The Devil is in the Church?

From the Seattle Times – March 20, 2009

Arlington woman blames Satan for $73K church theft

An Arlington woman accused of taking more than $73,000 from the church where she was an administrative assistant blames the devil.

Papers filed with a theft charge Wednesday in Snohomish County Superior Court say Collen R. Okeson, 62, told detectives she guessed "Satan had a big part in the theft."

Okeson is accused of forging the pastor's signature on 80 checks from the Arlington Free Methodist church. She was fired in February 2008. She told detectives she used the money to cover household expenses.

"If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:8-9)
