• How can anyone go from being a devout Christian to an atheist?

    My sister's husband used to be a very devout Catholic. He used to teach children's catechism classes and went to daily Mass. My sister got pregnant 3 months after getting married to her husband. After their first was born, she got pregnant again 6 months later. Their second child was born just recently. All of a sudden, my sister's husband turned to atheism a few months after the second child was born. He no longer believes in God. Also, he doesn't want anymore kids. Though, my sister refuses to take artificial contraception because doing so is a mortal sin. I'm rather confused on how such a devout believer can turn into an atheist. I mean, he was very devout. He prayed the rosary daily and was always talking about the Catholic Faith. How can anyone go from being a devout Christian to an atheist?

    Best answer: YOU ARE NOT SERIOUS ARE YOU?

    PROOF OF GOD, WE ALL HAVE PERPETUAL MOTION WHEN WE BREATH AND ONLY GOD CAN PERFORM THIS WITH HIS OWN BREATH AND GOODNESS DO WE BREATH. MOST TAKE THIS FOR GRANTED ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY SAY THERE IS NO GOD. DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU CREATED YOURSELF AND IF YOU COULD HOW WOULD YOU BREATH ON YOUR OWN INDEFINITELY? AND WHILE YOU ARE AT IT, SEE AND THINK REAL HARD ON THIS, NEXT TIME YOU SAY THERE IS NO GOD, YOU MUST READ ALL >>>>>>>>>>>

    AS THE HOLY BIBLE SAYS, "ONLY A FOOL FROM THEIR HEART, SAYS THERE IS NO GOD. BUT READ ALL OF THIS CAREFULLY IT MAY CHANGE YOUR MIND. BTW, IF GOD WERE TO TALK DIRECTLY TO US, THEN WHAT NEED WOULD THERE BE OF FAITH?

    THE HOLY BIBLE COULD NOT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN BY JUST ANYONE. IT IS THE INSPIRED WORD DIRECTLY FROM GOD TO THOSE WHO WROTE IT AND NO ONE ELSE. ALSO THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD, AND THE REASON THERE ARE NO GODS BEFORE OR AFTER HIM, IS BECAUSE GOD LIVES IN THE "ETERNAL NOW". THERE IS AND NEVER WAS A PAST OR FUTURE WITH GOD. WE WILL BE IN THE ETERNAL NOW ALSO WHEN WE DIE, THIS IS WHY IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO REPENT NOW, ONCE DEAD YOU CANNOT GO BACK AND REPENT AND YOU WILL NOT WANT TO, BECAUSE YOUR LAST FREE WILL DECISION IS FOREVER. SO REPENT EQUALS HEAVEN IN THE ETERNAL NOW, REFUSE TO REPENT AND YOU WILL BE IN THE ETERNAL HELL. ITS THAT SIMPLE. ALSO IF GOD WERE TO SPEAK TO YOU, THEN THERE WOULD BE NO NEED OF FAITH, WOULD THERE?

    FAITH IS A DIRECT GIFT FROM GOD TO ACCEPT OR REJECT.

    FOR THOSE WHO HAVE FAITH, NO EXPLANATION IS NEEDED.

    FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT HAVE FAITH, NO EXPLANATION IS POSSIBLE.

    BUT READ ALL OF THIS STRAIGHT THRU, MIGHT HELP TO UNDERSTAND>>>>>>>>>

    ALSO PROOF OF GOD IS COMMON SENSE. JUST LOOK INTO ANY MIRROR AND TELL US ALL ABOUT HOW YOU OR ANYONE IS SMART ENOUGH TO CREATE A HUMAN BEING AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE? ALSO, DO YOU THINK THAT OF ALL THE FRUITS AND VEGETABLES THAT ARE DIFFERENT COULD HAVE JUST SPRANG UP BY THEMSELVES, EVEN A CHANCE HAS TO HAVE A CAUSE, ALSO>>>>>>>>>

    THERE ARE TRILLIONS OF PEOPLE THAT WERE BORN AND STILL ARE BEING BORN, ALL WITH DIFFERENT "FACES", "FINGER PRINTS" "VOICES" ETC. ONLY AN INFINITE MIND CAN DO THIS WITH NO END TO IT. ALSO,

    IF YOU HAVE AN OPEN MIND AND CAN APPRECIATE A PERSON THAT MAKES GREAT SENSE, PLEASE LOOK INTO THIS, AND REMEMBER EVEN A CHANCE HAS TO HAVE A CAUSE>>>>

  • Is God a man or a woman?

    Best answer: God is pretend for delusional bigots who need an invisible best friend to tell them how special they are and to give them permission to violently assault all the neighbors who aren't quite so special. Rolls eyes

  • Religious folk, if God disagrees with you, how will you know He's God?

    Best answer: I don't think that God would disagree with me, and I disagree with many of the Bible's so called God's true words. I would probably say : I really didn't knew what you exactly wanted from me, If you wanna punish me for not stoning people to death and for not bashing and abusing others without any... show more
    Best answer: I don't think that God would disagree with me, and I disagree with many of the Bible's so called God's true words.

    I would probably say : I really didn't knew what you exactly wanted from me, If you wanna punish me for not stoning people to death and for not bashing and abusing others without any reason then you can punish me and burn me in hell for eternity.

    I know God really exists but I can't follow a book that condones slavery, rape, genocide, child and animal sacrifice and abuse. And I don't need a damn book to understand what is moral and what is immoral.

    BTW thanks for this deep question.

  • When Christians say people should not be gay because they might get STDs, are they saying this out of pure, selfless compassion for them?

    Do they really care about the wellbeing of gay people, or are there other, more selfish motives?

  • R&S: would you change your values or faith for a person you are really attracted to, or only date within the religion you've been part of?

    I was atheist for like 15 years. After tragedy and misfortune struck, with miraculous comebacks, I've questioned ATHEISM because what happened was very uncanny.

    I was atheist for like 15 years. After tragedy and misfortune struck, with miraculous comebacks, I've questioned ATHEISM because what happened was very uncanny. So in the last year I've swung over to somewhere between agnostic and spiritual but not religious. Until I started dating this girl. She's VERY religious and usually that would have been a deal breaker, but the attraction is so strong I've even considered going to church with her and learning the ways of God. Girl's an angel Complete turn around, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced something like this. Very existential. Any answers appreciated. ~Aizen
