Don’t Drink the Bleach!
When I was a child, my maternal grandmother kept a bowl of artificial fruit on her dining room table. On one occasion, naively I tried to bite into an apple that was pleasant to my eyes. Of course, the reality of a whipping soon taught me that fake fruit has no juice, no seed, and no usefulness apart from being pleasant to the eye. Often, naive children lack the cognitive development necessary for discerning between what something is and what it merely appears to be. As VICE’s textbook [www.victoryNchrist.net] clearly demonstrates, looks, indeed, can be deceiving! On a camping trip in Yosemite, for example, Junior fooled one of his buddies into thinking that a chewable laxative was chewing gum. Albeit this was a relatively innocuous practical joke, still there were consequences for one teenager having been too blind to see the trap Junior executed to perfection that night. As he also delights in our blindness, is not Hell’s Head Coach more cunning than Junior? For example, Adam and Eve were neither naive children nor teenagers when Satan deceived them into eating the forbidden fruit. Were they to have known the consequences of their disobedience beforehand, then both Adam and Eve might have decided that the cost was too great. Realizing this to be true, Satan often blindsides both Christians and non-Christians alike via his masterful bag of tricks.
Hypothetically, would a child be able to discern visually between water and bleach if its mother poured bleach into a water glass on the dinner table? If not, then VICE admonishes that child, “Don’t drink the bleach!” Similarly, the Bible relentlessly shouts to God’s children, “Don’t drink the bleach,” in order to save our lives and our souls! IF you and ten of your friends at Howard, Hofstra, Hampton, or Harvard, etc., unplug the cell phone, cable, satellite, video games, television, radio, DVD player, etc., for forty days and nights in order to read the entire Bible, then might God open your blinded eyes? We hold these truths to be self-evident that ye who reject God’s moral compass lack the spiritual sight necessary to discern between north and south, good and evil, right and wrong, water and bleach, etc. Stated differently, many high school and college students lack the cognitive wherewithal to discern the extent to which their morals already have been poisoned by hedonism, nihilism, and the politically correct immorality pontificated in academia. Similarly, VICE’s Biblically correct textbook, workshops, IQ Exams, Sex Survey, parables, and unorthodox ministry of sexual healing [www.victoryNchrist.net] will remain as incomprehensible as Sanskrit to those who drink bleach. In a nation wherein “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed, we the people no longer hear or fear the Lord. Instead, we content ourselves with the thirty pieces of silver that Big Brother or Hell’s Head Coach paid in exchange for our souls. Ergo, to Satan’s delight, the majority of the United States of America’s naive and spiritually blind youths will continue drinking bleach unawares! With well over one million convicted felons in our communities, VICE affords them 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 distributing and discussing books with their customers. This is an amazing tribute http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKsxotI-8fI to the resilience of a foster child. In this Age of a Great Falling Away, only when your spiritual eyes are open will you be able to bend the spoon. The red pill or the blue pill — the choice is yours. Upon unplugging from the matrix and opening his spiritual eyes, did not even the prodigal son come to himself and return to his father? If you first repent, then physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually return to your Father, then will not He kill the fattest calf for you? Let us not forget that Almighty Jehovah God is a Spirit; and we who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. As the Prince of Darkness digs deeper in his bag of tricks to poison you, be ye steadfast, unmovable, and always abounding in the Word, the Will, and the Work of the Lord. Whatever you do, don’t drink the bleach!
