How do you and I find true happiness in this life? Can we truly be “happy” or is it only attainable on a temporary basis?

Is There a God?

th[7]

In today’s society, atheism is growing more and more. A higher percentage of the children in America are growing up in a family that has no religious upbringing. No concept of God, which in turn does not foster a belief in God. But even for many of the young people who are brought up in faith, once they go to college or leave to set out on their own, they are bombarded with the secular world thought that there is no God.

If you look at the question posed in the title of this post, you might be wondering if I am hinting that conversion is not as important as it is made out to be. No, but I am merely trying to uncover why this emphasis on that first conversion to Christ seems to be the “end all and be all” for many Evangelical Christians.

thRQV4IVIU

Why would someone die for their faith? As a Christian, what is the difference between a Christian martyr as opposed to a martyr of a different faith belief system such as the Muslim faith? It seems that if people are willing to die for their faith, then you and I would have to take a serious look at their belief.

Someone might ask, “What makes the early Christians death for Christ, more compelling than the Muslims who are willing to die for their belief about what Mohamed said? Continue reading
