I think that post was sarcastic and absolutely nobody picked up the sarcasm. He is showing the irony that one cant share Christian beliefs in general society BUT everyone in general society takes the Christian holiday.

Israel Folau saga erupts again as Taniela Tupou weighs in

Yeah almost no christians believe it works like that. Even conversion in the Bible doesn’t work like that. Most churches teach that those who never hear about Jesus still hear about love and forgiveness and when they embrace that they embrace God. Thats a crude explanation but simply the Bible doesn’t teach that if you dont get to hear about jesus then tough luck. Thats not said anywhere.

Bible doesn’t necessarily teach punishment in hell either. A better way to think about is if you spend all your life running from God you will likely end up where you been heading. Far from him.

Israel, please shut up about God – oh, and happy Easter!

I think my point stands. TO say any believer is being wilfully ignorant is a grand statement. It suggests Christians think “all the evidence is against me but i’ll wilfully ignore that and believe in something with no justification” thats not what happens. There are theological, philosophical and historical justifications. You might not have a slam home proof that everyone will accept but neither does atheism. There are problems with atheism too. It has not not everything proven, it’s not provided conclusive proof that there is no intelligent designer. But they believe there isn’t. The author made a massive assertion and backed it up with little more than “cause I say so”. Bit arrogant.

Doctor John Lennox – A “wilfully ignorant” Oxford Mathematician. (according to this piece)

Israel, please shut up about God – oh, and happy Easter!

What an arrogant position to take that 2000 years worth of Christians from all cultural backgrounds and all social stratas and all levels of intelligence and all levels of education are believing in nonsense with wilful ignorance.

What’s your evidence for this massive assertion? What are your credentials? Many of the brightest people on earth believe and they are quite capable of critical thinking. They would have put the Bible under scrutiny and found that it holds up. Unlike this article which falls over in seconds. Indeed you yourself has to contend with how a bunch of “lies” managed to change the world so profoundly that we dictate our calendar around it.

Israel, please shut up about God – oh, and happy Easter!
