Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote him by using his full name. His first name is Larry. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary and some bold font for emphasis. Here we go!
From time to time I’ve seen doubts expressed as to whether or not God even exists. It seems that corruption grows and our nation drifts further and further from God.
Doubts? Corruption? How horrible! What’s to be done about it? Larry says:
So is there a God? Yes! God is the only thing that ultimately makes sense! We humans are natural creatures in a natural world. The natural cannot create itself to begin with (even though some can reproduce).
This is good! Let’s read on:
The natural cannot come out of nowhere on its own. I’ve heard man has tried to make that happen with no success, and even if he were to succeed, it still would have had to have that help — not on its own.
Yes — nothing we do changes the ultimate necessity for the supernatural! Larry continues:
But man wasn’t there in the beginning anyway, which leaves God as the only logical answer, the only source — the creator. Only the supernatural (something above and beyond the natural) could create the natural.
It makes perfect sense! Here’s more:
“In the beginning God created…” How totally true and profound this declaration from the Bible actually is! It is backed by science and logic. There is no conflict between science and God! Science simply tells us how God did it (and still is doing it). Evolution? If that’s the way God did it, then so be it! The most important thing to understand is that God was and is behind it.
Larry is absolutely right! But one question remains:
So you ask, “But where did God come from?”
Larry has the answer at the end of his letter:
How could God come FROM anywhere? Where did that “anywhere” come from, and so and so on…? You can trace everything back to God, but you can’t go back any farther. It all begins and ends with the infinite, eternal, self-existent God — the Alpha and the Omega!
Your Curmudgeon is truly overwhelmed! Now we understand — with perfect clarity. And so do you, dear reader. The answer to everything is Oogity Boogity!
