Happy Easter Atheists (braying)

And he has given us this command: Whoever LOVES God must also LOVE his brother. 1 John 4:21

Easter is the second biggest day of the year for most atheists. This is a day they can really be noticed as they attempt to force everybody to live their godless lives. They want everybody to enjoy the empty useless lives they have become accustomed to rather than the joyful lives they see many Christians living, especially around Easter and Christmas. They know they have the full power and force of the gummit since theirs is the official religion of the Gestapo. As atheists they believe they have evolved over Christians as they think they are the highest evolution of the earth which makes them the only godlike creature on the earth.

As Christians we look at Easter as the greatest holiday on the calendar. We believe the Lord Jesus came down to earth in the form of man to suffer the pains and temptations of mankind. He became the perfect lamb to be sacrificed for our sins which are what keeps us apart from God. We don’t believe we are deserving of his sacrifice or that we could ever earn the right to live in God’s presence but Christ’s sacrifice washes those sins from us and God’s Grace allows us to be forgiven for our humanity. This is why we have hope for the future because we realize we have been given Salvation by the greatest sacrifice and gift ever given, God’s only son.

This hope helps us to survive through times of trials since we know that no matter what happens we will never lose God’s gift. The world can take everything away from us including our lives but they can never take away our faith in the Lord. We know that when times are difficult God will help us through those times and the hope of eternity with him can give us comfort and peace. We understand there will be all sorts of difficulty since God’s hope is eternal. This keeps you moving forward as your faith keeps you looking into the future optimistically since you understand God has a plan for your life.

To go through life as an atheist leads to an empty existence since you have nothing to carry you through the tough times. If you have no concept of an eternity with God or heaven you have nothing to look forward to or faith to carry you forward. To live your life believing in something as sterile as evolution that we are nothing more than an extremely random chance while ignoring the obvious impossibility of those odds is a nothingness existence. So you live your life with no more meaning than a dog and really perhaps less meaning, at least dogs make people happy. So you live your life with no real meaning since you know after seventy years you’re going to die and then rot nothing else, emptiness.

The atheists need meaning so they try to become good people by being liked and doing good deeds. The problem is that they or a group of them decide what a good deed is or who are the good people by consensus or group think. The group may decide it is good such as Hitler’s Germany who said they needed to weed out the weak and infirmed for the greater good of society. Same with our society that says it is better to kill a baby than to bring it into poverty even in a country that prides itself on upward mobility. The group may decide it can destroy a business if it decides the business isn’t satisfying some arbitrary goal they set up which makes them a good person. The society may define what is living a good life and what is not by brainwashing that society into an agenda driven set of morals to make those people try to become good people.

The main problem with atheism is there are no defined set of Commandments or morals to live their lives by so they are continually defining actions themselves. This leads to confusion and moral relativism where they are able to define anything as a good and right moral as long as they aren’t doing something even less moral. There is no personal morality only a fuzzy set of social morals they need to continually follow to counter their personal fallacies. This is not only an empty and dangerous way to live a life but has social consequences which we are seeing every day in society. There is no social fabric in our Godless society, only people living empty lives and excusing every sin as an old fashioned thinking when we are seeing millions being destroyed every day on the street. This is what happens and worse when you have man decide good from evil, he will often choose evil.

So we have one of the biggest days of the year for atheists to rally their troops and make their world more Godless. Their anger and resentment only reveals a giant emptiness in their lives as Christians around the world humble themselves to the amazing gift Jesus gave them and the comfort it reveals. We understand how far we fall short as men of the perfection God is. We understand and have a set of rules in the Bible to live our lives by and although we fail every day we know we have a God who loves us and has the perfect grace to forgive us of those sins. We also know that we will try harder the next day and the day after that to live our lives in his grace and attempt to help our brothers and sisters both here and yet to be born to escape their lives of emptiness and misery. We all know there is a God who wants to be a larger part of our lives to make it fuller and more abundant, but we have to humble ourselves and accept him into our lives to lead it. Once you accept him you no longer are living an empty life but one full of purpose and direction. This is the gift of Easter that we will never deserve.

Happy Easter

I'm sure that article will make Christians feel good in their delusions. But let us celebrate! Two Thousand years ago the Romans nailed a trouble maker to a stick! Let's all have a chocolate bunny...

You go girl!

Viciously attack those evil non-believers to celebrate the Resurrection of the Prince-of-Peace.

