DDT is an abbreviation for the pesticide known as dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane that was banned in 1972 due to its harmful effects on the environment and its connection as a cancer-causing agent. It was effective, but also deadly.
In recent years there has been a renaissance of interest and a growing fan-base in DDT. This form of DDT (Dirt Detection Technology) is not considered deadly, but very effective and healthy.
DDT is now associated with the IBOT Roomba series of vacuum cleaners. It uses Dirt Detection Technology (DDT) to distinguish between the cleaner and dirtier areas of a room, so it can use its patented 3 stage cleaning system to deep clean where needed.
As I read about the properties of this property cleaning device, I thought of God’s 3 stage cleaning system:
- The Holy Spirit: “He will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment (John 16:8).”
- The Word: “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the faith and correcting error, for re-setting the direction of a man’s life and training him in good living. The scriptures are the comprehensive equipment of the man of God and fit him fully for all branches of his work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).”
- Prayer: “Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting (Psalm 139:23-24).”
Casual cleaning is not always enough to get the job done. Instead of sweeping the dust under the carpet, we need to employ God’s 3 stage system of cleaning–DDT will get the job done.
