But the Wisdom of God, which is His only-begotten Son, being in all respects incapable of change or alteration, and every good quality in Him being essential, and such as cannot be changed and converted, His glory is therefore declared to be pure and sincere.
My mothers belief in spiritual healers grew stronger after our family went through a rough patch following my fathers death. Sufi saint Karimullah Shah Kadri changed our lives, and all of us converted to Sufism. But it wasnt an instantaneous decision - it took us 10 years to convert. The change in religion was like washing away the past.

I came from a tradition where souls were a theological reality, not a faith reality. Souls were for saving, not for communing. Souls were for converting and, once they were converted, they were to be left alone. Souls were too mystical, too subjective, too ambiguous, too risky, too... well, you know - New Age-ish.
