Why Do Atheists Get Angry at Christians for Believing, if They Don't Believe in Anything at All?
Atheism: the doctrine or belief that there is no god.
Beliefs: confidence in the truth or existence of something not immediately susceptible to rigorous proof.
|Do you believe in heaven & hell?
My opinion. My blog.
My overall opinion on these angry atheists is this: they were disappointed in God because they didn't get what they asked for. "Ask and ye shall receive."
God only gives three answers to prayer:
- Not yet.
- I have something better in mind.
I just trust in God's will.
My point is, you can easily lose faith when someone you love dies. The grief itself can just sink you into a hole of depression, anger, resentment and lack of faith. When bad things occur, we often think, "How can God let this happen?" I truly believe it's a faith tester - your ability to maintain faith and trust in God while going through turbulence. But the atheists get angry and lash out with, "You're a fool for believing in a god that would let something like this happen to you!" So then, let me be a fool. I'll at least die happy and not so angry.
