10/22/10 Louis, about 18
I ran into a young man named Louis at a busy street corner this Friday evening. He said he does not believe in God or eternal life, that when we die there will be nothing more. He did seem a little concerned about the year 2012 and the end of the world, but has had no religious upbringing and doesn't own a Bible nor has he read one. I talked about how eternity and how it will be much longer than our short time here on earth no matter how long we live. He started showing interest, saying "I never thought about it like that before", but he quickly became distracted by all the street activity around us. I gave him Mark Cahill's book - "One Second After You......Die" which answers a lot of questions about God's existence, science and evolution, the accuracy of the Bible and what happens after we die. Louis seemed interested in reading it; I hope he does.
