Tonight I was at a festival and I start talking with a woman and her husband. She asks me if I'm a christian, I say yes. She says are you filled with the holy spirit, I say yes, she asks how I know, I tell her by the fruits. She asks me if I'm led by the Holy Spirit, she asked me a few more questions, every question was accusatory in tone, she asked if I spoke in tongues, I said no, she says, "oh well you don't have to speak in tongues to be saved anyway", I was getting the hint that she was more spiritual than me and no matter what I told her she had a better relationship. She would one up me when I would answer yes. She asked me if I heard HS voice audibly I told her once, which was when God revealed UR to me, and thats where the conversation led.
I was hesitant, because of the above mentioned tone and such. Well I told them what I believed, needless to say they were taken aback. I tried to share, not fight, its so hard when they start giving the eye rolls, the here we go another heretic. I gave a few of the basic UR scriptures, I got a little excited, probably warred a little more than I should have. She starts turning her head and speaking in tongues, while I'm quoting 1 cor 15:22-all in all. She tells me theres not something spiritually right with me, and she'll pray for me, in that backhanded way, and that they should leave. I told them I'd love to fellowship with them, and search the Bible about this. She says, I'm led by the holy spirit.
They were frazzled, I was frazzled, it was definitely not what I was expecting tonight, and I'm pretty sure they didn't expect to encounter me. It is so hard not to go to battle, but I see the futility in it, again. maybe next time I won't allow my flesh to rise up and fight, but let my spirit sow seeds, thats my prayer, and that this couple would hear what I shared, and actually test the spirits.
Anyway, at least I got my heart rate up for a bit, who needs exercise when you've got super christians roaming. Oh yeah, and I can really see now why people hate christians. (I don't hate these folks, I feel sad for them, and hope that they will email me and find the light of the victorious gospel.)
