I realize there are many that are essentially ignorant of the belief systems of others, and many as well that do not respect the right of others to choose what they wish to believe. However, I am not one of those.
While I do not agree with your beliefs or philosophies, I do respect your right to choose what you wish to believe and base your life upon. I believe that right of choice is the only thing I truly sovereignly possess, so it is of infinite value to me.
As a Christian, I would take the opportunity to share my faith with others when appropriate, however, what a person chooses to do when they hear is their responsibility. I am not responsible for their choices, nor will I take that responsibility upon myself.
In other words (assuming you understand that I believe there is a choice of two literal eventual eternal destinations of the human spirit, which we commonly refer to as Heaven and Hell), if a person chooses to go to Hell, that is their choice. If I can't change it, why should I worry about it? That may seem to be a harsh attitude, but it is one that I believe is right. My responsibility is only the "telling", not the "changing".
That is probably not what you expected to hear from the President of a Christian ministry organization. I would like to see everyone believe as I do, for their own best interests, but I know everyone will not.
Therefore, we will be available to help anyone we can help, but we will not impose ourselves upon those who do not want our help. We respect their choices.
We do agree, as you said above, that each person bears the consequences of their choices, whether good or bad, right or wrong. (I also understand that Atheists are not Satanists.)
As to who may have referred you, some people see it as being "evangelistic" to refer those of different beliefs to our service. I feel sure they had your interests at heart, but please forgive them for the inconvenience, and we will remove your e-mail address from our distribution list.
Thanks again for writing. I appreciate your response and the manner in which you shared it.
