The point is to sincerely try and show the other side to be correct.
No, that's not the way it works. It's to sincerely try and show that YOUR TEAM's side is correct, and we've swapped roles. So, I'm the Christian, and
you're the atheist. My task is to prove that I AM CORRECT.
Isn't that it?
Well, no matter - that's what I was doing. Using apolotist arguments to convince you (pretend atheist) that I am right.
But, I conceded. YOUR TEAM (the ones pretending to be atheists) wins.
(Works in real life, too!)
by the way, you did a pretty good job! How did I do?
Look, dude. I'm kinda sorry for you all as you watch your beliefs unravel and lose significance before your eyes.
I understand that it makes you feel panicky and angry but at the same time, you look forward to 'the rapture' (so, do we, btw) and the Apocalypse, and
you would love nothing BETTER for that to happen.
Thing is, well ----- wish in one hand....
Now, posing as a Christian again:
"Do you not understand what horrible things are going to happen? To YOU, physically and emotionally for ALL ETERNITY?
All you had to do was say, 'I accept Jesus and I'm a hopeless sinner' - that was IT! That was all you have to do.
*listens* Wait..."works"? Excuse me? I don't even know what that i...
oh hold on. Okay, yeah that's that weird idea that you have to actually DO THINGS Nonono - faith alone. That's all!! (Pretty straightforward. No
*listens* Oh, well, what do you mean you were baptized as an infant! Pffffttahhhaa! What?! That doesn't count. That's like the tradition in the
Catholic Church (and some of it's poser offshoots like the Episcopalians, etc) --- how can a baby know they accept Jesus?? Those Catholics aren't
Christians anyway - for Pete's sake, the Black Pope is in charge now! Do you know what that even IS??? That's the Jesuit bad guy - the Sith Lord -
the Antichrist's messenger.
*listens* Pahaha!!! No, I don't believe that. You are claiming
: that: Babies were baptized as infants so in case they died before age 1 they
wouldn't go to Purgator----? oh - wait - limbo? WHAT? Nono, you have to be of reasonable age and consciously choose
to accept Jesus. How
could a baby do that? Pffft.
anyway, that's neither here nor there. I'm really mostly worried about your soul ---
do you really not care
if you wind up in hell? I'd hate to know you were there, because I care about you, my brother, and it would be horrible
for me in heaven to imagine you writhing in agony forever and not a da-- darn thing I can do about it, ever.
Because, you know, I love you. And I don't want you to endure that rude awakening, so - would you PLEASE behave before it's too late? STOP with the
music and drinking and enjoying yourself.
I'll pray for you.
Your sister in Christ
