If Israel values its existence they will strike and dispense with the barney and friends talk. Makes me want to vomit.

I disagree with this statement.
Sword of Geddon wrote:Its simple logic. If you don't know someone, how can you have any sort of feelings for them? Saying otherwise is merely unrealistic idealism.
Sword of Geddon wrote:I understand what your saying. I meant not having a face-to-face or communication level relationship though.
If we focus on their sin, and not on their need to be free of it, and out of love for them in their lost state, we won't be able to play a part in winning them over to Christ.

I think the greatest part of this is something I haven't said. On July 4th, I was around a large number of non christian family friends and in the midst of such shallow entertainment, I started praying for the Lord to give me an opportunity to witness. I was holding on to the Lord in the moment and all I could think about was witnessing, which I knew wouldn't be possible in the environment I was in (gotta love get togethers with family and friends sometimes!).....I have already witnessed to these people and they are hostile to it. I am left only to pray for them and continue on in the "family" as it pleases my earthly mother and father that I do so.
Well, the very next morning when I got on FP and read new posts on this thread, the Lord gently tugged at my heart to give my own testimony. He gave me a chance to witness.
I don't know if what I wrote is for any one person, or who it may benefit, I am just jubilant about the fact that I have a witness. It reminds me of all that the Lord has brought me through, taught me, and I know His Word promises that He will complete a good work....and that means I am His.....for that, I am eternally grateful and satisfied to my core.