Maybe a nice drive-by shooting of the Godless scum in your Easter dress would make the Lord proud.

Kill the Atheists! God is Great! God is Great!

Do you have any idea how stupid you sound? Go hang out in the Middle East and mock Mohammed and Allah.

Let’s see how brave and funny you really are.

Some of our “empty, useless” lives as you claim are much more fulfilling and satisfying than believing in imaginary beings. We don’t rely on false beliefs for our happiness. That says more about your life than ours.

Happy Easter.

You believe in evolution which takes more faith than any Christian can muster. We evolved from a single cell, really? How much faith do you rely on to disbelieve in God?

Happy Easter

Yep. The evidence is there. You just have to look for it. But sites like this are designed to bring conservatives together to defeat the fascist progressive movement and focusing on differences such as religion serve no purpose.

Hum.

You start out by saying “Whoever LOVES God must also LOVE his brother. 1 John 4:21“

Then you go on to make some rather rash generalizations about all non-believers, stating that Atheists lead an empty and useless existence. Generalize much?

I do not personally believe in a supreme being, in God or in any Gods for that matter or go to church so I guess that makes me an atheist. I don’t refer to myself as an Atheist however as I think a number of them act like jerks. While I do not believe, I have absolutely interest in telling you that you shouldn’t. I have in fact stood up for the rights of believers.

I once got personally involved in a situation then the manager of a senior apartment building where my father lived, owned by Catholic Charities BTW, but receiving HUD money, told the residents that they couldn’t hang “overtly religious” Christmas wreaths on their front doors and where prohibited from saying “Merry Christmas” to each other in the common areas of the building as it might be “offensive” and because of her interpretation of HUD rules or some other such nonsense.

After speaking with my dad and several other residents who confirmed that this woman had actually told them this, I called the manger, who refused to take my calls, then I called the Archdiocese who blew me off, and then I called a local conservative and Catholic talk radio host and me and my dad were both interviewed on air about the gross violation of their First Amendment Rights and blew the lid off the story. Long story short the apartment manager was fired as she should have been.

I’ll have you know that I live a very useful and meaningful life. I have a good job and pay my way and my taxes. I deeply love and am very close with my family and have the love of my family and close friends as well. When I went through a bad time financially a few years ago, they stood by me and supported me as I have often done for many of them in the past. I am the type of person who will drop what I’m doing in a heartbeat whenever any of my family or close friends need me. I’ve also come to the aid of complete strangers without asking for anything in return.

I am conservative, I am pro-life, I support the military and believe in the Constitution as written by the Founders of our great nation. I place my hand over my heart when reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and get teary eyed when I hear the Star Spangled Banner.

As far as the Ten Commandments, I have never committed murder, lied nor do I bear false witness against my neighbor or anyone for that matter, nor have I ever stole or committed adultery. I don’t even curse but on rare occasions and I don’t covet my neighbors possessions.

For someone with supposedly no morals, I live a pretty moral and happy life.

Really, what evidence? Do you have a single example of a transitory species in the fossils which is undeniable? There should be millions and there are none so who is living on faith in agenda driven junk science and who is not?

Happy Easter

None of those things matter. You have sinned in your heart and you fall far short of the glory of God and are condemned. You are falling for the oldest lie in the book that you are a good person when you really know better. Pride is an awful hard sin to beat and Jesus warns us about it.

Sounds like an empty existence.

Happy Easter

The Gospel according to St. Matthew 7

1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Sounds like an empty existence.

To me, an empty existence is doing nothing but seeking out and finding fault and commendation in everyone but one’s self. What you don’t know about me is that I would lay down my life to save yours; I would give my very life to defend your right to your faith under the Constitution even if I do not believe as you do. Would you do the same for me?

Happy Easter

And a very Happy and Blessed Easter to you and yours and to all my Christian family and friends! And a blessed Passover to my Jewish friends as well.

Oh, you mean like believing that everything in the universe is just an accident and even though no one has a clue how it all began naturally, it most certainly couldn't have been created by God? That's using your imagination.

Oh aren’t we so perfectly PC. You must be a really “good” person as opposed to us judgmental Christians.

Always said the only scripture atheists know is Judge me NOT...

Happy Easter

That is an interesting question. I believe something had to start everything. And that would include the thing you call God. What that was is the question before us. The great mystery.

As to Christianity. No I don't believe a word of it. Or any other religion. But I have no I'll will for those that do.
