God: “After all I’ve done for humans, why do they still prefer you?”
Satan: (Big Grin) “Because *I* make them HAPPY! I get them addicted to my intermittent pay-offs. Yeh, my happiness may be short-lived and infrequent, but, oooh, the highs! And the happiness you promise, well I have made Your happiness seem too difficult to achieve, too elusive, not worth the journey. You can’t top the pleasures that I provide!” (Another Big Grin)
God: “Hmmm. You’ve got a great thing going. Or so it seems. But, my initial investment, that little seed spark I implanted deep within each one… it has never failed me yet.” (Calm, assured smile.) “You keep playing with them as long as they need. I will continue to shine my light and be here for each of my children when they turn to me, doubting your sincerity. You know, with this kind of set-up, WE ALL WIN! You get to temporarily reign, even over those who BELIEVE they are close to me. Humans get to play the mortal game of contrast, sometimes receiving windfalls of glory, power, and control as they bring more with them into your kingdom. But, the way I’ve established my investment… You watch. Your B.S. will inevitably be discovered for what it is, a scheming counterfeit. But, your very B.S. will provide the fertilizer that will finally help my Light to grow and develop these precious seeds I implanted within my eternal children. Yes, you just wait. They will grow into fruitful Trees of LIFE. Just you watch. (Another nodding smile.) You see, I Know the quality of seed I implanted. Earth’s soil is rich with opportunity. We both know that your fertilizer is second to none. My warmth and the living water of Truth that I gently rain through the tears you provide… well… Eventually, each one will come home. Now, That’s a GREAT INVESTMENT! We ALL profit!
Satan stands, nods, reaches out his hand. God stands and embraces Satan in a great bear hug, saying: “Here, I’m paying! The drinks are on Me!”
In my pursuit of Real Truth, I have given up everything. Crawling through the “eye of the needle,” I have learned the *mysteries* and am now giving my life to assist YOU to dis-cover Who *YOU* really are, along with your unique gift to offer humanity. As you learn to seek (in the right place and with purified intent), you WILL find treasures of lasting value, along with every promised reward. Together, we will establish a society of humane beings and live life ALIVE, on PURPOSE, and with a sociality unequaled… because we will each BE and view each other as equally and profoundly DIVINE! Please… catch this Hope and Vision and join with me.
