"Did you resist wearing glasses? If so, what changed your mind?"
This story developed out of that, and is now offered in a slightly touched-up form.
Woe unto them that defy Divine Providence!!!
Blessed are they that resist the devices of the Evil One!!!
Verily, it is laid upon me that I prophesy, and speak, and warn them
that seek to see that which GOD hath decreed they shall not see.
By using spectacles and other the like snares of the Enemy,
they walk in the ways of our first parents who sought that which was forbidden,
and ate the fruit that GOD had decreed they should not eat.
