Q. I was listening to your mp3 bible study in Mark about the parable of the sower. I was saved (I believe) when I was 14 years old, I had no support system as I was the only family member that believed, and all my friends were non-believers also. I have been living as a defeated christian for years, I have always longed for Jesus’ return yet I have never until recently read the bible or even heard of OSAS. Is it possible that I was the seed that fell on Rocky ground? I have lost interest in many of the things I used to enjoy, all I do now is study the bible and your bible study mp3’s.
A. You’re referring to the parable of the sower and the seed in Mark 4:1-20. If you were saved at a young age and now have begun to spend all your time in Bible study, you are not like an example of seed that fell on rocky ground, because that seed quickly dies. You’re an example of seed that fell in fertile soil. It never died but took a long time to germinate. Lots of us are like that.
