    A christian should be wise enough not to argue their faith.

    Someone lamenting the wisdom of others, should know that it's "their faith".

    The Apostle Paul and probably untold millions of others (myself included) would disagree with that.

    to argue would mean to try to convince one of their faith.

    It a person has faith they dont need to convince another of it, and when a non believer is not interested in listening to the word of the lord, " you shake the dust from your sandels and move on"

    We're called to make disciples of all nations. Part of that is often a legitimate discussion of the faith.

    But in all seriousness, I think Jesus hates the Christian God with a much greater passion than any Atheist ever could. To follow the teachings of Jesus really and truly, and the Ten Commandments, is to wield the biggest middle-finger to organized religion and Bible-thumpers than Atheism or any religion could ever dream of. Faith =/= religion. And the Merciful and Loving Lord and Universal Reconciliation that Jesus preaches truly shows how in the eyes of the Creator; his Mortal children are just that - children. Children can be assholes and downright evil but if Hell and Eternal Torment exists, it is because Satan wills it to be so, and with the Fire and Wrath of God where it truly belongs - within the heart of the soul - it is not only one's right, but one's duty to conquer them. I believe if Hell exists, so too does Universal Reconciliation, and that the Will of Man and God are one and the same, and the simple fact if that were too be real, one would have the power, through God, to overthrow the Kingdom of Satan and his Lies (the Bible, Dictatorships and Organized Religion) and free both living mortals and immortal souls from the Dictatorship of Satan - who many humans worship without realizing it.

    If there was a Great Flood, it was Satan's doing.
    If there was an extraterrestrial origin of Hatred of Homosexuals, Atheists, and followers of other Gods (which do exist, the Ten Commandments say so), it was Satan's doing.
    Hell and Fear are Satan's doing.
    The Bible is possibly even Satan's doing, but I think this one can be accredited to the Arrogance of Man-Children.
    God is Love. Love is God. That is all. And yes, I do believe in God. Everything else is an illusion.

    Re: Are atheists going to hell? [W:88]

    My perspective may be a little different because I’ve had cause since October to ponder yet again my faith and, I hope, to grow in it through prayer and contemplation. As I type, one of my little sisters is dying of pancreatic cancer. Maybe today or perhaps in a few. She’s already “transitioning.”

    She and her spouse are both Wiccans and, in fact, licensed pagan ministers while I am a practicing Christian. At first I was desperately concerned about the fate of my sister’s soul. She is an apostate. I have come to be reminded yet again, though, that all I can do is remain faithful in prayer and trust that our Father, who created my sister and loves her still, is God of mercy…of second chances.

    Only God knows the hearts of His children. I always return in my thinking to Pope’s “Essay on Man” and his comments on the limits of humankind’s reasoning: “Say first, of God above, or man below,/What can we reason, but from what we know?/Of man what we see, but his station here,/From which to reason or to which refer?/Through worlds unnumber’d though the God be known,/’Tis ours to trace him only in our own.” An Essay on Man: Epistle I by Alexander Pope : The Poetry Foundation
