Why do people who don't believe in God spend so much of there time saying the Bible and God...
In saying this if these people don't believe in God or His word why waste so much time? They existence in God and His word is proven true by such strong unbelief. God is the one that is causing them not to be able to rest or have peace on this subject because He doesn't want them to forget that He is there.God's going to exhaust these people to bring them face to face with Jesus the only one that can save them.So why? If were wasting our time, which were not-why waste your time on the subject of God or His word if it's really nothing and not true?
Well, cause, we're afraid you guys will eventually destroy the world.
I find religion to be an interesting topic of study and debate.
It's not "a waste of time" because it entertains me.
It's like going to a movie or playing a board game. Nothing is really being accomplished, but it's still fun to do.
BTW, to say that someone debating the existence of your god makes him real is a ridiculous argument of which the logic is extremely flawed.
If I walk up to a "sports fanatic" and tell him that, "The Bulls never won a Championship," he is going to debate me until the cows come home.
I could then say (using your logic), "Since you're debating it so much then that's PROOF that they never won a Championship."
Just because someone disagrees with you doesn't make YOU right. That's just silly to say.
Also, I will sometimes be talking with my fellow "non-believers" (sometimes in these forums and sometimes in the real world), and will - invariably - be attacked by some Christian who's "pissed off" that we would dare to even think of questioning their God.
So - using your logic - these Christians that come and "debate" us are just proving us right. See? Doesn't make any sense does it?
If you don't enjoy debate (which I doubt is the case) or you would like people to stop questioning your beliefs, then simply keep it between you, your family, and your church.
However, if you come to me and tell me that:
1. I have inherited the original sin of Adam and Eve.
2. I require the salvation of the blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
3. That there is only ONE God and his name is Yahweh.
4. That your particular brand of "Bronze-age Palestinian" mythology is the ONE TRUE religion.
5. That the earth is 6,000 years old.
6. That the Grand Canyon was created by the Flood of Noah.
7. That there was ever a "world-wide flood" around 4,000 years ago.
8. That the Jews were slaves in Egypt (although ALL evidence suggests otherwise).
9. etc. etc. etc.
Then you better be ready for a debate. Because just like that "sports fanatic" I mentioned earlier I am a "Fact Fanatic," and will ask you to support your claims with VERIFIABLE, EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE. Something NO religious person has ever managed to do.
Anyway, like I said, I enjoy debate.
2st by reading the bible you know how unworthy you are and it can convict you and people jut don't like that but, its also teaches you the way to. and Jehovah will harden an unbeliever heart to.
Because we are continually beset by people who want to speak to us by God. We don't believe there is a God. That's not because we haven't studied the topic. Recent research showed that atheists knew the bible better than Christians did.
We do not talk about god amongst ourselves.
However, if everytime we are in the presence of someone who insists about taling about God, it gets rather irritating. So, in order to move off the topic, we tell them that there's no such thing. Hopefully, theyre sensitive enough to cues and change the topic.
Not such luck.
So what must we do? Sit there and listen to it all day when we're rather be talking about something that actually has some justification?
Firstly, the existance of God is usually throw into a disbelievers face, his/her response is to deny his existance. Simple as that?
why is it that some religious people spend all day on here trying to use quotes and parables and predictions to prove how informed they are then later complain when people who think for themselves debate whether they are right or wrong. ?
Because each has already judged the other as false, not realising that by such a judgment then have already proven themselves to be false in themselves,
because neither knows Truth so they must defend their "Truth" which is actually their falacy.
why do people ramble on and speak for god like you know what is going on in his head. If you have been privy to see him much less get all this first hand information why are you still on earth talking gibberish. You should be at another level as well as "helping" those who need what you have to offer. You people kill me because you know nothing. You're just repeating what you heard someone say in church. As well as separating yourself in the name of I'm better than you. You have no shame in pointing your finger and damning someone to hell while you raise your head as though you know that you're going to heaven. ok if you say so.........omg I can't believe that, you'll know you're worthy wth!
From my own experience, others beliefs were forced on me since I was born and I lived in a household that was dominated by talk of God and the Bible - but in a very dark and controlling way. Meanwhile, many of the same people around me who were so keen to ensure that I was indoctrinated into their beliefs also showed what hypocritical and base characters they could be underneath their "Godly" exterior when they thought nobody was looking. If their God exists, why do they think he or she only watches when it is convenient for them (ie, not doing something wrong)? If God exists, certainly he or she is constant, omnipresent and omniscent.
These beliefs were forced upon me all those years by those who really didn't live what they preached. Certainly, it is fair for me to, with all sincerity, share my beliefs/questions with others who either had similar experiences or explore how others were able to come to the conclusion that there is no God.
Personally, I am glad that people can discuss their disbelief in God as much as there are those who can discuss their certainty that God does exist. It's a worthy and meaningful subject of discussion/debate and could change someone's life - hopefully for the better, to be able to come to their own conclusions with the help of others' experiences.
i believe that the answer lies in the fact, that because of religion the multitudes of our species walk blindly believing in saviors, sin, ritual superstition, guilt, shame and all the other horrors of knee bending lepers. Religious leaders are a Pariah on humanity... the answer only resides within the individual, If a God is what you need believe so be it. If your God does exist, "It's" very disappointed in its creation and all the murder done in its name. wake up!

I just saw a film called, "The Last Exorcism" a couple of weeks ago, and the film has a main protagonist named Reverend Cotton Marcus. Now, even though he's performed exorcisms since he was like 10 yrs old, and he's been studying the bible since he was a kid. Going onto become...

As a Christian, do you think of atheists and agnostics as lesser people ? Please care to elaborate.

Just a question, but it would seem if there really were no God, then Atheists couldn't exist. Is Atheism a religion? They definitely seem to be unified by a common belief.

Why are atheists so brave when questioning Christianity, but crap themselves when it comes to Islam?The 'art' of 'Piss Christ' and the 'hate crime' of disrespecting a Koran?Are theists just bullies who pick on those who keep quiet but cower and suck up to those who won't put up with it?

If God is like a light switch in a dark room, why is it so hard to show it to a non-believer?This appeared in a forum post recently:"They are led to stand before the doorstep of a dark room ~ and encouraged to discover if there is any light-switch ('God') inside it. The only way to find out ~...
