I agree bro. It's amazing to see them cling to their wicked ways and fight and argue the word of God based on nothing. I'd love to have all people find and receive his salvation, sadly even the Bible says this won't happen. A book that's been fulfilling and still continues to fulfill prophecies.

They don't even realize that we are in the beginning of the end. 

Yes, this is correct.

I find that the majority of folks I speak to are anti-religion simply because it's currently cool to oppose religion.  Their arguments for remaining in unbelief are very thin and purely surface; these folks typically come at me (and others) with the harsh insults, images, etc.....I simply turn the other cheek.   

Although, there are some I've had the privilege to speak with that do present some reasonable obstacles to faith in God and genuinely want to have a discussion.  I say "reasonable" only in that I understand where they are coming from.  Now I fully believe these obstacles can be resolved, but they have to want to find resolution...they have to desire to understand the reality of God. 

Many just enjoy the mockery disguised as "debate".  Certainly I see right through it, but I press on regardless because I truly want to represent Christ and want others to choose him as he has already chosen them.  I do pray for the folks on this board and I don't mean that as some form of insult or put down, I genuinely pray for the folks on this board (not everyday, but often).   For some I may be their only witness for Christ.....I hope not, but I might be.

I'm not so sure if religion is as authentic as it loves to portray itself.

Christianity has some pure and strict qualities which I like and which I would deem as cornerstones of a life healthy to body and soul.
Though said qualities don't justify a top dog position - there are voices from the "new age/satanic" community, like Scott Hyatt, which offer thoughts and information much more beneficial to my life than the holy book.

Even Crowley, who's always portrayed as evil incarnate, had useful insights that one should at least consider before damning them to hell.
Terennce Mc Kenna is another great mind which I highly recommend to listen to - intelligence personified.

The only problem with the one world order is the stupid people and not the movement. Like in many other areas(multiculturism, socialism, and other mental playdoo) its the participants who determine the outcome - not the theory behind it.

The problem we're facing is extinction due to appliance of a global principle that incorporates uneducated masses instead of highly self aware individual thinkers which give/take personal space/room as needed.

Also calling anything non tangible that exists a demon is of no use.

When I was Muslim they told me that the day of judgement will look like the haj. A million ppl going around the holy ka'ba all crowded together. And how you will see everyone you ever saw in your life. People going to hell will ask: ''why didn't you tell me about islam and this knowledge'' anyway Jesus is the truth as I am born again Christian and I tell people about Jesus Christ lord and savior.

I have no "religion".  I put no stock in such drivel and less in man.  But if you insist, if ever I get "religion" I shall call it "Bob".  Grin

What I do have is this -  Faith in Christ.

I can't even imagine.  Cry

That's why I so badly hope others that don't know God get the opportunity to claim him as savior as I have.   I know my words mean very little to most and that's ok (it's not about MOS), but I truly do pray others will come to know God.  Despite all the insults and mockery about religion, God, Christians, etc....it really doesn't matter to me.  I surrendered to God's will for my life and his presence and will have been made known to me almost daily now.  I pray others will surrender to his will for their lives as well.  We have some good folks on this board that I'd love to see changed for Christ.


Why should others change for Christ? I do not get it. You have not even given a reasonable explanation as to why someone should change for Christ.

You can be a perfectly good person and do great and moral deeds without Christ.

So what is the justification for changing for Christ?

Oh sure I have.  I've written a ton on the topic on this board and the religion board.  My testimony about Jesus Christ has been shared repeatedly.  Defenses of my faith spanning a number of topics have been presented and discussed, but certainly not every objection is addressed.  All I can do is share honestly what I know and if I don't have an immediate answer to an objection I'll do my level best to search one out.  If my testimony and faith doesn't resonate with someone it's not my responsibility to continue attempting to "convince" you.....that's pure folly.  My responsiblity is to share my faith and live as a representative for Christ.    

I just ask that others don't cower behind the now cliche "I'm searching for a cogent explanation and haven't found one yet" statement.   The best apologetic defenses and testimonies have been callously flicked away with that canned, subjective statement.  What convinces one person to pursue a relationship with Christ may not convince another, but I find that those that are "convinced" already desire to know God and are looking to understand how.  If you've already decided you have no desire for anything God-related in your life then there's little else I can offer you....your choice is made.  Certainly I don't prefer it, but it's not my choice to make.

In the end, we are all sinners and the only way to align ourselves with God is through the shed blood of his Son Jesus Christ.  By admitting that we are sinners and accepting Christ as Lord and Savior we are then saved from his judgement by his grace through our faith and thereby justified and deemed righteous before him.  Our sin debt extinguished forever by a sacrifice of love and grace.   As a believer we then repent of our sin, changing our minds completely about engaging in sinful acts and striving to live according to the will of the one we claim as Savior.  As believers were are indwelled (connected at the soul if you will) by his Holy Spirit that guides and demonstrates for us the reality of who he his in our lives.....God is made manifest and tangible.  All I can tell you is that my life has only improved once I surrendered to will of the one that chose me first.

So what is the justification for changing for Christ?  Being justifed by faith and deemed righteous and having your sin debt extinguished and thereby aligned with the one that created you.  You can know the reality of God, but you have to want to first....relationships are like two-way streets.
