I usually disagree with you on many levels, but for this you get SnF!
I've been meaning to make my own thread on the same subject, even though religion is something I usually avoid like the plague! aha.
2 days ago, I was at a bus stop where a black lady walked over next to me, she looked at me intently for a minute, then said "Hello, how are you,
you...having a good day today?" In an almost timid, wary, strange manner..
After a pause I was like "Yea, not bad thank you, how are you?"
"Yes, yes, Im fine"
One minute later, the lady "Can I give you this?" At first I thought it was a flyer for music festival or something, because it was colourfull, before
I could look at it properly, she said "Are you Cristian?"
My stomach dropped...One of theeeeseee conversations..
"Erm.... My family are Roman Catholic..I..." Tilted my hand and shook my hand.
She goes "Do you believe in Jesus Christ?"
"Erm... I wouldnt say either way really" ... All the while she's talking rather slow, and watching me intently, I felt pressured man!! aha.
"Do you not believe in God?" She raises an eyebrow,
"Erm... I believe in something, but im not prepared to put a lable on it"
"But Jesus in the Son of God, there is no other God..."...A few minutes of Bible babble...
All my mind was screaming to ask was "How do you see Jesus? Is he white? Black? Male? Female? How can you possibly comprehend what the "Son of God"
Of course I didnt ask her any of that, she was scary! lol.
She proceeds "Jesus died for our sin, we repent and God will accept us, but you must believe, there is no other way...Do you believe in the Devil?
Who has lead man astray?"..
Me.. "Errr... no, I dont believe in the Devil, I believe man is accountable for his owns actions..we have free will..I believe theres something out
there, that gave the universe the spark of life, but what that is, is incomprehendable"
Im just getting a funny stern look here.
"But man is not lead astray by him self, the devil do it! And the only way man can be redeemed is by accepting God, and christ..The time is coming
Me "You mean.... The Rapture?... The new age?.."
Her: "Yes, those who believe in God shall be free, and those who do not will suffer"..
MY BUS CAME! FREEDOM!! .... NOT! She got on with me
She made me take flyers and her phone number, to attend her church..
I was actually considering attending one, just for my own education, when I got home, I soon threw the idea out the window, as when I read through the
first flyer it said;
"If you ask somebody if they believe in God, and they say they are unsure, there is nope hope, they cannot be without Jesus Christ in the Soul"
I've got the flyers at home, I was gonna post them word for for, because they are quite disturbing, currently at work, so memory will have to serve.
All I could think at home when I read that flyer was.. "That crazy bitch was judging me the whole time!!" LOL
I hope there is some sort of life after death, and its completely different from what shes exspecting! She deserves a good dose of common sense! Paha
