An Atheist's View on Life (and its opposite)


These 20 phrases describe the typical worldview of an atheist:

(1) I will live my life according to these beliefs
(2) God does not exist
(3) It is just foolish to think
(4) That there is a God with a cosmic plan
(5) That an all-powerful God brings purpose to the pain and suffering in the world
(6) Is a comforting thought; however,
(7) Is only wishful thinking
(8) People can do as they please without eternal consequences
(9) The idea that
(10) I am deserving of Hell
(11) Because of sin
(12) Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power
(13) “The more you have, the happier you will be”;
(14) Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose
(15) In a world with no God
(16) There is freedom to be who I want to be
(17) But with God
(18) Everything is fine
(19) It is ridiculous to think
(20) I am lost and in need of saving

However, the atheist has it exactly upside down.  Read these same 20 phrases in reverse order:

(20) I am lost and in need of saving
(19) It is ridiculous to think
(18) Everything is fine
(17) But with God
(16) There is freedom to be who I want to be
(15) In a world with no God
(14) Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose
(13) “The more you have, the happier you will be”;
(12) Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power
(11) Because of sin
(10) I am deserving of Hell
(9) The idea that
(8) People can do as they please without eternal consequences
(7) Is only wishful thinking
(6) Is a comforting thought; however,
(5) That an all-powerful God brings purpose to the pain and suffering in the world
(4) That there is a God with a cosmic plan
(3) It is just foolish to think
(2) God does not exist
(1) I will live my life according to these beliefs

The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." (Psalm 14:1)
