Re: “Evangelicals making tracks in Hot Springs

Mr. Chitwood,

I just wanted to clarify that, according to most Bibles in publication, God ordered Abraham to kill his son Isaac but provided a ram at the last moment, and therefore, Abraham called that place something to the effect of "the LORD will Provide". I think the order to kill Daniel came from a Persian or "Chaldean" emperor who was upholding laws he decreed based upon the advice of his satraps. The motif of non-Jewish rulers being easily persuaded by both Jewish and non-Jewish priests can be found throughout the Bible. I agree with your recommending that "newreformation" specify those very vague conclusions, but at the same time, that article is all over the place and reads largely like an attack on the outspoken Republican mayor of a traditionally "Blue Dog" Democrat Arkansas city. "New Reformation", cite your statements, please.

For all readers,

The other big theme in the Bible is that "There is none who does good, no not one," and therefore, the same Creator who spoke all things into existance, (whether 6,000 years ago or 13.5 billion years is an entirely different discussion), was also able to fashion Himself as a baby in the womb of a virgin, live a holy life, die an unholy death (again, after the local ruler was persuaded by the priestly bunch to do so) as a sacrifice once for ALL mankind (especially to those who believe), and was raised up in glory on the third day, giving us the hope of life beyond death ("for those who believe have passed from death into life").

I leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Paul who was called Saul that pretty well summarizes my faith in my Lord: "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable."

Thanks for reading,

Tony E Mason
