The One Thing An Atheist Can't Do.

The atheist can do whatever she likes, except one thing. Whether sex or chastity, love or cruelty, truth or lies, all is permissible to the atheist, save this single act. The one thing an atheist cannot do is have faith. For the atheist who dabbles in faith is no atheist at all.

Isn't it ironic that faith alone in Christ is the one thing she must do to be saved. Modern atheism is not a lack of faith, as is so often claimed, but instead a carefully crafted inoculation against Christianity. In any other religion, acts of goodness can secure eternity. However, in Christianity alone do works of goodness do nothing to gain everlasting life. Faith in Christ alone is the only way, which is a path denied to the atheist. Atheism is specifically designed to bar the door of Heaven and is a custom-made response to "faith-alone" Christianity.

To deny a person their right to have faith, is the single most cruel act ever perpetrated on humanity. The seminal brilliance of this insidious ideology is not in it's denial of God's existence, for which there is no proof, but in it's removal of the single tool man has to be reconciled with God. To deny a person their faith, is to deny them their immortality.

  2. Nice strawman argument. As a ex-Christian of over 30 years, this argument is an embarrassment to anyone with the capacity for rational thought.

    1. And for what reason is this embarrassing? Due to the fact it's somewhat true?

  3. Sorry, but I'm not impressed. I see no reason to see why faith is a good thing. I, too, would hold on to my faith any time I came across an argument that challenged the validity of Christianity, but as soon as I opened my mind and applied a bit of skepticism, the whole thing fell apart almost immediately. Faith allows you to see past the inconsistencies, the atrocities, and the outright falsehoods in Christianity in order to hold on to a comfortable lie. I don't see it as a virtue; I see it as a crutch

    1. I would be interested to hear you expand. There are many atrocities and falsehoods committed in the name of Christ. But Christ didn't call for any of those. Which are you referring to?

    2. What is life like without faith in God and an afterlife? I've never NOT believed in God so I have no clue and am genuinely curious. I can say that I lived most of my life without knowing Jesus. Now that I know Jesus I have hope to add to my faith which has been an amazing experience. Do you fear death or is it a comfort to you as if you will just sleep for eternity? My questions are sincere and not meant to be antagonistic so please don't attack my choice to believe. I really want to know more about what other people believe and what life is like from a perspective that I will never know first hand. Thank you!

    3. @Anonymous: life without belief in things there is no evidence for is a lot like the life you live now, except that you actively care about peopleand conditions in this life (since ittis the only one you are sure to get) and you generally try to make life better here and now. Instead of spendingyour time and energy on religious activities (which, at best, have no effect on the world and at worst make the world a worse place to live), you are free to focus your efforts on improving yourself and your community.

  4. To Anonymous, Christianity is NOT a crutch. It's a stretcher, because without Christ you cannot even limp your way into Heaven.

    1. in the atheist world view with Christ (who is dubious at best) you cant even be carried into haven due to its most likely non Existence.

  5. For actual atheists, life is simple. Don't waste it worrying about the impossible, like 'gods' and 'heavens'. This says it best:

    1. If someone were not worrying about the existence of God, why would he be on this site advising others to not waste life worrying about the impossible? You contradict yourself.

  6. Do you know what faith is?

    Faith: noun. The condition of believinh a claim for which there is no evidence or for which all evidence indicates the claim is false.

    Please explain how this is in any way a desirable trait.

    1. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    2. That's a heavily disputed modern redefinition of the word. That redefinition matches a now common Western world view, not the meaning the word carries in Bible translations and Christian literature. Faith in its original meaning simply refers to believing, that is to find something or someone worthy of trust, in the case of Christianity, God.

    3. Faith, hope, trust,and love are all qualities to build a strong relationship. It is all unexplainable, it just has to be experienced. A gut feeling, where maybe your life was miraculously saved, from a car wreck, that statistically, or scientificly should have ended in death. But, all of the sudden you're filled with hope, purpose, and certainty that there is a God, Someone, bigger, stronger, and no way to explain it.
