A Christian Response
Letters from Walter VanRaden (my father)
January 17, 1989
Hey - I think you guys have had more winter than we have so far...
Over Christmas I was thinking what it might be like to be an atheist at Christmas. Not much reason to celebrate. The greatest thing that ever happened and youíre not in on it. Remember, God is still there and will welcome you back. Donít wait til its too late.
Well see you later, so long for now

Got your letter and article [The Right To Migrate]... Thatís quite an article. You sure thought it out from every direction.
My own thought is that it wonít happen, though - - - partly because those who have donít really want to share and if we do have a ďone world governmentĒ it would be only very briefly before Jesus comes again. Speaking of Jesus coming again - you should get ready for that. Atheists will not be in a good position then...
Iíve been reading every spare minute that I have. I ordered 3 books - one on evolution, one on creation and one on Noahís flood. Lots of technical stuff and pretty slow reading, but its all so interesting that I hardly ever get sleepy reading. I learned that the origin of species / evolution deal was not put together by anthropologists or geologists, but rather by a group of atheists who decided they needed some story of origins that would bypass God. There is no valid scientific proof for evolution - it is just the same as a belief in God or a belief in Buddha. Much of the reasoning and the ďproofsĒ are absurd compared with the facts of creation...
See you - Dad

HAPPY NEW YEAR! ... I think New Years would be a great time for you to give up the atheist idea. You have experimented with it a few years now and you have proved how patient God is - He hasnít lowered the boom on you. You know whatís right so you donít have to be re-educated - just straighten out your beliefs. With all the stuff going on - like the war about to start in the middle east - atheism being taught in school - a million and a half unborn babies killed every year just in the USA - all these are indications that Jesus is coming soon. This time he wonít come as a baby - he will come as the judge, and I want you to be on my side. Think it over. Your decision determines where you will be for all the millions of years of eternity. I want to see you there.

You might think old Dad is over the edge but Iím going to tell you again: the time is getting short. Jesus is coming again soon. Its time to ditch the atheist business. Thereís only one way to life and that is thru the death and ressurection of Jesus. Soon the time will be up when you can still change your mind. Some day EVERY knee will bow to Jesus - some with Joy and some in tears. Take your choice.
Think it over, Paul

Well, I donít think it will be very long now Ďtil Jesus comes for his people. If you are determined not to be one of them, you will really have a big decision to make after that. When all the Christians are gone, you will know that Jesus was telling the truth that he will come in another 7 or 8 years as the judge. You could still become a Christian then but that would be turning traitor to your friend the devil and since he will be in charge for that 7 or 8 years, being a Christian will be really rough. You do know the truth because thatís what you were taught the first twenty years of your life. God did make people with the ability and the right to decide for themselves. Its still sad that, using my own kids as an example, even when they know the truth, only half will follow it. Its no wonder the world is going to heck. ...
Well, I have to write 2 more of these. Iíve written them before, too but nobody even bothers to answer. I guess they think Dad is out of it. Well, I've taught you and Iíve warned you. What you do about it is up to you. I pray every day that you will make the right decision. So long for now.

Got your letter with another chapter for the book [The Right To Migrate]... Iím afraid that if you go into the immigration project full time it might be so frustrating when other people wonít listen to you or agree with you that it might get the best of you.
One more peice of advice. Good scientists who are honest are abandoning the evolution idea. The only real sensible alternative is to believe that God created everything. They donít want to do that, either so they say that some sort of space ship must have brought life here from some other planet somewhere. You and I both know the correct answer... Well, see you later. Hang in there
