The Eye Opener

Monday, Oct. 23, 2017

“Why can’t that guy get the Program? He is down and out, he has taken a terrible beating, just what is the matter?”

We try to analyze that man, his mental capacity, his home life, his employment, his environment, and the answer just isn’t there.

Have we improperly delivered the message?

The chances are he isn’t ripe – he still wants to drink.

He cannot see the light, but he is probably further away from it than you think. Maybe it just isn’t dark enough yet.
