Every day when I am going to my work, I am watching people in train or bus or passing me by. I keep wondering how can they live without Jesus? I couldnt. Before I received Him, I was entering every day with despair and I look really sad. (I had pictures of me from that time) I was a teenager but I look 10 years older. I was in despair that I cant find true unconditional love and peace. I was searching until I find it- in Jesus! Now when I am looking into the faces of people I always wonder how can they live without Jesus? Teenagers, adults, older people? Are they satisfied with life without Him? Without His love and forgiveness? Arent they searching for true love and forgiveness in Jesus? Or are they those people who will never receive him, because Jesus said:` Try to go on the narrow path which lead to life,because not many are finding it. And there are many who go on wide road to destruction`. I think people who do drugs or alcoholic or other addicted are looking for love but cant find it.Arent they searching strong enough, that they cant find Jesus or arent they choosen ones? But God wants to save everybody! I just dont understand it.
Answers to this Question
As for the question about people who do drugs and alcohol, I work with these people. Most of the people that do alcohol and drugs do it for one main reason. Usually they are trying to hide their pain. Alot of these people have been misused, abused, and have had a rotten childhood. So they try to hide the pain by doing these hurtful habits. I can speak from experience because I dealt with this several years ago and God has helped me overcome so I can now help people. The other answer to your question is yes. They sometimes do drugs for acceptance into different cultures because they are not judged in those particular cultures. As christians we need to be accepting of people having flaws and be the church God has destined us to be and not be judgmental towards anyone but help them through their tough times. My favorite scripture is Galatians 6:1-2 Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
Sometimes it takes people like this a while to come around, all we can do is be there for them when they do without condemnation. Keep watching and praying for these people. God is giving you a heart for them. God Bless.
Look at the very last line .. God wants to save everybody! I just dont understand it.
You are one of His ambassadors .
You may want to do more than look . Find just one search and find 1 person to talk to and bring some light to their darkness.
Love the 1 in front of you .. Go find that " waiting 1 , just 1 " .
Matt 5:14 You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Matt 5:16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.You know it may be hard for some to strike up a conversation but be filled with the Spirit. I have no problem talking about Jesus anytime anywhere. The closer I am to him the more I speak of him.I know it isnt everyones nature but someone told you so you must tell others.You may be the only Jesus they see. Sorry if it sounds like boasting but if I must boast in anything let me boast in this let me boast that I know the one true God and his Son Jesus Christ.We have to reach out friends the world is perishing and going to burn in hell we wouldnt wish that on our worst enemy. Love one another.
Many people find happiness, even fulfillment through religion. Many find it through christianity, buddhism, islam, scientology, etc. Many people find fulfillment helping out less fortunate, rescuing animals, or even through music, sports, and fitness.
The important thing is that you have found happiness, at a young age, when it takes many people several decades, if at all.
Good job, keep it up!
"the Mark of the Beast" is the enforcement of SUNday worship!
Vatican's "New World Order"
"Sunday laws must be enforced"- quoted as "principles contained in the Constitution" of the orginial organization, (then called The American Sabbath Union), cited in The Lord's Day Alliance, Twenty-fifth Report, page 5

to God is Mythology: You can find true happiness only in Jesus, He is the only one way to God, He is risen from death!
to lastdays:The only one I am worshiping is Jesus, not sundays!
Nobody understood what I wanted to say, but its ok. I want to say to those people who answered me that I am talking about Jesus wherever I am and have an opportunity,and I am praying that God will send people to my way so I can talk about Jesus, I am not just looking, because I know that people are going to hell without Jesus.
With all respect to your beliefs, please do not presume as you did above that I can't be truly happy without Jesus. The fact is, I am. Also, how would you account for all the happy people throughout the world who find true happiness in other religions? Are you stating that they can not be truly happy, yet somehow, only you are? Don't you find that statement preposterous?
Again, I did not ridicule your beliefs in my first post, rather I congratulated you on the happiness you found. Is that something an unhappy unfulfilled person would do?
As far as me going to hell, I guess I should worry about going to all the hells that exist for every other religion, too? Will you and I become friends in the Islamic hell since neither you nor I are Muslim?
Peace to you.
You wouldn't be here if you were truly happy, and now that you are, we are glad your here with us on Godvine. It is God's spirit that has drawn you here.
All other religions speak of works and earning a better life. The Bible is the only way, truth, and life. We tell you this because we love you and don't want you to go to the place you are heading.
Christianity stands alone in that there is nothing we can do to obtain God's Grace, It is a gift given to us through the sacrificial life, death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. If you would like to learn more about Christ see 180movie.com (33 min).
I will be posting you later, Lord Willing, Thanks Shirley
Oh sorry Myth, you might be a Ms. Myth. Which I think that might be the case since you write well and are a kind atheist.
maybe the question is not so much about happiness but about peace..do you have a peace that passes all understanding over everything in your life? I agree that you are probably here because you are seeking what Jesus has that no other religon has, which is a relationship.God bless you whether you believe in Him or not.
