A Christmas Carol for our times

Published on

The author’s objective was to convey the narrative of an avaricious elderly individual whose profound disdain for the Christmas season had resulted in a profound deterioration of his physical and mental condition.

The author elected to educate his disagreeable protagonist by having him encounter the ghosts of past, present, and future.

The author’s prose was characterised by a pervasive sense of regret, as evidenced by lines such as “No rest, no peace.” The author describes the relentless torment of remorse.

A ghost informs the protagonist, “I wear the chain I forged in life.” The chain was constructed by the protagonist, who also chose to wear it.

A revised version of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, set in the present day, might depict Ebenezer Scrooge as a participant in the culture of death. This could be evidenced by his financial gain from the misery of abortion, and even by his coercion of his wife to undergo the procedure.

This line from the classic work may be interpreted in a new light: “No space of regret can make amends for one life’s opportunity missed.”

A similar argument can be made with regard to this proposition. It is beneficial to embrace a childlike mentality at times, and perhaps more so during the Christmas season, when the figure of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was himself a child.

Haunted by his past, burdened by his present, and fearful of his future, Ebenezer Scrooge might repent of his past involvement in abortion and dedicate himself to rebuilding a culture of life.

Having been cured of his desperation, he would come to recognize that there is nothing in the world that is so contagious as laughter and good humor.

He would come to recognise the intrinsic value of the life of a child and his mother, and the necessity of protecting and revering them.

It is my sincere hope that God will bestow His blessings upon the unborn, including the infant Timothy, during this Christmas season.
