But how many out of that great number sincerely desire to know Him better every day, think of Him as their very Best Friend, and surrender their lives to Him out of a loving and trusting ongoing, personal relationship with Him?
He was a young guy, but had been married a couple years to this “Christian” girl. They both attended church every week, but neither had a personal relationship with Jesus. He soon found himself falling for another woman, a “non-Christian” woman. He then proceeded to begin living with this woman; his feelings had just grown too strong.

The next day, he called his wife and explained everything to her. The wife, who hadn’t had a true relationship with Jesus either, was drawn to her husband’s new findings and ways. They were reunited and lived close to Jesus the rest of their lives, and closer than ever to each other because of the cleansing a relationship with Him brings. (Lee Venden, 2010)

While neither of them officially converts to Christianity, their responses to their mothers' faiths are largely diverse. St. Claire, being of a more gentle temperament, seems to half-heartedly embrace it. In the beginning of the story, he generally disregards it, saying that "...it's up and down with me, ̶ up to heaven's gate in theory, down in earth's dust in practice."…
