God’s Gym: Workout # 1
As an author of realistic fiction, not to be confused with inane “reality tv”, one of my parables describes how adolescent males often are too blind to see the consequences of doing what is popular within their peer group until after the damage already is done. Be it skipping school, smoking, stealing, drinking, taking drugs, getting tattoos, having sex, etc., most teenagers can’t “just say no” to their friends. Instead, they say no to mentors like Coach Black, who consistently will inculcate self-discipline and accountability for one’s actions. In the context of such accountability, VICE’s textbook [www.victoryNchrist.net] repeatedly demonstrates how Junior’s father son dyad made him more perspicacious than most middle school or high school jocks. By his Dad candidly discussing the cost or consequences of various sexual lifestyles, Junior held himself accountable to his Dad’s moral standards. In this Age of Fatherlessness, perhaps, millions of males never developed such intimacy with their biological fathers. What are the consequences for these men and for societies that have no such masculine moral compass? As the government of the United States relentlessly pushes the envelope in an attempt to redefine marriage, morality, sexuality, etc., what is God’s reaction to our propensity for perversion and promiscuity? To illustrate this point, take just ten minutes to view this enlightening video on YouTube.
VICE’s free Level One and Level Two workshops empower fathers, coaches, cops, mentors, etc., to see that such folkways are costly vices rather than virtues in the lives of our young people. Thus, where are the real fathers and real men like Abraham who still trust in God — even if there’s no ram in the bush? Perhaps, God will not destroy our Nation if there are but fifty righteous men pontificating and practicing obedience unto His Commandments. Yet, if there are not, then might God’s retribution rain fire and brimstone upon us akin to His destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah? As VICE’s textbook sends forth a warning of imminent and inescapable global destruction, will “We the People of the United States” be spared by His blood on the doorpost or left behind in our immorality? Why should God bless America for having taken the Bible and the belt out of Her public schools? Obviously, the Prince of Darkness is delighted to devour such a godless nation. Moreover, to insure that we will roast in the Lake of Fire, Satan hopes that our spiritually blind citizenry won’t wake up before The Rapture! Doubters ask, “Why would a loving and merciful GOD condemn us to eternity in Hell?” Carefully watch our nation’s domestic policies as well as those in the Middle East. I can assure you, you won’t find much love for humanity or for GOD. Yet, prior to the Book of Revelation’s seven last plagues, perhaps, an exiguous number of men will join the remnant of which the Bible speaks that is steadfast and unmovable: ever abounding in the Word, the Work, and the Will of the Lord. VICE’s Level Four and Level Five workshops exist solely for this chosen few so that iron can sharpen iron! Brothers, WE can’t fix it IF we can’t face it, inconsequential to whatever it is! Thus, living in 3D [delusion, duplicity, dishonesty] will not exonerate Presidents, Popes, Pastors, or any of us from GOD’s Final Judgment.
Assuming that you have seen The Matrix, Coach Black is one of only a handful of men who can dodge bullets as well as Neo. It is he who will instruct many of your spiritual workout sessions as your personal trainer. Ultimately, you also will be able to fight enemy agents and to dodge bullets. As the manager of God’s Gym, Coach Black proffers this profound list of prerequisites he feels is sacrosanct prior to accepting your membership application for God’s Special Forces. As such, he does not judge your past — only what kind of man you are today. Fellows, take a close look at the list and determine if you are ready to develop a spiritual six pack in God’s Gym today. IF not, no worries; you can come back tomorrow or whenever you covet a morally right and tight spiritual six-pack of your own. Obviously, Workout # 1 is far more virtuous than most Americans’ level of moral fitness. Yet, now is the time for each of us to get right or to get ready to roast. Because “We the People of the United States” are not all Christians, Coach Black does not discriminate against those who embrace the Torah, Koran, etc. rather than the Holy Bible. Why? As a former teacher, he feels that any such moral compass can empower virile teenagers and grown men alike to unplug from The Matrix of Immorality in order to bend the spoon and then to slay Goliath. Rather than proselytizing, Coach Black often describes Goliath as the gigantic, politically correct immorality that is corrupting America’s youths. With well over one million convicted felons in our communities, VICE provides both men and women a second chance to lead more virtuous and productive lives via an income opportunity in our book club’s Not Guilty Program. After all, have not all of us made “moral mistakes”? For example, Moses and King David were murderers; were they not? Yet, what better prototype of victory in Christ can one find than Victor Hugo’s Jean Valjean? College students and other members of VICE who have spent at least 90 days in a juvenile facility or in foster care also are eligible for this same $200.00 discount for Independent Agents. Why? Distributing and discussing books such as this with your peers or customers can be cathartic in terms of healing the wounds from childhood millions of us carry into adulthood. This story below is an amazing tribute to the resilience of a foster child.
As Big Brother attacks and vaporizes religious piety, both in the United States and around the world, unabashedly he scores yet another touchdown for Hell’s Head Coach. Unlike the Crusades, perhaps, devout Buddhists, Christians, Jews, and Muslims have more in common with one another than we ever expected, once we have learned how to bend the spoon and to protect our masculine moral compass from Hell’s Head Coach. In the context of a Spiritual Super Bowl, gentlemen, Heaven’s Head Coach expects you to be the defensive tackle your team can count on to take a hit in order to win the game! By this shall all men know that ye are my Disciples, if ye have love one to another [John 13:35]”.

In a nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, few of us can name ten or even two relatives or friends who embrace such an irreproachable moral standard as this. Obviously, the majority of Americans, including most pastors and parishioners, prefer the line of least resistance Coach White offers students in his PE class. Yet, GOD’s Holy Spirit can not dwell in an unclean vessel. Toward cleansing us, Max Lucado said, “God loves you just the way you are. But He refuses to leave you that way.” Ergo, VICE challenges clergy and congregations alike to differentiate between counterfeit Christians and real Christian soldiers in God’s Special Forces. Without strict adherence to Biblical instruction, brethren, is it realistic for any of us to expect GOD’s favor upon our families or our nation? Did not Jesus declare, “Ye must be born again,” before any man can hate that which is evil and inherit eternal life? IF we are the head of the home and of the church, then can we be a spiritual covering within the Body of Christ without pontificating and practicing obedience unto God’s Word? While Workout # 1 primarily is temporal, gentlemen, it is a mere warm-up exercise for the spiritual fitness needed for Workout # 2 and Workout # 3, which will be demonstrated throughout LEVEL FOUR and LEVEL FIVE workshops. Gentlemen, some of you will experience for the first time ethereal and undefiled Platonic love akin to that of Jesus and His Disciples! As our government vaporizes such Biblically correct morality, Her politically correct hedonism portends the wrath of God on Judgment Day. In our modern-day Babylon, I can hear the anti–Christs shouting, “Only God can judge me!” Believe me, He already has! Therefore, while His grace and mercy still abound, repent and join God’s Special Forces. Ergo, “If ye love me, keep my commandments [John 14:15]”.
