Dear Brother Mr. Eapen,
I did not quit because I am upset or angry. It is the opposite. I did not want to upset you in this Holiest Holy week of our Christian year. There is no way our two thought processes are going to match on this particular subject. You have some firm beliefs based on your Biblical world view and at the same time I do have my own beliefs as well. First of all it is not necessary that we need to agree on everything we talk about. A respectful way of disagreement is to quit the conversation . You can call it face saving or whatever and I am not that concerned about it.
Therefore, I find nothing wrong with you arguing that all sicknesses are the result of sin and I opposing it. At the same time my overall belief is that sickness and death are the result of the fallen nature of man and we have no escape from it. So, in a way sin caused sickness; but at the same time I am not prepared to condemn all sick people as sinners. Also, I do not agree with the argument that we can stay away from sin if we are fearful about sickness. That is one way giving control of our life to our flesh rather than surrendering to the mercy and grace of God.
This is the simple message I wanted to covey to you my dear brother and I do not know why the devil wanted to confuse our language so that we pick up each others negative side of the message...I am at fault too that my eyes catches only the points in your message which I have an opportunity to disagree... The language too plays the devil as this language is not the mother tongue for both of us....
