Because today’s writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. We found a professor with his name at the University of Minnesota Duluth, but it’s a common name and the professor probably isn’t our man. We’ll use only the writer’s first name, which is Tom. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
It is amazing how many News Tribune readers write in denying the existence of God. This includes the Feb. 14 letter, “Existence of God can’t be proven.” They say there is no proof. The Bible says the heavens declare the glory of God.
The bible says the heavens are proof? Actually, when carefully studied with modern instruments, the heavens declare the Big Bang. But Tom has an ark-load of other evidence to offer. For example:
Well, just look at the sun rise over Lake Superior some morning or watch it set in the evening. Or how about the northern lights? Or when there is a sky full of stars? Or what about the beauty of our North Shore? That sounds like nature declaring something!
See? We told you Tom had evidence. Let’s read on:
How can anyone deny his existence? How about the birth of a beautiful baby?
Yeah — how about that? Tom continues:
Fools say there is no God. They say there is no proof. Time and time again science proves the accuracy of the Bible.
Can’t argue about that! Not with Tom, anyway. Here’s more:
If there is no God, then why do people get upset over nothing? Isn’t it illogical and foolish to get so worked up over something or someone that isn’t there or doesn’t exist?
Your Curmudgeon isn’t upset about God. It’s ghastly reasoning that bothers us. Moving along:
The Bible says God has set eternity in the hearts of men and women. This is why people get upset. Deep down, they know God is there. Their pride and arrogance get in the way.
Admit it, dear reader. Put aside your pride and arrogance. Deep down, you know Tom is right. And now we come to the end:
The Bible says there will be scoffers and mockers before Jesus comes back. Jesus is the only way to the father. Receive him now before it is too late. By all these doubting letters I read, it sounds like he is on his way.
Okay, dear reader. You’ve been warned. Now it’s up to you.
