My Friend, I wrote my apology to set things straight with U No -- not to put you down in any way. What I wrote is the truth. For a long time, I often confused what you wrote and what U No wrote -- and, wrongly attributed to her your statement about being a Wiccan Christian.
I don't know if it was you or not -- but, several years ago I had a running dialogue with a lady on the Religion Forum who assured us that she was a Wiccan Christian -- and she was serious. She told us about their coven meetings, their rituals, etc. -- and continued to claim she was Christian.
I suppose that when you chose to make the same claim last year, I thought you were her. And, I thought we were just picking up our past dialogue. It would appear that you are not that lady -- for you tell us you are not a Christian; while she continued to claim she was a Christian.
B, I was wrong to attribute the New Age religion you claimed to U No. It would have been just as wrong to have confused her with a Roman Catholic, or any other belief -- for that is not her. In doing this, I, in no way, said you are a bad person. What I have said, and I will stand by it -- is that any and all New Age religions are wrong. They are not Christian.
So, before, when you claimed to be a Wiccan Christian, I called you on it. You later told us you were only kidding. Okay, I can buy that. But, I still am concerned that you tell us you are NOT a Christian believer. Does this make you a bad person? No. But, unless you change your direction and begin to follow Jesus Christ -- you do not have eternal life in Christ.
Why is this so important? Well, if you are a Christ Follower, you will spend eternity in the presence of God. If you choose to not be a Christ Follower, you will spend eternity NOT in the presence of God. If one is not in the presence of God in heaven -- there is only one other possible eternal destination. And, you and I both know that is hell.
So, B, it is not a matter of whether you are a good person or a bad person. It is only a matter of whether you are a saved person or an unsaved person.
You tell us you are not a Christian at this time. I pray that you will choose to change that. I sincerely would like to meet you in heaven one day. Then, you, U No, and I can laugh about this for eternity.
God bless, have a wonderful, blessed day,
