"Lettter from an Atheist"
“You are really convinced that you’ve got all the answers. You’ve tricked yourself into believing that you’re 100% right. Well let me tell you just one thing. Do you consider yourself to be compassionate of other human beings? If you’re right sbout GOD, as you say you are, and you believe that, then how can you sleep at night? When you speak with me, you are speaking with someone who you believe is walking directly into eternal damnation, into an endless onslaught of horrendous pain which your ‘loving’ GOD created, yet you stand by and do nothing.
“If you believed one bit that thousands every day were falling into an eternal and unchangeable fate, you should be running the streets mad with rage at their blindness. That’s equivalent to standing on a street corner and watching ebvery person that passes by you walk blindly into the path of a bus and die, yet you stand idly by and do nothing. You’re just twiddling your thumbs, happy with the knowledge that one day that “Walk” signal will shine your way across the road.
“Think about it. Imagine the horrors hell must have in store if the Bible is true. You’re just going to allow that to happen and not care about saving anyone but yourself? If you’re right, then you’re an uncaring, unemotional, and purely selfish (expletive deleted) that has no right to talk about subjects as love and caring.”

Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy” (Ps.107:2). “I believed, therefore I spoke” (2Cor. 4:13). “For we cannot but speak the things which we have both seen and heard” (Acts 4:20)
The rich man in Hell of whom CHRIST spoke (Lk.16:19-31) is still crying for a drop of water to cool his tongue, and still earnestly desires someone to testify to his “5 brethren.. .lest they also come into this place of torment” (v.28). When souls repent and turn to CHRIST for salvation they glorify GOD (Rv.16:9).
What shall we (who have received "so great salvation") render unto the LORD for all His benefits toward us? May we surrender once for all and daily to CHRIST and walk in the Spirit in obedience to His word, to the glory of GOD. "Love not the world neither the things in the world" (1John 2:15), but speaking the truth in love reach those in the world for Christ, who gave Himself for our sins.
It is He Who was sent by the Father to be the Savior of the world to all who will receive Him. It is He Who died for all and rose from the dead as present SAVIOR and future JUDGE.
What a soul does with the Lord JESUS CHRIST will determine where and with whom they spend eternity - rejoicing in HEAVEN with JESUS, or suffering with the devil in HELL!
"Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is none other name given among men under Heaven, whereby we MUST BE SAVED" (Acts 4:12).
If you are not saved, give your sins and your life now unto Him who died for you and rose again, and you will be born again. Go to a Bible - believing,preaching church and be baptized in identification with the Lord, and so walk in newness of life - amidst persecutions.
Preaching peace through the Lord JESUS, daniel
