A Word from God
Hey, it’s me, God. See them there crates in the back of my pickup? Full of guns and computers they are. See that there settlement on the distant horizon? That twelve-foot rock wall surrounds a secret compound. It’s where I’m delivering these here supplies.
Why is God delivering guns and computers to some holy cloister in the middle of the New Mexico desert you ask?
Because there amongst the mud brick buildings resides one of our heroes, Atticus. He’s been training for all of his seventeen years to be a mighty champion to oppose the evil hordes that constantly threaten this particular Earth.
Why am I telling you this story? Why should you care? Well, I’m glad you asked.
You see I have a message so listen closely. Ready?
Three things will stand the test of time—faith, hope and love—and the greatest of these is...that’s right! Love.
You’re rolling your eyes.
That’s just fine ‘cause I’m used to it. Lots of folks get leery when God starts talking to them directly. The ones who don’t get fidgety are the ones who talk to me on a regular basis.
But hey, I’m not one to judge.
Or maybe I am.
But whether you believe in me or not is irrelevant to this particular story. This story is not about me, but if you care to read more about me then you know where to look, right?
That’s precisely what I thought.
But you didn’t pick up this book—or download it to your fancy e-Reader to get preached to by someone driving a pickup, so let us get on with the good stuff.
You’re about to meet a lot of interesting folks. Some from Texas and some from alternate places along the space-time continuum and from far off exotic worlds that I don’t travel to very often. You could say those places are God-forsaken.
Some of you more discerning readers may be asking that age old question: If I really am God then why ain’t I doing anything more than hauling weapons and computers to these holy warriors?
Well, I’m sure you’ve heard the debate about free-will and all that.
All I can do other than supply them with some useful tools is offer words of encouragement to my good boy Atticus and his future allies.
Speaking of allies, let’s talk Shane Baker. You see he’s another important soldier in the coming war. He just hasn’t figured it out yet.
Come now, watch and see how they fair.
