Warning, you may be in danger of being duped by fake warnings! Fear
seems to be everywhere these days, but “perfect love drives out fear”
(1 John 4:18). If there is one bit of advice worth taking to heart it
is to be careful about signing petitions or joining causes unless you
know the facts. Do not let alarmism carry you away. Some people who are
afraid of anything try to scare everyone else. Some people just try to
take advantage of other people’s fears.
A high school student made up a petition and got thousands of people to
sign it demanding the government stop all use of the chemical
The petition is totally correct in
stating all the terrible things this
chemical can do:
The student found that 86 percent of the people he asked to sign the
petition were willing to do so. Only one person recognized this
terrible chemical was water.
Pull that one on your friends and have a good laugh when they find out
what it is. Oh, and be careful what you sign.
