Why Touch a Hot Stove?
Proverbial wisdom in the United States suggests that “We the People” not discuss politics and religion. Antithetically, VICE’s textbook [www.victoryNchrist.net] candidly discusses both without beating anyone up with a fifty-pound Bible. In the textbook, VICE speculated that even if the entire Bible consisted of just ten words, “Thou shalt not place thy hand upon a hot stove,” still millions of teenagers would burn their hands just to prove it’s their prerogative to do so! While the Scriptures are the moral compass or substrate for all of VICE’s discussions, one’s sexuality and morality are personal decisions. Lamentably, public schools in the United States no longer offer teenagers ethical courses in Philosophy, Religion, Christianity, The New Testament, Great Men in the Bible, etc., to impact these crucial personal decisions. Apparently, “In God We Trust” has become a mere creed on the money upon which it is printed. Yet, do not politics, religion, and sexuality form the moral bedrock of any culture or society? 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 and an income opportunity in our book club’s Not Guilty Program. Afterall, 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. Whereas not all Americans embrace Christianity, it is important for Buddhists, Muslims, and Jews, etc., to examine VICE’s pedagogy via the moral compass of the Tripitaka, Koran, and the Torah respectively. Therefore, Victory In Christ Ensemble does not expect a monolithic interpretation of this course in sex education. Instead, VICE strongly encourages Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, and Muslim teenagers and young adults to study the Scriptures and to admonish one another about the glaringly self-evident vices inherent to touching hot stoves. Inconsequential to whether you venture off to college, the military, etc., your core values and morals will be tested once you graduate from high school and leave home! Without shaming or condemning teenagers, VICE sagaciously teaches them how to bend the spoon in order to avoid costly “sexual mistakes”. Thus, VICE’s unique textbook proffers a candid look at both sexual virtues and sexual vices in order for enlightened youths to resist touching hot stoves unawares. In so doing, you increase the probability of your having a blessed marriage and a blessed family when you genuinely want to become a Mom or a Dad. Isn’t your virtue precious enough to save for that special soul mate or do you prefer risking the vices inveterately associated with baby’s momma drama? A final admonition: stay out of Hell’s kitchen unless you want to get burned…I hope to hear from you soon!
