Sitting On The Fence


There was an incredibly large group of people assembled. On one side of the 
group stood a man, Jesus. On the other side of the group stood another man, 
Satan. Separating them, running through the group was a fence. 

The scene set, both Jesus and Satan began calling to the people in the group 
and, one by one, each having made up his or her mind, each went to either 
Jesus or Satan. 

This kept going, and eventually Jesus had gathered around him a group of 
people from the larger crowds, as did Satan. But one man joined neither 
group. He climbed the fence that was there and just sat down on it. Then 
Jesus and his people left and disappeared. So too did Satan and 
his people. 

And the man on the fence sat alone. 

As this man sat there, Satan came back, and appeared to be looking for 
something that he'd lost. The man said, "Have you lost something?" Satan 
looked straight at him and replied, "No, there you are. Come with me." 

"But," said the man, "I sat on the fence. I chose neither you nor Him. 
"That's okay," said Satan. "I own the fence."
