This is why debating Atheists have its worth!
The first step is to know the Word. Next comes Fear in the Living God (to keep your tongue trained on the Word and nothing artificial.....or an Atheist would have you on a silver platter for lunch).
Fear from mis-interpretation of the Word is akin to the mind being disciplined, and guided by the truth. In a debate with an Atheist, hard questions do come forth. This is a necessity to awaken the "spirit" which is "truths" within all of us that believe. Thus why we must believe in the Word or believe in God.
When the spirit takes is guiding you, you cannot go wrong. You will see then, it's not really a competition to debate an Atheist but an opening of "awareness" for yourself, which is wisdom, from the Living God. Be great.
Just Atheists, huh?
Yeah, that's what people keep saying, however, I've read the words. And aside from the mystic BS, Jesus' message of love, mercy and compassion, still ring true. It's too bad more people didn't actually do as they are told.
Fear in the living G/god? Maybe in you and others who believe as you do.
This makes no sense. But, I'm not surprised.
Believe all you like. When your actions speak differently than that of love, is where you cross a line you cannot come back from. I don't care if you think your G/god has forgiven you, your actions will have spoken for you.
If you are saying God gives wisdom via the guiding spirit. I do agree. Fear only arises when one cannot discern what is of spirit and what is of the mind.
I think you are right in that we should (and any sane person would) fear a living God. Any creature with unlimited power that takes notice of you will eventually cause great harm, just as the mythological God of Christianity (or any other religion I've ever heard of) did.
Thankfully there is no reason to have that kind of fear.
Only to the non-believers would there be no fear, and God would stretch forth His hand more for you than the Believers. Those that believes, already with God. Those that don't are lost. And far be it of God to see His lost souls straying too far from the truth.
Blessed is he who God reach out to besides the believers.
Lost? And here I thought I was finding myself for the last 35 years.
I found myself once and I still haven't stopped playing with it.
Physically, as pertaining to being of the world and worldly, you are what you made of yourself. No disputes there, right? However, spiritually.....do you know yourself?
Who cares? If I'm alive and I can experience life, then what does a belief matter, if not just to pass time.
Free-will living then. You have that choice. Why antagonize, belittle others that believe? It's more godly to enjoy your free-will than putting down other people' free-will to want to believe.
I never put you down personally, I merely conveyed my stance on theism. If you think I'm insulting anyone personally, please forgive me. If I got a little heated or actually attacked anyone, please copy and paste it. Otherwise, let's continue this discussion like the adults we are pretending to be.

Atheists, do you despise Jesus or just religions (in general) that worship God?Such God worshiping religions would include Judaism and Islam. Also, did something happen to you to make you angry about "God" or is this just a scientific decision you made in college?? Many atheists demand...

What is the best way to explain the existence of God to an atheist?I've heard people try to convince atheists that there is a God by quoting the Bible or some other holy book. But quoting from such materials won't work. You have to believe in them before you can accept them as plausible...

Why can't atheists and believers leave each other alone to not believe or believe?Why is it that atheists (not all, some) continuously question believers about their belief and vice versa; why do believers (not all, some) feel they have to justify their belief? Surely if you don't believe in God...

Believers, how do you KNOW there is life after death?I am always interested, and quite envious, about people who are completely convinced of an afterlife. People who believe in the afterlife, do you feel that you KNOW there is life after death and if so how can you be so sure?

This topic is old, I know, but I'd like to ask it anyway. Many Christians will ask an atheist, "Why are you here if you don't believe God (should it be a Christian thread)?" Some will answer, "Because I'm trying to help you see the errors of your ways. Is this...
