Atheist Converts To Christianity After Being Asked What If You're Wrong?

Atheist Converts To Christianity After Being Asked “What If You’re Wrong?”
July 17, 2017 by Andrew Hall 17

Even atheists have guardian angels.

Atheist Martin “Marty” Young converted to Christianity after his neighbor Bob asked him “What if you’re wrong about there being no God?”

The two men were chatting by the fence that separates their two properties. Marty was mowing his lawn, and Bob was weeding his prize winning beef steak tomatoes when the two thirty-somethings took a break. What started out as an innocent conversation about the evils of crabgrass quickly turned serious.

“Marty, we’ve been neighbors for ten years now. I can’t help but notice that your daughter, Abby, is a lesbian. Your boy Stevie is a sissy. Your wife, Mrs. Young, has a reputation for spreading her virtue around town,” Bob observed.

...

“Since you’re an atheist, you don’t care about what happens to your kids or to that immodest wife of yours,” Bob leaned over the fence to give his next point extra emphasis. “But have you considered everything about being an atheist? What if you’re wrong?”

It hit Marty like a ton of epiphanies. His eyes got that far off look. Without saying another word he left Bob, the fence, and those prize winning beef steak tomatoes and ambled into his house to have a lie down in bed.

...

"Marty knelt on the floor and prayed to Baby Jesus for forgiveness. From that day forward he stopped rolling his own cigarettes. After asking his daughter What if you’re wrong? she became straight. After asking his son the same question, the boy started beating up homosexuals.
Marty never asked his wife that question. He liked her dirty ways".

3. Bwaaaaa



That's fucking great! My mom asked me that same question once. My reply was, "well, if I start going to church and going through the motions, won't "God" know I'm insicere? I'm fucked either way. Might as well be true to myself, like you taught me."

No more questions from mom.

6. Isn't it?

When I saw the headline I thought it was one of those fake conversion stories that fall apart when people discover the 'converted atheist' has been thanking Jesus all over social media for years.

Boy, was I pleasantly surprised.

4. When people ask me that, I ask them...

What if you're wrong about Odin, and his sons Thor and Baldr? Do you really want to risk the wrath of the Valkyries come Ragnarök?

10. Spot on definition of Pascal's wager:

"Believing in and searching for kryptonite — on the off chance that Superman exists and wants to kill you."
