A recent e-mail

Several of us attended Gary Amirault's beautiful town of Hermann, Missouri.

The Lord gave us a beautiful snow the night before the memorial service, so
the town and the drive was extra pretty. But Hermann and the rest of the world
will never be the same without Gary and Michelle. HOWEVER, both Hermann
and the world are better places because of the way God used them both to
spread the message of His relentless love.

"Love Always Wins!" as Gary often stated. We will do everything we can to
continue Gary and Michelle's message.

Just so you will know, his daughter, Elena, has assured us that Tentmaker.org will
continue. There will be plans and funds to keep it up and running for MANY
decades!

Do you know Father loves you?

I'm so glad you were able to attend Gary's memorial. I had heard Mercy Aiken would be speaking there - she is such a beautiful soul. I'm also glad to hear that Elena intends to keep Tentmaker on-line because I have sent many people there who are searching for answers to their deepest questions about faith in Christ. Snow sounds lovely! The fields are white unto harvest . . .

Dear Rain: It was impossible for us to attend the memorial service for Gary. We did however hold him in our arms one week prior, for which I thank Abba with a grateful heart. There are people who come into our lives who reflect the Lord Jesus Christ, Gary & Michelle are two of them!

I don't know why people are so offended with the thought that ALL WILL BE SAVED and come to this Spiritual understanding that none shall remain lost; neither shall they perish, saving the man himself.

Dear Jerwade: there is within our species the deep down feeling we can earn our Father's love. How dare Abba allow dirty rotten scoundrels to be saved after all the "big" I have done? My God we are very broken indeed! Our God is not only saving the all, the process goes far beyond saved to reconciled & made one in Him. The Father & I are one declares our Saviour the perfect expression of the Glorious One.

The main reason seems to be because they are taught that being saved from sin means being saved from going to hell (eternal torment) after death. That is the most common gospel message taught in America and so the message that Christ will save all chafes against that belief that one has been rescued from eternal torment by "accepting" Christ. A lot of churches must have an "us" vs "them" mentality in order to feel that they belong to the "good" group of people. It turns into a "my team" vs "your team" and it creates an excuse to hate or condemn others who are not in your group. It's tribalism.
