“I Am God”
Sometimes when evangelizing, I meet individuals who have the audacity to claim they are God Almighty. This morning during a prayer walk, I stopped to witness to a man smoking a cigar and carrying a skateboard. While handing him a gospel tract, I noticed a cross around his neck and made reference to that. A couple times he called me an angel. I replied that I’m simply a minister. The rest of the conversation went something like this…
Me: ”Do you know for sure you’re going to heaven when your life ends?”
Him: “I’m in heaven right now.”
Me: “Why do you say that?”
Him: “I see angels all around me.”
Me: “Do you see demons also?”
Me: “What do you know about Jesus Christ?”
Him: “I am.”
Me: “What do you mean, ‘I am’?”
Him: “I am God.”
Me: “The Bible says the hairs on our head are numbered. So if you’re God, will you please tell me the exact number of hairs on my head?
After pausing a few seconds, he answered: “1,200” (I later read the average human head has about 100,000 hair follicles).
Me: “What if you're wrong?”
Him: “Sometimes I’m wrong.”
Me: “Then you can’t be God. He is always right.”
Not in the mood to continue this strange dialogue, I said “Have a nice day” and then walked away even though he uttered a few more words. Whether he’s delusional or simply playing with me, it’s best not to waste time with people who aren’t open to the truth.
“But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.”
