There was an incredibly large group of people assembled. On one side of the group stood a man, Jesus. On the other side of the group stood another man, Satan. Separating them, running through the group was a fence. The scene set, Jesus and Satan began calling to the people of the group, and one by one, each having made up his or her mind, went either with Jesus or Satan.
This continued and eventually Jesus had gathered around Him a group of people from the larger crowd, as had Satan. But one man joined neither group. He climbed the fence that was there and just sat down on it. Then Jesus and His people left and disappeared. So Did Satan and His People. The man on the fence sat alone.
As he sat there Satan came back and appeared to be looking for something he’d lost. The man said, “Have you lost something?” Satan looked straight at him and replied, “No, there you are, come with me.” “But,” said the man, “I sat on the fence, I chose neither you nor Him.” “That’s Okay,” said Satan, “I own the fence.”
