Big Bells

There seems to be a continuum of holiness. To me it seems to go from bad to good something like this: Devil, demon, damned, sinner, saint, prophet, disciple, angel, messiah, God. In that taxonomy the Devil and God are the end points, singular superlatives. Everything else, with the possible exception of messiah, is plural, so even holiness seems to be distributed on a bell curve.

I asked God if that’s why churches have big bells.

He told me, no, that they had bells so they wouldn’t have to tell people they built the steeples so that angels would have someplace to perch.

I asked why they didn’t want to talk about that. God just said that sometimes I can be too gullible.
