You know that friend, the one that tells a little white lie every now and then about things such as their relationship status? The conversation goes a little like this. For this example, his names John.
Me: Did you watch the game last night?
John: Na, I was with my girlfriend so had to give it a mi…
Me: Wait, when did you get into a relationship? Great! Who is it?
John: Well, just a girl I got talking to….
Me: Cool, can I see her? What does she do?
John: Na I don’t have a pic, she just works near her home, nothing special.
Me: Well where does she live?
John: Erm, a mile or so that way?(Points in a direction that is no help whatsoever) It’s nowhere special you probably haven’t heard of it. Anyways I’m hungry. Are you hungry? Let’s grab food or something.
Me: Right John…
It’s as if John isn’t really in a relationship. Lack of a detailed description or any evidence in general when it would probably be easier to provide at least some proof, most people wouldn’t allow this to slip them by. This is a chat I have all the time with many theists, claiming to have a relationship with God. I am then told instead of questioning, it is my fault that I do not seek the very same relationship. What does God sound like? What does he say? When do you talk? How often? Funnily enough, these questions are never answered or cannot be answered.
If these questions can’t be answered, it seems the relationship isn’t a close one at all. Either I am being lied to or you need to up your relationship game, big time!
