What a powerful allegory! And the Black Lake is an actual character in this story, filling the role of antogonist extremely well. This is awesome.

What a great view of Christianity, God, Jesus and Satan. You did very well. Many non-believers would be able to understand this.

I love it.

This began in such an inviting manner, it was quite easy to continue reading to the end. Oh, how true the lure of the deceptive world of sin, but praise God, He knows we are weak and is always willing to reach out to us. I really liked this story.

What a great allegory! ^_^
"The Son is the only one to have ever conquered the evil that resides in Black Lake; therefore, He is the only one able to save another from it." Perfectly said. I'm going to direct a friend to this piece; she's been asking what makes Jesus so 'special.' ;-)

This is an excellent allegory; I might have actually kept it a bit shorter, and a bit more to the point, but that's just personal preference. Good luck!
WOW, this was captivating and well done. I loved it and the truth in its message.
So good! Loved the portrayal of sin and evil as a lake. Very creative.
You have a very cretive allegory.
