The Red Tie Club
Synopsis: A man trying to get into a club finds his way blocked by the doorman, who refuses to give him admission until he meets the membership requirement: having a Red Tie. A good parable about man’s efforts to earn his way into Heaven. The doorman, Mr. Delaw represents The Law, (even his name says it) which keeps us out of Heaven since no-one has ever kept it perfectly, except Jesus, who gives us Grace. Mr. King represents Jesus, the King of Kings, who can get us into heaven when we accept His way, which is through the blood, which is what the Red Tie represents. The guy tries to get in by his works, and then providing his own red tie, or his own righteousness, which in the sight of God is as filthy rags. Only when he asks for the Red Tie from Jesus, which represents receiving salvation by faith, can he have access into fellowship with God.
