I agree with you rookie, however, don't forget there will be a multitude of tribulation saints.

We cannot even begin fathom God's love, or His love

My immediate family, Praise God, are all saved. I do have some nephews that refuse to come to Christ so I understand what you mean. That is we must do  .... pray for them and given the opportunity, witness to them.

Although all that seek Him will find Him..........If someone truely wants a relationship with God they will find it.

Still though...........some hearts are hardened Cry
Brother, I know and I agree. Also remember the Tribulation saints, that will come to Jesus. It is our seeds we are planting, that the Lord will reap.

Don't be too quick to judge guys.  Remember, we don't know their hearts.

This is true, but those that have stated outright to me that they belive in the higher power, just not the bible............

I pray they get it figured out soon.

Luk 6:43  For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
Luk 6:44  For every tree is known by his own fruit. For of thorns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes.
Luk 6:45  A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.

Don't try to get them to buy all the trappings of the Christian religion.  It is Jesus to which you want to lead them.  While you and I realize the Bible is our "guide book"  accepting everything written in there is not required for salvation.  Share with them what Jesus has done in your life.  Perhaps you have friends that can do the same.  After all a "witness" is one who testifies to what he has seen or experienced.

Stop fearing and start believing that your prayers are being heard by God, even before you are done praying.  Smiley

Specifically my father in law has seen first hand what Jesus has done for his daughter formerly known by them as the devil child.

He has commented frequently how good "I" have been for her to with I have to give all the credit and praise to Christ.

I didn't do it and we all know that.

He is the one that tells me he believes in God but not Christ or the bible.

I have asked how he can believe in God but not his word, and he insists that the whole book written by men and not to be trusted.

He had a bad experience with a church that got into his finances and told him to tithe. He didn't like that at all and has steered clear of God in favor of his higher power.

I tithe because I believe and all I have is by God. It is the least I can do is to obey.

I love the man like a father and we have friendly talks about faith fairly frequently. He is seeking I jus don't know how to present the answers.

I pray silently the whole time we talk that the spirit lead me and speak through me. I pray still that the spirit soften his heart to the word.

I know God hears.  Grin

I know that if it is His will for my father in law to come to Christ.......then he will.

It is God's desire for all to be saved. He will not force anyone though. Church buildings are made of and by men. We should not allow others to come between us and God. We are told to tithe according to our heart not according to what mens doctrines tell us to do.

It is God's desire for all men to come to Christ, however we know that God has given man free will to choose as they may. However that does not mean that because we may not see it or know it that they won't be saved. We don' know people's hearts the way God does. But we have the faith and the ability to pray, withor giving up. Who knows, we might find people in heaven we would never thought would make it, and we might be missing some we were sure would. All we can do is keep loving them, praying for them, and gently leading and teaching them.
