Hover over Romans 1:20-22 for proof of God's existence, and over Matthew 5:27-28 for Judgment Day’s perfect standard. Then hover over John 3:16-18 for what God did, and over Acts 17:30-31 for what to do.

Further to the Atheist Challenge

For some unknown reason, this post completely disappeared without any trace. For those of you who asked about its whereabouts, I will rewrite it from memory, and add a few thoughts:

I (Ray) said, "Besides, for an atheist, life has no rhyme nor reason..."

Adam Nordoli replied: "Dude! That's not true and you know it!"

Okay. What is the purpose for human existence? I don’t mean, what do we do while we are here--finding happiness, partying, helping people, etc. I mean, Why are we here--what’s our purpose?

There was a deafening silence from those folks who normally make comments, and those that did comment readily conceded that they didn't know why they exist.

This is because it's true that the atheist has no idea where he came from (his origins). He has no idea why here is alive (his purpose in being alive) and he has no idea what's in store for him after his death (his eternal destiny). Again, this was made very clear from their comments.

The atheist is like a lost sheep, waiting around for death (like a vicious wolf) to take him by the throat. How bewildering and even frightening for anyone who thinks about the heavy issues of life.

Dictionary: Lost: "Having gone astray or missed the way; bewildered as to place, direction, etc.: lost children."

The Bible: "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way . . . " (Isaiah 53:6)

Jesus: "For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost" (Luke 19:10)

My own testimony: "Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I'm found. Was blind, but now I see."
