Christian: Just because you cannot see God doesn't mean he isn't real!

Atheist: And Just because you say that doesn't make him real!

Christian: You believe the air is there, you breathe it in, yet you cannot grab it and say this is air and prove to me it exists.

Atheist: You're just making things up! I can feel the air!

Christian: I don't believe you feel the air, so what can you possibly do to prove it being real?

Atheist: You can feel it too!

Christian: And what if I said that wasn't air? What if I said you're wrong.

Atheist: then you're a fool!

Christian: You, and everyone feels God's presence, when you feel someone there when you have done wrong, you look, and see no one there, but you can feel it, am I right?

Atheist: common schizophrenia!

Christian: Not true. You saying that is like me saying you feeling the air is schizophrenia, you say you feel it, but I see nothing!

Atheist: what is your point?

Christian: My point is... You may not see God, like you cannot see the air, but you can feel his presence like you can feel the air. God is there, like the air is there. You just have to believe like you believe the air is there.
Undeniable Truth.

Wow, this one has a completely different vibe from the last piece I just read of yours. o. O

This kind of goes against everything I had learned of Jesus/Bible/Christians (although that's not saying much since I'm not a Christian and you are, lol). This kind of thing doesn't bring atheists any closer to God because it's mostly kind of looking down on their beliefs and also their perspectives and ideas (which I guess maybe is part of Christianity, I don't know >,< If this sounds offensive, I don't mean it to be at all, I'm just trying to understand a little better) Jesus definitely knew when to call people out, but at the core of all of his actions, was compassion. If that's how Jesus was, shouldn't that be how his followers are?

I think the Bible mentions that those who are 'dead in the spirit' (or in modern terms, non-Christian), it is impossible to understand having a relationship with God so why reason in this manner. If you read a book to a dead person, they won't come back to life, right? This post is kind of like that (in my opinion and I'm guessing also the opinions of some others who commented already). It's quite disrespectful on a person level, but maybe that's okay for Christians (That sounded awful, but I've noticed Christians often don't try to respect non-Christians so I'm wondering if that's okay in the religion? It's only a reflection of my thought and I'm only one person as it stands so it really doesn't mean much).

Did Jesus act so proudly? I thought he was more humble, but there are parts in the Bible that I can't tell.

I feel like Jesus wouldn't put so much focus on science vs. religion, because he seemed to mostly care for people and their souls. For example, "the greatest of these is love" and also, "What is the greatest commandment?" "The greatest commandment is to put God above all others and the second one is like it, to love thy neighbor." By this, I heard that he meant, "Love God. Love people."

So, the real point I'm trying to ask you, and I know this whole post was maybe abrasive and rude, is
Is this dialogue you posted along the lines of 'loving people?'

I saw in the last thing I read that you said you love atheists, so that's why I'm confused right now. Because, I didn't feel any love in this towards atheist.

Actually, your completely right. Honestly, this isn't the attitude we Christians should take on, at all.
Though, some great Christians like to take on similar debates (Eg. Evolution V.S. Christianity) and have managed to save some souls, most of the time, it just turns into a mess of a heated debate. It's best to stop the argument before it gets to this point, and walk away as friends (if possible).
Though, honestly, I have to admit I've made the very same mistake very many times. XD I'm just human after all.
God bless. :3 Hope you come to Christ one day.

Deniable. The air is built up of compounds carefully inspected. It contains a structure, can be moved to form wind and move everything around us. God, on the other hand, is a placebo effect.

Then again, with a purely materialistic understanding of things, conscience and consciousness cannot be defined.

This is great. <3
But we don't have to use words to prove God is real, we are Christians so we are suppose to be Christ-like. Which will draw others to the Lord when they see us, and how we live. (they see jesus in us) We are suppose to be about peace and love. We can't deal with someones heart, that is His job. We are meant to live for Him, follow His Word and love.
I hope everyone has a blessed week! =-D
