~ The Rope ~


A man was mountain climbing alone ( not a good idea). he had a rope tied around his waist. he lost his footing and was swinging with the rope tied around him ~ he was too terrified to even look down ~ he was screaming for someone to help him. He screamed 'God help me'..and a voice from above said ' what would you like me to do?' and the man said ' save me'..and the Lord said ' Do you have faith in me?' and the man said ' yes'. The Lord said ' then cut the rope'.

It was in the newspapers the next day that they found a man hanging by a rope from such and such of a mountain. He was 10 ft off the ground. He didnt have enough faith to cut the rope. What would you have done?

I think that I would cut the rope before I either starved or hung myself. I don't know if that is faith or just taking the easy way out. I luv the pic.

Hi Catch, I don't have much to say so I havn't posted for a couple of days (mother's day took more out of me than I realize~ don't worry I'm Ok) A very beautiful picture, and interesting question... before Jack, I would have cut the rope and probebly died trying to climb, but now I think I would cut the rope and let myself fall. There is very little I can controal, there is a higher power taking care of things...

Alright Catch, 10 feet is a long way. But I think I would cut it and drop. I do not think you would really die from a drop that high if you landed right. I guess I would really have to be in the situation to make the right decision thought. But like Fuzz said I would cut it before I starved

I would look down and then cut the rope.

I would like to think that if God asked me to trust Him and cut the rope i would have done so without worries...

I would have cut the rope anyway for only 10ft. But if God actually spoke to me like that, there is no way I would not do what he said!

A challange. I hope I would have the faith to cut the rope.

I would listen and cut the rope. :)

Dr.John said...

I would cut the rope . a Danish theologian said that faith is like coming to the edge of a cliff in the dark abd believing that God would catch you leaping out into the dark.

Betty said...

I forgot to say how much I like the picture. That is one I would like to hang in my house.

Catch said...

Thank you all for your opinions......I think even if you fell to your death from cutting the rope you would go to heaven b/c you had so much faith in Jesus and you would be saved. Its kind of like how he answers our prayers but maybe not in the way we thought he would.

I would like to think I'd cut the rope, but who's to say for sure. Great picture!
