Because the letter-writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote her by using her full name. Actually, we’re not even told her full name. Her first name is Jennie, described at the end as “a long-time resident of Fredericktown, an eclectic gatherer of stories, information, and experiences to share with whoever would like to read them.” Isn’t that sweet? We’ll give you some excerpts from her letter, enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
Nobody intends to be “gullible,” but sometimes we are eased right into it, by our very own beliefs. We tend to trust that all doctors, ministers, police, scientists, etc., etc. are trust-worthy and on our side; that they are concerned with our welfare and standing by to help us. Not so. Some are one hundred percent trustworthy, and some are lacking.
We can’t argue with that. What’s the point? We’re told:
I can think of lots of examples to take onto the stump with me, but I’ll hold it down to two for this time: that will be medical records and evolution.
That’s a strange pairing. We’ll skip whatever it is that Jennie has to say about medical records. Let’s get to the evolution. She says:
The other thing I want to mention, is the audacity that some people show, to think they know more and better than the Almighty Creator and Savior of all.
Yes — some people are really outrageous about that. Jennie continues:
The rub is that people believe them because they claim “science” is behind them in this lie. Many who buy into the theory of evolution do not bother to read the Bible and see what God’s explanation really is.
The fools! Here’s more:
Some read it and discard the Holy Word, to put their stock in a theory began maybe 200 years ago devised by Charles Darwin.
Darwin published Origin of Species in 1859. Well, that’s almost 200 years ago. Moving along:
Others ignore it, thinking it doesn’t matter which way you believe. However this is very wrong. If this belief doesn’t mean to discredit God, why else would Satan be pushing it so hard?
Good question! Another excerpt:
Of course it matters when you essentially say that God doesn’t know what really happened in the beginning and that He was not the Creator, as He said he was.
Yeah! God said He’s the Creator. What more do you want? On with the letter:
Satan hopes that people will decide if they can’t trust God on that subject, how can they trust Him for anything else; salvation from their sins, help throughout their lives, deliverance from evil that is beyond mortal man?
You gotta be an idiot to trust Satan! And now we come to the end:
Oh yes, it matters. Souls are at stake. This is the reason we need to be concerned and to do whatever we can to stand up for God and His Word.
There you are, dear reader. Do you trust God, or Satan? It’s a big decision. Thanks for the letter, Jennie!
