Mission Creep 91

Over the course of the semester, Pat rejects and changes religions at a maddening pace: Voodoo, Islam, Hinduism, Jehovah’s Witness, Wicca, Buddhism — the whole gamut, an entire alphabet of belief systems — and there seems to be no stopping the train.

What can I do to help, God? You constantly ask the Almighty.

Eventually, you settle on two things: 1) you will continue to pray for Pat and 2) you will educate yourself on the teachings of Christianity that set it apart from all other religions. As it turns out, there are three:

  • Christianity is a historical religion (so in theory, it could be disproved)
  • God is 3 persons in 1 being (the doctrine of the Trinity), and
  • Jesus is 100% divine and 100% human.

After a few weeks, several people begin to join you and Pat as together you discuss matters of faith.
