Quoting queso +2curdles(13):" I have a hard time even saying anything to people arguing religion like that. I'm so bad with conflict ... [snip!] ... He's researching apologetics and can't get enough of evolutionist and creationist debates. Me, I'd rather hide in a hole. lol"
Casting pearls before swine.
The hardest thing for me to do, is to let go of the lost. Remember, God doesn't "chase" people, they have to call HIS name. Seeking God is the one thing that all true believers do. It is completely futile to argue FOR the existence of God...which is always the main debate. God's handiwork is all around us, everyday. The Bible says God is seen in what He has made, yet, people deny the very existence of Him, many times, worshiping the creation
and not the Creator
On another note, when I am mocked about my belief, I know that I am blessed.
Luke 6:22 says:
What blessings await you when people hate you and exclude you and mock you and curse you as evil because you follow the Son of Man.
Matthew 5:11 says:
"God blesses you when people mock you and persecute you and lie about you and say all sorts of evil things against you because you are my followers.
and 1 Peter 4:14 says:
So be happy when you are insulted for being a Christian, for then the glorious Spirit of God rests upon you.
Be INSPIRED by these verses, as they are meant for comfort.
Remember, the gate and path are NARROW
, and FEW
will find it. Most people, even those proclaiming belief, will NOT go to Heaven.
Satan believes in God. Oh boy does he...and he's been permanently banished. What does that tell you?
