A Christian is someone who knows the Lord. Let me repeat that. Christians know the Lord. Actually know Him. Experientially. They know a Person, not a lifestyle. Im talking about the God of the universe. They know Him.
I will now personalize this, but I am speaking on behalf of everyone who knows the Lord. I dont believe that He exists. I know Him. Personally. I have a living relationship with the Creator. I talk to Him through prayer, and He guides me though His Word and by His Holy Spirit. I have known the Lord since April 25, 1972, at 1:30 in the morning.
Perhaps Im not making myself clear, so I will try an analogy. Its like actually knowing someone. Personally. Its like having a friendship with Hima 24-hour-a-day, 365-days-a-year, intimate relationship. Therefore, it is self-evident that I cant live for a month being open to not knowing Him. All the so-called mistakes in the Bible cant change that fact. All the hypocrisy committed by religious people in the past cant change it. All the atheists on Gods earth saying that He doesnt exist doesnt change it in the slightest. Darwins theory cant change it. The storms of this life cant change it. If I get cancer and die a horrible death, it doesnt change the fact that I know the Lord. I not only know Him, but I love Him. I love Him with all of my heart, soul, mind, and strength. He is my life. Hes my joy, my Creator, my Savior, my Lord, and my God.
Hosea 2:20 I will betroth you to Me in faithfulness, And you shall know the Lord.
