I have worked as a registered nurse for 40-plus years and feel ashamed of some of the medical profession’s abandonment of standards in some of these areas, especially regarding the treatment of children.
—Keri Buckwalter / Lititz, Pa.
Reporting the current legal state of affairs of transgenderism is fine, but that is not why I read “Christian journalism.” Not one expert Christian voice was referenced in this article concerning the moral sin that transgenderism seeks to obscure and repudiate.
—Eugene Newman / West Bloomfield, Mich.
We now have a one-sided judicial system in our country. Thankfully, God is the Chief Justice, and that fact sustains me as our legal system is broken.
—Kathy Connors / Medina, Wash.
I tell my students in my middle school classes that God is not fair. If He was fair, we’d all go to hell. Instead, He graciously and mercifully elects some of us to receive salvation and enjoy His presence forever.
—Joshua Ausfahl / Bellingham, Wash.
I love WORLD and have read it for decades, though I’ve always been dismayed at the fact that theologically it seems to only give voice to Calvinists. I suggest exploring these questions further from some sources other than R.C. Sproul’s Chosen by God and your Calvinist friends.
—Daniel Plunkett / Kilauea, Hawaii
I am a faithful reader of WORLD Magazine and, though I am not Calvinist, I very much appreciate the Biblical scholarship and faithfulness reflected in your news stories. I especially love the opinions.
—Debbie Vickers / Brady, Texas
Lynn Vincent’s column was excellent and thought-provoking. The doctrine of election is difficult. Thank you for the reminder that God doesn’t care whether we think He’s fair. I just thank Him for saving me.
—John Marshall / Columbia, Mo.
Thank you for voicing the truth of one of Scripture’s most comforting yet misunderstood truths. Our Lord does indeed not need our approval of His sovereignty over the affairs of men.
—Gayle Colby / Fall River Mills, Calif.
Please follow up Vincent’s slam-dunk argument for Calvinism with an equally convincing argument for geocentricism. After all, many more verses in the Bible teach that the sun goes around an unmoving Earth than that God creates people to damn them.
—Chuck White / Spring Arbor, Mich.
Perhaps it isn’t God’s character that needs to be defended, but man’s character that should be better understood. Sola gratia.
—Bill Sheldrake / Indianapolis, Ind.
I agree with Janie B. Cheaney that responsibility for one’s feelings, choices, and growth is key to mental health. But I fear her column plays right into the narrative of those who still believe counseling and mental health services are intrinsically sinful and un-Christian.
—Marsha Epstein / Tacoma, Wash.
Your pundits from the April 22 issue are starting to sound like a bunch of old people reminiscing about the good old days when people just got on with it, emotions are all bad, and God’s biggest threat was from the communists. Can’t you find anyone who has something insightful to say about being a Christian in our current world?
—Sean Conroy / Dallas, Texas
