How To Take Off Your Grave Clothes by Fenton Moorhead

HOW TO TAKE OFF YOUR GRAVE CLOTHES

April 19, 1992

JESUS LOOKED DEEP INTO THE EYES OF THOSE CHASING THE WIND OF
THIS WORLD'S THINGS, HE LOVED THEN AND ASKED,

"WHAT WILL IT PROFIT A MAN IF HE GAINS THE WHOLE WORLD AND LOSES
HIS OWN SOUL?"

ARE YOU BUSY TRYING TO GAIN THE WORLD TODAY BUT IN DANGER OF
LOSING YOUR SOUL?

MUCH IN OUR MODERN LIVES HAS THE SMELL OF DEATH ABOUT IT. OUR
SOCIETY IS IN TROUBLE. THE ECONOMIC STRUGGLES ARE ONLY ON THE
SURFACE. PEOPLE ARE FED UP. THEY ARE SICK AND TIRED, WEARY AND
WORN, THE YUPPIE FATIGUE SYNDROME HAS SET IN. IT HAS A CHOKE
HOLD ON THE LIVES OF MILLIONS IN A "WHATEVER IT TAKES" SOCIETY.
WE ARE A "GIVE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT" SOCIETY. THE BOTTOM LINE
IS SIMPLY GREED AND MONEY. LIFE IS A LOTTERY. THOSE WHO STRIKE
IT RICH WIN?

IF YOU COULD SIMPLY GO OUT TODAY AND BUY EVERYTHING YOU ARE
WORKING SO HARD FOR, WHAT ABOUT YOUR LIFE WOULD REALLY BE

LITTLE VALUE IF THEY ARE AN INCONVENIENCE TO OUR DESIRED
LIFESTYLE!
HOW CAN PARENTS RAISE CHILDREN THEY NEVER SEE BECAUSE THEY ARE
CHASING A LIFESTYLE AT THE END OF A RAINBOW? IF YOUR KEEP
STEPPING UP INTO A BETTER CAR, NEIGHBORHOOD, JOB, AND LOSE THE
FARM (YOUR SELF, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR CHILDREN...WHAT DIFFERENCE
WILL IT MAKE?)

WHEN LIFE DOES NOT WORK PEOPLE TRY ESCAPES.

THE ESCAPE FROM ONE PERSON TO ANOTHER, ONE BED TO ANOTHER, AND
THE LONELINESS DOES NOT GO AWAY. WE ARE A SOCIETY OF "AHOLICS":
WORK AHOLICS, ALC AHOLICS, SEX AHOLICS, ADULT TOY AHOLICS,
LOOKING FOR SOME NEW PERSON, THING OR GADGET TO FILL THE
DESPERATION OF OUR LIVES. WE ARE LOOKING FOR THE HIGHEST HIGH,
THE GREATEST THRILL, THE FINAL EXPERIENCE.

OUR SOCIETY IS SO DESPERATE THAT ITS TURNING TO COUNTRY MUSIC!

NEVER WAS THERE A TIME WHEN A PEOPLE SO NEEDED GOD.

WE ARE A COUNTRY AND A PEOPLE WHO HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING UN ...
