I really have to ask this question of you atheists out there. If you deny the existence of GOD, if you deny that there is supernatural powers at work, if you deny that there are spiritual forces that influence or guide humans, or if you deny that there is a higher power. That all of these things do not exist, then why do you care if someone;
- Quotes the Bible in a school
- Quotes the bible in an office space
- Why can’t a restaurant owner give a discount for someone who has a church bulletin
- Why can’t there be a display of the Ten Commandments at a court house
- Sing religious themed Christmas carols at school
- Have Prayer at a high school sporting event, or any event for that matter
I could go on with the absurdity of the atheists and the Freedom From Religion Foundation beliefs and actions. Yes I said absurdity, because your actions and beliefs contradict what you are trying to espouse.
If you truly believed in the nonexistence of GOD, if you truly believed that there is no supernatural powers at work, if you truly believed that there are no spiritual forces that influence or guide humans, if you truly believed that there is not a higher power, then what do you care? Really why do you care? If all this stuff is bunk to you then why are you so threatened? What possible outcome of all of this “Religious” thought do you think is going to cause such irreparable harm? If all of this “Religious” stuff has no meaning or power to you then how does it affect your life? Why do you give it a second thought? Why is it OMG or OM… insert whatever, they said a prayer, they read a bible, or they put a plaque on a school wall that had the word GOD on it. Are you really that threatened? If all of this has no meaning to you, has no power to you, and that it does not exist, what, tell me, what could possibly come from it?
I think you actions, beliefs, and misuse of the justice system to forcibly indoctrinate and evangelize “YOUR” beliefs and values on society reveal that you actually are threatened by the GOD you deny and don’t believe in. Your actions actually reinforce the existence of GOD, it reinforces that there is supernatural powers at work, it reinforces that there are spiritual forces that influence or guide humans, it reinforces that there is a higher power.
I see spiritual influence in atheism and it is not good. We are warned about this many times over;
1 Peter 5:8 Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour.
2 Thessalonians 2:10-11 and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false,
Galatians 6:7-9 Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
Romans 16: 17-18 I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.
Habakkuk 1:1-4 The oracle that Habakkuk the prophet saw. O Lord, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not hear? Or cry to you “Violence!” and you will not save? Why do you make me see iniquity, and why do you idly look at wrong? Destruction and violence are before me; strife and contention arise. So the law is paralyzed, and justice never goes forth. For the wicked surround the righteous; so justice goes forth perverted.
Revelation 21:8 But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.”
