Helping the Unsaved

This song, Tears of the saints is from a Christian band called Leeland. It is a song that talks about how the earth is full of unsaved people,who need the help of Christians. How the saved need to help the unsaved. Describes the desperate need that the people are undergoing and we Chrisitans should reach out, take action at this instance.

This week in class, we talked about 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 as a part of our class discussion. The main topic of the discussion was talking about unsaved man's mind. Although the scripture began to give more questions while we discussed the scripture. Is it only the unsaved man's mind blinded? Can the saved mind become blinded? I am not sure if there are definite answer to these questions, but one things that I have realized is that just like the song, Christians have to help the unsaved, blinded, troubled people to reach out their hands to God. The unsaved are desperately looking for people who can help to hold their hands, who can lead them to the comfort, the satisfaction of their hearts.


  1. I do love this song. It is powerful and convicting. As pointed out in class, I believe that the word "blinded" in this context is of importance. I believe that II Corinthians 4:3-4 is specifically speaking of being blinded to the gospel in the sense of salvation. The Holy Spirit is the one to remove the veil.
    However, I also agree that Christians can sometimes be "blinded" to God's truth as well. As we are continually sanctified though, I believe that He will open our hearts more to discern and grasp His truth. This is a process though.

  2. This is one area that Christians sadly fail in today, especially here in America. With all of the political correctness discussions, many Christians have been afraid to say anything. I'll have to have to say that I sadly missed to wonderful opportunities to share the Gospel with those I worked with, some of whom claimed to know God but were living in sin. Hebrews 5 talks about Christians having to exercise their spirits to discern what is right and what is wrong. I think in the same way we have to exercise our spirits to detect opportunities for Christian growth and witness Satan may be blinding us to.
