Un email la care a trebuit să răspund

Am primit un email și am simțit nevoia să-i răspund. Îmi cer scuze cititorilor mei care nu cunosc engleza, dar cred că pot încerca o traducere via google language tools.

Iată mesajul:

Greetings in Jesus name,



May this letter find you blessed in Christ. I am writing from West Africa
and it is a blessing getting to you in the other part of the world. It is
my prayer that you become a friend of me and the local church here. I got
your email when I searching online and got into the web site and I know
that it is God’s arrangement.



By His grace I am a Believer bought and washed by the Blood of Jesus
Christ. I am married with three children. I am a pastor of a small local
church non denominational or affiliated to anybody. The church was founded
in 2006 and now has about 30 members. I gave my life to Christ in 1987 when
I was still in the high school at Zaria. A campus fellowship student by
name Femi was my roommate at school and his life of faithfulness unto
Christ and his prayer and teaching me the Bible led me to Christ. This
Brother told me then that he sensed that God was going to use me for His
cause. I was never ready to hear that because my dream or thought was never
in the ministry but to finish my studies and get a nice job. Five years
after school and already working I started having the stronger urge and
sensing that God was calling me but I kept on putting it off my heart
because my job and life was sweet to me and I felt I needed nothing else.
One day a guest speaker was ministering in our church and he singled me out
in a crowd of over a thousand and told me that God has called me to the
ministry and cannot hide. After he left I told my pastor that I have
accepted and my pastor and other elders of the church prayed with me. I
immediately joined and headed the evangelical outreach of the church and I
saw many coming to Christ in the outreach. I let go of my job in 2005 and
returned to Edo my State. I joined a small local church and was assisting
the pastor as the second pastor. In January 13th 2007 a pastor of a little
church of about five families in my area walked up to me telling me that he
is leaving the state to his home state where the Lord has asked him to go
and start the work. He said he has been praying for over a month that the
Lord has asked him to tell me to take over the little church he founded
2006. I have not had relationship with this pastor before now so it amazed
me. He asked me to pray to ask the Lord. I did prayed and without wasting
time I knew the Lord ask me to hold that little church and that was how I
became the pastor of this church called Victory Chapel. The church is a
growing church and we meet at a temporary rented building. We are earthly
rich but rich in Christ, riches that will last for eternity.





2 Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that
needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”. The reason
why I am writing is to appeal for your assistance in the area of a Study
Bible which will be of help to me in my research and study of the bible as
well as lesson preparation as a pastor, and bibles for our aged members.
These items are very scarce here. I need The Dakes Annotated Reference
Bible. It is a very good study Bible for ministers of the gospel. Please
help me for it. There are many in our local church who do not have bibles
and cannot afford to buy. I want to specifically make a request for the
elderly ones who cannot work and earn money to buy for themselves. There
are 12 of such very old fathers and mothers in our church who read and
understand English and they are very devoted. Please on their behalf I
request that you send them 12 Bibles the very big letters which is the
super giant print 18 point type would be preferable for them because of
their sight. A pastor friend here got his from www.christianbook.com where
it was purchase for him by his cousin abroad. I checked the site and also
found it there. We would also appreciate used bibles provided the pages are
complete. Bibles are needed in King James Version, English. Thank you for
considering this request. And as you help to meet this kingdom need the
Lord will bless you finance abundantly. If you send the bibles through post
office a registered postage the bibles will get to us safely. I was told at
the post office that EMS postage or post office insured mail is safer and
without charge. My home and postal address is 238 Imasogiewa Road-Gpgo 5870,
Benin City, Edo State, 30001, Nigeria. Please write when you get my mail. I
do not have full access to internet but I can check at least three times
weekly. Ecclesiastes 11:1 "Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt
find it after many days"

Continue to be obedient and the Lord will honour you in His time. Exodus
19:5, the Lord spoke to the children of Israel through Moses saying: "Now
therefore, if you will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then you
shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is
mine:..." The Lord bless you and keep you in His perfect love.



In His Service,

Uwa Izenomikor

P.s, Please pray for the persecuted Christians attacked by Muslims in
Nigeria.

You don't have to pray to me, you can just ask :-) .

Sometimes the most astounding relationships can occur between men.

Dear Uwa, you are in luck! I happen to know of an annotated bible
myself, The Skeptics Annotated Bible, with all sorts of commentaries and
cross references. It is available at this address:

http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/

They also have a bookstore which lists carefuly chosen books and the
store prvides links to Amazon where you can order the books from!

For instance, there is this book:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/145366291X?ie=UTF8&tag=skepticsannotate&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=145366291X

and you can even get a signed copy from the author:

I just found this! It's King James Version with the commentary! There is
a CD you can use for your studies! All you need is a computer, which you
do, since you wrote this email to me, and you can invest in a projector
and, presto, you can start your bible study with just about a few
hundred bucks' worth of investment and 9,95$ for the CD itself!

I think this is a very good idea and I think already that you will be
pleased with my suggestion!

I think sponge bread eventually sinks or gets eaten by birds, fish and
animals, I don't think it lasts many days. Also it runs the risk of
disintegrating.

I personally like this part from Exodus:

"21:6 Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also
bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore
his ear through with an aul; and he shall serve him for ever.
21:7 And if a man sell his daughter to be a maidservant, she shall not
go out as the menservants do."

Din păcate, am uitat să-i spun două lucruri. Unu, că Jesus e un băiat din Mexic care repară mașini cu o pricepere nebănuită și, doi, să îi spun de păgânii persecutați de creștini, dar cred că o să îmi răspundă și o să continuăm discuția, deci o să am ocazia să mă revanșez.

Bravo, tocmai ai raspuns unei versiuni mai noi a "scrisorii nigeriene" :)

Zergu spunea...

Știu că e posibil să fie așa ceva, dar nu văd care e relevanța. Sunt curios dacă o să răspundă, mai ales că încă nu mi-e clar care ar putea fi unghiul prin care se face înșelătoria. Mai mult, dacă e înșelătorie, atunci discuția cu mine îi ia din timpul cu alții care chiar ar putea cădea în plasă.

Lucky Lady`s Charm spunea...

Haha nu imi vine sa cred ca ai raspuns lolz.. How very Christian-like...
Iti citesc blogul de ceva timp.. e sexy :D

May the Holy Hive bless all your lings..
