    E-mailed to me.

    Something to think about.

    DART TEST
    >
    > A young lady named Sally, relates an experience she had in a seminary
    > class, given by her teacher, Dr. Smith. She says that Dr. Smith was known
    > for his elaborate object lessons.
    >
    > One particular day, Sally walked into the seminary and knew they were in
    > for a fun day.
    >
    > On the wall was a big target and on a nearby table were many darts. Dr.
    > Smithtold the students to draw a picture of someone that they disliked or
    > someone who had made them angry, and he would allow them to throw darts at
    > the person's picture.
    >
    > Sally's friend drew a picture of who had stolen her boyfriend. Another
    > friend drew a picture of his little brother. Sally drew a picture of a
    > former friend, putting a great deal of detail into her drawing, even
    > drawing pimples on the face. Sally was pleased with the overall effect she
    > had achieved.
    >
    > The class lined up and began throwing darts. Some of the students threw
    > their darts with such force that their targets were ripping apart. Sally
    > looked forward to her turn, and was filled with disappointment when Dr.
    > Smith, because of time limits, asked the students to return to their
    > seats.
    > As Sally sat thinking about how angry she was because she didn't have a
    > chance to throw any darts at her target, Dr. Smith began removing the last
    > target from the wall.
    >
    > Underneath the target was a picture of Jesus. A hush fell over the room
    > as each student viewed the mangled picture of Jesus; holes and jagged
    > marks covered His face and His eyes were pierced.
    >
    > Dr. Smith said only these words... "In as much as ye have done it unto
    > the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto Me." Matthew 25:40.
    >
    > No other words were necessary; the tears filled eyes of the students
    > focused only on the picture of Christ.
    >
    > This is an easy test; you score 100 or zero. It's your choice.
    > .......
    >
    > If you aren't ashamed to do this, please follow these directions: (Jesus
    > said, "If you are ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of you, before My
    > Father.")
    >
    > Not ashamed ... pass this on.
    >
    > Ashamed ... delete it.

    > Isn't it funny how everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do not
    > have to believe, think, say, or do anything the Bible says. Or, rather
    > scary?

    > Isn't it funny how someone can say "I believe in God" but still follow
    > Satan (who, by the way, also "believes" in God ).

    I like that - the only part about those types of things is the 'threats' about not forwarding the info. :(
