What does it do?

It’s got an important job. It keeps dirt out of the engine.

You know, you have a filter too.

What do you mean?

It’s the Holy Ghost. It helps you know when what you’re watching or reading isn’t good.

Right! The Holy Ghost helped us keep bad stuff out of our brains—just like a filter!

Yeah, it’s not like you can throw your old brain away and get a new one at the store!
