Making Atheist

Rob Bell believes Christians may be the cause of more people becoming Atheist than anything else. I think I would agree. Whether through living a half-hearted unauthentic Christian life or by promoting a view of God that deep down we really don't believe in either. Many Christians hold on to a narrow, largely literal, and often law-based view of God because they are afraid not to. I've said this before, and it's worth repeating, God is ok with an open seeking heart. He is ok with our questions and our search for truth.

Are we able to walk along with others discovering more of God as we go, or will we tell them they must accept God and believe in him like we do? One response will probably lead to a rejection of God and the other to acceptance and ongoing discovery.
