Some Pitfalls of Reinhard

God is raising up others to take restoration further. And He is confirming
this 1) through dreams, and 2) by raising the dead.
Bonnke was a small boy, in his home church in Germany a lady received a
prophecy and vision that one day he would evangelise Africa. He went on to
fulfil that prophecy. Now, some 50 years later, his outreach to black
African nations has taken the gospel to multiple millions – even in single
As an example,
in a massive ‘crusade’ in Ibadan, Nigeria from 7-11 November 2001, Reinhard
preached to an estimated 4 million people. 2.5 million decision cards for
Christ were completed. (Filled in by those ostensibly declaring their
commitment to Christ, and their acceptance of His salvation.)

would grow dramatically over the next few weeks as the Christians swelled
the numbers." (CfaN Revival Report Telegram, Dec 2001, p 4.)
happens when these new believers reach those churches? Are they fed
properly? Are they able to grow spiritually, as they should? In a moment, I
will tell you what God showed me in dreams about all this.
Is Gospel Witness Validated By Large Numbers?
"The event had
called upon all the resources of thousands of churches which had taken part:
these churches had supplied 150,000 counsellors, 100,000 intercessors,
50,000 ushers, 5,000 additional security people, 1,000 paramedics and 100
doctors." (CfaN Revival Report Telegram, Dec 2001, p 4.)
terrific support from all the co-operating churches. They wanted to be in on
‘the act’. Understandably so.... they have much to gain from association
with Reinhard's ministry, Christ For All Nations.
It is well
known in all the areas where Reinhard Bonnke preaches that many sick people
who attend his meetings are healed – some who are crippled, some blind, some
deaf, some mute. Countless miracles occur. Some are delivered from demons.
Reinhard is dedicated to the call on his life, and where there is faith in,
and love for Jesus, He responds.
authenticate the message and bring many to a knowledge of Jesus. As the word
spreads about this success, so does the name of Reinhard Bonnke. Success
breeds success. But there is a price to be paid for such success.
In the massive
gospel meetings in Nigeria in 2001, 15 people were crushed to death, as the
crowd's enthusiasm spilled over. This fact was not reported in CfaN's Revival Report. Only the positive facts were presented. It took a
secular TV documentary to disclose this sad fact.

even questioned whether he should be continuing with such large scale
He has good
reason to be concerned:
Woe to you when all men speak well
of you, for so did their fathers to the false prophets (Luke 6:26).
I am not
suggesting that Reinhard Bonnke is a false prophet. He has had his full
measure of opposition, false accusations to bear, and persecution to put up
with. But I AM suggesting that there is a need for reform, because God is
indicating this in dreams, which I will come to.
with the reputation and acclaim given to false ‘prophets’ who bring smooth
messages that people want to hear, is the stark reality that true prophets
are NOT accepted:
Blessed are you when they revile
and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My
sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for so they persecuted the prophets
who were before you (Matt 5:12).
Message of True Prophets Not Wanted
It is also
significant that Jesus' warning about true prophets not being easily
accepted occurs in ALL gospel accounts (Matt 13:57; Mark 6:4; Luke 4:24;
John 4:44). The truth is that prophets are not wanted and not heeded because
their message upsets the status quo. The majority of the people don't like
their correction, and nor do church leaders, evangelists of God included!
I'm sad to say
that even the great men of God such as Reinhard Bonnke don't want to know
what God has to say to the Church via prophets He has raised up for the
task. God spoke to me in this dream on 6th August 2001:
dream I was wanting to reach Reinhard with the truths and revelations which
God has given us for the Church. The first time I tried to reach him I was
able to meet him. [This is not a literal face to face meeting, but
represents how I have reached him through correspondence I have had via his
office manager.] After I had spoken with him for a short while he turned
away from me. [What he has done in spirit.]

What did you go out into the
wilderness to see? A reed shaken by the wind? ...a man clothed in soft
garments? Indeed those who are gorgeously apparelled are in kings' courts.
But what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, and more than
a prophet! (Luke 7:24-26.)
John did not
care for the person of men. He didn't care what others thought of him. He
only cared what God thought. He never held back. He spoke out, reprimanded,
rebuked and corrected without fear or favour (Matt 3:7-9). Eventually, it
cost him his life (Matt 14:3-10).
people came to hear his preaching, his humility still remained legendary.
