A letter from an atheist:
“You are really convinced that you’ve got all the answers. You’ve really got yourself tricked into believing that you’re 100% right. Well, let me tell you just one thing. Do you consider yourself to be compassionate of other humans? If you’re right about God, as you say you are, and you believe that, then how can you sleep at night? When you speak with me, you are speaking with someone who you believe is walking directly into eternal damnation, into an endless onslaught of horrendous pain which your loving god created, yet you stand by and do nothing.
If you believed one bit that thousands every day were falling into an eternal and unchangeable fate, you should be running the streets mad with rage at their blindness. That’s equivalent to standing on a street corner and watching every person that passes you walk blindly directly into the path of a bus and die, yet you stand idly by and do nothing. You’re just twiddling your thumbs, happy in the knowledge that one day that Walk signal will shine your way across the road.
Think about it. Imagine the horrors hell must have in store if the Bible is true. You’re just going to allow that to happen and not care about saving anyone but yourself? If you’re right, then you are an uncaring, unemotional and purely selfish (expletive) that has no right to talk about subjects such as live and caring.”
If this letter does not convict your soul and move you to repentance I don’t know what will. Are we doing all that we can each day to save the millions of lost souls around us from slipping into the fires of hell? Paul says in (Corinthians 5: 10, 11) that because they understood the terrors that awaited the lost on Judgment Day they lived their lives persuading men, obviously to turn from their sins to the One and only Savior Jesus Christ! This should be the number one focus of ever person that names the name of Christ and is called a believer. We must do all we can!
Love, your brother in Christ, Jonathan Ball
