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 Jim. Excerpts from his letter will be enhanced with our Curmudgeonly commentary, some bold font for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]. Here we go!
Did you miss it? It was Easter. If you thought Easter was bunnies and eggs, you missed it. If you thought Easter was for Christians only, you missed it. If you thought Easter was particular to one group or outdated, or an extension of some pagan ritual, you missed it. Easter is universal; it is a celebration for every human being.
How is that possible? Jim says:
There is only one race, the human race. [Yeah!] Whether we admit it or not we are all children of the same God. And God loves every one of us. There is only one thing that separates you from the love of God – you. [Gasp!] God is revealed in your conscience. God is revealed in everything in the physical world. [Wow!] God is revealed in His word. If you don’t see God in your mind, in your senses and in common sense – you missed it.
Did you miss it, dear reader? Well, it’s not too late. Jim tells us:
The more science and technology learn about the physical sciences the more obvious it becomes that God exists. [It’s obvious!] Only a fool says in his heart there is no God.
You’re not a fool, are you, dear reader? Jim continues:
As Americans, we believe we were endowed by our Creator. [Right!] It is the Creator who longs for you to welcome the Holy Spirit into your heart. There is not one human issue, problem, catastrophe, or experience in this life that cannot be resolved through your acceptance of God and the word of God. Seek and you shall find. Knock and it will be opened to you.
Wowie — all problems solved! Here’s our last excerpt:
Just as every human being is a child of God, every human being needs to recognize how to be welcomed into the realm of God. That brings us back to Easter. [Neatly done!] If you saw Easter as anything less than the fullfilment of the promise of God to redeem your broken body, mind and soul, you missed it.
Jim’s last paragraph is a bit too preachy, so we’ll leave him here. Impressive stuff, huh?
