Interesting conversation with theist mom.
So, with all the events that happened… The Nepal earthquake and such, well I’ve decided to ask some things to her.
Me: I’ve heard that Christians are praying for the Nepalese to convert to Chistianity. Her: Those pagans don’t worship a God. They’re just teaching those Nepalese the right things. And maybe the story was sensationalized. Me: We were also pagans before the Spanish colonized us. (I’m not American BTW) So does that mean that non-Christians go to hell, and since our ancestors weren’t, does that mean our pagan ancestors went to hell?
Her: Only God can judge them (nice cop out, mom!)
Me: Why do missionaries send bibles to starving African kids instead of water? Her: We humans have spiritual, physical, blah, blah needs. Well I forgot to ask her how those Africans could comprehend the bible (anyone with a normal functioning head wouldn’t), I mean they’re starving, no food=no brain power?
And in the end, she told me that I’m sounding anti-Christian. Well, unfortunately, I would have to feel like a fugitive seeking refuge because it’ll be a long time til I’ll be self-sufficient
