This story may be somewhat asinine; but it truly has good lessons.
1.) God loves us and wants a relationship with us. Eternal life (abundant life) is knowing God as Lord, Father, Friend …..AND Saviour.
2.) Grace is not a “get out of jail free card;” it is the power of God in our lives to help us overcome and defeat sin and to draw closer to our loving Father.
3.) The wisdom of man is always folly, and the foolishness of God is always wise!!!!

As a prequel – here is a bizarre song to go along with our bizarre tale.
If you aren’t into strange boinky bass rock…..just skip to the story. Cheers and blessings!!!!

Steven was a scientist
who dreamed of fame
and had a dreadful fear
of Hell’s flame.

Like most others
in his profession,
he had a great disdain
for confession;
and would not give an acknowledging nod
to the supremacy of Almighty God.

He thought if
there is a Heaven
– in order to get in,
all one need do
is get rid of their sin.
He said, “All mankind needs
is a means
to erase dirty thoughts
and evil deeds.”

One morning he got the idea
in a rush,
while disposing of some gnarly diarrhea
with a flush…….

….Through careful calculation
and brilliant deduction
Steven formulated
a one of a kind production:
with just a chew
of the molecular bonding goo
all knowledge and memory of sin
was released through waste.
As a bonus, it freshened breath
and had a minty taste.
Steven decided to name his invention
– POOT PASTE!!!

He said, “Who better than I
to give it a try?!!!”
So he was maniacal and mean
– a total jerk;
but no sin could he remember
– this stuff actually worked!

With each dump and gas
his memory would pass:
He didn’t remember going to strip clubs;
he swore that he never called
his colleagues a bunch of losers and scrubs;
he didn’t know who ran over the neighbor’s cat;
and his wife had to remind him
that he said her dress DID make her look fat!

He touted in glee
living life guilt free.
Only one thing did spoil it
– he was always on the toilet.

Finally, he went to see Ol’ Doc Fred.
After running some tests,
the Doc shook his head and said,
“I’m sorry to say;
and I can’t really put it any other way:
the tests are conclusive,
there is no doubt
– you, dear sir, are quite literally
pooping your brains out!
For someone so smart,
you really are dumb
– trying to outwit God
instead of accepting His Son.
You didn’t erase your sin,
just your guilt;
and, you’ve been ticking everyone off
and destroying all the good will you’ve built.
Jesus loves you;
He died to set you free.
So, spit out that goop
and get down on your knees!”

Well, I’m happy to say
that Steven gave his life
to Christ that day;
and, when he had died
there was no doubt
as to where he went
– because he truly loved the Lord
and learned how to repent.

So, if guilt is building
in your life
and is painful to your gut;
you have two choices, my friend:
you can give it to God,
or chew Poot Paste
and blow it out your butt!

THE END

Isaiah 55:8,9 – The Lord says, “Your thoughts are not like my thoughts. Your ways are not like my ways. Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways.”

John 3:16,17 – For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not be lost, but will have eternal life. God did not send His Son into the world to judge the world guilty, but to save the world through Him.
