Atheists, Gays, Radicals, God-haters, the lot…

Some believe in God after an enlightenment while being an Atheist, some don’t. Some reject Christianity after experiencing shocking behaviour, some don’t. 

The thing that is very noticeable on WordPress is that people have strong feelings that need to be expressed. They have experiences they wish to share for various reasons: to educate, to comfort, to encourage, to enlighten…

Christians are never going to convince anyone of anything. It is God’s job to work on hearts. However, if you believe you have been called to speak out for Jesus, then continue to do so without intimidation. But do it with love, grace and in the strength of the Holy Spirit, not yours. We are all opinionated. Love the one who opposes you, contradicts you, mocks you, critisizes you and even hates you.

Atheists have their own reasons for why they feel what they feel and think what they think. Don’t be mad at them. If you are, then you are no better than a radical Muslim who wants to blow you off the face of the earth for having opposing views.

This platform is for everybody: If God has really anointed you, called you, spoken to you, assigned you, then do your best for him with a heart of love and pray for those who you believe are destined for Hell.

They need our prayers, not our anger.

  1. Amen my friend. When I write my articles on my blogs, I don’t get angry with the responses. I anxiously await the ways people will react to what I have presented. I hope to have a meaningful conversation with them, and pray for them. Jesus called me to be a witness for Him. He showed compassion and love. He never banged someone over the head because they refused to agree with Him. He did call the Pharisees what they really were because they were religious. They studied the law and yet missed the meaning of what they were studying. I only want to share with love. Maybe. Just maybe somebody will gain a little insight by a phrase or scripture used in a post I write. The rest is up to the Father.

    • Hi Pam, thanks for stopping by. I shall pop over to yours very soon. I like what you say about only wanting to share with love. It’s true we can only pass on his heart and not our own opinion which is often flawed. Blessings to you xx

  2. Sharon, good thoughts. The greatest commandment God gives us is to love others. He doesn’t put restrictions on who we love. Your words make a lot of sense. Some people cause me to feel a little uncomfortable sometimes, but I’ve learned that’s very rarely a bad thing (only when I feel like I’m in physical danger). I’m learning to really hear what others are saying, even when their words oppose my beliefs. Sometimes the best way we can love others it to give them the gift of really hearing them. Not converting them (not our job). Not berating or anything else. But loving as Jesus does.

    Great thoughts here, Sharon!
