Is there anywhere we can post that won't be attacked by atheists?

I think what the atheists are saying is that you, as a Christian, are not coming from a reasonable position. If you were more respectful and understanding of atheists, I think you would have far less problems.

King's: "you should be frightened into believing in God. He is and He is knocking and waiting for you to respond."

Therein lies some of your problem with atheists. When you project a terrorist-type religion, you are going to have trouble with atheists as well as Christians like me who do not agree with you.

You seem pretty angry.

I think some of the problem is that some Christians do not like to be challenged. Challenging a belief is not attacking. My experience on these forums is quite the opposite actually. When the topic can not be discussed in a rational and reasoned manner, some Christians know they can not provide a logical answer and therefore begin with the name calling.

Another problem is that some Christians and Christianity in general has had a free ride for many centuries of going unchallenged and unquestioned. It is an attitude of "How dare those non-believers or atheists challenge my faith and religious beliefs. They are attacking." When actually atheists are not attacking anyone personally at all. Atheists are trying to get people to question and challenge and not just accept because some authority figure has been telling them something is so since they were young.

Galileo had similar problems with the authority of the church when he challenged their dogma that the Earth is the center of the universe and or that the Sun revolves around the Earth. It was 1978 I believe that the Catholic Church finally admitted they were wrong in what they did to Galileo. A good 300 + years before they made such an admission. Churches, religions and some followers are slow to change. Change in perspective and thinking sometimes never happens and in most cases a lot of kicking and screaming prevails before any kind of change occurs.

As far as I understand it, a person must "accept Jesus Christ as their lord and savoir", act as a Christian, and worship Jesus in "truth and spirit" to reap the benefits of a Christian. The offer expires when we expire from my understanding.

Amon says:
This is the point that I'm making. If a person can't, refuses, or is simply unwilling to do the things that I said; there would be no point in admitting you are wrong in your beliefs at death because they'll be hell bound either way.

King's Kid says:
If you believe in Hell as a place of eternal torment, that would be problematic. I don't see it that way.

Amon says:
Wait...you don't believe that hell is a place of eternal torment?

No. Do you?

Um no...but I'm not a Christian and until a moment ago I thought you were.

But...you don't believe in Hell?

King's Kid says:
IMHO, hell is somewhere for Satan to spend eternity. NT says that believers have eternal life. Non-believers have eternal death.

Amon says:
So you believe, that for non-believers, we will just die. That's the end of it. Just oblivion? No eternal damnation or eternal suffering? Because if that's what you believe you're the only "Christian" I know who believe that. Ask the vast majority of Christians on this forum what they believe and they will tell you non-believers go to Hell. Not to mention that if you believe that non-believers don't go to hell than what's the problem with not sharing your belief?

King's Kid says:
I do believe that Christians spend eternity in Heaven. I do believe that non-believers cease to exist. According to Revelation; they are cast into the lake of fire along with death. They cease to exist. Satan, the Beast and the false prophet are fated to spend eternity in torment. No one else.

So there's no real detriment of not believing...right?

No, I am not projecting. Threatening people with "something" upon death is terrorism. As a Christian who does not believe in terrorism as well as what I consider idle threats, you are wondering why atheists respond negatively to your threats that you claim come from God.

You do have a problem, King. Sorry you are having so much trouble. I have very little problem with atheists because I respect their positions and don't threaten them with hellfire and damnation [i.e. terrorism].

But, Amon, not all of us Christians approach Christianity from that limited perspective.
