Christmas is coming! Many decades ago, Mark Twain wrote the following Christmas Holiday message in a New York City daily newspaper1 …
It is my heart-warm and world-embracing Christmas hope and aspiration that all of us — the high, the low, the rich, the poor, the admired, the despised, the loved, the hated, the civilized, the savage — may eventually be gathered together in a heaven of everlasting rest and peace and bliss — except the inventor of the telephone.
If Twain were alive today, he might well want to deny “everlasting rest and peace and bliss” to the inventors of the Fax machine, the Beeper, and the Internet. The incredible Good News of the Christmas Event is that there are no exceptions to God’s Love for His human creatures — not even the inventor of the Internet. In and through the Lord Jesus Christ, God became one of us to tell us that He loves each and every one of us, without exception.
