The parable of Joe Doakes
THE PARABLE OF JOE DOAKES
Joe Doakes is the one who invented all the traffic laws. He invented the red light and the green light. He made the laws about right turns and left turns. He also made it illegal to run people over. Offenders were to be fined or imprisoned.
In the course of time, there were so many traffic offenders who were in prison, so many fines to be paid, that Joe Doakes took his only son, John Doakes, bought him a car and sent him out on the road. After about thirty years behind the wheel, John had observed every single traffic law! He was the perfect driver! He had satisfied all his father’s demands! So, father Joe repealed all the traffic laws he had made. His son had ‘fulfilled’ them all! But what about those accumulated prison terms and fines?? Father Joe figured that one good execution just about equalled all those penalties, so he sent his son to the electric chair to pay debts of all those miserable motorists. They are all now living in grace! The penalty has been paid, by Joe Doakes, who had invented traffic laws that were just too hard to obey.
A lot of stuff, you say? Laws are made to live by, to be observed, not to be ‘fulfilled;?? One man cannot observe laws for other people?? Without traffic laws the world of vehicles and transportation will be destroyed?? One guy on the electric chair cannot free offenders from imprisonment or fines??
You bet it’s a lot of stuff! Yet, millions of brainwashed ‘believers’ all over the world believe similar stuff about God, His Commandments, and His Way of Salvation! According to Christian theology (but NOT according to God Himself!) the Creator gave man a law he couldn’t possibly obey. Man became a ‘debtor’ to the Divine Bookkeeper. So God sent his ‘son’ to ‘fulfill’ the law, and to die on a cross to ‘pay’ mankind’s ‘debt’ to God. To make matters worse, the ‘son’ was really God Himself, disguised as a man. God committed suicide on a cross to pay mankind’s debt. To WHOM did He pay however?? According to this theory, God really paid – TO HIMSELF! He took money out of one pocket and put it into the other one! God killed Himself to pay off debts owed to Him! BAD BUSINESS PRACTICE, AND BAD THEOLOGY!
Dear Reader, do NOT accept such theological book juggling! Do not accept such spiritual darkness as the Creator’s true Plan of Salvation. Have you sinned? YHVH shows the way!! ‘Again, when the wicked man turns from his wickedness that he committed, AND DOES WHAT IS LAWFUL AND RIGHT, HE SHALL SAVE HIS SOUL ALIVE!!’ Ezekiel 18:27.
NO BELIEF IN GOD’S SUICIDE ON A CROSS, NO MAGIC REMOVAL OF SINS, NO CREED INSTEAD OF DEED!
REPENT AND ACT RIGHTLY, RETURN TO YHVH, AND SAVE YOUR SOULS ALIVE!
