A literary blog I read titled Bibloklept daily-https://biblioklept.org/2019/07/02/bl
I filmed this video this morning. I thought I would share with the world my struggles to believe the recorded words of the Lord Jesus in the Gospels. How when I read the Gospels I can either put my faith in Christ and believe Him or I can go the way of Cain. After posting this video I lost a couple of subscribers. When subscribers decide to unsubscribe to my Youtube channel I often wonder why? Did I disappoint them by what I said or did not say? Did these unsubscribers find me boring? Did they make a decision not to believe in the Gospel of Christ?
I seek to be real in my videos in Youtube even though I am sure I come off being weird. But I consider myself a radical. I am a non-conformist. I only seek to follow the teachings of the Bible The Word of God. I do not love this world. I am seeking the City of God. "But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them" Hebrews 11:16.
" It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.
 And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
 Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve." John 6:63-71
