This is going around the internet in various forms. I thought it was worth sharing.
The Advent Virus
Satan sent this memo to his demons.
From: His Infernal Majesty
To: All Demons and Denizens of Death
WARNING……WARNING: ADVENT VIRUSBe on the alert for symptoms of inner Hope, Peace, Joy and Love. The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to this virus and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.
Some signs and symptoms of The Advent Virus:
- A tendency to think and act generusly and lovingly
- An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
- A loss of interest in judging other people.
- A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
- A loss of interest in conflict.
- A loss of the ability to worry.
- Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation and thankfulness.
- Contented feelings of connectedness with others and and with God.
- Frequent attacks of smiling.
- An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.
- An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.
- A realization that Jesus really is the son of our Enemy Above and the overwhelming desire to tell everyone about Him
Be warned that this virus is highly contagious. Once the humans in your sphere of temptation get exposed to God's love, full recovery is seldom possible. I urgently direct you to do your literal damnedestto cause them to focus on the materialistic side of the holidays. Allow stress to take over. Get them so busy that they don't have time to reflect on the birth of their Savior.
If this virus gets out of hand we could end up wit something terrible like "peace on Earth" -- and if that happens, let me assure you, there will be Hell to pay.
Do you have the Advent Virus? Will you spread it? How will guard against Satan's antidotes?
