Why Atheists Change Their Mind: 8 Common Factors



"The factors that lead to faith are often diverse. It is clear that
every former atheist has walked a unique path to God. Cardinal Ratzinger
was once asked how many ways there are to God. He replied:


“As many ways as there are people. For even within the same faith each man’s way is an entirely personal one.”"

22 Beautiful Altars Worthy of the Sacrifice of the Mass

God's Goodness and Faithfulness


 

"Signs of Spring may of course make it easier to hope..
Yet true hope does not wax and wane with the times, good or bad.
Hope shines most truly indeed, when the times are darkest. Hope is the stuff of gulags and cancer wards, not of cruise ships..
In other words, a time of hope is not the same as a trial of hope.."


"Pope St. John Paul’s talk of a New Springtime did not derive directly from the theological virtue of hope, since hope transcends all circumstances, favorable or unfavorable. It is significant that the first pope, Saint Peter, told Christians, you must be prepared to give “reasons for your hope” (1 Peter 13:15). Yet these reasons are founded in God’s goodness and faithfulness, not in “the signs of the times,” and theological hope concerns eternal life rather than temporal well-being.."

A Way to Resolve the Impasse Over Religious Liberty

 "Christians are worried about their own souls rather than controlling the behavior of others, and are certainly not demanding a general right to discriminate against LGBT persons in everyday business transactions. Unless LGBT advocates are primarily motivated by malice, they should be sensitive to the fact that forcing their neighbors into such cooperation is tantamount, in the minds of their neighbors, to wishing them into hell."
