Television evangelist can't guarantee cure
By ABIGAIL VAN BUREN
DEAR ABBY: I have a problem that is eating my insides out. I started writing to a TV evangelist because I have multiple sclerosis. I know he is well-respected, in touch with God and does many good things. The problem is that he always wants more money. I sent him $100. Then he wrote to me personally and told me that something great was going to happen to me, but I had to send him another $100 first — even if I had to save my pennies and get the money any way I could!
I believe in God with all my heart and strive to be a good person, but, Abby, I can’t take food from my children’s mouths because this man says God will do something good for me if I do. That comes very close to saying that God can be bought.
My husband is very angry with me because I sent as much as I did. I would like to be free of my disease, but I will not
deny my family the necessities in order to send this man money.
Please tell me something positive about these TV evangelists. I’m beginning to believe that all they want is my money — money that I don’t have.
God understands. Why can’t they?
GOT TO KNOW
DEAR GOT TO KNOW: It’s unfair to tar all evangelists with the same brush. Many inspire their followers to be better people — to be kinder to their fellow men and have faith in the Lord.
God cannot be bought, nor does he reserve his blessings for those who send money to a TV evangelist.
DEAR ABBY: I am being married in the near future. My father is living, but my mother is deceased. However, my mother is with me in spirit all the time.
Is there any way I can tactfully acknowledge my mother on my wedding invitations?
DEAR REMEMBERING: You might identify yourself as the daughter of “Mr. (
) and the late Mrs. ( ).”
It is not usually done, but if it will give you pleasure, I see no reason why you shouldn't do it.
DEAR ABBY: About the business of writing a thank-you on the reverse of a cancelled check. What is this world coming to? Anyone who can’t find the time to write a decent thank-you note for a check doesn’t deserve the gift. If it’s just an added gesture while endorsing the check, I take it back, but to dash off a “thanks” on the back of the check and consider that adequate thanks is the pits.
In my case, I don’t even receive cancelled checks. All I get is a statement from the credit union, and I imagine that the day is coming when all checks will be handled in that fashion.
Thanks for letting me have my say.
