In response to a recent post/challenge to all agnostics/atheist, Tim posted a song that was really good to listen too. But is said to Let the mystery be, let everyone just believe what they want to and live in the ‘we agree to agree’ world of letting it be. What is wrong with that thinking?
If I had billions of dollars, and you had none, and I called you friend or you my family member—if I really cared about you would I not want to help you? If you were starving, or had no clothes, if you had no home, and I had a mansion, filled with enough food and clothes to feed a multitude—should I not open my doors and say ‘come, there is plenty to share?”
Because I know, not just believe, in an awesome source of all Wisdom, Mercy and Love—who has made available to me and all ask—all answers to life, the way to live that brings peace and joy, the power needed to rise above any situation that seems impossible---well, think about it. If I love you, if you are truly my friend or my family—should I not open the doors to these riches beyond compare? Because of love I will say “here, come, and take and be well, be happy, be strong, be free, be alive, be loved.” That is what any person would do, wouldn’t they?
I know also, because of experience and help given, that The Word that God speaks, leads and guides me and warns me. When He tells me that those invited, who gave excuses and turned away, these will NEVER eat of the banquet prepared—when I read that, if I love you then I will Never stop in what it takes to reach you before it is too late. As you know, your life could end today. Do you really want to face a “mystery” of what is beyond when your spirit passes through the door of eternity?
What is sad for me, is the thought that if you failed to come knocking on the door to all the riches I have to share, will my eternity be complete, full of joy beyond all imagination—if you are not there?
That is a question, I am now seeking wisdom about. The answer—“Forgive us Father, for we do not know what we do, we are too wounded to love or care about another’s loss.”
