Answer this question

  • Christians, can you put here how R & S helps change lives that you know of? Or that youvey seen glimpses of?


Answer #1 | 23/07 2014 16:26
I was a Christian until someone here encouraged me to read the Bible.
Answer #2 | 23/07 2014 16:27
R&S has deepened my doubt
Answer #3 | 23/07 2014 16:31
R&S helped me realize that I am not an "agnostic", but rather an agnostic atheist.
Answer #4 | 23/07 2014 16:32
I was one of Jehovah's Witnesses for 38 years until I started preaching on here 2 years ago. I still believe in God but I no longer believe the Bible to be without error and I do not believe in the God of the Bible anymore. Namaste

It has a small potential to make you think thoughts you otherwise might never have thought. It has a minuscule possibility of making a person question what they've always "known" (probably incorrectly) to be true.

I've learned that most atheists mean well but...

This place only helps people leave Christianity and *maybe* Islam. Mostly Christianity. And I don't mean "It helps people become atheist", I mean literally it helps people leave those religions even if to become other religions or even deist or pantheist. It's why the Christians here so often resort to underhanded tactics*--it's desperation which only makes it *worse* for retaining Christians. * Common tactics: - Answering expiring questions to vote for yourself (old days) to give illusion of having good answers - Networking to give each other best answer to give the illusion of having good answers - Asking the same questions repeatedly, purposefully getting the premises wrong - Asking questions repeatedly calling out atheists, then ... - Asking why atheists are here as if Christians are minding their own business - Outright calling atheists and others childish names (everyone has seen it) - Trolling and then ... - Asking questions that imply "the opposition" are the only trolls present - Answering questions directed at other people then (WE ALL KNOW WHO DOES THIS)... - Getting uppity when others answer their questions (WHO ALSO DOES THIS) It's a lengthy list of things they do that damage their religion, not helps retain or attract believers.

Well you see, we cannot really know, many many people view answers without even creating an account and participating and seeds are planted through our answers, wheat is separated from the tare. I have helped a few with my answers here and there that have at least gone through the trouble of actually telling me, for various reasons. Note @ Lisa ? I would have to say that You? are a Liar, Period. Many have became Christians by being encouraged to pick up the Bible and read it, Countless stories abound through this, It is more likely that you have been hurt by a Christian and are angry, so grow up

I can't say that I've seen anything life-changing here... mostly we're all just wasting time. BUT, occasionally, I come across something here that teaches me something new, or helps me understand something from a different perspective. For example, just last night there was a guy talking about how sometimes the love of the debate or argument can get in the way of the actual search for truth. Like...rather than satisfying your internal longing for meaning and truth, you externalize the act through smart questions and witty banter. I recognized that tendency in myself sometimes, and have decided to pay closer attention to it in my own online habits.
