Default a modern day parable

A Parable
Once upon a time there were some scribes of the house of Ameedous, that were given the task of copying and translating 66 scrolls of their Master.. But these scribes were evil and loved the approval of men, and they weren’t content with their Master’s generous wages. So they devised a plan , treacherous and wicked in nature. “ Come, let discredit our Master by not faithfully copying His scrolls. Then our Master will be ruined and we can have what is His before men and they will pay us better wages and love us!
So they searched the land , looking for something to help them carry out their plan. They happened upon a merchant whose name was Saldenavit. He listened as they related their story and told them he had the perfect device to help them succeed without their Master ever knowing, “ this is a magic pen that will corrupt and destroy the meaning of your Master’s words.” THE SCRIBES WERE INCREDULOUS!
“How can that be? “ they asked .
“When ever you use it the pen will do different thing to help you complete your desired results, not just a few but an even ten!” Saldenavit exclaimed.
“Such as?” the scribe wondered aloud.
“Well, for starters-every so often the pen will insert an additional word into the text to completely pervert the meaning. This is it’s most valuable asset.”
“ so what, we can do that ourselves, this doesn’t sound as impressive as you claim,” they quipped.
“ah, but the pen has it’s own mind that will pick the most damaging place to insert just one single word that will throw all of your masters servants into slavery , so that He will have no workers” Sadenavit asserted. “everything else you get is just a bonus, here is a list of all of the pens wondrous features.”
He handed them the List:
1. Add words
2. omit words
3. change words from different copies
4. mistranslate words
5. Under-translate words
6.Translate a single word into many different words all throughout the scrolls.
7.Translate many different words into a single word all throughout the scrolls.
8. Magically go through 3 language translations. ( This feature can only be guaranteed through the first 39 of the 66 scrolls of the most popular copy).
9. But, when you get to that 40th scroll, there will be an invisible division so the continuity of the whole 66 scrolls, will be lost!
The scribes were puzzled, “ we see only 9 features here and you said 10?”
Saldenavit remarked apologetically,” My bad , I meant only 9.”
So the scribes asked “ Ok, what are the damages?”
“A mere 10,000 talents.”
“10,000 TALENTS! That seems inordinately steep for just a pen!”
But old Sal was unfazed ” a talent for each one of your master’s words. remember what you stand to gain, your master owns lands, cattle , sheep, gold ,silver, jewels, men , and all the wealth of the world! Take it or leave it.”
The scribes reasoned with each other, for a moment, only a moment, because their lust and greed blinded their reason. They gave no thought of their masters armies, who loved Him and would be faithful to their master even without pay because they loved Him. You see, He rescued them from an evil tyrant that treated them shamefully and hated them even though they were always good soldiers.
So they agreed on the price and said “we’ll take it”
As Saldenavit waved goodbye, he could only smile. Because what the evil scribes were unaware of was that Saldenavit also bore a grudge against their master. He thought to himself with smug satisfaction” man will they be surprised when that 10th feature kicks in and that 40th scroll starts.”
You see Sal knew if he had told them about the 10th feature the scribes would not understand how damaging it would prove to be
Because Saldenavit was the craftiest liar that had ever lived!

To be continued…… what could the 10th feature possibly be?….
Next the scribes begin their work

Does this master fellow by chance have the ability to speak personally to everybody he wants to without taking on the obvious risks of using fallible lackeys?

Default a modern day parable

Fantasy??

It is a parable:

Matthew 13:13
"Therefore I speak to them in parables; because while seeing they do
not see, and while hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.

Matthew 13:34
All these things Jesus spoke to the crowds in parables, and He did
not speak to them without a parable.

He did
not speak to them without a parable.

He did
not speak to them without a parable.




All these things Jesus spoke to the crowds in parables, and He did
not speak to them without a parable.



Matthew 13:35
This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet:" I WILL OPEN
MY MOUTH IN PARABLES;I WILL UTTER THINGS HIDDEN SINCE THE FOUNDATION
OF THE WORLD"

Mark 4:11
And He was saying to them, "To you has been given the mystery of the
kingdom of God,


but those who are outside get everything in parables,
but those who are outside get everything in parables
but those who are outside get everything in parables

1Cor.2:

6Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom,
however, not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are
passing away;

7but we speak God's wisdom in a (parable)mystery, the hidden
(parable) wisdom which God predestined before the ages to our glory;



Luke 8:10
And He said, " To you it has been granted to know the

mysteries mysteries mysteries mysteries mysteries



of the kingdom of God, but to the rest it is in parables, so that
SEEING THEY MAY NOT SEE, AND HEARING THEY MAY NOT UNDERSTAND.




Mark 4:13
He said to them, "Do you not understand this parable? How will you
understand all the parables?

HOW? HOW? HOW? HOW? HOW SANDY?

Jer 8:8
How how how how can you say, 'We are wise,
And the law of the LORD is with us'?
But behold, the lying pen of the scribes
Has made it into a lie.


have a nice Day
Kevin

It not fantasy. If you can decipher the parable it could spark a debate for those who believe at false stuff out there in the world.

Then the master is responsible for any resulting damage and probably should improve his planning abilities.
