It's actually too long a story to write all of here but the short of it is this: I was pack packing with some friends in Sequoia National Park and I was climbing on a cliff face. I was about thirty or fifty feet above all these rocks below me and the fall would have surely killed me. I was eighteen years old and God had been rammed down my throat so hard that I had just thrown Him up. I was in complete rebellion. Well, when I was stuck on that cliff face and about to die, all my rebellion melted away pretty quick and I prayed: "Please God, Help me get down from here without dying." In that moment, I swear this is true, it was as though every hand hold and foothold on the cliff face LIT UP -- I could suddenly see exactly where to put my hands and feet so I could get down.
: Lies People Tell remains neutral on the entire discussion about Why Do You or Do You Not Believe In God. But we have so enjoyed watching the participation of all the people who contributed to the last discussion on this topic that we have decided to broaden the forum so that people can follow along with the discussion. This forum will actually have some dates on it so that people can enter the discussion late and still be able to know what's going on. Even I got a little confused as I watched Ezekial and several believers go at it toe to toe.
: What I really respect and appreciate about that entire first conversation was that there seemed to be true open mindedness on the part of both believers and non-believers. And there was no name calling. Ezekial did get a little bit snide once or twice but that is to be forgiven because he brings a lot of vitality to the discussion.
: Welcome to everyone -- I hope you will dive into this new forum with the enthusiasm that you once dove in to the prvious forum.
