Atheistic Rage: The Constant Need For The Reinforcement Of Disbelief

I was just looking back through many of the last year's post in our “I Am Christian” group and noticed a lot of posts by Atheists. Odd, I don't feel the uncontrollable urge to join the “I Am Atheist” group and post concerning my faith in Jesus Christ! Firstly, that would be lying because I am not an Atheist. Secondly, it would be just plain rude.

Isn't it strange that Atheists spend so much time talking about God? I can bet that most people who claim to be Christian will go about their business all week and not mention God even once! (This isn't a good thing, but it tends to be the case in these modern times.) This doesn't seem to be the case with most Atheists that I have met. For them, the topic of EVERY conversation has to revolve around their personal state of disbelief. It's an obsession to constantly prove to themselves that God doesn't exist.

In the Methodist (Wesleyan Arminian) tradition we teach of God's "prevenient grace". This preceding grace is what awakens, convicts, and draws the sinner to seek salvation in Jesus Christ. We believe that God's gift of salvation is freely available to everyone. The Atheist also feels this call to salvation but can't bear facing the reality of God. This would mean they aren't the center of their selfish and materialistic universe. It seems they have to constantly reinforce their disbelief; even to the point of banding together in organizations that almost seem to be religious in nature. Like naughty children they might as well put their fingers in their ears and yell, “LA LA LA, I CAN'T HEAR YOU!” over and over again. But, God still calls out to them, and deep down in their hearts they know it.

Atheists don't look for evidence of the living God. Their denial spiritually blindfolds them! The physical evidence of our God is all around us. Just like I would explain it to a child, at the simplest level: Something material cannot come into existence out of nothingness. Mathematically 0=0, 0 cannot be made to equal 1. At some point in the distant past there has to be a point of origin and an inspired creative event. Einstein discovered the direct relationship of matter to energy. But, for us to exist you still have to start with matter or energy!

The spiritual evidence of our God is just as obvious. We create moral standards because we are the creation of God. We as the human race have an inherited, instinctive, knowledge of good and evil because God is good and Satan is evil. We have self-awareness because we have immortal souls. The Universe has physical laws because God mandated them. We love because God first loved us.

Why do people bring up people like Stalin when they try to bash Atheists. There are some bad Atheists, yes. But there are horrible Christians too. Do I need to remind you of the crusades? or Reconquista? Or practically any time during medieval history. For Christ's Sake, during the bubonic plague some places response was to burn jews! And there is a diffference between secular, and atheist.

Here's a list of militant atheism: Stalin, Mao, Pol Pott, Kim Il Sung, Vladimir Lenin, Kim Jong Un, Kim Jong Il, soviet union league of militant atheists, Soviet Union, China's persecution of Christians and many more. Notice how MANY militant/avowed atheists are left wingers? Communism is basically FAR FAR left wing.

are you knight runner?" under a fake age and profile ur not a teenager I know that much

not a teenager? I see people bring up those topics right infront of me nearly all the time and have read the bible, I admit most of my generation are immoral, 15 years old and turning 16. Nope but since you let me know about knightrunner I just looked at his posts and he has some good points too.

And just because I am FAR RIGHT wing doesn't mean I'm not a teenager, I see these topics and all these horrible immoral stuff happen IRL such as other people who are teens bragging about going outside to drink and coming home to assault his father physically. I am sick of seeing all this immorality happening all the time and if such a society existed where it was banned I would move there. I just have not rebelled like most others have.

I also know you new agers want to create a new world order called a type 1 civilization. I've also been persecuted for being a true christian and will not keep silent or quiet about it, I will follow bravely no matter what ultimate price I will pay for it.

new agers/ teenagers are all idealist, then as time goes on they realize the world is not so much like they thought, they begin to understand what it takes to make change. then life happens, job, children, marriage, illness and other life responsibilities.takes over.

isn't ur bright red icon the KKK symbol ? it looks like it

yea I imagine you and him are from the same boat....

that is why I thought you were knightrunner under a fake profile or just a different profile to hide his other side from the women he hates on, here on EP.

k/t said...>I've also been persecuted for being a true christian and will not keep silent

g/b>>>>you can shout what ever you want from the mountain top till the cows come home for all I care, go for it ........ that is not what I was commenting on..

you are tripping on me when I haven't even said anything about ur beliefs, I could care less that your a Christian. that is ur thing if it makes u happy go for it.

Im Shure there are things id disagree on if we were to sit and shoot the breeze but that's life.

but I do find it hard to hear from you that you are a Christian and u agree with a one of the well known Women haters here on EP

aren't Christians suppose to love all no matter what?

reason why I ask is. last night I saw a show on the kkk and they had the same red symbol on their white robe.

Nobody is perfect, everybody has a bad and good part. I may hate what some people do but I do not hate the people themselves.

My first thought was Templar Knights. Templar knights, in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross, were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades.

knight what "good points" do you see in knightrunner?

Such as warning us about the liberals. The Roman empire collapsed because of by definition liberal policies.

do you know what he means by liberals? he feels that liberals are women and we are out to make mince meat out of men.

that is what he means by liberals, he believes in his mind that women are responsible for the woes of the world DO YOU? (even though statistically men hold more of the higher offices than women do )

he is afraid of liberals, meaning ....> women ruining the world for men. he is very insecure about losing his male opportunities to women, ARE YOU?

and if you like i can show you a list of the vulgar comments he and his posse has said, along with the nasty life threatening remarks they have made towards me and other women here on e/p.

