You may be wondering: What is a “consumer alert” doing on a blog that focuses on religion? Perhaps you never thought about it this way, but religion involves a transaction. There is an exchange taking place. The Christian missionary is encouraging you to give the
devotion of your heart to Jesus and he is promising you eternal life in return for what you have given.
I may have offended you by comparing religion to a financial transaction. You may be thinking that this is a crass, materialistic and inappropriate way to talk about religious worship. I am not planning to apologize. I see it as my duty to explain the truth as I
understand it. If this parable achieves the aim that one person attains one iota of clarity in this weighty issue, I would be remiss if I were to withhold it from him or her.
