Oh dear. As is a habit I find hard to resist, I posted the following image to Facebook the other day…
To which my nephew, the minister, couldn’t resist going off on a rant about. First claiming that, without Jesus, Dr. Convit wouldn’t have had the abilities he had, and then going on to claim that “Jesus is the reason for hospitals, universities, and the printing press.” He then posed the question “Why is it so easy to embrace resentment, anger, hostility, superstition, occult, and aliens, and yet we have such a hard time with people who live by love?” WTF?!?!
He then went on to proclaim that, with the help of Jesus, he himself had helped many people return from the brink of death – including me, when I was in that coma a few years back and not expected to recover. As you might well imagine, I did not take that very well! This was my response…
I don’t get why this offends you so much Jerry. I posted this out of my love for what I see as the truth. From where I sit, it’s you who seem to “embrace resentment, anger, hostility, superstition, occult, and aliens!”
And while we’re delving into fantasy, did you know I was in “a very beautiful place” while I was in that coma – a “place” I sometimes wish I had remained when compared to the world I came back to. Now, if you’re going to insist of grabbing credit for you and your God for my return, are you also willing to accept some blame for returning me to a place that so often seems like Hell to me?
I love you to death my nephew but, as always, this is an area we should just agree to disagree – in peace…
His response to that wasn’t quite clear. I know he apologized for “offending” me and said that he still loved me. I hope that’s true. But I posted this image just in case… 😉
If you’re curious, I’ve linked those images to the blogs posts I borrowed them from… Of course, you know I couldn’t just leave it at that! 😳
I just couldn’t resist adding one more image. It’s from the same blog as the one at the top:
And they say it’s non-believers like me that are inspiring a world without morals!
I want ice water.
