For what is the hope of the godless when he is cut off, When God requires his life? Job 27:8
Heres a great question to ponder that Job stated, what Hope do the Godless people have when they die? The irony of this is when Christians raise their children on the Bible, Atheist will call this “child abuse”. How can we teach our childrens such things are they were handpicked and created by God, that Jesus loved them enough to die for their sins, and if they put their faith in Jesus they can inherit eternal life.
I know all these things are horrible to teach children (sarcasm) however lets take a look at an Atheist point of view that they would teach their children.
- Since the world unknowingly and randomly created itself that we are just an accident
- Since you’re an accident there is no real purpose for your life
- We evolved from apes or fish, nobody is really clear
- When we die we all cease to exist, never to be heard from again
So this is truly what an Atheist would have to teach their children if there being honest with their worldview. We could also throw in since there is no God, there is no morality, there also is no hope of anyone saving you
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 1 Peter 1:3
Because of Jesus Christ we as Christians have eternal hope. Jesus is our Living Hope because he has overcome the grave. God knew us before he formed us in the womb (Jeremiah 1:5) , God does have a purpose for your life (Jeremiah 29:11) We were made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) and God has an eternal Kingdom waiting for us (John 14, Revelation 21)
I rather teach my children to true promises from God rather than the lies of this world Amen!
