I have been discussing with hundreds of Atheists friends who were so many years lived as believing Christians but turned to be Atheists and in my discussions I find something pivotal that these friends were misunderstand what really the BIBLE or LORD JESUS CHRIST taught, here's my simple explanation that JESUS didn't asked anyone to be a BELIEVER., please read the following and address your responses.,
Christians are called believers but the LORD JESUS CHRIST didn't ask anyone to be a "believer" when I say like that people normally recalled what John 3:16 says and attempt to refute but finally end up in silent. If you look at the span of 3 & half years ministry of the LORD and He said so many times to believe when He comes to ascend to heaven He made it very clear in Acts 1:8 you must be WITNESSES which ultimately invalidates the LORD's words when come to the position of a Christian.
Therefore if any Christians wants to embark any ministry then they have to become a witnesses that's only possible by the reception of the HOLY SPIRIT into the physical body of the believer who would eventually become witness and no longer remains as believer but a witness so as to testify the LORD effectively, since Christians are calling themselves as believers that proves they did not receive the HOLY SPIRIT who's not indwells them.
If the HOLY SPIRIT indwells then they would claim themselves as temple of God, if so they can challenge power of death like the LORD did in John 2:19 but the same only be challenged by the Witnesses of the LORD mentioned in Revelation 11, therefore whatever the understanding that exist in the present Christendom were developed by believers which's false in light of the scriptures.
Therefore Judea Christianity is the only Religion built based on witness of the Truth unlike the other Religions are based on Belief which's an object to proof but no religion can prove what they belief. Therefore being former Christians had these fundamental misunderstandings that drove many peoples to become Atheists, here's the questions for Atheists,
Why did u believe such a long years as believers without become a Witness of CHRIST as per Acts 1:8?
If you believed such a long years then it's detrimental to the doctrine Christ Jesus, so is it not your mistake?
How do you confront Christianity by comparing to the rest of false Religions?
Thanks for understanding,
