welcomes your questions and comments. Due to the large
volume of email we get, we aren't able to respond to every
one. Over the years we've received many book-length
e-mails, e-mails filled with profanity, and
accusations that lack any
We don't respond to these
(and a few other kinds of e-mails), either
because we don't have time or we don't feel they
warrant a response. In order to respond more
efficiently to those who have honest comments or
questions, we've created the following e-mail guidelines.
To increase the chance of your email being read and
responded to, please adhere to these guidelines.
Please limit your email to one or two main points.
Long or angry diatribes will be ignored without being read.
Please send us your own thoughts or questions. Pasting an article
into your email will likely result in your email being deleted
without being read. Also,
please do not send us links to
articles and expect us to read them. We don't have the luxury of
that kind of time. Feel free to include one or two points from
such an article in your email to us.
Before sending a question, please
mailbag. You may find your question has already been
answered. When using the search form, include the words
"mail bag" (two words) as part of your search words and it will
return only results from the mail bag. You may also search
the entire site for answers to your questions.
If you are sending us an email with the sole purpose of having
your email published in the mailbag, please realize that we do not
post every email. We receive far too many e-mails to put all of
them in the mailbag. You always have the option of starting your
own website to publish differing views. Conversely, understand
that your email may be published in the mailbag. If
you write to us, we will presume your consent to do so.
Many people write us to object to the fact that we are critical of
unbiblical religious beliefs. Please read "The
Mission of Contender Ministries" and "Has
Our Website Made You Angry" before sending us objections that
these articles answer.
Many people write to tell us that our website is biased. Please
realize that this is a Christian website. There are plenty of
websites out there that provide alternate points of view. We are
not obligated to publish your religious beliefs simply because
you do not like ours.
While we welcome emails from people who disagree with us, please
be specific in your objections. Some people call us liars or
accuse us of spreading false information, but are unable to
produce specific examples and support their position. Blanket
accusations without specifics will likely be deleted without a
If you wish to be critical or raise objections, please be civil in
doing so. Profane language will result in your email being
deleted with no response.
