How to Become an Atheist

The I. Section of this post is from Ray Comfort's blog - How to Become an Atheist


I. Section - Two Hard rules

There are two main hard and fast rules for anyone who would like to become an "atheist." If you are tempted, beware. It's not an easy thing to do.

The first rule is to ignore design in nature. You will see it everywhere; from the planets, to the atoms, to the birds and the bees, to the seasons, to the design of the human body, the design of fish, flowers, fruits, feet, and even fungus. And of course, the amazing-looking human eye. Everywhere you look and everywhere you can't look, you will see design.

Now here's the hard part. Ignore your God-given common sense. Admit that everything man made is man-made, but be uncompromisingly adamant that everything in nature came from nothing, with no Designer. Once you have set aside your acumen to do this, crown yourself as being intelligent. Very. Then find other atheists and they will confirm to you that you are indeed, intelligent.

The second rule is to "believe." This is very important, because if you let doubt in, it will let you in fear, and that can be a scary thing when the issue at stake is a place called "Hell."

Believe that you are right in your beliefs. Believe that evolution is indeed true. Believe that it's scientific. Believe that there are no missing links, and believe that Richard Dawkins knows what he is talking about.

Believe that you are an ape, that you are not morally responsible because apes have no moral absolutes. Believe that your conscience was given to you by your parents and society, and not by God (always use a small "g" for God, if possible).

To grow as an atheist, you will need to learn believers' language--phrases like "There is no creation," "Evolution is a proven fact," and the powerful "Flying Spaghetti Monster." Learn the fine art of cutting and pasting, and responding with "Straw man!" That means you won't have to respond to anything challenging.

All this will give perceived intelligence. Never question evolution, and don't think for yourself.

Do these things, and you will be able to call yourself an atheist, or even a "new" atheist. How cool is that! Well, I should say, as much of one as you can be called one. No one can be a true atheist because you need "absolute knowledge" to say that there is no God. So until you are omniscient (like God), you will just have to do with pretending to be one.


I I. Section - What shall I do to be saved? (Acts 2:37, 16:30)

Reading Ray Comfort's post "How to Become an Atheist", I don't think I'm an Atheist anymore, so I would like to know what shall I do to be saved?

My friend, you can’t earn eternal life. It is God’s gift to all who humble themselves and come to Jesus. "Turn to God in repentance and have faith in the Lord Jesus and He will forgive your sins and give you a new heart". Act 20:21.

But, how can I come to Jesus?

Would you like to pray … and tell God that you understand now that because you are a sinner and broke God’s law, you can’t earn eternal life, but you repent from all your sins and put your faith only in Jesus?

If this is your desire and you want to pray right now, please do with me this prayer: 

Yes i do.

"Heavenly Father, I don't want to be anymore an atheist and I want to put my trust in Jesus today. Please, have mercy on me, a sinner. I believe in you and that your word is true. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God and that he died on the cross so that I may now have forgiveness for my sins and eternal life. I know that without you in my heart my life is meaningless.

I believe in my heart that you, Lord God, raised Him from the dead. Please Jesus forgive me, for every sin I have ever committed or done in my heart, please Lord Jesus forgive me and come into my heart as my personal Lord and Savior today. I need you to be my Savior and my Father.

I give you my life and ask you to take full control from this moment on; I pray this in the name of Jesus Christ."

Amen.

I you want to know more about salvation, you can read the post below Mr Good Person written by Ray Comfort. (I wrote the conclusion).

Mr Good Person
