In the 1950 Monaco Grand Prix, Juan Manuel Fangio was approaching a dangerous bend for the second time. As he rounded the bend, Fangio noticed that something was wrong. The faces of the spectators were all turned away from him. "If they are not looking at me," Fangio thought, "they must be looking at something more interesting around the corner." So he braked hard and carefully rounded the bend, where he saw that his split-second assessment had been accurate. The road was blocked by a massive pileup.

When we read the Bible we see that there is a massive pileup about around the bend. We can deny it's there--we can ignore the warning signs--but in the end we must deal with the situation.
