A letter from an atheist

This was a letter Ray Comfort (many know him from the Way of The Master series with Kirk Cameron) received from an atheist, read it and meditate on it.  Do you fit into the category of what this atheist is saying?

“You are really convinced that you’ve got all the answers. You’ve really got yourself tricked into believing that you’re 100% right. Well, let me tell you just one thing. Do you consider yourself to be compassionate of other humans? If you’re right, as you say you are, and you believe that, then how can you sleep at night? When you speak with me, you are speaking with someone who you believe is walking directly into eternal damnation, into an endless onslaught of horrendous pain which your ‘loving’ god created, yet you stand by and do nothing.If you believed one bit that thousands every day were falling into an eternal and unchangeable fate, you should be running the streets mad with rage at their blindness. That’s equivalent to standing on a street corner and watching every person that passes you walk blindly directly into the path of a bus and die, yet you stand idly by and do nothing. You’re just twiddling your thumbs, happy in the knowledge that one day that ‘walk’ signal will shine your way across the road.

Think about it. Imagine the horrors Hell must have in store if the Bible is true. You’re just going to allow that to happen and not care about saving anyone but yourself? If you’re right then you’re an uncaring, unemotional and purely selfish (expletive) that has no right to talk about subjects such as love and caring.”

    Like all atheists, this one struggles with profoundly muddled thinking.

    First of all, Ray Comfort has dedicated his life to warning people away from the horrors of hell and is trying to tell them about the offer of salvation which will ensure that they never experience eternal separation from God.

    Second, this atheist, like all atheists is not blindly walking toward everlasting destruction. There is no ignorance involved in where this atheist will wind up. In fact, so determined is he to reach a destination void of all hope that he is willing to step over Jesus’ dead body to get there.

    Third, and again like every atheist I’ve ever interacted with, this one in an infantile manner expects Ray Comfort or God or whoever to force him to not do what he is determined to do. It’s pitiful.

    It is interesting that on one hand they deny a God because they don’t want to answer to any higher authority, but on the other hand they come up with these types of comments that would create a God that forced them to obey.

    You can’t have it both ways. Either you have freewill and you can choose to obey or you have a dictator and the choice is no longer yours.

    Very valid points MAKARIOS!

    though it is only by the grace of God, who chooses us, that we are able to choose Him (Romans 9:16)

    thanks for the comments, they were really helpful
