In 1934, King Alexander of Yugoslavia landed in France for an official visit. Before he left his warship, he dressed in the full uniform of an admiral of the navy. Finding that the uniform’s tunic did not fit easily over his bulletproof vest, he took the vest off. Thus, when he entered the special automobile which met him at the dock, his protective armor was gone. A few minutes later, an assassin’s bullet pierced his uniform and entered the breast of the king. The king died. One of the first assassinations to be caught on film. This didn’t have to happen. If he would have just worn his bulletproof vest. But he was more interested in looking good than in being good.

Without Jesus Christ and his breastplate we are going to be injured and we will not be able to recover. We will die eternally without Christ.
