Well I'm sorry, but this thread did nothing to help me hear this supposed voice in my head. Do you mean a literal voice, or is it a metaphor
for the "essence" within? I don't feel empty or lonely without this supposed connection you talk of, and I honestly think it's sad weak people
that reach towards this invisible entity, yet deny their own divinity and spiritual essence, concluding life is meaningless without some sort of God
watching over them, giving them meaning, giving them that special feeling they can't achieve via any other means but deceiving themselves, whilst at
the same time trying to help others whom they claim are lacking that "something", when in reality their outlook completely hinges on their own
perceptions. Have a good day.
God is sad.
We have forgot him
I made this thread to remember
You cannot hear Jesus talking to your heart because you cannot open your heart and listen to him. Its not your fault, many people cannot let go of
this world or let go of themselves and dare to believe in what they cannot see. People reach out to the Lord for hope, when they have none because
hope is the second greatest gift, the first greatest gift is salvation. You cannot say he does not exist, when men and women who are so sad and lonely
are at their last end and contemplate suicide.
I knew a man once who was in dire straights. He was a wreck emotionally, his wife left him for another man, and took his kids away. He fell into the
bottle and could not get out and he was filled with sorrow and ended up losing his job. It seemed like nothing was going his way, so he bought a
pistol and rented a hotel room and sat down on the bed and cried his heart out. As he put the pistol to his head he thought "why not? i have nothing
left to live for", and just before he squeezed the trigger he saw a Holy Bible that a gideon had left ontop of the night stand next to him. He put
the pistol down and began to read the first page that fell open which had been about Jesus and how he had been beaten unrecognizeable, laughed at and
ostrasized and ended his life being nailed to a cross to die for the sins of all mankind and was raised on the 3rd day from the dead. This man read
about how if you believe in Jesus and that he died on the cross for your sins and rose on the 3rd day, you do not have to die the second death, but
have eternal life. He began to pray. A man who had never gone to a church in his entire life, or been witnessed to about the Lord began to pray. He
asked Jesus to forgive him of his sins, and to come into his life. This man had found the Lord by himself, at the precise moment he had nothing left
and wanted to die. Jesus spoke to his heart, and forgave him of his sins. He didn't get his old life back, but he got a new life instead. He
dedicated his life to the Lord and became an evangelist, traveling across the U.S. seeking out people the Lord commanded him to find. People like him
who had been lost in darkness and despair and wanted to kill themselves.
This is the power of Jesus Christ. To be able to find lost men, who want nothing more than to die and end their pain. He finds them, and forgives
them, and loves them when they have no one else. He knew you before you were ever born and he loved you then and loves you always. Jesus is God, he is
immanu'el "God whom walked amoung us" he made the world, but was not of the world, and the world knew him not and he is the King.
