Since posting that article, we have averaged 3-5 hits a day from every conceivable search engine on the planet, (some from as far away as Saudi Arabia), all seeking information on either Mr. Jennings, or his teachings. Initially it was our belief that many of these hits were from Jennings supporters, but as we began to further analyze the data, it became clear that many were seeking information to defend against his teachings. We also began to see that those individuals who are followers of Mr. Jennings can be some of the most dedicated people I have ever encountered, as well as being extremely defensive of him. The following e-mail provides a good case in point. The letter is dated October 14, 2004, was written by an individual named Vincente Harrison and is transmitted here unedited:
What categories does your beliefs fall under? What do you believe is the way man should follow in order to be with God in eternity? You have all these ideas and theories and categories others beliefs into a system you designed that you believe is correct so prove it!!
Enough talk, and "cyber belief" systems let’s prove what you say using the scriptures. If what you are saying is the truth and is here for all men to acknowledge the surly you would not mind getting the HIGHEST RANKING OFFICIAL IN YOUR ORGANIZATION TO DEFFEND YOUR BELIEFS IN A TELEVISED PUBLIC FORUM. IF ANY OTHER OFFICALS FROM YOUR ORGANIZATION WANTS TO SUPPORT YOU LEADER ALL ARE WELCOME TO COME! One by one you can bring what you say to be true.
There is no use talking and wasting technology and web-space printing and mentioning others and what they believe unless you are willing to PUT YOU VERY OWN BELIEFS ON THE LINE IN PUBLIC ON TELEVISION LIVE FOR THE WORLD TO SEE! FREE OF CHARGE FOR YOU ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS COME WITH YOU BELIEFS AND WHAT YOU SAY TO BE TRUE FROM THE BIBLE.
This way no one can leave confused and you can prove once and for all your beliefs are meant for the world!
Please respond and do not be timid or have a cowardly spirit defend your beliefs in public. For God does not give us the spirit of fear. PUT UP OR SHUT THIS WHOLE WEB-SITE DOWN AND THROW YOUR BELIEFS IN THE TRASH NEVER TO BE THOUGHT OF AGAIN.
PLEASE RESPOND ASAP OR AGAIN SHUT THIS WHOLE WEB-SITE DOWN AND OR DO NOT REFER TO GINO JENNINGS AT ALL BECAUSE IT IS DANGEROUS TO SPEAK AGAINST A TRUE MAN OF GOD. I THANK THE LORD JESUS CHRIST GOD ALMIGHTY FOR PASTOR JENNINGS AND WHAT THE LORD HAS ALLOWED HIM TO DO THROUGHT THE SOLE HELP OF GOD HIMSELF!
JUST IN CASE YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OF ANYTHING WRITTEN IN THIS WRITING PLEASE ADDRESS IT DURING THE PUBLIC FORUM WE CAN ARRANGE. THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL I REFER THIS SITE TO SOMEONES ELSE.”
Mr. Harrison concluded his letter with contact information to Gino Jennings organization.
