The Good, and The Evil
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world
that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall
not perish but have eternal life.”
On this day in 1968 (March 16th, 3/16), U.S. soldiers in Vietnam killed up to 500 unarmed villagers in the hamlet of Mai Lai, considered a stronghold of the Viet Cong.
Senescent space-ghost vampire:
Eternal life, I have to say, could be heavenly, hellish, or just like average everyday life. What if you were immortal, but aging? You'd eventually lose all your senses. Or a ghost? Where's the fun in that? Or you live billions of years (just getting started!), and end up floating in space, after the earth is swallowed up by the sun? How boring. I saw a bumper sticker "ELF" (everyone lives forever). If I outlive my death (!), I hope my immortality remains vital, interesting, varied, enjoyable. Vampires are immortal. Do Christians become vampires? They drink the blood of Christ. What a joke, if you ask me. The two 316's (John 3:16, and 3/16/1968) can be united by the phrase from Dracula, "the blood is the life." Eternal bloodshed sounds true, and biblical, enough.
