Hello my child,
Welcome to this world
Before you grow up, there are few things I need to tell you
You were born corrupt, you were born a sinner, and the wages of sin is death
(Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me. Psalm 51:5)
(Therefore, just as a sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned. Romans 5:12)
Someday when you are old enough to understand, you must ask forgiveness, not for anything you’ve done, but for what others did thousands of years ago at the beginning of the world. Also you must tell God how sorry you are for murdering his son Jesus. I know, it happened generations before you drew your first breath, and is was ultimately part of God’s divine plan but the responsibility is yours. You are guilty and you must ask to be forgiven.
A portion of everything you produce in your lifetime must be given to God, who will never accept your offerings personally, you will listen for him but his voice will never be heard audibly, you will thank him for his direction and guidance but his mysterious ways will confuse you. In fact, although you are more important to God than anything else in the universe, he will never show you his face, or reveal himself in any provable way.
I know this seems strange. To truly know God, you must study a book. An ancient book written thousands of years ago in a language you do not understand. You must fulfil a great commission to make others see the world as you do, to have them believe as you do, to live as you do, and then to go out and convince even more to do the same.
Go into the world and preach the good news to all creation. Mark 16:15
As a reward for this, you will be given the privilege of praising God without end for all eternity, in a hidden happy place that can only bee seen by the dead.
You must pledge your entire life on this earth to your invisible father and his great commission, or he will send you to a dark pit, where the flesh is roasted from your bones and you rive an imaginable agony for ever and ever and ever.
But you must not do this because you fear horrible torture and pain, you must do it because you love God. No matter what happens throughout your lifetime, the more your world seems to defy everything I’ve taught you here, just continue to say the words out loud: God is real, God is good. And one day you will look into the eyes of your own child and you will teach him these very same things, so that he can someday teach his own children, and their children, and their children, for generations.
You will hold him in your arms and you’ll look down at him and say:
Welcome to this world