When some of his disciples reported to him the remarkable things his cousin
Jesus was doing, he merely said:
He must increase, but I must
decrease (John 3:30).
When would the
great evangelists of today admit to that? Would they ever concede that it is
time for their ministries to wane and to give credit to others waiting in
the wings to come on stage?
It is hard to
resist the inertia that carries their operations along. And what about the
traditions which fuel their acceptance?
respect, on 15th February 2002, I was given two dreams about Reinhard's

talking with Reinhard about things to do with his preaching of the gospel.
These words came out of my mouth (prophetic words inspired by God) in the

repentance he teaches.
Baptist was the most highly rated man of God, according to Jesus, because of
his humility, single-mindedness and the depth of repentance he taught.
It's Hard For You To Accept...
evangelists with the largest impact display a plethora of tainted biblical
teachings. They subscribe to majority views that undermine some pure
biblical truths. It is now time to restore these truths to the Church, but
do people want to know...?
When a certain
prophetess learned what we were promoting, she could not refute what I had
written about the applicability of keeping God's Sabbaths today, but would
she keep them and teach others? No. She commented euphemistically "You're a
prophet before your time."
No, I'm not.
It's the Church that is behind the times! Now to the second dream about
Reinhard given on 15th February 2002:
talking to Reinhard, I brought up the subject of keeping the Sabbath holy as
God instructs us in the Bible (Ex 20:8-11; Is 56:2-8; Is 58:13,14). In
answer to him, this was given to me by the Spirit:
make tea you make it with hot water because you want to keep it hot. You
don't wait until the water is cold before pouring the water onto the tea.
So it is with
the Sabbath. It is holy time (‘hot’) and God commands us to keep it holy (Ex
20:8-11). He tells us how to keep it holy.
That holy time
comes to us as the 7th day of the week begins Friday evening. But the
customs of most of the Church in this present evil world are to wait until
holy time has expired and keep Sinday, oops, Sunday instead. You can't keep
cold water hot, nor can you keep Sunday as holy time when it isn't.
That was the
dream God gave me. It is loaded against many!
What God Said In Dreams About Reinhard
Ministries is a unique ministry. I am a prophet with a commission to restore
‘lost’ truths to the Church. So, you shouldn’t be surprised by the number of
revelations God has given my wife and me via dreams. This has always been
God’s most direct and expressive route of revelation to prophets (Num 12:6).
follows, I am going to share with you most of the dreams God gave to me
about Reinhard, and about his work, past and future. These dreams illustrate
what is on God’s heart and where Reinhard – along with the overwhelming
majority of other apostles, evangelists and even prophets, with most of the
Church – is missing it.
The dreams on
the previous pages introduce the major truth God wants restored to His
Church – God’s Sabbaths and festivals.
truth is God’s greatest priority now – not ‘saving souls’. God has never
been in difficulties saving the lost. Many preachers have behaved as if He
has been! They need to understand His plan. (Those who die in this age
without hearing the gospel will have a chance to be saved in the Great White
Throne Judgement period.)
that follow give an overview from God’s perspective.
On August 18th
1997 I was given a dream about international evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. He
came to visit us and was very interested to know what we were doing.
our electrical room and made some suggestions as to how we could alter the
wiring to get more output from our equipment. He was very well-meaning and
full of enthusiasm for the work we were doing. He was a real joy to be with,
and so helpful.
The dream depicts his good character and motives. Reinhard lives for God and
to promote the Gospel. What the dream doesn’t show are his misconceptions.
They follow in other dreams:
Reinhard And Our Van
2000. M. Dream of Reinhard and Our Van.
Yesterday, 28th April, I was moved by the Spirit to send
– Whose Authority? to Reinhard Bonnke, via his office manager here,
Bernard Jones. Then, God gave me a dream to indicate the response, and the
immediate future of our ministry.
In this dream,
Reinhard was temporarily occupying a Council house. It was a very ordinary
place. Our ministry was represented as a small white van which was parked in
the front garden. It was squarish, small, and white, but nothing much to
look at. It was not an impressive vehicle.
meetings being held in Reinhard’s Council house. They were very ordinary,
and the material was so familiar to us that they held little interest. I
wasn’t sure whether to stay or leave, but I showed respect by sitting down
and staying. I sat at the back. The meeting was soon over.
