“What are the odds? / He must be God!”



We hear on every side:  “I can make you happy if you give me some money!”

“Eat this food!”  “Try this diet!”  “Drink this drink!”   “Take this medicine!”  “Do this exercise!” cry those focused on the body.

“Go to this school!”   “Read this book!”  “See this movie!”   “Watch this show!” insist those making money from mental concerns.

“Live in this neighborhood!”  “Get this car!” “Wear these clothes!”  “Buy this jewelry!”  “Travel here!”  “Collect these!” say those who sell us status.

Many wonder:  “Is this all there is?  Marketing Plans encouraging us to simply have and do things?   None of this makes us happy for more than a little while.”

On a slightly higher level, a different call:  “Feel good by doing good!”   “Protect the environment!”   “Support the Arts!”

Beyond those Marketing Plans, we hear:  “Save your soul!  Get to Heaven!  Be happy, forever!”

Some think about Jesus.

Prophecies predicted that “He would be born of The Tribe of Judah.”  More specifically, He would be from “The House of David”, in the tiny “Village of Bethlehem”.  As prophesied, Jesus was “lifted up before men”.   “They looked upon He Whom they pierced.”  “No bone of His would be broken.”

“What are the odds?/ He must be God!” many conclude, seeing the simple statistics that validate the belief.

Jesus was clear about The Only Church He Founded:  “Verily, verily I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  I give you the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven.”

Many saw money being given to His Church.  “I want some of that money!   I’m starting My Own Church to get it!”  Their most successful Marketing Plans have taken form in 45,000 Marketing Plan Denominations.

They worship Jesus, but ignore the clear call to Catholic Communion He repeated an astonishing EIGHTEEN TIMES:  “If you do not eat My Body and drink My Blood you do not have life in you.”

There is no money in that for them.
