Here is a little something that I posted on my facebook - I often do stuff like this for my numerous fundie friends and family. I doubt any of them actually take the time though.

The "Invisible" God

Keep in mind that you read a translation and an interpretation of the Bible - even if it is based on the original languages. Even in the original language, the words are open to individual interpretation (see: ALL OF THEOLOGY!) Language is nuanced, it is a VERY inaccurate representation of reality - especially older languages that did not have the incredible vocabulary we know today.

Take for instance the concept that if we do not possess a word for something, it actually does not exist in our self-constructed "reality" perceived by our brains (see: for an example of this).

Have you ever really considered the possibility that the book might not be true? Have you ever allowed yourself to question the foundation of your entire worldview? I have, and it is not an easy thing to do, but I challenge you to test your faith:

James 1:2-5
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
