Did Consumers Report Find Religion?

I see I'm getting postal mail from Consumer Reports magazine today. On the outside of the envelope it says, "Redemption Instructions Enclosed." Maybe they're providing an easy way to get into Heaven, "And if you act right now, we'll include videos of people you hate who are in Hell."

The word has a second meaning of redeeming something in the nature of goods or monetary worth. So, RD is good with the use of the word in its context.

Since you bring up the subject, Jerry, Redemption is not merely about eternal life. It is about living a Redeemed life in this world, which is a better and more enjoyable life all around, and according to Eph. 2:10, means that the Creator of the Universe will use that person to do His good works. Forget the Superheros. The God of the Universe will work through those who are saved. SHEZAM!! And it's a promise.

Good use of the word SHEZAM in this magical thinking context. Seems that the response from believers here exposes a bit of thin skin, can’t take a joke.

In this cash, they were letting me "redeem" $12 credit toward a $39 annual subscription, which I declined.

Thanks but I'll pass, I have no desire to spend eternity rubbing elbows with politicians.
