Meet Oscar, the cat who can sense when someone is about to die.. (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1248539/Meet-Oscar-cat-knows-.html)
This was some time ago; it was a dreary morning for me (which later turned out to be terrible). I had woken up around eight and was eager to get some breakfast. I had lost my job four months ago and was searching for a new one. After breakfast all I wanted to do was to get ready and go out for interviews.
It was the by the door that I first saw that letter. Someone had pushed that piece of paper from underneath the door. The writing was very crude, written in Urdu script by someone who was probably not much literate either.
As I begin to slowly make out the words (it was written badly), I understood how important that letter really was. The message though spread over a space of 3 pages, was simple enough “stop preaching or we will kill you and your family”. Plus, in that same letter, the author had given us a chance of redemption too, there was a magnanimous invitation to join the religion of Islam too, which if we accepted, would make us (us and whoever wrote the letter) brothers and sisters and therefore we would not be further threatened. If we refused, we will be made examples of.
I read that later four or five times. When you hold something like this in your hand, you contemplate a lot of things. Had I been living in the west, I might have not taken it as seriously as it sounded or may be even thought of it as a prank. But since I live in Pakistan, as a Christian I understand the letter is real enough and so is its message.
The beauty of the cross is that it is ugly. Seriously, the cross is ugly. It is the symbol of an ugly death that happened for the sake of ugly sins, and it is for ugly people to come and fall down on their knees in repentance.
Wow! Just amazing, it is a must read guys.
