message to atheists:
I hope you don't take this as an insult, but atheism is literally the MOST foolish thing you can do.
Why? Because you are risking ETERNAL damnation, based upon some ridiculous abstract argument you thought up yourself.
Or even more ridiculous, some abstract argument you heard in college. (Yeah, not even your own original argument!)
Guess what? Eternal damnation is the worst thing that can happen to you, bar none. I'm not trying to frighten you here, I'm just stating facts.
If (and only if) eternal damnation is true, (and that is the BIG IF) ....
then nothing else matters.
You simply HAVE to avoid eternal damnation, if it is even a REMOTE possibility. Period.
I remember in philosophy class in college, they tried to brainwash us into becoming atheists for the first month of class.
And they threw up a straw-man version of Pascal's wager. And they said that Pascal's wager fails, because it fails to take into account the myriads of different tiny, dead, or extinct religions.
That is like saying we should let the Communist party rule America because they took less than 1 percent of the vote.
The fact is, it is RATIONAL to believe in one of the GIANT LIVING religions of the world. It is desperately IRRATIONAL to believe in any of the ridiculous tiny, dead, or extinct religions.
Why? Because God would assist the true religion to prosper. It's just rational to believe that He would do so. It is also simply pragmatic and practical to believe that he would.
Only the 5 major living world religions are seriously worth studying. And Christianity wins on every level-headed measure. (I can't go into details here, would take too long).
Sorry atheists, I'm trying to do you a favor here, by saving you from what might literally be the worst thing EVER.
I know you are going to get all angry at me, and offended, and so forth. But I mean well. I really do. I feel sorry for you. (I know, you are going to get even more offended, but I'm just being brutally honest here).
May God bless you. He certainly loves you, that much we know.
