    Neither do the Theists, it’s just that we KNOW it!

    What’s worse expecting something that isn’t there to “Save You”,
    Or never expecting to be “Saved” in the first place?

    Self-responsibility IS a heavy load,
    but it’s the price of maturity.

    @Leo Autodidact

    There is a huge difference between a theist and a Christian. By the way, I am a Christian and I am very much a proponent of self-responsibility. I am responsible enough to know that one look at the world demonstrates it took a being much greater than I to create it. I am also responsible enough to realize that the number of historical documents attesting to Jesus Christ far outnumber those attesting to Julius Ceasar and many other figures of history. I have weighed the evidence and am responsible enough for my self to realize the truth. Perhaps you should read Lee Strobel’s “The Case For Christ”. He began his research of Jesus as a non-believer and approached his task of disproving Jesus to be the Savior as an investigative journalist and attorney (he has worked in both fields). He was also self responsible enough to realize the evidence disproved his original belief. The truth will set you free.

    Your truth or my truth? Humans created gods to control other humans. That pattern is repeated throughout history.

    On a side note, when a sports player thanks god for winning a game does same sports player condemn god when they lose a game?

    I, too, am a Christian, and would pose this question to non-believers: I go through my life believing in God and trying to do His will…if, at the end of life, there is nothing…what have I lost? Nothing. On the other hand, if you go through life not believing, and at the end of life there is a Heaven and Hell…look what you have to lose. If I err, I’m going to do it on the side of caution…I don’t like climates where asbestos suits won’t help.

    I think there is nothing wrong with the message offered in the Ten Commandments or in love your neighbor as you love yourself, or do unto others as you would have other do to you.

    In short, I believe because the overall message is a good one. You may argue with the genesis, but it is hard to argue with the fact that it would be a better world if everyone followed these simple messages. Believe It!

    That’s called Pascal’s Wager. Created by an unbeliever and part-time cynic, Blaise Pascal. It’s considered a coward’s way out by anyone with convictions and courage including Pascal.

    There is only one truth. You keep telling yourself there is no God, but the evidence is incontrovertible. If you walked outside and saw five leaves lined up on your doorstep, you would ask, “Who lined these leaves up in a row?” To believe this world and humans were created by happenstance takes more faith than it does to believe in God. As for your second question, what does it matter? You are just trying to avoid the hard truth, i.e., God exists, He loves you and provided a way for you to be with Him in eternity. You can believe it or not, but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s true.

    An additional comment, if I may. Christians athletes (and several professional sports players are congregants of my church) have noted that they do not pray to God to win the game, nor do they pray God will cause the other team to lose. Such a prayer would be selfish and the antithesis of what followers of Jesus believe. As C.S. Lewis noted, “Simply to say prayers is not to pray; otherwise a team of properly trained parrots would serve as well as men for our experiment”. Prayer is our commune with God, not an opportunity to ask some magician to grant our whims. We call on Him to work out His purpose. Christian athletes do pray that God will allow them to use the talents and abilities He gave them in such a way that will bring honor to Him and that no one will be seriously/permanently hurt. Christian athletes let others know that it is only because of God’s grace, favor and goodness that they are playing in that game. Doing so is one of the ways for athletes to bring God glory due Him.

    Questions such as the one you pose are nonsensical and are designed only to move the conversation from the subject of God’s existence and plan for man. There is a huge difference between religion and Christianity. Religion is all about what man does to try to reach God (through rituals, following a list of rules, etc.). Christianity is what God did to reach man. It is not by works that we are saved, but by grace through faith; and not of ourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

    I hope my comments brought some clarity to the issue. It’s my way of honoring God.

    No, I believe…I was only posing a question for those who don’t.
