A letter written by Albert Einstein is expected to sell this month on EBay for $3 million dollars. This valuable manuscript is referred to as Einstein’s God Letter.
Although this letter is gaining popularity, Einstein’s most famous legacy is the special Theory of Relativity, which makes the point that a large amount of energy could be released from a tiny amount of matter. The Theory of Relativity is expressed in the equation…E=MC2 (Energy =mass times the speed of light squared). That simple theory changed the face of physics and paved the way for nuclear power and the atomic bomb.
While I guess no letter I ever write will be auctioned off for $3Million, and I only understand the most basic concepts of the Theory of Relativity, I do have these words from God’s Son that express all I need to know. Jesus said, “16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”(John 3:16)
Original hand-penned scrolls of God’s Word, can also be expensive and rare to purchase; however, God’s love letter to us does not cost a penny. Although the price was great for Christ, salvation cost us nothing. Now, that is RELATIVITY that each of us can grasp and accept.
Have a Blessed Day!
