Letter from Candice Concerning Christianity and Our Ministry – 15 Feb 2004
This is a very good site you have made, I am not sure how it fits into my individual beliefs, but I do know people like you ARE doing God's work. People like you make great strides in bringing modern Christianity back (or should I say forward) to what I believe God intended it to be...a loving, compassionate, and peaceful belief system and way of life.
Too many times I have heard in a Christian church that animals have no souls...this may be one of the many reasons I have turned away from the religion itself. I have only seen a sanctioned lack of compassion for all living creatures, mostly the ones we don't completely understand, and the words of the Bible twisted to support this thinking. Until now, until I came across your site.
Thank you for taking the time to share your views and beliefs, you have really made me think about things, and my own prejudices towards an entire religion and belief system, and that is always a good thing. You have helped to put the teachings of Jesus back into Christianity at least for me to see, and I hope you will continue to do this good work. Thank you so much, God Bless.

Thank your very much for your letter and very encouraging compliments.
Our decision to begin our Internet ministry (late 1997) was because we had met and corresponded with many people who had the same feelings that you have about the "church".
Mary says that the Christianity of Christ has, for the most part, been hijacked. We're trying to lift up the love and compassion of Jesus above the hypocrisy so that people will see the truth, just as you observed.
Thank you again. We look forward to hearing from you again.
In the Love of the Lord,
