This is a letter to our friends –
From 85 to 20 somethings
My kids were pre-school aged when prayer was removed from public schools in the 60’s. Can you think of a better way for a society to teach a generation that God was irrelevant in preparing for life? Ask yourself (those in your 20’s) – Did it work?
Dear young people – Those of you who have accepted that God is irrelevant, have been robbed, mislead, cheated, lied to, and used, by a godless society that sees you as “cookie-cutter” tools for building a “great society”.
If God is irrelevant, what standard is left by which to decide what is “right” and what is “wrong”? Who is to say that your opinion is any better than the next person’s? Indeed there are universal laws of nature – “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” “Care for those in need.” -BUT- Laws of nature are discovered by individual observation and reason. Thus, your conclusions may be different from another’s. You are all adrift in a sea of relativism where there are no fixed points.
Every person on earth knows there is a higher power than himself that is governing the universe. Many are choosing to hold that truth under as one would hold under a struggling drowning man.
On the other hand, there really is a creator God, who really does want the very best for each one of us. He is that truth that is struggling, against human nature, for the surface. Short of violating your liberty of choice, He has done and is doing everything He can to get your attention.
You do not need a Bible, a church membership, -anything- all you need is to acknowledge what you really know is true – and submit to it! The result will be life-changing. Suddenly, absolutes begin to make sense. There really is a right and wrong.
You were placed upon this earth for a purpose – to love God, then love others. It only works in that order!
“Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.’”
