These days we live in a Geek type of world.
We also live in a day of automobile recalls by the millions. An unknown author came up with what they call the Human Being Recall Notice, written in Geek, the language of today, not the Greek language of yesterday. It points out not only the problem of why humans act the way they do but also provides the solution to the problem. Here it is.
The Maker of all human beings is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units’ code names Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units.
This defect has been technically termed “Sub-sequential Internal Non-Morality” or as it is more commonly known and primarily expressed, “S.I.N.”
Some other symptoms include:
- Loss of direction.
- Foul vocal emissions.
- Amnesia of origin and Manufacturer.
- Lack of peace and joy.
- Selfishness and self-absorption.
- Depression or confusion in the mental component.
- Anger and Violence.
- The Manufacturer, Who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge tocorrect this SIN defect. The Repair Technician, Jesus, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required!
- The number to call for repair in all areas is: F-O-R-G-I-V-E-N-E-S-S.
Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component. No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with: Love, joy peace patience kindness goodness faithfulness gentleness and self-control, commonly called the character of the Holy Spirit which now has replaced the old master control program.
Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Believers’ Instruction Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.
Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction, voids any Manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and, will result in the human unit being permanently impounded. For free emergency service, call on Jesus.
The human being units not responding to this recall action will be scrapped in a furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter The Maker’s facility, Heaven, so as to prevent contamination of that facility. Thank you for your PROMPT attention to this matter!
That is pretty good theology spoken in Geek.
A broken automobile cannot fix itself. A quick, shortcut repair that costs heaps (sound familiar?) done by another automobile is not the solution. Only One Master Mechanic can fix the heart of the problem, which is the problem of the heart.
If the term ‘sin’ bugs you, here’s some perspective.
Sin means missing God’s mark.
It’s like a destructive virus that affects everything in the computer. God says in the Bible that everyone has missed God’s mark. We all need or needed a major repair that only the Manufacturer can fix permanently.
If the problem gets into the Manufacturer’s facility, if affects every automobile made from then.
If God allowed S.I.N. into heaven then we would have sickness, depression, poverty, selfishness, violence, anger, shame, etc., in heaven. It would be fallen people on a fallen earth, failing all over again. No, God cares for us enough, to give us an amazing life hereafter, not battling with all the issues that we have on this side of the curtain.
And, remember, there is always a better future for everyone who wants it.
Every sinner has a future, every saint has a past. You Manufacturers units, get your S.S.B.G. certification. What’s that? SINNER SAVED BY GRACE, of course. Read Romans 10:9-10.
