Hans Memling, Christ at the Column, c. 1485-1490

Our thoughts are with those of us who cannot get to God. God exists in all human hearts no matter how evil they are. Someone needs to know what goes horribly awry. There are those who extend their welcome with God. And then those who God praises. Some people who are participating in the work God wants them to, do suffer from evil people who cannot understand why they too do not want to participate in their evil doings. The sacred people do not understand why you would want to be evil. You would have to be fairly below average intelligence to think an evil pathway would be the way forwards, however God would not want them anywhere near his divine work as all they would do is be a nuisance to God. Why dance for Satan? When the only reward is an evil pathway, premise Satan deliberately could ask for their souls, if they have them. The rest would not be worth having in Gods divine house. They must be human but God would see them as fiends.
