Re: Does being non-religious mean people don't believe in intelligent design or don't believe in church?
9 We can reach the hearts of people who usually avoid talking about God by discussing something that is already close to them. For example, many marvel at nature. So we might say something like the following: “You probably know that many inventions came about when scientists copied things that already existed in nature. For instance, microphone designers study ears, and camera designers study eyes. What comes to your mind when you think of nature? Do you think that it is a marvelous force, a person, or something else?” After listening attentively, we could add: “When engineers learn from the design of ears and eyes, we might wonder whom they are learning from. I was intrigued by something an ancient poet wrote: ‘The One who made the ear, can he not hear? The One who formed the eye, can he not see? . . . He is the One who imparts knowledge to people!’ Some scientists have come to a similar conclusion.” (Ps. 94:9, 10) We could then show a video from jw.org® under “Interviews and Experiences” in the series “Viewpoints on the Origin of Life.” (Look under PUBLICATIONS > VIDEOS.) Or we could give them either the brochure Was Life Created? or the brochure The Origin of Life—Five Questions Worth Asking.

10. How might we start a conversation with someone who is not inclined to talk about God?

10 Most people long for a better future. However, many fear that the earth will be destroyed or be made uninhabitable. A traveling overseer in Norway says that people who are not inclined to talk about God are often willing to talk about world conditions. After greeting people, he says: “What do you think about our prospects for a better future? Does our best hope lie with politicians, scientists, or someone else?” After listening carefully, he reads or quotes a scripture that points to a bright future. Some are intrigued by the Bible’s promise that the earth will last forever and that good people will live on it eternally.—Ps. 37:29; Eccl. 1:4.

11. Why should we try a variety of approaches, and how can we imitate Paul’s example, as described at Romans 1:14-16?

11 We do well to use a variety of approaches with those we meet. Why? Because each person is unique. What attracts one may repel another. Some do not mind discussing God or the Bible, while others respond better to a more indirect approach. In either case, we should take the opportunity to speak to all sorts of people. (Read Romans 1:14-16.) Of course, we keep in mind that Jehovah is the one who makes the truth grow in the hearts of those who are righteously inclined.—1 Cor. 3:6, 7.

12. What can we do to reach people from Asian lands who have not thought about the idea of a Creator?

12 Worldwide, many publishers are meeting people from nations in Asia, including some who come from places where governments have put limits on religious activity. In a number of Asian countries, many have never given serious consideration to the idea of a Creator. Some are curious and accept a direct offer of a Bible study, but others initially hesitate to explore new ideas. What can we do to reach them? Some experienced publishers have success by starting a casual conversation, showing personal interest, and then when appropriate relating how their life improved when they started applying a specific Bible principle.

13. What can attract people to the Bible? (See cover picture.)

13 Many people are first attracted to the practical wisdom found in the Bible. (Eccl. 7:12) In New York, a sister who visits Mandarin-speaking people says: “I try to take an interest in people and listen to them. If I learn that they are new immigrants, I might ask: ‘How are you settling in? Have you found work? Are the local people treating you well?’” Sometimes this opens the way to introduce a Bible teaching. When appropriate, the sister may add: “What would you say is the key to getting along with people? May I show you a proverb from the Bible? It says: ‘Beginning a fight is like opening a floodgate; before the quarrel breaks out, take your leave.’ Do you think that this advice could help us to get along with others?” (Prov. 17:14) Such conversations can help us to identify people who would welcome further visits.

1. What change has occurred in some areas in recent decades?

FOR thousands of years, the majority of people in the world seemed to have some form of religious belief. But in recent decades a remarkable change has taken place. More and more people do not view themselves as religious. In fact, in some countries the majority of the population describe themselves as not being religious. *—Matt. 24:12.
 Quoting: DGN


You can believe in God the Creator and evolution at the same time by stating that God created the mechanisms through which evolution occur.

The two are not mutually exclusive.

I got into a huge argument with one of my undergrad professors when I said this. He said that the theory of evolution by natural selection leaves no room for a creator. My response was that there is no way to rule out something which is infinitely beyond the grasp and reason of humans. You cannot rule out something which is unknown.

