My name is James Arendt. I'm the webmaster of Deep Truths but not the author of the majority of the articles posted on this website. Most of them were written by the late David Brandt Berg and first published by The Family International. I'm a member of the Family International but not its official spokesperson. Therefore, my answers to any questions you may have will reflect my personal views and not necessarily those of the Family International nor of David Berg.
You are welcome to write me about sincere questions you have after reading articles on Deep Truths. I will respond to friendly emails in like manner. And I always appreciate positive comments people send about the articles.
Over 90% of the email I get is good and positive, and I appreciate reading them. However some people have written me negative comments and have tried to debate to justify their own viewpoints. I have learned from experience that in every single case the debate has ended only with hard feelings and misunderstandings on both sides. I have come to the opinion that debating in cyberspace is of no merit whatsoever because one cannot truly know who the other party is. Misunderstandings are therefore bound to result. In the 3 dimensional world, person to person communication is not merely spoken words, but also tone of voice, body language, and facial expressions. The last 3 are a great help to communicate effectively. Their absence in email makes it much harder win the other party over to his or her way of thinking.
Even two people who love each other and are committed to each other may have different viewpoints about various issues of life. If communications can break down in the real world of 3 dimensions, how much more so in the non-dimensional world of cyberspace?
So if you have a sincere question, a positive comment, or think you found something to be in error other than the doctrines taught on Deep Truths, please write! But if you are offended about something on this site, I suggest it is something that has to do with your relationship with God, or lack thereof, and has nothing to do with me personally.Sincerely,
