Dear Mr. McMahon,
I appreciate this website and the wealth of information that is provided here. However, with that said, I must state my displeasure with parts of your critique on the book, The Harbinger….It seems to be a deliberate attack on Mr. Cahn and a backhanded way of not only charging him with being theologically unsound but also incompetent as a writer. That is not what I come to this site for, I’m here to help sort out the wheat from the chaff. I wonder, if you had the opportunity to interview Mr. Cahn face to face, would you have made the same comments? It appears to me that your comments as I have outlined are totally out of line and unnecessary for the theological critique.

Yes, I have read the book, my take away is that Mr. Cahn is reminding the American people that judgment is coming, and I can agree with him. I have tried to advise those whom I work with that America is similar to the Titanic, an accident waiting to happen. It is only by God’s Grace that He hasn’t brought this nation to its knees for its/our/my sins.

I enjoy this site for its sound theological teaching—please leave the literary comments to someone else. KM (FL)

Dear TBC Staff,
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I was so blessed today to receive the precious gift of three books from you and simply could not be more grateful. I wish it was possible to adequately express what this means to me but please know I truly am very thankful. It is such a privilege to be able to get the TBC newsletter each month and to now enjoy these books that are unavailable here is a special treat. I will continue to hold all of you in my prayers and share TBC where I can. Please continue the good work you’ve all been called to do—the glorious impact cannot be understated. Thank you again!

Dear Friends,
Great article in your [February] issue. I was raised in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Germany. When my parents immigrated to the U.S….and attended one of the local Lutheran Churches…I was shocked by the strong similarity to the Roman Catholic churches in Germany; thus my search for the truth began.

For about a year I studied to become a JW. However, an older Christian man in fellowship in one of the brethren assemblies witnessed to me, making the things of Christ real to me and discipling me without me realizing it.

I had a (proverbial) nail that I held onto—John:1:1-3. Over the years…I have found many new scriptural evidences of the deity of Christ in the Bible, many of which you cite in your excellent article….I continue in fellowship with those who meet in Christian simplicity, give the Lord Jesus Christ the pre-eminent place, and endeavor to teach and practice what the Bible plainly teaches—“Thy word is truth.” WK (NJ)

Dear Friends,
Words can’t express how much you’ve contributed to opening my eyes and ears to see and hear the wonderful truths God gives us in His Word. I’m praying for all of you that the Lord will continue to give you a faithful heart and bless all of your work for Him. NP (MS)

Hello T. A.,
I am so grateful for your review of The Harbinger! A dear, sincere Christian friend asked me to listen to The 700 Club (of course all the alarms went off then) to an interview Pat Robertson (more alarms going off) did with the author of that book. I listened, and got ill.

When I was first led to our Lord 33 years ago, I started doing a great deal of research on the Masons, as many of my dearest family members were part of it. I knew as soon as I was saved, that something was really wrong. I have known about George Washington dedicating our first capital city of New York to his god, and there is a famous painting of Washington in his Masonic regalia during this event.

Christians are so naive, and it is sad and scary….I fear for the spiritual naiveté of the church at large. I also fear that Christians know too little about this country’s history. So many just assume that we are and always have been “a Christian nation.” Where is the discernment? Where is the teaching by the pastors, who also are so often ignorant of what the foundation of this nation is all about?...I am saving this article you wrote, and hopefully can share some of it with my friend.

Mr. Hunt,
I just want to say thank you for your obedience to the Lord and His word by serving Him the way you have been throughout all these years. I and a few friends have benefited from your teachings on yoga, new age and just recently the DVD, Israel, Islam, and Armageddon. If it were the Lord’s will, by the help of His Spirit, I would love to start a Bible study on biblical prophecies. Many churches do not teach prophecies in light of understanding the times we live in (history, religion, politics, economy, humanism, etc.). Sadly, to many, the word of God is compartmentalized and not seen as a whole to study it, understand it, know it, and use discernment to understand the Christian world view. May the Lord continue to bless you in all areas of your life so you continue to live an abundant, richly blessed life and be equipped for all good works, and so you will continue to be a blessing to many. Amen. SP (email)

