This story has a certain bit of irony to it.
The pastor leaves his faith to test athiesm, perhaps for a learning experiance. It seems like he's learned a valuable lesson. God takes care of
those who love and worship him. All that is God's, responds in kind. So maybe this is the lesson he's looking for, but instead of taking the
wisdom from it, he's taking a hard stance agaisnt it. This can be said of anyone in similar situations when dealing with their faith and their
beliefs. I see a lot of irony here. I also see a real portal for wisdom as well. When he pulled away from all that is God, perhaps God and all that
is related to God left him to his own devices. A way of saying to him in wisdom, when you pull away from God, you're left in the darkness on your
own. When you return, I'm sure this applies here as well, he would be accepted back into the fold.
Just as a reminder... Man cannot live on bread and wine alone, as this man is only suffering of that which is caesars... money. The very thing he's
getting from the athiests who rather seems to relish from the idea that he's pulling away, and that they can come to his "rescue".
There is so much irony here, it bleeds from every word. It's more than simply him loosing his ability to participate in something that he's
alienated himself from. It's irony on a spiritual level as well.
I will thank you for the OP, even if I dont agree with you. By posting this and bringing up this discussion, you've actually lifted my faith just a
little more based on the wisdom and understanding I see in all of this.