I say to you, evolution by natural selection is pretty ironclad. I also say that God, the watchmaker, is the source of these mechanisms.

Yes that's the intention behind the counterfeiter of religions. If you sorted thru a bag of iron pyrite coins you would eventually throw them all out never knowing there was a genuine gold coin of extreme value there for you.

"I solemnly charge you before God and Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by his manifestation and his Kingdom: 2 Preach the word; be at it urgently in favorable times and difficult times; reprove, reprimand, exhort, with all patience and art of teaching. 3For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the wholesome teaching, but according to their own desires, they will surround themselves with teachers to have their ears tickled. 4 They will turn away from listening to the truth and give attention to false stories. 5 You, though, keep your senses in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelizer, fully accomplish your ministry." 2Ti4

What are the two main things that separate "the people" and keep them from unity as a people? Religion and Politics.

Go within, be kind, help others and stop the "debate" of Religion that has done nothing but separate the people. Be Christ-like, not "Christian."

14. How does one brother in the Far East help people who say that they do not believe in God?

14 What about those who tell us that they do not believe in God? A brother with much experience preaching to nonreligious people in the Far East explains: “Typically, when a person here says, ‘I don’t believe in God,’ he means that he does not believe in worshipping traditional gods. So I usually agree that most gods are man-made and are not real. I often read Jeremiah 16:20: ‘Can a man make gods for himself when they are not really gods?’ Then I ask: ‘How could we tell a real god from man-made ones?’ I listen carefully, and then I read Isaiah 41:23: ‘Tell us what will happen in the future, so that we may know that you are gods.’ Then I show an example of how Jehovah has foretold the future.”

Re: Does being non-religious mean people don't believe in intelligent design or don't believe in church?

You can believe in God the Creator and evolution at the same time by stating that God created the mechanisms through which evolution occur.

The two are not mutually exclusive.

I got into a huge argument with one of my undergrad professors when I said this. He said that the theory of evolution by natural selection leaves no room for a creator. My response was that there is no way to rule out something which is infinitely beyond the grasp and reason of humans. You cannot rule out something which is unknown.

I say to you, evolution by natural selection is pretty ironclad. I also say that God, the watchmaker, is the source of these mechanisms.

Evolution is not a mechanism it's ascience fiction fantasy with zero fossil trails proving that which Darwin honestly admitted. So is natural selection, it doesn't exist, just words, no new species was ever created by a phantom of the imagination because a different one died off.

That is literally the dumbest thing I have ever read on GLP.

I don't believe that you have studied evolution properly. The science has progressed extensively since Darwin! Your post is absolute nonsense. I hear you delete posts if you don't like or agree. Can you imagine how religion has been manipulated over centuries?

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if you were to manipulate how your thread is received by others. Making it look as though you go unchallenged by removing what challenges you, is cowardly and deceitful.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76998126


I delete posts because of vile language. Your failure to recognise the phantoms of 'evolution and natural selection' is proven by your inability to defend them, even in your own science fiction Neverland so you resort to empty subject diversion babbling tactics hoping no one will notice your mind manipulation making it look as though you go unchallenged by removing what challenges you, is cowardly and deceitful.

YOU are the one who fails to understand evolution.

I'm sorry that you don't know you are stupid.

I sure know you are~!

What "babbling" did I do? Is there something YOU failed to understand? Diversion? Manipulation? Nope...none of those. I leave that for man-made religion!

What you call fiction is fact. There is a shitload more evidence that evolution is fact than there is that your religion is true. I haven't even BEGUN to "defend" evolution! And to be honest, there is no need to. You won't accept the facts and you are already brainwashed to dismiss anything that suggests you are wrong in your beliefs.


I'm OK with that.

But, don't pretend that you disregard evolution based on an education in the subject. It is obvious that you have no such thing! You are ignorant.

Ascending in the world: reason, education, science and technology, prosperity, and humanism.

Static for 2,000 years: Faith in the supernatural.
 Quoting: dogman17


Right the anonymous supernatural has revealed no intentions for the earth and man, guess why not, here's your clue;
"And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels battled with the dragon, and the dragon and its angels battled 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them any longer in heaven. 9So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
..... Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing that he has a short period of time.” Rv12:7
