The breastplate of righteousness is not a real breastplate

I remember watching a movie a long time ago, where a man who is probably portrayed by William Hurt tells his daughter that the concept of love cannot be written in a book. It is not a tangible thing, and it must come from within. Which is why idolization was a big no-no starting with the book of Exodus. Even the Old Testament God knew symbolizing important concepts and ideas was nothing more than a waste of time.

Nothing worthwhile can ever be touched or seen, and if you really believe that it exists, you need not proof to convince you. It isn't something you can just forsake on a whim, either, or remove from your person like taking your wallet out of your pants.

That's exactly what these pajamas are like. They can be seen, and touched, and can be taken off and put in the laundry. The Armor of God it is not. And if you can't, without a mail order set of PJs, convince your kid of the strengths God gives everyone, get yourself to church and explore them yourself, because you've got problems.
