Letter about Aaron Swartzentruber’s Letter to the Editor...


Mon, Mar 9th, 2015
Posted in Ostrander Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

Aaron Swartzentruber’s recent letter gives us insight into the mind of the fundamentalist, whether Christian or Muslim. These people pick and choose “God’s Word” to fit their agenda. For instance, does the average fundamentalist Christian follow “God’s Word” and never eat pig meat or shellfish? Does it trouble the fundamentalist that God time and again ordered thousands of murders and rapes in the Old Testament? And what of the story of the Great Flood? God is said to have drowned nearly all humanity and animals in a fit of rage. Who here is more consumed by evil, God or Satan? Who in their right mind would worship such a God?

Luckily, as Christians, we do have someone to believe in: Christ.

It is long past time to realize that the Bible was written by men and is the Word of Man, and the often crazed and sadistic God of the Old Testament is certainly not a creature to worship.Of course we should feel sorry for these fundamentalists who push their hatred upon others, but it’s not an easy task. Hatred is a disease that is easily spread. I felt hatred coursing through my veins by merely reading Mr. Swartzentruber’s vile letter.
