Religion, an Exact Science

There is no room for broadmindedness in the chemical laboratory.  Drinking water is composed of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen.  The slighest deviation from that formula is impossible.

There is no room for broadmindedness in the mathematics classroom.  Neither geometry, calculus, nor trigonometry allows any variation from exact accuracy.  The solution of the problem is either right or wrong - no tolerance here.

There is no room for broadmindedness in the garage.  The piston rings must fit the cylinder walls within one-thousandth of an inch.  There cannot be any variation if the motor is to run smoothly.

How, then, should we expect broadmindedness to rule in the realm of morals and the science of religion?  Perhaps we ought to listen to the "narrow-minded" preacher, true to the teachings of Jesus Christ!

If I Were the Devil
I would gain control of the most powerful nation in the world;

I would delude their minds into thinking that they had come from man's effort, instead of God's blessings;

I would promote an attitude of living things and using people, instead of the other way around;

I would dupe entire states into relying on gambling for their state revenue;

I would convince people that character is not an issue when it comes to leadership;

I would make it legal to take the life of unborn babies;

I would make it socially acceptable to take one's own life, and invent machines to make it convenient;

I would cheapen human life as much as possible so that the lives of animals are valued more than human beings;

I would take God out of the schools, where even the mention of His name was grounds for a lawsuit;

I would come up with drugs that sedate the mind and target the young, and I would get sports heroes to advertise them;

I would get control of the media, so that every night I would pollute the mind of every family member for my agenda;

I would attack the family, the backbone of any nation;

I would make divorce acceptable and easy, even fashionable.  If the family crumbles, so does the nation;

I would comple people to express their most depraved fantasies on canvas and movie screens, and I would call it art;

I would convince the world that people are born homosexuals, and that their lifesyles should be accepted and marveled at;

I would convince the people that right and wrong are determined by a few who call themselves authorities and refer to their adgenda as "politically correct";

I would persuade people that the Church is irrelevant and out of date, and the Bible is for the naive;

I would dull the minds of Christians, and make them believe that prayer is not important, and that faithfulness and obedience are optional;

...I guess I would leave things pretty much the way they are. - Paul Harvey
