Bringing together non-believers …
It’s hard out here for an atheist. The comforts of penitence trampled on by accountability. The common misconception is that atheists have no higher form to answer to for their “sins”. The truth is that we have no one to save us. This means we are the sole controllers of our destiny. We HAVE to make decisions and live with them. We cannot blame the outcome on the devil or other nefarious characters. We are accountable. On the flipside, we get all the glory! Sounds fair to me.
It’s hard for Christians, too. They have to ascertain God’s path. They have to decide if an obstacle to a goal was put there as a sign from God that they are going the wrong way, or a challenge from the devil because they are going the right way. They have to sift through every thought and idea to determine which are from the forces of good and the forces of evil. They have to read the bible, decide which parts to abide by and which to discard (after all no one wants to stone a woman anymore…it contradicts the ten commandments..that’s what we call a catch 22). The flipside for them, is that when things go right they give all the glory to God with no benefit until their dead.
That back and forth between what is ordained by God and what is the devil’s work is the most stressful battle in the mind that subsequently led to my fall from grace. Peace!
Note: I had to upload this twice. Not sure if that was God stopping me from doing something against his word, or the devil trying to prevent me from speaking the truth. The saga continues….
