Hostile Email

Written by Karl Dahlfred on .

The other day I received a hostile email, presumably from a visitor to our website who did not like what he read. If memory serves me correctly, this is the first hostile mail that I have received in response to the website although I am certain that there have been others who, upon discovering the website, felt disdain and contempt rise up in their hearts but decided against letting us know their feelings. However, a man with an email address in the Netherlands has written with the following advice:

"go back home you fool and take that jesus with you"

That was the entire content of the email. Unfortunately, even if I were to have a change of heart and heed his suggestion, I have no control over where Jesus goes and what He does. I proclaim His message but that is all. Jesus is in Thailand and I have no say over the matter. Jesus said, "I will build my church and the gates of hell shall prevail against it." (Matthew 16:18). Jesus also knew that this work of establishing His church would not

meet with popular approval, as He states elsewhere, "Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you and revile you and spurn your name as evil, on account of the Son of Man! Rejoice in that day, and leap for joy, for behold, your reward is great in heaven; for so their fathers did to the prophets." (Luke 6:22) Jesus is here to stay and He will always have those who proclaim Him and are not dissuaded by unkind words which lack substance.
