We were alerted to today’s letter-to-the-editor by our clandestine operative with the code name of Gwyllm — a hobbit name. The letter appears in The Laurinburg Exchange of Laurinburg, North Carolina. It’s titled Pointing out the path toward man’s greatest folly, and the newspaper has a comments feature.
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. His first name is Manuel. This is the sixth time we’ve written about one of his letters. He’s from Oklahoma but his letters get published in newspapers all over the place. For his earlier gems, see #891: The End Is Coming, and that links to the others. Excerpts from his newest letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!
Believing in man, instead of God the Creator, is Man’s greatest folly. [Yes!] Man’s failure to learn and teach God’s Word, throughout the world, as He directed, has resulted in the world we live in today. A world gone mad! A world that goes against God and His will for man, whom He created in his image. A world mostly ignorant of God and “The Word of God.”
The world is a mess and Manuel has told us the reason. Next he says:
The beginning history of humanity and the universe, and its creation, was told to Moses by God. Moses wrote the first five books of the Holy Bible, “The Word of God” while almost in constant contact with the Creator himself for over forty years!
Skipping a few paragraphs of signs and wonders used to convince Moses, Manuel says:
The Bible tells of two occasions when Moses climbed up the mountain and spent 40 days and 40 nights with God, during which Moses did not drink water or eat bread. Moses spent more time with God, on Earth, than any other human being.
No wonder Moses believed! Manuel continues:
As witnessed by the apostles, Peter, James, and John, they saw Moses (accompanied by the prophet Elijah) talking to Jesus some 14 centuries later, at what is called the Mount of Transfiguration (Matthew Chapter 17).
The apostles saw Moses. That’s amazing — absolutely amazing! Let’s read on:
From the information above, one would think it is enough, for Man to believe in God, and that there is life after death. [How much more evidence could anyone possibly want?] Yet, they say that, “Scholarly consensus sees Moses as a legendary figure and not a historical person, while retaining the possibility that a Moses-like figure existed.”
What fools those skeptics are! Another excerpt:
Apparently, the miseducated scholars, rather than believe in God, and the Word of God, believe the artistic sequence drawing of an Ape, followed by sequent [sic] drawing changes, and eventually turning into a Human. [That’s absurd!] But an Ape is an Ape, and a Human Being is a Human Being! THANK GOD FOR THE DIFFERENCE!!
What a great letter this is! Here’s more:
It has been said that Charles Darwin thought it was absurd to believe that the human eye “could have been formed by natural selection.” [What?] But it is far more absurd to disbelieve God, the Creator, who created everything, including us, than to believe Darwin, and his ungodly “Theory of Evolution”!
We debunked that ancient clunker about eye evolution ten years ago — see Evolution of the Eye. And now we come to the shocking end:
Man’s unbelief leads to HELL!
Indeed it does! And that was another great letter from Manuel.
