God wants all to believe in him.   You chose to suppress God.  You should just pat yourself on the back  Wink

Turns out, suppressing God is impossibly easy. Remembering to breathe takes more effort. No shit. I mean, If I didn't already know better ... yeah?

So much harder for a guy like you to suppress doubt is what I'm saying. But you knew that.

I get what you're saying. 

I think it's progressively easier to suppress God once you're further and further and further removed from him.   I've lived that out myself....it's a slippery slope.

I used to have many doubts....absolute doubts that lingered for years and years.  Those doubts mounted and compounded as time went on.  Eventually the doubts transformed into excuses I would use to engage in more and more sin (ex: pornography, smoking, drinking, anger, lust, lying, gossiping, partying) and suppress God more and more.   Give a lie enough time to simmer and a person will eventually convince themselves that the lie is now truth.

Finally I surrendered to Christ in a moment of personal turmoil and the tangible presence of the Holy Spirit filled me, surrounded me, changed me and has never left me.   I've experienced many other divine encounters that further eliminate my former doubts.

There are far more nominal Christians than the genuine article so many folks never experience God like I have because they aren't true believers. 

I suppose I needed to be shook up more than others in order to get my head right.

Now, that isn't to suggest to you must have divine revelations like I have to be a genuine Christian.

There are actually millions that have had experiences like I have, but there are millions of believers that haven't yet their faith is unwavering and stronger than mine in some cases.

I would say that one of the experiences I've had is definitely uncommon, but within my own circle of influence (family and friends) several others have had similar experiences so it's hard to measure.

I would agree that in general my experiences are uncommon, but as I said there are many, many, many folks that could validate (and have validated) what I've experienced based on their own experiences.

Sure I can.  I don't offer any of it as proof for anyone else, but it certainly is for me.  Just something to consider if my opinions and character are valued.

Ok, so I had a bad accident in 2010.  Almost died.   God found me after that accident and changed my life.

So it took many months to recover, but I did.  Finally stepped foot in the gym again and I was a bit humbled for the first time in many years.

I prayed and pushed through and out of nowhere an older man (60ish) approached me.  He was in great shape, handsome, white hair, white beard/moustache, tan, blue eyes, roughly 6'5" and probably 275lbs...solid.  

I had headphones on and hadn't interacted with anyone....hadn't even made eye contact with anyone.  Keep in mind, when my headphones are on my head in the gym virtually non one ever approaches me.....ever.  This man randomly came up to me, I removed my headphones and he said, "You just keep doing what you're doing and all will be fine."  He went on to say, "I spoke with a man a few days back.  He is 88 years old and a Green Beret and he told me that it's what in your heart that matters.  So you keep doing what you're doing.  Have a great day."  

I was highly encouraged and felt blessed.  The man then walked behind me and I sat there for a second and turned back to look at him and he was gone.  I looked all around and this dude was gone.

Keep in mind we were at the front/centerish part of a large Gold's gym and in that second he couldn't of casually walked (or even run) away out of sight.  He vanished.

I'm convinced he is an angel of the Lord sent to encourage me in those moments.  I never saw him before in the gym and have never seen him since.   It was cool.

Ok . Thanks for sharing that.
It certainly might make you stop & think an experience like that.
I'll refrain from making comment.
As you were good enough to share that info & it's your faith & belief
I'm pleased it works for you.

The question was simple, is this topic about a specific god or for any god?
