I hope & pray that all of you are having a wonderful & blessed day.
I’m sorry that you all have missed the beginning & close of this conversation below.
Being on the outside looking in makes this post look quite harsh = because of not knowing the events that surrounded it = for that I am sorry.
I intermittently post portions of actual conversations to keep a log of those whom I or another brother/sister in Christ have witnessed unto = whether it be good or bad.
An individual came forth unto another sister in Christ that was having difficulty witnessing unto that person. The conversation went forth all out of love & a soft spoken tongue & with previous admissions of that certain individual. There weren’t any assumptions made about that individual. She (the sister in Christ) was able to witness with what God had done for her plus many other evidences. The conversation continued & that individual is continuing to ask questions hungry for God’s word.
My nephew claimed to be an atheist for many years. Because of that, he was very analytical & questioned everything. Sometimes it takes time & patience to bring forth truth. I learned with him & others that are seeking truth = you keep the conversation open, so they will come back asking more questions. God worked in His life through trials & myself & family witnessing unto him. He is now a professing believer in Christ & growing.
Below is only a portion of the conversations that went back and forth with the above stated fellow sister in Christ & another individual. God bless & hope you enjoy.
ANONYMOUS = Hello brothers and sisters. What do you answer someone to this question:
‘What rational reason do you have to believe that a deity exists’?
AMANDA = Turn the question around & make them answer you.
They appear to have an atheistic type spirit.
“”” (What rational reason do YOU HAVE TO NOT believe that a deity such as GOD ALMIGHTY EXISTS?) “””
“””The fact that I believe in a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, that can save from all condemnation out of love for my eternal soul, gives me fulfillment with a sound mind & wanting nothing.”””
“””Because you do not believe in such, leaves you empty & void=== endlessly searching for something. Daily you seek things, that in the moment make you happy; but when you are left to your own devices, leads you to depression. You realize that emptiness can’t be fulfilled without believing in something to fill that void deep inside that you know you have.””””
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
John 3:16-18 King James Version (KJV)
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
AND WHATEVER ELSE SCRIPTURE THE LORD LEADS YOU TO
