Wiccan is furious!! - 07/13/2003
(CM Note: The following email contained quite a bit of profanity, especially toward the end. We replaced profane words with *****, but tried not to lose the passion in this email.)
I'm am upset and absolutely disgusted by your utter ignorance regarding other religions, especially Wicca. We are not evil. You say we give praise to a false God, THAT IS IN YOUR EYES. Maybe we feel you give praise to a false God, and maybe we feel your beliefs are "evil" as you call us, but we don't go around telling the world to believe in Wicca. There are things I disagree with in your religion but I also respect it's followers and believe that people have the right to choose what they believe in. You are without respect and therefore no one respects you, except people who have been brainwashed by your LIES. Isn't lying a sin. You are pathetic, pushing your beliefs onto others. Your God would be disgusted in you to learn of your judgment in his name. Who are you to tell others what to do. You are giving your religion a VERY bad name.
"To say that the sun exists is true. To say that gravity exists is true. We know that God exists, so that's true. Likewise, the devil also exists." This is like comparing apples to dogs. First off the sun and gravity are scientifically proven to be real, to exist. God and Satan have never been proven to exist, you can compare them to a child's imaginary friend.
I'm am so furious with this site, and your factless sentences. You are so ******* stupid. Your a ******* moron and you WILL burn in hell you ignorant piece of dirt. You make me sick. And don't give me any of this "I'll pray God gives mercy to your lost soul" ****! **** you and your prayers. I will block them and stop you from harming others.
You will burn in hell for LYING and not respecting others beliefs you sick ****. I hope one day you realise how evil you really are. **** YOU! (I bet your spewing that I'm only 16, oh no another soul lost, you pathetic worm)
CONTENDER MINISTRIES RESPONSE:
Hi Sue. Thanks for writing to Contender Ministries. I'm sorry you felt the need to resort to profanity and name calling, but we have apparently touched on a nerve. That's okay. I just need to respond to a few points you brought up.
I was watching a police show on television some time ago, and saw a sting operation in which undercover police officers bought drugs from dealers on the street. Invariably, some of the dealers would ask, "You a cop?" The officer would say "no," and the deal was made. Satan often goes undercover. The Bible tells us that he can even masquerade as an angel of light. Just because a certain religion professes no belief in Satan, does not mean its adherents are not falling for his lies. It just means that they're unaware that they are. You said God would be disgusted by our judgmentalism. God has told us in His Word (The Bible) to watch for false prophets and false apostles. God has told us to contend for the faith. He has told us to evangelize. In other words, God has told us to do just what we are doing.
Of course lying is a sin. Please tell me specifically what lies you have found on our site. If we find any inaccuracies on our website, they would be unintentional, and we would correct them immediately. Simply accusing us of lying does us no good though, if you won't tell us what information is wrong. You say we'll "burn in hell," yet you don't believe in hell. Which is it? If we're right, then our salvation has been purchased by Christ, and the only ones who need to fear hell are those who do not accept Christ as savior. If you're right, then there is no hell. I tell you with conviction that all the evidence points to Jesus as the way and the truth and the life (John 14:6). The Bible is true, whether you choose to believe that or not. Eventually, all will be faced with the truth. The question is, will you be ready?
It is true that the existence of God cannot be scientifically proven. Neither can many "scientific" theories. Prominent evolutionists have said that evolution cannot be scientifically proven, but I'm sure you believe in evolution. You say that gravity has been scientifically proven. Can you tell me what proof there is for gravity? If your answer is that things fall when we drop them, or we don't fly off this spinning planet, well those aren't proofs -- they're evidences. There are many evidences for the existence of God, too. Just look around you.
While you may find our website personally distasteful, we do it as an act of obedience to God, and an act of love for those who don't yet know Him as their Lord. We may touch some nerves now and then, but no one is forced to visit our website or read the information we've posted. I encourage you to re-read the last paragraph of your email, and see if you can find where the hatred lies. We will be praying for you. We pray that the Holy Spirit will break through the wall of hatred that surrounds your heart, and reveal Himself to you in a personal and powerful way.
