You Lost... But Convert Dammit ;-)
From Chicago Dyke @ Correntewire. Original article here

Congratulations on winning the District 50 senate race. Your phone is “busy”…no doubt with good wishes!

I’ve enjoyed much of this race, especially the people I’ve met…even you! I see your deficits—not all of them, and your potential—but not all of it. Only your Creator knows the real potential He’s put in you. Get to know Him and know yourself…you’ll be more interesting even to you!

The race of your life is more important than this one—and it is my sincere wish that you’ll get to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. He died for the sins of the world, yours and mine—and especially for those who accept His forgiveness. His kingdom will come and His will be done—on earth as it is in heaven. There’s more….I love belonging to the family of God. Jesus is the way, the truth and offers His life to you and each human being. Pay attention…this is very important, Satveer. Have you noticed Jesus for yourself…at some moment in time, yet???

God commends His love to us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

Death came upon all and was defeated by the superiority of Jesus’ life and His tomb is empty. God in Christ is reconciling the world back to Himself, with offered forgiveness—this is one choice we get to make nose to nose with the living God—fear Him and you need fear no other. Become His family and know the love of God that passes knowledge. See Isaiah and the Gospel of John…good reading while waiting for fishes to bite.

God sent not His son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
John 3:17

Jesus Christ lives in His earth family by His Spirit. He said He’d be back, and He said it first. You could invite Him to make the race of your life ‘eternal’. God waits to be gracious to each person that knows they need to be forgiven. Do you? I think you do. Just ask. Christ won eternal life for you and said so. Take Him at His Word. Take some time to get acquainted with this power-filled Jesus…God with us. You could be a temple of the living God, by invitation—-yours, TO GOD. :) There’s nothing like belonging to Christ…not winning, not money, not degrees…it’s the best.

Good wishes and better wishes…until you wish for the best!

Wouldn't a simple good luck have been enough?

Well, It is better than the vending machines and coffee joint I have seen in some gyms. But that one was worth the giggle.

Maggie said...

I'm stuck on the email. Written to a practicing Hindu. It was so very, un-Christian in tone. In fact, I would venture to say, though he may have been well meaning (I do wonder), he sounds like a condescending jerk! That's just how he sounds.

Foodie's Hope said...

Yeah! What's with the escalator?:D

Came here from John's and I thank my Hindu GOD for you for bringing back my smile.

Those e mails suck! I live in Bible belt, common speech for me:)
Take it with a pinch of salt.

Mona Buonanotte said...

Doesn't seem very 'christian' to me.

And hey, I have to walk up stairs to get to my gym! Not fair! ;-)

Aditi said...

the picture was funny.. instead of suing mcdonalds maybe that is what everyone should focus on
Did you see those ads aired by about voting for a bag of leaves?

Id it is said...

Not in the Bible belt are you?

MoDigli said...

Rae Hart Anderson - what a total nutcase! He should be embarrassed at that drivel. Thank goodness he lost the race!

That picture is so funny. It's got to be California. I've never seen outdoor escalators anywhere other than here. Even more funny is that the only people in the pic are on the escalator! LOL!

Keshi said...

LOL @pic!

I always tell my mum that I dun count taking the lift and escalator at the mall as exercise...she always says she had her usual exercise while shopping LOL!


Sai said...

Love the picture! Well I guess one has to take the escalator to go to the gym and work out on the step mill and

DysfunctionaL said...

Sanjay said...

@Cacophoenix.. what no fruit or veggie shakes?

@Maggie..How aptly put.

@Foodie..Yep I know but it still rankles that ppl won't leave others alone.

@Aditi..No. I will check them out.

@Id ..No I am not in the bible belt. (phew)

@Mo.. I think you are right.

@Keshi..Thats funny.


deepsat said...

LOL!! i guess laziness at its best!!

Teri said...

Ohhh, that letter is just infuriating... if I can ever get it together long enough to stop bitching about C. (ahem), I'm gonna blog about it...

CarpeDM said...

ARGH! As a born again Christian, this type of near-sightedness, bigotry, and just sheer bitchiness really irritates me. People like her give me a bad name. And when did everyone start forgetting that Christian stands for Christ-like, not toss insulting comments and the like to people that don't believe what you do? There are days when I think about converting to Buddhism.

Climbing off soap box now. Thanks for pointing this out.
