Hey Christian! Could this letter be written to you?

Updated on July 21, 2009

 

Hey Christian...could this letter be written to you?

Dear Child of God,

I am forever grateful to you for the tremendous help you’ve been to me. Because you wear the helmet of salvation, I can’t snatch you back from your Father’s hands. However, you have been a great asset to my work. I’ll admit that I was quite concerned when you were first saved. Your enthusiasm created quite a stir among your unsaved relatives and friends. For awhile I really thought you had them convinced that God actually loved them and sent His only Son to die for them; a living sacrifice for their sins. Then when you started to pray for them, I figured it was a done deal. I searched for a way to trip you up, but it wasn’t necessary. You became weary and discouraged. You’ll never know how close you came to leading them to my enemy, the Lord Jesus Christ. I’m so glad that you finally gave up on them.

It’s great that you’re into so many things that you don’t have time to study your Bible or to communicate with the Lord in prayer. Your growth will remain stunted. That certainly works for me! I had to laugh at the way you tried to share your faith with your co-worker. You were so scared because you couldn’t remember the Bible reference you wanted to share. Boy did you ever fumble that one! Ha ha! You should of asked me. I know them all! Non believers are content practicing their own religion and good works. Let them think they are earning their way into Heaven when in reality they belong to me. Please don’t tell them to trust In Christ Alone!

I’m really glad that you’re tired at the end of the week. It’s especially rewarding to me when you don’t have the ambition or energy to serve at the local rescue mission. Those hungry, homeless and hurting people are lost. Let them be lost! I’m so thankful that you don’t sit there and listen to their troubles. You might end up sharing the Gospel message with someone and actually give them hope. I can’t have any of that happening! Their souls belong to me and I don’t want to lose any of them.

Hey, I almost forgot! Remember that funny looking dude who came to Church last week and sat way in the back? You know which one I mean; the guy with the Mohawk and the tattoos. Yeah, well he’s mine too. You almost went over to greet him but his weirdness stopped you. Well you can’t have him. Since he was uncomfortable and felt unwelcome with everyone staring at him, he won’t be back.

Hey you know those guys who don’t believe in any God at all? They don’t even realize that I know He exists! How funny is that? Let’s just keep that a secret between you and me, ok?

Well, Christian, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all that you’re doing to help my cause. Please don’t change a thing. Keep up the lack of good work. See you around!

The prince of darkness,

Satan

      I certainly know what you are talking about; to be so high and happy and have so many act like you are a nut; it is not easy to then turn around and pray for these people that will do anything to see you suffer. It takes a lot of Christ in our life to love these people.

      This is far better than the canned standard sermons you hear from so many pseudo preachers - thank you!

      Great , love it :0) reminds me of CS Lewis " The screw tape letters" Great read.

      What you have written so describes the state of the church in this country and the sooner people wake up and realize that they have been robbed the better..... Jesus came to set us free..satan came to start programs,movements,and as many christain distractions as possible...

      great hub...Mike :0)

      Once I gave my life to Christ, and also renewed my vows to Him over and over, I do not give any attention to what the devil would say or think. You have to be pretentious when it comes to the enemy. The Power of Jesus Name diffuses the enemy like a bucket of water to the Wicked Witch of the East. Sometimes, though, the voice of the enemy is really the voice of the flesh. We have nerve endings in our skin which know what makes us remember what "feels" good, so to assume that Satan is behind everything that is not of God that comes to our minds is foolish. Being born again is not the complete protection we need to protect ourselves from the Lord's evil opponent. Putting the Words that Jesus has said into our speech and providing the evidence in action and BELIEVING in His Word (read Galatians 5:11-24;this will get any Christian prepared to combat the actions of the Enemy).

      Most live in a world where they float by on their supposed anointing and don't even realize the deception played daily. They roll through life. They quit praising God, they stop fwllowship. They can't remember the last time the y really went through God's Word trying to get clarification on something.

      Yeah, there are even a few pastors I've known who should or could get a revised edition of this letter meant for church leadership. Since satan knows the Bible well, he could easily flip the script on Jeremiah 23 and those punks in the pulpit who spend more time splashing oil on their bank account than the hurting souls who really need deliverance will end up sliding down the razorblade of Christianity thinking they got it goin' on with Jesus.

      We are our own worst enemies, aren't we? Good hub. I like those song lyrics that remind us to look in the back of the book to find out the ending --- Jesus wins!

      I loved this hub. You have once again proved that you can write. It reminds me a little of CS Lewis work. Not the literacy but the idea.

      I really searched and searched my heart. COuld I receive a letter like that? Do I let something slip that I should pay mor attention too?

      I was a little discouraged on HUB pages and have been scammed of 300 dollars by an HUBBER that was going to publish my novel. But I learned an expencive american lesson I guess. Comming from another country makes you an eseay prey for some people. But I'm back on Hub pages until my website is done than i will let you know. Please keep encouraging us! Blessing.

      I would love to see the answer to this "letter".

      I got discouraged in my early years of salvation, but never gave up as the LORD was very encouraging in my struggle.

      Thank GOD for HIS love and Mercy.

      Hi Borne Again I read something similar a few days ago.

      WOW. This hub is a huge reminder to put Christ firstplace. WE are here to serve the Almighty God. I am eternally grateful that when I was reaching out and close to dead a loving hand reached to my hand with the love of Jesus. I recall her warmth and gentle words as she led me to Jesus. I moved from that area many months later and I will always remember Carol. I will see her one day. Thank You for sharing this powerful message. Check my new hub butterfly transformation

      This is awesome! It's reminiscent of the "Screwtape Letters" a little bit. I enjoyed it and the truth is right in there. Thanks! Good work.
