Greetings from the Philippines. I thank God for this wonderful ministry that God has entrusted to you. I came across your site a few weeks ago looking for information on the feast of tabernacles, and found it enormously helpful not only in that, but the eschatology page was eye opening. You can understand that because I come from a premillenial background. It seems I've been misled.
Thank you so much,

To whom it may concern,
My guess is that this feedback will never make it to post, but I would like to say a few things anyway. First, Dispensationalism is an accepted teaching of the church, and even those that don't hold to it accept it as a "legitimate" interpretation, which should not divide the church.
Second, "In essentials Unity, in non-essentials Liberty, in all things Charity." Eschatology is not an essential. Your condemnation of dispensationalism is uncharitable and shows a bias against Israel. Maybe even anti-semitic.
Last, but not least, the literal interpretation of scripture is the only correct interpretation. Reformed spiritualizing makes your reformed eschatology iligitimate, and thus a false interpretation. I ask your repentance and an end to denying the lawful dispensational view.

Dear Tony. I've been searching hard for the truth of the Scriptures and have just finished your sermon on Amillianism. I need furthur instruction on the binding of Satan. If he has been bound for all these years since Christ died , why does Scripture tell us to put on the whole armor of God,etc,etc.!st. Th.2:18 "but Satan hindered us".
2nd.Co2:11...."Saatan should get advantage of us"
1st.Co. 7:5 ...that Satan tempt you not for your ".....It seems these Scriptures tell us that Satan is not bound .Please help, as I'm honestly looking for the truth and also a church that teaches something other than dispensationalism. Thank you for your help.

I just want to tell you how much I appreciate your site! I have been surfing the websites of reformed christians today and think yours stands out as the more people friendly, evangelical, and down to earth rather than up in the clouds version. Your eschatology section is the best on the web. This site is a real soul winning tool as well as a wonderful way to learn about doctrines which are difficult to sort out. So please accept my thanks.

Dear Mountain Retreat Staff:
I am a parent currently in a heated debate with my daughter over tattoos. I did a search on Google and came to your most welcomed article.
"Thank You" for being an oasis in the middle of a desert. Because everyone is telling me that there is nothing wrong with tattooing their bodies or piecing tongues and noses. Your article was so refreshing. I was especially joyed by your point on how we are to be different and set apart from the world. I have printed this article out to give to my daughter in hopes that she might be moved to see we are two different kingdoms. She says she is Christian so maybe God will work in her to show her the worldliness in this. I just don't understand christianity needing to identify with and follow fads. I'm just grateful for your encouraging words.
Please pray for her.

I take issue with your statements that Roman Catholics, Mormons, Oneness Pentecostals, and Jehovah's Witnesses all hold to unbiblical doctrines outside of the Church. Where is the proof of this in scripture? Neither can it be proven from scripture that denial of the Trinity is a heresy. So though you say these things, you should be careful what you preach. Because it is not at all in line with a good christian love of all people, nor do these ideas foster good inter Church relations. We all have to make compromises so that we leave no one behind. Please think about this.

I write as a "one point Calvinist";
believing the other 'four points' are logical extensions of the first.
I heartily agree with your statement of faith. Yet, allow me to make this observation. The Church in general, and Reformed believers in particular need to become Trinitarian in practice.
We affirm, conceptually, and rightly so, the Trinity. However, in daily life the Third person of the Spirit is 'underdeveloped' in our relationship with Him.
I know nothing about you (forgive my ignorance).
I am grateful for what I believe will be a stimulating addition to my net resources.
Grace and peace

Thank You, Thank You !!!!
I have been looking for a few answers to some Catholic questions for my husband who was raised Catholic and is now considering joining a Baptist church with me - this site has given so much to me! I can not thank you enough! I also was able to learn some things that I have often wandered about! I can't wait to share your pages with my husband and my church family!
May God Bless You in all your needs
In Christ My Friend,

I was extatic to come across The Mountain Retreat! As a Pentecostal-Charismatic minister converted to the Reformed-Evangelical, I highly appreciate the information you made available to the general public.
And may God use this resource to enlighten my Pentecostal-Charismatic brethren as to the truth of Scripture.
Thanks and God bless!

Great website. Thanks for holding tight the traditions of the Reforemed Church.
Your site is a breath of fresh, conservative air, in the midst of the liberal pollution that is so prevelent today.
As an accountant I especially enjoyed T. Warren's article: "The Numbers in Scriptures! (Do they carry any Spiritual Significance?). Great work. I have always believed that they (numbers) are significant. And I appreciated Tony's balnced, and sriptuarally-oriented approach.
God's richest blessings upon you and your ministry!
