Words of Comfort: False converts/hypocrites


“It would seem that the Baptists may actually lead the Catholics in child molestation convictions."

The entire international Church is filled with false converts/hypocrites. Let's hope the law exposes pedophiles before they get to the kids. Otherwise God will sort them out on Judgment Day.

Words of Comfort: Shotgun wedding.


“According to the book of Deuteronomy, the cost of keeping an unwed virgin which I have raped is 50 silver shekels. Is that correct?" 

If you study the verses, you will see that the sex was consensual. We call it a shotgun wedding.

Words of Comfort: Slaughter of American Indians.


"It was Christians that slaughtered millions of Native American Indians."

Christians don't slaughter anybody. Sinful man does in the name of God. He always has, and he always will. Saying that Christians killed millions of Indians is about as fair as saying atheists killed 110 million through atheistic Communism. The problem isn’t atheism or religion. It’s sinful men.

Words of Comfort: Does God hate the wicked?


"Does God hate the wicked? Or does he just hate the wicked things they do?"

Scripture makes it clear that God has a judicial hatred for wicked men (Psalm 11:5). This is different than the sinful hatred you and I may have, because God is without sin.

Words of Comfort: 20 million killed in the Bible.


“Does God love all the 20,000,000 people he killed in the Bible?”

The Bible says that God takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. In the end it will be far more than a mere 20 million that God puts to death. All of us will die, because all of us have sinned.

Words of Comfort: Love or hate?


“God loves everyone, but I read in Romans 9, ‘Jacob I loved and Esau I hated.’ What do you make of that?”

Most interpret that as “hyperbole” (a justified exaggeration for contrast). However, when God “hates,” it is judicial and not sinful.

Words of Comfort: “No one is confident there is no God..."


“No one is confident there is no God. There is just no evidence that proves there is a God."

You should have said that you haven't yet found proof that God exists. Otherwise you are claiming omniscience (having all knowledge) when you say that “no one is confident there is a God,” and only God has that.

Words of Comfort: God fails in science.


"Science is about observation and testability. God fails terrible every time it comes to those standards.

Darwinian evolution is unobservable and untestable. That's why it is so faith-based. We know God exists because of Nature/creation (observation), and He is testable because He reveals Himself to all who obey Him (see John 14:21).

Words of Comfort: No yelling or screaming.


“I went to church four days ago. I liked the preacher because he didn't yell and scream and tell me I was going to hell. He smiled the whole time he talked. Why can't more of them be like that?" 

We won't yell and scream at you, but we will warn you that if you die in your sins, you will end up in Hell. You ending up in Hell doesn't seem to worry your smiley preacher though.

Words of Comfort: I have not faith.


“I have no faith. Please do not try and bring me down to that level."

So you have no one you trust. I guess you are insecure. You even sound paranoid. Paranoid people refuse to trust people or things. They live in fear. They have no faith in banks, the police, planes or elevators. Paranoid: "Exhibiting or characterized by extreme and irrational fear or distrust of others."

Words of Comfort: Virgin or young woman?


"Isaiah 7:14: ‘Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.’  Christians say that this verse is a prophecy of Jesus' birth to a virgin.  Virgin in this verse is a mistranslation of the Hebrew word almah, which actually means ‘young woman.’"  

You say that miraculous sign was that "a young woman" would give birth. How could that be a "sign" from God?  Billions of young women have given birth. The sign was that a virgin would conceive. That’s a sign.

Words of Comfort: Think.


“Pray for us and we will think for you!"

That's all we are trying to get you to do. Think. Think about your eternal salvation. Think about the genius of God’s creative hand. Think about your sins. Think about the Savior and what He did on the cross.

Words of Comfort: I follow Buddhism.


“My conscience is clear because I follow some practices of Buddhism.”

A rapist can tell the judge that his conscience is clear because, in his mind, the woman he raped asked for it by her provocative dress. A clear conscience isn't the issue. On Judgment Day forgiveness of sins is the only thing that will matter. It will be the difference between innocent or guilty, life or death, Heaven or Hell. Forgiveness of sins can only come through the cross.

