Quote# 41199

I went through this exact scenario five years ago, when the Holy Spirit brought me back to the fold. After wandering most of my adult life, my re-entry into a personal relationship with Jesus (not just being saved) caused me to literally "go crazy" in my small town and share my changed life. Atleast that's what my friends and family thought. Every person I would run into at the post office, library, grocery store or local police would be the next "victim" of my witnessing. I even returned to my old favorite local bar and read to some of my friends from Revelation about what was coming, while replacing my beer with a diet coke. At that time I was convinced that I would be raptured within months, if not days. I still am!!! "Faith without works is dead", says James - the brother of Jesus. I left letters and tracts in my empty house for the next renter to find and explained the importance of being born again.

After wandering most of my adult life, my re-entry into a personal relationship with Jesus (not just being saved) caused me to literally "go crazy" in my small town and share my changed life. Atleast that's what my friends and family thought.

There's every chance that they are right.

Every person I would run into at the post office, library, grocery store or local police would be the next "victim" of my witnessing.

That sounds... Creepy.

I even returned to my old favorite local bar and read to some of my friends from Revelation about what was coming, while replacing my beer with a diet coke.

Firstly, just because you have the flu doesn't mean you have to go around coughing on everybody else.

Secondly, aren't you supposed to be abstaining from evil and the appearance of evil? To wit, getting drunk and hanging around sleazy bars.

At that time I was convinced that I would be raptured within months, if not days.

So what went so horribly and tragically wrong that I had to listen to this rant?

I left letters and tracts in my empty house for the next renter to find and explained the importance of being born again.

Those aren't good "works". That's just leaving your trash around for others to pick up.

Five years later you're still convinced that you'll be raptured in months, if not days.

But doesn't the bible also say that those works are things like feeding the poor, visiting the imprisoned, helping the elderly and comforting the unhappy people? Something about "as you do unto the least of these you do unto me". Nah, Paul never said anything like that.

Diet Coke: official sponsors of God.

"If you aint witnessing with Diet Coke, you aint witnessing at all!"

Okay, so you had a mental breakdown, harassed everyone around you with some unpleasant apocalyptic fiction. Now, five years later, you still cling to your conviction that you'll be raptured within months, despite all evidence to the contrary.

Congratulations, you're a credulous idiot.

I'm hoping the cleaning crew takes care of these along with the rest of the garbage.
