I live in a community where solicitors and people who want to bring Jesus to others frequent my neighborhood. This past weekend, my doorbell rang, and my kids knew it was someone there to talk about Jesus so they called me to get the door. I opened the door and before me were two young men of college age. I immediately said, “Hi! What church are you with?” One of them responded, “The Church of Jesus.’ I thought to myself…hum, which faith is that? Anyway, then I said, “Well, I’m with the church Jesus himself founded, ‘The Catholic Church.”
Then I asked, “Did you know Jesus founded the Catholic Church?” and one of the young man kindly said, “yes.” Then I said, “Yes, the Church is wonderful…we go to Church every day and start all of our days giving Praise to Jesus….it is only 30 mns. long and delightful, our Church has the teachings and traditions that the apostles had and that of the first Pope (Peter).”
Then before they could say anything, I handed them an informational card (which I happen to keep on my foyer table for such occasions) titled, “The Requirements of Salvation.”
Then to my bewilderment, with card in hand, one of the young men began to speak. And I will never forget what came out of his mouth…it was only babble. I mean literally, the man spoke sentence after sentence saying only “Bla…bla…bla.” I’m a religious woman, and I’ve heard speaking in tongues before, and this certainly wasn’t that, and it surely wasn’t another language. It was just crazy… Bla, bla, bla, and then I sat there amazed for a little while and looked over at his friend with a look of astonishment saying to myself, “Do you hear what he is saying?” He still continued to babble, and then I said, “Thank you for coming.” And I turned around, closed the door, and went inside.
I guess the truth can make a man babble. God is so cool!
