"Well," I told him "I guess somebody got saved out of that last Bible Handout - and Bad Things are furious!" For once, Ron actually agreed with my theology.
If you care to hear it; here's Ron's theology. Ron loves God, accepts Jesus' death on the cross, is saved. His feels, since he's saved, he's had "enough trouble" in life and deserves to get taken up to Heaven, one way or another. Ron also deserves an "easier" life, being saved, and God refuses to oblige him. Because God refuses to do so, He is "Torture Man" or "Torch" for short. Boy, I heard both names A LOT today. Ron is happy to share God, ranges from neutral to supportive as regards my evangelism, and doesn't usually impede me. He finds the concept of prayer and Bible study "pointless" and interrupts me frequently when I do my God Time, unless I shout repeated reminders. "I'm doing my God Time!" "Oh, sorry! Tell Him to hurry up!"
My theology, in a paragraph: Jesus loves me so much He died for me. I accept His gift of salvation, and do my best to live a moral life because I know that's pleasing to Him. God wants me to share His message with everyone, so I do, however He directs me. I pray and study my Bible daily, because I want to understand Him and do His will. In the Bible, I am specifically promised a hard time: John 16:33
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”
