That said, and without further delay, here’s your sneak peek at Chapter 10, “The Would Be God Who Would Be President”:

Chapter 10



…what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God…

~ 2 Corinthians 6:14-16


“Of two evils, choose neither.”

~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon


“Oh yeah, I know all about it. It’s incredible! Truly an amazing thing! If you work hard enough and you are a good enough guy here and now in the eyes of the god of this world – who, by the way, was once just a fallen man like you – he will then, in turn, make you the god of your own little planet. Wow! What’s not to like about that?”

The nicely dressed young man’s eyes widened a bit at this unusual response to his question.

“And after he green lights you for that supercool promotion, you get these amazing perks, including all the eternal sex you can handle with your multiple(!) totally-devoted-to-your-needs spirit wives. Quite naturally, the offspring from those never-ending celestial happy times will then go on to become the souls of the people populating the little planet over which you are god.”

By the time the subject of eternal celestial polygamous sex came along, the increasingly concerned young questioner-turned-listener had completely lost track of the warm smile that had accompanied his asking of the initial question in the first place.

“Then, of course, those people born under your godship, if they are wise enough, work hard enough, and are good enough in your eyes, can themselves earn a shot onto the same supercool track to god-ness; an eternity long path with no beginning and no end – just an unbroken, unending line of men becoming gods and women becoming eternal soul/baby-makers stretching as far into the past and future as anyone can see or imagine. Yeah, that makes perfect sense.”

By now passers-by at the Battlefield Mall were starting to slow down and pay attention. It didn’t help that the response, however kindly it was being made, was also being spoken with a precision and at a volume that sure seemed aimed, at least in part, at those increasingly interested bystanders.

“No true beginning. No end in sight. Just innumerable men-made-gods living out the most polytheistic religion imaginable, each going about their eternities enjoying a whole lotta power and, of course, a whole lotta sex with a whooooooole lotta women. Neato! Whatta deal, huh!? Well, maybe not so much if you’re a woman, but that’s obviously beside the point. This has to be a pretty easy sell for guys at least, right? I mean, guys who like sex and power, anyway. And since you apparently would like all of the power, all of the sex, and all of the sex partners that come as a part of that rather amazing sounding godhood package, you are here at the mall talking with me today. That’s pretty much it, right?”

This was not how or where the conversation was supposed to go. This was not the answer that the young man was looking for when he so politely and kindly escorted his simple, sincere question to its target with the warmest of smiles and a friendly, firm hand shake. And before the young man could respond, it got worse.

“I do appreciate that the name ‘Jesus’ was included in your question, since the single most important question that any of us can ask or consider is, ‘Who is Jesus?’”

Aha! Jesus! Now there was a term – a name, the name – that would surely unite all parties involved in the conversation…or maybe not…

“Of course, the name ‘Jesus’ is only as good or bad as the person to whom it is attached, so we can probably both agree that it’s always important to be sure that we’re talking about the same person when we use the same name. I mean, a lot of very different people can go by the same name.”
