In my interactions with people here I stand by my convictions and that makes me unpopular.
Regarding responding to posts on a secular website I would say "Stay away so you don't get sprayed"Wyatt
I appreciate your encouragement and your comments.
I know exactly what you mean about talking with atheists. They mostly want to lead you in circles trying to get you to defend your beliefs. I do my best not to debate, just state my beliefs and where they come from. if it looks like they want to argue, I just say, 'I wont convince you and you wont change my mind so to continue this discussion is pointless.' Thanks for the link to Ravi, he is my favorite apologist. I appreciate all your comments and encouragement.
I and other Brothers I am acquainted with, have expressed the need to be saved from sin, but they don't believe in sin, or that they are sinners. Its much easier not to have to be accountable that way, isn't it?some response to the fact that all are sinners was this "your god needs to be destroyed" or "your god is detestable"You can't really work with that attitude. I just pray for these people that God will open their eyes to their need for Him before its too late.
that statement was made at a secular website, that I post to sometimes. Thanks for the reminder about that chapter. and you are correct about that website, I am sure to be sprayed. I try not to stray there too often....
