Hello, God bless.
I am very grateful for your work and admiring it. While I actually barely scratched the surface of your blog (“Atheists contradict themselves”), it was still a valuable encounter.
It must take courage to write about your beliefs and deal with the militant atheists.
Now, are there really that many atheists? They seem overrepresented in the Internet and debate, perhaps it’s because religious people avoid conflict and are content with sitting quietly and keeping their belief to themselves. It’s hard for me to say if that’s good or not, I don’t really know.
I remember what Vittorio Messori wrote, that there’s “just enough to believe, and just enough to allow unbelief”. Therefore, accepting God requires our will, the world and the coming of Christ were so designed that left humans free to choose: follow or not.
Greek philosophers didn’t believe. Many Jews didn’t believe. The poor and pagan did, and that’s how it was meant to be.
Now that I think of it, the atmosphere about the debate seems to be perfectly in line with what is actually said about Jesus and christian faith in the Bible: This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against (Luke 2:34).
Perhaps everything is good. Everything is under control. Even though I don’t really enjoy some of the ferocious attacks of the “military atheists”… some of them actually are likely to have – conscious or not – personal reasons for it, like Richard Dawkins who, as a child, was sexually abused by a priest (“It was a very unpleasant and embarrassing experience” – R. Dawkins”). I have sympathy for mr. Dawkins for going through that.
I’m closing now… again, thank you for this blog, God bless you, be strong as you are.
Please give me more details as to how exactly this works and if there are any costs involved. Please don’t have anyone call me, just send me an email reply. Thank you. Sarah.
Being a Christian
Many people think that they are Christians because they belong to a congregation.
Others think its because they come from a Christian background.
Others think its because they were born in a certain country.
Or because they believe in God and do good works.
It’s not like that at all.
Being a Christian isn’t belonging to a congregation.
It isn’t walking down an aisle or being baptized.
It isn’t just saying “I believe in God.”
It isn’t even following the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule.
Being a Christian means believing that Jesus Christ is who He said He is;
The Son of God and the only way to heaven.
It means making a total commitment to Jesus Christ.
It means making Him the Savior and Master of your life.
