Me: That doesn’t work for me. You know me. I studied my Bible, memorized scripture and prayed everyday. I wanted nothing more than to love and please God.
Christian: You really need to try doing that again.
Me: To be honest, it was when I was right in the middle of reading and praying that the thought came to me that I needed to scrutinize my own beliefs in the same way I had always scrutinized other beliefs. I had never done that before and it came to me that I should. What was that? Why would I think of that when I was closest to God?
Christian: Well, I hate to say this and I don’t do it to hurt you, but that was Satan. You entertained his voice. Look where you are now.
Me: Silence… okay, oh my god…I need to go now…
