Being Gullible
By Tom Moore

A freshman at Eagle Rock Junior High won first prize at the Greater Idaho Falls Science Fair. In his project he urged people to sign a petition demanding strict control or total elimination of the chemical "dihydrogen monoxide." And for plenty of good reasons, since:

1. It can cause excessive sweating and vomiting.

2. It is a major component in acid rain.

3. It can cause severe burns in its gaseous state.

4. Accidental inhalation can kill you.

5. It contributes to erosion.

6. It decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes.

7. It has been found in tumors of terminal cancer patients.

He asked 50 people if they supported a ban of the chemical.

Forty-three (43) said yes, six (6) were undecided, and the last one? Well, only one (1) knew that the chemical, dihydrogen monoxide, was water (H2O).

The title of his prize-winning project: "How Gullible Are We?"
There are many in the religious world who are just as gullible. Millions always believe, without ever investigating, what their preacher espouses from the pulpit. Many would not know the difference between truth and error if it slapped them in the face.

 Friends, that is why we need to be like those noble Bereans, where of them it is said, "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so" (Acts 17:11). Being gullible is what leads to religious error that will damn one's souls.

Think About It!
