Ever Simmering Fluid – Six Sentence Story

The heretic hunters smirked as the paralyzed man was slowly lowered through the roof to the Master’s feet. Their ever simmering fluid of righteousness popped its cork when they heard the Master declare, “Your sins are forgiven.”

Some thought, “Just who does he think he is?” They argued that only the demon possessed would say stuff like that.

The Master waited for the heretic hunters to catch their breaths. The paralyzed man waited also since he couldn’t do much of anything until he first heard words, spoken with the proper authority, like, “Arise, pick up your bed, and walk.”


Denise offers the word “fluid” to be used in this week’s Six Sentence Stories.

For what really happened see Luke 5:17-24.

  1. Love your use of “heretic hunters”. This is eye opening as our current day “heretic hunters” are out in full force.

    I am heading up to Murphy NC this morning. Please pray for traveling mercies.

  2. It’s so “human nature” to be on the watch for people who are breaking our –and of course God’s — rules. Were the Pharisees so convinced they were on the side of truth, I wonder, or did they have qualms at times?

    1. For some forgiving takes forever even if it might appear to be easier than healing.

      I liked how your story progressed to the foot rub at the end.


  3. ‘Heretic hunters’ what a cool term/concept in a story! So much potential while maintaining a certain ambiguity.

    (took me a while, you’re usually, like in the top row of Sixes… lol)
