Dear Disciples,

I'm just writing to let you know that you're doing just fine. I become excited every time I see you going to your places of worship. I like to see you attend church on a regular basis. Please continue to do so. Some of my other children may consider religious rituals unimportant, or even a waste of time. I enjoy seeing you participate in such activities. It makes you much more effective in furthering my kingdom. And don't be discouraged by the others who are in church with you. Not everyone is there for the same reason. Some are opposed to my work here on earth. Just ignore them and continue to do the things that bring me glory.

I love it when you pray your long, magnificent public prayers. You make such a good impression on others. Never underestimate the outward appearance of holiness. Many will see how godly you seem to be and will admire you. It is easier to influence others when admired by them, so keep doing those things that gain respect. When you do a charitable deed, please make it known. A good deed that goes unnoticed cannot be commended, and therefore, cannot be used to increase admiration. Don't be ashamed. Proclaim your good works and seek the esteem of many. When you are honored, I am honored.

Your knowledge of scripture has also been noticed. You have been studying very diligently, and I am pleased. Many of my other children scarcely read the bible, but you, my most devoted disciples, recognize it as a powerful tool for the furtherance of my kingdom. You have learned to use it wisely. I love the way you have been able to gain advantage in many religious debates with those who oppose our message. Just be sure to continue to follow my lead regarding the use of certain passages. Reading the scriptures without my direction can be a very dangerous thing and could lead to disaster. Many disciples have fallen away from following me and actually joined the other side because they read the bible without my guidance. It is a very powerful, but dangerous tool. Be careful with it.

I would now like to single out those servants of mine who have become professional ministers. You reverends, bishops, elders, and priests have done a remarkable job for me. As in everything, there are ministers who are opposed to my goals, but you have been outstanding in your efforts to counteract their work. You have gained a following and have led them wherever I desire.

Also, dear ministers, continue to redefine things according to my instructions. My kingdom has made tremendous advances through your ability to change the meaning of words, and modify the appearance of values. If I would have told you 50 years ago that one-day people would accept the killing of unborn children as acts of compassion for the mothers, you would not have believed me. But that is exactly what has happened. By merely twisting words and reshaping definitions much can be accomplished. Have you noticed what I have done with the word love? They don't call me the father of prevarication for nothing.

Continue to cooperate with my spiritual servants. I am encouraged by your acceptance of my spirit of delusion. It makes my work in you so much easier when you allow this servant of mine to influence your opinions. And it seems that some of your major religious denominations have not only accepted, but have actually embraced the spirit of perversion. It is good to know that I have faithful servants in every religious group.

It is also heartening to see so many of my servants in every political party and ideology. I like the way some people consider themselves "holy and righteous" just because they belong to a particular political group. I have always used politics to serve my agenda. Two thousand years ago I used two "religious" political parties to accomplish my goals: the Sadducees and Pharisees. I made both groups think that they were doing "His" will, while the whole time I had them both doing mine. Everything was going just as I had planned until --- well --- I would rather not mention it. (It upsets me to even think about it.)

In closing, I would like to leave you with some words of encouragement. Keep going to church and looking holy. It's wonderful to have so many of my servants pretending to be His servants. Disciples like you, who serve Him in word but not deed, make me happiest. You have reduced "serving-Him" to nothing more than attending a church, and that gives me a warm feeling all over. I will share that warmth with you some day (if you know what I mean). Until then, keep up the good work.

Yours untruly,

The Angel of Light

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Bob, This comment/critique is not addressed to this article alone, but to all you have written. I have laughed all afternoon, to the point of tears. I have been rightly convicted as I recognized myself in some of your characters...and then I laughed some more.This is incredibly wonderful stuff and you have surely stepped up to the plate with courage to put it out there...Praise God for that humor and insight to clearly expose many very sensitive subjects.I hope we see a lot more of you work...or should I say "play"...It's obvious you love what you do! Thankyou,Bob! Pat
