This concludes my study of Jesus the Christ Chapter 13...All quotes are taken from this chapter unless otherwise noted.
Matthew 7:28-29; 13:54

I can't imagine the torment of those that gave up their chance for a body and eternal progression. When I mentor high schoolers, I always assign The Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis. Although I love reading scripture and encourage my students to delve into them, this book paints a vivid picture of the deviousness of Satan and his minions.
Sometimes I wonder if some types of mental illnesses are evil spirits. Who knows?
