This was posted on my page from a girl I went to high school with....She said. "I have struggled to understand this for a long time...A man rejects God neither because of intellectual demands nor because of the scarcity of evidence. A man rejects God because of a moral resistance that refuses to admit his need for God......Well said Ravi Zacharias..." How would YOU respond to this? Would you respond to this?
@Belle Rose - ALL religions teach women to submit -just one of the reasons they are all shite. It is where the women then sprout the same nonsense, and say it is thir idea. That is when it gets really scary.
A moral resistance - I started to watch a movie about the bible - and had to turn it off - it was where Samson was having his eyes gouged out - and christians talk about morals and ethics - give me a break. Just cherry pick the bible, the same way they do. I just refuse to follow such a venguful, viscious god.
I would respond that I don't get my sense of morality from a system promoting reward/punishment such as heaven/hell. I would also say that I do not submit to a dictator even if said dictator is celestial.
Tell her you are a follower of Deepak Chopra who says Ravi Zacharias is the love child of Satan and a Black Hole....or....don't waste what little life you have on idiots.
Get out and enjoy life, it's a blast. :)
Ask her why Jesus exists but Santa Clause doesn't. To be honest I'd rather believe in Santa than Jesus or god.
Same way I tell everybody to respond to religious retards: delete them. Why have these halfwit lunatics on your friends list anyway? It's like having an open pedophile who occasionally posts stuff like "Just bumfucked my 4yo niece, #bestdayever." You wouldn't come here for advice, you'd delete that creep. Same thing.
This statement is confused.
"A man rejects God neither because of intellectual demands nor because of the scarcity of evidence." RZ is talking about the Creator God.
"A man rejects God because of a moral resistance that refuses to admit his need for God." "total confusion" This sentence is about God's love. God's love is a real thing. It is intimately bound up with morality. Some people are in no state to "face Jesus". They can't face the truth about themselves and have no integrity. So - this sentence can stand as given.
RE: "God's love is a real thing." - question, how can a real thing come from an unreal thing? Quantum mechanics can explain something from nothing, what's your explanation for real from nonexistant?
Here's a plan, let's run over to sub-Saharan Africa, and tell starving little children all about your god's love for the vultures that will soon consume them! Are you packed yet?
RE: "They can't face the truth about themselves and have no integrity." - What truth is that, Paynton? Don't be so cryptic, please share your profound insight with us.
Shouldn't you run on over to Christian Mingle, and leave this site for atheists and liberal theists like Barry Adamson? I'm sure you'd be much more comfortable with others of your kind, whatever that is.
"how can a real thing come from an unreal thing?" - this is a good question.
"What truth is that, Paynton?" - whatever the truth about themselves is, as the case may be.
"Don't be so cryptic, please share your profound insight with us." - cryptic for now.
Much ado about nothing.
Ruby Wax expresses it:
"First thing on the road to wisdom is to face ourselves honestly. People used to call it baring your soul, I call it looking in the mirror and cutting the bullshit."
