I want to tell you about my friend. He’s had a tough and hard life. In school, we fished, played on the same football team together. We even shared the same bike. But the one thing we couldn’t share was when I became a Christian.
When students are studying , we debate long into the night about things like life, universe, God and everything. Thinking back, I think he quite enjoyed making challenging bold statements. And I thought a lot about the things that he said and though difficult they are to hear, I would like to share them with you now.
I should trust God with all things…
Whosoever trust in the Lord, happy is he
this is a lie
to be happy, trust no one but yourself
I will not tell my friends & family
what is important to me
it will be obvious
in my life
anything and everything
is more important than
I tell you this
I read in the Bible
Jesus is God’s only son
but I know this is a lie
God does not exist
people tell me
religion is a waste of time
I do not agree that
I should be spreading the Word of God
in these days and times
the destruction of the church is expected
I can no longer say that
people care and love each other
it is obvious that
all people are full of hate
I find it difficult to believe that
there is a God
and this is the way my friend felt, for many years, until Jesus reversed his way of thinking.
Want to know how my friend feels now? Read his thoughts (red text) backward now and you will know.
My friend is now known as Rev. Martin Preece . Praise The Lord.
