Sample text

In my eyes is a kind of holy rapture, as if singing the sweet strains of the hymns of the first advent had temporarily transformed me into an angel. As I look at myself through this Kodak time tunnel, I recall feeling transported to heaven itself. I remember wanting to be holy and good as I sat dutifully in church beside the widow Mrs. Perkins, letting her call me her “pew pal” even though my brothers snickered. I remember coffee hour, where I could eat all kinds of rich, sweet donuts even though it wasn’t breakfast time, and listen to the cacophony of the church women as their red-lipsticked lips vibrated with gossip.

So Satan unfit himself for a holy heaven, and as there was no more place for him, he was “cast … as a profane thing Out of the mountain of God” (Ezekiel 28:16). The book of Revelation describes this cosmic confrontation between opposing spirits and their ideologies in these words: “War broke out in heaven: Michael6 [Christ] and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:7–9).

It wasn’t the commandments that got to me; it was the motivation God enjoined for obedience to them. ” God was everything soft, warm, and congenial. He epitomized what was right, pure, and innocent. Yet here He was laying claim to an emotion so dark that I was forbidden to harbor it. While jealousy lived only in my heart’s inner recesses, repressed and regarded with guilt and shame, God was displaying His own jealousy as if it were something of which to be proud. ” I was at once repulsed and intrigued by it, yet didn’t have a clue about how to reconcile it with the warm, fuzzy picture I’d been taught.
