Landover Baptist Mail Received
October 2001 (unedited and in original form)
First off...to take the bible out of context is no better than Jehova
witness. Look man your site claims to be Christian and affiliated
with Baptist theology. However, everyone of your comments are just that,
they are only your comments. I fact they are hardley biblically sound.
Im not upset that you have an opinon.....BUT. Dont dare affiliate
yourself with the Baptist theology because you are not agreeing with it.
So basically this is what im saying... be what you say you are! If
your going to be Baptist then be Baptist if not then shut your mouth and
stop insulting the word of God!!!
I've read your website. You have grossly distorted the teachings
of Jesus as well as Christianity. Not only do you grossly misquote
Jesus, you mock him, and therefore mock the word of God. Your website
is filled with hate and deceit. Your twisted beliefs rival that of
the Muslim extremists who murder while hiding behind the faith of Islam.
You spread your hate while hiding behind the Christian faith.
Your church is in isolation. Your church is dangerous. I
believe your church is probably being run by a group of "familiars".
Jesus asks, "What good will it do to only love those who love you?"
I will do my part and pray for your church as well as your church's "familiars"
You peopel have no God given compassion/.....you are worse than the
Taliban inmy eyes.....or any satanic cult for that matter..you are way
too closed and have become enemies of God as opposoed to his friend.
First let me say that I and our church only use the KJV and preach
against all modern versions.
I found your web site and was interested in the
article by your wife and her experience with the NIV. I am always looking
for comparisons of NIV vs KJV that I can use to point out the dangers.
The two that your wife mentioned about "Jesus wept" and "homosexuality"
interested me so I looked them up both on my computer bible program in
printed versions and did the comparison. To my shock I found that the NIV
and the KJV were the same both used "Jesus wept" and both used "homosexuality"
in the verses sited by your wife. I am interested to know what printing
of the NIV she used as it is obviously different from the ones that I have
available to me. Don't get me wrong, I am not defending the NIV but
am concerned that if a new Christian was to do what I did in reading your
wife's article and then comparing for themselves only to find out that
the NIV they have in there hand is the same in those areas as the KJV it
may do more harm than good. Perhaps a statement of the date of publication
or even ISBN number would let folks know that all NIV versions are not
the same (at least accorinding to my comparison and your wife's experience).
I look forward to hearing from you.

I stumbled onto your web site today...i am apalled. Your beliefs are
way off based, and your legalizm is atrocious. When Jesus died on the cross
, he abolished the law, and has given us grace. He does not look on the
outward, but on the heart, and you deny that, making you a cult. You are
denying the power in the blood of Jesus and maintaining a legalistic lifestyle.
Ask yourself this..would Jesus associate himself with you people..absolutely
not. You put down and repel the unbelievers..whats with that t shirt..?
You people are making a mockery of my Savior, and should be protested.
You are no better than the abortionists. Yes it is wrong, but you go about
it the wrong way. Jesus did not hold back, but he taught the truth in LOVE.
With compassion, Jesus did not turn away the unbelievers..try reading your
Bible, and stop making up your own religion. Do you not know whatthe
Great Commision is? Obviously not...you sit there in your little community
of haters, and turn away the hurting and dying. You watch as the world
is dying and you do nothing. What would Christ think of that? I pray
your blind eyes are opened. You are hurting the Christian name. You
are sick people...and I pray Gods forgiveness for your souls.
As a born again believer, I am amazed at your slogan, "Unsaved not
Also, if the USA did in fact drop pork on the Moslems, I have no doubt
it would serve to unite the entire Moslem world against this country---Moslems
everywhere would be against us.
Thirdly, the reason why there is no doubt a tremendous amount of obesity,(which
is a disease in itself), cancer, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and
other degenerative diseases in your church is that swine is one of your
favorite foods. You pray and pray and praaaaaaaaaaaay for your diseases
to be healed, but they are not. If you will go to your concordance and
look up "swine flesh" in the book of Isaiah, you will see that the Lord
is very displeased with those who consume swine. Just cutting out pork
from your diets would do more than all your prayers for healing.
With regard to not eating swine flesh, the Moslems are smarter than
you and many other Christians!
"Unsaved NOT Welcome!"????
Unbelievable! Jesus came to SAVE SINNERS....

