Let me make a statement before I go on:
I definitely wouldn’t still be alive if I had no settled belief in God and if I wouldn’t take the New Testament literally word by word.
It was only today that I said to an acquaintance; it was but my prayers that saved me from………
Many of my friends and many I know and I have heard of, say the same – for a very good reason: They all do feel the nearness to God.
That means; as soon as you do have faith in God, you are no longer alone, as you have continuously with you more than just a friend. God! Those who believe in God know that, as Jesus said: I’m with you. Always. Till the end of time!
Now, doubters can’t grasp nor realise or understand this. Neither could we explain in just a small talk statement.
But same as we try hard to explain, we might expect nonbelievers to listen and to try and understand.
Sadly enough there are too many, who simply don’t care. To them it’s foul matter they stifle by a wave of their hand – not realising that they miss their actual life.
So many Christians have faced hellish experience, but still don’t despair. In fact they even kept or found back to humour and often it’s a delight to be with them, for they donÄt have that shallow humor of (empty) nonbelievers, but that warm and includig humor of a Christian. (Including others).
Wouldn’t that be a treasure many an atheist would pay a fortune for to have?!
Any Christian is ready to tell you who is unsure about it all. Just pay a little attention and will to listen – it pays. And please stop saying as I so often hear: “Oh - leave me alone with this stuff - I wanna be free.”
Now, where is more freedom? In the wide wide life of a Christian with God, or in the narrow view of those who deny the freedom of togetherness with God?!
