The point of “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God’” is that it is an impious, sinful heart that will deny God. The atheist’s denial flies in the face of much evidence to the contrary, including his own conscience and the universe he lives in.
This argument is heard quite a bit these days and takes several forms, with one of the most common being: “I contend we are both atheist. . . .When you understand why you dismiss all other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.”
If more people turned to God and away from sin and evil, many of the world’s problems would go away.
To say that man can reason correctly and cogently apart from having the Bible at the foundation of his thinking sets man up as the standard and the judge over what is true and what is not true; he becomes the ultimate epistemological authority and not the Bible.
If we have an impoverished worldview
That fails to embrace all of reality’s nuances
It means that
In the end
All we can do is
So we dance
To the music of pitiless indifference…
JESUS’ EXISTENCE. That Jesus was a historical individual is granted by virtually all historians and is supported by ancient Christian, Jewish, and pagan sources. Yet modern skeptics often feel that their best strategy for denying the evidence of his resurrection is to deny that he even existed.
There is proof the resurrection of Christ happened just as the Bible says it did.
Bottom line is this. We will all die someday and we will all go somewhere after that. Good news is that we will all end up exactly where we wanted to be, in accordance with how we lived our lives, and based on what we chose to believe.
The title says it all. Religion is not something author Christopher Hitchens finds merely unhelpful, unpleasant, or out of place within his own life. Rather, religion is a poison . . .
The “Am I going to hell?” question is designed to paint the Christian God as a cruel, merciless, and immoral despot who offers absurd “love me or die” ultimatums and a being who is not worthy of worship and His followers as heartless schmucks who don’t care about their fellow man.
