Email From An Atheist...

You are really convinced that you’ve got all the answers. You’ve really got yourself tricked into believing that you’re 100% right. Well, let me tell you just one thing. Do you consider yourself to be compassionate of other humans? If you’re right, as you say you are, and believe that, then how can you sleep at night? When you speak with me you are speaking with someone who you believe is walking directly into eternal damnation into an endless onslaught of horrendous pain which your ‘loving’ god created, yet you stand by and do nothing.

If you believe one bit that thousands every day were falling into an eternal and unreacheable fate, you should be running the streets mad with rage at their blindness. That’s equivalent to standing on a street corner and watching every person that passes you walk blindly directly into the path of a bus and die, yet you stand idly by and do nothing. You’re just twiddling your thumbs, happy in the knowledge that one day that ‘walk’ signal will shine your way across the road.

Think about it. Imagine the horrors Hell must have in store if the bible is true. You’re just going to allow that to happen and not care about saving anyone but yourself? If you’re right then you’re an uncaring, unemotional and purely selfish person that has no right to talk about subjects such as love and caring….

Why aren't we running the streets mad? How can we live our lives being afraid of what someone may think about us when we know it could mean an eternity of "... weeping and gnashing of teeth." Matt. 13:42 for many? We shouldn't be able to sleep at night knowing this. Yet, somehow, we manage...

  1. Wow - that's powerful. It really makes a person stop and think! We seem to be so worried about looking stupid or people not responding the way we want them to. But we have to be willing to share the gospel - that's part of our responsibility of being a Christian! We have to make disciples for Jesus and there has to be a sense of urgency in our message - for Jesus is coming soon!

  2. I really agree with Tori that is such a powerful messege. It is really.... mind shocking because as humans we do it so much that it really does help for people to remind us. Thanks Olivia Love you Maddie.M <3
