Very well said, Mr. Tovey...

Reader comment on item: The Limits of Terrorism
in response to reader comment: Amicus Curiae - The Only One to Trust - Jesus Christ the LORD

My conversion to the word of Jesus Christ came about because a preacher finally made some intellectual sense to me. It opened my eyes. Fifteen minutes later the Holy Spirit poured into me and opened my eyes, ears, and heart. But I didn't find out untill months later after reading the words of our savior himself, who and what the Holy Spirit was.

All this came about because a man dared to step outside the realm of a once girl friend who just quoted scripture. God can commune with people in many ways. As I've said before, I can quote scripture, but find most people turn off as soon as I mention the Bible. That holy book is just that, but people need insight presented to them in different ways before they can even consider looking at the Bible. God himself opens the eyes of individuals. We grease the skids with prayer for those whose eyes and ears are closed to truth as it is purely presented in the Bible. It helps, too, as with me, to speak in a way that others can understand by reading their hearts to know what language their individual hearts speak.

The Muslims have some valid problems with the Gospel as it has been presented in the past. Methods of delivery can make all the difference.

I have great respect for your eloquence and vast knowledge of history. You are well educated and have a very sound mind, but if people are going to be turned, they have to be met where they are at, and on terms that reach their hearts and minds.
