Mr. Guy: Becoming a Born Again Christian wouldn't be much fun.

We were created for our Creator-God's purpose.


To become a Born Again Christian was God's original diving purpose in creation human beings.


Therefore, since this present existence is what it is, assuming that we appreciate it, then, the future prepared for Born Again Christians will be so much more!!

Your post is off-topic and unpardonably rude. People are sharing their fears in this thread. Steven has said that he wouldn't like to become a born-again Christian. If that's what he fears, that's what he fears. He was not asking you to agree or disagree with him. Keep your damned piety to yourself.

The elements of the story are reported in your own book.  They show Paul's conversion as arising from an unusual mental event, more like epilepsy than anything else (though it could have been a migrainous effect, something in the tea &c).

Brother Blu ...


Your Desperation is showing again ... expressed again as Ignorant Speculation ...


The Notion that Paul's Damascus Road Experience was "Migraine" is simply GOOFY ...

You appear unaware that certain migraines, especially in the period they're active in the hind-brain, can induce hallucinations in some people.


However, the majority opinion of Paul is epilepsy.

Nope ...


Actually "The Majority Opinion" re: "Paul's Damascus Road Call Experience" is that he WAS Called -- NOT hallucinating ...


But then, IF we're going to decide such Questions by Majority Vote, then ... "God" wins ... !!!


BTW, re: "Migraine," see Oliver Sacks' EXCELLENT Book by that name ...

"The Majority Opinion"


I was thinking you'd be able to work out for yourself that I was talking about medical opinion.


My error.  Sorry.
