she has read the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, and believes that Christ is the Messiah, she has not given herself over to Him. The other thing to note is that the New Testament clearly states that we are in a battle against evil.
Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” KJV
This means that there is an on-going war and that the enemy is not human or even animal life as we know it. It is not only permissible but mandated that we fight against evil.
Interested to know how the battle fares? I recommend that you start with the first book AURA. You can download AURA for FREE on AMAZON.
