TEI Radio: Show #2 - June 19th, 2012by Life Changing Radio WSDK/Htfd
Much of the talk I hear pertaining to Christianity has preachers speaking about Atheists as if they are void of intellect or voice; somewhat like talking about somebody behind their back, not really paying much attention to if they hear you or not, because even if they did, they're beneath you anyway. I am a Christian, and conversations like this bring me face to face with the reality that all people have real and strong opinions, and that it's important for me not to devalue those opinions because they are different than mine. I do believe that Atheists are wrong in their beliefs, however, I cannot expect anyone to listen to what I have to say if implicit to my message is the inference that they are beneath me for not having 'risen to the intellectual level' that I am on. Thank you both for the conversation.
Dang--that Ed Buckner guy is brilliant! And modest, too. Seriously, I look forward to more conversations with John Rankin. --Ed B.
