Arguing religion with a non believer is a waste of breath.One thing we have failed to mention (I think) in this thread is our FAITH as Christians.
Without it it, it's a lie. We have to have faith in our belief of God. We can't physically see or touch him,but when we have faith,we can see the results of him. The personal feelings I have had cannot be described to another in words. We can't win someone to Christ by running down their religious beliefs or lack there of.But we can make a difference by showing them how God has changed our lives.
Hebrews 11:1 defines faith as "confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see."
Faith is the result of believing the Gospel — the good news that Jesus died for our sin and made a way for us to be right with God and spend eternity in heaven. When we allow the reality of the Gospel to affect every part of our lives, it changes the way we think which changes how we behave.
Faith causes us to act on what we haven't experienced yet, to believe promises in the Bible that haven't been fulfilled yet, and to trust God when our situations haven't changed yet.
I don't think of myself as a staunch Republican or Democrat.
I am a Christian and a Conservative...........In that order!
