Atheism: what it really is all about.

Even if I were to grant that God exists, in some way, shape or form, I would not try to put limits on God by claiming that I can possibly know and understand the supposedly-infinite, or know God’s mind. I would most definitely not say that my God inexplicably likes the same things I do and wants me to do exactly the same things that I want to do and wants me to kill the same people I want to see dead and would punish the same people I want to see punished.

In other words, I would not try to limit the infinite by claiming that it is merely human.

  1. I think I understand what you’re saying. You have friends that you would claim to know. You know much about them. But since you don’t know everything about them you can’t really know them at all.

    Your view that religious people want to kill people is not a true Christian doctrine. Many religious people do want to exterminate those who disagree with the. Many atheists over the centuries have murdered millions because they believe differently also.

    Religion is not the demon to be blamed. Man’s self-nature is.

    The true Christian is willing to lay down his life for his friends. The true Christian desires that all would come to salvation and be saved from their own nature.

    And lastly, According to Scripture God is not a respector of people. In other words God’s likes and dislikes are not determined by people. God calls us to Himself. We are not calling God to ourselves.

    I happen to believe that you have become acquainted with or heard about many religious people. You may know people who follow all kinds of strict doctrines and desire to force others to do the same. There are people who claim Christ that live this way but a true believer and follower of Christ is not forcing the Kingdom upon others. He offers it but allows those around him to freely choose for themselves.

  2. I think I understand what you’re saying. You have friends that you would claim to know. You know much about them. But since you don’t know everything about them you can’t really know them at all.

    You’re saying that because a person doesn’t every everything about a subject, consequently that person knows nothing about a subject. I’m pretty sure that’s a logical falacy whose name I can’t remember at the moment, and too tired to look up.

    Your view that religious people want to kill people is not a true Christian doctrine. Many religious people do want to exterminate those who disagree with the. Many atheists over the centuries have murdered millions because they believe differently also.

    You’re pulling the No True Scotsman logical falacy.

    Can you name, in history, an atheist that targeted religious people solely because of their adherence to a religion?

    Religion is not the demon to be blamed. Man’s self-nature is.

    Religion is man’s self-nature. It’s a reflection of, our dreams, our aspirations, our beliefs about the world, the universe, ourself and others. It is truly unfortunate that our current religions are all mired in the long-past dark ages of humanity.

    The true Christian is willing to lay down his life for his friends. The true Christian desires that all would come to salvation and be saved from their own nature.

    And many have, like during WWII, when Christians sacrificed themselves to save Jews. It is for their sake that I’m not harsher on religion in general and Christianity in particular.

    And lastly, According to Scripture God is not a respector of people. In other words God’s likes and dislikes are not determined by people. God calls us to Himself. We are not calling God to ourselves.

    Of course they are. Every religion, which is to say every god’s likes and dislikes, are governed entirely by the people who founded those particular religions.

    I happen to believe that you have become acquainted with or heard about many religious people. You may know people who follow all kinds of strict doctrines and desire to force others to do the same. There are people who claim Christ that live this way but a true believer and follower of Christ is not forcing the Kingdom upon others. He offers it but allows those around him to freely choose for themselves.

    The free choice is tempered, however, by the knowledge if you don’t choose correctly—a term with no meaning because every Christian denomination claims that it is right and all others are wrong—he’ll burn you in the fiery depths of hell forever and ever.

  3. Original sin brought death and separation from God. But due to God’s love for us we have the opportunity, because of Christ, to come back into right relationship with God. God has done all He can do for us but if we don’t accept His offering why shouldn’t we burn in hell?

    Grace, forgiveness, redemption and deliverance are all on the table. You are the one who is refusing to accept God’s love. He didn’t have to do anything at all for us. He could have allowed all of us to go to hell. But, even though we deserve hell for or unbelief and disobedience, He would rather allow Jesus to take the punishment for us than for us to have to take it ourselves.

    I know that it’s hard to accept a God that you don’t believe in so my prayer is that The Lord God would reveal Himself to you so that you would know that He is.

  4. I sure am glad that you brought forth logical reasoning. This proves that you must believe in a higher standard. You must believe that there is a set laws. You will have to accept that there is a God.

    To bring up logic you are standing on a Christian presupposition.

    The evolutionary system does not allow logic. There is no laws of logic in a no God belief system.

    You are an accident. You live in an ever changing world where everything is relative. You have no solid foundation from which to judge right from wrong. What is logical or illogical.

    With out a set standard, set by a Supreme Being that Created this realm, there is no logic. You cannot use my Biblical standard to judge. You must stay with your no God foundation.

    There is no order, all is chaos, everything is relative, there is no truth. You can’t have it both ways. If you don’t believe in God you can’t use God’s laws to hold up your position.
