Dear Berean Call,

I purchased the book Showtime for the Sheep? It was thought provoking, to say the least....The book is well done and not mean-spirited at all...it is a fair and balanced book. I have...not been so quick to just follow this mass entrance into the soft mindset that seems to prevail so much today among Christians. Thanks for your ministry. It has helped me already. (email)

Dave Hunt,

It is a comfort to know that in a fast-paced world where Truth is mistaken for a host of lies, "In the beginning was the Word." This is the Word that remains. It is also a comfort to hear a voice of Truth and clarity speak out against a corrupt and relative worldview, especially in the church. For that, I must thank you with all my heart, Mr. Hunt.

Dear Friends,

Thanks for the email update revealing Rick Warren's misapplication of Scripture: "I'm saying some people are going to have to die or leave. Moses had to wander around the desert for 40 years while God killed off a million people before he let them go into the Promised Land. That may be brutally blunt, but it's true. There may be people in your church who love God sincerely, but who will never, ever change" (Rick Warren's Ministry Toolbox , No 263, 6/14/06). It explains something that has mystified me. I couldn't believe the way the pastor of the church we were attending...seemed to become deliberately contentious and openly dismissive if we questioned their reliance on things like psychology, The Message , The Purpose-Driven Life , etc., rather than Scripture...as if they were actively trying to drive us away rather than "waste" time defending their positions from Scripture....Thank goodness there are still some, like you guys, who teach it straight!

Dear Dave and TA,

I receive your newsletters monthly and cannot wait to read them. The modern-day churches seem to be falling more and more into apostasy. But you guys at The Berean Call are focused, relying on God's Word, the Holy Spirit, and, of course, Jesus, as our source of all truth. We as Christians should not rely on worldly methods to share the gospel. Our churches don't feel the same way....Sadly, we're in the "Falling Away," as the Apostle Paul said would happen in the latter days. Fight the good fight till Christ comes. DN (TX)

Dear Saints,

I really enjoyed your newsletters [Mar/Apr '06] about psychology in Christianity. It's hard to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and the coming Kingdom inside these [prison] walls because most "professed Christians" in here believe they can do or act any way they want as long as they "believe" in Jesus....All I can do is pray for them and let them know Jesus is coming soon.

Dear Mr. Hunt and Mr. McMahon,

Thank you for the biblical perspective you provide on so many of our cultural, political, and media issues. I feel so much more informed on the truth of the upside-down, turned-around, and blatantly sinful activities, attitudes, and opinions of our current cultural norm. DG (CA)

The Berean Call,

I have been receiving The Berean Call for several months now. Although I think that what you are doing is meritorious, I would like to end my subscription. The articles, although informative and accurate, are somewhat repetitive and negative in content. Your publication is beneficial in pointing out the errors of some of the false teachings that are prevalent today, while my desire is to learn more about what the Bible actually says. Needless to say, I agree with your point of view that people need to be more diligent when it comes to what they believe and who they listen to. With so many false teachings prevalent in society today, everyone needs to apply themselves wholeheartedly to studying the Scriptures to ensure that what they are hearing is in accordance to God's Word.
