It was definitely interesting to read from the Devil's perspective. After reading this I realized that I have the exact problem that the reading is talking about. I am a very indecisive person and therefore am uncertain. This shows in my faith life. Since being at Calvin I have not put forth the effort to attend church, however I have prayed every night. I still believe in God and Jesus but I now realize that I am slowly, unknowingly, slipping away. This is what this excerpt from the screwtape letters describes. It's always a slow decline, making it nearly unnoticeable. And uncertainty, shown in the diagram in the presentation, leads to hell eventually also. Hopefully this new awareness after this reading will help me to watch my faith life more closely.
