We Shall All Be Changed Into Soup

Simcha Fisher - published on 12/09/15

We can deal with hard work, we can deal with pain and suffering.  But our secret fear is that, if we open ourselves to change, we will become an alien to ourselves.  We will turn into something we won’t recognize.  And even if that new thing is a good thing — what happens to us?  Doesn’t God love us now?  Will we be lost?

This fearful idea, the fear that who we are will be lost, is a desperate temptation from the devil, which he throws at people who are on the verge of giving their hearts to God. It’s a temptation, and a temptation is a lie. We will not be lost.
