My friend gave this to me the other day. It's a set of those optical illusion boomerangs. You know the ones... those curved piece of cardboard that, while identical in size, when held next to each other appear to be quite different in size. That's not the fun part. The fun part is what's printed on the back. It really does speak for itself.
"Our eyes are often fooled by optical illusions. Speaking of eyes... would you sell one eye for $1 Million? How about both eyes for $20 Million? No one in their right mind would. Your eyes are priceless, yet they are merely the windows of your soul. Jesus said that your eyes are worth nothing compared to the value of your soul. If your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes and being cast into Hell fire"
You really couldn't make this stuff up. But wait! There's more!
"There is nothing as important as your salvation. So, do YOU think you'll go to Heaven when you die?"
Deep stuff. But it's far from over.
"Check yourself by going through the Ten Commandments. How many lies have you told in your life? Have you ever stolen, committed adultery, or murdered someone? Have you loved God above all else? Be Honest. You know you are guilty, and on Judgement Day, you will therefore end up in Hell."
I'm starting to get scared. Dare I continue?
"Jesus showed how much God loves us by dying on the cross to take our punishment, and then rising from the dead. Today, repent, confess and turn from your sin, and trust in Jesus Christ. Then read the Bible daily, and obey it"
Yes master! Well, that's all they say, but it's enough. I'm packing to move to a convent now, so until next time... assuming that convents have wireless internet.
