Easter

Today is the day we Christians celebrate The Resurrection of the Savior, Jesus Christ. His resurrection gives us hope of life after death. Many think we are wrong; this life is all there is.

I see it this way: If I'm wrong, when I die, I lose nothing. I won't even know. If they are wrong, well...eternity is a long time.

This is why I have never understood atheists' need to convince religious people that they're wrong.

Because Atheism is a religion unto itself. They are compelled by it.

The biggest problem with the "if I'm wrong, I lose nothing" argument is when Christian millenialists (like James Watt) promote policies that are damaging over the long term, because they believe that the End Times are coming soon anyway. I also don't care to have people whose faith I do not share impose social policies based on their religious beliefs (like prohibition). Happy Easter.

But Jill, aren't the secularists and atheists pushing their social agenda (Gay Marriage, for example) on people who believe differently? And don't kid yourself, atheism and secularism (not sure if there is a difference) are as much religions as Christianity.

God gives us more than enough examples, gifts, and graces to be assured of his existence. But "proof" is not what it's about.

We must stand with God in the face of everything - policies, pressures, earthly "laws", etc. There is no salvation or guarantees on earth. Binding to God is the only true survival.
