We live in a post modern (or maybe a post-post modern) world in which some assume that God does not exist or assume that science has somehow disproven the existence of God.
In your opinion:
(1) Should we as Christians simply ignore those around us when they make snide and or off hand remarks about the belief in God?
(2) Should we as Christians actively seek to reach out or persuade a secular post modern society?
(3) Should we as Christians attempt to reason with or debate with those who approach us belittling our faith?
(4) Is the concept of God and faith an unarguable concept and one that should be left to the Holy Spirit?
(5) Is the concept of God and faith one that we should simply avoid trying to debate and/or persuade people of?

Umm good question...
I think I'm open to the discussion but only if they are seeking an answer. Some believe in God and don't want to serve him and label themselves atheist, I would avoid those...personally.
I also think being able to go in the power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost is necessary also...

I believe atheist are being honest when they say there is no god. Because, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. And the wicked flesh is all they have to work with. So it is no wonder they interpret world events and even scientific data the way they do.
So we can make the truth known while accepting ridicule. While at the same time feeling sorry for those who ridicule us. And who knows, perhaps God will open their eyes and liberate them from their bondage.
