Christians: this is far fetched, but so you think non-Christians are here for a reason.

I know when I reads a link that is in Strong disagreement I start to research and study. By the time I am done I often find I understand my faith and I am stronger in my beliefs. Is it possible God wants us to continue to think and ponder? God is purposely making sure we do not follow blindly?

  • I'm not sure I'm following the question. Hate to sound dense,but can you be a little more specific. What you wrote underneath really has nothing to do with the question you asked.

  • Curious as to why this sounds so far- fetched to you?? If we've made you think it's a good thing. Even when I was a christian I thought it was always good to challenge my faith. Either it grows stronger or it doesn't . I do believe there may be a verse on it too. Let me check.

  • I believe God uses us where ever we go and as long as we are willing. I'm glad you research just remember to pray before doing it asking Him to make all things clear.

  • Christians should be "open to reason" (James 3:17 RSV) and Isaiah's
    belief that we should "reason together" (Isa. 1:18)

  • The others are here against God. The bible declare "You are either with me or against me you either gather or scatter" I heard it called "Atheists evangelizing" by someone else.

  • We are all here for a reason. God created us to have fellowship with Him, to worship Him and no other gods before Him. We were created for worship. God loves us all non and christian. His love doesn't change for either one. We were left with the choice to choose to fellowship and worship Him or not.

  • So God created us to be against him, JCR?

  • The others are here against God

    So you are either "for" or "against" God? There is no middle ground huh? I honestly believe that "all is one" so to speak. God is the same being with different names. Some of us may not be Christian, but some of us do believe in a creator of sorts. I think it's all the same thing. I am not against God, but I am against all the Christians who want to hurt other people just because their beliefs are different than theirs.

  • stevmen88, Ok I mean no disrespect. What I mean is my faith is actually strong, unanswered questions are answered and often times I am led to these conclusions after watching how and atheist acts, or some variations of a pagans perspective.

    One example. Recently there has been a lot of post about so called contradictions in the bible. I may not respond to the post but I will do a bit of research on my own. Or even pray and come to a reasonable conclusion. Often times those who are opposed to my views are the biggest reason why I am stronger in my views. Does that make much sense?
