The title of this delightful piece is Another Caleb. We’ll be brief here, as there’s not much to say after we’ve told you what happened The bold font was added by us:
The Caleb described in the Bible (in the books of Joshua and Deuteronomy) was one of the great warriors of the faith who “wholly followed the Lord God.” Oh that there would be more Calebs in the world today!
Where is this thing going? Let’s read on:
I did meet another Caleb recently: a young Caleb who is zealous for following the Lord.
We can’t wait to hear more. Let’s continue:
Caleb Elliott is a remarkable young man. Only at 13 years of age, he spent 2–3 years mowing lawns, pulling weeds, mulching, etc. to earn enough money ($1,000) —
We interrupt to say that Caleb sounds like a good kid. Now let’s get back to that sentence to find out what happened to Caleb’s earnings:
— to get a lifetime pass to our Creation Museum.
What? Here’s more:
Now, Caleb could have used a guest museum pass that belongs to his parents (they are museum charter members and thus have a lifetime pass with guest passes) to visit the museum as many times as he wanted, but he wanted to have his own lifetime pass (and its associated guest passes, for his friends to use).
There’s more, if you want to learn about Caleb’s family. But you’ve already read the important part. Ol’ Hambo scored a fast $1K, and he got it from a kid’s lawn-mowing money. Truly, this is a story with a happy ending.
Isn’t creationism grand?
