"lets take this one step at a time"

I just realized today why it is I don't post on my blog too much. It takes too much time b/c I am trying to include too much info!
So, lets take this one step at a time.

Two weeks ago on high school night after the talk, I got to talk with two very different and neat guys.
The first guy sat down next to me and asked me how I was doing.
I praised the Lord for the obvious opportunity and told him that I was fine. We chatted for a bit about family and school and then I asked him about his experience at Skatechurch and what he believed in. He told me that he had been coming to Skatechurch for a while but that he he didn't know what he believed in.
So, I asked him the obvious question about where he thought he might end up when he died.
He said that he didn't know.
So I asked him if he thought he was a good person.
He said yeah.
I said that I figured that that was probably true if he only measures himself against his friends, family, or even the staff at Skatechurch.
So I asked him how he might rate against God.
"I dunno", he said.
So I led him through Gods righteous standard, the 10 commandments, and asked him after each one if he had ever broken one.
By the end of this wee conversation he admitted that he was not only a thief but an adulterer, a liar, and even a murderer!
He seemed surprised!
I told him that we all have this problem and that the place God has set aside for people like us is Hell.
I asked him if he wanted to go there.
He said "no".
I agreed.

In my future post I'll tell you what happened next!!!
