Along with much of the imagery in the book of Genesis, we put the devil in a storage closet, to be sorted through at a later date. Maybe when Halloween comes around. We can get behind the New Testament “neighbor” talk, and even loving the lepers, but the  “devil” seems to be a poorly drawn cartoon character, an ill-willed fast food mascot that belongs with the Hamburglar and the like.

“The overall purpose of human communication is — or should be —  reconciliation. It should ultimately serve to lower or remove the walls of misunderstanding which unduly separate us human beings, one from another." — M. Scott Peck

Brian was the quintessential straight-laced Midwestern fraternity boy: funny, nerdy, and leader of the well attended chapter Bible study.  His position endeared him to most, but made him a nuisance to others. Some in the house were skeptical of the influence he had with the rest of the guys, and feared that the frat’s reputation would go down as the Bible thumping went up.
