The Devil's Beatitudes


If the Devil were to write his Beatitudes, they would probably look like this:


Blessed are those who are too tired, too busy,
too distracted to spend an hour once a week
with their fellow Christians in church;

They are my best workers.

Blessed are those Christians who wait to be asked
and expect to be thanked;

I can use them.

Blessed are the touchy; with a bit of luck,
they may stop going to church;

They are my missionaries.

Blessed are those who are very religious
but get on everyone's nerves;

They are mine forever.

Blessed are the troublemakers;

They shall be called my children.

Blessed are those who have no time to pray;

They are easy prey for me.

Blessed are the gossipers;

For they are my secret agents.

Blessed are those critical of church leadership;

For they shall inherit a place with me in my fate.

Blessed are the complainers;

I'm all ears for them.

Blessed are you when you read this and think
it is about other people and not yourself;

I've got you!
