Are we equipped enough to accurately interpret this being and his evidence given our limitations as finite, corporeal beings? Therefore, is it honestly possible to answer the above question as earthly beings given our inability to fully and accurately interpret objective reality?
The very question presupposes the divine being. It refers to "evidence" which presupposes objective fact/truth, reason, and the universal laws of logic. Where do you get any of that absent the divine being? So many are happy to just hand-wave this problem away, but it is not so easily dismissed. If you do not have a solid basis for absolute or objective truth, knowledge, reason, logic and your own consciousness and free will, then you have no objective basis from which to make any truth claims whatsoever, which is absurdity.
The point is that if you don't start with God, you get absurdity. The only way we can truly know anything is if we are omnicient, which clearly we're not, or if we are provided revelation from one who is omnicient.With God, mind created matter and life and more minds,Absent God, one must propose the scientific absurdity/impossibility that absolutely nothing created everything, and then that non-life beget life, and that matter beget mind, which is yet more absurdity.
Besides, it is not clear they’d be valuable companions or friends. Lacking any feeling of depths in spirit, they’re bound to be uncooperative and shallow. Why are you fighting this war? What did you hope to gain, swinging atheists to your side?
What an utterly ridiculous, and profoundly un-Christian thing to say. Are you not a believer? Have you not been saved yourself? Do you have no compassion for a soul that is, in your view, bound for Hell? Have you read the parable where Jesus condemns the servant who was shown mercy, but then refuses to show mercy to others?Why in the world would you NOT rejoice at the prospect of a soul - any soul - coming into the kingdom?
