I received this by email and just as I received it I am passing it onto you because the truth is impacting. Please read it attentively…
If someone is pointing a gun to your head and asked if you believe in god, what would you do? Would you say “no” and feel ashamed the rest of your life? Or would you say “yes i believe” and die right there for God? If you said no, than delete this email. If you said yes and risked your life for Christ, please read this and share it.
Note: The following is a real article printed in an American newspaper less than a year ago.
There was an atheistic couple who had a daughter. The couple had never mentioned anything to their daughter about God. One night, when the girl was 5 years old, her parents had a heated argument and the father shot the mother and later committed suicide. The little girl saw everything! She was taken to a foster home. Her foster mother was a Christian and would take her to Church. On her first day of Sunday school, the mother told the teacher that the girl had never heard about Jesus and to have patience with her. The teacher showed a photo of Jesus and asked, “Does anyone know who this is?” The girl said “I know! That’s the man who was hugging me the night my parents died.”
If you believe that this girl was telling the truth (although she had never heard about Jesus) about how He had been with her the night that her parents died, then you’re going to forward this message to everyone you can. Or you can erase it acting like it never touched your heart.
Ironic isn’t it? Ironic how people leave God aside and later wonder why the world is going to hell.
How ironic, that you believe everything the newspapers say, but you question what the Bible says.
How ironic that people want to go to heaven even though they don’t believe, think, say or do anything of what the Bible says (or does it scare?).
How ironic, that some say “I believe in God” but they follow Satan (who also “believes” in God).
How ironic, that you send hundreds of jokes through e-mails (which are sent as forwards), but when you forward messages that talk about God people don’t share it.
How ironic, how vulgar and obscene things get sent via cyberspace, but talking about Jesus isn’t done in schools or in the workplace.
How ironic, that when you receive this message you’re not going to forward it to many people in your contact list because you’re not sure in what they believe in or what they’re going to think about you when you send it to them.
How ironic, how someone can be so passionate about Christ every Sunday, but be an invisible Christian the rest of the week (are you laughing?).
How ironic, that I can be more concerned of what others think about me, than what God thinks about me (are you thinking?).
Share this message, only if you feel to do so. Remember: GOD LOVES YOU
God Bless You
