Below is a religious tract I got handed awhile ago, I'm working on writing a parody. THIS IS A PLEA FOR HELP IN THE COMMENTS.
"PAID IN FULL" [Picture of Cross]
"DID YOU KNOW? YOU are in debt because of your sin?
"ROMANS 3:23 'For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.'
"ROMANS 3:19 'Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.'
"DO YOU REALIZE? What the cost of YOUR sin debt will bring in eternity?
[Okay, you get the picture with the Bible verses, I won't retype them all]
"HAVE YOU HEARD? YOUR sin debt has been 'PAID IN FULL':
"WILL YOU BELIVE? THE BIBLE, the record of what God has done for you.
[still more Bible]
"WILL YOU TRUST? The eternity of your soul completely to JESUS CHRIST.
"REMEMBER: You must trust Jesus AND NOTHING ELSE.
[Bible, and not the last of it]"
"HAVE YOU CLAIMED THE
"'PAID IN FULL'
"RECEIPT FOR YOUR SIN DEBT?
"_I CHOOSE TO TRUST JESUS CHRIST AND HIS FINISHED PAYMENT FOR MY SIN DEBT.
"_I CHOOSE TO REJECT THE PAYMENT OF JESUS CHRIST AND TRUST MY PAYMENT
[Bible, and that's the last of it - yay!]
Please send this tract to us to let us know that after reading it, you have decided to trust Jesus Christ as your Saviour.
[Place to give them your name and adress and all that]"
Okay, that's the tract. Now, how to parody it? I'm thinking a six point thing on thinking for your self, something on this plan:
LOTS OF PEOPLE ARE IRRATIONAL
IRRATIONALITY IS BAD
YOU CAN THINK FOR YOURSELF
NO BOOK IS INFALLIBLE
REMEMBER - DON'T BLINDLY TRUST ANYONE
If anyone has a better plan, say so. But what I really need is quotes from famous - probably famous atheists, but anyone works really - to back up these headings, in place of Bible verses. Something snappy on the inquisition would be nice for the second point.
