A couple of days ago, I was in a waiting room that had a TV (I don’t watch it at home, so perhaps this is kind of like hell on earth for me). There was some talkshow on that had a guest who was describing her near death experience. I’ve heard similar stories throughout my lifetime, and it seems to be growingly popular to publish books and make money on such stories, just as the lady on this talkshow. These stories are all quite the same, but bare no resemblance to the stories of saints who come back to life after dying.
What do you do when a store clerk refuses to say, or simply doesn’t say, “Merry Christmas,” while you’re doing your pre-Christmas shopping? I suggest doing what any normal Christian would do. I’ve been told I’m not normal, so what follows may eventually lead to some abnormal ideas about what to do. Not saying or suggesting you should act on any such ideas that may come to you after reading this, but at least what follows may lead to some interesting ideas.
