Great post. I've been thinking about this same subject. Excited to exchange more ideas on this. Right on, my soul brother.

I was talking to a friend today about this verse where Jesus puts the scriptures where they belong in regards to Himself.

John 5:39-40
You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.

As to the question they asked about your brother.. heh. Well... I think human beings have to have something simple to hold on to. A formula. An action.. if they DO it then they are redeemed. They needed to know if your brother said the magic words. Funny thing is this is Anti-Christ in my humble opinion.

I love that Sampson (I am not drawing a parallel between him and your brother.. but between him and the 'unsaved') made it into Hebrews in the middle of that list that could have been titled "The Badasses of the Faith". I mean Sampson was kind of a disaster. A womanizer who eventually had to commit suicide as his last act on Earth.

I wonder if he was saved...

1991? i was a sophomore in high school. just saying.

"oh, was he a christian?" -- rude.

"The good book deserves more respect than an approach that allows a man to attain some high plain of certainty when in actuality it is a book of faith and should be approached with said faith and humility." -- amen.

p.s. you and cheryl need to come to portland, soon. i'm not yelling, i'm just saying.
