The Choice is yours.....

Iknow that some of you will not finish reading this posting as it contains nothing pornographic! Tell you what? Pornography wont save you on the big day, you will go to hell!

This is a true story of something that happened just afew years ago at USC.There was a professor of philosophy there who was adeeply committed atheist.His primary goal for one required class was to spendthe entire semesterattempting to prove that God couldn't exist.His students were always afraid to argue with himbecause of his impeccable logic.For twenty years, he had taught this class and no onehad ever had the courage to go against him.Sure, some had argued in class at times, but no one had ever really gone against him because ofhis reputation.At the end of every semester on the last day, he wouldsay to his class of 300 students,''If there is anyone here who still believes in Jesus,stand up!''In twenty years, no one had ever stood up.They knew what he was going to do next.He would say,''Because anyone who believes in God is a fool.If God existed, he could stop this piece of chalk fromhitting the ground and breaking.Such a simple task to prove that He is God, and yet Hecan't do it.''And every year, he would drop the chalk onto the tilefloor ofthe classroom and it would shatter into a hundredpieces.All of the students would do nothing but stop andstare.Most of the students thought that God couldn't exist.Certainly, a number of Christians had slipped through,but for 20 years, they had Been too afraid to standup.Well, a few years ago there was a freshman whohappened to enroll.He was a Christian, and had heard the stories abouthis professor.He was required to take the class for his major, andhe was afraid.But for three months that semester, he prayed everymorning that he would have the courageto stand up no matter what the professor said, or whatthe class thought.Nothing they said could ever shatter his faith...hehoped.Finally, the day came.The professor said,''If there is anyone here who still believes in God,stand up!''The professor and the class of 300 people looked athim, shocked,as he stood up at the back of the classroom.The professor shouted,''You FOOL!!!If God existed, he would keep this piece of chalk frombreaking when it hit the ground!''He proceeded to drop the chalk, but as he did, it slipped out of his fingers, off hisshirt cuff onto the pleat of his pants,down his leg, and off his shoe.As it hit the ground, it simply rolled away unbroken.The professor's jaw dropped as he stared at the chalk.He looked up at the young man, and then ran out of thelecture hall.The young man who had stood, proceeded to walk to thefront of the roomand shared his faith in Jesus for the next half hour.300 students stayed and listened as he told of God'slove for them andof His power through Jesus.o - O - oYou have 2 choices1.
