I was discussing some science stuff with an atheist and we agreed to disagree.
He said, "Aren't you worried that I'm going to burn in hell forever?" (statement came out of nowhere)
I said, "What makes you think you'll burn in hell forever?"
He said, "because I don't believe in God or Jesus and done some bad things."
I said, (Here's where the flash came from)"You will eventually be united with God for 2 reasons.
1.) because it's not what you've done but what he has done for you and
2.) because it's not about who you are, but all about who he is"

He asked, "How can I know that for sure?"
I said, "once you know who God is and what he's all about, you'll see for yourself."
He said, "I'm not ready for that."
I said, "That's fine. You'll be ready when you're ready.

Please, let me inherit two shares of your spirit."

I just would like this to happen more often. I often wonder if(in this life) we'll ever be totally and completely filled with the spirit of God. Paul and John might have experienced it briefly or longer, but I really don't know :dontknow:

You know what I find really cool? Many people will call themselves atheists but when it comes right down to it they will admit they are just "not ready for that". My brother said almost the exact same thing to me years back. (I don't think I would call him an atheist, just unconcerned about the things of God at this point in his life.)

Great witness ded!  :thumbsup:

The most famous atheist of our day with numerous books and videos out
has admitted in an interview by Ben Stein (The movie "no intelligence allowed")
that he does not discount the possibility that "somewhere out there there may have been
a designer or starter of the universe" so even he is technically an atheist.
Most atheists are really agnostics they just don't know what they don't know.
Atheist= I know that there is no God
Agnostic= I don't know for sure if there is a God or not because I'm wise enough to know I don't know everything.

I was once an agnostic that thought I was an atheist. Atheist think they are smarter than anyone else and that only stupid or weak people need the crutch of a "god" to worship. Claiming the bible is a book filled with myths and fairytales, very few had ever read it. I struggled through a king James when I was around 9 or 10 but tossed it aside as "unreadable" because I had never ever heard or read the language used. Someone gave me a copy of "good news for modern man" when I was 17 challenging me to at least read through in simple language what I was knocking. I prayed to know the truth before I started, I read and was changed, believing all as I read it.
