Ignosticism

Is it wise to debate with theists about the existence of God, if theists don’t agree with one another about God? Why argue Gods existence with an atheist if your religion is so vague your own religion community disagrees in parts? 

And if God exists, why do you need to speak for God at all?

  • I don’t believe theists disagree in the existence of a God, the creator of all that exists. I believe the issue is simply the understanding of the true nature of God. I don’t believe any human being has a full and complete understanding as to the actual nature of God. But to argue over it is foolish and a waste of time. Jesus Christ came to earth to save mankind from eternal death; as only He could because He is part of the triune comprising God. Because one man, Adam, the first of God’s image bearer rebelled and thus caused the fall of mankind, only one man could save mankind from the consequence of sin; that consequence being eternal death. However, that man needed to be perfect; without sin. Since no mortal can accomplish this, God had to come to earth and take on a mortal body, in order to be able to accomplish this task. HE allowed that mortal blood to be shed in sacrifice for all mankind, thus allowing mankind the opportunity to escape eternal death. In His coming to earth and dwelling among mankind, we mortals were able to get an idea of the nature of God, but by no means did this give us a full and complete understanding.
    As for speaking for God, no one needs do that. God speaks, and clearly at times, but only those who choose to listen for Him will hear.

      If this is the case, why did you spend time writing this comment? If God speaks clearly at times, why is it only people that talk about him?
