After my appearances on Life Today, I received a number of emails from people who saw me on the show. There have also been a number of comments made on this blog from Christians more interested in preaching than having a conversation.
While more letters are coming in, I thought I’d share certain excerpts from a few of the emails.
They can basically be lumped into one of a handful of categories…
I was shocked to see you on a christian program but after watching I was very pleased that both of you treated each other with total respect which is very lacking at times in both beliefs (mostly with Christians unfortunately)
Caught you on the tube this AM. Good countenance and spirit, but seemingly lost in the intellect.
Thanks for the sentiment, but did you listen to anything we said on the show…?:
Praying for you:)
From seeing you on the show, you are a very sweet guy. However, if you ever find yourself in any kind of trouble, just remember to call out to Jesus. I know you don’t believe in Him, but I know He still loves and believes in you.
It is not my job to convert you to Christianity. That belongs to my Savior. My job is to just tell you about who He is and what He did for me and you. As an atheist, ?Is there still an emptiness within your soul that needs to filled? Think about this for a moment. There is only One that can fill that emptiness. He is ready to purchase your soul (even on eBay) if you let Him. Seek and you shall find Him. His name is Jesus Christ. I’??m not a smart person, I’??m not educated but I do know that true wisdom is to know and fear the Lord.
God is calling you Hemant. Will you listen and hear His voice?
My life research as a doctor, chemist, scientist, minister, and researcher as reveald the following:
1) Evolution: There is no evidence that proves that either creation or evolution occured. You have to have faith to believe in either one.
2) No person is intelligent enough to proove that God exists or does not exist. You have to have faith to believe either one.
Don’t worry my friend. You do not believe because God has not given you the gift of belief.
So don’??t be concerned my friend, God loves you, and will give you the gift of faith when He is ready too.
I watched the last 2 days on Life Today. I was quite confused because you seem like a great guy.
I am sure you don’t believe in Satan, But know that he is real, because I have gone through a period of spiritual warfare and Satan actually left a message on my answering machine.
Did you know that actually a bumble bee technically can’t fly with the way it’s body is made? Only a Creator could have done that. [Hemant's note: I responded by explaining how that is a myth and provided links that explain bumblebee flight mechanics]
I am not interested in exposing the logical consistency and thus veracity of Creationism over Darwinism, though sound ratiocination is something I tend to enjoy. In this acutely particular respect, I am disinterested in the conjectural theorizing of the likely/unlikely subliminal national-scale indoctrination of the admirably candid atheist society. Albeit, the comically presumed Constitutional citation of “??separation of Church and State” does stimulate me to dialectics, and, frankly, didactics, I have a sole end in specific dialogue.
I must thank Our Lord Jesus for you… Can i get to read your testimony?
And also can you spread the same kind of awareness in India or rather Asia. We need more and more people to accept Our Jesus. I dont know the way but i am sure your knee mail will work wonders.
I do appreciate the emails… really, I do. But I am having trouble understanding the mentality of those who send some of these letters. Do they think I’m going to convert as a result of their testimony? Do they think I’ve never heard their arguments before? Do they even want a response…?
