In some cases you have to do your part first. Which would be to read it, then ask if it is true.<quoted text> http://www.letusreason.org/Testim5.htm
read this, or are you afraid to learn more?
BTW I've asked, and received wisdom from the Lord, I still ask on occasion... NEVER did He say I should read the BOM!
Praying for wisdom for you, as you said... never give up on the ones you love!:-)
Would you expect an atheist to accept the Bible as truth before they read it?
