as a christian I get into appologetics sometimes and while I think it sharpens my saw to argue those things and I learn some about the thought tracks of those who are starting from another paradigm....I dont really believe I'm doing any good. my arguments do they ever really help even a little lead somebody to believe in God even if its just in a small way?
but there have been a few people in the past on this site that I have seen stop professing to be athiest and start claiming to be christians. the facts are uncomfortably challenging my cynicism. but to put my cynicism to death tottally I need to get to the bottem of this....of when all this supposedly happens.
if you are a christian now and was ever an athiest before WHILE on this site before you converted please tell me what caused it and if your discussions on this site had any remote influence on your change?
if you converted from an athiest though before ever having something to do with this site please tell details to your conversion too.
I herd all sorts or conversion stories on this site from thiest TOO athiest. things like...
"well I just thought about all the religions out there, theres so many"
"I'm gay and I just cant believe in a god that would send me to hell he's evil if he did exist"
"theres just no proof faith is a stupid concept"
"I got to thinking about the problem of evil
"I got to thinking about how could he make a stone so big..."
and so much other stuff I just quit bothering with this buzzkill of a site for a time.
but I've never heard what issue made people change the other way, what thing they were thinking about. if you have converted from athiest to christian, please speak about why.
is there really a right thing a person can ever argue against anthers non-belief? am I really doing good for the kingdom hear, is it true my post might not be a total waist of time but actually play a part in your souls journey to belief? because I'm starting to realize some of you have belief now when before you didn't and I've just got to know why. I've basically always had it and my relationship to God personally grew to much too early for me to ever lose my belief enough to experince not having it and then getting it back.
One act of Rebellion created all the darkness and evil in the world; One life of Total Obedience created a path back to eternity and God.
