Default Here is WHY I think you DENY GOD!

Here is why I think you deny God. I think the freedom to believe and live the way you want, is so important to you. So much, that the thought of someone being in-charge of this whole thing and has a standard that He is going to hold you accountable to is just way too much for you to want to submit yourselves to, because It might put a wet blanket on some of the things you want to do.

But there in lies the problem between a professing atheist and God. There is a state of hostility between them, atheists do have a reason to be unreasonable, they object to the moral standards of God. They say, "God, don't tell me what to do with my life, I love my lust, my fornication, my adultery and my pornography. Its my life and I'll do what I want with it"

Therefore, they go to the extreme of denying his existence.

Am I Right?

Just because someone is an atheist does not mean they are immoral. That's an ignorant generalization.

no, atheists are just more realistic about their impulses, while religious people try and deny them but eventually succumb and look like hypocrites constantly because of that.

Rev Long is a good example. but that stuff has happened a thousand times and continues to happen every other month it seems. at least the atheist doesn't pretend to preach against all of that, so when he gets caught its not the big deal. but when some homosexual hate preaching minister gets caught being homosexual, theres just a lot more fault there.

even if God was in charge, where exactly do you see it? i can do whatever i want, God isn't going to stop me, so he's hardly in charge of anything i see from a day to day...

Yes you are seeing the signs now, It began in the ending of October....
But Going into 2011 WALL STREET WILL TAKE A NEW DIVE.
In 2011 the bubble will burst and by 2012 it will be worser than the 2008 economic downfall.
It would be so worse, it would seem impossible to recover. That is the word of the Lord.

You claiming that you are channeling the word of the lord is downright ridiculous.

Church is just way too boring, plus I like sleeping in on Sunday. If they could make it a little more exciting I might consider believing in god.

I have been brought up in a strict religious family and all that I have lerned is believing in religion or god no matter wht religion it is you believe in is just a way to give our lives that have no control, some control, the feeling that you have someone with you at alll time, watching your back and protecting you, who wouldn't want that in this crazy world.? With that being said, I don't believe in a reliogion at the moment. My grandma gives me a lecture everytime she sees me talkingabout, even if you die early or something happens, it was gods will, if you are good, you will go to heaven.... Whattt if she's wrong.? Why does she do that.? Gives her hope, something to live for, and the feeling that even if she passes of old age, she has something after to look forward to...i REALLLY don't like people trying to force any kind of religion down on me, if this god, whichever one it is, wouldn't he accept us as long as we try to be good people on this earth.? If we actually help people in need and all that stuff.? If he is god(and all powerful and stuff) he would be able to judge our hearts and intentions without having to clamor his name over and over.....end rant
