A Review for The Hitcher: Ignorance Springs Eternal   2 comments

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:

The Hitcher


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.”

  1. I used to steer clear of any hitchhiker…till I came across your web site, and especially after reading your book. Now I keep an eye out for you, just in case you pass through my area again…

    Blessings to you always!

  2. Thanks, Dunamis. The key thing is to be directed by the Holy Ghost. One time I was hitchhiking near Manhattan, Kansas and this young lady picked me up. I got in her pickup and she said, “The Lord told me to pick you up.” I said, “Praise the Lord, I am a believer, too.” She told me that she was driving in Kansas two years previous and she saw this hitchhiker. In the goodness of her heart, she wanted to stop and give him a ride, but the Lord said, NO! She drove on by and two days later she saw on the nightly news that same hitchhiker: he had robbed and killed an older couple in the next town. It pays to OBEY the Lord.
