A literary blog I read titled Bibloklept daily-

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.

"[63] It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
[64] 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.
[65] And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.
[66] From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
[67] Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
[68] Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.

[69] And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.
[70] Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
[71] 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
