Christianity—The Old Testament—says, “For God did not spare angels when they sinned but cast them into Hell and committed them to chains of gloomy darkness to be kept until the Judgment.” And modern Orthodox Rebbeim believes that “Angels don’t have free will and are pre-programmed to perform certain duties. When an angel’s duty is completed, the angel ceases to exist.”
But what if an Angel—as it is sometimes with Humans—found renewed purpose through discovering free will and redemption by not accepting an imposed (self or otherwise) Hell.
What if one man’s path to salvation was through trying to solve the mystery of an apparent ‘jumper’ suicide attempt. A young woman that cannot be identified that no one cares about, who disappears and he finds out what happened to her.
That they both have fallen doesn’t matter… it’s that they got up.
“Run my dear,
That may not strengthen
Your precious budding wings.”
Sometimes there’s a reason for what’s happened—what happens—to you. And what you’re called upon to do… or that you don’t do, can have life-changing consequences.
“The only way out is through.”
