It's like taking a walk through the insane asylum. People throwing bible verses like they're spells, posting in two and three colors and bold/underline/italic for emphasis. And then I remember that real people are behind it, and that makes me sad....

That is true, no argument there. There will be one church, the bride of Christ.

Not altogether sure about the other atheists, but this one has posted/told you what she thinks so many times that she has begun to bore even her June self!

From the bottom of my heart, fundamentalist, June wishes she could say that she agrees with you, but sadly, (and I do mean sadly) she does not see people "searching for the truth or trying to proclaim the truth through the muddle."

Most of the time, she sees something else.

Huh?

No, June has the feeling that each and every one of you is a self-professed Christian.

-Who are of different denominations, certainly, but it has been June's understanding based upon every thread, every post that she reads here that you are all Christians. That is what you all state. As June supposes you should. After all, Christianity is supposed to be a belief system based upon love, due to the most ultimate act of compassion and love of all, is it not?

June's still here.

But June's still an atheist.



Take gentle care.

Why worry about what the atheists think? Most of them know the bible as well as anyone on this forum. They have made a free will choice. Even if every christian on this forum held hands every day and sang Praise songs all day long it would not change one of their minds. They are right where they want to be.

I don't think Christians should all become united for our sake but rather because it's what Jesus Christ would have wanted.

How would you know what Jesus wants? Since you don't believe he is real.

Well I have been on many sites and seen atheists come to Christ thru all the bickering because it caught their attention and they wanted to see the truth of the conversations and see who was closest to the truth. I personally will not take credit for any of their salvation because I still see it as we put it out there and Christ puts it to work.

And if any athiests are looking for proof or evidence, we got plenty if you are willing to look at it.

So you don't think Jesus would want Christians to stop fighting each other or are you just being confrontational with me?