I got up and,
on leaving, I passed Reinhard, who was sitting in an empty room with only
his chair and a telephone. He was making a call to book his airline flight.
I wanted to stop and talk with him but he was busy, so I just walked by him
and left. Even if I had used sign language to him to acknowledge him and
smile, that would have distracted him from his call, because he didn’t know
me, so I said and did nothing as I went out.
I got in my
small white van and drove off. Before doing so, there was a pile of paving
slabs outside which I moved (supernaturally) from the place where they had
been left to the middle of the lawn in front of Reinhard’s Council house.
They must have weighed a ton or two, but they had been moved (not by human
might, but by God’s). Yet, they complained that I shouldn’t leave them
there, the grass would die underneath. I said “That’s not my problem; it’s
yours”, and walked off.
I drove off in
my van. Not long down the road, I noticed that I had a flat tyre. I wasn’t
sure whether to go back and change it or what. While I was stationary,
considering what to do, I noticed that there was a fork in the road. The
road to the right went past a nice new home some guy was building opposite a
large mountain. He had chosen this idyllic spot because he liked the view.
The mountain opposite his house was about 5,000 feet tall, yet it was in the
Chilterns! (Just a low range of hills in southern England, only a few
hundred feet high. The figure of 5,000 is symbolic; it is 50 [release] x 10
[number of man or ‘humanness’] x 10.)
The other road
was the road to the left. That was the route I chose, but it was unclear
what lay down that road ahead. The dream ended there.
Council house, and the meetings: This depicts the more substantial
physical structure of his ministry compared with ours, but the very ordinary
teaching in his ministry.
booking: Symbolises the large finance Reinhard has compared with ours
and what that makes possible in his ministry. He can go places fast, unlike
white van: Our ministry is nothing much to look at on the outside, but
our teaching is practical. It is not a ministry backed by large resources,
so it epitomises that lack of support, but it is going places by our efforts
and with God’s guidance. White = righteousness.
tyre: The obstacles we have to contend with in doing this work. We face
many difficulties and lack of funds because true prophets are not recognised
and don’t have the acclaim that false prophets get.
of paving slabs which I moved and left on their front lawn: Part of the
work of ‘Elijah’ is restoring the way, showing the path to walk. But it is
others’ responsibility to lay the pavers out and walk that route. We can’t
do it for them. The symbolism shows the unwillingness of personnel at CfaN
to incorporate the truth about Sabbaths and holy days into their Christian
supernaturally moved: What is to come in our ministry will make the
truths about the Sabbaths so plain to CfaN that they then have the
responsibility to lay those aspects of truth out, and put them into
house some guy was building: Preoccupation with the physical structure –
a big problem in most churches.
fork in the road: The way which is unclear what lies ahead. The faith
walk – but it is in freedom with God.
Reinhard Bonnke Is 'Assassinated'
2000. M. Reinhard Bonnke. Two dreams.
1) In the
first dream, Reinhard was assassinated.
Everyone was shocked and could hardly believe it! I saw the assassin’s
‘bullet’ embedded in his body. It was not a bullet, but a round piece of
aluminium, splayed into a rough star shape. (This indicated that the dream
was not meant to be taken literally but has a figurative meaning.)
I went close
to Reinhard and wanted to pray for him to be resurrected, but I didn’t feel
it was appropriate because it would have drawn attention to me. That I
didn’t want. But my presence there drew the anointing of God on our ministry
into the situation, and... Reinhard came back to life.
Reinhard is a good man of God, but he needs the truths contained in our
ministry’s teaching. These include the knowledge of the Sabbaths, holy days
(festivals of God) and new moon celebrations. They are an integral part of
the faith once delivered to the saints, about which he is still unaware.
What God is
going to do with us – by raising the dead – will spell the death of his
present ministry. It will cause him to be made aware of us and of these
truths of God. The result will be a new lease of spiritual life in him, and
enable him to start again with fuller truth.
the dream predicted this several years beforehand.
2) In the
second dream of Reinhard, he was coming out of his headquarters which was
depicted as a caravan. He was leaving to go to his next campaign. I waited
for him to leave, and as he walked away I went up to talk with him. I
encouraged him to keep up the good work and to do a ‘good job’ as he always
does at campaigns. I felt a real affinity with him in the spirit. [This
depicts my love for the man and my admiration for what he has achieved. Some people misjudge me and think that I want to find fault with Reinhard
out of wrong motives. God knows that is very untrue.]
