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 Jake. 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!
How is it said? History repeats itself and those that ignore it cause it to repeat itself. What are some things in the history of the world we should remember, and what was the cause?
Jake is going to give you an amazing romp through history. He begins:
Only a few thousand years after creation [Hee hee!] “the wickedness of man was great in the earth and…the thoughts of people were evil continually”. The great flood occured [sic] saving only Noah and his family. Yes, this is history, not mythology. Check it out scientifically if you doubt it. [You heard the man; check it out!] Some years later, men decided to build a tower whose top is in the heavens and make a name for themselves to avoid the command of the Creator to inhabit the earth. They were scattered throughout the earth as a result.
Wowie — Jake really knows his history! Then he says:
Later in Egypt, the people assigned gods for themselves which represented every phase of life. The famous 10 plagues and the Passover (Still a day of rememberance [sic] of that historical time today) occurred as a judgment on the Egyptians.
Yes, we heard about it. Hey — Jake is just getting started. Here’s more:
On Israel because of idolatry, and complaining about eating qual [Eating what?], and refusing to enter the promised land, after murmuring again, and when King David sinned. It occured [sic] to others also as with the Philistines. These were denounces as These were denounced as judgments for rebellions against the creator God.
Strangely worded, but impressive nevertheless. After that, Jake moves forward to modern times and tells us:
Persecution and pestilence are history. The holocaust, the great depression from 1929-1939 followed by the roaring twenties.
The holocaust preceded the roaring twenties? And the great depression too? Okay, if Jake says so. He continues:
Amos the prophet told of the many ways God tried to get the people’s attention, giving them wars, loss of sons, droughts, famines, blight, and mildew [Mildew? Gasp!] and still the people would not return to God, who has promised to bless His people.
If mildew doesn’t get your attention, then there’s no hope for you. Let’s read on:
In the U.S.A. where they have been killing babies for over 50 years, teaching evolution in our schools, (even though we are not to establish a religion in government) and now promoting same-sex marriage.
Those hell-bound Darwinists are a bunch of baby-killing perverts! We’re getting near the end now. Here’s another excerpt:
Will we blame God for our refusal to acknowledge Him? [That would be crazy!] Our founding fathers in the forming of this nation wrote, “We are endowed by our Creator for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” A nation blessed above most nations and for many years was acknowledged as a “Christian nation.”
Yes, we were — but look at us now! Jake finishes his brilliant letter with a profound question:
How will history read fo [Huh?] this pandemic and will we return to our Creator as our God?
Can you answer Jake’s final questions, dear reader? Or are you too much lost in your sinful ways to give it any thought? The choice is yours.
