Since I have here on Life with Lynnie (LwL) a list of blogs I read, you are aware I read blogs. Of various kinds. Even though I read some blogs, I do not have each one listed.
Some blogs I follow are Christian. Others, are not.
Some refer to God regularly, while some are more about travel. Usually, by secular people. Although from time to time, a Christian writer/traveller will come to view.
One writer seemed to be knowledgeable about the Bible.
I keep reading the blog, not just because he's a good writer and I enjoy reading of his travels. But, I also wondered if he was a closet Christian. Meaning, someone who considers themselves a believer, but who doesn't speak up for Christ.
Since I only recently found this blog, I am in the mode of catching up on past entries. I went back to the beginning, and have been reading each and every entry. Yes... it can be done!
While I wasn't shocked, I must admit I was disappointed at something I read.
Just to set the stage of understanding, this fellow had met a small group of young men, belonging to a religious sect that is heavy into obedience. Yes, they spoke with this author about the Bible.
The blog author made a comment on this entry, "They asked all the right questions and were astounded that an unbeliever knew the Bible as well as they."
It confirmed to me that the blog writer was indeed, not saved. He admitted it.
He admitted that he was an unbeliever. Openly, to the group of males, and by writing on his blog, to the world. For all to see, read and understand.
It amazes me that there are people with knowledge. Knowledge, meaning head knowledge. But, without the relationship with Jesus Christ, that God demands.
To me, the sad part is that people who have the head knowledge, without faith, will perish.
There are many verses that support the comment I just made, in both the Old and New Testament portions of the Bible that have similar meanings. But, I chose to use Proverbs 14:12, "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death."
Be sure that I prayed for this fellow blog writer.
From his writing and from his feelings directed about the homeless, etc., readers can tell that this fellow cares for people. But, without Christ in his heart, his future is not something I would wish on anyone.
I will continue to pray, that this fellow and others like him, who have read and acknowledge God's word, who have the capacity of understanding, will come to faith, by trusting in my Lord, Jesus Christ. I pray it was always part of God's plan.
Remember that salvation is simple. "...believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved...", Acts 16:31.
Until next time...
