I don't have faith in my own works, or even in my own faith, but I have faith in the finished work of Jesus the Christ.

On the day the religious realize they have wasted their existence being controlled by such a pitiful delusion I hope that they take pity on themselves and spare their own lives.
How's that randy? Is that hateful or honest?
I do not view those two guys in the video posted earlier to be true atheists. They are religious as anyone out there. It is just that their god is the absence of a god.
Your post deserves the stars of heaven. That's a little h for space. I am deeply touched by your reply. If only AI could just accept the positive message. He likes to think he knows everything tho.
To take it to it's most basic, we are either in slavery to humans (or ourselves), or we are in slavery to God.
God has ordered me to feed the hungry, house the homeless, love my neighbor as myself, love God above all, and all the rest. Those commands push me in that direction.
"'Do what thou will' shall be the whole of the law." I agree that can be lots of fun. There is probably no religion guaranteed to bring more happiness to you on Earth than worship of yourself.
But is it true? Is it worthwhile? Is it meaningful? It certainly is self-centered, and leads to the question "What logical reason do I have to be concerned about anyone else unless they can serve my purposes.
The Atheist not only has to believe there is nothing else,
but he has to hope there is nothing else.
