Christians and Atheist to resist

30 July 2012, 07:27
For weeks, months, sorry for more than a year you have been challenging one another who's right. I ask myself what can possibly be so great to win this argument. Are you so self indulged in your little world that your opinion is all that you can possibly care about? Where is your sense of logic?

I was raised in a Christian home, went to Sunday school, church camps, played with other Christians. It was as if everyone around me believed in the same de-vine power. We had the “Dominee” over once every few months, dusted the bible off before he came over and placed it in the lounge. Before every meal we would thank our Lord for the meal He has provided for us.

Never in my life did I once hesitated to admit that I`m a Christian and speak of his super love. I`m writing this because I cannot keep quiet anymore. I feel hell bound if I not give my two cents worth of opinion. You can hate me later, but first, read and remember. It`s your duty.

Jesus send his apostles,  told them to be fisherman of people, tell everyone who seeks forgiveness for their sins, that Jesus has died for them and has raised from the death, He is the Living God. Nowhere have I read or heard for that matter, fight and force your religion down their thoughts if you must, make them believe that God is real and his son has died for their sins. NO WHERE. Let me spell that out for you. N O – W H E R E.

Your job is done, you have told them about God and Jesus, if they ask you a question, and you know the right answer, by all means share the RIGHT answer. You are insulting me and all other Christians by trying to bully your religion onto others. It`s as irritating as these emails I get that says- if you don’t pass this on, something bad will happen. Yes my computer tells everyone around the globe I didn’t listen to this email, now the world is going to make its duty to punish me. In simple terms, fuck that.

My computer is mine, and if it ever does something like that, I will break it into little pieces. So is your God and my God and Ala for that matter, He`s on your-side, remember he sent his son to die for YOUR sins? Now why would He hate you for not being able to convince the whole world of His existence? You were told to spread His word and accept Him as your true saviour. I challenge you to speak good of Him and only good.  We all wish for peace and cookies with cream and milk. We are all human after all, we are creations of nature. What you believe, is YOUR believe. I believe my relationship with God is on very good terms, I`m a sinner and ask for a wiser knowledge to not sin so much. I don’t kill people and I only lie when I`m being sarcastic. You know what, that is how most atheist lives their life`s as well. They don’t run around and kill people or steel from me. No they just don’t share your religion.  Your relationship is between God and yourself. He is not going to ask why Sheila isn’t a believer; no He will ask Sheila that question.

Thank you for reading and hopefully you will sink in some thought before you try and lash out at me.
