A note from your friendly neighbourhood Christian

In the leadup to Easter, I found something a little different hidden in the piles of junk mail one normally receives.

Flyer from the local Jehovah's Witnesses

“Jesus takes away the sin of the world”

It’s a flyer from the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 265 Brunswick Road, Brunswick inviting us to come along to a night of bible studies.

I’m not sure what it is about my local area, but this isn’t the first religious flyer I have had slipped into my mailbox. This home printed flyer from an anonymous Christian is one of the more interesting.

My bible knowledge isn’t very good, but thanks to Google I can tell the passage is a paraphrased version of the Gospel of Matthew, 6:19-21.

Don’t store your treasures on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Where your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.

At least it is something different to the “Thank you, St. Jude” messages one occasionally finds buried in the newspaper classifieds.