I was on your web site when I took a look at the quiz comparing the
Christian God to the Muslim god. I did not like this, it is not how
Jesus would have approached it. When you do not answer a question
right, it says "Wrong!, You Unsaved Moron". It is very disturbing
and will turn off unbelievers. I am a baptist myself, and I still
do not like this. I think you should take it off your website before
anyone else sees it.

I am a christan mother ,and have four sons .Our boys play with boy
dolls.NO where in the BIBLE does it say that it is wrong for a boy to show
LOVE.GOD IS LOVE!!!!!!!And if anyone is possessed by the devil IT IS YOU!!!!!!HATE
IS NOT OF GOD. And playing with dolls does not make a children gay THE
DEVIL DOES!! I had two brothers and I played in the mud with cars and went
hunting and fishing and it did not make me gay,it gave wonderful childhood
memories of my family.If your covered by the blood of JESUS the devil cannot
possess you.You need to read your BIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I pray GOD will
deliver you from hate and fill you with his precious HOLY GHOST.
A CHRISTAN MOTHER -
At a time when the world is experiencing so vividly the perils of religious
intolerance, your page on "nonbelievers" is offensive, destructive and
absolutely inconsistent with the teaching of Christ. The interpretation
of our Bible as an exclusionary doctrine is only one step removed from
those who would use the Koran to justify their militant actions. I sincerely
hope the Lord will lead you to reconsider this point of view.
What is happening with you people. I, as an enthusiastic baptist and
above all a re-born christian, feel ashamed of reading the pile of crap
that people that share my faith (I hope) have come up with...
Come on you guys!, Stop playing the Urban Legend detective and get
on with your business. There is a lot of pain and grief in this world,
a lot of people that has not yet heard about Jesus and His everlasting
Love and Salvation plan for mankind.Let's give that people the Good News
that have been given to us. For the fanatic behavior like the one I am
seen here, we Christians are being branded as weird, un-happy people, no
better than the Taleeban that abuses the religion to set their own absurd
rules for their own convenience. Paul says everything is allowed, but not
everything is good for me to do. Let's pray to the Lord so He can lead
the way. Let's be a Big big YES, instead a gloomy NO. Toy Story is not
your enemy, I have not seen all those things you mention in your web site,
My baby has a Woody character figurine and a Buzz as well. He doesn't worship
them, he has not been taken by demons, he is a perfectly normal happy child
that is starting to know about Jesus and His love, but he is also living
his chidhood in a very simple manner. I feel happy with the way he is,
I love him pretty much and I strongly believe that Jesus came to save us
so we can live a new rich life on Him. Not for us to stop Living!
Remember that Jesus condemned all those religious people that based
their beliefs in the law, rather then their personal relationship with
God. That same religious people is the one that brought Him to the cross.
God Bless you.
oh for the love of god where the hell do you people get off saying
the kinds of things you did in that article. just because everyone else
in the world doesn't celebrate hollidays the same way you do you decide
it "homosexuals" and "pedophiles" what a narrow uneducated point
of view. its unbelievable how a religion based on love and understanding
could produce such stupid hate loving individuals. YOU
SHOULD BE ASHAMED!
I think that your chruch members are decieved. I believe strongly that
what you are doing is against the will of God and sad. Christ called us
to be the light of the world not to become hermitts and seclude ourselves
from it. how can you minister to the unsaved if you dont invite them to
your temple. It is the sick that need healing not the whole. but then again
you know that. And having to pay $50.00 dollars and a two year reservation
to listen to your sermon. God's word is free for all who want to hear it.
I am a Christian and it's people like yourself why others will not come
to christ you are shutting everyone out and charging for your services.
Let he that is without sin cast the first stone. If you will not let in
the unsaved who do they become saved? or were your church members born
If you would explain why your web site says the name of your church
and then under it, it says unsaved not welcomed. If i was unsaved
i would take offence to that and probably think the baptist church was
a joke......now i don't know what kind of church it is but my friend im
trying to witness to saw that and got scared.....i just don't think its
right to put something like that on your web site....thank you
Your website says that it is a satirical newsletter and a parody. I
don't know who you are or why you put up this website...it is a sad joke.
