Atheism

The Death of an Atheist

Satan isn't a myth. Satan is a spiritual entity created by God to run counter to the power of Christ in the world. You don't have to believe in Satan. In fact, the force of Satan is such that it blinds you to its presence. If you are an atheist; you are a satanist. You don't have to want to be, and you don't have to believe you are. That is completely irrelevant. Faith is not required for Satan to do his work.  (Apr 24, 2013 | post #17)

Atheism

The Death of an Atheist

That's garbage. Because the very life you hold so dear, if there is no eternal life is the same as a life that has never existed--even worse, because at the very end of it, the only life-lesson is loss and the realization that it would be better to have never been born.

Atheism

The Death of an Atheist

Everything you say is true. I really think it is. But as the Church disintegrates and goes extinct, atheism raises its ugly head. Atheism is a satanic force intended for no other purpose than to destroy mankind. It is all smoke screens of skepticism, but what it really seeks is the devolution of mankind back into an animal state. Atheism must be stopped.  (Apr 23, 2013 | post #3)

A Prayer for Boston and For Us All

Dear Father, Today You had it in Your plan that many at the Boston Marathon should experience a terrorist attack. There have been injuries; some have gone home, and still more may cross over to You. We accept in faith that Your plan will be revealed to us in time, but until then we pray for the rapid healing of those who will live, the glory of heaven for those who have gone home, and the courage as a nation to act with the power of Christ against those who have wrought these evil deeds. If there is a lesson to be learned, we want the wisdom. If there is love to be shown, we want to be its instrument. If good can come in the face of disaster, we will wait for it, but if war has come again, may we exact Your perfect wrath upon those who have harmed the innocent. Place upon the heads of those who suffer now and those who mourn Your perfect peace, dear Lord. Let nothing be in vain. In the name of Christ, we pray. Amen Br.

Atheism

We think; therefore, God exists

Neurons fire or neurons don't. It doesn't matter if we're talking about one neuron starting the whole thing, or a million neurons starting the whole thing. It's just electochemical activity--and that doesn't give rise to consciousness. There is absolutely no mechanism for it.  (Apr 4, 2013 | post #8)

Atheism

We think; therefore, God exists

In his book, There is a God, ex-atheist Anthony Flew writes: ďEven if one subscribes to some far-fetched scenario of the origin of life, one would have take leave of oneís senses to suggest that, given certain conditions, a piece of marble could produce concepts. And, at a subatomic level, what holds for the table holds for all the other matter in the universe.Ē The bottom line is that matter cannot give rise to mind. Itís not possible. For the very thoughts we possess would have to be triggered by neurons, and those neurons would have to be triggered in such a way that one neuron or one set of neurons would trigger another in a chain until the thought was finally manifested. But somewhere the thought has to originate and that would take us all the way to the very first neuron that fires. That first neuron would have to hold all the information about that thought in such a way that it knew just how to start the chain reaction. The very simplest thought would require a miracle from a single neuron, and that simply isnít possible. The existence of thoughts are ultimately the poof of the spiritual world. And if there is a spiritual world, and we know that we came to exist at our birth, then there must be a creator who is also spiritual in nature. Therefore, because we think, God exists. Br.

Atheism

Atheists Cannot be Moral

I spent ten days in Turkey once. I remember it fondly. I had a cold. I went to a pharmacist, and He didn't speak English, but I coughed and he gave me a little brown bottle and motioned as if it was only reasonable that I should use is. I paid hardly anything for it, went back to my hotel room, had no idea of the dosage requirement, drank it all, and...well, I wasn't coughing anymore, that's for sure. I think I actually took a magic carpet ride that night. I'm not sure. Anyway, I do like Turkey. :)  (Mar 29, 2013 | post #53)

Atheists Cannot be Moral

Veridicans believe the only thing that really exists is God, and all other things are created from His substance: me, you, Jesus, everything. We also believe the human purpose is to be Christ, just like Jesus was, and that that's what he was trying to teach us. Christ, we believe, is God, conscious of Himself, from within His creation. http://veridican.o rg  (Mar 29, 2013 | post #50)

There are morals because atheism is false. There is a God. That's why atheists still believe in "morals. "  (Mar 29, 2013 | post #49)

Atheism

Atheists Cannot be Moral

You don't understand why Jesus was crucified. And I don't follow the Holy Bible. The Veridican canon consists of one book: The Veridican Gospel of Jesus ChristSo you think morality is just consequences for actions. Fine. That's an atheist mentality, but that's not morality. Morality is knowing right from wrong, even when there is no consequence. So if you kidnap a child and murder it and don't get caught, or if the child is of no consequence to anyone, you're still in the wrong. Hold on...I have to put on some Christian music...okay, go ahead, you were sayingSlavery works. It would have kept working, as well. There was no evolutionary reason, no Biblical reason, no economic or political reason why it should ever have ended. It was not good for society in any way that it ended. I think slavery is wrong. And so did many of my fellow Californians and Coloradans during the Civil War (I'm a transplant to Louisiana). So, why should it have ever ended? On what basis? If morality is not based on authority, and only on negative evolutionary consequences, then I should be able to do anything that won't affect my genetic material being spread. Since I already have three grandsons, I could basically do anything I wanted, couldn't IAudrey Assad just sang this verse on my iTunes (speaking of God): [I]You live in a million places You're fingerprints can be seen on a million faces[/I] In two lines, she gives me every reason in the world to be good. In all your lines all I see is an atheist desperately trying to make the cold mechanism of evolution account for morality, too. Any regrets?  (Mar 29, 2013 | post #48)

Atheists Cannot be Moral

You know, I'm pretty popular in forums (not in a good way), and I get a lot of responses to my posts. I skim them very quickly. I was about to address your post, but then you decided to play the "insult" card--atheists always do. They can't help themselves. So, I am ignoring you. I mean, I'm responding now to let you know the ground rules, but if you think you can insult me into responding to you in the future, think again. :)  (Mar 28, 2013 | post #47)
