READER MAIL SENT TO LANDOVER BAPTIST
DURING THE MONTH OF MAY 2010
A Sample of E-mails received.
Unedited and in original form
My husband and I have been looking into adopting a child and we were hoping to find someone from your cause that may be able to provide us with some information. If you would be so kind,
we would appreciate any direction you could give us.
Does anyone at your church read Hebrew so they can translate Ex. 22:18? The translation into English is
Do not allow a Witch to make a living. I had a Jewish Rabbi help me with my Hebrews studies. He had 52 years of training to understand it much better than I. I have a Doctorate in Theology and I have never seen a "Christian website" like yours. God said love people. Teach people and lead them into study of the scriptures. I will pray for you as so much of your website is not inspired by the Love of God, but rather a false sense of superior life. Philippians 2:3 translates out of the Greek Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind le each of you regard one another as more important that himself.
How can you reach the lost world when your page constently strives to drive them away.
I will pray that God will forgive you.
Dr. David M. Ward
PS: Looked up your zip code. Does not exist? Means you are LYING! Why if you believe in Jesus Christ as your personal Savior? Can he truly be Lord over you?

I saw this article:
You people are not Christians. You are just disgusting hate-mongers. If anyone will burn in hell, it will be you fake Christians, not a good man like the Pope.
RE: SANTA (REALLY)
I just wanted to comment
on the letter written about Santa. I know this seems a bit trite, but whoever wrote that is either a truly special Christian and has forgotten his helmet or is poorly informed on the nature of this peculiar character.
To simply state that the Santa is an anagram (not sonogram as said in the letter) for satan belongs in the speculative category as Elvis is living with Aliens and shows a complete lack of historical knowledge.
Santa's origins trace back to the Early Christian Church of Anticoch (which is the origins of Gentile Christianity, of which you and I are gentile's). Saint Nicholas of Myra was an Early devote Christian who was known through out the Christian world as a philanthropist who's most famous stories involves giving 3 bags of gold to three women so that they may marry and not become prostitutes.
As Christianity spread through out Europe, he eventually was called Sinterklass (the friendly saint) in Denmark and Christkindle (Christ
Kind) in Australia which where merely Americanized to Santa Claus and Kris Kringle respectively. Many other aspects of "secular christmas"
have Christian meaning, such as the Christmas tree by Saint Boniface to disprove the Norse gods he cut the Tree of Life to prove Jesus'
supremacy. There are some aspects of modern Christmas that have pagan origins but have developed into a secular category.
We should strive to teach our children right from wrong and stop blaming our failure as parents on aspects within greater society. If anyone's child is damned to "eternal hell" I highly doubt that a belief in Jolly Saint Nick will ever be the cause. I would suggest you remove that rubbish from your website as not is it completely inaccurate but offensive to anyone with a hint of intellect.
You people are evil. Speaking about
how black women are ugly and etc. What kind of christian people are you? You don't live here in michigan--and the ugliest people I see are
the whites! Especially those ugly arse big head children. I'm hispanic and most black women are beautiful. White people are pure evil and that is what make you people really ugly, in addition to your ugly pink skin. That's why you all require alot of plastic surgery. Your hair is nasty and stringy and most of you raise your children to think they are superior and beautiful. You trolls are so brain washed. You are the ugliest race and your type are not even in the bible--where in the hell do you come from?

so, say you did fornicate, or idolate something. there's no chance of redemption for these people? they can't pray to God and accept jesus and ask for forgiveness?
Your facts seem quite bent to fit what ever your talking about, did a bit of research and I could not find any thing that
validates your facts any where are they just invented to fit your context ???
Your article on
preventing a child from being homosexual was absolutely despicable, horrifying and offensive. I was shocked to read the "suggestions" given. Homosexuality is not a sin nor is it an act of the devil!