I have had my child and my self threaten by way of gunshot, saying they would like to see my head shot off and had my child within their possession (kid nap)..why ??

because I believe in equal rights for all and I believe women should be able to enjoy the same rights as men do ...DO YOU? and I believe women should be able to have other options made to them outside of making babies and cooking and cleaning for men.

if a woman wants to do that as a life choice then she should go for it, but in the event of divorce and/ or her husband passing away, she needs to be educated to help her self.

now tell me how can a " true Christian" say he agrees with a man who would do that to women and children.... I DONT!

Of course I believe in the equal rights you mentioned but as long as its not liberals such as the LGBT rights movement.

what is LGBT

I think if they the ones who keep attacking moved to a State Atheist country like North Korea they will be very happy there and will no longer have to even attack Christians anymore because it is State Atheism, it will suit them very well and they will enjoy living there.

And that people is what we call projection lol

RED/SOCIALIST ALERT! Persecution against true Christians is already happening in real life! Example: Christian teens being picked on and harassed

I am glad that you don't go into other groups and tell them why they are wrong. It annoys me to no end when people surf groups just to argue and put people down. Personally I delete such foolish behavior when ever I find it attached to my stories and then ignore it. I wish more people did so. It would take the fun out of it for those who can not follow the rules

i want to say that just because you dont go into atheist groups and talk about your faith in god it doesnt mean that the same goes for all christians. i have seen both sides. so dont think that religious people are perfect because you have seen SOME atheists get worked up over what they believe compared to others.

i also see that you may have contradicted yourself in your story when you said that it wasnt a good thing that christians can go a whole week without talking about god, but then complained how every atheist has to talk about their disbelief in god. it appears like you are saying only christians can talk about god and atheists cant. if this is truly what you are saying then you are being a hypocrite.

personally i think its stupid to get so worked up over religion, i can never understand why its such a big deal. like i wish people could choose to be atheist or choose to be christian and not try and argue over who is right and who is wrong because the actual reality of it is that no one can ever be sure!!! everyone just needs tolerance and to stop putting pressure on one another.

honestly why cant conversations about religion just stay like "what do you believe in?" "i believe in god" "thats cool. im an atheist." "thats cool too" everything would be so much quieter!!!

and before you start thinking im an atheist, im not. i pick and choose whatever I FEEL is right and i dont force it on others and i dont put a label on myself for my beliefs.

You know what I find strange, is that you can talk about the most sickest things on Ep especially when it comes to sex and people esp men will be so understanding and wanting to friend you. But as soon as someone mentions God, people go bullistic. In not into religion, but do believe in a God, and think we should be tolerant of peoples beliefs, and not attack them....

Stop attacking me, some people don't believe in a god, some do, like I said have some respect for other peoples belief. I don't appreciate being attacked like a possessed demon so I will not engage with you. F off....

Biblical tolerance does have boundaries: We are not to excuse sin or falsehood or embrace ungodly behaviors. Tolerance is a biblical virtue, but it is different than the world's understanding of tolerance.

2 John 10-11 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.

**** off douche, you just generalized 5% of America saying they all do that when in reality very few of them do, because if they did openly profess to being atheist they would b treated as untouchable

Well put

Nice Avatar... Knights Templar marching off to the "Holy Lands" to butcher by the tens and hundreds of thousands. Wielding their swords against those that refuse to believe as they believe.

Suits you...

interesting point of view... but unsustainable. Can equally argue if crusaders all stay home world better place. if all chalk turn to cheese world is better place! if you like cheese. If christians dominate world is better place for christians only - which is very unchristian point of view!

Very true

Agreed. It is scary, but true. Christians are most often labeled as the most hateful by the press and non-Christian folk. This is because those who rebuke God hate Him. Christians throughout the world are the most oppressed group of believers around. Funny how it was atrocious for the "Christians" to attempt retaking their holy land 800 years ago... But Christians being put to death for their beliefs in Africa, China, and much of the Middle East is never mentioned in an argument with an atheist, they label it geneocide and not what it truly is religiocide.

Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot and Mao and the cold war, why is that never mentioned instead of stuff by the catholic church such as the inquisition only like 1000 or hundreds of years ago? Radical state atheism still happens in North Korea and China where people are killed for not being an atheist especially during Pol Pot and Stalin's reign, Stalin proclaimed that he was killing in the name of no religion and pol pot also. The conversations and etc such as letters revealed Hitler was actually an atheist, since its never talked about I wonder if the radical atheists are proud of it no offense.

And plus the crusades were carried out by the Catholics and not the original Christians.

Hitler was an atheist according to his private conversations and his writings and etc, search "Heroes of Atheism Adolf Hitler" on youtube for the documentary with proof. His plan was to exterminate firstly all Jews then all Christians, if you want to see what his real beliefs were look up Creativity(Religion), it's an atheistic neo-nazi movement which is COMPLETELY what Hitler's beliefs were.

And don't forget Mao and Vladimir Lenin as well.

Let's see another: soviet union league of militant atheists, soviet war in Afghanistan with most radical/militant atheists supporting the soviet union. When they learn philosophy they will understand more.

They and I mean the ones who push their belief on people should move to North Korea, it has everything such as the ones attacking Christians ever wanted.
