Aiyana Posted October 27, 2018 Share Posted October 27, 2018 I hadn't talked to this friend since deconverting in 2014. She sent me this letter out of nowhere. Here's part of it. I share it with y'all because I know you'll understand! She doesn't seem to see the irony in telling me "It is never right to scare people... fear is never the right approach to come to Christ", and then following it almost immediately with "I pray you would turn back to Him before I lose you forever." Fam. THAT'S FEAR. "I have never stopped loving you, even though we haven’t talked in a long time. I pray and think of you often. I pray you would open your heart to the Lord. I know you were hurt by the church you attended. They were wrong. That is not Christianity. I never wanted to scare you into Christ. And I was so wrong too. Forgive me! Left Behind was so wrong because they assumed things and took liberties. It is never right to scare people. Fear is not love. I have learned differently. It’s taken years to understand. Fear is never the right approach to come to Christ. Love....true Love, is telling you that Jesus Christ is the only way to eternal life and heaven. And only by giving yourself over to Him can you be “complete” and fulfill your true purpose. He made us to be filled with Him. To be united for all eternity. It will be unlike anything we could ever imagine. True joy. He knew us before we were born and loved us so much. He knows the numbers of hairs on our head and the number of tears we have ever cried. Amazing love. I now believe our time left on Earth is dangerously short. The world is changing and the dangers are increasing hundred-fold. I pray you would turn back to Him before I lose you forever." 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
