Son of a Gypsy

Maria and her sons are experts in the art of robbery and coercion. Through years of practice, they have not only sharpened their skills in these areas but also hardened their consciences. Thus they easily force the Monkees to steal the Maltese Vulture for them, remain serenely unrepentant even when arrested, and even steal from the Monkees (and kidnap Peter) on their way to prison. The Bible warns us over and over to keep our consciences clear before God and to pay attention to the conviction of the Holy Spirit when we do wrong. "Fight the good fight, holding on to faith and a good conscience. Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith" (I Timothy 1:19; see also Acts 24:16; I Corinthians 10:28, 15:33; Hebrews 9:14, 10:22; I Peter 3:16).
