What would a wise person want?
Does a man locked in chains, inside a prison want others to just tell him about the joy outside the prison. Does that man want to hear how we can drive where we want, and eat what we want? Go to the store when we want?
Would that man in prison rather hear about how we that are free, are going to get him out of prison, that he may be free?
What does a wise man pick?
Jesus Is Lord.
I am not sure who is the person in prison and locked in chain your analogy refers to. The believer or the unbeliever? LOL, .. , kidding.
However, your analogy fails because I know virtually no atheist who considers herself in a sort of intellectual or spiritual prison, whatever that means. I wonder where you got this idea from. Of course, I might be wrong, but I fail to see the wisdom of asking freedom from a non existing prison.
being that you are a nonbeliever, Joe seems to like to just post bible passages, I imagine less can go wrong that way....lol
