Rick was handed a nice tri-fold glossy pamphlet as he was walking to a fireworks display. It’s titled “What If”, and what it is is a collection of — you guessed it — bible quotes to extort your obedience to a goofy religion. Rick has handled the details, so I’ll just cut to the conclusion. It asks, “Based on the authority of these Scriptures, just think, WHAT IF you received Christ today? Just think, WHAT IF you don’t?”
The opening clause covers my response pretty well. “Based on the authority of these scriptures,” which is nonexistent, I don’t have to accept anything they say, and can throw it away. Or, at least, I’d reduce it to the one phrase in the whole mess that I do think is good advice.
Now, where is our glossy pamphlet like this — only, like, not stupid — that we can give out to glad-handing god-dabblers?
