ONE READER'S RESPONSE

"Dear CAH: Do not continue to send The Examiner. What the world does not need now is another power-mad, position-crazy egomaniac. May the Lord have mercy on you and try to lead you out of your delusion of being God's gift to humanity. (Jesus was and is!) We don't need anymore divisive, ineffective critics who try to flog the insecure Christian into submission! My yellow journalism award to Gaylon Embrey! Your January issue inspired me to write." - Richardson, TX

Editor's Note: All of that was on one of our return cards! It was written by the wife of the man to whom the paper was addressed. I gather that she did not appreciate the January Examiner. Apparently she isn't too fond of me or Gaylon Embrey. She really was upset when she wrote, but I hope venting her feelings made her feel better.

Just think of it: a "power-mad, position-crazy egomaniac," who is in a "delusion of being God's gift to humanity." My modesty just won't allow me to accept such accolades and praise! I am not really that great!

She is exactly right, "we don't need anymore divisive, ineffective critics who try to flog the insecure Christian into submission!" That is the situation already in large measure. The insecure Christians have already been "flogged" into submission as member-slaves of the C of C Church! They are intimidated and afraid to seek and act upon the freedom that Christ has provided. I want to free the member-slaves, not "flog" them into submission to any man, body of men, or church institution. Each of us should be solely and wholly submissive to the one and only Lord/Ruler - Jesus Christ.

May God bless this dear saint. I hope that in time she will be more objective in the study of these vital matters. We have stopped the paper as she requested.
