Thank you for this. Very interesting! In my own experience, I've found that people have rejected God based on false premises, which is to say, that they have been lied to about who God is and what God is about. So, for me, it's not so much a matter of saying the truth in a different way, it's a matter of pointing out lies that have been told in God's name.
But, I admit I was horrified in a talk with my niece. In revealing the lies told about God, often times the true position of God contradicts pc culture or and the platforms and rhetoric of various political parties. That's fine. I asked her if she knew how to decide for herself between the two choices, i.e. who has priority in your life in terms of what you believe and what you hold in your heart.
She told me quickly that was an easy question. What "everyone" considers "right" in the society is the standard by which we all should live. For her, at the time, the Bible comes second to group think and social acceptance. In homes across America, this conversation isn't had nearly, nearly enough of the time.
Well, I gave her something to think about that day. Truths that she could not deny. She left very conflicted and I later found out through her letter that her mind has been working and questioning the group think and the social "catch phrases" ever since. I almost wept at the thought that there was hope for this one.
By the way, it's truly news to some people that the brilliant catch phrase, "a woman's right to choose" is NOT in the Bible. Sure, there is a right to choose and it comes before creation. But, minds have been viciously scrambled. But, yes, yes, yes, there seems to be hope for some, probably in truth, a very few. But, it is worth trying!
I hear you. I have a 21 yo daughter who has abandoned all truth. My heart breaks...
