Review: Even Hell Has Standards: Pride by Chantal Noordeloos

Book description:

Sometimes life brings out the worst in a person, but Adolf Zakerny was born for evil. After a life of torment and murder, all in the name of Hell, it’s time for Zakerny to take his place amongst the demons. Will the blood he spilled appease the charismatic Lord of Hell, or will Zakerny’s Pride come to a fall?

‘Pride’ is the first of seven short stories in the ‘Even Hell Has Standards’ series, where Chantal Noordeloos takes the reader through the darker side of human nature, and it’s road to redemption. This is Hell as you’ve never seen it before.

——————————————————————————————-

Adolf Zakerny spends his entire life being evil and killing everyone he comes into contact with. When he dies, he enters Hell full of pride in the evil deeds he’s committed during his life. He enters Hell expecting to be congratulated for his evil deeds by the Lord of Darkness himself, and what happens next is horrifying and not at all what he wants.

I enjoyed this short story because it was different. Satan isn’t the same Satan portrayed in most books and you really cheer when you find out what happens to old Adolf. Chantal has a beautiful, vivid writing style that brings the story to life and makes you feel like you’re standing in Hell.

Pride is the first in a series of the seven deadly sins, and I can’t wait to see what else Chantal has in store for us.

  1. I KNOW WHAT I BELIEVE, DO NOT CONFUSE ME WITH THE TRUTH-BY STEVE FINNELL

    Why do so many believe they are smarter than God? If you change the meaning of Scripture you must believe you know more than God.

    Proverbs 11:2 When pride comes, then comes dishonor, But with the humble is wisdom. (NASB)

    When pride is the primary attribute of the person searching for God’s truth, confusion is the result.

    TRUTH: Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. (NASB)

    PRIDEFUL INTERPRETATION: He who has believed and has not been baptized shall be saved.

    TRUTH: Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; (NASB)

    PRIDEFUL INTERPRETATION: For by grace alone you have been saved and God has imputed faith as a gift to those selected for salvation so they might believe.

    TRUTH: Peter said to them, “Repent and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (NASB)

    PRIDEFUL INTERPRETATION: Repent and be baptized because your sins were forgiven the minute you believed. You received the gift of the Holy Spirit the moment you believed and spoke in tongues. Speaking in tongues was evidence of your salvation.

    TRUTH: Romans 6:4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in the newness of life.(NASB)

    PRIDEFUL INTERPRETATION: Therefore we have been buried with Him by pouring, sprinkling or immersion in water into death. Sprinkling and pouring mean a burial.) We were already walking in newness of life because we were saved before water baptism.

    TRUTH: John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way , and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.(NASB)

    PRIDEFUL INTERPRETATION: Jesus said to him, “I am one of many ways to the Father, do not judge other religious beliefs.”
