i realy havent been looking. been to buisy. working crazy hrs at work. funny thing though is right now i am working to help save a soul before its to late. a friend of mine from a interactive vidio game i play over the internet is fighting cancer right now. other than being a non believer, he is not so different from me. im trying to help him find god, but also trying not to push to hard. i cant aford to mess this up, by pushing to hard and have him reject the message. if i do there wont be time to undo that dammage, so i am proceading with extreem caution, so as not to push him ferther way. so far i have made it well known to him that i am a christan. that i would love to talk to him about god, and hopfully find god, but that i will not force him to talk about it. please pray for me. that god will give me the wisdome to know just have hard to push this. so that i dont make a mistake that could cost a man his soul. please also pray for him, that he will accsept the message, and jesus as his savior. and aslo that once exepting god that he beat the cancer. this has also kept me buisy

Hope this helps with bringing Christ to him.I know I have learned from this myself>>>>>>>>>
The Romans Road
The Romans Road is a group of Bible verses from the book of Romans that are used to help people to better understand Salvation, and to lead people to Christ. (Romans 3:23, 5:8, 6:23, 10:9-10, 10:13)
· The First thing you have to realize is that YOU ARE a sinner. -Romans 3:23 states, "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God."
· We are ALL sinners. But, God loves us and He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross for our sins.
· Next realize that God Loves YOU. Romans 5:8 says, "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."* There is no greater love than that someone would lay down their life for a friend. That's what Christ did for us.
· Without Him, you're literally doomed. Romans 6:23, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ."
Yes, the wages of sin is death, but God has given us the privilege of Eternal life in Christ. It's a gift, you don't have to work for it, just ASK! What a gift!!!

· Confess your sins.... Romans 10:9-10, "That if you confess with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved" Romans 10:13, "For Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord, will be saved."
That's all you have to do! (Call on the name of Jesus and ask him into your heart, and you will be saved from the eternal pits of Hell!
THE PRAYER.... If you honestly, in your heart, believe everything that was said here, pray this prayer:
Dear Jesus, I KNOW I am a sinner. I know that you were sent by God to die on the cross, to save me from my sins. I ask you now to forgive me of the sins I have committed, and come into my heart. Thank you for dying on the cross for me. From this day forward, I will follow your will and serve you. AMEN.
If you prayed that Prayer, and believe, welcome to the kingdom of God! We wish you would share this with a friend or family member, and we would love to hear from you.
What Next?
Help and Make sure that person will:
· Find a Church. Now you will need to find a church, so you can join the family of God. They will be there to lead you down the path of Christian living. They are not only spiritual guides, but also can be very close friends. They will always be there when you need them.
· Get a Bible. A Bible is one of the most important tools for a Christian. I would recommend an NLT (New Living Translation) or the NIV (New International Version). A study Bible is the best. If you would rather read a more literal translation of the Bible, you should get a NASB (New American Standard) or KJV (King James Version).
· Pray daily. Praying is another important factor. Pick a time that everyday; you have quiet time to pray everyday. Such as before you go to bed, or when you get up in the morning. See our “Article Drawing Near to the Heart of God” and others on our Discipleship Channel for more information and helps!
Whatever approach you use, never argue or condemn the other person's beliefs. Focus on God's love for the person, Jesus' death on the cross for our sins, His resurrection, and the person's need to make a commitment to follow Christ. Invite the person to actually pray with you and commit his or her life to Christ. >>>>>>>>>>for his soul,dont let the devil win.Tell him Get the behind me,for I am a child of GOD and dont have time for you.This is what I say when ever the devil is trying to get on me. Prayers for you and him

all good info once i can get him to believe, or even think that there is a strong chance that god is real. but if i lead off with this, it will just push him away. right now i think i just need to keep things up the way i am. nice and slow. he seems to be getting a little more reseptive to the messsage. luckly there is another christain in our group, who also seems to be trying to help as well. i think that once i get a chance i will talk to him about working together to try to get our friend saved.

Hunt NH... Prayer was sent for you buddy! I think that's a wonderful thing you are doing. Just stick with it and ask for God's guidance from Him. He will help you with what to say, when to say it and how to say it. Too many times, when I'm witnessing, even on here, I say things that come out wrong or confusing. Talk to God and ask Him to help you through the whole ordeal. One thing that I think is 100% true is that you were meant to be the 1 person in this guy's life to speak to him about God.
DON'T GIVE UP! Trust in the Lord your God.

James 1:2-8
