I write in response to the two critics of the stance taken by the Reverend Leslie Steele (letters, August 21) – a stance which is taken by many Christians who are extremely disturbed by many of the changes being imposed upon us.
Because of our deep concern in the light of many of these changes, Christians are often vilified and viewed as being doggedly belligerent, but in fact this is rather a deep expression of our allegiance to the one, Jesus Christ, whom we seek to honour in our daily faltering walk. Our ministers in particular bear a heavy burden of responsibility as they dispense the truth from God’s Word.
However, it is perhaps worth mentioning one area of life which will never change, namely the day of our passing from this scene of time and the requirement for each of us to give an account for the way we have passed along our journey of life.
So, to our two friends and to the very many more, I would implore you to take a peep into the Maker’s handbook – the Bible – and perhaps you will discover that God really loves you too.
