One scripture really turned me around in my thinking and it was, how Christ said that, if you deny me before men on earth I will deny you before my Father in heaven.
By keeping the gospel to yourself is like denying Christ before man.
A word to Christians, you need to ask for boldness and knowledge to have the ability to share His word.
I was not always confident in sharing but stepping out in faith and hoping that if only 1 accepts Christ because of what is shared here is worth all the ridicule, besides the ridicule does not bother me.
with that said, i hate true christians. every single one of them!

Nothing I say can convince you there is a God. Only God can do that.
If it is not me flapping my gums then there will be another Christian brought across your path to convince you that there is God and He has a plan for you.

The problem is that by you doing this you are really pushing more people away from God because you come off like a lunatic. I know you have a strong faith but maybe if you we're a little more conservative of your posts you could get through to more people and in turn have a greater positive impact. But that is just my $.02 I am not an expert in this field at all.

I have met a lot of christians who think that I am going to spontaneously combust if I don't start believing only in jesus.

My conclusion, christians are a cult not a religion.

It's obvious, Christians are the only ones who believe there is still hope for you

no, i have no issues with god besides the fact i dont believe in him. i have absolutely no bad feelings towards normal christians. i do have a problem with people like you. i think if god was real he would let his actions speak louder than his words. he would get people to follow him by showing what kind of a being he is and accept all people for who they are even if they do not chose to worship him. the god that you portray is a fear monger that wants people to follow him because if they dont they will burn in eternal damnation.

You must hate many people. You've never met me, yet you hate me. I might be the man who performs a life saving operation on your kid. I could be the guy who fights to keep a roof over your head when you lose everything... yet you still hate me.
If everyone thought like you do, this world would be a sad and lonely place.

Did you read the post that I quoted? Aber is saying true Christians shove their belief into everybody else's face.

That is what you think and you have the right to your thoughts.
I cannot and will not give you a feel good God that fits into your box and does what you want. He is God and you are not. He made the rules not you. We all need to conform to His rules not our rules.

Being bold and speaking out is different then shoving my belief into everybody's face. If you don't like what I say, then don't respond, it's that simple.

Well I guess unicorns could exist according to your beliefs. Horses could evolve and sprout a horn on their foreheads.

You are not bold. You shove your beliefs down everybody's throat.

I understand that. Whether it was sarcasm or a reference to Aber's definition of a true Christian, it is a harsh statement.
