Are Christians Atheists?

    Tinaldposted 6 years ago

    People usually cannot define what atheist is or when chatting with an atheist you get the feeling that he/she does believe in some form of god maybe not the true God.  So, I have been thinking that maybe Christians could be atheists, too.  Am I wrong?

      No, actually 99% of "Christians" are atheist in manner.
      Which explains why most atheist have a constant, unbridled necessity to mingle/meddle in Christian discussion or the likes thereof.

      An Atheist cannot exist without A Theist!!! Hello.

                  Well, I am not fighting for Jesus cause He does not need anyone fighting for Him.  He is the Word-God made flesh to save us.  I am sharing my ideas with all who wants to share theirs with me, so that I can become the ideal person Jesus wants me to be.  My name is Ronald Celestin by the way.  Tinald isthe nickname my mother gave me.  I seek the writings and I seek other people ideas cause I believe that it is through them that I will comprehend the route that God wants me to take.  Yes, I believe that I am true Christian; I am not perfect, but I am looking for perfection.  I realize long ago that God is everywhere, and so I pay close attention to nature and all of God's creation to the best of my ability.

          As always, with atheists: their anti-belief or anti-doctrine or finding contrasts in the doctrine is solely based on the doctrine they dispute. (Note the endless use of the text pro & con here in Hubivity-land). Without the doctrine or a belief of a doctrine, they would not be atheist.
          I know it is a play on words but:

              How am I religious, Marcus. You, of all people, spend more time arguing religion (here on HP) than any one I have ever encountered. That IS religious! lol

              I am not wanting people to believe or disbelieve, that I think you really do not get. I am trying to bring them up to my level, not leave them down in the mud (their paradox of equation-sensation), fella.

              If you didn't have a belief, Marcus, you would not be here so vehemently, consistently, repetitively, religiously and certainly would not be on a "Quest" to "Destroy all Theology --especially (as you often are sited) Kristians".
              So, please, man, don't make me laugh. I have grilled bigger fish. :l

              You are more of a Theist than the Kristians Are!
              That is why you are constantly repeating why your "religion" causes so many conflicts --because you are passive-aggressive angry with yourself, a true determinist. That is your religion.

              Like I said before, "atheists" are like teenagers...

            Atheism is oppsosing to Theism, they are opposites. Atheism is recognized as a religious belief by the Supreme Court. In fact, jogging can be considered a religion by their guidelines. How can anyone believe absolutely nothing? Atheists harbor their own beliefs, defend their view, etc. Some are as obnoxious as door thumpin' christians. The fact that they seem to nearly exclusively hang out in the Religious forums is a fact that a psychiatrist would have a field day with!

      There cannot be an "entity" titled as "G/god". If so all the elements of the universe and everything therein are deduced to human ideology and (a pitiful) attempt to apply the events of Creator/creation, as a minimalistic stereotype and no doubt a very useless existence of humanity...

        Would you agree with me that time is continous.  It merely events that are changing only to repeat themselves.  For us humans time is a twenty four hours period and it has days, months, and years for us to make sense of it.  The fact that the Creator does not take ownership of our ideologies, which is what makes life worth living.  Though if only we could all love one another we might began to understand God own ideology for us and He might reveal Himself to us all.

          You play upon words and dismiss it while the example of the word is very powerful.  I hipe that you do not think linear.  Believe me I love math and it loves me back, but math alone cannot explain life.  Speaking of ideology is it fact that changing your idea of something will give you a different outcome than the ideology that you had before.  All inventions has been thought of by the inventors first and sometimes by others before them.  A mere change of ideas can be the result of one being rich like Mr Gates or poor.  It is the belief and ideology of Mr. Obama that got him president.  It is the belief and ideology of Mr Gates that got him microsoft and billions of dollars.  It is the belief and ideology of Mr Constantine that got him the victory to make king.  It is the belief and ideology of some Christians who converted Rome into Christians and to stop persecuting them.  If China is the number two nations  as of now, it is its belief and ideology that has created that.

          Nature/The Universe is the lowest level or "starting point" of Creator revealed. Humans were the last object revealed, after which an immediate encompassing of all of it in/by Intangible, where man was directly reflecting that Intangible in a Tangible thing called creation.

              This is not actual/factual.
              To understand ourselves using time or attempting to "understand" the limitation (that is: our brain at work) is useless. The mind is a tool, a storage house of all the element parameters of the universe. These "threads" of information were planted in us from the beginning, so we would fully know --without engaging the mind to understand.

              To understand Creator, we need only abandon our methods.
              Once Creators method is applied, we void time and limitation -as we were once before.

              Humanity is only limited because of choice --and by indulging choice or a necessity, divides itself from Creator, not the other way around.

              Humanity was create to govern "time/seasons", not to be affected by them. He would need to be thoroughly aware of how time worked and its purpose, to govern creation as he was designed to do.

              Something to consider...

                What you is true, but at times our thought goes back to our limitation and thus we became unable to comprehend once more losing precious steps.  It is as if we are our own ennemy.  You spoke about limited by choice, but it is really a mirage of choice, beause only by abiding to the creator way can we go through the right route and even that is not exactly full proof cause for once we expect to have the same exact experince once we start folloming the route.  Some of us, forgetting that we individual, have been quite unhappy about result.

          By your comments it obvious that you are an adherent to Satan.  You accuse others of being brainwashed by him and you yourself have obviously been.

            Arguing is the action of satan. You have obviously been brainwashed by satan.

            You must be open to accept Jesus as your saviour but Yahweh as your God
            Go to biblestudents.com and read relevant articles PATIENTLY and you will know the world of Christianity is wrong.

            Change before it is too late.

              Checked out your site. Haven't the  Jehovah Witnesses predicted the end of the world three or for times already? What makes you sure there's any rush now? They've been proven wrong before.

              But I'm glad to hear you say the world of christianity is wrong. Most witnesses I know won't admit they're not christian. Theological warfare they call it. Basically, they say it's lying for God, so it's acceptable.