Then, as the
Spirit moved me deeply, I said: “There is not much time left. You know, we
only have one or two years left!” He was surprised, but he believed me.
Reinhard's Dead Procession
2002. M. The Funeral Procession.
Reinhard Bonnke was in this dream.
procession. There were a number of people going to a funeral. All the bodies
– and there were many of them, probably 20 or 30 – were loaded onto a
flat-bed cart which people were pulling. The corpses were covered with
reddish-brown sheets, like the colour of burnt soil.
smaller trailers, small people were sitting (in sixes), totally covered
(over their heads as well, so they couldn't see anything) with charcoal
coloured blankets. Also, they were facing the other direction to the way the
procession was going. Reinhard Bonnke was at the front, leading them. I
couldn't help but think, "Why doesn't he show them what is wrong with their
customs? Why does he just go along with them without correcting the error in
their tribal traditions?!"
Here God is revealing that there is a need to forcefully address the matter
of wrong traditions in the Church, such as Sunday worship, Easter,
Christmas, hierarchic church authority, etc., which are as pagan in their
origins as tribal (demonic) traditions.
It is now time
to move on. The old church structures and teachings are inadequate to
prepare the Bride of Christ to accept the full purity of God's teachings in
do his work. He must challenge all the false prophets of Asherah and Baal
and their compromised teachings promoted by Jezebel in the Church.
What the imagery of this dream portrays:
The Church with its present teachings is heading towards death, as in
Sardis. It needs new revelation of truth to revive it.
bodies. There are many dead Christians, who are not alive by the Holy
sitting in sixes. Six in biblical numerics denotes the evil which men
subscribe to. From God's perspective, these small groups of people need to
come to terms with the evil in their Christian practice.
covered... they couldn't see anything. The blindness of the Church. They
can't see where they are headed. They are blindly following customs that
have no biblical basis.
other direction to which the procession was going. Reinhard is pointing
people towards God's Kingdom of righteousness which Jesus introduced.
Despite the fact that he has got some things wrong in his theology, the
overall thrust of all his work is towards God. But many believers are facing
the other way. They don't share his aspirations. They are selfish and
self-orientated, which is backward looking.
was at the front, leading them. God holds him responsible as their
spiritual leader for not showing them the folly and unbiblical nature of
their religious practices.
There needs to be a radical re-emphasis in your teaching to these people.
You need to upgrade the content and spiritual depth of your preaching. After
all, you are not preaching to the unconverted. Most of those gathered at
your meetings are church folks (with a minority who are not), and they need
to be fed and challenged not merely entertained.
evangelistic meetings are opportunities for all these people to come
together for a big celebration, which is wonderful. But there needs to be
more. As long as spiritual instruction stays in the shallows, how can they
be made ready for the final thrust of preaching that must come to prepare
Will they be
ready when Jesus comes? Or from now on will they just continue to remain in
the dark, heads covered, going backwards towards their own funerals, after
they have attended those of others?
People’s Esteem For Reinhard
2002. M. People's Esteem For Reinhard Bonnke.
Bonnke has such a following that many will simply not accept that he has
anything more to learn.
In this dream
I was finding it impossible to convince certain people that RB is missing
certain things in the spiritual. But he is; he is not receiving in the
spirit all that he should; he is not hearing from God about everything that
he ought to be doing.
It was a real
struggle to try to make them see that he was not open to receiving certain
truths from God.
People, being like sheep, tend to follow leaders such as Reinhard Bonnke,
without thinking that the mentors they place such trust in could have
anything much more to learn. Yet, God showed me in other dreams about
Reinhard, that although he is a wonderful man of God, he is not willing to
accept (at the time of writing) that there is anything wrong with church
hierarchy. However, hierarchy in the Church is the biggest single
abomination and factor limiting the spiritual growth and development of
There are also
other spiritual issues Reinhard has yet to face such as accepting worship on
God's Sabbaths and festivals and getting rid of Sunday worship, Christmas
More work has
yet to be done, and Reinhard has yet to move ahead in all these areas, but
try convincing the sheep whom he has reached in his ministry that he is in
need of so much correction, and they would show you the door!
