    Long ago, there lived an Atheist who every chance he got
    talked down on God
    " Man, you are a fool to worship someone nobody can see. Almost
    a form of insanity" he said to his neighbor one day.
    " I know there is no God that is why I do not pray."
    His neighbor just shook his head as he said " Some day you will see
    because at his feet you shall kneel."
    The Atheist just laughed as he said " Man, you got to be crazy."
    He went to work the next day. Noticed a co-worker at the
    intersection. They exchanged pleasantries as they proceeded on
    their way. Suddenly, out of nowhere the Atheist car was struck
    head-on as he saw flashes of his life appear before him. Smiles of
    his children along with the the heart warming love of his wife.
    At once he knew he did not want to die along so tragically without
    saying Goodbye to all the ones he loved so dearly.
    Loudly He screamed " Lord, Have mercy on my soul. For you I never
    really knew. Oh Lord, Help me Please" as he lost consciousness.
    Fearing the darkness which overtook him was his fate. For he never
    tried to know God or Jesus. Never invited either into his life until
    death stared him in the eyes.
    As he walked through a narrow tunnel so dark that He stumbled
    several times feeling like some part of it resembled his life without
    Faith. Suddenly, someone took his hand as he walked blindly
    coming to the end of the tunnel shone a light so bright as people
    walked toward it. He hesitated with downcasted eyes feeling
    unworthy to be among the others. He heard a voice saying
    " Come Forth" as he continued. Finally He looked up into the
    eyes of the Lord who was still holding his hand as he encouraged
    him on. He gasped as he said " You are the Lord. You are real.
    All these years I let slip away because you I didn't believe existed."
    Jesus just smiled at him as the warmth of Love radiated so deeply
    within as Jesus said " My child, An Atheist is no different from other
    souls. Searching and not knowing of me until they are blind no more
    as I lift the veil truth surge through them. I lift them on high through
    my words as they save other souls through my righteousness. Son,
    You are of me and I am of you-One Soul of the Father.
