Christianity does not teach men are worthless. Christianity teaches that unbelievers are worthless. Matthew 7:17 So every good tree produces
good fruits, but the worthless tree produces bad fruits.
Mt 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit
Use a Bible that is the promised preserved version of Ps 12:6,7 and you will see that worthless and corrupt are two different things.
Also keep the context Matt 7 is about the religious elite of Israel only. Christian did not in anyway replace Israel or temple worship that will be
reestablished for them soon.
Romans 1:28 And just as they had refused to continue to have a full knowledge of God, so it was to utterly worthless minds that God gave them up, for
them to do things which should not be done.
Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not
A couple things to note here, 1) "did not like to retain", "refused to continue" are two different things, and "which are not convenient" and "should
not be done" are not the same either. 2) not one man Old or New Testament (except Jesus Christ) had the full knowledge of God. The Bible has limited
knowledge of God, it is limited to his character and purpose concerning the earth and mankind.
Titus 1:16 They profess to know God, but in works deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and found worthless as to every good work. Timothy 3:8
Now in the same manner in which Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, thus these also withstand the truth; men corrupted in mind, found worthless as
regards the faith
Tit 1:16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.
2Ti 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
Again reprobate and worthless are not the same. This confusion of scriptures comes from Bible scholars who do not believe the word of God (Ps12:6,7)
and their works are reprobate as Christian men.
They do teach that man is in a hopeless state of sin nature and stuck in it without any hope to do other than sin and in that even righteous deeds are
filthy. They teach that man is loved by God that he sent his son to be a sacrifice for their sins. Acceptance of that love is a requirement via the
work of his son is the only way of salvation. Now that is what many are against. Atheist's aren't against your religion, they just don't believe it.
I'm not an atheist, and I don't believe it either.
Have you not read, Eph 2:12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants
of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
without hope in the world because only Israel was chosen, but now all men have access to God via Jesus Christ. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am
the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Here in the context it is all men.
and anyone who is not for you is against you.
If you say there is no God you better be sure. Right. Because, that loving God of yours will throw all the worthless unbelievers into Hell's fire
for eternal punishment for not believing Bible stories. I concur with the Humanists. We are the key to humanity's future, Not God.
Unfortunately unsaved men shall be thrown into hell and this I agree but only because of not availing God's cure for mans sinful hopeless condition.
No one has to go to hell but by their own choice to either believe God's word or not believe. No man will go to hell against his will because they
will acknowledge that they chose not the way of Christ but their own way.
Have you not read, 2Pe 3:9 ¶ The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing
that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Why do you think God has allowed this current world system to continue since his begotten's death? He wishes as many to get saved as possible but the
choice lay with us not him. He has done all he can we must now act before physical deaths deadline or his sons return to sit on his thrown over the
It is a simple process of turning to God via the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ
oh yeah the AOG signs are year round most of the Atheist signs only come out on holidays. So? That should be a relief for you then.
Lastly, I do not agree with AOG's sign. God wants us to think freely the problem is man picks and chooses his own way of thinking (corrupt if
unsaved) instead of by faith in God's word they choose one of many forms of science or philosophy (humanism). Remember that religion and philosophy
Philosophy is something we are warned against, Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men,
after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
In that verse we can see many forms of thinking, philosophy being one of those ways and the other that is connected to it is vain deception (include
conception of thought), traditions of men either religious or humanistic, Rudiments of the world thinking only about home, food clothing and
communications, and not giving any thought after Christ.
