Wow! I have rarely seen a more succinct and perfect explanation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you Robert for getting the grass down to where this cow can eat it…;-)

I took your advice on board,and what you said. I feel at peace for now. It`s not very good living by your self,and have anxiety state. I also get treatment off the doctor for Hypertension,and I take a 50 mg tablet this slows your heart down. I also take Allopurinol 300 MG tablet for Gout,and I have Arthritis of the lower spine,and I am addicted to Valium through no fault of my own. I am coming up to 65 yrs in December. I think thats about it. I can assure you Robert that I will never give up on God no matter how hard it gets. This is all knew to me, since the Holy Spirit dropped me off hear.
I was brought up a strict RC,and the things I have found out on this site is amazing. When you are a Catholic you more or less get the Pope rammed down your neck,and what he says goes. I am away from all that now,and I feel closer to God,Jesus,and the Holy Spirit through your teaching,and Jack`s. I don`t think a Catholic knows what a bible is.
I am still trying to find a layperson to help me. My social worker is trying to find someone. I don`t treat this site has a website it`s like going to church. I get the direction to go in,or the answer`I feel much better after I have been told things that I know come from You and Jack. It`s about over 2 yrs since I found this site. I was on two others before this,and all they tried to do was to see who was more clever than you.
Again Thanks Robert for your words of wisdom. God Bless.

How can I find God I feel so alone.
Since coming to this site about 3 years ago I did feel alone,and I was at the bottom of a very dark pit.
It was about 2 years that the Holy Spirit(It could have been no one else) came to me,and I could see everything that was wrong,and the words coming out of my mouth were very profound I was like a Pastor with the answers which I never evan heard of. I was on another website which some of them where just trying to get Browny Points,and I could see straight through them. I had enough,and left and the Holy Spirit dropped me off hear. The very big difference was that I found you got help without being ridiculed and that the people where very sincere in trying to help. While being on this sight I have learned more in those 2 yrs than in my entire life. I don`t think of it has a website it`s more like a church to me,and I have learnt things that no catholic priest has told me. I still havn`t found a religious group,because hear in the NE of England nobody is interested in religion any more. If you Robert or Jack were near by I would be at your church every week,and more. I have more or less repeated has the post above. God bless you Robert.

Great article, thanks! A couple thoughts…

As you so well explained, even the notion of the thought “How Can I Find God?” is fundamentally flawed. We don’t find Him, He works IN us to bring us to Him (spiritually). The notion of “how can I find God?” results in a perspective that He’s “out there”, when he’s really found inside.

I think there’s an opportunity for us to use clearer words when talking about how people reject God, which may result in people more easily accepting and receiving Him in a truer spirit. Many people talk about “turning your back on God” or “turning away”, which obviously reinforces a notion that God is external to us. As we know, it’s really a heart and mind issue – along the lines of “closing our hearts to God” or “building a wall in our minds from God”. I think the words we use have tremendous power over our perceptions, and we should be deliberate about the analogies we use.

Hi Michael,
Thanks for reading and commenting. You are absolutely right about the careful use, and choice, of our words. If we simply took a bit longer to think before we spoke we could communicate so much better. Thanks for pointing that out. I find myself using phrases such as “resisting God” or “rejecting His lordship” or something along those lines. It makes it clear that such a person is actively in rebellion against a Holy God who is calling him or her to repent. Thanks again, Michael. God bless you.
Yours in Christ,
Robert

Luk December 23, 2013 at 5:02 pm

I like your article. I red it couple times but I have something to ask you but before that I want to tell yu something. About three years ago I came to a camp and one of the days they asked if anyone wants to stay and give their life’s tones us we all prayed for each other and then I came with some other people and I gave my life to Jesus but I never really repented I was still addicted to pornography. Couple months ago I got baptized but I never stopped watching pornography. So I have a question what do you think of my situation?

Robert December 24, 2013 at 5:26 pm

Hi Luk,
Thanks for reading and commenting. Habitual sin can have a strong hold on people. Pornography is one of the most difficult sins for a man to deal with. But, I have good news; God is bigger than any sin there is. And He loves us more than we can imagine.

I am always very careful when giving any kind of advice on this website, since I don’t really know you or the minute details of your situation I want to be very careful with what I say and how I say it.

Having said that, your comment (and question) raises a few points I’d like to address.

First, when we truly give our lives to Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit indwells us, strengthening us to be able to withstand temptation and to not sin (I Corinthians 10:13). However, we still must resist the temptation, which is our part. If you are still willfully sinning, it may be that you have never made Jesus the Lord of your life in the first place. Luk, the first thing you need to do is to fall on your knees before God and make sure that you have given your life to Him. In your heart, Jesus Christ (and your relationship with Him) must be the most important thing in your life.

Second, you need to distance yourself from pornography. If you have DVDs, VHS, etc., you need to destroy them. Don’t just throw them away, as they may fall into the hands of someone else and cause damage to them, DESTROY them. If you have cable channels that show pornography, you have to do something to avoid watching it. Find a trusted Christian friend, whom you trust, and confide in him. Notice I said ‘him’, it is not wise for a male and a female to intimately share this kind of struggle.

Luk, the meaning of ‘repentance’ is to turn away from your sin. If you say that you have repented but, in your heart, you don’t determine to truly turn from sin, this sin will continue to tempt you, and drag you down, until you truly set your heart on removing it from your life.

Luk, the Bible promises us that we do not have to be slaves to sin (Romans 6) if our hearts are truly given to God. God bless you, Luk. I will keep you in my prayers. Please let me know how it is going with you.

Yours in Christ,
Robert
