Letter: No one’s faith should be scorned

Freedom of expression is a human right endowed by our Creator; but like with all rights, there are parameters within which we exercise them. My dad used to say the only right we really have is the right to do the right thing.

Letter: Christianity is the truth

Every December, many articles about Jesus, the Bible, and Christianity are written in print magazines, online news sources and blogs. I read some last month that ranged from denigrating the Bible to denying the existence of Jesus to vilifying Christians as a bunch of hypocritical buffoons. The same worn-out arguments are always presented as “proof” that Christianity is nothing but a sham.

Letter: Herding sheep gives new perspective of Jesus

I grew up on an Army base in the southwestern corner of South Dakota. In high school, I agreed to help a friend in working a day with sheep that grazed the grasslands of our base. We were to meet the Wyoming ranchers at the Army guard gate early in the morning.

“Just thinking” about an article in the Lodi News-Sentinel on Oct. 28 ... United Congregational Christian Church will allow gay and lesbian marriages, welcome all kinds of families ... This comes through the United Congregational Christian Church, “love makes a family” ...

Religion letter: Merry Christmas to believers and unbelievers

Merry Christmas to all of us ... a most blessed Christmas to us all. Yes, believer and unbeliever alike are witness to the divine love of God, a love greater than tongue can tell, a love that defines us and our world, a love we believe or not.

Letter: Different ways of showing gratitude and kindness

Neighbors have helped me so much: Rev. Richard Francis and Wylie, especially with electrical problems. Shelly’s husband is so considerate in idling his truck quietly through the neighborhood. Also: Mr. Petersen and dogs, Bill, Elfie, Donna, Karen and Philip, to give me rides. And Garth, John Spagnola, Frank, Randy, the computer-research people at the front desk of the library have saved me tremendous time.

Letter: Legalism in religion is destructive

The Pharisees and Sadducees were noted for — and taken to task for — their legalism by Christ Jesus Himself. He called them white-washed sepulchres, graves, clean on the outside, rotten inside. He also chastised them for imposing heavy burdens on others that they couldn’t and wouldn’t bear themselves, practicing the greatest lawlessness there is ... legalistic religionism.

Letter: Unity comes only from Jesus Christ in Holy Communion

Final Battle? Unity (Communion of men-Communism-New World Order) versus (Communion with Most Holy Triune God — Catholic Eucharist). Cut like a sword, the two opposites can clearly be seen in two opposing halves. But wait! Since Vatican II, Salt has taken on another ingredient which corrupts, blurs distinctions: ecumenism (false, man-made attempt at unity).

Letter: Jesus’ perceived silence does not mean he condones homosexuality

It’s often said that since Jesus didn’t say anything about homosexuality, Christians shouldn’t be against it (or gay marriage). However, there are some serious flaws with this logic.

Letter: God says not to fear our enemies

America has had 13 years since Sept. 11, 2001, to reflect on the nature of our foreign enemies. Is it fair to say, that for the first time in our history, we are being attacked by a violent, oppressive religious group, based in the Middle East?

Letter: Remembering German preacher Martin Luther

For having been named one of the top three most influential people of the last 1,000 years, Martin Luther is still relatively unknown to most Americans (who often confuse him with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.).

Letter: Written testimony from a dying woman

Several years ago, I went on four short-term mission trips to Europe and South America, we handed out gospel tracts on the street or at metro stations. Also, we went to the prisons in those countries, prisoners got a Bible and a message from the Word. On these trips, I met Wilma Warta. Her life was a living testimony of her love for her Savior. Wilma went to be with her Lord in 2013, and this is her written testimony she left for us:

Letter: Everyone is invited to RSVP with the Lord

Eternity awaits us all, in one way or another, and so does the invitation to spend it with our Creator. The gospel of Christ Jesus is that formal invitation, and it has an RSVP. Everyone is invited, and everyone must RSVP ... no reply is a reply.

Letter: Catholics should hold onto original traditions

There is a Protestant on television who attacks the present Pope as favoring Muslims; he separated him from the two previous popes which he likes. First and foremost, history doesn’t operate in a vacuum. Apostasy exists because of many compromises following Vatican II (many antichrists — 1 John 2:18).
