You read the Word? How lovely. You pray? Three times a day? Really? Oh, wow. You even fasted twice last week. Impressive.

Hmm. I am highly impressed with your ability to skim words, mutter memorized phrases, and starve yourself. What did you say your name was, again? Danielle? Oh, my. And here I was thinking it was Gossiper. My mistake.

What was that? I’m being judgmental? Why do you say that?

Well, of course your Sunday attendance is extraordinary. I was simple stating that–

Yes. Yes. I know. But in the end, what does it matter how many times you go to church if you ignore every homeless man you come across?

Please, calm down. I was only pointing out that God requires more of us than Sunday worship and paying our dues through prayer and the occasional bible scripture.

I was not questioning your salvation, my sister. What? Don’t you think you’re getting a little upset? Hey! Watch the name calling! Highly unnecessary.

Look, I think this conversation is over. Clearly I have made my point.

What point? How can you ask what point? It is clear. Christianity is a life-style, not just outward motions designed to make us look good. We’re supposed to be beautiful examples of Christ inside and out.

Look here! I am not questioning your salvation, okay? I’m sure you are very beautiful. Yes, I assure you that I do have a relationship with God and–

No, I’m not questioning your relationship at all. I’m just making a point!

Why are you so blasted sensitive? Thank God I’m not like you. I actually walk this thing out, thank you very much.

What’s that?

How dare you accuse me of hypocrisy! You had better be careful who you’re talking to! I am the anointed of the most High God, and His word says not to touch His anointed. That means you better watch how you talk to me, young lady. Wouldn’t want the Lord smitin’ you with a curse…

You know what? I’m just going to pray for you. Really, really hard.
