Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: BE YE THEREFORE WISE as serpents, AND HARMLESS as doves. Matthew 10:16. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this THE JUDGMENT: Hebrews 9:27. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: NO MAN COMETH unto the Father, BUT BY ME. John 14:6. For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but UNTO US which are SAVED IT IS THE POWER OF GOD. 1 Corinthians 1:18. Please read carefully. To the spiritually dead man, to the sinner, to the unbeliever, the Bible is nothing but foolishness with nothing to offer the sinner. To the Saved man, the Believer, the Follower of Christ, the Bible is Life with Life Giving Springs of Living Water. "And never the twain shall meet". The concept of Saved, and Sinner, are total polar opposites to each other and the two will never agree on anything, UNTIL THE HOLY SPIRIT BRIDGES THAT GAP, and shows, reveals, and makes Known to the sinner his Need For Christ.  There is NO HOPE for a lost man until the Holy Spirit draws him to the Truth. ALL men WILL be brought to the Truth of their need for Salvation through Christ and His Shed Blood. To know your plight is a good start, but the sinner must finish that call to Salvation by Repenting of his sins, and with the leading of the Holy Spirit, turn from his wicked ways. God won't MAKE anyone Love Him. But if that sinner has even a tiny Heart's Cry for Christ, Christ will meet him and guide his steps into The Truth, unto Salvation, for Eternity in the Heavenly's. Here's my point. The Holy Spirit will Guide ANYONE hungry for More, all the Way into the Fullness of Christ. That is the point where Christ becomes their EVERYTHING, and they no longer need to go back to the world for ANYTHING. When Christ becomes your All, the world becomes your nothing. The Christian will insist on, and persist in, Everything Christ, as they Grow in CHRISTLIKENESS, and will, Be Blessed.
