This recent terrorist activity got me thinking.
All religions are not equal.
Life is a casino.
There’s a row of slot machines on the back wall.
Each machine is a different religion.
There are thousands of them.
The line of slot machines stretches out of sight in both directions.
A free-thinker says, “I’m not gonna play any of these”.
Denial is the payout that comes from the Atheist Machine.
Winnings include a blindfold, earplugs, and self-satisfaction in ignorance.
If you’re smart, you’ll look over the options before committing yourself.
Without much effort, you notice that many of the machines are broken.
In fact, MOST of the machines don’t work anymore.
They sit silently collecting dust.
Machines with names like Mithraism, Ashurism, Vedism, and Tengriism don’t even light up.
You shouldn’t play these.
Look at the machines with large crowds around them.
There’s a reason for that.
These machines have the best action.
They payout frequently.
In front of the machine labeled, “Islam”, a guy threatens to kill you if you play any other machine.
The payout here is also a blindfold and earplugs but fear instead of smugness.
You watch the Buddhism machine for a few minutes.
This machine reaches into the player’s wallet to pay off every jackpot.
When the Hindu machine hits, players simply vanish into thin air.
The Humanism machine is a cheap copy of the Christianity machine…
…minus the payout tray.
It costs a fortune to play the Christianity machine.
Jesus pays for anyone who wants to play it.
Everyone who pulls the handle gets truth and life.
Deciding which machine to play is the most important decision you will ever make.
The value of your whole life is determined by the payout.
The machines are not the same.
You only get one play.
Make it count!
