What seems to be missing from this discussion, an omission not by atheists but especially by Christians, is the fact that Phil acted out of love, love for his fellow beings. "He has a funny way of showing it", you say?
As a Christian, you are called to preach to Gospel, to speak the truth, to tell it to those who are still lost, so that they too will have eternal life.
So his dilemma is this. Should he speak for the lost, to the lost, preaching repentance and biblical truth, or should he just look the other way, like so many do, and let them go straight to hell?
Which is more loving, more compassionate?
A good comparison for those who don't believe is this.
If you see a kid by the side of the road, ready to cross, and you know the kid will be run over, would you stop the kid and guide it to a crosswalk so that the little one will reach the other side, or would you just let the kid go?
