PRETEND WE ARE IN VIET NAM

Pretend with me, I am from the Viet Nam era.

Let’s say I was drafted and had to go to Viet Nam.

Let’s say Linda and I were married and I had to leave her in the states.

Let’s say after my term in Viet Nam, I wrote Linda a letter and said,

Honey I will be home by Christmas.

Let’s say, Linda writes me a return letter and asks me to volunteer for another year in the combat zone, and she wants me to go to the front lines and get killed so she could get the insurance money?

Well, one of two things happened--- she didn’t love me before I left; or she has found another while I was gone.

IF she loved me and had been faithful to me, she would have been praying for my soon return. as a full partner.


May I enlarge this, to say if you don’t love God, if you have been unfaithful, if you give 10% because it is forced, then there is a heart issue that you need to overcome.

Do I give because it is an issue of I HAVE TO...?

If I do, in my opinion, there is something wrong.
