No, is the claim from a Pastor, who, in his usual display of Christian love argues:
….much beloved of atheist fundamentalists who think it is a killer question. But the answer really is not that difficult if you stop to think about it….its just that few do!
I don’t suppose the dear Pastor includes himself among those who don’t ”think about it”.
He goes on to assert …
It also fails because it presupposes that culture and family are the sole determining factors. It does not allow for people changing their minds, being converted or for the possibility of supernatural conversion.
I wonder how ”supernatural conversion” works. I would be interested in discussing such an event with anyone with direct evidence.
He then does what appears to be an About Face with this statement …
However, it is clear that religion does depend to a large extent on your culture, your environment, your family and where you are born. But your relationship with God does not.
How does one have any sort of relationship with his god if one is not aware of him… sorry … Him in the first place?
I hadn’t heard this one before …
The notion that Christianity is primarily a white European religion is a false one.
And to cap it all we are told this …
And lets not forget the Holy Spirit.
Ah yes …. and let’s also not forget child indoctrination and forced conversions.
Love this quote, don’t you?
When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said ‘Let us pray. ‘ We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.
