Addressed to two Catholic priests (private names removed to protect privacy), this mind-blowing letter (unedited), from Rabbi H. Chaim Gruber, could, via logic, end Agnosticism! (Letter sent on 10 Oct. ‘18)

10 X 2018

Dear Brothers _____ and _____:

I am unaware if you two know each other; so, I make this introduction: Brother _____ is the Friar of Krakow’s _____ Monastery; Brother _____ is the Superior of Prague’s _____, _____ Church. You both, as of today, are the only priests to whom I have spoken of the mind-blowing revelations that I experienced on Saturday night, September 29-30. Each of you recognized the astonishing nature of such epiphanies that are, to use an understatement, of tremendous eternal value to the Church and the world. Therefore, I humbly request that you utilize your full authorities to help me spread those good ideas that were made known to me, and which we individually discussed.


Because I, here, first write about the events and revelations of that night, I copy you both on the forthcoming recap. Also, for you, [Superior], to know, we were able, more than [the Friar] and I, to spend a greater amount of time together. Meaning, you are aware of further of the following details (which I arrange in three points), although a great share of the below was discussed with [the Friar].


(1) When walking in Prague on that Saturday night (one which I, now, consider historic), I chanced by three, young, sitting men who were speaking English. As I passed, I overheard one, with grotesque seriousness, speaking to the attentive, other two about a simultaneously violent and flamboyant manner to commit suicide or the similar! Stunned by the perverse conversation, I, abruptly, stopped beside them and interjected. I excused my forwardness by letting them know that I was obligated to interrupt due to my having overheard them. Then, I immediately let the group know that those awful words that had just entered my ears should neither be spoken nor heard! Self-destructive or destructive behavior, especially the gratuitous type, should not be glorified! Even to speak of such activities with mere flippancy makes such woefulness less of a shock, and thereby, more accessible.


The nihilistic man who had spoken, who wore stylized, torn jeans, told me that what I had heard was from a song of his. Even worse, I retorted, if he is negatively influencing more than just these other two! Turning toward that other pair, who were dressed straitlaced and of Indian descent (the singer was Western-Caucasian), I mentioned that even listening to such unnecessarily vicious words was damaging their minds, in both a conscious and subconscious manner. Then, one of the Indians remarked: I don’t mind that much.


“That much.” I repeated his last words to him and said that his qualifier revealed that he himself, in some measure at the least, knew that he was under psychological attack. Moreover, such a Freudian-slip apprehension would be normal because if he suppressed his natural revulsion to such rancid imagery, he would heedlessly promote, in himself, masochism, sadism, or both. Then, the nihilist frankly said that he was a worshipper of “Satan!” (I suspect that he did so due to his having devoted enough time, energy, and emotion to his lifestyle so that, with his ego on the rise, he did not want to appear foolish.)


Then, the one Indian who had spoken, while staring at me rebelliously, said that he, too, served “Satan!” While I was not very surprised by the singer’s sympathy for the devil, I can only speculate as to why the Indian man—who, with his compatriot, looked nerdlike—spoke so irreverently. Had he, in the earlier conversation amongst them three, simply invested enough interest so that he, too, did not desire, by the mere fact of his having given his attention, to appear dumb? Whatever the case, I responded, more or less, as follows:


Anyone who is either self-destructive or destructive cannot achieve genuine love. This is both because true love is wanting who is loved to remain forever and because destructiveness is risky. Hence, an unsafe person, who reduces the likelihood of remaining intact bodily, can neither truly love him- or herself nor someone else. Rather, those who unnecessarily jeopardize their lives must more love their devilishness than staying with those whom they supposedly love.


