“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."

Additional Notes in The Story

  • Notice the suspect was never pronounced a criminal (Colossians 1:13-14)
  • Realize the subliminal lack of police jurisdiction (public opinion)
  • The locked building (or heart) was never damaged or burglarized (Jeremiah 17:9-10)
  • Observe the automatic reflex to surrender to police (public opinion) even when they are merely sensed to be around.
  • The Negotiator never claimed any affiliation with police (public opinion)
  • Perceive that God did not come inside until the heart (building) was isolated and pure (Matthew 5:8)
  • This whole story animates predominately around the Holy Spirit, our current leader (John 14:26)  
  • Notice the geography of God coming inside the heart (Proverbs 21:2)
  • The Negotiator once addressed the suspect as "my friend (John 15:14).”
  • Observe the devil’s physical absence, and it’s ongoing pattern today
  • Notice the so-called hostages were silent, and never put up a fight against the man's authority during his cooperation with God
  • Notice the first and last word of the entire parable is "on you."
