Alright fine.
I shall be the bigger man and accept that I am correct and he is wrong and leave it at that.

Ah, good now that is over I can go troll someone else...


As for the Christian, if he wanted reasonable he may have come to the wrong place.

Yeah I got a question. You say you never stopped asking questions, yet you are still a christian... How does that work?

Hi

I'm not sure how to approach this question but will give it a go.

I became a Christian when I concluded that it was true. I got to that stage by asking questions both of it and my own (at the time) atheistic world view. I didn't get all the answers but I had enough to make a start. I don't know everything about my fiancé but I knew enough to have asked her to marry me. The Christian faith goes beyond getting answers to intellectual questions, it's about a relationship with God. You learn more about a person by asking them questions and listening to the answers. I don't believe that just because I am a Christian I should stop asking questions about the world or indeed the Christian faith. But given that I've made a commitment to God it beggars belief (to me) I would stop asking questions about him.

There are some very difficult questions about the Christian faith, questions that have not always been handled very well in the past and ones I don't have answers for at the moment. I have enough to get it to make some sense to me. But if you don't even ask the questions, you'll never get any answers.

That's probably just me waffling lol

I reckon that's two mistakes. Keep talking and I'll keep counting.

I used to have a relationship with god but she dumped me!

You invested a bit too much time, typing that reply to earmuffs.

Throw a stick and say "fetch boy" and he'll be entertained for ages.

Before it gets to it, yes I am trying to convert you you are on an atheist forum, no I don't care that you are comfortable with your religion, I am an atheist hence I believe you to be wrong hence I will try to make you 'see the light', yes you people do try to force your religion on us it is everywhere in the media for example it is stopping gays from getting married currently and finally no I will not respect your religion, again I am atheist and hence do no respect it.

Now that the formalities are out of the way, I guess the obvious follow up question to your post is, what questions did you ask? and what questions do you ask now?

Hey now son, I've been the bigger man here and moved past.
You're just embarrassing yourself now.

Grazer501, can you tell us of the process in which you became a Christian? What age did you start thinking about it, who influenced your thinking, when did you decide to make the committment etc.?

Also does God speak to you? Do you feel that God has done things in your life?

What evidence made you come to that conclusion?