Dear Dave,
I just want to thank you for bringing me out of atheism in 1987 at the age of 20. My life would be completely different right now if God had not used you to reach me back then. I continue to read my Bible diligently each and every day so that I can provide the answers to people on the hope that is in me. I have every single video and audio lecture that was ever released by TBC since 1987 and they have all helped me to stay clear of all the false teachings—right from the start of my Christian walk with the Lord. At the point I was at in 1987 no regular preacher type would have ever reached me. So thanks again for leading me into a reasonable faith by causing me to question my belief system. You have been greatly used by Jesus and I will for the rest of my life continue to share your lectures and books with everyone open to receive them. I just ordered all ten years of radio shows and will be listening to it and reading the Bible every day for years to come….So be encouraged in knowing that the Lord has used you to tremendously impact peoples lives and will continue to do so until the Lord returns.

Dear Folks at The Berean Call,
I just had to write to you and let you know that “I’m back!” After a hiatus of some months, I am recommitting to supporting your ministry….For a long time I had been burdened with the feeling that I should be supporting a local church….The problem was, I didn’t belong to a local church….By what seemed at first a providential turn of circumstances, last year I became aware of a small congregation a few towns over from where I live. [They] seemed to embrace a real biblical outlook and leaning, and so…I began attending services there….Unfortunately, just a few short weeks after I had begun attending, the congregation held a special service…in a neighboring town. When they handed out the bulletins for the morning’s program, there was an insert entitled “Lectio Divina.” I knew that…you folks at TBC had written about and warned against [it]. I scanned the brochure quickly…and there were enough “buzz words” in it for me to realize that this was not something that I wanted any part of….It’s come home to me clearer than ever of how important your ministry is…in these dangerous times….

Dear Dave, T. A., and TBC Staff,
I wanted to drop you a note just to thank you for your past and ongoing ministry. I first heard Dave speak at a prophecy conference in Minnesota in 1995. I have always had a passion for prophecy and a strong desire for the Lord’s return. I very much appreciated Dave’s insight and presentation of the Scriptures regarding these matters. From that time on I would take every opportunity to hear Dave or T. A. speak whenever they were in our area. I also have read most of their books from which I have learned much.

In 2002, I helped start a church in Minnesota (north of Minneapolis). Since many of our congregation [were] regular readers of the The Berean Call it was only natural that we named the church, Berean Christian Fellowship. This year we are celebrating our 10-year anniversary. The Lord has blessed and preserved us in more ways than I can recount….

I know Christ is our foundation and you are only his vessels but I wanted to thank you for your service to Him. You have been used by Christ to help nurture and encourage us in our walk of faith. Some plant the seed and others water, but God makes our faith grow. SM (MN)

To The Berean Call,
I know there are numerous people who have been helped and blessed by Dave’s ministry. He has faithfully declared God’s Word and kept us from many hurts and false teachings. He has literally spent himself and new he needs our prayers and support.

Would all of you who have been blessed by his ministry join me and take a few minutes and ask God to bless him and his devoted wife Ruth and pour down showers of blessings upon them?

If I know my Heavenly Father, He will be moved with compassion, and bless them…. JW (KY)

Dear Tom,
Thanks so much for your newsletter article, “Roman Catholics: The Neighborhood Mission Field.” Having been delivered from that darkness after 34 years, I share your zeal for telling the truth to the mission field of 1 billion—including nearly 100 members of my immediate family! However, it took years for me to find ministries who would stand up for the truth about RCC, and I found some good ones in Proclaiming the Gospel and Grace to You. Few “seasoned” or mature believers understand RCC, and I am not received well in most instances when I speak the truth about RCC. But life is not a popularity contest, and I am in it now for my Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thanks for standing firm on the Truth! CH (TX)

Dear Dave and T. A.,
Words cannot express our gratitude to you both for ever keeping a watchful, discerning eye on God’s truth AS IT IS WRITTEN. Thank you for your faithfulness in addressing current issues as some church leaders are either misinformed or too timid to stand fully on God’s Word. Keep sounding the trumpet of warning. Keep on being “the watchmen” at the gate….We know He shall ever bless and keep you in His care. C&JA (OR)

T. A. and Dave,
What a marvelous newsletter! Can’t imagine not getting it. It’s informative and educational. You keep your readers up-to-date on happenings and books in the religious world. It’s good to be informed in these last days—any days, really. May God bless your efforts mightily. A&SP (MO)
