I feel sorry for you who deny God and His teachings, because when He calls you, and you stand at the gates of Heaven, but are denied entrance, you will beg to be let in, but it will be too late. If you want to be truly happy, then stop denying the truth!

This is where I get irritated with religion as it is so judgemental. I judge no one for their beliefs but when they tell me I have to believe in what they believe it is sheer arrogance. I went to a funeral the other day in an Anglican church and instead of honouring the man who died the preacher went on and on about that if you do not believe in JC then you are lost and with hope. my wife, who is jewish, was visibly offended by the repeated claims that we are without hope and sadly left that funeral with a large degree of sadness for lack of respect shown for the man who passed away and the almost anger at anyone who did not believe in JC. Shame on that man.

Most Protestant denominations believe in the doctrine of "grace alone", Sola gratia.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sola_gratia

According to this doctrine, no one "deserves" to go to heaven, so there's nothing one can possibly do to earn admittance. The only reason that one can be admitted is by divine grace.

So, in many cases, the judgmental people are not only being jerks, they are also simply wrong about church doctrine.

This comment disgusts me. In my personal belief, you do not have to believe to be let into Heaven. The knowledge of religion is there to guide us to become good people- not to say how if you don't believe the same thing, you are an evil person. And the same goes for Christians. In my opinion, believing won't get you into heaven. Instead, being a good person who benefits the world in total will. So instead of going around insulting non-Christians, please use your religion to become a good person.

You're the kind of religious person I don't mind. I don't agree with you, and I think any form of God belief in the absence of evidence is irrational, but ultimately, your message is one of love and tolerance, and that being a good person is what matters. I can't argue with that.

Totally agree. When the Bible talks about judgement, it implies that it is out of our hands and that we, as humans, don't have a right to judge other people. What the Bible says that we can do is show justice and mercy to others, regardless of race or class or gender or creed.

As Jiaozira says below though, the most vocal proponents of religions/ideologies are typically their most extreme, which leads to distortions of what the true meanings of those religions/ideologies. Unfortunately, this means that people have an idea of Christianity always being super conservative, and that the voices of more liberal Christians like me and ClutchNferno often get sidelined. Although I'm hoping that will change, especially because Joe Biden is pretty liberal and has been outspoken about his faith.

I believe that many latter day atheists were dragged to church multiple times a week (if not a day) by parents/guardians and

grew to so hate the ritual that they chose atheism as adults. I

am also opposed to the blasphemy of many religious rituals,

but it does not lead me to deny the existence of the Almighty.

Do people choose not to believe in God? I don't think that what you believe is your choice as such. Your conjecture might be true other than that occasionally, but I can't think of many cases where that leads to very vocalised or passionate atheism. More likely I would imagine it would lead to just not going to church. Most atheists who will talk about it willingly are atheists just because there is no evidence that any god exists.
+2
Level 63
Mar 24, 2021
While that might be true for some atheists, I can assure you that, as far as I'm concerned, my atheism has nothing to do with the church. I like churches (the buildings), and I like religious ritual (it looks like fun dress-up, and there's usually parties afterwards). Like any institutions, churches do some good, and some bad. On balance, I think the world would be better off without churches, but there's also some wonderful people that are part of them and use them to do good. None of this has anything to do with my atheism, which comes down to two things: lack of evidence for god, and lack of a coherent logical claim about god. That's really it.

That's not factually correct. You probably know very many atheists, they're just not vocal or in your face about it. They would probably say so if you had a conversation on religion (or perhaps not..there are many "closet atheists" that don't feel comfortable sharing their beliefs for a variety of reasons. There are certainly very vocal atheists, just as there are vocal proponents of practically every belief (feminism, christianity, etc).

As opposed to religious people, who are usually so quiet and discreet about it. I mean, look at all those monuments to atheism in every city in the world. Look at all those atheists thanking atheism after a sports event, or reciting atheisms in public. Look at all those atheists wearing special magic necklaces, or pieces of clothing, to show their atheism. Must be sooo annoying to not be an atheist in this world, when you get atheism shoved in your face all day everywhere!

"Eternal Damnation", as I was taught, does not mean eternal suffering in hell fire or some other form of intense punishment; it simply means being condemned to remain dead once you die. The dead are aware of nothing, feel nothing. know nothing. Therefore, it is ludicrous to think that they will suffer in hell fire. To many believers, the prospect of not being resurrected is punishment enough to impel them to live as righteous a life as we imperfect mortals can..

Charity is the word used in the KJV of the Bible instead of "Love", for 1 Corinthians 13:4, perhaps that could be accepted as correct as well.
