Can I please have your prayers and advice?

For the past day or so I've been rather frustrated and extremely disappointed. I have been engaging people in dialogue. Some of them are atheists that hate you and me for the Truth. Others are Catholics thinking of leaving the Church. And others are Protestants insulting the Truth that we hold dear.

On the Catholic Community Forum I was insulted and told I display "contempt, pride, and disobedience."

After all of this I am questioning whether I have made a difference through my Internet work on my blog and on the Forum? Our Lord said that not everyone who says Lord, Lord will enter the Kingdom of Heaven but only those that do the Father's Will. Am I doing the Father's will here? Am I truly doing His will? I am trying and I just praying that I am doing His will.

I have really been thinking about this lately. And today I read that I display disobedience and pride. I have tried to live humbly this whole past year. In essence, I was told by being called prideful that this past year was a failure.

But, that is worked out now. I forgave that person and she issued an apology. I am thankful to move on.

But, the world really saddens me because it saddens Our Lord. People just don't care. He died on a Cross with unbearable pain and love for each of us. The King of Kings was mocked and beaten with a rod. He was insulted and led off to be Crucified. The man of love who forgave sinners and healed the sick became the man of sorrows.

A few days ago I ran across the horrible site, God is 4 Suckers. I tried desperately to bear witness to the light. I am trying to just sow seeds of faith. And for that I am insulted and ridiculed. I am turned away and pushed aside. For they do not just hate Jesus Christ but all that love Him including myself. But, what hurts me is they hate My Master and Lord. One point I asked them for proof God doesn't exist. After all, atheists claim such a lie. They refused to answer. Of course because there isn't any! They asked for proof that He does exist and I said this:

I can not prove God’s existence with science because God is above science. Science and creation all point to God but can not explain Him 100%. No one can know God 100%. You have to look at the big picture. And you have to understand love. Then you will truly know God. I speak from experience.

Earlier I said this:

I’ll come right out and say that I can not prove God with science. God is above science as he is the creator of everything. Aside from the great proven miracles of the Eucharist, Marian apparitions, incorruptible saints, miracles proven through the intercession of saints, and others I can offer no proof.

I will let you know that through faith you receive proof. If you honestly believe and trust Jesus then you will receive the proof and feel His presence. I’ve heard this time and time again from atheists that convert to the Catholic Church.

I am not desperate for a crutch. God is my Creator and Master. He is a friend, the greatest of them all. Someone that loved me so much He died my death. Quite honestly if Heaven was not possible I would still praise God. If I knew for sure that I was going to hell no matter what, I would still give Him glory because He is my Creator. Those are my honest words.

I don’t look at life negatively. Just because one thinks about death it doesn’t make life negative. There are countless positive things each day.
For that they created a post calling us cannibals. They just don't love. This is the really problem in our society - a lack of love. I have discovered that honest love and humility are always lacking in an atheist.

I believe they have banned me from commenting there now. If you do comment there, use caution. Don't speak too fiercely but with "veiled" words because their comment policy is against those that believe in spreading the Gospel.

So, tonight I found two more blogs from Catholics that are thinking of leaving the Church for Episcopalians. Is the entire world turning away from Christ? I ask for your prayers for the bloggers from One Foot in the Boat... and Ramblings from the 4th. Please go there and just be a witness for Jesus Christ and the truth of Our faith. Please help them. Please!

This comes after finding several blogs attacking the Church and Catholics on our policy for condoms. The world just continues to sin and pull further away for Our King! O, how it hurts me! How it hurts to see that Cross and know they tell him each day: "Jesus, I don't care what you did for me." It hurts to know that some people don't love Him. I just pray that they see the Truth so that on the last day we all may be together forever with Him, who is the Light of the World.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

A man named John was sent from God. He came for testimony, to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to testify to the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world came to be through him, but the world did not know him.
John 1:1-10
