This came across my radar...Headline "Jon Steingard, the lead singer of the Christian rock band Hawk Nelson, is speaking out after announcing he no longer believes in God..... In reading further he said it had been a long time coming...Things just didn't feel right and he had trouble believing what the bible had to say. His not the first or last to say "You know what? I don't believe it."Or they just go their own way. Without having him sitting in front of me and me asking questions all I can do is speculate on what he does believe in if anything.We have all been there...Questions..a falling goers, atheist, gentle and jews...Is the Bible really the Word of God? So many hypocrites, it just doesn't FEEL right..If you intellectually look at it , you will always come up with IT doesn't make sense. What intelligent person can believe this....Its Greek has his hands all over it.Well alright then...Me speaking... I know in what I believe in , but me believing it , doesn't make it so.I believe Jesus Christ is who He says He is. The bible this young man doubts says "Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God"... In 1979ish I made a choice...and as the song goes..No turning back...have I doubted? for sure..questions? a Ton.But as for today regardless of how I feel or think...Jesus Christ is Still who He say He is...God is Still God.And Satan is still the engineer to the Hell-Bound Train.I have yet to meet an Atheists or an Agnostic who believes in a heaven or hell...the two offset one another. You die ? You die. That is it. There will be no you meeting up with your favorite dog in heaven. You get to the nitty gritty with them its all about judgement. You don't tell me what I'm doing is good or evil or higher authority. I am enlighten and a progressive...and your mindless if you believe in what that book says.Fair enough.Just for the record. My hope is not wishful thinking. My joy is not in just being happy, when my grandkids reach out with their arms and hold me I rejoice, when the breeze cools my face and I look up into the sky and see the red tail hawk catching that warm breeze and I see the trees clapping their hands, I am grateful. The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.As long as Me and Cindy Lou are around we will cry out with praise. We are not going to give the rocks a chance.I hope this young man will find the peace that passe's all understanding. And perhaps he can sing this song....with conviction. I can only imagine...Now go have good and Godly day....for what is a good day if it's not a Godly day.....wm
