807. Is there anything forbidden?Lord, is there anything forbidden
In Your creation?
"Yes, My son,
Forgiveness is forbidden."
Lord, how strange.
Why is forgiveness forbidden?
"Because forgiveness is not valued."
Lord, why is it not valued?
"Because the world is ignorant."
Lord, why is the world ignorant?
"Because the world wanted ignorance."
Lord, why did the world want ignorance?
"Because Satan wanted to sell it
And was successful in selling it."
Lord, who is Satan?
Son, don't you know
Who Satan is?
He is just a clever fool,
An impossible friend of Mine."
