Christians,isn't it laughable...?
...how the unregenerate attempt to define for God's Elect the meaning of God's word ? The Apostle Paul wrote that spiritual matters are discerned by spiritual people and those whom have not been regenerated do not have the Spirit of Christ (those w/o the Spirit of Christ are none of His) and are therefore unable to spiritually discern the true meaning of the scriptures or even theological terminologies (rapture,trinity to name a couple) and meanings of such.

Non Christians CAN'T answer questions or descern how too please God because it makes no sense to them. They see the cross as foolishness and DON'T realise that they are perishing. Weird analogy but its like trying to convince a non smoker that a cigarette could actually taste good...it makes no sense to them and never will till they go through the nausea and choking and finally become addicted. Once you realise God and who is is and what hes done it all changes.

In the world, there are literally 1000s -- maybe millions of books having passages that contain a deeper meaning, that not all can discern. It's a simple fact discovered in the walk of life, if you walk it in a certain way.

I think that, as a former Christian who is now as an atheist much better qualified to speak on the "true meaning" of things, your entire proposition, that believing that an imaginary supernatural being has granted you special powers of perception, is laughable.
I was once a born-again Christian apologist, and I can guarantee you, you're not any better equipped to comprehend mythological texts than anyone else.

If Christians agreed on the meaning of GAWD'S WORD, there wouldn't be 80,000 denominations. Especially funny you should mention the Rapture and the Trinity.

The teachings and doctrines of God's Word are laughable and foolish only to the non-believer.

Yes it is and we are also warned not to engage with them in foolish debates about such things as that will lead many astray.

Atheists, isn't it funny how theists are willing to accept whatever they're told, even when it's clearly a cop out?
