Are You A Closet Proselytizer?

Don’t laugh, some of us have some pretty strong opinions about our faith, but choose to keep them to ourselves because we are afraid of being ostracized by our peers when they discover we have a secret desire to convert our friends to our way of religious thinking.

I don’t see anything wrong with that as long as you are preaching the right religion from the right edition of the bible. That’s the gospel truth as far as I’m concerned

What’s that you say, which religion? What edition of the bible? That’s the whole point. If it’s your religion and your bible it must be right, right?

Personally, I believe that everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, but there can only be one right way. I’m not saying that it’s my way or the highway. The fact is right is right.

What happened to freedom of choice? When it comes to having faith there is only one right way, but whose way is that. is it yours or mine? Why can’t there be more than one right way. Wouldn’t that be the better way to find God?

It’s time to strip away all the taboos and inhibitions that are keeping you from renewing your faith and rediscover your true feelings. It’s time to start using your imagination.

Do you feel blocked? Is something or someone stopping you from finding your Faith? Is it possible that someone is you?

Allow yourself the privilege of becoming unblocked. Open up to our common Lord. There, don’t you feel better?

Maybe God has created all these different religions and belief systems and versions of the bible so that we can find our own path to Him. Maybe what He is doing is giving us freedom of choice so that we may become enlightened in our own way.

Hurry, God may be waiting to hear from you. It’s okay to try and bring your friends along.

Arguments for and against the existence of God have been proposed by philosophers, theologians, scientists, and others. In philosophical terms, arguments for and against the existence of God involve primarily the sub-disciplines of epistemology (theory of knowledge) and ontology (nature of being), but also of the theory of value, since concepts of perfection are often bound up with notions of God.
The debate concerning the existence of God raises many philosophical issues. A basic problem is the existence of both monotheistic and polytheistic views. Some definitions of God's existence are so non-specific that it is certain that something exists that meets the definition[citation needed]; in stark contrast, there are suggestions that other definitions are self-contradictory. A wide variety of arguments exist which can be categorized as metaphysical, logical, empirical, or subjective. The existence of God is subject to lively debate both in philosophy the philosophy of religion being almost entirely devoted to the question—and in popular culture.
Atheists maintain that arguments for the existence of God show insufficient reason to believe. Certain theists acknowledge that belief in the existence of God may not be amenable to demonstration or refutation, but rests on faith alone. Other religions, such as Buddhism, do not concern themselves with the question of the existence or non-existence of God at all. Psychological and sociological explanations for believing in the existence of God may point to a shared neurological and cultural framework for belief based on cognitive processes in the brain.
