Even when I Have Nothing To Say About Christianity, some of them get all butt-hurt about it. Yay me! I’d take a victory lap – if it was a real accomplishment.
One fundamental reality that those who call themselves atheists don’t realize is this; there is an extraordinarily cunning being who is elated that they refuse to believe in God and will do what it takes to keep them in that state of delusion.
I mean, he even offered God in the flesh incentives to deny Himself.
Awwww. Did someone kick your imaginary puppy??! I’ll pray that Jesus comes to stroke your fevered brow, and make everything all better…. while you’re busy refuting these memes. That Iceland one might be a problem. You could claim that God-appointed, Donald Trump was prevented from buying it, and folding it into the Holy Christian American Empire.
So few words – so many misconceptions.
The most cunning trick that the Mother Church ever pulled, was to convince the faithful that Satan exists – and They (and only They) can protect you, if you just give up…. 10% of your income, your autonomy, your ability to think – critically.
The language usage is devious, and questionable, being used to prop up shaky assumptions and claims. The existence of God, or the Devil, is not a fundamental reality, unless and until proof or at least sufficiently convincing evidence is presented. Your blind belief, no matter how strong, does not ensure that it is the truth.
those who call themselves atheists Atheist do not “call themselves Atheists,” like it was some trendy term they just pulled out of their ass, any more than Christians just call themselves Theists. These are linguistic definitions, based on individuals’ belief, or lack thereof. Some people’s gullibility level is just higher (or lower) than others’.
Atheism is generally, just not believing in the existence of God – or gods. It is having not been presented with sufficiently convincing evidence. There are some Atheists who would refuse to believe in the Christian God. Most Atheists I know, myself included, would quickly and rationally believe – just as soon as that evidence is provided. To even suggest otherwise is foolish. I mean, c’mon, salvation, eternal life, Heaven…. and especially Hell, if they were clearly shown to exist. It is the religious who most often reject any position which does not agree with their presuppositions.
Especially for the believers in the tripartite God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – there are some convincing refutations. If Jesus is God, who did He pray to in the Garden of Gethsemane? While he was on the cross, He said, “Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do.” If Jesus was God, why did He have to report this? Was the Internet down that day??!
Bobby Butthurt has unintentionally provided me with yet another contradiction – an arguing point that I had not previously considered. I mean, he even offered God-in-the-flesh incentives to deny Himself. If Jesus is God incarnate, creator and owner of infinity, and all that is – what could Satan possibly offer him as incentives??! What do you get a deity Who already has everything? 😕
