You just keep telling me to do what Jesus said.
I've done that, and nothing. So if that's all the evidence you have I'm afraid I find it lacking.
Jesus is the one who said that.
Joh 14:23 WEB
Jesus answered him, “If a man loves me, he will keep my word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.
The question I then have is-
What, exactly, do you think Jesus said to do?
And as far as lacking goes, what do you think is going to happen?
Being married to my wife for the past 32 years now hasn't been some dramatically explosive experience. But in like manner, it has been quite clear.
Your continuing to use the terms you're using, without having description of what you mean just raises more questions.
What do the rocks and earth, plants and animals prove?
Haven't you ever seen the "Made by God" engraved on everything?
Do you not understand how evolution works?
Apparently the atheists here have a different definition than the ones taught in educational institutions.
Maybe you should read up on it before asking asinine questions.
Perhaps you can provide the ones that you have sanctioned, then I can determine if they agree with the ones I learned in the educational institutions I learned from.
Yes humans experience death. And the Bible says humans experience death. So?
People are bothered by death because they like being alive.
If death is normal, then why would life be so important?
Why are Christians bothered by it if they get to go to heaven?
Because Jesus said that he doesn't want anyone to perish.
Because we are a social species. We depend on each other for survival so behaviours that promote that are seen as desirable.
Why are we social?
Evolution is utilitarian, not social.
None of these things show that there is something wrong with mankind.
Tell that to yourself the next time a major catastrophe kills.
All of these things are what would be expected if there were no God.
These things wouldn't matter if there was no God. They wouldn't matter at all.
Nobody would give a single thought to them.
What the Bible claims does not comport with my experience of reality.
Then why are you here?
Why aren't you out there living your life?
After all, you'll be dead in a few years, you may even get hit by a car crossing the street today. You may have a congenital defect, and drop dead. After all, there're lots of people who die without any warning.
I read on Sunday that Anne Heche died from injuries sustained in her accident a couple weeks ago.
Young, beautiful, in the prime of life.
Seems like if you actually don't want to know the truth, and have no interest whatsoever in meeting your creator, you're spending your life on the wrong side of it.
Your unbelief only excludes you from learning the truth. It's not proof or evidence that YHVH is not real and knowable.
Joh 3:16-21 WEB
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only born Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God didn’t send his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world should be saved through him. 18 He who believes in him is not judged. He who doesn’t believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only born Son of God. 19 This is the judgment, that the light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the light, for their works were evil. 20 For everyone who does evil hates the light and doesn’t come to the light, lest his works would be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his works may be revealed, that they have been done in God.”
