There were times this past year that I "just drifted along" . Allowing the "world's" thoughts, mindset and direction "carry" me, so much easier that way. I remember watching science channel on "The Big Bang", why they have all the answers it seemed, so bright and positive in their declaration , even being able to "age" the earth and fossil remains to within 100 to 200 million years - !!
My associate this past year was an old "friend" Dr. Doubt-Alot, he accompanied me on some of my mental journeys. How do we know GOD IS , he says to me one evening. Why look ! , most of the world's renowned scientist don't mention God, its all cause and effect -- out there in space there is nothing , vacuum , space -- we have the earth as our classroom and we know that "little critters formed and today U have man and he lives and dies and life goes on -- period . Hmm, maybe your right I think -- after all , we don't see God stepping out of the atmosphere and making Himself known -- we have people in church, emotional people, many not grounded in religion ,--alot of churchianity but little "CHRIST".
But then I remember -- I remember when I thru the witnessing of a humble baptist Christian, repented of my sinful life and asked God to forgive me and that I trusted HIS CHRIST as my Payment for my sin debt that I could not pay -- I believed by "faith" what this Bible said and I found Christ to be real INSTANTLY within my soul -- washed, made clean and alive . It was personal , the world could not "see" my Christ, but I did within -- to my worldly friends, HE was still invisible, a vacuum, void , but to me , HE was "A Friend that sticketh closer than a brother".
My very worldly associate Dr. Doubt-Alot said he was leaving for the time being , as he didn't want to "hang" around with a person who didn't want to use common worldly intelligence -- for he says " THE FACT IS " there is no God -- u are your own god ---
This life we live , IS BY FAITH -- we are saved and kept by faith , but this faith is valid , for it regenerates, makes new the soul of man -- we been "BORN AGAIN" and every Christian born of the Spirit of God has an identical testimony ie: I repented, believed on the Name of the Son of God and was saved ---
Amazing this common denominator, that scientist use to look for proof -- "We of every country , and tongue, we who found Christ have the same testimony ---YES -- YOU, OH GOD , ARE OUT THERE ----
its only normal to be tested at times with doubts , but then we "remember --" Ah ! The sweetness of HIS COMFORT , HIS PRESENCE ---
hang in there Christian pilgrim ----
