Words of Comfort: Blind.

“Listening to relatives who have been deluded to think there is an afterlife is the hardest thing in the world. It's terribly embarrassing. They cry their heart out when you just won't accept their nonsense.” Bjarte Bjørkum

It is a wonderful truth of Scripture that the heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord. He turns it any way He wishes. The skeptic thinks he is at this site to harass Christians. That’s what he believes. In truth, he (or she) is here because of the faithful prayers of those who love them and want them to be saved from a very real Hell.

Those of you who think that you made your own decision to come here may be quick to say that none of your relatives are Christians, and that no one is praying for you. You are wrong. We pray, and that’s why you are here. The Bible says that you are blind, alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in you because of the blindness of your heart (see Ephesians 4:18-20). When you come to Christ and God opens your eyes, you will look back at your steps and see that is true. God, in His great kindness, brought you here.
