The following paragraph is the height of ignorance when it comes to hitchhiking; whoever wrote it probably has never hitchhiked a day in his life:
“There was a time when you could pick up a hitchhiker off the side of the road and not have to worry about them slicing you up. Those days have passed, though, as we can see in The Hitcher. If ever there was a public service announcement for not picking up random people off the side of the road, this is it.”
The preceding paragraph was taken from a blog that reviewed the film The Hitcher. Here is the blog:
I have been hitchhiking all over the United States for most of 16 years. I have met many great people on the road. You can live by fear and let Hollywood dictate your values or else you can put your trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, live by faith and live life to the fullest. Faith is the opposite of fear. Fear ALWAYS kills initiative, or maybe I should say, Fear kills. There is way too much fear in people in the United States. People need to seek the Kingdom of Heaven first.
Proverbs 29: 25: “The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.”
