An Ex-Atheist's story highlights the danger of childhood indoctrination.

Jul 13, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Examiner.com

The "holy grail" for Christians has always been the genuine "ex-atheist." Someone who was actively and fervently campaigning for atheism, and then changed his tune and became a "True Christian." I recently found myself privileged to spend an afternoon with just such an ex-atheist. With his kind permission, I'm going to relate his story along with ...

sounds more like a guy who goes along with the strongest in a crowd

by the story's own details, he doesn't sound like he was ever an atheist

and that it really comes down to what you are exposed to as a child

let's pretend that the holy gail of genuine athiest converted to theist was true

that's still only one to several million who've gone from theist to atheist and stayed that way

The many different varieties of Baptists are not true Christians.

A true Christian does not fight with anyone, or go to war or train to kill anyone. Romans 12:17-20

A true Christian does love his fellowman and is not prejudiced against anyone. Matthew 22:39

A true Christian does not teach burning fire punishment from Jehovah, the God of love. John 3:16

A true Christian is willing to die, rather than disobey God's word, such as abstain from blood. Genesis 9:5

I love when the fundies judge each other.
By the way, there are alot of people who claim that a true christian wouldn't predict the end, or that a true christian would not rewrite the Bible to suit their needs.

In order for you to be believed, prove what you post, don't make false accusations like false prophets.

Jehovah's witnesses just repeat what the Bible says, the end is very near now, and unless you are ready for it, you will not survive it.

I didn't say anything about Jehovah's witnesses. Thanks for making it obvious. I guess if the shoe fits. LOL!!!!

Indeed they do-- and not just their victimized kids, either-- they routinely commit suicide by refusing modern science-based medical treatment for easily fixed conditions.

Idiots, all.