Further, someone who “loves” a person with dangerous tendencies would not, at a subconscious level at a minimum, invest his or her fullest emotions in that daredevil. The someone would not do so because, as risky individuals are less likely to be around for the long haul, heartbreak is more likely when loving someone who lives on the edge. So, to prevent the broken-heartedness that results from love being taken away, those who care about a destructive person insulate themselves against their bad emotional investments by their, subconsciously at the least, not gifting such a risk-taker with their hearts’ full capacities. Meaning, I concluded to the young men, their own satanic, destructive fascinations were only ruining their own lives because, therein, they were throwing away true love, the greatest and most rewarding of human emotions.


From their facial expressions, my words were comprehended; and, when I had finished, the Indian, who had earlier admitted to Satan worship, at once, sat up straight. Then, within the same, rigid posture, he feigned a chastised-boy tone and said: Thank you, Sir, for changing my life!


I replied that they were welcome; and, with my point made to the degree that, in future, its truth would be revealed wherever those men might go, I departed.


After I had crossed the street into an adjacent park, the LORD, Yehovah, spoke to me: He said that my earlier words, which had enough cleansed that Indian youth of a self-destructive tendency, were His, the LORD’s, words. Moreover, the LORD’s desire was that such a previously unrecognized method of ministry, due to its enormous power to reduce Satanism, should be disseminated worldwide.


“Brethren, be strengthened in the Lord and in the might of his power. Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places,” (Eph. 6:10-12).


I, myself, before that night’s chain of spontaneous events and realizations, had been unable—with such brevity and lucidity—to exorcise such (self-)destructive demonism; and, dear Superior _____ and Friar _____, you two clerics agreed that my pointed approach with those young men was revelatory. For that reason, you both, also, thought that such a theological eye-opener was, for the Church, monumental news considering how, today, such reckless, satanic tendencies in society have tragically become even ubiquitous.


“If I by the finger of God cast out devils; doubtless the kingdom of God is come upon you.” To explain that Luke-11 verse, Jesus, elsewhere, states that God’s kingdom is likened to a pearl so valuable that its finder sells all else to buy it (Matthew 13:45-6). Hence, as a satanic possession—worse than uncomfortable—is awful, when someone is truly purged of a demon, the resulting cathartic liberation is akin to that same, dramatic, nothing-compares-to-you difference, where such a relieved someone is glad to relinquish, with permanence, his or her old condition for the new.

(2) When I, that night, returned to my hostel, two young men, one from Portugal and one from Spain, had moved into the room in which I was staying. When we conversed, I discovered that, despite a Catholic upbringing, the Portuguese man was agnostic. That is, he felt that no religion had, so far, provided him with sufficient evidence as to its verity. Consequently, while open to listening and not atheistic, he was not convinced that any particular faith was true. (Seemingly, his Spanish friend felt similarly. However, I am unsure because the latter did not speak English well, even if he could reasonably understand what I was saying.)


Suddenly, in my mind, I received a revelation that guided me to a rather instant method of instilling faith into this doubting man’s mind and heart! Then, allowing such an inspiration to unfold, I began by reminding the Portuguese man of Jesus Christ’s one-and-only new command: To love one another as Jesus loved. {“A new commandment I [Jesus] give unto you: That you love one another, as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another,” (John 13:34-35).}


Next, I questioned if he knew how did and how does Jesus love? When he could not respond adequately, I asked him what the name “Jesus” means. Sadly, this early-twenties man, of Catholic background, was unsure. I replied (and after I did, he remembered) that “Jesus” means “Savior” (or, more literally, “He will save”). Therefore, as Jesus is the Savior, Jesus loves as a savior loves—by saving:


Someone who genuinely saves, that is, a person who is a savior, is someone who keeps or otherwise preserves whomever or whatever is being saved. Continuing, I, too, logically defined both “love” as desiring who or what is loved over all others and “hate” as wanting to destroy or get rid of whomever or whatever is hated. Also, salvation is the opposite of destruction. Therefore, by nature, I said, love is intertwined with salvation because love wants to save whomever or whatever is loved so that he, she, or it (the loved) remains. If a lover did not want what was loved to endure, that lover, duplicitous, would be false.


