Thoughts on how to react...

It is my understanding that Atheism means...you don't believe in God, you dont believe that God exists...like Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny...in turn that defaults to not believing in the devil, the bible...or really anything God related...so how does this make sense?

This is a quote from the instructions on the blasphemy challenge page 'Why? Because, according to Mark 3:29 in the Holy Bible, "Whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin." Jesus will forgive you for just about anything, but he won't forgive you for denying the existence of the Holy Spirit. Ever. This is a one-way road you're taking here.'

OK...so then these guys must believe right? Because if they didn't, then doing this would be compleatly illrelivant. I mean they are trying to prove that God is not there...well if He isn't, then what the bible says wouldn't matter. Right?

So having people deny the Holy Spirit, is showing belif that it exists. Because you can't deny something that does not exist, if you truly believe that it does not exist. It says...'this is a one-way road you're taking here' well if God doesn't exist...you wouldn't be taking any road...right?

Do you guys see what I am saying? That is how we can react...they are making personal attacks to Christians by doing this. If we make them realize they are owning up to the fact that there IS a God...they may stop the attacks...or take a differnt route...how can they say God doesn't exist and turn right around and ask someone to do something from the Bible?

Kacie,

You make some good, interesting, and logical points. I would caution that we always need to act with love and compassion. I ask myself what hurt in someones life has happened that keeps them from God?

I have used the logic and vantage points in discussions myself. I always find that when it's a personal thing where we are talking with others that's helpful. But, I am not sure how to take this to a large scale audience in a similar way. Well, not in a way that each of us can do that isn't already happening. Any ideas?
