Smoking with the Devil

Those who are close to me know that I am not opposed to religion, but that I was raised in the LDS faith. While I may not attend church every Sunday, I still adhere to the teachings and guidelines instilled in me during my youth. If I were to describe my spiritual beliefs, I would say that I share the same non-denominational Christian beliefs as the late Paul Walker, who also grew up in the LDS faith.

As a child of the Mormon church, I was taught that only evil occurs after midnight, when the devil is at his most powerful. Yet here I am, defying the teachings of my youth and indulging in the darkness by smoking delicious barbecue late into the night.
