A Fact of Life?

Presentation2

Not everyone believes in God or prayer (I myself didn’t for many years). In fact, quite a few of my friends and family members don’t. So I just wanted to take a moment to say, “Hey, I still love you (and so does He).”

  1. Great thoughts, brother. Too many Christians become Believers and then start ostracizing atheists and people of other faiths. That’s exactly what you don’t see Jesus and his followers doing. It’s powerful in relationships to be able to say, “You believe differently than I do – but you are so worth the relationship anyways.” And it’s only from that starting point of mutual respect that outsiders would want to learn more about our faith to begin with! Loving others is the first step of apologetics – who would’ve thought it? 😉

    I would rather befriend an atheist than a fellow Christian who bashed another persons beliefs for it being the same.
    One Love✌🏼

  5. My observation is that a lot folks are hurt by “church people ” and blame God. Almost every atheist friend I have tells the same story. The only thing you can do is love them and hope that they come to you with an open mind one day.

    Did you know that loving people unconditionally with no agenda sometimes leads them to discover God? What?!? Crazy right? 😉

    Anyone who call themselves a christian but others – even atheists – can look at and not “see” Jesus, are not living as clothed in Christ. We all fail at various times, but in our homes or workplaces or how our children reflect our values, living out the teachings as Jesus modeled them, can lead others to Christ. I get to know them. And I tell my story…..

    …and to respond to your message. It is a welcome and heartfelt message.* (<— see asterisk, lol)

    I'm at a point where I respect people of all religions and worldviews. Religion and Philosophy helps guide people through life and I just think it is wrong for people to tell others that their religion or philosophy is wrong… or that one is "True" and the others are false.

    * (<–here's the asterisk explanation) From an atheist standpoint, one that you may be aware of… "And so does HE", "I will pray for you", "You may not love Him, but He loves you", "you may not believe in Him, but He believes in you". Many atheists may take this as a backhanded remark. I know that most times it is a message of goodwill but there are other times when people say it to be spiteful to atheists. (but you may know that already.)

    Thanks for the blog,
    Dave
