I told him that 10 out of 10 people eventually die, and the fact that he is still alive and talking to me right now could be a sign that God is trying to get his attention. Unfortunately all my pleads fell on deaf ears, so I had to leave him in God's hands and walk away."

He knew he needed to repent and place his faith in Christ, otherwise he would end up in hell. I asked him when he was going to do this, and he said right now! I explained the importance of feeding on the scriptures, and getting hooked into a biblical church. We shook hands, and I promised I was going to pray for him."
"I told him that by his own admission he was not a good person, but he kept justifying his actions by saying God is forgiving. It was obvious to me that he didn't want to talk anymore, so I implored him to read the first three chapters of Romans before he went to sleep tonight. O Lord, please remove the blinkers from Levi's eyes!"

Then she said "Yeah, and my baby sister has a sickness and is going to die". I just sat there with my mouth open, trying to hold back the tears."
"You know that you do not meet God's expectations. You know you are getting judged for breaking His laws. But your self-righteousness is preventing you from submitting to His authourity. Therefore you are in danger of incurring His wrath on Judgement Day. I don't want that to happen. "
