Thank you for your concern, however misplaced it may be.
I am a Christian, I've been one for almost 45 years now. I became one when
I trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Savior.
I am also a Mason. I've been one for19 years. This is how I know your
concern is misplaced. I'm not going to try to argue with you where it is
obvious your mind is closed to truth. One thing in your letter prompted my
response, one thing only, and it's this:
"You claim to be a Christian In our hearts, we want to believe you.
However, you have placed a stumbling block in our path that is impossible
for us to overlook..."
You see, it isn't necessary that I justify my faith to you. I suggest that
you give a close look to Rom. 14:4. Here it is (in the KJV, so there's no
question for you), to save you the trouble of looking it up ---
KJV Romans 14:4 Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own
master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able
to make him stand.
You see, there's only One to Whom I must report.
Thanks again for your concern.
