Me: I overheard this shop owner talking to a friend about how a particular woman had been called to come into the shop so that the shop owner could pray for the woman’s son, who had leukemia.
Preston: Wow, what delusions of grandeur, to think that you have the direct line to God’s ear. That your prayers will be the ones that cure a boy’s cancer.
Me: She probably didn’t see herself as all that special; anyone can have the same power. All you have to do is “accept-Jesus-Christ-as-your-Lord-and-Personal-Savior”.
Preston: I see. So it’s sort of like a Costco membership then.
