I'm going to take a crack at this, Glenn.

It is NOT --- "see this! Now believe!"

But it is -- "Believe! Than you will see this!"

I am not saying this is how I would have done things
were I God. Last time I checked, I was not.

But it is the way it is (IMHO).

The unbeliever may say to the God he does not think is real, "OK, whoever
you are. I am WILLING to listen, and believe, and to commit to that

When he does this, God, who IS real, will do the rest.
Different for different people.

If the unbeliever says, "OK, whoever you are. I am WILLING to listen, and
maybe then I'll believe, and maybe then I'll commit to that belief," I
think nothing particular will happen.

We sing about "Jesus coming into our heart." That's not just a children's
It is the way things work.

Well -- that's my 2c worth anyhow.
