One Million Dollars

February 1, 2012

If you were buying a microwave and vacuum cleaner from Wal-Mart, would you try and pay for your $476.00 purchase using a million dollar bill?  Probably not, but police say Michael Anthony Fuller insisted he could pay for his vacuum cleaner and microwave oven with a $1-million bill.
Fuller insisted the bill was real but the problem is, that there is no such thing as a million dollar bill.  Police later arrested Fuller and charged him with attempting to obtain property by false pretence and uttering a forged instrument.  Apparently million dollar frauds aren’t as uncommon as you might think.  Just this this past summer, a Pennsylvania man was charged with trying to use a fake $1 million bill to purchase marijuana.  I wonder who complained?
We don’t know where Mr. Fuller obtained the bill, but he seemed to be quite convinced that his money was real and he was sincere in his belief, but that didn’t make the bill any more real. 
There are all kinds of folks out there who will try to use the spiritual equivalent of a million dollar bill to gain eternal life, and it doesn’t matter how sincere they are in their belief, it won’t make their beliefs anymore real. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
