Its very simple just explain that God offered himself up as a sacrifice to himself because a woman made from a mans rib who in turn was made from dirt ate an apple given to her by a talking snake.

Report them to your local police department as well as the mayor and possibly even your senator, they're probably communists too.

OK, so I am not a heavily religious man nor do I practice any particular religion but I do believe in spiritual life and a creator. I believe that it is no accident we are her now to face the lives we face. So I just moved to a town one town over from my hometown. It is a very conservative town. There is enough room at the 7 churches to hold the whole town. My neighbors are really nice people. They are both educated teachers and in my opinion quite intelligent.
Just the other day they seemed to make a point to tell us that they were atheists'. I must say I was surprised due to the type of people they were. They were good moral people who have adopted a child and been good parents. Their daughter is wonderful and is a good friend of my daughter. But I wonder, without a sense of god, where will this child go?
Will she wonder what her future is with no hope or knowledge of something greater. How can I help these people realize that there is more to life than human flesh and blood and we all will reap what we sow?

You become depressed when others believe differently from yourself? How silly. Lets say you are right in your convictions. I go to hell upon my inevitable death. Tell me, how does this effect you?
The answer is rhetorical of course. It doesn't. My life, my eternity. If your God sees fit to condemn a good man to an eternal bath in Hellfire, well, he wasn't much of God to begin with.
I am truly glad your faith makes you happy though, truly. Just, please, don't let mine or any one else's perceived heresy get you down. It is not fruitful my friend.
Hail Eris (or don't)
if it turned out the God I love and know doesn't exist, I would NOT want to go on one more minute...I mean it.

I hope seeing as you're so open to spreading your "messages from heaven", you'll be accepting and gracious the next time a satanist chooses to tell us all about how awesome the devil is.
I hope it doesn't depress you, though.
