in response to reader comment: RESPONSE TO STEVE RISHER

I was quite impressed with your response to me. It is obvious you study and retain much about history. But your response to Steve Risher was sadly, not fully correct. You can say there is no God. You can say it from now until the time you meet Him. People that think He is not real have never heard His voice. Until you actually give yourself to Him, hear Him, see the works he can do in your life, you probably will not believe He is real. And that is ok.

I am an intelligent individual. I always believed I was a Christian, I was told I was a Christian, but I did not know the Lord. But at 50 years old the Lord opened my eyes and ears and heart. My life has been awesome ever since. I have seen well over 20 miracles in the last few years, including instantaneous healing. I could go on, but I know you are not interested. We all are entitled to our opinions. I suggest, with all your knowledge, you be more careful to leave your opinions out. You obviously have a wealth of knowledge, use it, you have a good way of making things clear. (I got some good understanding from other articles you wrote). But please don't try to convince people there is no God, anymore than I will try to convince you there is. I know He is real, but nothing I can say can make you realize it.

Try to understand this one point Steve was trying to make. REAL Christianity is not a religion. It is knowing the Lord God, having a personal relationship with Him, belonging to Christ, having your name in the Lamb's book of Life. Sadly, few will ever come to this realization until the day 'every knee will bow, and every tongue will confess, that Jesus Christ is Lord.' If I could only explain the love, joy and peace that comes from Him, but it is beyond the limitations of human vocabulary. I will also pray for you, for the scales to be lifted from your eyes. I am not any better than you, as we all are sinners and fall short of the Glory of God. I just want to make it clear........ Real Christianity is not a religion. Religion is man made. Have a great day.
