By all means, explain the logical process that led you away from evolution.
A fellow customer asked "Did ... did you just ... buy an ice cream cone for YOUR DOG?"
The woman held up the cone defensively and cried in indignation "Not a WHOLE scoop!" As if it were the size of the scoop that was the issue, not the fact that she did it at all.
It's been years, and that's always the image that pops into my head when a conservative politician gets called out on their bigotry — the politicians who think it's the scale of a moral injustice rather than the nature of a moral injustice that makes it unjust. I just picture them holding up a melting ice cream cone and crying, indignantly, "I don't want to deny ALL rights to ALL people ALL the time! I just want to deny SOME rights to SOME people SOME of the time!"
The verse states that nonbelievers will be punished by the wrath of god. This applies to every nonbeliever, including those who do not know what Christianity is. And because nonbelievers will see the wrath of god no matter what, nonbelievers do not have a chance to be able to see eternal life as believers do.
How is this grace? Why would an almighty, omnipotent god choose to work this way? Why create beings with a plan it knows will go against its will? Why was it that the peoples of the Americas before European colonization did not know of Christianity? Did they go to hell?
The contradiction lies in that this god is supposedly loving of its creations, is almighty, and is omnipotent. If a god chose to make nonbelievers, why would it punish them?
