Hay. You think I'm crazy? You should hear the voices in my head. Those people have issues.

Angela is another word for atheist.

Angela literally means, "Little Angel."  That does not mean weak.  That means inconspicuous and unobtrusive.  It also means very loving.  These persons intelligently go about the work of kindness and beauty.  These positive and wonderful persons make life better for us all.  The work of God is to make us better people.  Not everyone lives up to the name but there is no reason not to try.

The treachery and stubbornness of atheists is to make us weaker and meaner.  They do only hate, and lie about it, because they understand nothing but hate.  Persons who are so severely limited as atheists are anything but unobtrusive.  They are instead loud, angry, bitter, oppressive, and surly. 

Think of persons who are positive, uplifting, and have something to contribute.  They are from God.  Think of persons who are bitter, accusing, and deceitful.  They contribute nothing because they are devoted only to Satan and whoever else might be the slaves of Satan.

It is never difficult to tell them apart.

If you do not master your destiny, it will master you.

The root of the name Angela is ancient Greek. It comes from the word aggelos, meaning messenger. There was no word in ancient greek for an "angel" as we know them, so they used this word when writing the new testament. Only then did the work come to take on religious connotations. Before that it basically meant courier or message-runner.
