Hi from another theist
I wanted to check this site out after I checked out the Blasphemy project on a friend's advice. I come fairly empty handed, other than believing in God and wanting to talk about skepticism and atheism. I actually talked to Brian 2 months ago via email, since I'm not faithful enough to the whole idea of checking into a public forum regularly, and told him that I would be willing to join then. I didn't, but I've been nagging myself until now. Glad to be here--I hope I might have something to bring to the table.
I'm a father, a Texan, a counselor, a former coach, a Cowboy fan, a music lover and being outside in any capacity, and probably a lot of other things, just to state my position.
Romans 1:20 NIV: "For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."
The greatest single cause of atheism today is Christians, who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny him with their life style. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.
