Well for your question. I was never really religoius I have only gone ti cheney a few times. I really loved science so I began comparing it to god and religion and that's why I became an atheist.

Great, I love questions!

1- Another complicated one, and I can't know the answer, and frankly probably risky for me to speculate. But first off, in Romans 9:15 God says "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion." As far as I can tell, no one is off the table for God's compassion, maybe even after death.

But, I really believe some sort of "hell" exists (or will exist, but let's not get technical here), and I think that, sadly, some people will probably choose to go there rather than stay in God's presence. I don't really have time, atm, to go into all the different theologies of hell, but you can send me a message if you really want to talk about it.

2 Why do you choose to be an atheist? What philosophies, books, or teachers do you follow to guide your life, if any? What is your opinion of Christians, and how do we compare to other religious folks?

Comment by Tavonya Edwards yesterday

I have two more questions.

1- Am I going to "hell"?
2- Do you have any questions about atheistism?

Comment by Matt C on Friday

1. I think it's pretty complicated. I'm something of a traditionalist, so I'm inclined to think homosexual acts are sinful. I think the biblical arguments have some weight and the theological ones too. I don't know if really means I should oppose gay marriage on a legal basis though. Divorce is explicitly called a sin in the bible, and I'm not protesting about that. So I guess I'm figuring it out.


2. Nothing "made" me believe in God. I've had doubts, and I still have doubts. I think intellectually, the arguments for and against the existence of God are about 50/50. Personally, I feel like I do experience God's love and guidance. At the end of the day, I choose to be faithful.


3. atheism is bad. Atheists, on the other hand, are just people like anybody else. Some are nice; they love life and just want to live it well. Others aren't nice; they hate God whether or not he exists, and seem pretty sad.


4. I don't know how to answer this one. Like I said, I have doubts, but I feel called to remain faithful. For me belief is a character/virtue thing, rather than whatever ideas might be in my head at the moment.

The homosexuality thing?

Esv
1 Corinthians 6:9
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality.

1 Timothy 1:8-11
Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully, 9 understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, 10 the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers,[a] liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound[b] doctrine, 11 in accordance with the gospel of the glory of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted.

What verse or verses in the New Testament talk about this?
Comment by Hannah Anders on Friday
1. (By the way, there is another discussion about this if your interested) the bible says in places in both the old and New Testament that practicing homosexuality is a sin. Obviously, by that rule, marriage would be a sin as well. Please understand though, only the action is a sin. Everyone experiences different temptations. Gay people are no more guilty of sin than I am or anyone else. We all need the same amount of Jesus' grace to be redeemed. I know that it seems like Christians hate gay people, and sure, a few really do, but I think a lot of Christians are just scared. Many of us believe that it's wrong, but gay culture is constantly pushed in our faces by the media in every possible way. And that kinda freaks a lot of Christians out because we can't get away from it.

2. I grew up in a very religious home. From the moment I was born I was told that I was loved wholly and was always accepted by god. I know some people might say that's oppressive or something since I wasn't capable of making my own religious decisions, but I wouldn't trade that childhood for anything. So I've always felt the presence of god in my life. But when I experienced a really traumatic change in my life, the trust I had in god was literally the only thing that kept me going. During that time, I felt his presence helping me through a really heartbreaking time, and I've never felt more sure of anything than gods existence.

3. I live in the south where there are not many atheists, so I don't know any atheists personally. I get that not everyone wants to believe in a god they can't see. But where does your hope come from? How do you find a purpose? Is it really better to put your faith in nothing rather than to find purpose and love and joy in something in something just because you can't understand it on a physical level? (I'm just wondering aloud on these, no one has to answer them)

4. There is absolutely nothing that would cause me to leave my faith in god.
Comment by Jules on Friday
1. I personally believe in gay marriage.
2. I was going through a hard time and nobody could help me. Then I heard a voice in my head telling me that it was alright. I didn't really know who/what it was but I want to believe that it was God.
3. I feel that Atheism is okay, but I dislike how some post on Facebook about howthere should be no Catholic school and how praying in school is teaching us things that we shouldnt know. (I've seen some people put that up there) but I have met some amazing atheist s and if they don't do that then I'm okay with it...
4. What would make me stop believing? Nothing.
