Good News For Atheists!

By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked: Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear. They will say of me, ‘In the LORD alone are deliverance and strength.’ All who have raged against him will come to him and be put to shame. – Isaiah 45:23-24

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. – John 1:9

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!’ – John 1:29

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. – John 3:17

I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. – John 6:51

And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself. – John 12:32

If anyone hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge that person. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world. – John 12:47

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. – Romans 3:23-24

For God has bound everyone over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all. – Romans 11:32

For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive. – 1 Corinthians 15:22

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. – Philippians 2:10-11

For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. – 1 Timothy 2:5-6

But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. – Hebrews 2:9

He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world. – 1 John 2:2

Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned … But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many! Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! Consequently, just as one trespass resulted in condemnation for all people, so also one righteous act resulted in justification and life for all people. For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous. – Romans 5:12-19

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. – 2 Corinthians 5:14-19

  1. graham2: What is the point of all the bible quotes ?
    Are they them meant to tell us anything ?

    Now that is funny, I don’t care who you are?

    peace

  2. keiths: Remember, you can be mistaken. Allah cannot. The Quran is Allah’s word. Any problems you see with it are your fault and not his.

    I agree,

    Allah commands me as a Christian (not as a Muslim) to judge the Quran by “earlier revelation” that I have, It clearly fails that test.

    So If the Quran is true then Islam is false even by it’s own standards.

    peace

    Same could be said of the New Testament. If the flood is not correct history, the bible is fiction.

    I didn’t make this up. This is what most Christians have believed.

    They are the theologian’s equivalent of junk DNA. They are relics of the past that are kept around on the off chance that they might turn out to be useful.

  5. Robin: This illustrates why I left “Christianity” and why I no longer use the term to describe myself; I just don’t want to be confused for someone who holds such a view.

    Have you ever read Kierkegaard?

  6. Mung: What tests would you perform to convince yourself that my cat is or is not God?

    If you prayed to my cat and your prayer was answered, would that prove to you my cat is God? If you prayed to my cat and your prayer was not answered, would that prove to you my cat is not God?

    Just what sort of “objective empirical evidence” does it take to convince a skeptic?

    Consider:

    If you prayed to my god and your prayer was answered, would that prove to you my god is God? If you prayed to my god and your prayer was not answered, would that prove to you my god is not God?

    Based on this, I tentatively conclude that the outcome of prayer is irrelevant to any contentions about the existence of spooks.