Reinhard Finally Concedes We Are Right
2003. M. Reinhard Bonnke is told about the Sabbath.
I was in a
room with Reinhard and I stated that the Church was missing the mark of
God’s holiness in several ways and was severely adrift, not obeying God as
she should. He was surprised, because he didn’t think such could be true.
He asked me to
give an example and I replied: “The fourth commandment.” I gave him a paper
or publication about it.
He looked at
it and considered what I had written. Then, with a sort of shake of his
head, he admitted that he could not fault my claim and had to concede I was
right. There was a hint of reluctance on his part, but he could not deny it.
After the dead are raised, to get his attention, Reinhard will no longer be
able to deny the veracity of the thesis of the Sabbath about which we have
been commissioned to correct the Church, as well as to present the other
truths expounded in our literature.
Reinhard Receives More Truth
2004. M. Dream of Reinhard Bonnke with me in the North.
Reinhard and I
were going somewhere together. He was with me in the same car as we were
travelling to a remote area up north. Although I was aware of this region
and the people there, it surprised me that he was not. I was showing him
around. He commented that it was new to him.
There was more
that followed, about reaching out and taking God’s truths to others, but I
was not permitted to remember any of that.
What this dream symbolises is going further with God, who lives ‘in the
North’. Those who know of the prophecies we have received from God about
manifold resurrections will understand the connection. After Jesus brings
back many people who have been dead for some years, the publicity that such
feats will bring will draw attention to why. It is for the purpose of
promoting truths which we ‘carry’ for the whole Church, but who have been
held in ignorance about such things up to now. These are summarised in the
leaflet Wielding The Divine Axe.
that Reinhard's present teaching is unbalanced because it leans too much on
the side of grace. It’s not that what he preaches about grace is wrong. But
there is not enough instruction given to people about the specifics of
obedience which God wants to see worked out in people’s lives after their
receipt of His grace.
A Church which
merely basks in God's grace all the time is not a disciplined Church. It is
not emphatic about His holiness. It has no substantial outworking of the
practicalities of His righteousness.
Sure, we are
righteous because of Jesus’ grace. He imputes His righteousness to us, as
Paul told the Corinthians (2 Cor 5:21). But that does not absolve us of a
duty to live out a very practical righteousness by avoiding sin, and by
fulfilling every aspect of God’s commands.
Yet there are
huge gaps in the practical outworking of God’s righteousness in people,
because of the failings of the teaching. God wants to give people more, MUCH
MORE! That was what He emphasised to me as He concluded that dream of 9th
Reinhard Approaches Me
2004. M. Reinhard Bonnke came to me and asked me to pray with him for
15 minutes. However, I wasn't keen to do so. There was no point, and I told
him so. All he needed to do was to read the literature we have produced. The
truth is in there.
There are various purposes for prayer. But when God has made truth available
in writing, one doesn't need to pray for it, just get on and read it!
Perhaps the request for me to pray with him was one of manipulation, albeit
subtle – to try and exert his dominance in some way.
In the dream
God emphasised the spiritual value of MM's publications which most people
want to ignore. 'Our' literature contains the truths of God laid out in
sufficient detail for people to know once again what the faith once
delivered to the saints was (Jude 3).
God Gives And God Takes Away
Finally, the following dream
was given to Kassahun Ayele, an Ethiopian prophet:
July 26th 2005. Reinhard
I was hearing Reinhard Bonnke
preaching in a large auditorium. He seemed very old and weak. The audience
wasn’t impressed by his preaching. The miracle-working power was also gone
ministry is on the wane. God is removing much of the anointing that
accompanied his ministry, because it is time for God’s ‘new thing’ on earth.
What this ministry (Midnight
Ministries) brings is part of that ‘new thing’, restoring truth which has
been neglected, ignored or rejected.
the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare; before they
spring forth I tell you of them (Is 42:9).
It’s Time For Reform
above dreams, God is giving an overview, not just for Reinhard’s benefit,
but for others as well, because many follow the man. None of us should
follow a man. We should only follow a person insofar as that person follows
Christ (1 Cor 11:1).
hierarchy is not to be upheld in spiritual areas (Matt 20:25, 26) for “you
are all brethren” (Matt 23:8). God wants the demonic strongholds of
ecclesiastical hierarchy demolished!
