We’ve all been there. You’re driving down the road in your Durango when all of a sudden you get carjacked, but the carjacker doesn’t want your car or even your wallet. He wants your soul. So you pull off to the side of the road for a test a faith. You’re on your knees with a gun to the back of your head and it’s time to decide how sure you are about the existence of God. Be careful how you answer because not only will it damn your soul to hell, but it will also result in your kidnapper playing a game of Russian roulette for his eternal destiny.
Clearly this is what Jesus had in mind when he said “if you deny me in before men I will deny you before my Father in heaven.”
Maybe we should start incorporating this scenario as a weekly activity in children’s church. That way we’re ready for it when we get older.
