I dunno, Tea Party. There are passages in Revelation, for example, that illustrate the idea that "even then" they won't repent. I think the only ones who will be on their knees are those who are ALREADY on their knees. Remember, Jesus spoke of a time when "night comes when no one can work." I think the doors are being shut. If you aren't in by now, the chances of you ever getting in are getting slimmer and slimmer as the Day draws near.

I wasn't meaning they will repent when they see him at the judgement, but Phil 2:9-11 does say every knee shall bow and it does say that even the lost will appear before Him and will recognize Him as Lord. I meant that they will believe if they die in their sins because sometime they will see HIM. I do recognize the times we are in. The first time I read Revelations when I was 15 it scared me silly, not so much now..and I am IN, have been since I was 5, a little Epsicopalian kid going to a Methodist Sunday School and learning In the Garden and wishing I could walk with Him. Took me years since to learn about that walk.
I didn't realize that hymn had a name, just called it He Walks With Me and He Talks With Me, til I was an adult.

As a Christian, it can be difficult to reconcile all the evil that happens in the world with an all knowing, all powerful loving God who could stop it if He wants, but chooses not to do so. If our hearts break for the innocent children who were senselessly murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, how can a God who loves us not feel the same way? If any of us had known what Adam Lanza was going to do, we would have done anything in our power to stop him, so why didn't God? All too often we tend to quote...
