Real Christian/Real Atheist
For the heck of it I will post this from thier atheist forum. No response yet.. I been there for a while now. It is hard to follow a discussion with everybody the way thier set up is.Quote:
Now this question has been growing & growing. Over three quarters of atheists in here are ex-christians, of which many seem to have a very mixed up view of Christianity. So 2 questions crop up:
1) Where they real Christians previously - I'm really suspicious in a lot of cases.
2) Are they real atheists now (or do they just harbor grudges against God and hence have huge axes to grind) ?
Not all Christians are on the same page, so that might be why some non-Christians or ex-Christians misunderstand. I am a pacifist and so are my family. They are Evangelical Friends. But other Christians thinks war is ok for Christians...
1) Maybe some were and some were not. I felt like a Christian when I was one. What does scripture say a real Christian is?
2) Maybe some do and some do not. Maybe some harbor grudges against what other Christians did, maybe some became atheist through philosophy. People are different do you not agree Theist?
What all does scripture say about people who do not believe in God? How much scripture addresses your questions?
Happiness is a choice. A state of mind. Serenity feels joy even with simple things that are easily within ones grasp.
i think what we need to understand what's going on here when a theist asks these questions... they're trying to formulate an excuse so they can still believe in their god. because to them it's just so impossible that a christian would fall from faith....
but i'm of course curious as to how others here respond to this as well..
