    Sure. The only problem you risk is not getting saved in time (before you die). Then it's too late. I think you either answer when He calls you or you don't. You either say yes or no. He is a gentleman and will not push. But if you say no and die, it's hell for eternity. I'm not willing to take that chance. Plus, I like this life SOOO much better than my old life.

    Not for the standard church-issued. I like the New Believer's Bible better. It's an awesome read with lots of sidebars and different topics inserted on many pages. It's great for seekers, new kids, and everyone else.

    We don't get miles but I think we get smiles. From Him.

    You mean you gave up the cars and flying and golf like voluntary?
    or you had a revelation or some thing?

    I got bored with all the stuff. Wanting it is half the fun. Getting it is not so fun. And insuring it is really not fun.

    I had everything I ever wanted but there was still a hole in my soul that only He could fill. Once I got saved, I didn't want stuff anymore. I wanted more of Him.

    I still find driving a Ferrari delightful. And a good game of golf in a paradise-like setting is fun. But NOTHING compares to the promise I have in Him.

    Nope. Don't believe? Fine with me. Not so fine with Him.

    That's a weird thing to say.
    I have somewhere between 5,000 and 6,000 (at last count, about two years ago), and most of my money goes on books.

    Nah.
    I got asked once how much I read so I totalled it for a thirty day period -
    82 magazines and twenty-five books.
    I read fast.
    Correction, other people read slow. I read at a normal pace.

    What was your old life, if I may ask?

    So God has a mouth and a penis?

    Hm... :shrug:

    How delightfully pornographic.
    Tell you what. I'll let you save me; you don't even have to spend all that cash on flowers and bibles and stuff for me. Just let me fill some of those holes for you.

    Whenever I'm not doing anything that actually prevents reading.
    I tried and I can't read and ride a bike at the same time (took two accidents to convince me of that

    ). But while eating, walking, watching TV etc.
    And usually I put an hour or two aside for nothing but reading.

    It is a question i have thought about many times, i guess i believe more than
    not, the trouble is there are no facts to go on, just ones own deep down feelings.
    Would you have been swayed one way or the other independantly, or did it take involvment with others?

    or charity stuffs.

    My old life was more about me. Personal growth, goals, etc. When I made it all about Him, it was 100% better. I had and was everything I ever dreamed of. It wasn't enough. Once the hole was filled, life really began. The day I was saved is my real birthday. The past was fluff.

    Many of the flowers are gifts. I do get good prices from the florists, but not that good. Even when they know they're going to someone in the hospital, they still charge you.

    Christianity isn't all about facts. It's more about faith. My personal testimony is that I had it all but had nothing. God used people to get me back to Him. I was a Catholic but didn't have the personal relationship getting born-again gives you.
