Not only did I really like the re-telling of this story, but also the simple and perfect reasoning your MC gave:
"The man is obviously not a sinner because God doesn’t listen to sinners, and only God could make a blind man see. It’s really as simple as that."
Nice job!

Only a talented Faithwriter could characterize this story as Jesus healing with a Loogie! exceptionally well told and entertaining.

You did an excellent job of taking a Bible story and putting it in today's converational style. Loved the MC's voice throughout this piece. Right on topic with this one--hope to see this with a top ranking.
This is truly a unique retelling, creatively done.
An interesting way of telling this story-very creative.

Well I didn't know what a loogie was, but it became pretty obvious! I love this genre of retelling Bible tales and making them come alive, and this was a good one.

Very good, but you did a little time travel

"they threw me under the bus yesterday"

maybe should it have read they threw me to the lions, or under a wagon, or...?

But I liked it nevertheless. A different view of a story we all know.