What all of this means, I remarked, is that Jesus’ one-and-only new command—which is, thereby, the foremost basis of Christianity in enough of a regard—must be the framework of humanity’s genuine religion! This is because love, innately, is our greatest emotion (“God,” our Creator, “is love” because we are created with love being what is naturally most sweet!); and the only way to love truly is by, as described, actually saving whomever or whatever is loved. (In fact, as love’s opposite, hate, is destructive, salvation is love’s tangible product.) Therefore, because Christianity both places the precept of love for others on a pedestal and explains that real love is based on salvation, Christianity must be humanity’s authentic religion because only by following such beliefs can a human acquire true love, the most satisfying state of all.


By that point, both men, who agreed to the soundness of my words, had laid back in their beds and were staring at me in the glassy-eyed manner of those who were entranced. I could understand. After all, before our conversation, the two had likely thought it impossible to convince someone, so quickly and irrevocably, that a true religion existed and that it was Christianity.


[Superior _____], you were, of course, in awe when I related to you the previous. [Friar _____], you, too, recognized a magnitude of my theological exposition to those Iberian men. After all, and thank God, a simple antidote, now, is available to remedy the plague of Western agnosticism and atheism that has been in ascendancy! [Consider the title of this feature article from a 2016 National Geographic, “The World’s Newest Major Religion: No Religion.” Moreover, and to quote a Google search (emphasis added), “According to the third American Family Survey from 2017, 34% of the US population identify as ‘nones’ (‘Atheists,’ ‘agnostics,’ [or] ‘nothing in particular’), up from 32% in 2016.”]


I, also, mention that these two, young men, agreed with my assessment that the Church, eons ago, had lost this explanation as to why Christianity is the true religion that obediently worships God the Creator (Who, not an author of confusion, most wants love for us since He created love to be best). They, too, concurred with my thought that the reason why the Church, in the distant past, was able to spread so far and wide was because, once upon a time, it had an accurate understanding of Jesus’ one command, which encapsulates precepts that even a simpleton could understand to be in every collective’s supreme best interests.


The Iberians, also, recognized how valuable was this revelation to them in particular and to all of those with Christian/Catholic backgrounds who had lost the faith. After all, when a person from a religious culture and upbringing loses traditional belief, he or she may suffer existentially due to thoughts that his or her ancestors had been living a lie to the degree that whatever they had socially accomplished had been built on fraud or foolishness. And, such a vacuum in one’s internal life can unfortunately lead, for instance, to moral relativism or nihilism (so prevalent today, at a time when so many have lost faith).


Of interest, I recently brought a matter to Central European University’s president, Michael Ignatieff (who was, formerly, a prominent Canadian politician). Then, two-days ago, when investigating on Wikipedia, I discovered the following written about him: “Although he says he is not a ‘church guy,’ Ignatieff was raised Russian Orthodox and occasionally attends services with family. He describes himself as neither an atheist nor a ‘believer.’” Because, also two-days ago and before my Wiki investigations, I wrote the greater part of this letter’s Point #2, I more recognized how powerful was this Point’s revelation that can readily breathe new life into the deadened or weakened faith of former or lackluster Christians—a great number of whom have enormous influence in our world.

(3) Superior _____: Here, I only gloss over the last part of our discussion (which, I do not recall, I much spoke of with you, Friar _____): That aspect of our talk involved the connections between (a) the accurate theology that humanity’s egotism was responsible for the crucifixion (Jesus, innocent, was killed for telling others, who could not bear hearing his words, the right thing to do)*; and (b) permanent tattoos having the effect of strengthening the ego.


That final topic of ours was, as you agreed Superior _____, more than unnerving because it involved issues that, if not handled properly, could calamitously lead to the psychological undoing of great numbers of people. Therefore, here, I do not go into greater detail about that more confidential matter because I am under divine obligation to publicize this letter openly in order to spread the urgently needed, lifesaving theology earlier related.


Thank you; and, I look forward to immediately working together for world salvation purposes!
