After examining the Resurrection Leawood Baptismal Font:

display the Figure of Baptismal Font;

say "It is important for a Christian to remember their baptism. This means following Erasmus and his thoughts on the Christian Knight, although William really needs to finish this work. When remembering the baptism, they show people love. Love really does conquer all.";

say "[paragraph break]In his own life, William Moore's bigoted father, who was an atheist, had his heart melted to dark-skinned individuals by simply holding William's first-born who is half Togolese. By simply refusing to give her up and falling asleep with her in his arms, William's father recanted towards the end of his life of bigotry towards dark-skinned individuals. The rest of his father's bigotry remained to be determined if it was 'cleansed' from his life prior to his passing."

After examining the Resurrection Leawood Stone Water Feature of Narthex West:

display the Figure of Stone Water Feature of Narthex West;

say "It's a common misconception that there are angels there to rescue you at the beckon and call and provide inspiration. This is likely a carry over from non-Christian religious beliefs. Instead, there is only God to rescue you and the Breath of God to inspire you and to guide you as it reaches your body.".

After examining the Resurrection Leawood Stone Water Feature of Narthex Center:

display the Figure of Stone Water Feature of Narthex Center;

say "There is no 'trinity' per se. Breaking it down, the godhead is still Jesus in the personage of God because, in Judaism, only God may forgive sins against himself, which Jesus did with impunity in the eyes of the Jewish people of the day. God is still the deity. The 'Holy Ghost' is not a part of God but of God. It is incorrectly mistranslated. Instead, it is the Breath of God that is of God, not to be worshipped.";

say "[paragraph break]One criticism of the Apostles William has is that they used 'magical' means to make smoke appear on Pentacost. Their motivations are lost with time, but it's possible because they knew people would pay attention.";

say "[paragraph break]So, in essence, there is a trinity but not in the fashion used to by Christians. Calling the Breath of God from which we all draw inspiration and hope the 'Holy Ghost' has a different meaning in the modern world.".

After examining the Resurrection Leawood Stone Water Feature of Narthex East:

display the Figure of Stone Water Feature of Narthex East;

say "People need to do good works. It doesn't guarantee a positive place in the afterlife even in the slightest. 'Faith without works is dead' instead is the belief. How can one contribute? They can 'just be there' for someone without saying 'just trust in Jesus' in times of crisis. Another way is to write stories or interactive fictions detailing particuilar beliefs.";

say "[paragraph break]These are examples of passive, in the case of the latter, or active, in the case of the former, evangelizing. Passive has the biggest positive impact.".

After examining Resurrection Leawood Altar Table:

display the Figure of Altar Table;

say "As an aside, Christ showed compassion and charity to humanity. As a part of this, He forcibly made people recognize human dignity and this is necessary for the Christian life. It does not matter what people look like or self-identify or even believe, outside being hateful people. This is, as the Christ so poignantly pointed out, the summation of the Law: to love everyone regardless and it is absolutely lost on most of Christianity.".

Understand "pray" as praying. Praying is an action applying to nothing.

Carry out praying:

say "You kneel down, close your eyes, and say a little prayer.";

if location of the player is Resurrection Leawood Stained Glass Window:

say "You have completed the quest and mission set forth. Hopefully, you're blessed somewhat by this.";

end the story.

Chapter 7 - The Game

The player is in Resurrection Leawood Narthex Center

After speech when the noun is Theophilius:

say "Theophilius smiles and says 'Welcome to the philosophies of William Moore in relation to Christianity!";

say "[paragraph break]The purpose of the interactive fiction is to expound my particular take on certain topics in Christianity. The take is esssentially orthodox and is rooted in reviewing potential misunderstandings brought on by outside influences that were undue but persist unto this day. Additionally, the interactive fiction will present certain criticisms. This is a work in progress.";

say "[paragraph break]It should be further noted that he chose this location of Resurrection, a Methodist Church, Leawood, Kansas mostly because it is from where he draws from the Breath of God (more on this later).";

say "[paragraph break]To find out more of the philisophies, wander around and interact with objects. Things will be revealed!'".
