Dear Lighthouse Trails:
I am so disappointed in our church’s using The Message in place of God’s Word; I am desiring to received your booklet warning about The Message by John Lanagan (The Message Bible: A Breach of Truth). I have read it and checked out The Message from our church library and found it to be a great difference from the Holy Bible.
I am 87 years old and have been a Christian for many years. I have been a Bible club teacher and taught many times verses from the Bible. There is no way one can learn truth from The Message – impossible . . . and we are to “hide God’s Word in our hearts.”
Please send me several of your booklets by Mr. Lanagan, and I will give them to church staff and others like my present class teachers.
Sincerely in Christ,
