I recently received an email from someone, and I've taken the liberty of reproducing the exchange below. And yes, my spell checker really is broken (I'm running Arch Linux, that bleeding-edge Slackware fork).

PRAISE LORD!!
I WILL GET RIGHT TO THE POINT
MY FAMILY AND MYSELF ARE TRAVILING TO HAITI
I AM LOOKING FOR A CHURCH THAT KNOWS ABOUT ACTS 2 :28 ONE GOD PREACHING THE TRUE SALVATION IF YOU CAN HELP ME OUT THAT WOULD BE GREAT WE WILL BE IN JEREMIE THE FIRST OF JULY MY HUSBAND DRILLS WATER WELLS FOR THEM




Hi.

I think there is something wring with your computer keyboard --- it seems to only be able to type in capital letters. You might consider getting that fixed, it's rather annoying to have to read what you type like that.

Acts 2:28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

I think most churches know and believe that verse.

Good luck.



I DIDN'T KNOW IT WOULD MATTER HOW I TYPED
THAT WAS THE WRONG VERSE I WAS WANTING TO KNOW ABOUT
BUT THAT'S OK YOU ANSWERED MY QUESTION WITH YOUR RESPONSE WITH MY TYPING
I HOPE GOD DON'T THINK THE WAY YOU DO OR WE ARE ALL IN TROUBLE
AND CAN YOU PLEASE LEARN TO SPELL (WRING)




Ok, let's do this without anymore sarcasm on my part.

First, typing in all caps is considered shouting and it's rude. You want to shout at me? Fine, but I reserve the right to be rude in kind.

Second, I knew what verse you were referring to (Acts 2.38), because of your arrogant statment about the your doctrine and message being the only true salvation. You and I (along with everyone in your church) both know that your doctrine is considered cultic by the rest of christendom.

Modalism is a false view of God, and your claim that your doctrine reveals the only true way to be saved implies that since I am one Oneness (note: another typo... I meant to say not Oneness), I am not saved. Therefore, why are you wasting your time talking to someone who supposedly believes a false gospel?

Honestly, drop the nonesense and approach other believers in humility. If you had said something like, "Brother Kelly, we are UPC (or whatever), but we're trying to do something for God in Jeremie, will you help us?", I would have graciously done all I could to assist you (I know several Haitians from that area who would probably feel as I do, and would recommend you to any pastors they might know there).

Oh, and my spell checker is broken. I need to proofread more closely. Thanks for pointing out my speling mistaek.

--Joey
