He's kind of hard to explain but he's easy to love.
I have spent many years trying to get to him from a christian standpoint but have been unsuccessful on many fronts.
I take my victories where I can.
We're just two guys who were both in the service together and have seen the best and the worst that mankind can do. I won't go into it any further than to say that I accepted Jesus in a very upfront way. He did not.
I'm not saying that he doesn't believe. I'm just saying that he doesn't openly profess it like I do. That's not bragging. It's just a statement of fact.
I know that he believes because he's very open about the fact that he does believe. He's just not the "go to church on Sunday" kind of guy.
One day during a conversation, he told me that he watches a program on Sunday morning which is hosted by a man called Joel Olsteen. He said he began watching it with his former wife. He said it was really good and that if I wanted to watch it with him, I was welcome.
So I started going over there to his house every Sunday morning. He's always up and faithfully watches the sermon.
I get the feeling that he's an everyman. He needs a home group. Someone to talk to and bounce ideas off of. If that's what it takes, then I'll be his home group.
Let's face it. The early christians met daily from house to house...not in cathedrals.
So every Sunday morning from Jacksonville North Carolina, you can hear the words of the nostalgic Monkees song, sung by two old warriors.
"I'm a believer..."
