I've got a question for Last Man Standing

Actually, a few. You're always trying to turn us onto God, but who turned YOU onto him? Anybody? Or was it God himself? Now, if it was God himself, wouldn't that lead you to believe that only he has such power, and you're wasting your energy by trying to do what only he is capable of?

Aren't you taking on a responsibility which God has never assigned you? Isn't it true that no man can lead another to God, that the only way a person comes to God is if God first enters his heart through a power which only God possesses?

In short, who do you think you are, and what you're capable of? Do you think God smiles favorably upon you for your efforts? Why would he if only he is capable of drawing someone near to him?

We as Christians are supposed to spread the good news of the Lord, so I believe LMS has God smiling, assuming he's not a parody account.

Good question, I need to publish my testimony one day.
In a nut shell, I was buried literally in sins. So many addictions ranging from sex, porn, video games (close to 400 games), ego maniac to the extreme, no respect for anyone or anything, compulsive disorder, I can go on and on... Doing religious things out of routine, not because I wanted to.

It started off bit by bit losing those attachments, but what I think did it for me, is reading Divine Mercy in My Soul by Saint Faustyna Kowalski, and praying the Divine Mercy Chaplets. Then things start to develop, all addictions gone, disorders gone...
I feel no lust, calm as a lamb, extreme peace, no stress. Experienced some miracles things, signs, very emotional:)

My life before was like a night now it is a day:)
God literally brought me out from the death, literally as I was walking dead

You still have that, if you ask me. Always touting your beliefs' superiority while shrugging off everything everyone else says.

Yes, things I experience bring me so much joy:)

This is the point I'm trying to make. I don't know a single convert who became one through the efforts of others. Something happenned in their lives, an awakening which can only be accounted for by the grace of God. Do you see? Just bombarding people with your call to faith isn't going to have any effect if God's grace isn't present.

Offhand, if you enjoy reading people's testimonies, you might enjoy Confessions by Augustine. He came from a life of debauchery as well. Like you, he awakened to God's presence and became a new man as a result.

Then God must love boring us to death. Why would he rely on such an ineffective means of entering people's hearts when his power is infinite, and in the snap of a finger could remove the scales from all our eyes to make believers of us all?

I am a Catholic, see what has happened to me.
For other people who do not know, one needs to preach the good news of salvation.
If missionaries did not go out, how would these people convert? Faith needs to be shared.

God does not stop with the effort to convert, as you know He would leave 99 sheep and go after the 1 that got lost.
God Bless

Word barfs don't convert anyone. Neither does ignoring other people.
