This is pretty much where I’m at now. I’ve just lost my vim and vigor for ministering to the already determined atheist.


This article sums it up better than I could ever write it:

If I ever come across a respectful atheist who seems genuinely concerned about finding the truth, I will gladly engage in dialogue with that person even if I have to go out of my way and inconvenience myself greatly.

But from what I’ve observed, too many people seeking discussions with Christians are only out to “win” and tear down what you hold so dear…which would be fair if they could lean on sound logic at least. It really does feel like an exercise in futility, though, and I’m encouraged to read that even Jesus recognized a useless battle when He saw one:

Matthew 15:14: “Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”

    1. Actually,Johnathan it’s not that I’m giving up so easily. I’ve spent over a year online EVERY DAY talking to atheists. I kid you not there have been ….mayyyyybe 5 atheists out of…..hundreds that have been even quasi-receptive. After *that* much rejec….no,not even rejection because they didn’t even accept it *to* reject it. I am weary of hearing how deluded and illogical and too many other things I wouldn’t even print. Of course,it doesn’t bother me that they attack me so much but when God is mocked I lose my cool sometimes.

      Yknow, i like your idea of making others see they are thinking illogically I’m just not too sure how to pull that off depending on the situation. With my luck I would get some 30 year atheist that would be the ONE guy in the world to come up with an argument I haven’t heard!!

      Believe me,Johnathan I don’t WANT to stop the engagements, or rather I don’t want to want to stop. I just have some serious praying to do and even more serious studying to do. It’s not enough to have reasons for my faith but now I must learn all the reasons for the atheist lack of faith. My plate is never empty and I must further prepare myself for this new age of disbelief and sometimes outright hatred!

      If you have any thoughts on what you mentioned please don’t hesitate,brother!
