Particularly christian parents or soon to be parents, how would you feel and what woulf you do if your child/children came out to you as atheists. How would this affect your relationship, and how would you treat him or her?
sort by best latest
True. Although as a Christian I would hope to have instilled in her or him, by my actions and my life, what it truly means to be a believer in Christ Jesus.
If they chose not to believe you can be assured that I would not stop praying for them.
And that's fine, I would hope that you didn't - because that is one way you show them you care. Like I would support my child in her struggles between faith and her life - i don't need to agree with her to support and respect her and her decisions.
As any parent should
Thank you for being rational, I have seen many many times christian families abandon family members simply for their atheism.
So you'd try to show him, but you would except he or she's decision?
Of course I would accept their decision, God does, He never forces anyone to believe, that's the basis of free choice.
I agree wholeheartedly with what you have stated and the way in which you stated the most important of truths and that is that Jesus is the Way, the truth and the life and there exists salvation in no other name but His.
Without Him we will die lost.
That is your opinion, but as long as anyone is civil about it that is good. Only because I actually know parents that would dissown their children if they became atheists
You're absolutely right
