Yesterday's letter from Rollen
Yesterday I received a quickly-compiled letter from him. I knew that he had rushed because, in the past, he has used plenty of colored markers to write Bible citations and messages on the envelope. This one was all in pen and simply declared:
Rapture! Feast of Trumpets! Rosh Hashanah! 2005!
In the letter, he gave instructions to his supporters on how to make banners, where to place them, and how to ensure that they get on TV.
He needs financial assistance to get people to make up the signs, to go to the events and to continue his monthly media mailings. You can help Rollen in different methods.
1. go to http://www.paypal.com and donate to the account set up for Rollen -email@example.com .
2. Send a cheque or money order made out to "Rainbow Man" and send to Rainbow Man, Box 131, 3353 Credit Woodlands, Mississauga, ON Canada L5C2K1
If you wish to leave messages for me and/or for Rollen, please use the same email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rollen's letter ends with: "I must obey Jesus rather that earthly authority!" Acts 5:29
But it's hard to see past that, sometimes, isn't it? It's much easier to think he's doing God's work and open your pocketbook than to consider the organizations that stand up against greedy multi-nationals who would rape our land and poison our water for the sake of profit, or that distribute lunches to children who otherwise would not eat, or that provide protection to women who have finally taken a stand against their husband's abuse, or that give shelter to the homeless by providing them with a warm place to sleep. And this is just a fraction of the organizations out there, all manned by hard working volunteers who donate their time and energies to reduce the violent, decaying stench of this cesspool of a world in which we live; a stench that is, in some ways, made more pungent through the wanton acts of this "Rainbow Man" as he cuts across man's and God's laws in his fanatical crusade.
If Rollen Stewart has the word of God in him, he can minister for free. By all means, give this man your prayers and well-wishes, but let God handle his finanical affairs; He will provide, if it's His divine will. I ask only that you exercise some of the free will and higher thought He's given us through His grace: please donate your money where it can do the most good for the most people.
