“Well this is witty and a great way of making religion more interesting!”

“I liked finding the scriptures at the end. When I looked the passages up, it helped to explain some of your imagery and symbolism that I didn't quite understand initially.”

"Lovely. Allegorical Bible commentaries (parables) and teachings are powerful. I like how the scripture references follow each thought to show the association and reveal truths in God's Word."

The Parable of The Visiting Son
Explaining Salvation

Sunny comes from out of town to visit his father (John 1:29) (Matthew 5:17), only to discover his pop surrounded by police, businessmen, and lawyers (Ephesians 6:12).

"What’s going on?” Junior demands.
"They're taking my home." His father says reluctantly (John 10:10).
"Give ME the debt!” The son yells toward the just-business environment (Isaiah 53:3).
         The nosy crowd is astonished, including the father.
"But," the bankers replies, "this is not your problem! (John 18:35)” 

         The son stands his ground until the banker finally gives in (Luke 22:42). And, with the bill now in junior's name, the son simply reaches in his pocket and pays it off, cash (Isaiah 53:10). And immediately after, many witness the banker and the son wink at each other. To this day, spectators wonder, "Did the banker secretly arrange for this well-timed rescue?" (I John 1:2) (Psalms 22:30)

A narcissistic groom, it seems (Proverbs 16:18),
their heart logistics doomed (Luke 14:11) if we can’t quickly earn some apologies (Mark 1:15)
