…. and I don’t suggest you do it on a Sunday, but if you want some idea of the hostility against Christians, especially from those once within the ranks, I suggest you visit Ex Christian Net. I notice they are way up there in the topblogsites rankings, but that isn’t where I became familiar with those who post on that site, or that it existed. I became familiar with them in my time on forums, especially one athiest forum I had participated in for awhile- which seems to have been an education of sorts for me.
If you want to be put out and huffy after reading anti-Christian ranting then forget what I’ve suggested here, but if you want to prayerfully seek ways to understand how many Christian youth become so alienated, or the complaints , often based in how people are treated by you and I, then it is worth your while.
I don’t sympathize particularly with disgruntled athiests and “ex Christians”, or the logically impaired contentions they often raise, but I do care about prodigals and the fact that their Heavenly Father is looking for their return. I think this is an area of evangelisation that we overlook, and that has a huge potential for delivering healing to the next generation. Just something to think about.
Oh, yes, if you are easily offended this is is probably not the ministry for you, conversing with wounded souls…. but until you have some compassion for them, maybe it would be good to consider their plight. And it is a terrible plight to be lost from the Loving God who cares for you. It merits prayers and a heart of mercy.
