The atheist and Christian view of life

December 23rd, 2013

I came across this today which I thought was very clever. It contrasts the Atheists view and the Christian view of life. One you read from the top down, the other you read from the top up.

The Atheist View of Life

I will live my life according to these beliefs

God does not exist

It’s just foolish to think

That there is an all knowing God with a cosmic plan

That an all powerful God brings purpose to the pain and suffering in the world

Is a comforting thought however


Is only wishful thinking

People can do as they please without eternal consequences

The idea that

I am deserving of hell

Because of sin

Is a lie meant to make me a slave to those in power

“The more you have, the happier you will be”

Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose

In a world with no God

There is freedom to be who I want to be

But with God

Life is an endless cycle of guilt and shame

Without God

Everything is fine

It is ridiculous to think

I am lost and in need of saving

(Now, read the lines from the bottom up for the Christian view of life)
