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 Harry. 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!
Is COVID-19 a warning from God? [Is it? Maybe Harry has the answer!] How long does the world think it can go on killing babies because they’re “unplanned”? America has murdered 60 million babies since 1973. The world murders that many every year.
The connection seems obvious — to Harry. He says:
How long does the world think it can go on worshipping sports figures and entertainers? We pay these idols more in one day than our firemen and police make in one year, and these first-responders put their lives on the line every day. This goes on while millions go hungry and homeless.
Egad, millions are hungry and homeless because of sports figures and entertainers. This is an outrage! Harry tells us:
Coronavirus has brought the world’s up-side-down-lifestyle to a halt. [That’s a good thing!] Science and government are trying to defeat this unseen enemy so we can continue to live as we were. [The fools!] The news media has turned this into a political fiasco. One party says this. The other that. People are confused. It’s the blind leading the blind. [Yes, but what’s the answer?] We need to see that this is a spiritual matter before it’s too late.
Yes — oh yes! It’s a spiritual matter. Harry continues:
This virus is a killer. It’s taking many out before their time. We don’t like to talk about death, it’s not the positive thing to do. But this virus is forcing us to think about it.
What can we do? Let’s read on:
The Scriptures tell us that God used a pestilence at times to warn the people of their sinful lifestyle and bring them back to Him. He told the people to repent, turn from their sin and pray, then He would heal their land.
Ah, there may be hope after all. But you have to turn away from sin. Here’s more:
God has given the world the answer to this virus problem and all the other problems in the world. The answer is God’s Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus died on the cross for our forgiveness. If we fall in love with Jesus, God will heal our land.
Ooooooooooooh! Another excerpt:
The world is possibly seeing the “opening act.” After all this we surely don’t want to see the “main event.” [No!] Nobody wants to go into eternity and land in hell. Nobody wants to see loved ones and friends land there either.
Come on, Harry — what should we do? Ah, he gives us the answer right at the end:
God loves us and wants us to live with Him forever. Turn to God through His Son Jesus. Do it now before it’s too late.
That’s it, dear reader. Now you know what to do. Hey — it wasn’t part of his letter, but we can’t help wondering: Do you think Harry is a creationist?
