    THE LORD'S BASEBALL GAME
    >
    > Freddy and the Lord stood by to observe a baseball game.
    >The Lord's team was playing Satan's team.
    >
    > The Lord's team was at bat, the score was tied zero to zero,
    >and it was the bottom of the 9th inning with two outs. They continued to
    >watch as a batter stepped up to the plate named 'Love.'
    >
    > Love swung at the first pitch and hit a single, because
    >"Love never fails."
    >
    > The next batter was named Faith, who also got a single
    >because Faith works with Love.
    >
    > The next batter up was named Godly Wisdom. Satan wound up and threw
    >the first pitch.
    >
    >
    > Godly Wisdom looked it over and let it pass: Ball one. Three
    >more pitches and Godly Wisdom walked because he never swings at what Satan
    >throws.
    >
    >
    > The bases were now loaded. The Lord then turned to Freddy
    >and told him He was now
    > going to bring in His starplayer. Up to the plate stepped Grace.
    >Freddy said, "He sure doesn't look like much!"
    >
    > Satan's whole team relaxed when they saw Grace.
    > Thinking he had won the game, Satan wound up and fired his first
    >pitch. To the shock of everyone, Grace hit the ball harder than anyone had

    >ever seen! But Satan was not worried; his center fielder let very few get
    >by.

    >
    >
    > He went up for the ball, but it went right through his glove,
    >hit him on the head and sent him crashing on the ground;
    >
    > the roaring crowds went wild as the ball
    >

    >
    >

    > continued over the fence . . . for a home run!

    > The Lord then asked Freddy if he knew why Love, Faith and
    >Godly Wisdom could get on base but couldn't win the game. Freddy answered

    >that he didn't know why.
    >
    > The Lord explained, "If your love, faith and wisdom had won
    >the game, you would think you had done it by yourself. Love, Faith and
    >Wisdom will get you on base but only My Grace can get you Home:

    Satan was the pitcher?

    I think you got that wrong.

    According to most fans, Satan is the umpire.
