Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

You are free to call Him anything you like but it will do you no good, you will still have to face Him when your time of judgment comes then you will see the truth. By the way before you get all twisted this is not a threat it is a promise.

It is a threat and "Turd" it is then.

"Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear."

You have no evidence this everlasting fire exists.

Religion is for frightened infantile minds who prefer absurdities to uncertainties.

Would you accept the same type of evidence you use to proclaim your 'god' as 'real' to be used against you in a trial?

IMO, if it wasn't for people fearing backlash from family, friends and communities... they'd be closing a hell of a lot faster

"Live in constant fear"?

No, that's your department. After all, the Bible is full of instructions telling its readers to fear the god of the Bible.

"Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your God. I am the Lord your God."
Leviticus 25:17

"Fear the Lord your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name."
Deuteronomy 6:13

"For the Lord your God dried up the Jordan before you until you had crossed over. The Lord your God did to the Jordan just what he had done to the Red Sea when he dried it up before us until we had crossed over. He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the Lord is powerful and so that you might always fear the Lord your God"
Joshua 4:23-24

"Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord."
Joshua 23:14

"If you fear the Lord and serve and obey him and do not rebel against his commands, and if both you and the king who reigns over you follow the Lord your God--good! But if you do not obey the Lord, and if you rebel against his commands, his hand will be against you, as it was against your fathers."
1 Samuel 12:14-15

"But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you."
1 Samuel 12:24

"For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens."
1 Chronicles 16:25-26

"So I continued, "What you are doing is not right. Shouldn't you walk in the fear of our God to avoid the reproach of our Gentile enemies?""
Nehemiah 5:9

"Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling."
Psalms 2:11

"The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The ordinances of the Lord are sure and altogether righteous."
Psalms 19:9

You who fear the Lord, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! Revere him, all you descendants of Israel!
Psalms 22:23

"Who, then, is the man that fears the Lord? He will instruct him in the way chosen for him. He will spend his days in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land. The Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them."
Psalms 25:12-14

"How great is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you, which you bestow in the sight of men on those who take refuge in you."
Psalms 31:19

"Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the people of the world revere him. For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm."
Psalms 33:8-9

No wonder Christians will often refer to themselves as "God-fearing". They use that term to describe themselves all the time. Always "God-fearing" and never "God-loving".
