    If I were an avowed atheist...

    If I were an avowed athesist I wouldn't have the least interest in posting to this 'Spirituality Forum' and playing king of the mountain in attempting to put down believers in Christ who have bought into silly absolutes. Let the weak minded have their security blankets. Let them place their confidence in the belief that God is a person with self awareness and self determination; perfect integrity and respect for human volition; who has revealed Himself to mankind in all generations for the sole purpose of reconciliation. Hell no. I'd devote my energies to things I could get excited about. Sure wouldn't practice shooting fish in a barrel and calling it a day. Above all, I'd strive to matter in some worthwhile vocational and/or avocational endeavor. Your point of view?

    Hi, Proper Knob. Long time no see. With respect to your question, Negative. Hardly my style

    to use closets for anything other than clothing, shoes and to hide stuff I'm trying to lose.

    Agree. Some folks always succeed in confusing religion which, if distilled to its irreducible essence, amounts to man by man's efforts attempting to gain the approbation of God. They think trying to help God run the universe He created (pushing the jet as it were) will weigh something in the ultimate judgement scales. Christianity on the other hand isn't a religion. It's a personal relationship with God. He does the work and offers the grace gift of eternal salvation.

    Each of us accept it or reject it (and place our confidence in someone or something else). The choice is yours.

    False religion is on par with atheism.

    Actually false religion is worse than atheism because when young persons come to religion for guidance they become misdirected into sinful life by false religion.

    Instructing young persons to eat meat because God allows it is encouraging them into sinful life.

    At least a person who is an atheist can rise up to theism at some point.

    But persons of false religion remain fixed in their falsity because they believe they have truth.

    False religion is then worse than atheism...............leading people into sinful life and believing its not sinful.

    An atheist at least knows he is in error.

    Agreed. The question then becomes:

    Then why do you insist on touting your false religion?

    You seek to sway people from the truth.
