Dear Ricky,


Tony: No. I do feel like she’s still here. And it’s like I’m in two minds. One knows the truth. She died. Logical. There’s no heaven. No reincarnation, no ghosts. I know that. But then I feel her inside me. All the time. Like she’s still part of me, guiding me. ( sighs ) It’s weird. 

Anne: That’s because you’re human, and nothing really makes sense. 

Tony: Look at you, Kierkegaard.

Anne: It’s okay to have feelings, you know. Things that aren’t logical. Science makes us understand how to stay alive longer. Feelings give us the reason to want to.

WE HAVE FEELINGS BECAUSE WE ARE NOT THE PRODUCT OF CHANCE BUT MADE BY THE GOD OF THE BIBLE WHO WANTS TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH US!

Francis Schaeffer comments on the Book of Ecclesiastes. If a person lives life UNDER THE SUN (phrase used 29 times in Book of Ecclesiastes) as if there is no God then chance rules. 

Ecclesiastes 9:11

11 Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all.

Chance rules. If a man starts out only from himself and works outward it must eventually if he is consistent seem so that only chance rules. 

Charles Darwin came to the same conclusion concerning CHANCE ruling and you will find out later in this letter why I am bringing his name up. 

In 1968 Francis Schaeffer commented on the 1892 Autobiography of Charles Darwin. 

Francis Schaeffer rightly noted:

In his letters Darwin showed that all through his life he never really came to a quietness concerning the possibility that chance really explained the situation of the biological world. You will find there is much material on this [from Darwin] extended over many many years that constantly he was wrestling with this problem. Darwin never came to a place of satisfaction. You have philosophically only two possible beginnings. The first would be a personal beginning and the other would be an impersonal beginning plus time plus chance. There is no other possible alternative except the alternative that everything comes out of nothing and that has to be a total nothing and that has to be a total nothing without mass, energy or motion existing. No one holds this last view because it is unthinkable. Darwin understood this and therefore until his death he was uncomfortable with the idea of chance producing the biological variation. Francis Schaeffer comments on the book  Darwin, Francis ed. 1892. Charles Darwin: his life told in an autobiographical chapter, and in a selected series of his published letters [abridged edition]. London: John Murray.

CHARLES DARWIN’S AUTOBIOGRAPHY. Addendum. Written May 1st, 1881 [the year before his death].

I have said that in one respect my mind has changed during the last twenty or thirty years. Up to the age of thirty, or beyond it, poetry of many kinds, such as the works of Milton, Gray, Byron, Wordsworth, Coleridge, and Shelley, gave me great pleasure, and even as a schoolboy I took intense delight in Shakespeare, especially in the historical plays. I have also said that formerly pictures gave me considerable, and music very great delight. But now for many years I cannot endure to read a line of poetry: I have tried lately to read Shakespeare, and found it so intolerably dull that it nauseated me. I have also almost lost my taste for pictures or music. Music generally sets me thinking too energetically on what I have been at work on, instead of giving me pleasure. I retain some taste for fine scenery, but it does not cause me the exquisite delight which it formerly did…

This curious and lamentable loss of the higher aesthetic tastes is all the odder, as books on history, biographies, and travels (independently of any scientific facts which they may contain), and essays on all sorts of subjects interest me as much as ever they did. My mind seems to have become a kind of machine for grinding general laws out of large collections of facts, but why this should have caused the atrophy of that part of the brain alone, on which the higher tastes depend, I cannot conceive… The loss of these tastes is a loss of happiness, and may possibly be injurious to the intellect, and more probably to the moral character, by enfeebling the emotional part of our nature.

Francis Schaeffer commented:

This is the old man Darwin writing at the end of his life. What he is saying here is the further he has gone on with his studies the more he has seen himself reduced to a machine as far as aesthetic things are concerned. I think this is crucial because as we go through this we find that his struggles and my sincere conviction is that he never came to the logical conclusion of his own position, but he nevertheless in the death of the higher qualities as he calls them, art, music, poetry, and so on, what he had happen to him was his own theory was producing this in his own self just as his theories a hundred years later have produced this in our culture…What has happened to Darwin personally is merely a forerunner to what occurred to the whole culture as it has fallen in this world of pure material, pure chance and later determinism. Here he is in a situation where his mannishness has suffered in the midst of his own position.

Here is another application and it the fact that Charles Darwin, your hero, lost his happiness as he describes it when he became as a machine and the  Shakespeare earlier used to give him great delight no longer does later in his life and was so intolerably dull that it nauseated him. Darwin himself concluded that “the loss of these tastes is a loss of happiness, and may possibly be injurious to the intellect, and more probably to the moral character, by enfeebling the emotional part of our nature.

ANOTHER SCIENTIST Blaise Pascal asserted, “There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every man which cannot be filled by any created thing, but only by God the Creator, made known through Jesus Christ.”  In other words, the spiritual answers your heart is seeking can be  found in putting your faith and trust in Jesus Christ. The Bible is true from cover to cover and can be trusted.

TONY JOHNSON ADMITS WE ARE ALL SCREWED UP!!!

Below is a scene with Holli Dempsey playing a Botox lady who had several plastic surgeries that went wrong and she was not even 30 years old yet. Lenny and Tony are there to interview the Botox Lady. 

Botox Lady: I think I got a problem. 
Tony: Yeah. I mean it might be like an addiction.

Botox Lady: You mean it might I can’t help it?

Well I guess so, but if you acknowledge it there is a chance you can get help. 
Botox Lady: Do you think I am mental? 
Tony: No more than the rest of us. As I say WE ARE ALL SCREWED UP in one way or another. It makes you normal. 
Botox Lady: (She makes a sound that could be a muffled laugh or crying.)

Tony: You laughing? 
Botox Lady: Crying but [my face can’t cry with tears anymore].

HOW DO WE CONNECT WITH GOD?

Let me close by talking to you about the ROMAN ROAD TO CHRIST.

  1. Rom. 3:10, “As it is written, ‘There is none righteous, not even one . . . “
  2. Rom. 3:23, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”
  3. Rom. 5:12, “Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.”
  4. Rom. 6:23, “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
  5. Rom. 5:8, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
  6. Rom. 10:9-10, “if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved; for with the heart man believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.”
  7. Rom. 10:13, “For whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved

Thanks for your time. I love AFTER LIFE !!!!
