The
news recently carried the story from Florida of a baby cat born with two faces. 
It is not certain how long the cat will live, although it had begun taking nourishment
which was a good sign.  Several experts said they had never seen such an abnormality
before.  The owners named the cat “Deuce.”  While this phenomenon is rare in
the physical world, it is not rare in the spiritual world.  People frequently
exhibit two faces.  We show one face to the people we like and another to those
we don’t.  We show one face at church and another at work.  It is considered
abnormal in the physical realm to have two faces.  It should be abnormal in
the spiritual world as well.
