To a College Student,
No lectures or essays or
pontifications here. No matter what, if they don't get right to it
How about just starting with the
second most important thing of all. What it is precisely that is in your

Let me just do my thing How can I best compose this text message
If the fact that I've
transcribed about 90% of the contents of your brain is offensive, hey,
take heart that I'm not so obtuse as to know all of it or get every
But let's be honest. It isn't
that hard. One, everyone has these kinds of these thoughts, they're part of
human nature. And two, much of their most
benighted forms are injected there by ingenious operatives who need
you to viscerally embrace all of this to keep you in check, in control,
under their thumb.
That you think you're your own
kind of person, that you can handle it, you're in charge anyway, that
you're in with the right kind of people—all that doesn't change this.
Sorry, if you really like reality, want to be real and all that, you'd
start getting this. If not, that's fine, just read no further. No big
Unless... unless you are curious and want
to know what that first most important thing is, and that's frankly far
more offensive than someone knowing what you could possibly be thinking.
That is simply that Jesus
Christ, who is, yeah, the most important thing, is either not
there at all or if He is, the mental conception is so warped and
distorted that it is worse than Him not being there. He's either shoved
off the table, or the straw-man Jesus established in your cranium by
those operatives is worshipped as if it's something.
The main reason this happens is
because those operatives have convinced you that you don't need Him.
It's true, you don't, if you're morally perfect. If you are, great, read
no further. You're right, He is nothing. Good thing so far I've only
wasted about four minutes of your life.
But if you struggle with lots of
difficult stuff slamming against your insides, then you may want to read
The Jesus Christ of real reality
is the One. He not only blows away all the idol Jesuses that
infect so many psyches, but He resolves all the trauma that comes
with most of those items banging around in the heads of everyone (not
just college students). He not only brings bright clarity in the midst
of all the swirling turmoil that may envelope you, but He loves you, and does so with
I personally think it'd be a lot
nicer if there were more of His ambassadors out there touching people
with that love, and there are, they're out there, I know.
Whatever the case, here's
a letter to you, about Him.
I only write to you, the college
student, just because I know how on-fire for the things of truth and
life and joy and goodness college students are.
Find out how awesome is it to
with the vibrant meaning of those things, and then love others with a
transcendent love that will blow your mind wide open.
That puny Jesus that's been
festering in your soul, he can't do diddly.
Take a chance on The One whose
very name is God With Us.

More for a College Student
(For the particularly abrasive cynic, you'll note
that this site has no request for or link to make any donation. There is no
address or post office box to mail anything. There exists no organization in any
building anywhere, though a gathering of individuals in a building is not a bad
thing. Ample funding of a fine work is not a bad thing either, though Jesus was
far more interested in people worshipping God in Spirit and in Truth, and out of
that wholly caring for one another in a community in which all enjoy His
bountiful provision. The true church should have no name except that which comes
from the vibrant expression of His love through them in a World desperate for
what is real. I will add that I do provide an
email address for you to ask questions
or add a comment if
you'd like. I'd certainly like to know what you think.)
