A Response: "Samson and the Pirate Monks"
Why do we have such a hard time being the saved? We have no problems being the Lone Ranger, but when we need help it remains such a difficult thing. Others force us to see that we can't do it all by lone wolf pride.
As Nate Larkin wrote in the Samson and the Pirate Monks:
the “Path that leads to godliness and freedom” begins with faith in an objective Fact. The ability to recognize and believe that Fact comes as a gift from God. It reaches each of us by personal revelation, like a heavenly visitor arriving at the perfect time, and it inevitably produces surrender.
