From Mr Roger Payne

Sir, — I hope that I am not your only reader to react to the report “Evangelicals toy with the concept of heavenly reward for all” (News, 18 February) with astonishment.

Have these people not something better to do with their time than to debate abstruse theological points at a time when more and more people are voting with their feet against this sort of theological mumbo-jumbo, and many millions of people are crying out for social justice and human dignity?
