Re: Tad Mitsui’s letter to the editor, Oct. 4.
Yes, Tad, I agree, there is so much work done in the field of Christian mercy, also pastoring and leading Christian churches. People in that line of work certainly do not look to become financially wealthy, except perhaps in cases where a leader becomes self-focused. Then in your letter you say and I quote, “Religion is on the decline because science solved many mysteries of life.”
You may be correct when you say “religion” but biblical Christianity is growing world wide. But not so in our western culture, where we want to be our own god, and I don’t particularly like what I see; just watch the news. If that is how science solved our mysteries, then that is not very encouraging to me. Yes, I agree, as Christians we mess up, and that is the reason why we sing “Amazing Grace.” For example, Corrie ten Boom later forgave the Nazi concentration camp guard for his atrocities.