I will not waist more time reading your site or even worrying about it,
however I will say this...it is a sad generalization and stereotype of
Christianity that displays someone's (or many peoples) obvious internal
bitterness to Jesus and Christians. I will never come to your site again...but
I will pray that Jesus will reveal Himself to you and set you free, that
He will meet your needs and bless you and all that you love. God bless.
My empathy is for all those who fall prey to YOUR interpretation of
Gods' WORD. His obvious love and committment to His people
evidently has not been imbedded in your heart, otherwise such attitude
and judgement of others would not come forth out of your mouth. I could
site more instances of His WORD than you ever could...but I shall not waste
your time. I conclude at this moment as I am typing this, you and those
who are weak enough to actually listen AND believe YOUR words are lost
sheep and in desperate need of more prayer than you have, I am certain,
already recieved.May GOD have mercy on your soul for all the mistreatment
of His WORD and damage to His children you have done.
MY PRAYERS ARE FOR YOU....GODS' CHILD
you people are disgusting and disturbed i have been studying the bible
closly for the past 12 years of my life i have gone to catholic schools
my entire life and no where in the bible dose it say i should be taken
to heart only my message should be you people are just a bunch of sick
I'm not being biased because I'm a Christian
myself but, I believe your criticism of the movie "Dinosaur" is particularly
harsh. How dare you say that?I don't know about you freaks but I don't
sit there watching Disney movies all day waiting for the slightest little
thing to pop up. If I wouldn't know any better I'd say YOU are the ones
who are the sexual freaks! Sitting there wasting your time to see some
"penis" or word or anything like that. Only truly perverted people can
see those types of things. Get your mind out of the gutter! That is so
RUDE how you say gays and lesbians are against God. What the heck?! If
God hated gays and lesbians, wouldn't they all be dead by now? It's okay
to be a homosexual, it isn't like you're a freak or anything. How dare
you insult people in such ways?! And you all say you're so pure and God
will forgive you for eveything! What a LIE! I don't give a crap! Post this
message on your website! Post my name, address, phone number, screen name,
and whatever the heck you want! You are all messed up! Children aren't
perverted like you! And the United Sates of America is not a Christian
country. We are a mix of every race and religion and you need to respect
that. I'll have you know that Christians were the designers of the movie
too you know! The world is not plotted against you and Disney is not some
sex-crazed maniacal company that wants to turn all children into sex maniacs.
The fact that you think an egg is a penis is totally ignorant of yourselves.
This is in response to the diet that Heather Hardwick put on the internet.
Is she serious? This is all I want to know. I mean she preaches
of good health and all but yet she is evry oese. Isnt obesity a sin?
The body is the temple and you should take care of it, you only get one
chance at the this body. That is why i will be very amazed if this
is really a true way of eating heathly. It must be some sort of joke.
Hi, I've been a life-long christian and I accidently got
on to your website by searching for dates and information on the baptist
religion. But when I saw "the unsaved are unwelcom..shoo demons"
I got sick to my stomach. How do you expect the unsaved to come to god
when you scare them away like that. Some people don't become christians
because they think that christians think there better than others and "shoo
demons" is a perfect example of that. I just thought i'd share my opinion
to you..Thank you..God Bless
I loved your promo! My name is Janet Downs. My husband
and I are youth pastors at Dickson First Assembly of God in Dickson, TN
. This is our first year for doing Hell House. If possible
can you tell me how you did your promo? What software you used?
Can we use it and modify with our youth group name? We will be in
prayer for your group as well as ours. Have a great day in the Lord.
God Bless - Janet
I visited your site. First I thought it was okay but read your church
policy. You better read the whole bible you can not base your beleifs on
a pick and chose method. I will pray for you, for God to enlighten
Jeanie barkley Jeanie&Augie
Is this site what you have chosen to do for a meaningful social contribution?
It's a sad shame when fanatics like yourselves roam the earth.
You are not anymore different that the radical Islamic Fundamentalist that
have declared the Jihad against Americans and those who support us.
Instead of preaching your rhetoric, you should be offering solace and brotherly
love to all of God's children; Jews, Muslims, Christians, other religions,
Gays and abortion providers. I've read the Bible, and the only time
I found it reference violence is when God, itself (himself), abhored it
and damned all the perpetrators of violence to Hell.
So, I ask that you think about what you are saying to people.
Because they will react and put some innocent person at extreme risk.
