If God has eyebrows, I'm sure he has better things to do with them than to
raise them. I must admit however, that you are an inspiration to me.
I'll explain why in a moment. First off, though, you need not pity me.
God has given me the greatest gift that any man could ever receive: His
son Jesus Christ.
Jesus, while here on earth, went about doing good, not unlike John Denver,
as you've emphatically stated. However, there's a obvious difference
between your friend John, and my friend Jesus. Jesus saved mankind, while
John failed miserably at saving the planet. The Bible tells us two things
we can apply here: first, any man who does not accept Christ is lost and
will have his place in the lake of fire, and secondly, God will eventually
destroy the earth, and anything on or in it. These are known Biblical
facts that even President Bush solidly stands behind.
My dear lady, I don't see how you can apply the term "witch hunt" to the
truths posted here, unless you can tell me that John Denver was a witch on
top of everything else he was! I understand the fuzzy feeling you must
get when you read about secular organizations such as "Habitat for
Humanism" supporting those who can't work or refuse to be gainfully
employed, but what does this have to do with man's mortal soul? I can
answer that question for you: Nothing!
So let's discuss what it is about you that inspires me. You called me to
the carpet about not having a counter, guest book, or comment form on my
website. My response to that is "GUILTY AS CHARGED!" So what shall we do?
A counter is out, because the hate mail Jesus and I receive from angry men
(and women) is so plentiful, I lost count long ago. Comment form? Too
complicated to draw up, and I'm sure they could never be long enough for
the likes of those who write to me daily.
But I've got it! Let's post some letters! We'll call it "Pastor Dick's
Mailbox!" Pretty clever, if I do say so myself! Of course, there's not
enough bandwidth to handle all of the constructive and not-so constructive
criticism that floods in each day, so I'll pick out a few of the best
letters and my replies, and post them on my site within the next couple of
days. Please look for it, and know that it exists because of you.
Only because He died,
P.S. I'm glad to hear you're sharing Mr. Denver's videos with your son.
I've said many times, that I enjoy watching these shows, despite his
unacceptable lifestyle choices. My two favorites are the one where the
giant spider traps the castaways in a cave, and the best is when they grow
the radioactive seeds that wash into the lagoon.
