Fiction vs. Doctrine

If you've seen the youtube video, you already know this stuff.
If you haven't and don't feel like reading all this,
click the link and save yourself some time and reading.

Doctrine is one of those words that you don’t often hear in everyday conversation, but once you’ve heard it used in a sentence you pretty much understand its meaning. Not wanting to take anything for granted, I will put this notion aside briefly to explain what doctrine is. Doctrine is a set of rules and or principles that is taught as part of a belief system, whether it be philosophical, religious, or political.

The story of Eternal Curse: Giovanni’s Angel is a fictional story with a basis in one particular religious doctrine. I’m obviously influenced by the things I know and have been exposed to throughout my life. Fiction in story telling is like painting a picture; you can make the picture look however you want, but it may still get interpreted in many different ways.
I hope that those who have an appreciation for Judeo Christian philosophy will not get too bogged down by my lack of detail and accuracy; and will instead just enjoy the story. For those unfamiliar with Judeo Christian philosophy, I suspect they will have no problem just enjoying the story, as long as they don’t read it trying to find something that isn’t there. - Day 38 complete.
