The Pious Rabbit

March 16th, 2017 by G.

A rabbit went a little way down a small woodland path, then stopped and turned as if to poke into some bushes on the side.

A serpent further down the path, perceiving it, hissed “Stay on the strait and narrow path!”  The rabbit, who was pious, desisted from leaving the path and continued to hop down it.

As it came even with the serpent, the reptile hissed, “Be still, and know that He is God!”  The rabbit reverently ceased to move and composed himself for contemplation.

The serpent approached, but fearing that the rabbit would see him and take to flight, hissed, “at the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow!” Somewhat perplexed as how best his own rabbit anatomy would allow him to comply with this scripture, of which he had just been reminded, the rabbit settled on prostrating himself to the ground.

As the serpent approached nearer, the rabbit heard the rustlings and asked himself out loud, Can this be a snake approaching?”  The serpent gasped as offended.  “How unkind!” it said.  “Should you not love your neighbor as yourself?”  With that, the serpent struck.

The rabbit, imagining himself engaged in pious exercises when in reality only engaged in folly, died and was eaten.


Moral: The Savior never said, heed your enemies.

I cross-posted this as a comment at Millennial Star blog:

I gave a link-back, but I regret that I didn’t directly attribute it to G in the comment. Sorry. I clarified that G was the author in a later comment on the thread.

I am reminded that Satan’s third temptation of Christ in the wilderness was supported by Scripture.

I once had an emotionally abusive boyfriend who used these tactics on me. When I would protest that he was treating me like dirt, he’d tell me, “You’re Mormon, though, right? Don’t you believe in forgiveness?”

Beth, I hope you followed that up with a good roundhouse kick to the head.

On that note, I noticed that commentors who continue to use the SJW playback, are dismissed out of hand. Even if they just sound like it.

I was recently looking at the persecution that the early church had to endure. Our current period of calm is the anomaly. The SJW are going to press on us worse and worse, when we resist.

On the abuse note, tonight I heard someone talk about their narcissistic and sociopath mother, and the ways they twist what you have said, among many other things.

And as I listened, I thought that was exactly what it is like talking with SJWs. They aren’t trying to get along, they are trying to destroy. It makes for a very dysfunctional relationship. With that kind of a person, you have to just avoid them, or you start enabling.
