I have a friend who is an Atheist Buddhist and is very interested in science. He keeps wanting to argue with me about my faith, seemingly to disprove it. The last time we got into an online debate it went on for days. I realised that it was painful and in many ways pointless.
Last week he sent me a message challenging creation, quoting Thic Nhat Hahn as saying that there was no such thing as creation, only manifestation.
I decided not to get into the debate with him, simply because I feel that it would be a complete waste of time and energy. Have I let God down by not debating, or have I followed Scripture by ‘shaking the dust off of my sandals’ and walking away?
I just get the sense that he has a huge need to be ‘right’.
