I’m not a religious person. I was raised and confirmed Lutheran. I have nothing against Christianity. I do believe in a God of some type. But I’m no longer a 100% believer. I think there are too many conveniences out there that need further explanation for me to fall back to the side of the fence with the rest of the flock.
However, one thing is certain. In the past few days, I have received the messages loud and clear. Wake up! Pay attention! Blah blah blah…hey, is that birthday cake?
Where was I? Oh yes. God is sending me messages.
The first one I received was on Monday. I shrugged it off as spam. It came in the form of an email with the subject: “Get out of debt! We’ll show you how!” The contents of the email were blank. The sender’s name? Well, that doesn’t really matter. Because I’m certain that God or Jesus do not have email addresses, so they would use a proxy anyhow.
Sign #2 came via a posting in FreeCycle, which I unsubscribed from 3 weeks ago. It came on Tuesday. It said:
OFFERED: 1 statue of Virgin Mary, 1 oil painting of Jesus in gold-finish frame … 1 old fashioned credit cart imprint machine…
There were other items listed such as a blanket, a jewelry box and some plastic laundry baskets.
There were no other FreeCycle listings before or since. I previously received 100+ per day, so I know this isn’t a case of, “Oh, they didn’t get my unsubscribe email.”
I logged onto Facebook this morning to do some poking around and I saw it, clear as day. I knew then what the previous two days have been leading up to. Jesus wants me to get a Visa.
What do you suppose the APR on a card like that is?
