Today was yet another day of door knocking and letterboxing. Here’s some more from Monday:
Talked with an athiest fellow for about 20 minutes who had four children. His main reason for athiesm was suffering of mankind. To his credit, he sends his kids to Sunday School because He wants them to grow up and have a choice when it comes to spirituality.
Was yelled at through a window by a person screaming “Go away! God is dead!”
Talked to an 18 year-old mother who wants to know for sure if there is a God so she can raise her daughter.
Today, we talked to a guy for about an hour who describes himself as still having a small spark of spiritual interest, believing that there is probably a God. He feels distant from him; as he put it, when he prays, it is like talking to Santa Claus. He likes a lot of Christianity’s ideals, but knows how hard they are to implement in life as we know it. He also doesn’t understand how Christians can eat meat, because of the cruelty of how animals are slaughtered. He knows that scripture teaches it, but said, “I just can’t see Jesus eating meat.”
Another fellow wasn’t very interested in Bible study because his family was into translating Bibles. In the mid 1800s, that is.
Well, I think that’s all the fun for now. Tomorrow’s Wednesday–Kevin Moore and family are coming, and we’ve got class to teach.
