This jeer specifically goes to the "wonderful friends" mentioned in the
jeer. (you who did the jeering may stop reading here.) Now, as I understand
it, you're devoted Christians hanging out with "atheists"
and "freethinkers"... Yeah, this is not a good idea, as they will never
understand your servitude to Christ. And will ultimately sway you toward
disbelief in an effort to "liberate" you from what they see as tyranny. I
mean, take a look around you. The world is just what was said it would be.
As it is , we're mostly seen as fools to them anyway. So it's probably just
as well should they continue to ignore God as they may never have any true
understanding anyway. We know different. So, please, stand solid. Evermore,
those of us here in the "cloudy abyss" would like to encourage your faith.
But also to warn you to not marginalize what you've come to trust and love
and to also bear in mind Matthew 7:6.
