1/27/12 Vince, about 18
On my way home from work today I stopped at a park where I met a serious looking older teen on his way to the basketball courts. I asked if he had a minute to answer an interesting question - "What do you think happens after we step off this earth - what happens next after this life?" He - Vince - looked at me and broke into a big smile - "I don't know but that's just what I was thinking about before you asked me" he said. I found out Vince has no religious background and hasn't read any of the Bible, but he is definitely interested in spiritual things. The problem is he gets his information from YouTube and sensationalist TV shows. He also told about different personal experiences with ghosts or spiritual apparitions of some sort. He feels that if he was judged he would have to stay here in the middle, joining these spirits, because he feels he is neither good enough for heaven or bad enough for hell. I spent some time explaining biblical truths, and Vince was very interested but due to a short attention span and various friends walking by distracting him we only talked about 20 minutes. He was glad to get more info - please pray against everything that will try to distract him from reading it.
