Just now I was browsing through facebook when I accidentally clicked into this guy's profile.. Was so shocked.
He was a guy from INTI and Nilai CMC, was once so active in church and cell groups.. then graduated some time earlier..
He has now turned towards Satanism, and hates Christians.
His posts now are all about Satanism: quotes, satanic songs etc, and describes Christians as hypocrites.
Stalked further and found out that apparently someone in the church has hurt him and let him down.
I never really knew him (indeed i've never talked to him before), but I thought he was one of those "perfect youth Christians with strong faith hope and joy in the Lord".
It just shows that I'm really a person who never looks beyond the surface.

This is so sad that it's really difficult to find words to say it.. 1st time crying over this kind of thing.
All I can do is pray, because I really don't know what else I can do for him... his friends have already said in their comments all that can be said... and yet he won't listen.
He thinks he has grown up... he thinks.
What's the use of growing up if you're growing towards the wrongest direction ever?

This is why it's so important to pray, study the Bible, 灵修 each day... You have to turn your eyes on God, build a relationship with Him, have true faith in Him and feel His presence each day... Not only mix with the people in the church, coz it's not Churchism, it's Christianism. That's the mistake he made...

This has taught me something as well... so many of the people in church which I thought had a very mature spiritual life... how many of them are truly mature? how many of them only appear to be so? Caring and praying for each other is really more important than it seems. I mean like truly seriously caring. Not only making sure they're in church.

Someone has told me before that this world is not as perfect as I think... not all people are as good as I think. Not everything that seems wrong, is really wrong. But this is what's important. To be able to differentiate wrong from right. Lying is wrong. Hating is wrong. Going against any of the teachings of the Bible is wrong. As Christians, we are called to be the light of the world. The light in this world of darkness, where black tries to pollute white and make it gray. To quote lyrics from the song People Need the Lord: "We are called to take His light to a world where wrong seems right. What could be too great a cost for sharing Life with one who's lost?"

Matthew 18:3 And said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."

We really have to become like children. A child that is obedient. A child with a steadfast and pure faith in God. A child that does not know how to lie "for the sake of everyone". In the eyes of children, in the eyes of the child that we once were, the difference between wrong and right is as clear as black and white. We don't have to complicate things.

I like this song very much. It applies not only to kids, but also to all Christians.. as we are growing in Him each day. Longing after Him each day, inviting Him to be king in our lives each day, committing all our words and actions to Him. Never forgetting Him, in all times, in all situations.
