Subject: Errors of Dispensationalism?
Name: Lori Wesner
City: Palain City, Ohio
To The Mountain Retreat,
I reject all these teachings on your site about the non validity of Dispensationalism. Dispensationalism is a doctrine held by most Christians. You misunderstand Dispensations, which is only a period of time during which man is tested in respect of obedience to some specific revelation of the will of God. Surely you Predestinationalists don't reject that. If Dispensationalism is false, it must be determined on scriptural grounds, not by Reformed and Puritan authorship.
And furthermore, if Dispensationalism is without merit scripturally, then so is Premillennialism. Because Premillennialism and Dispensationalism are akin. Surely you are not saying the Premillennial Church is in error also?

I just read your piece at http://www.mountainretreatorg.net/bible/faithof.html and I am very pleased indeed.
I have over the last 5 years been listening to the KJV NT over and over on mp3 and been very aware that my beliefs and doctrines are vastly different to most of modern Christianity. I have only just recently put together a list of scriptures of note that really made an impression on me, and they (amongst other things) outlined a key difference in the “faith of Christ” over modern translations. I found my own conclusions being so radical I decided to go looking for others that thought the same thing...and low and behold I find your piece. Pretty much every argument and scripture you mention are in my thesis also. Others I know are also talking about this.
After sitting in churches for 35 years I must say I feel very ripped off by modern theology, their preachers, and their bibles. Many thanks for your piece.
I am now pondering if the faith is "of Christ", then the purpose of it is for the Righteousness of God –as per Phil 3:9. A similar matching of scripture on this so called "Righteousness which is of God by Faith" lifts the lid on this mystery of faith...He who seeks out the kingdom of God and his righteousness will be filled...
This is great stuff...God Bless

Subject: The Truth of Amillennial Eschatology

God bless you.
I am Pastor and Mission overseer of Christ Mission Church based in Nairobi Kenya. I stumbled across Mountain Retreat website two days ago when studying on fasting (Now book marked as a favorite site). Firstly, your view on fasting completely altered my course and direction. And again, there was a strong pull in me to read through the subject on eschatology. I have been a pre-millennialist all along, but the Holy Spirit has convicted me to alter my stand. The scriptural evidence is overwhelming. The Lord Forgive me for being so blind and teaching error.
I have been praying over these matters that God show the real truth. And he has. Praise his name. I am in the initial stages of my MBA in theology through International College of Bible Theology (ICBT). I have a BA from the same institution. I do not know if you could recommend a true reformist theological seminary, where I can pursue my MBA, by online correspondence.
Kind Regards as you labour for the Lord Jesus Christ.

It must be now past 6 years since I had contacted you to express my appreciation for your presence on the Internet. After 4 years, I had found the general vulgarity of the Internet difficult to accept, and so closed “theforgottenbible.org” in late 2008. Requested to place a dissertation back "online", I have ventured onto the Internet once again, and am delighted to see that you are still there! What a joy to see your service unto the Lord Jesus Christ still available. I thank you for the encouragement that you give to me and remain,
Yours with kindest regards,

Subject: Cremation and Christianity
Thank you for your 2001 article on the cremation debate. I have been trying to find one for years that would explain this topic clearly, simply, and biblically. Yours in Christ, Cheryl

Dear Tony Warren,
Grace and peace be your potion always.
I write to thank you for your very informative exposition on Mark 16:15-18 I
have been presenting
those same views to a group here in Barbados but found that I was alone in this
until I came across your work which is excellent.
I just wanted to say thank you and may the good Lord help you to continue the
good work for Him.

My husband and I would like to thank you for for writing your article regarding cremation. My husband, a Christian of 16 years, thought the cremation was ok. I, a Christian all my life, recalled learning as a young girl in church that cremation was wrong.
We wanted to get clarification and found it through your article and scripture. We want to thank you for writing it and showing us through God's word that burial is the Christian way to handle our bodies after death.

What a Joy!!!
First of all, let me say that it is so rare to find an old fashioned and biblical website anymore, that I was blessed to come across the Mountain Retreat. I found you by searching "the mark of the Beast" and have been reading articles ever since. this is the only end times prophesy that makes any sense to me, so may God bless your ministry.

Subject: Tattoos and Body Piercing
Dear friend, I read your article and it is the fullest and best information concerning the heart of God and us as his children..
I have a granddaughter, raised in church, fell into the world, now back in church and following christ..
She has one area where she cannot see clearly..she is young 26 years old, but, she loves tattoos and has a large ugly one on her ankle..she wants another..I tried to discourage her..but, she needs to shake off the grave clothes of the world and put on the garments of christ..
As you said..when the parable about the marriage supper came and one man was found without his wedding garments on..
The Lord did not pat him on the shoulder and say..come in brother..
He said cast him out into outer darkness..
I see the church defiling herself in the bed of the world..
It is sickening to me..
Thank you for your article, I shall give it to her and hope for the best..

Praise the Lord.
God bless you all for the good works. I want to know which Bible training college you were trained. You seem to have some wonderful interpretation and revelations into the word of God. Please so I may recommend it to my Church members. Hope to hear from you soon.
May I ask if you are a speaker so we may invite you some time soon during one of our programmes.
Keep up Sir
Shalom and God bless you.
