What The Purging Lutheran has here today is a box of toys we kept when peeps with little peeps would come over to visit. My Sweet Rib would break the box out for the wee bërn to keep them from carrying cats around by their tails. If instead of this being a picture of a bunch of toys but rather a photo of a modern army, TPL would be very concerned. When did someone design and build a weapon that was half race car and half shark? Not just that but a shark with humongous teeth! And when did the miltary start using American flags made of plastic? And there is propellor driven drone to the left, ready to take pictures of bad guys to determine which ones suffer from male-pattern baldness. And of course we couldn’t overlook the mustachioed monster of a man sitting on the bridge railing. Is he human? Is he machine? Is he a human toy with replaceable parts so it doesn’t cost the taxpayers an arm and a leg to fix him even if all he needs is an arm and a leg? Just because the military pays $10,000 for a wrench or toilet seat doesn’t mean it has to pay that much for a new elbow or set of toes.
A Fight to the Finish
And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we’ll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels.
