Before the revelation of UR was given to me, and I came to this board, if a non-christian asked me about God (not that it happened much) but I was prepared with
You're a sinner, Jesus came died, rose again, say this prayer and you go to heaven, ignore it you go to H E double hockeysticks. Very simple straightforward.
The other day I had a patient that came in and needed a good word that day, she asked me to talk about God. (A couple months ago, I shared with her a little of the glorious hope). When she asked the other day it threw me off guard first off, and I went into think-mode (definitely not Spirit mode). I was tongue tied, because when I went to extract the abc-->xyz file, it didn't seem right (obviously the hell part is wrong). I'm still so "gotta hit the big points, get her to say the magic words, I may not get another chance". But it seems like saying that without the dying to self part is false advertising.
I spoke with her about the Fathers love, a little of dying to self, a little of the mystery (Christ in you). But while I was talking, it was not flowing (or I wasn't allowing the spirit to flow).
How do you give the abc's while still being faithful to the whole truth?
