God accepts all -- even the non-believers

Jay Penn (Letters, April 27) states that God ( as Christians know Him) "is vengeful and dooms those who do not accept Him to eternal torture and suffering". Nothing could be further from the truth.

God has given every person free will either to accept Him or reject Him. Atheists, having made their decision to live their life, get on with it according to their own rules of conscience; while those such as myself, who accept God's invitation, are morally bound to be a witness to Him.
