ORIGINAL FICTION: "Just Moments Before The End of the Age"

I must have been walking across campus when it happened.

It was a small bible college on the edge of Appalachia - pretty scenery, naïve girls, stolid minds. I hated the place, and it hated me, it and I were a poor marriage from the moment we’d met, but I’d made my bed and had no choice but to lie, cheat, and steal in it. I’d gone to a bigger, better state school before a nervous breakdown landed me here, the victim of loving parents who felt a Christian environment would be better for me than a secular one, I’d meet a better class of people, I’d get in less trouble, my mental wounds would heal more quickly here.

ORIGINAL FICTION: "What Price Pornography?" By Charlie Starr (2009)

Imagine that, when God made the heavens and the earth, He made several inhabited planets. Perhaps on some of those worlds, the “Adam and Eve” never fell. Perhaps on others there was a first sin that brought ruin as it did on our world, and God became a human being (or a Rigelian or Vulcan) on everyone one of those fallen worlds to save them as He did us. And maybe on one of those worlds everyone actually listened; they became that world’s version of Christians and established a vibrant and holy culture planet wide.
