Consider this:<quoted text>
I agree with you for the most part. On homosexuality I do not, but unless I wasn't clear, I don't believe it's my place so they are most certainly free to do what they want. Abortion against yes it is legal, therefore those women who do it have a legal right to. I'm not at all trying to stop them, just stating that I don't agree. Touching on the Baptist thing, that is the denomination in which I was raised. I agree with it on some points but not on all, I do plan on finding another denomination but I have yet to learn enough about ALL of them to determine which seems to make the most sense. And on good works, I stated that I was taught to do them for the exact reason you said, not because I'm supposed to but rather since I'm Christian I should feel the want to. Again on those who don't believe in salvation by grace through fair (churchy sounding I know but that's just for lack of a better way of putting it) going to hell that's my belief and I'm not a stereotypical mega conservative baptist standing on a soap box telling people that God hates them an they're burning forever. I don't want that for anyone. And I'm just stating my beliefs, not forcing them on anyone because like you said we all have that freedom which is great.
There are many who just read these threads and never post.
What IF a person is reading your posts, maybe someone your age, and, according to your presentation of your beliefs, either accepts and believes them and decides to become a Christian OR doesn't quite understand what you are trying to say, so they just 'don't get it' at all and remain an atheist.
Have you ever considered this?
A person can definitely remain an atheist their entire life simply because of the poor way a Christian has tried to 'share' their faith with them.
Does this mean they are condemned for their not understanding? Do you really believe in that kind of God? I don't.
