Here's his post:
... test the validity of my faith in Jesus and Christianity, not wishing to debate anyone here...
If my faith is not true, then why should I believe it, let alone why should you believe it.

So, he states he does not want to debate the validity of christee stuff but then proceeds to drag others into challenging it's validity?

And the chorus sings... can I get a witness?

Nothing like having a "faith so true" that one begs for it to be "tested". People need to get a real hobby Drinking Beverage ... I hear some people collect stamps.

If this person is a friend of yours, buy a used (cheaper) paperback version of, God Is Not Great and send it to his house with no forwarding address. Maybe one day he'll sincerely look for someone to discuss it with and you two can have a good conversation. Drinking Beverage

From my experience its not possible to shake someones faith, they have to question their reality internally, and then when their subconsciously agnostic. they may be willing to absorb non bible explanations for life.
but I think 99% will play possum (Pascal) even if they cross the rational bridge so as not to offend their family or church group.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

Yabut, if he post da status he might be already questioning... so no harm in sending him some reading material.
