The Devil's Beatitudes

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 or two 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.
