[MUSIC INTRO]

ANNOUNCER: Welcome Ladies and Gentlemen to Faith Booster’s TV. And here’s your host, John Truheart!

[AUDIENCE APPLAUDS]

JOHN TRUHEART: Have problems with your faith? No problem, trust God!

[AUDIENCE GASPS]

That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, the answer to your problem is found in two simple words: trust God.

Tornado tore your house apart around you?

No problem! God has something bigger and better for you! Just trust God!

Problems with your teenagers at home?

Hey, God can handle that one, too! Just, c’mon, say it with me, ladies and gentlemen...

ALL: TRUST GOD! applause

JOHN TRUHEART: Okay, you might be asking, “how can I trust God when my life is going down the drain?”

AUDIENCE: shouts YEAH!

JOHN TRUHEART: Well, ladies and gentlemen I have the answer for you tonight! It’s so simple that you won’t believe it. I have the guar-an-teed way of making your faith grow exponentially overnight!

AUDIENCE: gasps How?

JOHN TRUHEART: It’s as simple as taking a small violet pill. These will double your faith and triple your ability to trust God!

[CLOSE UP ON THE LARGE BOTTLE WITH AN EIGHT-POINTED STAR FLIES TO THE TOP RIGHT-HAND CORNER OF THE SCREEN AS THE PRICE $29.99 FLASHES]

That’s right, folks, you can get fifty pills for the one-time price of $29.99 only if you call today!

Darrel shook his head at the infomercial as he turned off the television. Why did people have to make faith and trusting God something so extreme? He snorted as he reached for his Bible and went to his favorite chapter, Hebrew 11. He silently began to read, as he waited for word on a job, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see...”

LOL, I like that you touched on a serious problem and wrapped in humor.

Good job -and oh so true -it is simple :) Nicely done.
Julie Arduini04/20/07
This was a good one because how many if they saw that infomercial would pick up and call and yet refuse a request to read from His Word? It was an excellent point humorously made.

It's too bad that some people really do look at God only as a magical answer to problems instead of our Savior who loves us and is our closest friend. You have a good conclusion.

Your format was creative. Your title drew me. Good job! I wonder...does the phone number spell anything?
joe hodson04/24/07
Never mind...MYBIBLE. I just reread it.

Clever format - and I love how you shared a very important truth with humor. Great stuff!
Val Clark04/25/07
Short and to the point. I wasn't sure where it was going till the last para and that's a good thing.
