I can't count how many times I've either heard or read about someone believing in God/Jesus because of their personal experiences. Yet, most of them
refuse to elaborate on what exactly those experiences were. I'm pretty sure the reason for such secrecy is because these people don't want to hear the
truth about those experiences, how they were perfectly normal, everyday events.
So, I'm asking for those that are unshakable in their beliefs to please give us some details on just what experiences made them a believer. If the
truth is so etched in stone for them, then why fear any replies from those that consider themselves of sound and logical minds?
There are some experiences that no one needs to write about, as in:
I had no money to feed my family, and I found a ten dollar bill on the sidewalk. Thank you, Jesus!
Well, I've had a thousand dollars in my wallet and found $40.00 on the sidewalk. So, this God must love me more, eh?
My wife had cancer, so we started praying real hard, and the cancer went away. It's a miracle!
Each year there are millions of Jesus loving/god fearing people that have been praying since before you were born, and they still died of cancer. So,
either god isn't in the game of miracles and your wife was cured through medical means, or cured in a way that we just aren't aware of yet, or he
hates those millions of people. Which do you think it is?
My car flipped over on the highway. I should have died, but Jesus and god saved me! What else could it have been?"
Ummm, how about seat belts and air bags? And again, why were you saved while millions of others are reduced to mutilated roadkill each year? This god
sure hates a lot of people!
So, if you have personal experiences other than those mentioned above, do tell, DO TELL!
