You should warn people about 'the last days'

Dear Pastor,

I hope all is well with you. In spite of the fact that you are a people person, especially on the air, it baffles me as to how you are a pastor and also giving advice and you know of the perilous times we are now living in.

As a matter of fact, things written in the Bible are actually starting to unfold in front of our very eyes. I'm disappointed that you haven't dedicated at least one show to God and the consequences of not knowing God in these last days.

You are a pastor, and some of the topics you choose are not stimulating people's mind about God. Come on, Pastor. The homosexual plague is now in Jamaica.

You need to use your God-given talent to warn people that if they don't know God, there will be consequences. May God, continue to bless you, sir.

Dear K.,

You believe that it is necessary for you to warn me and to express your disgust at my dereliction of duty as a pastor. I would remind you, and others who think like you, that although I am a pastor, I am a family counsellor and I am not here to stir up religious controversies, especially when it comes to eschatology (the study of end-time events) such as what you are talking about.

These things are controversial matters. They are divisive and often cause unnecessary arguments. People like you believe that they know how to interpret and apply certain scripture, when in fact, they know nothing. My primary purpose is to deal with family life in all its aspects.

For example, you believe that the things that are happening in the world today are the fulfilment of scripture and that they mean that the coming of the Lord Jesus is at hand.

Whether you know it or not, you can't prove that. And for centuries, some preachers have made a lot of money preaching these things. I refuse to be numbered among them.

I don't condemn you for what you believe even if you feel it is your duty to condemn me.

Pastor
