Dear Dave and the rest at TBC,

After reading Dave’s book Debating Calvinism, I realized that this is a pretty serious issue. I was comforted when I was going through the book of Genesis and noticed in chapter 24, verse 57-58: “And they said, We will call the damsel, and enquire at her mouth. And they called Rebekah, and said unto her, Wilt thou go with this man? And she said, I will go.” It’s interesting to know that Rebekah was given the choice to be the bride of Isaac as she said, “I will go.” It was not the choice of her brother or mother but the choice of Rebekah. It was her consent; it was her decision. So it is with us: we are called, but it comes down to the fact that it is our decision whether or not to go. It is our decision whether or not to become the bride of Christ. DH (MN)

Dear Friends,

I want you to know that I appreciate the stand you take on many doctrinal issues in this era of compromise. I read and enjoy your articles. I feel, however, that in your comments in [the TBC Notes] article, “The Times They Are a’Changin’,” you give up too easily. There are still good churches in America. Isaiah calls them “streams in the desert.” There are churches sending missionaries to the uttermost part of the earth. There are churches where the gospel is presented clearly, powerfully, and frequently. There are churches with a Spirit-filled preacher who reproves, rebukes, and exhorts his people. I know of a good church in Alabama. I know of good churches in Arkansas, California, Oklahoma, and Washington, D.C. I’m sure there are others. Just because there is not a good church in your neighborhood, don’t give up….You may have to drive some distance. God will provide. You may even have to move….You won’t regret it. AN (AL)


After reading the latest newsletter, I am even more convinced that Dave Hunt is a modern day Pharisee. KW (email)

Dear TBC,

It is overdue that I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your relentless, courageous stand for God’s truth. I have received your newsletters for many years now without being charged a penny. Dave, you are a very faithful servant! You have been a tremendous source of strength and clarity for me when false doctrines seemed so enticing and believable. Please stay strong and continue on. All of Christendom desperately needs you and your work! JV (email)

The Berean Call,

Who gave you the right to say all these negative things about all these pastors? Where did this “mandate” come from? My God says we are not to judge but pray. You, on the other hand, continue in your judging of not one but most. I will pray your eyes be opened to this. In the meantime, remove me from your paper a.s.a.p. SB (FL)

Dear The Berean Call,

I was just given what T.A. McMahon wrote on “The Purpose Driven Life: a Critique.” Praise the Lord for your insight into this material. Your information was excellent. RB (NY)

Dear Mr. Hunt,

You know this as much as I do, that our fight is not so much with those outside the church as nonbelievers ( 2 Peter:2:1-4). I’m in prison in Texas, but I’m freer now than I ever was outside without Him. I got your name from the back of one of your books….
I received [my] first issue [of TBC] last December. I cried my heart out to God, thanking Him for such a wonderful gift. I’m telling you now, your words are a gift from God and I cherish your newsletters and, when I can find one, your books. It’s my re-birth date today. I’m five new years old. From atheist to Christ—hallelujah! DL (prisoner, TX)

Dear Friends,

Just want to commend Brother Hunt on the article “It Had To Be,” July 2005. It is truly a “must-read.” God is so good. Thanks again for getting the message out. SR (AR)

Dear Brother Dave,

I will keep this short. My husband recently purchased your wonderful book, What Love Is This? I never have been a Calvinist. My husband didn’t want to be one. He felt bound up by it and repelled by Calvin’s idea of God. Your book has set my husband free from this abhorrent doctrine. He has also been able to debate Calvinism with several friends, two of which have abandoned this heresy themselves. GO (Ireland)
