Default Thank You Ron

Ron Ė I wanted to take a moment to publicly thank you for the work you do. I read a lot of negative and very critical reviews of your work on Amazon and various blogs and Iím afraid many of those people are just plain ignorant and mean spirited. Not one of them has been able to provide any meaningful rebuttal to what youíve written. Iím reminded of the Gospel of John 15:18.

{15:18} If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before you.

I can only imagine the countless hours youíve spent writing your books and especially the CPDV of the bible youíve translated. I greatly value all your written works, along with your blog and this discussion forum, which have greatly enhanced my understanding of the faith. Not a day goes by that I donít check the discussion boards or review any new blog posts you may have written and Iím confident Iím not the only one. I'm proud to be a member of this forum and please do keep up this worthy endeavor.

Thanks again and may God bless you.

thanks for your words of encouragement and support

People who disagree with my views on one topic or another sometimes decide to condemn me and my work wholly, for that reason. They don't want teachers who will teach them something that is new to them, or (heaven forbid) correct a misunderstanding. People today want teachers who will tell them what they already think is true, or teach them some new triviality, that will not require anything of them.

grace and peace to seekers of truth in the world
