John 8:47-"He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God."
John 3:18-"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
John 8:44-"You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies."
Matthew 13:38-"The field is the world, and the good seed stands for the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one,
John 3:16-"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
2 Corinthians 4:3-4-"And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."
It is very simple unbelievers do not belong to GOD. I know it sucks really really bad but this is the reality of truth. Now atheist you understand why it is impossible for you to believe, it is because you are already condemned. You are blinded by your father. You are not of GOD but of the devil, and the devil along with his seed shall perish forever according to the word of GOD Almighty.
P.S. “I would rather live my life as if there is a god and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is.” Albert Camus
I reference the sky god all of the time. Usually it's in the form of "god d.amnit" or a variation of that. His son comes up ALL of the time. Usually if I'm slightly angry or annoyed at something. "Jesus!!!" Now THAT one has a lot of variations depending on my level of annoyance. Sometimes I use his full name, and sometimes I use his less-known middle name of "mother focking". Sometimes I swear to god if I am trying to make a point. None of those phrases have any direct bearing on the diety they reference, they are just commonplace colloquialisms. Remenants of language fragments. Do you know what Thursday is a refernce to? What about Saturday? Oh no! Pagan gods!! One day, your diety will be just as irrelevant as Saturn and Thor, and we will all be a little bit smarter for it. Unless it's replaced by magic underwear or Xenu.
