Christian vs non christian dating

I forget the exact conversation topic, but my uncle said jokingly, “Hey, just make sure no burning bushes start talking to you, or people will think you’re crazy.” He said it as a joke, but it got me thinking that what he essentially said was that people today (presumably including himself) would see Moses as crazy. But to get back to your point, Luke, I think what you’re pointing out is a fact of human nature itself. I mean, it’s a struggle for most of us to even contemplate these things. Same thing with Christians – beliefs about hell are uncomfortable, so they try not to think about it except when they feel compassion towards “saving” people from it.We could point out the same thing in atheists as well – why don’t you live every moment of your life knowing that you will die? We do because we feel it’s important, but in our everyday lives, it doesn’t cross our minds. Not thinking about hell helps them live a normal life in the same way that not thinking about death helps us do the same. But, these are still good questions, things that Christians often ask of each other.

The whole concept of heaven and hell are somewhat misunderstood, I think.

Our concept of hell is due more to Dante than to what the Bible actually says.

They have to accept tons of stuff like that anyway, so it’s really just one little baby step more.

Further, if they know anything about your hobbies here on your blog, many Christians it seems, whether they have kids or not tell themselves that our interest in Christianity is because we secretly want to be Christians and/or that God is compelling us back into the fold.

I’m not going to hold a gun to anyone’s head, and for that matter, I don’t think that approach does any good.

But, I will challenge bad thinking and present new information, and perhaps it may cause someone to reconsider their beliefs.I made several attempts throughout my teenage years to quit masturbation.I even got an ‘accountability partner’ where we both swore off masturbation and kept tabs on how long we lasted.So there seems to be something weird about the they believe? If you really believe this, you shouldn’t have to tell yourself, “You’re right, I really should try harder to evangelize.” No, if you really believed, you would already have that motivation! And if you really believed, you wouldn’t need to constantly repeat the doctrines of Christianity to yourself, and do everything you can to “build up your faith.” I don’t need to remind myself that the Holocaust happened or that gravity is real. Um, well their beliefs aren’t just amoral propositions. So if they think God wants them to play life a certain way, they are obligated to comply.I don’t need to constantly “build up my faith” in the existence of magnetism. Hence, wearing a seat belt makes sense if it is their duty in this life to take care of it until the time is right.Jesus said, “no one comes to me unless the Father draws him.” Salvation is not a matter of convincing someone about an intellectual issue; it’s about responding to the direct call of God.
