Strike Three, you’re out. (57 sec)
1. What if God…
...said, " Dusty, you get three strikes and you're out?"
...kept score like we do?
...punished us for missing the mark (sin)?
...made a distinction between us and the people we hate?
...made a distinction between us and a death row inmate?
...made a distinction between us and the celebrities we idolize?
... gave us a metaphysical spanking for our bad behaviors?
... was as really as absentminded and powerless as we make him out to be?
...wasn't so benevolent to see all of us as his Prodigal Son welcoming us Home with open arms?
...was as frightened as we are?
...were angry, punitive, and vengeful, unleashing storms as a means to punish us?
...wrote us off altogether?
