I’m an atheist, I don’t normally get religious correspondence, however, I had the most bizarre thing happen to me tonight. I received mail today (the old fashioned type from the post office), hand written addressed to me, which I opened whilst cooking dinner. Inside was a two page letter titled: The Importance of Jesus Christ. You can have a read of it yourselves here:
There are paragraphs labelled: Recognise (we are all sinners), The Importance of the Cross, What will happen to those who reject the Lord Jesus Christ? and, The search for forgiveness ends when we find Jesus Christ. Of course I don’t believe a single word of it, but I am damn curious who sent it to me?
As I said the letter has a hand written address, but there is no return address and no name or details on the letter. It was posted from my regional mail centre, so I’m suspecting one of my mates is having a joke, else I’ve annoyed some local fundie who’s worked out who I am?
OK, so that was strange enough, now comes the really bizarre thing. Shortly after opening the letter and sitting down to dinner, I get a SMS on my mobile (a rare thing in-and-of itself). This is the message:
Hi Chloe hope u don’t mind i asked Nancy for your no sorry to hear u and Max are not well we are praying for u let me know if we can do anything u are much loved rest in God and His love too 🙂
Now obviously I’m not Chloe, so this is (probably) a wrong number, but the amazing coincidence of opening the fundie letter only minutes before getting this fundie SMS freaked me out a little. The fundies are trying to do my head in!
Has this ever happened to anyone else?
Well, I’m off to have another glass of red, the OH has just opened a nice Shiraz Viognier from Bendigo. I think I need it. Cheers.
