So you "say" you were/are a Christian? I often have atheists telling me that they used to be a Christian. These atheists use their “claimed” Christian background as a rallying point of authority for their arguments against the Holy Bible, Christ Jesus and those who follow Christ Jesus. Many of these atheist claims include that they were raised a fundamentalist Christian, some with many years of private education in Christian schools and colleges and even some state that they were actually pastors. I am sure that the majority of these atheists are telling me the truth that they were in fact raised in a Christian household, they did have many years of Christian education, were actually pastors in a Christian church and did “say” that they were a Christian at one point in his or her life. What I have not heard from these atheists who “say” that they were a Christian is that they truly had a loving personal relationship with Christ Jesus while they were “saying” that they were a Christian. Nor have I heard that they had honestly committed their life to be devoted to following Christ Jesus forsaking their own will to follow the will of God in their life when they “said” they were Christian. Also during the timeframe these people “said” that they were a Christian, I have not heard any of them say that their following God’s will and having a loving personal relationship with God positively changed their life as it has my and millions of other people’s lives all around the world. These atheists who “say” that they were a Christian may realize that if they admit that they actually had a personal relationship with Christ Jesus that they would be openly admitting that God exists thus they can’t honestly call themselves an atheist. My thoughts about most of these atheists who “say” that they were a Christian is that they did not ever fairly study the Holy bible nor were they honestly committed and devoted to actually following Christ Jesus and as such never allowed Christ Jesus into their lives to truly have a personal relationship with Him. My thoughts on the rest of the atheists who “say” that they were a Christian is that they are not being honest and are merely “saying” that they were a Christian for the leverage they think it gives to them in their arguments against Christ Jesus. There are people who go through the motions of “things” (for my lack of a better word) without ever devoting the time and effort needed to study and understand the details of what it means to be involved in it nor actually wanting to grow in understanding of it so to become fully...
Dating Rocks is a Farce I was recently asked by an atheist, “Were you present to see the Statue of Liberty built? Since I presume you weren't does that mean god put it there?” Often I have found that many atheists do not actually think before they ask such a question as many of them do not think through the dating of the universe, meteors, the earth, and rocks found on the earth. I am a true skeptic and I put to the test everything to see if it is absolute truth. My questioning includes for example the dating systems used to date the earth, rocks and other objects which existed prior to mankind’s observations. There were observations from eye witnesses who saw the Statue of Liberty being planned, built, moved and placed into its current location along with documentation of its progress and process that confirms how it arrived into being. Thus today, we do not have to speculate on how it arrived into being because we have facts pointing to us when and how it came to be because it was observed as it was in progress from start to current day. True that these facts about the Statue of Liberty come from the past when I nor most likely you were there to observe it firsthand however with a reasonable and honest research we can discover that the facts about the Statue of Liberty are indeed true. However if one does not do an honest research to discover the true story behind the Statue of Liberty (or life itself for that matter) one could be duped into believing most anything about it by someone who is devious enough to do such a thing to another person. Naturalists are correct in stating that we can observe many things with accuracy however they are incorrect in that we can correct any flaws in dating techniques. Unlike with our observations of the earth’s revolving around the sun and the observed earth’s spin rate to which we can with a high degree of accuracy calculate time, and unlike the eye witnesses who documented the Statue of Liberty for us to know how it came to be; none of us were present to observe the beginning of time, the beginning of the universe, the beginning of the earth, the beginning of any rocks, the beginning of life, etc. Without any of us being there to observe and note what the actual conditions were, we have to speculate (guess) from what the conditions are today and extrapolate based on a theory. Let’s just quickly look at the gaps within dating techniques main presuppositions (guesses): 1) The rate of decay has remained constant throughout the past. (constant decay rate)...
