Yesterday I had a conversation with someone who professes to be an atheist and this guy got really upset with me because, as he put it, I "would not work" with him. The reason he said that was because he admitted to me that there was the possibility that there was a God, but he then in turn wanted me to admit to him the possibility that there was no God. I refused over and over, telling him that I could not admit to even the slightest possibility that there was not God. He was just becoming enraged with me, telling me how unreasonable I was and said I was mentally ill because I was not willing to acknowledge that there was such a possibility. As he was ranting, my mind went back to such an encounter some years ago and when I got back home I looked it up on my blog. To my surprise, it was almost exactly 3 years ago. I wrote the following in my blog 3 years ago today about an encounter I had with someone sitting in a coffee shop here in town. So, I'm wondering, in the mind of the atheist, are there no absolutes?
Here's the story posted 3 years ago today.
Nope, Not Even the Tiniest Chance I'm Wrong
The thing is, I'm convinced. I've met God, and His Spirit lives in me. His love filled my heart and His grace and power transformed my life. No... there is ZERO possibility that I am wrong, so I'm not going to even give in to that suggestion that I might be wrong. When you know Him, how could you even entertain the idea that He does not exist? As the old song says, "You ask me how I know He lives? He lives within my soul!"
