THE HEART IS deceitful above all things,
And desperately wicked;
Who can know it?
I, the Lord, search the heart,
I test the mind,
Even to give every man according to his ways,
And according to the fruit of his doings.

--Jeremiah 17:9

AM SURROUNDED by Christians. They are generally speaking a pleasant and agreeable lot, not noticeably different from other people—even though they...have killed off more people than all other people put together. Yet I cannot be sure they don’t have the truth. But if they have the truth, why is it the case that they are repellent precisely to the degree that they embrace and advertise the truth? One might even become a Christian if there were few if any Christians around.

— Walker Percy, The Second Coming
