Letter From Teresa About Cruelty in Churches - 21 Jan 2009

I have been looking for this type of church for a very long time.

I currently do not have a home church, and am not likely to have one here! Things are the way they are here in the South. I don't like it, I've tried to help people to understand, but they won't listen. Around here, Christians believe that God put animals here for us to do with as we please!

I can't fellowship with people like that. I'm awfully close to losing my religion. Would God be displeased if I did not go to a local church, but made you all my church family?

Teresa

Reply from Frank and Mary Hoffman

Dear Teresa:

Thank you for writing and telling us about your feelings. Almost every day, we hear from people with similar stories to yours. And, most of the people we minister to don't go to any formal church for the similar reasons. Any church that causes anyone to lose their faith or feel distressed is not being a true Christian church, and you should find other ways of being nurtured and maturing in the Light of the Lord. And, most importantly, you are welcome to be a part of our ministry.

Over the past year, we have been working with individuals and groups to set up grass roots ministries all over the world, as well as trying to find some vegan/animal friendly churches where we can refer people. Have you looked at those lists? Would you be interested in being a part of one of these grass roots ministries?

We also have a veg-Christian email discussion list where you can meet like-minded people. If you are interested in joining, please let us know.

We look forward to hearing back from you.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary

Please visit our web site, and refer your family, friends, and others

If we REALLY want God to bless America and the earth, GO VEGAN!
