Dear Dan:

Thank you for your email.

I just want you to know that I don't label you as a freak. Actually I used to be just like you, I used to wonder if there really was a God at all, and if there was why was he so cruel, mean, and merciless? Believe me, I struggled with this for so long. I began to look around the world and look at the people, the craziness of the world.

Why so much violence, murder, hatred, wars, screaming, fighting, bloodshed? Why all of this you up there? Why all of this!!!!??? I was asking God at the time if you are real why don't you do something about this you invisible God that I can't even see? Do something because I hate hatred, violence, wars, murder, screaming, fighting, seeing people bloody with their limbs blown off...suffering....

I came to the point to realize that even inside myself I had so many things that I hated, that I couldn't control, but why? that he gave his life for us. He who had no sin became sin for us, nailing our sins to the cross, paying the debt that we owed. God said someone had to take the blame for the our disobedience, as the human race, and that person was God himself. All he asks is for you to believe in Jesus Christ, meaning accept Him in your heart by confessing you do sin. Being honest, if you really believe and open your heart to Him your life will change so much. It's amazing..

A personal relationship can be attained with God, this through Jesus Christ. Like I always used to say...If there really is a God, why don't you just come down here and show yourself? He did, to my amazement, and when he came he brought salvation with Him. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, the Saviour of the world, the Messiah, he came to take away the sins of the world. God is going to destroy this present world with all of its wickedness.
