Atheists live sad lives. The key to being Atheist is to live a shallow life as thinking deep hurts. If you think of meaning in life where only material exists, you end up finding that all is meaningless. If your thinking comes from a random collection of atoms, then your thinking is meaningless. Death is just an end. Faith gives meaning, but why?
Did you know that committed Christians and conservative Muslims both are known for having lots of children? Why do people of faith have more children? People of faith have more hope and more meaning in their lfe, so they have children. Children are a future thinking decision.
Being nice has no meaning if we are just a random selection of atoms that will be driven by entropy to a formless dust. First we are dust in earth and finally in infinite space. It all adds up to nothing. Having children and spending your time and money on them is completely meaningless if we all are just dust in the wind. Faith is a life giving gift of God.
Christians believe that our mortal body is just a temporary vessel, but that our souls are eternal and will find a better place than earth. We know that even our hardships are helping us get better for eternity and will help our children get there as well. Sharing the good news with others has eternal significance and so does beating a few eggs.
So good and bad all find meaning in a world made by our God of love.
Faith Gives Meaning, Let’s Feel for Atheists
I think we need to be more kind and understanding of Atheists. They live sad lives filled with trying not to think how meaningless their philosophy is. They work hard to assuage their hearts and are upset when we are smug or angry rather than caring. In the mean time show them love as the hallmark of our Kingdom.
Thank you God for giving us meaning and purpose where we can spread love from love that we first got from you.
