Atheists, be honest with the reason you don't believe in Christianity - it's not because you researched the entire Bible, front to back, found all
possible "contradictions" (which are always out of context), and came to the undeniable conclusion that God is fake/imaginary.
The real reason you will not believe in Christianity is because it would interfere too much in your daily life. You'll feel like you're being forced
to stop drinking and smoking and all the things deemed "wrong" by the Bible that you'll soon start to think that it's nothing more but "control".
So, be honest, and I'll be honest with you - the real Christian is not someone who says, "OK, I'll give up this and that, and I'll go to Church every
Sunday, and I'll donate and help the poor, and I can go to Heaven" - No, a true Christian life starts with anguish and sorrow. It comes when you've
hit rock bottom and realize what you're doing is wrong, that no one is perfect, and that you're destined for hell, and have a DESIRE to
, because it's those people who truly realize the GIFT of God - freedom from Sin, forgiveness and love.
It's those people who realize it's not works that get them into Heaven, but that they are saved by FAITH through the grace of God.
Realize that no one is perfect. I don't care how good you think you are, or how good you think someone else is - when you ask, "how can God send that
person to hell? They're so good!", and let me tell you - no one is good, no one is righteous; all fall short of the glory of God.
Finally, though.. I'll leave you with something to think about.
We all know who the Royal family is, but, can you tell me what goes on behind closed doors? Can you tell me what they do at dinner time? What they
talk about, privately, personally? We can know when, say, the Queen visits another country, or this or that happened, but you cannot know what happens
in their own home.
Christianity is no different. You may think you have all the answers, that you can disprove the Bible because you've researched it thoroughly, but you
don't know the half of it.
You don't know what true Christianity is about.. because you're not a part of our family.
But you're welcome to join.
