Atheist Monument Momemtum

Source

A Stone of Will

On June 29, 2013, atheist unveiled a monument in Starke, Florida the first on government property in the United States and probably not the last. The monument makes a strong statement of their views condemning the laws of God. They cannot call this action an act of faith, they have none. Knowing prayer is not an option for them; they rely on their own strength and carnal wisdom to get by in and enjoy life as they know it; one without meaning and void of Gods’ blessing. The monument is made of granite and will remain standing quite possibly till the end of time. The Ten Commandments is the Word of God which also is etched on a slab of stone but is alive and will live on forever.

A Sign of Woe

The monument is said to be functional in two respects; the form of a bench used as a seat and second; an admission of defeat. You see the atheist could not have the neighboring monument of the Ten Commandments removed, so they decided instead of fighting city hall and Christians they would join them! Hanging onto the old saying “You can’t fight city hall,” they now revel in their accomplishment. But to implicate they are joining Christians with a monument only makes a mockery of their own defiance of a Living God. They have chosen to separate themselves to a life of darkness here on earth to an eternal life in absolute misery and suffering with their master of deception.

American Atheist

Defined is the atheist lifestyle. "An atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An atheist accepts that heaven is something for which we should work now – here on earth – for all men together to enjoy. An atheist accepts that he can get no help through prayer, but that he must find in himself the inner conviction and strength to meet life, to grapple with it, to subdue it and to enjoy it. An atheist accepts that only in a knowledge of himself and a knowledge of his fellow man can he find the understanding that will help lead to a life of fulfillment." http://www.atheists.org/about-us

A Sign of the Time

Atheist have removed themselves from the knowledge of God and therefore from fellowship with Him. The apostle Paul wrote Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done." (Romans 1:28)

With this choice of free will atheist have no light now or eternal life in heaven. It would be wise if they were to use that seat of granite to sit and meditate on the neighboring Ten Commandments, or they will soon have a bench warmer they can't get away from!

God Deserves Our Trust

July 30, 1956 was the date "IN GOD WE TRUST" was made the national motto for America. In 1957 the motto was placed on currency. But as the years pass, recognizing this motto and pledging allegiance to our flag and God has all but disappeared. It is out of the complacency of Christians and our government that this is being allowed.

Current Currency

It is quite ironic though how much we treasure that dollar bill. Those who place their trust in the comfort of money or anything other than God is going to be in a world of hurt as our days on this earth draw near to the end.

I agree faith is not a competition. For me as a Christian I look at myself in a race; a race in which I am the only contender. Consider me though as a tortoise instead of the rabbit. I will make it to the finish line; I’m just not in a hurry to get there:)

JMcFarland,

With billions of people in the world, all of whom are individuals, it is natural to generalize when talking about specific group of people. Otherwise, it would be impossible to write an article. Do you not generalize when talking about a group? Have you never generalized when talking about Christians?

We all have opinions, although different, and we should be able to express them. So the only reason I can gather that you would say his article is "sad" is because you don't share the same belief.

Liberty Cell,

Faith is not a competition. One does not and cannot measure it.

@Timely - that is more or less what I said.

To have faith whether great or small, one needs to have something to have faith in. The faith a Christian has, grows as they mature and are made aware of Gods will for them. As they develop in Gods will having faith in Him becomes second nature.

Having faith in God should come easy. I much prefer having faith that grows in a real God, than have faith in humans with limited capabilities.

Infinitely more faith is required to be an atheist than to believe in Deity.

JMcFarland,

Sorry you had the impression I deleted or ignored your comment. It was human error that I forgot to press approve. So to count; you have responded three times in which this is now my third response in return. I am glad to hear from you and have not deleted any of your comments. Please check on your end and please resend any of which you sent that for whatever reason I had not received. I welcome your comments and have nothing to hide.

Have a good evening:)

further conversation is impossible when my comments continually disappear. I can only infer that you're not interested in an actual conversation, and you just want to receive the kind of comments that you agree with.

You did, in fact say "Even on my last visit to see him, he was still void of the light of Christ". That is what I was referring to, and had you not deleted/ignored my comment, it would be evident.

JMcFarland, I did not mention anything about seeing the light of Christ. A Christian has the light of Christ by faith living inside of them which brings to life the Word. It is wonderful that you have read and studied the Bible, but without the guidance of the Holy Spirit, one is unable to learn more than history.

The light of Christ guides me daily and I understand and am thankful that I am not living in darkness anymore. If you understand why you were not always an atheist then you should understand why you are one now. Sometime to justify our choices in life we look for a means to deem them acceptable.

The love of Christ is not something you have to buy into. It is free. Christ died for our sins and He paid the price so that we would be free from the bondage of sin and have life everlasting.

I wish you well and will pray for you.

I don't understand what you're talking about. Lot of atheists pass without seeing the "light of christ" because there's no reason to see something that cannot be demonstrably proven. And before you lump me (a complete stranger) in with "them" (the unnamed atheists this hub is in reference to) understand that I was not always an atheist. I went to bible college. I read the bible in 4 different languages. I am not ignorant to what your religion teaches. And I see no reason to buy it.

Yes I do. Some can not get past being intellectual, and recently another has passed. Even on my last visit to see him, he was still void of the light of Christ. As far as assumptions, I have made none about character or intent. I do make mention of freedom of will which we all have. Your right too, it is sad.

Do you actually know any atheists? From your hub, it appears not. You just like making assumptions about their character, their intent and their freedoms. It's sad, really.
