I have friends who are atheist. I have friends who agnostic. I have friends who are Christians and friends who ascribe to another religion or no religion at all. Their belief in a deity or lack of belief is not a prerequisite for our friendship to flourish. Primarily, because I understand the experience principle.
Reality forms from one’s experience. The attribution exists in a collective oration. I’ve discussed this before. The idea nothing is truly real until you experience its’ realness first-hand.
Yet, I know empirically that my God is real and when sought the deity shows forth as Emmanuel.
You cannot see what you cannot believe. You will not believe what you refuse to see. The principle of a harden heart.
If you take the cap off your beliefs, God will take the cap off your sight. The principle of the promise.
As always the choice is yours, but the response is not.
