We received this letter from a reader of The Issues of Life:
I wanted to write to thank you for considering me on your email list. I appreciate your willingness to share what God has shown you as far as “coming out”. We too have heard this message and have come out of Christianity. It has been wonderful here on the outside.
I am asking, though, that you remove me from your email list. I hope that God will continue to show you His humility and tenderness, as you learn more about God and His Son Jesus and what he died for. One of the things that I have learned in my journey with the Lord, is the more I learn about him, the more humble I am for being so blessed as to have heard of such a thing from Jesus. A lot of God’s children are hurting because of this confusion, and the only way to help them, is to love them out of it. If and when you truly come out of the abomination of Christianity, you will feel freer than you ever have in Jesus. Until then, I will keep you in my prayers.
A sister in Christ
Greetings in the Lord Jesus Christ,
Amy, God has done far more for us than shown us something about “coming out.” He has made us new creatures in His image, which is only possible from the inside, by His Holy Spirit and fire. He has brought us through to rest in Him. You do not recognize us as His brethren because you have not had this internal change. You are not His sister. You walk in man’s, John Clark’s, doctrine, which is according to the flesh, and not the Spirit of God. That is why you judge us after the flesh and do not know where we are coming from, mistaking our motives and words.
You have been deceived by a false spirit of love that has deceived the whole world and is the product of Mystery, Babylon the Great, the whore of false religion, of which you mistakenly believe yourself to be free. She has you, and those with whom you company, firmly in her grasp.
Did Jesus “love them out of it”? Look at what happened the first time He spoke after He was anointed to preach, in Luke 4. What was the reaction to the love of Christ by those “confused people”? They sought to throw Him off a cliff! So much for loving them out of it (at least as you think of love, and perform in your own righteousness along with the rest of the religious, whom you condemn)!
You are in a precarious place because you profess to be separated unto God unlike others, whom you criticize, yet you share their behaviors and actions. That makes you a hypocrite, which is something that God particularly hates. You need to repent. Try reading Reality Is What We Need, The False Religious Love that Hates (Rejects) God, and Does God Speak Only Gentle Words?
You have spoken in ignorance, Amy, and there is no excuse for being ignorant any longer. Rather than speaking about things you do not understand or know, avail yourself of what we have to say, and repent of those things we show are unfounded and untenable, on which you think to stand. Start by reading Our Testimonies and begin by getting your facts straight. Lord have mercy. Surely He has on those whom He has chosen, while others He has hardened. Father, Your will be done.
Contending for the faith once delivered to the saints, which has been obscured by false love, feigned faith, and men’s works, devoid of the cross of Christ,

I am a son of God, born of the Holy Spirit. (I might have called myself a 'Christian' but that would have very little meaning since there seem to be a lot of them around.) Today I came across your website for the first time, and found it interesting. I have now read/scanned a large number of your articles. I wanted to share a few thoughts, and let me say straight off that I do not want or need a reply. Firstly, it must be said that we seem to have much in common. Like you, I denounce 'church religion', pagan festivals, Sunday Christianity, 'once saved always saved', 'eternal torment', Calvinism, and so on. We also seem to share the view that most of the so-called 'church' is false, and I was glad to read many of the names and ministries you rightly reject. For example, you denounce the GotQuestions website. I had once thought they were a sound ministry, but a few years ago, I wrote to them asking a question and received an answer from a woman who presumed to teach me! I was quite startled. After asking further questions, it transpired that many of their articles are in fact written by women (and only checked by men)! I warned them that not only they were directly disobeying the Lord, but by allowing women to teach their ministry would inevitably fall foul of Satan's deceptions. But they didn't se...
From: Margaret To: The Path of Truth Sent: Thursday, March 17, 2016 10:39 PM Subject: Your responses Wow I was reading your responses to Julie and I stopped reading because you were so rude, it's really hard to see Christ in you words. You may want to pray before you write. I'm sorry if I offended you, Thanks From: Victor Hafichuk To: Margaret Sent: Thursday, March 24, 2016 3:11 PM Subject: RE: Your responses Julie who? And why would you apologize to us if you’re speaking the truth? You apologize because you’re not speaking the truth, Margaret. You’re a man-pleaser. “How can you believe, you who receive honor from one another and do not seek the honor that comes from God only?” (John 5:44 MKJV) “As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ” (Galatians 1:9-10 ESV).

Or maybe its not you in particular but anyone who responds to email " Blessed are the peace makers, for they shall be called sons of God." (Matt 5:9) just pray before you write, ok?

Is God, Who is Love, responsible for everything that happens, particularly evil? Can we, as Ron, who poses the question, suggests on his site, understand the nature of God and love Him because we have comprehended Him? But God says His thoughts and ways are not men's thoughts or ways. What men make God to be reflects their own thoughts and ways, as does their love.
