Seattle Times letters to the editor

Mars Hill Church is not convincing

Relocation is based on money, not God’s will

So let me get this straight, the Mars Hill congregation of 2,500 people believe that God is monitoring and telling them where their church should relocate? [“Mars Hill eyes Sound Transit land in Bellevue for church,” page one, Oct. 25].

God has so many issues facing our planet, for example strife in the Middle East, the unimaginable struggles in Third World countries, a bad global economy, political discord in the U.S., criminal activity running rampant, lack of health care throughout our country, not to mention global weather issues and racism around the world.

In the vast scheme of God’s universe, this little speck which is Mars Hill Church believes that with all the issues facing him, God is focused on where the congregation will locate their church because he told them that’s where he intended for them to be located.

Mars Hill may convince its large congregation of its entitlement and that God says he sanctions this site, but try convincing the rest of us.

Sound Transit bought the property in question, get over it and move on to another location.

Susan Petersen, King County
