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.

Mark and Albert's Common Belief

Vukota said...I just wanted to say Ray that I love your blog. I have no doubt that your blog has swayed far more people on the fence to the rational atheist side than your God-fearing Christian side. Anyways, since we're going around quoting Mark Twain, I'd like to leave you with my personal favorite quote of his:

'If I were to construct a God I would furnish Him with some way and qualities and characteristics which the Present lacks…He would not have the spirit of vengeance in His heart. Then it would not issue from His lips. There would not be any hell -- except the one we live in from the cradle to the grave. There would not be any heaven -- the kind described in the world's Bibles. He would spend some of His eternities in trying to forgive Himself for making man unhappy when he could have made him happy with the same effort and he would spend the rest of them in studying astronomy.'"

Thanks for your encouraging words. When an atheist speaks well of me, I'm doing something wrong.

That is a great quote from Mark Twain. Yep, he was a typical idolater. I have just finished writing a book called Einstein, God and the Bible. He was an idolater too. Man has always gravitated towards making a god in his own image. He does this because he doesn’t want moral accountability.

It’s like a heinous criminal looking at good judge and imagining him having no sense of right and wrong, that there was no punishment for crime, and that the judge’s reason for existence should be for the criminal’s happiness, rather than to be vindictive.

Atheists are "reverse" idolaters. They pick out God’s harsh judgments from the Old Testament and create a god who is a tyrant, void of any mercy or kindness. Then they say that they don't believe in that god and feel righteously justified.

Of course, they shouldn't believe in that god, because their concept of God doesn't exist. It’s an idol; a non-existent figment of their imagination. Such is the predictable way of us sinners.
