FREE-BREAD BY STEVE FINNELL
Your local grocery store is offering free-bread to anyone who meets the requirements: 1. Bread is free only from Monday to Saturday of the current week. 2. You must be at the store in person to collect your free-bread.
Questions: 1. Will free-bread be given to those who died on Friday because they did not have time to go to the grocery store? No, requirements are requirements. 2. Will those who died on Friday without collecting their free-bread be sent to free-bread purgatory so friends and clergy can pray for their free-bread? No, requirements are requirements. 3. Will free-bread be given to the dead if those who are alive collect free-bread by proxy? No, requirements are requirements. 4. Will free-bread be given to those who do not go the grocery store because going to the store is a work and the bread would not be free if you had to be obedient to the grocery store requirements? No. rules are rules. 5. Did the grocery store select which individuals would get the free-bread and all others were to be excluded? No, anyone who met the requirements got free-bread. 6: Will those who think all you have to do to receive free-bread is have faith in free-bread and you will get free-bread? No, requirements are requirements.
