Words of Comfort: Who's wrong?

“Different churches hold different views, individual Christians can hold very diverse views too. And all claim that theirs is the right interpretation of the Word of God and everyone else is wrong. It’s the same with most other religions, factions develop according to individual belief and who is to say who is wrong and right?” Steve MacAulay

Each of us have our own perspective on politics, sports, music, foods, fashions and on religion. Who is to say which one of these things is right? We are individuals with differing opinions and thoughts about almost every issue. You are strong in yours, and you feel as you do because you belong to the atheist faction when it comes to the issue of God and His existence. You think that you are right, and that is your right as an individual.  But that fact doesn't negate that you are a criminal in the eyes of a holy Creator, and you desperately need a Savior. I say “desperately” because the Bible says that your ignorance is willful. It is natural and normal for human beings to search for excuses to hold onto our sins, because we love them.  But on Judgment Day no one will have any justification for being found guilty. You asked who is to say who is right and who is wrong. God gives the answer in the Bible, and as an atheist, as long as you deny both God and the Scriptures you will remain ignorant of the truth. I’m sure from your perspective, you will think that I’m wrong.
