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!
