Atheists.
 
What makes you not believe in God?

-You can't see him?

-Because of all the suffering in the world?

-Because of science?


WHAT?

1. I'm not atheist

2. It's not that i DONT believe in God, it's that i don't CARE if God exists or not. I live my life the way i know I'm supposed to live my life, by helping others when they need it and doing what i can to make the world a better place. No I don't do it because i'll be rewarded with a better afterlife, i do it because it's the right thing to do. If that makes me evil in your eyes then i guess I'm evil and going to hell, but in my opinion I'm a much better person for doing good for the benefit of others as opposed you doing good for your own eternal benefit. I don't need God's motivation to be good.

But yeah you're weird...

What's the point of doing that if you don't believe in a higher purpose to life?

But there is no eternal reward..... in other words its a waste of time.

No it's not a waste of time because I'm helping somebody. See that's what separates you from me. Somebody asks you why you do good and you say "so i can go to heaven". Somebody asks me why i do good and i say "because it was the right thing to do". I'm not seeking any gratification. I'm doing it because I'm a good person. The fact that you call helping someone just for the sake of helping them a waste of time shows that you are the very thing christianity is supposed to go against. You're greedy because you're only in it for your own benefit.

Again, what is the purpose of life without eternal judgement for it?

No, my situation is more complicated. And its not about you, and what you do, we were not created for ourselves. I'm sorry but its the truth.

Its your inner selfishness and pride that blinds you. I can see that.

Stop watching TV. The spirit world is more real than this world. How do you explain creation?
