Saved by grace through faith!
Atheist: God doesn’t exist.If He did, why would He allow suffering?I would never believe in an imaginary daddy in the sky.God was made up to control us.
I believe in science, not the existence God.When we die, we rot in the grave and never cease to exist again. (No purpose in life)
My reply: If space, time, and matter had a beginning…then the first cause has to be outside of space, time, and matter. A self-existent, timeless, nonspatial, and immaterial being. It had to be Powerful in order to create the universe out of nothing. Intelligent to be able to design the universe with great precision. He had to be personal in order to Choose to create life out of nothing.
God allows suffering because He gave us free will. Allowing us to have free will allow for evil but it also allows us to love. By definition, Love has to be freely given. You can’t force someone to love you, just like God didn’t want to force us to love Him. He gave us the ability to choose to be with God or apart from Him.
Death: If Christianity is true (which I believe it is), we don’t really die, we just change location. If I spend my life believing in God and that Jesus died and rose again…and it turns out to be false….I have lost nothing in the end. I will just be in the grave like everyone else.
But…..If you spend your whole life rejecting God and denying that Jesus Christ is Lord, living in Sin and (God does exist) ….You have lost your soul (and eternal life).
I will choose believing God everytime!
