But the Electron Borrows energy!

We walked down to the small cellar to have our cafe following the heavy lunch we just had. Then he said to me, I’m a vegetarian and don’t like to impose my views and beliefs on others and yet I DO NOT understand why others do.

Wow I said to ricco, what would you say if I told you I was a Christ follower? and what would you do if I tried to tell you about him. Err, he said to me, I would tell you about the countless books written to dissuade you of your belief, and besides I am an atheist.

I couldn’t help but smile to myself. You see I had set out on this particular day telling myself how tomorrow was not guaranteed to any man, and how each day I must live for God. But who would I tell about the Love of God? Surely not ricco, he’s a physicist and a good one at that. He has read all the books humanly possible and was the first to show me all the oldest books in the world, along with all the evil under the sun, which he claims should never be attributed to God. He twists all the excerpts of the bible to make out that the bible is not such a ‘divine’ book after all; and that there are other books which also have pretty good moral codes. Then he said to me, if God can promise to end all the starvation in the world I’ll follow him.

Then I remembered my post on “the mathematical code to life” and how I ended it. I truly understand that it may be difficult to hear and honour the “WORD” of God by believing because of our intellectual culture and all the scholarly books written on why we ought not to hear the “WORD”. But the fact that there has been over the centuries countless documentation on the existence of the WORD or its supposed lack of is more than enough for the intellectuals among us to sit down and ponder upon it.

Holy Spirit, I have no other words for ricco. You will have to work on him. If you can believe that electrons borrow energy, which you did not see it doing with your two eyes, how be it that you can remain ignorant when it comes to YOUR life. Being an intellectual I REPEAT is not enough of a reason to be ignorant of the true God. I lifeofastranger will not be deceived by what I see here at the centre of learning.

Electrons do borrow energy. And God does redeem lost souls. He gets them in way that only them can understand. He gets them. Amen to your prayer.

Hi Jaycee, that is so true. It doesn't matter what they think they know, God knows more, and that makes Him supreme and He has the final say. To think he tried to convince me otherwise made me realise how important my salvation really is to me.

Your prayer is sufficient...God knows how to best to reach the heart and soul of man. I was surprised when a friend of mine told me she had been praying for years and she was glad I finally decided to follow God...

Yeah, all you can do is pray that God arrests him oh. No matter how you know the bible, if you don't have faith it means nothing. Faith has nothing to do with intellect oh
