A Sincere and Heartfelt “Thank You”
Dear DBO Reader,
This website has been up for seven months now, and a word of appreciation to my longsuffering and patient readers is long overdue. Your kind expressions of support and encouragement have meant more to me than you will ever know. Here’s a sampling of your comments:
“I want to thank you for saying the things you do in a manner which places orthodox Christianity at its center and foundation.”
“I like your website. I visit it several times each week. Keep up the thought-provoking work.”
“I recently stumbled across your website and greatly enjoyed the visit. In fact, I got hooked and didn’t stumble back out for hours!”
“Thanks for the great website. I’m so glad there are still Christian men with a backbone who are not afraid to shoot the Gospel scatter-gun and not worry about who it hits. Thanks for not playing politics with one party or the other.”
“God bless you for all your great work, and a special thanks for speaking out on Constitutional matters in this nation of eroding freedoms.”
“Thank you for your clear and undiluted proclamation of the truth.”
“As always, your writing is accessible and edifying. God bless you.”
That so many people share our desire for a rebirth of biblical and constitutional values in America is gratifying indeed. I see this website as a marginal note, a question mark, a corrective to existing theologies. My chief concern has always been that the message of the gracious and holy God revealed in Jesus Christ be the heart and core of the church’s proclamation, as opposed to the historical relativism, rational orthodoxy, and pietistic experientialism of our day.
I see in today’s church nothing less than the final, most complete, and worst offspring of modern Protestantism which, unless it is overcome, will make the evangelical church ripe for judgment. To believe that any political movement and Christianity belong inseparably together is a betrayal of the Gospel. Not man with his desires, longings, and needs but God’s promise and commandment—that should be the theme and task of the church.
And so, a sincere and heartfelt “thank you” for your readership and support. Forgive me for taking so long to acknowledge it.
To the praise of the glory of His grace,
July 25, 2003
