I really must protest at the attack on me by Alan Nunn (Letters, January 2).

I have no wish to undermine anyone's belief in their god and his letter shows just how bigoted some Christians can become. If the problem is with man, Mr Piper, why does your god not change him? Did he not create him?

There is a very good test to prove how strong your belief in your god is but I don't suggest you try it. Read Mark 16:18. Incidentally, I am a man and my wife does not share my convictions nor, as far as I am aware, do any of my children.