Words of Comfort: Evolution and God are not incompatible.


“You can accept both evolution and God. They're not incompatible.”

God made Adam in His image. Neither God nor Adam was an ape. Jesus said, “In the beginning God made them “male and female.” He didn’t make them as primordial soup.

Words of Comfort: All-forgiving, all-loving, compassionate God and Hell.


"I don't know how anyone can tell me with a straight face that an all-forgiving, all-loving, compassionate God would condemn anyone to eternal pain and agony in the bowels of Hell for eternity just for the actions of a mere 90 years on this planet."

The Bible doesn't say that God is all-forgiving and all-loving. You are creating an "idol"--making up a false god in your mind. God is holy and just as well as loving and merciful. His love is seen in that He gave you the gift of life. His mercy is seen in allowing you to sin against Him. But if you refuse to repent and end up dying in your sins, He will give you absolute justice, and that's a fearful thing.  Damnation means forever being damned from all the pleasures He lavished upon you, for which you were so unthankful.

Words of Comfort: God will do that which is right.


“I can kill someone, but just before I die, I become reborn. But the person I killed will end up in Hell. How is that justice?

God will do that which is right. You need not concern yourself with who He saves, or who He damns. Just make sure you are right with Him yourself.

Words of Comfort: Good without God.


"I can be a good person without God.” 

Anyone of us can be good without God. All we need is a very low standard of goodness. There are 46 dictionary definitions of "good" from which to choose.  The word "good" in God's Book, however, means moral perfection, in thought, word and in deed. That's the high standard of goodness that we be will judged by on Judgment Day (whether you believe in God or not).

Words of Comfort: Joining Lincoln, Einstein, Gates, Darwin...


"I’m looking forward to joining Abraham Lincoln, Mark Twain, Charles Darwin, Bill Gates, and Albert Einstein in Hell, while you can be with Adolph Hitler. LOL. If only it was true." 

None of the above were atheists. Not even Hitler.  Hitler was a Roman Catholic, who used God for political gain. The rest were theists. Einstein didn't believe in a "personal" God, and hated it when he was called an atheist.

Words of Comfort: Science will make life.


"I'd love to see the creationists response when we do finally make some or other form of life. The day is coming.... science, you gotta love it." 

All the combined brains of our most intelligent scientists haven't a clue how to even begin to make one grain of sand from nothing, let alone create the utter complexity of even one cell of organic life. It is comparatively simple to recreate, using God's existing materials, but we can't make simplest thing from nothing. Such utter human powerlessness reveals the intellectual embarrassment of atheism.

Words of Comfort: God offends me...



"God is evil, so I don't really care if I offend Him. He offends me."

As an atheist are you saying that He's real? Check out Romans 8:7 for why He is offensive to you. [1]  It will show you your core motive.


Note: [1] “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be” (Romans 8:7).

Words of Comfort: Why I should get down on my knees?


"Please explain why I should get down on my knees and start pleasing an immoral, judgmental, childish, inferior, insecure, genocidal maniac God!"  

Because you are the one who is immoral, judgmental, childish, inferior, insecure, self-righteous, blasphemous and godless--with the ultimate delusion of grandeur in thinking that you can stand in moral judgment over Almighty God. You need to look closely at your own sins in the light of the Ten Commandments.

Words of Comfort: Jesus didn't listen to Himself.


"Jesus asked Himself if this cup could pass him by. He didn’t listen to Himself."

When the Creator and Upholder of the Universe made a human body and filled that body as a hand fills a glove (Jesus was "the express image of the invisible God"[1]) He didn't cease to be the omnipotent Creator and Upholder of all things. Jesus was fully Man and fully God, but in the incarnation He was limited to time, space, hunger, thirst, all so that He could suffer the pain of death[2], to save us from Eternal Justice.
