What we "think " can go soo many ways. If you ask 10 people what they "think " about something, you may come away with 10 different answers. May I ask you how many times in your life you "thought " you were certain about something, only to be "rethinking " it?<quoted text>
"Again -I invite you to stop listening to what I say, what the RCC says, what any church says, and just go somewhere, where you are all alone, and take some time to see for yourself."
Excuse me but don't imply that I didn't spend a lot of time (years in fact) thinking about this and I came to my own conclusions. I do "get it". I believe just as strongly that there is no God as you believe there is a God, and all your arrogance and preaching won't change that fact. If you want to think I'm wrong that's fine because I think YOU are wrong.
After I was saved, I had a deep desire to read a bible, and go to church for the first time in my life. A man had been going to the church I started going to, and he had been very faithful for well over 20 years. If you had asked him, if he was a christian -he would have for certain said yes! Every Sunday we have, what we call meet and greet -where folks goes around shaking hands while amazing grace plays. He would never leave his spot, but would always smile and shake anyones hand that offered. One wed night, we had a geust preacher, who preached, and then walked around looking at each and every person there -he asked all "if you die tonight, would you go to Heaven? " when he got to this man -the man was speachless. HE HAD NO ANSWER. God convicted him, and he was saved that night! After all those years of "thinking " he was a christian. The very next Sunday, during meet and greet, this man was all over the church shaking hands, and had joy unspeakable. He reminded me of Nickademous, who was a religous ruler, yet knew NOT God.
There is absolutely no comparision, in being religious, and "KNOWING " not "thinking " God.
