[quote:2y5j9djc]Heaven is a bribe[/quote:2y5j9djc]

Oh man! I used to get thoughts like this one very often a few years ago. Say, if I was heading for Mass I would invariably get in my head “you¬¥re only doing this for the reward”. It used to really bother me a lot, until I figure out it was the devil using one of his favorite lies.
Now I´m not bothered by this anymore, I guess the devil has moved on to others of his many lies. Unfortunately he´s got a lot of them :x

Dear Jesus, Prince of Truth, Please help us recognize the lies of the enemy so we can´t fight them with your help and the help of Our Dear Mother, Amen

God´s Peace and Love
