My God Is Better Than Yours

Letters from November 28, 2002

This is just my opinion, of course, but I'm too scared of them to give my name.


Stand at the gate: What a good piece on the "Crusaders," assuming all the information is accurate. It says several things many have suspected: "Our God is better than your God." Mr. Korosec accurately noted that many Muslim converts do so to grease their migration to the United States. Surprised? Why don't more of these converts stay in their countries to further the Christian cause? For Christian missionaries, it is just another way to travel and see the world. If it were not so, then why not in our own back yard? I am reminded of the prophet Jeremiah in the Old Testament. Jeremiah is called to preach, but instead of sending him out to the pagan and idolatrous world, the Lord sends him to the gate of the Lord's House. The Lord tells Jeremiah to "stand at the gate of the Lord's House [temple] and proclaim there this word...amend your ways and your doings, and I will let you dwell in this place." Even worse, when these people get in trouble in these volatile foreign countries, they deny everything (Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer, now on tour promoting a book), and then it takes tax money to figure out a way to get them back.