Other areas that require reformation are covered in Wielding The Divine Axe,
so I do not need to repeat all those here, except to say that it is
imperative that believers change! God is not sloppy when it comes to
His standards of holiness, and when He sends a prophet onto the scene with
‘new’ truth, He expects His chosen ones to accept it and reform. Those who
refuse to do so will be rejected.
move forward with the truths He is challenging you to accept, or you
backslide. You can’t decide to carry on just the way you have always gone,
assuming that it doesn’t matter about the error you have gone along with in
your Christian practice. The Spirit moves on and leaves you behind, where
there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
God gives His
anointing for His purposes, not for ours. And just as surely, He can take it
away too, if we don’t comply with His requirements.
many will ‘take umbrage’ at my comments, and accuse me of the height of
arrogance for having the ‘audacity’ to find fault with such a man of God as
Reinhard. But, as I have said already, I have the highest regard for
Reinhard, and if I could have reached him and conveyed what God has given me
for him without having to resort to this exposé, I would have done so. But
organisational walls of people (who are not sufficiently on God’s wavelength
to accept the prophets He sends), and the depth of church dogma, prevent
The fact that
I am a prophet of God is confirmed in my Dream Diary – which contains
many of the hundreds of dreams God has given me and my wife – and also by
the signs and wonders. The Word is confirmed by the signs which follow it
(Mark 16:20). These confirmations are the raising of the dead.
As we have
prophesied since 1993, God is raising the dead, and will continue to do so.
He has started by resurrecting people in Nigeria through our outreach there.
David Isaac Ohuoba can tell you that he realises such restoration of life to
dead bodies is closely linked with his acceptance of God’s truths promoted
in MM literature. Testimonies are contained in the leaflets Raised From
The Dead, Parts 1, 3, and 4.
In 1993 and
subsequent years, we foretold – according to dreams God gave us – greater
miracles of restoration to follow. People who have been dead for years are
coming back to life to verify these words. I have named 8 of these people in
comes to pass – surely it will come – then they [you] will know that a
prophet has been among them (Ezek 33:33).
Malcolm B Heap
A friend recently told me some
news he received from Reinhard Bonnke's ministry. Reinhard has had prostate
cancer and God didn’t heal him. Because of the seriousness of his physical
situation, Reinhard felt that he should have 'a Christian surgeon' in the
USA operate on him. After the operation, Reinhard was given the ‘all clear’,
I was removed unceremoniously
from his mailing list some years ago, so I don't get any firsthand news from
Christ for all Nations any more. (In previous years, I have sent
several missives to Reinhard, and to his ministry CfaN, pointing out that
they needed to make some drastic changes to their theology and direction.
But all of that input was ignored, and no changes were made.)
‘Across the ecclesiastical
board', true prophets are seldom heeded, and what God says through them for
others is rarely accepted. So, people fall under the judgement of God. I
wrote an article on this in Articles of Faith Vol 4 – titled My
People Do Not Know The Judgment Of The Lord. It summarises the problem
of ignorance about judgment.
doesn't even know what he has done that has pushed God away from him so that
God would not heal him. Read Isaiah 59. It explains.
A brother in the Philippines,
who had prostate cancer and a host of other ailments, but who works like a
Trojan distributing MM literature, recently wrote and told me that God had
completely healed him: "Because I was refused... [rejected by others, and
considered an outlaw, as we are by the Church at large], I just prayed to
God Almighty and His Son Jesus Christ for spiritual healing and help to live
a totally obedient and yielded life to Him. [I regarded] His spiritual
healing over and above physical healing, and God blessed me in my efforts.
"Be informed that I have been
pronounced [by the doctor] totally healed of cancer, totally healed of
infectious lung disease (tuberculosis) [for which he had been receiving
medication for a long while prior to putting his complete trust in God],
totally healed of prostate gland [cancer], totally healed of allergies to
air blown by electric fans, and of asthma which has stopped bothering me.”
Because that humble and
unassuming man put his complete trust in God, God healed him of all his
allergies, sicknesses and diseases. Why didn’t God heal Reinhard? Midnight Ministry’s book
Faith & Healing explains why some are not
On 9th March 2004, I wrote to
Reinhard (but received no reply). This was part of that letter: “God wants
