So yesterday I was having a discussion with four people together. One was a backsliders Christian ( bordering on Atheism) , a Christian , a Hindu and a Muslim. Apart from the Christian , the three others heavily attacked the fact that there was so much religion which undermines there free will and they want logical explanations. It was a healthy discussion and I feel we ended off on a good note but I don’t feel satisfied in the sense , I don’t think they quite understood where I was coming from.
I grew up from a relatively strict and traditional home as well but my parents always gave me choices and it was because God had done so much for me , being so Good all the time no matter what , I just did not have it in my heart to leave my faith and there are so many logical and fundamental truths in the Bible , I just don’t see it in my heart to leave. But how do I say that to them. How do I use the tools and instruments I have to reach out ?
