Killed Jesus, and Why?
Here's a jpg of a 51 Merc I downloaded in 2006. The one in this story looked a lot like this restored car.

In 1951, I was teenager.
My dad traded a hot 1949 Mercury V-8 with a standard transmission and overdrive
for a new 1951 Mercury V-8, but with Merc-O-Matic automatic transmission. You
could measure the new car's 0-60 performance with a sun dial instead of s stopwatch.
One day, I was
taking some friends for a ride in Dad's new car and came to a traffic light.
A 1950 Chevy pulled up beside me. I knew that Chevy with a straight stick could
whip the Merc-O-Matic away from the light with no sweat. So, as the light started
to turn green, I put my dad's Mercury into Neutral and raced the engine. When
the light turned green, I floored the accelerator and pulled the shift lever
down into Drive. Instead of beating the Chevy away from the light, that Merc
never moved from its tracks.
When they towed
the Merc to the garage, there was a small handful of broken metal parts on the
pavement which I had as a souvenir of the occasion. The autopsy report from
the Ford garage: broken universal joint, bent drive shaft, and a repair bill
of one hundred-fifty1951 dollars.
That 1951 Mercury
(or any other car, for that matter) was not designed to be shifted into Drive
from Neutral at full throttle. Therefore, what I did was wrong. Not because
Dad said it was wrong, but because the Ford Motor Company said it was wrong
when they wrote the operator's manual. When I violated that operator's manual,
there was a bill to pay.
God is our Manufacturer.
The Holy Bible is His operating manual for how we run our lives. When we violate
His operating manual, the Bible, there will be a bill to pay. And it may be
a lot more than one hundred-fifty1951 dollars, too!
A certain practice
isn't wrong because the Bible says it's wrong, the Bible says it's wrong because
it is wrong. The Manufacturer always has the authority to specify the correct
operating procedure for His product.
Normal behavior is the way we are designed to function according to our Manufacturer.
Average behavior is what most of the people are doing most of the time.
It's always better to be Normal than to be Average.
