Question (representative of several): In reading your December 1998 Q&A, I wonder how you can call Bill Bright your friend and how you can “walk together” (Amos:3:3). A little leaven can be destructive, according to Galatians:5:9. I’m praying for you.
Response: I don’t understand why you fault me for calling Bill Bright my friend. Jesus was a “friend of publicans and sinners” (Mt 11:19) and He addressed Judas at the moment of betrayal as “friend” (Mt 26:50). That we don’t “walk together,” as you say we do, ought to be obvious. Nor can I see how you can apply “a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump,” considering my clear and repeated public opposition to the ecumenism and errors of Bright, Graham, et al. That mystifies and saddens me. But I do appreciate your prayers.
