Interesting thread ...I had a realisation this morning and was thinking how to approach the subject .This thread ,I believe has manifested
such a place ..
Just so you know,my faith is in Christ Jesus and draws from His word....The concern comes from what I spotted in the comment section of a thread
bashing religion and all the ills of that topic as well as the benefits from differing members points of views ....The op of that thread would be
considered a atheist and one would think that he/she making a thread in a forum dealing with such subject matter would not make sense ,because to them
it is a fiction .
We have a notion of truth and false in most subjects except one ,that would be fiction ..in fiction ,anything goes .but when it comes to subjects
that we seek to believe, we have to find the truth and recognize the false in order to truly believe ...iron sharpens iron comes to mind, but I may be
using it incorrectly here . If we rub the truth with the truth will any sharpening happen ? If we take a false statement and rub it against another
false statement will we be any closer to the truth? I think not ..
I recall 5 or more years back I was reading comments on a Christian Theology website at a Dallas University where the supposedly Christian students
with the professor were going at it tooth and nail about the divisional opinions within the faith ...It wasn't a pretty picture and I went to the
scriptures where The Lord Jesus taught his disciples a very very important lesson.So I put it into the comment section, only to see what they would
say...It was the only comment I made on that discussion and as it turned out, the last comment in that discussion ...
So.. I guess what most people genuinely want is to get at the truth ,while others do not ..We see it in all subjects except one and that is fiction
..so that raises a question for me and that is ,are these Atheists that make comments just Trolling? If they are just Trolls ,should we feed them ? Do
Trolls really exist ? Or do they exist only truthfully in fiction?
I would expect flames and the like coming at me for that last paragraph ..lol What I am going to do at this point is to direct the readers of my
comment to the bible and the lesson taught by the Master Himself ..
Mar 9:36 And he took a child, and set him in the midst of them: and when he had taken him in his arms, he said unto them,
Mar 9:37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent
Mar 9:38 And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he
followeth not us.
Mar 9:39 But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me.
Mar 9:40 For he that is not against us is on our part.
Mar 9:41 For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his
Mar 9:42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck,
and he were cast into the sea.
I personally found as a Christian I had to unlearn some misunderstandings I picked up threw my journey in what we call life on my way to what we
call eternity ..I found I have misunderstood the very book I was relying on to find the truth in..In your op you kind of asked a question to find a
question ..yea that is a very good point ,and one we all desire to know ...Kind of useless having a accurate map while looking at it upside down
...recalibrating our selves is important before venturing deeper into the woods ..
That is all I have to say and I wish you luck ...I will leave these 3 vids for those who may ponder and consider how well even as a
Christian,Muslim, or who ever might learn something ...but for those that think its all fiction I say move along,,nothing to see here ...peace and
love to all
