Re: The Matrix is REAL!! There are no "Good Nations" versus "Bad Nations"
In some cases, salvation seems to be a slow process. In my case, it was. Some, praise God, can be immediate. Places like this site may not "immediately" lend itself to "instantaneous" salvation--but helps add to the building blocks of understanding. Much depends on the condition of the persons heart.
It is the Holy Spirit who converts the person--not because people "will it". People are only the "farmers" casting out the seeds. Providing the "information". Its God who harvests the effort. But the soil must be prepared to take the seed and yield the crop. Unless the soil has the right nutrients, preparation, the crop will fail.
I was convinced that God was real because of the scientific evidence and knowledge disclosed by the Bible before it was even discovered by man. And if this was known in the Scripture first, then Jesus was real too. But it took me awhile to get there.
Too me, I'm not sure that people who read this become "saved". Maybe they will and maybe they won't...but that's not up to us anyway. This site is only one of many of the vast "fields" to be tended. But maybe, just maybe, the site could add one bit of information, one crumb of insight that helps in the final decision, the tipping point in the final recognition of Truth.
Is this forum as effective as gospel tracks, preaching, one on one discussion, etc? I don't know. A person's heart must be soften to accept the message irrespective of the format. And since it is the Holy Spirit who converts, only He knows.
