Stories & Reflections
The devil was talking to his friends when they noticed a man walking along a road. They watched him pass and saw that he bent down to pick something up.
– What did he find? – asked one of the friends.
– A piece of Truth – answered the devil.
The friends were very concerned. After all, a piece of Truth might save that man’s soul – one less in Hell. But the devil remained unmoved, gazing at the view.
– Aren’t you worried? – said one of his companions.
– He found a piece of Truth!
– I’m not worried – answered the devil.
– Do you know what he’ll do with the piece?
As usual, he’ll create a new religion. And he’ll succeed in distancing even more people from the whole Truth.
