1. THE HERO. Aslan of the famed stories is both self-sacrificing and gracious. Narnia had sin within, and when Aslan came to rescue them, a new Narnia was formed. The dwarfs in the story used to love 'Aslan,' the ape. However, they were deceived because Shift, an ape, dressed his donkey friend Puzzle as a lion. When they realized the folly of their belief, the dwarfs didn't want a leader anymore. They were hurt. Wouldn't you be? A deity called Tash was believed to be their "god," but he was a terrible creature and was a leader of demons. Sound familiar? I thought so. The real Aslan, however, is a reminder that my Savior, Jesus, will destroy evil and the world finally WILL be perfect.
