StL Story-Tracts . . .
a good story;
few can pass one
up. We live in a time
when many would
rather be 'entertained'
than take the time to
learn what the Bible
has to say.
So, in an effort to
"preach the gospel to
every creature[,]" StL
offers a collection of
stories that, while
a strong Bible message.
Our stories contain
actual Bible verses
worked into the dialogue.
Yet, we make the
realistic, so as to not
come across as 'rigged',
blatantly biased, or
| "But I want to make sure you truly understand. Jesus
warned that, He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not
my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same
shall judge him in the last day. (John 12:48)
You're going to meet Him in judgment if you don't repent."
"Repent of what, Dear?" She gave me a sympathetic smile.
"Of refusing to do what the Bible says, for one thing."
"But, Honey, I've already told you, twice, I know all these things."
"But you're not taking them to heart! It's not real to you!"
"Really, Dear, we seem to be going in circles. Your father had a habit of doing that. In fact, I remember once as a child, he carried on about this toy truck he wanted. Of course, back then, we didn't have the money to buy it. Our parents did the best they could with what they had. Why, I remember they scraped and saved to take us to the circus. During the show one of the elephants escaped . . ."
I let out a silent prayer. I needed wisdom--fast!
". . . And that elephant ripped the door right off cousin Chester's car. Why, he couldn't go to work for a week. And it was a good job too . . ."
I kept praying. And somewhere between Chester losing his job and the elephant getting shot in the head, God answered it.
I Know . . . ! I Know . . . !
| "But keep looking, Sir. Read every line of God's law.
Consider the insurmountable standard each one represents and the inhuman
perfection required to follow them. Do you not see your reflection, the
reflection of a sinner, a man incapable of following them an entire lifetime
without breaking one? The Bible says, For whosoever
shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of
all. (James 2:10) It further warns, 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. (Romans 3:19)"
Jeff continued his gaze, half hearing the words of the merchant. After several moments, a smirk broke across his face.
"Sorry, pal. I don't see a sinner. Your mirror must be broke."
"Ah, but is not broken. In your case it is reflecting self-righteousness."
