If I had been an angel at the start of time
Would I now be lying in bed
with the Devil?
(I was reading the first chapter of Patriarchs and Prophets a few days ago (‘entitled Why was Sin Permitted?’) and it made me think about how flaky I am. I’m stubborn with some things, but a lot of the time I’m easily swayed—it’s my nature as a people pleaser. I’ve got myself into a lot of stupid situations because I felt bad about saying ‘no’ and didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings…. I asked myself the question: would I have stood for God during the war in Heaven, or would I have been deceived by Lucifer’s words of discontent?
It was a scary thought for me, at least. Because I couldn’t answer it.)
