To Dr. Deborah Frisch,
Thank you for welcoming me to the Gerbil Nation, though I must say it's odd to say I just "joined," as I have been reading DHD and the Wheel since last July, and I wasn't aware one "joined" a public, non-passworded website. I also wasn't aware that you held the Nation in such regard, but I'm happy to see you take pleasure in seeing it grow. I am also not sure why you choose to highlight me in this way, but don't mind in the least - in fact, when you linked to my "Schedule" page instead of the main one, I noticed I had not updated it in quite some time, thank you!
Now, this site was set up to ask you to apologize for some very bad things you have said and done to others. Since you have only welcomed me in writing, and not done some of the things to me you have done to others, I do not think an apology to me is indicated. However, I do appreciate Sinner giving me the chance to address something far more important that I do feel you need to apologize for, turning your back to and cursing in the most vile ways the one who loves you more than you could ever know or understand, God.
I can only imagine what your real life must be like, but He knows what pain you are in and what pains you have gone through. He knows what you are doing, what you have done, what you will do tomorrow, He knows all the curses you have sent His way and all the many ways you have sinned, yet He still loves you. He also knows what demons are running through you, and knows that somewhere, deep inside, you would give anything to be rid of them and be able to live a quiet, productive life, surrounded by friends and those who love you, not for what you can do for them or give them, but for who you have become.
You can have this life, all you need do is apologize to God. Tell Him you are sorry for what you have done, you don't need to elaborate, He already knows it all. Tell Him you want to be rid of these demons, that you want a new life, a new beginning, a second chance. He is the God of second chances and lost cases, and will listen to you. Tell Him you want the peace He can give you, and that you are willing to give him your pain, your suffering, and all the things that have led you to this point in exchange for it. He will think that is a great exchange, and will do so immediately.
His own words confirm this:
John 3:16 ¶ “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:17 “For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
Here is another website that lays out what is called the "Roman Road" to salvation: http://contenderministries.org/romanroad.php
If you need more information or help to find and know God, and don't know someone local to turn to, just email me.
In the beautiful name of Jesus Christ, may you find joy and peace in this world.
John the Baptist
