Pastor Mel says:
Beloved of God, don’t buy into the circular arguments of the anti-theist’s philosophical naturalism or give in to their condescending browbeating as they try to shame you and make you look stupid with their pretentious certitudes.Question everything they tell you. Because, oftentimes, it’s nothing more than a straw man caricature of Christianity or scientism dressed up to look like science.
*”Sadly, many are self-identified “deconverts” ….”
*According to some, such people were never really Christians.
Does this mean you are also encouraging the very same ”Beloved of God” (sic) to Question everything they are told by the likes of you?
Are they entitled to vigorously question why you, as a paid minister, doubt evolution and demand that you provide verified, peer-reviewed evidence for your Creationist Beliefs?
Are they also entitled to question why the bible is such an erroneous hatchet job which is simply myth and historical fiction?
Are they entitled to question why the claims of Christians such as you that your god is the only true god among many thousands and demand that you provide verifiable evidence for these claims?
Are they also entitled to question why they are condemned and damned to eternal torture in Hell for non-belief?
In fact, can you provide a shred of evidence for a single claim to support the tenets of your faith to justify why your beliefs are correct and every other belief that does not toe your line is wrong?
