The Devil Made Me Do It!

I found this in going through old church newsletters and thought it went well with this month’s theme — SIN!

The Devil’s Beatitudes

*Blessed are they who are too tired to assemble with the church on Sunday, for they cause the world to say, ‘The church is failing.’

*Blessed are they who are bored with the mannerisms and mistakes of the minister; for they will learn nothing from the sermon.

*Blessed is the church member who expects to be invited to his own church; for he is important to me.

*Blessed are they who are easily offended; for they get angry and stop doing God’s work.

*Blessed are they who do not give generously to God’s work and mission; for they are my helpers.

*Blessed is he who claims to love God but hates his brother; for he will be with me forever.

*Blessed are the troublemakers; they shall be called the children of Satan.

*Blessed is he who has not time to pray; he will be easy prey for me.
