in response to reader comment: Mr. Tovey, it is time

Submitted by M. Tovey (United States), Jan 12, 2012 at 19:31

I am encouraged to know that there is an affirmation of the truth as it may be observed here as part of the process to keep the information about the perceived Biblical implications of the world events in true Biblical order. That there are the opposite counterviews to the Biblical narrative are to be understood, for Jesus Himself withstood such from the Adversary at every turn and important juncture of His ministry, up to and including the cross and burial. Ah, but the resurrection; that's where the Adversary was stopped in his tracks; and we have our validation of the resurrection as the integral means of access to the truth of Jesus Christ by the power of His Holy Spirit.

I have at times thought about doing as you have suggested, not getting involved in the obvious circular 'debates' (for them; for me, reiterations of Biblical truth, which can never die); yet continuing for the sake of others viewing this in silence trying to sort through the exchanges to find their own path to faith; and hopefully they are led of the Holy Spirit to a place of recognizing that Jesus Christ IS alive and is desiring entrance into their hearts for salvation: (Rev 3:20). As much as I am in a hopeful mode to edge the agnostic reveries of those who have reasons of dissent to not believe the truth of Jesus Christ, I am keenly aware of the well versed opposition opinions of those who reject the words of Jesus Christ for their own reason which prevent them from seeking a saving faith in Jesus Christ: I cannot bear the idea if I quit, then what of those fates.

You mention Walid: there are others with him who had the ideologies taught from youth, then realized that the truth is just a prayer away once an honest search of the Scriptures was made. (Ecclesiastes 1:13) And I set my heart to seek and search out by wisdom concerning all that is done under heaven; this burdensome task God has given to the sons of man, by which they may be exercised. (John 5:39, Jesus Christ speaking:)"You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me.
