I don't have anything dogmatic to say about this. I was just thinking today how mysterious faith and spiritual sight are. I think of my own life, where between 18-22, I wanted NOTHING to do with God, His Church, His Bible, etc. People talked to me and I blew them off. One very dear friend got "saved" and came to witness to me. I spent over an hour listening to him and when he left, made a rather nasty comment about him to my brother. Then one day -- repentance. And now, when I look back on my life at that time, it looks so dark to me and I wonder how it was I found pleasure in things now that I see as evil.

I think of the many people who are witnessed to, hear preaching, read a passage from the Bible, and even know the Bible, yet have no faith. Talking with them is like talking to a dead person (yes, I do know the Bible says they are spiritually dead). It is so strange. I have talked about God's love - nothing. Men like the atheist Hitches, who rejected every thing, every reason.

I just, for what it is worth, find this mystery so......mysterious.
