Oliver pestered Theodore, a fellow member of the congregation, proclaiming him an unregenerate fool unworthy of heaven and heading down the highway to hell. Although he did not see himself in the witch and warlock business his words witlessly activated curses. If he had to excuse his behavior later on, without actually apologizing, he might say that his blood pressure was on the verge of exploding justifying him running his mouth leaving no unkindness unspoken.
Under his own state of demonic influence Theodore wondered if Oliver, who often went over the top, might this time be onto something admitting that he indeed was unworthy of heaven, but then who wasn’t? Given a recent diagnosis of terminal kidney disease Theodore momentarily felt like a failure both in his present life and, should Oliver’s prophecies by chance come true, the next.
Because he could think of nothing better as a response Theodore wished Oliver the mercy of deliverance that he himself longed for saying, “If the blood of Jesus isn’t enough to cover me, may it at least cover you.”
