Hey all! I have been accepted to do something called The World Race (11 countries in 11 months doing different types of ministry and community outreach everywhere you go), and just posted a new blog entry!  "Jesus Scented Perfume" - it's completely free, but far better than the most expensive perfume you can find in any store! http://stephanieolson.theworldrace.org/?filename=jesus-scented-perfume

**This is admittedly not cheap - the total cost of this program is $15500, which I am unable to do on my own. But at the same time, that means if 100 people were to give $155 it would be covered (for some reason breaking it down like that makes it sound more doable). And while I don't expect that it will work out that perfectly, please consider partnering with me at any amount, and more importantly please pray that God will move in the hearts of those whom he has blessed with the resources and that could in turn be blessed by giving. Thanks and DFTBA!**

I read back a bit and came across the theory that Paul was 'asexual'. I never like those kinds of labels and such and I don't think we can really define people by them, but I was always told that what Paul talked about was the gift of 'abstinence', which like all gifts from God are something you are given in the spirit. My parents told me that many missionaries were abstinent/celibate, which is not to say that they didn't experience sexual urges, but also not to say that they, in fact, did not. I could call myself an 'asexual' but I don't care for identifying myself by a sexual preference, or in this case a lack thereof. 

What I mean to say is that whether or not people are 'born this way' is irrelevant. We are all born sinners and we all have different gifts. We all struggle with certain things and have inclinations toward different sins. We're all different parts of the body of Christ so it makes sense that we would function differently.

Well for your question. I was never really religoius I have only gone ti cheney a few times. I really loved science so I began comparing it to god and religion and that's why I became an atheist.

Comment by Matt C on July 22, 2014 at 11:56am

Great, I love questions!

1- Another complicated one, and I can't know the answer, and frankly probably risky for me to speculate. But first off, in Romans 9:15 God says "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion." As far as I can tell, no one is off the table for God's compassion, maybe even after death.

But, I really believe some sort of "hell" exists (or will exist, but let's not get technical here), and I think that, sadly, some people will probably choose to go there rather than stay in God's presence. I don't really have time, atm, to go into all the different theologies of hell, but you can send me a message if you really want to talk about it.

2 Why do you choose to be an atheist? What philosophies, books, or teachers do you follow to guide your life, if any? What is your opinion of Christians, and how do we compare to other religious folks?

Comment by Tav on July 21, 2014 at 6:55pm

I have two more questions.

1- Am I going to "hell"?
2- Do you have any questions about atheistism?

Comment by Matt C on July 18, 2014 at 12:16pm

1. I think it's pretty complicated. I'm something of a traditionalist, so I'm inclined to think homosexual acts are sinful. I think the biblical arguments have some weight and the theological ones too. I don't know if really means I should oppose gay marriage on a legal basis though. Divorce is explicitly called a sin in the bible, and I'm not protesting about that. So I guess I'm figuring it out.


2. Nothing "made" me believe in God. I've had doubts, and I still have doubts. I think intellectually, the arguments for and against the existence of God are about 50/50. Personally, I feel like I do experience God's love and guidance. At the end of the day, I choose to be faithful.


3. atheism is bad. Atheists, on the other hand, are just people like anybody else. Some are nice; they love life and just want to live it well. Others aren't nice; they hate God whether or not he exists, and seem pretty sad.


4. I don't know how to answer this one. Like I said, I have doubts, but I feel called to remain faithful. For me belief is a character/virtue thing, rather than whatever ideas might be in my head at the moment.

There is also one in Romans I forgot about.
Romans 1:26-32

Thanks for the verses
Comment by Hannah Anders on July 18, 2014 at 7:27am
The homosexuality thing?

Esv
1 Corinthians 6:9
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality.

1 Timothy 1:8-11
Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully, 9 understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, 10 the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers,[a] liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound[b] doctrine, 11 in accordance with the gospel of the glory of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted.
