There have been a couple of recent threads on ATS claiming you are not capable of discerning the word of your god on your own. These accusations
claim that your faith is not strong enough to confront on a logical level. I know this is not true as I have had the pleasure of being proven wrong
by a Christian on more than one occasion.
17 Iron sharpens iron, So one man sharpens another. 18 He who tends the fig tree will eat its fruit, And he who cares for his master will be
If you do not tend to your fig tree (your faith) nor care for your master (your god), you will go hungry and without honor in the eyes of your god.
Those who persuade the sheep to ignore the wolves are probably wolves in a shepherd's disguise. Do not ignore those of us who question your faith.
You are in the spotlight and your brethren are watching how you handle us. We provide a service when we call you out on your beliefs.
Non-Christians who are critical of you are your whetstones. Whetstones are for sharpening steel
, not iron. If you want to remain as weak as
iron, then only talk to other Christians. If you want to be as sharp as steel, then talk to the rest of us and do so with the brilliance of your
Jesus and with the stoic nature of your Holy Spirit. Steel is made of iron and carbon (faith and humanity).
Use us as your carbon and accept our challenges to you as your whetstones. Other faiths have the same to gain from these debates so, to deny them is
to deny yourselves.
So... go forth with strength and understanding! No fear! No ignorance! No preconceptions! Just love and a willingness to discern for yourself!
