C.S. Lewis wrote that a snail can’t be very good or very bad; a dog, being more intelligent and capable, can be both better and worse than a snail; a man can be better and worse yet. A man who has a deep capacity for faith also has a great capacity for wickedness. Conversely, when brilliant people who have been wicked like this turn around, they can become great servants of Christ.

Agreed. Just look at Paul. He was RAGING against Christians. Arresting, beating, torturing and having them killed.
Then BLAM.
God said “ I can use you now Paul. You’re going to be a great testament of my power, that I’ll use you, one who persecutes me, to spread word of me and begin to build my church!”
Mel, Prayers up buddy. Get your affairs in order. Gods probably got a big use for you coming up.
