Bargain of the Day: starve yourself with Jesus

by Feòrag

We've had One True Biblical diets before, but never this extraordinary package— The Bible's Way to Weight Loss: NEW $79 VALUE, which appears to be from a Christian version of Weight Watchers:

First Place Member Kit: The Bible's Way to Weight Loss

This kit is needed by every First Place group member to get started on the road to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. It contains the Member's Guide, the Choosing to Change book, 13 Commitment Records, 4 motivational audiotapes, the Prayer Journal and the Scripture Memory Verses: Walking in the Word-everything a person would need to learn how to lose weight sensibly and live a healthy, balanced lifestyle by putting Christ in first place. The only thing the member will need to purchase other than the kit ,is the appropriate Bible study

Hmmm, biblical slimming eh? Surely that is just wandering in the wilderness (or Maidstone as it is now called) and eating nothing but locusts for 40 days. $79 seems a bit steep.

Oh, I dunno. A pound of locusts a day for forty days... Then there's all that butter and garlic. Might run to a bit.

A pound of locusts a day? Ewww, too many legs!

(How many locusts make a pound anyway?)

Well, you can pluck the legs, I suppose. Leave one, though, as a handle for dipping into the garlic butter. Anyway, the more you have to work for your food, the more weight you lose.

How many locusts? Hm. They're not exactly heavy, so I'd have to say a hell of a lot. Look at it this way: more garlic butter.

Wax lyrical

Evangelism, witnessing and similar activitites go by one name here—advertising, and is no different from spam for viagra, penis enlargement products and pornography. We do not take advertising. If you want to advertise your imaginary friend, please spend your own money on your own web space to do so. Any attempts to use the comments section for advertisements will be deleted, and the perpetrator barred, unless they are particularly stupid, in which case I reserve the right to pinch an idea from Teresa Nielsen Hayden and delete all the vowels.

This is not a contacts site. If you are looking for help regarding a particular path, I suggest The Witches' Voice, which does operate a contacts service.

The same applies if you are using a word processor to compose your comment, then copying and pasting the text—either turn off curly quotes and avoid using em-dashes, or edit your comment after pasting to get rid of them.
