Armor of God

Theme: Christians prepare for spiritual battle by wearing the armor of God. (Ephesians 6:11-17)

Characters: 2 actors, male or female
Length: 2.5 – 3 minutes
Scene/Props: Tin foil that is shaped into a helmet, a breastplate, sword and shield.

Synopsis:
In this funny man, straight man routine, Melvin wears armor that he has fashioned out of tin foil. The straight man helps him understand that the scripture passage in Ephesians 6:11-17 is talking about a spiritual battle, not a physical one.

Note: We used the Minister of Music as the straight man, but it could be anyone.

Excerpt:
Melvin ENTERS wearing tin foil that is an obvious, home-made job. He practices fighting an imaginary enemy. The straight man watches, patiently waiting for him to pause.

Minister: Melvin, I’m afraid to ask what the purpose is for that get-up, so let me guess. You’re preserving your rugged good looks.

Melvin: (poses proudly) Ageless beauty needs no assistance.

Minister: Uh, you’re filming your own science fiction B movie. (Melvin shakes his head with a sense of smug, self-assurance) C movie. C-. This is a passing grade, right?

Melvin: I’m preparing for battle.

Minister: Okay, that would be my very last guess. (inspects the tin foil) Well, you obviously spared no expense in preparation. Is this for a reality T.V. chef cooking show?

Melvin: It’s for the forces of evil.

Minister: That head chef can be a pretty evil character all right. Maybe that’s why the show isn’t called heaven’s kitchen. So, did you leave any tin foil for the left-overs?

Melvin: This doesn’t have anything to do with cooking. I learned in a Bible Study that when you encounter the forces of evil, you need to wear armor. So I’m armed, dangerous and ready to engage.

Minister: I’d say you’re wearing enough to foil most attacks. All you need now is some Tupperware.
