Letter: Reverend challenges pastor to re-read the Bible

Ponoka Reverend responds to a religion column titled “Children of God”.

Dear Editor,

I would like to express my dismay at the article, “Children of God” by Robin King (April 18 edition).

For the record, it must be stated that Mr. King has rejected basic Christian teachings that have been confessed and defended by the Church for thousands of years.

It is with a tinge of sadness that I read his comments. He is a sheep that has gone astray and I hope that he would once again be able to hear the call of the Great Shepherd, Jesus Christ.

To his credit, he does state his views as his own, and does acknowledge that they are not in line with what many, many Christians believe. I would advise him to set everything else aside and spend a year just reading the Bible.

Start with John 3:16 and weep. This is about your eternal destiny, Mr. King and the many whom you are leading down the wrong path with you. At some point in your life you were convicted that it was your calling to preach Christ. Who bewitched you? How is it that you can now say that its fine for everyone to travel their own way?

Just a cursory examination of the world’s religions and philosophies show that there are fundamental differences. Look at the world in which we live, friend. And see that there is only one Prince of Peace.

Reverend Mitch Ramkissoon, Parkland Reformed Church (URCNA)
