The Matrix – Part 3

The Red Pill

You dash down the road, searching frantically.  Where did he go?

Just before he disappears around the corner, you yell at the top of your lungs, “WAIT!”

He stops and you breathlessly hold out your hand.

“I don’t want the blue pill,” you hear your heart pounding in your head as you hastily thrust it back into his hand.

“Since I accepted you, Jesus, I have lived with the blue pill–life is the blue pill!”

Jesus, holds out the hand containing the red pill.  You reach for it, but he draws it back.

“Are you sure?” he asks, “It comes with a price.”


“Commitment.” he says softly.

Words again echo in your mind:  “As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Your hand closes upon the red pill.
