Now, I usually dont find myself writing to web sites such as your. for the
same reason I dont discuss Jesus with many Christians. people are so ready
to defend what they believe that they dont have time to listen to others. I
know that it would be pointless to try to convince you that Jesus is real,
just as it is pointless to try to convince most christians that they need
to come to reality with the real Christ rather than the one represented in
American society. I would like, however to say this.
God does not need to defend himself and it is not up to those who follow
Christ, to defend him.
What people dont understand is we serve an experiental God. meaning, their
is a depth of knowing God that only comes through experience. so for me to
try to convince you, would be impossible because God doesnt serve our
ability to debate.
I understand that the greatest frusturation with the Church is that it is
ignorant and condemning. and you have very good reason to be angry with
the church, if the christians were to reflect their Christ, the christians
would have to stop their idea of church. the reason that I wrote to you is
to ask you one thing. I realize the root of this site is grounded in
bitterness towards the church and its christians. I would like to ask, not
on behalf of christians, but on behalf of Christ, for your forgiveness of
our ignorance and condmnation. I am not asking for the sites forgiveness,
I am asking for yours specifically. I dont know your name, but I know that
you have been offended by us and we are not called to offend. so I ask for
your forgiveness specifically, and I ask that you would have grace to
forgive all the ignorant christians that you meet in the future.
