    That is the most horrifying analogy I have ever heard. Not by intent, to be sure. It is a clumsy analogy, but it is hard to take it as intended when the imagery of carving a pumpkin, once combined with the idea of the process of becoming a Christian, becomes malignantly suggestive, clawing for attention in the mind’s eye.

    “When you invite Jesus into your heart, he scoops out your insides, carves a smile on your face, and fills you up with his light!” … The only response I can muster is a Night Valeian response: “Our God is not a Smiling God.”
