I love God! So don't bash Him around me! In fact, please refraine from bashing Him at all! He loves you!
This is Ami, coming to you live from the Pubs Lab of her high school. Our editor just brought cookies, most of the staff is out hanging the newsletters around school, and I'm hoping our supervisor doesn't catch me on Fanfiction!
You may be wondering what I am, religiously. Well, I'm not religious.
I'm a messenger, and here's what being a messenger is all about.
A long time ago (before your parents graduated) there was a man named Isaiah.
One day, Isaiah had a vision - like a dream, but he was awake. In this vision, he saw GOD Himself! (cue shocked silence) Surrounding God were a bunch of angels. These angels had SIX wings! And you thought two was radical! On each angel, two of their wings covered their face, two covered their feet, and the last two were used for what wings are normally thought to be used for - flying.
Anyway, these super amazing angels were singing some beautiful songs of praise to God. And when I say beautiful, I mean beautiful.
Anyway, Isaiah, like you or me might do, started freaking out. Basically, in a nutshell, what he said was, "Oh no! I'm not fit to see God face to face! I mean, I'm a human! Humans are always putting each other down, dissing each other, being rude, calling each other names, lying, and stuff like that! Our lips are morally filthy! Even the best of us has said something mean! And now I'm in front of GOD! I'm in for it now!"
Anyway, one of the angels grabs a hot coal from off the altar to God, and flies over to our guy Isaiah. After touching Isaiah's lips with this hot coal, the angel says, "Look! I just touched your lips with a hot coal from the alter. Now your guilt and disobedience to God is gone!"
God starts talking. "Who will I send to be my messenger?"
Cue Isaiah screaming excitedly, "HERE AM I, LORD! SEND ME!"
Fast forward to a looooong time afterwards. A guy, dying one of THE most painful deaths in history. This horrible, awful death was set aside just for the big baddies. This guy must have done something really bad.
The problem? This guy? He hasn't done anything wrong. I mean, nothing. He never dissed or disobeyed his parents, loved his brothers and sisters, was uuber nice to everyone around him. He told people off when they did something bad, and he was always helping, cleaning, doctoring.
So why was a nice guy like him dying a death like this?
He chose it. See, he had friends he wanted to save. The only way was to die for them. These friends had done quite a bit of bad stuff, and the penalty was death.
The problem was that these "friends" of his didn't even know what he was doing. As he died (a long death), they were laughing and pointing at him. Why would he die for such . . . jerks?
He loved em. Every last one.
Wanna know the name of this uuber nice guy, who was dying for his mean friends?
Otherwise known as Jesus.
Wanna know the names of the people he was dying for?
Fill in your name here.
You don't have to be a jerk. There are a few of Jesus' friends who realized what he was doing for them, and now they love him like crazy. You can always join them.
You might say, who cares? This Jesus guy died. Hello. End of story.
Yeah, he died.
Didn't last very long, though.
The next time someone says "Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me " HIT THEM WITH A DICTIONARY!
