One true God

To the Editor:

How terribly sad Andleeb Ahmed's letter to the editor is.

It is Ahmed who is enveloped in a dark “cloud of myths;” myths that if Ahmed continues to believe, will not draw her or anyone else “closer to the one true God."

The one true God embodies truth and requires it of His followers. The truth is that Jesus did not fail the mission that God sent him to earth to accomplish. An honest reading of the Bible and the historic facts related to his crucifixion clearly reveal that Jesus did, in fact, die on the cross. He did not “survive the crucifixion.” He was dead.

The victory, which Christians just celebrated at Easter, is that Jesus did not stay dead.  He arose from the dead. He was supernaturally resurrected. He defeated death and proved that he is God.

It is belief in this fact that will draw all people, including those enveloped in clouds of myths, to the one true God.
