Thank you for your letter in response to our article, Compromise and Cowardice in an Age of Deceit.
It appears that you could not have really read the article if you call the message “emerging from a point of ignorance.” Anyone reading the article would see that it was not “personal self-centred views,” as you call it, but Bible-based and Christ-centered.
Your advice to “stick with the Word and pray” misses the point that the article is saturated with Scripture and seeks to apply the Lordship of Christ to all areas of life.
You have an address which seems to indicate that you are a student, or maybe a lecturer, at WITS University. Knowing how politicised and radicalised universities such as WITS have become, you must question how much your perception has been affected by that.
I am not sure why you bring in the kinds of insulting terminology that you do, including “make no single cognisance of the Word of God” when the article is so plainly beginning in Scripture, centered in Scripture and ending with many Scriptures. Did you perhaps get confused and are you referring to some other article?
You attribute to me “political motives,” which indicates that you can know nothing at all about me. I am a Missionary, who, for over 40 years had dedicated his life to fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. I have ministered in 38 countries, conducted over 20,000 meetings and services, worked in some of the most Restricted Access Areas, serving suffering Christians being persecuted in some of the most remote and difficult to reach parts of Africa, including the Nuba Mountains of Sudan.
Do you really believe that if the prophet Elijah, John the Baptist, any of the Apostles, or our Lord Jesus Christ, were here, physically with us today, that they would not speak directly to the sins in our own hearts, lives, minds and society?
God resists the proud, but He gives grace to the humble.
Yours for the fulfilment of the Great Commission
Dr. Peter Hammond
