Having just moved to Dayton, and as a new subscriber to the Walla Walla Union-Bulletin, I was stunned when I saw a letter to the editor (Jan. 5) from Thomas H. Reed.
I suspect this is the Thomas Reed who once lived in Kettle Falls. Reed’s letters, always dripping with sarcasm, ridicule and contempt, were well-known from Colville to Spokane.
Reed has embraced the theory of evolution, a bankrupt religion that promises its poor blind followers just one thing: Eternal death! We all want to sign up for that, right?
Is Mr. Reed aware that the tenets of evolution are being disproved on almost a daily basis? I’ve just read an excellent book titled “Evolution vs. Science.” As the title suggests, evolution is no longer considered to be science.
The Bible actually deals very briefly with scoffers, atheists and theory of evolution spokespersons and pseudo-intellectuals. Psalms 14:1 says “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.” I Corinthians 3:19 reads, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.”
There is no eternally burning hell. Those who believe there is such a thing have misinterpreted Scripture.
No loving Creator would ever approve of eternal torment. The idea of an eternally burning hell was actually introduced to the church, many hundreds of years ago, by pagan elements.
An excellent documentary, based on a true story, called “Hell and Mr. Fudge,” is available at the ABC bookstore in College Place. The documentary shows, clearly, that an eternally burning hell is as fictional as is the theory of evolution.
