What’s the difference between a Christian and an Atheist (or any religion that doesn’t believe in God)?
We’ve accepted that we are here because God wants us to be and that doesn’t need an explanation. Whatever his reasoning may be, we trust Him and know He has the best plan for us, and we are happy to live, feel and worship Him, and let Him guide us.
An Atheist is just not there yet, or might never be. They feel the need to question everything, and continue to do so. They embrace their rebellious nature. And if they’re not questioning, they’ve been hurt in the past and want to deny there’s a God because they can’t understand His ways. (Which is not really being an Atheist, they just would rather put themselves in a category to “offend” God which still shows they acknowledge Him.)
On Sunday my pastor said something that made me giggle, he said,
“so what’s going to happen when an Atheist sees that same God they spent their lives denying?” 😬😬lol
This bible verse really wraps it up for me. Helps me through almost anything!
My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. –Isaiah 55:8
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. — John 3:18
* not meant to start up any arguments, this was a realization I had yesterday.
