To those that hate God...
To those that hate God and everything else that goes with it.
While surfing the web, it is very clear that the number of “God-haters” are growing.
I want to strengthen your case.
I don’t know which is worse – an ignorant believer or an ignorant atheist.
What I want to submit to you, I hope, will bring joy to the believer and more ammunition for the atheist.
Please note, that when CAPS is used, it is not meant for shouting – but for important consideration.

Please consider this letter carefully, and don’t be quick to disregard.
In the beginning God created everything, and nothing was created that he did not create.
God created everything GOOD. He placed man in Eden, where there was NO DEATH. The roses did not had thorns, working was effortlessly and a joy. There was no sickness, no cancer, and no pain. In fact, Adam did not even know what the word “dark” (night) meant. He did not even knew the word “pain”, and if you would have asked him what “corruption” was, he probably would have answered “Corruption? I don’t know what that even mean!” Because Adam just knew GOD’s GOODNESS and his GLORY. That was ALL he knew.
Even of satan (lucifer) it is written:
Thus says the Lord GOD: "You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone was your covering … and crafted in gold were your settings and your engravings. On the day that you were created they were prepared. You were an anointed guardian cherub. I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created …”
As God is love, He created everything for that purpose. Also he made man to love – and the only way to do that was to give him FREE WILL. By programming a robot to love you, just is not the same as a person doing so out of FREE WILL.
Sin SEPERATED man from God. God treated sin like we would like to treat cancer. God did not allow this SIN-CANCER to infect Paradise. There are some Christians that THINK they are HOLY, (and they got that by just popping this thought), and we will have to wake up to the fact that that we as man have little comprehension of God’s holiness. It took just one sin. Dear Christian, by faking this, just shows everyone your shallowness. It is not something you think, it is not a concept.
For God has said “you shall surely DIE”. Death is the penalty of sin. Sin takes on a different “meaning” depending on WHOM you sin AGAINST. You will get different treatment from different people. If you sin against your brother or a police officer, or a client, or the bank, or the president – you will receive “punishment” in relation to the one whom you sin against.
It is for this reason, SIN, that we cannot SEE God with our biological eyes. If you were to see Him right now – you WILL FEAR HIM, AND YOU WILL DIE. Sin separated. Sin is exceedingly sinful in the eyes of a HOLY JUST God. God is not partially “love” and partially “just”. He is 100% Love and at the same time he is 100% Just. He does punish sin.
Even of satan (lucifer) it is written:
You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created until iniquity was found in you
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
But God made a PROMISE to Eve that out of her seed, will be born an Anointed one that will crush the evil one. Elsewhere He also promised that He will bring us BACK to “Paradise” one day. And God reminded us of his promise through many shadows of things, types and prophesies. He used ordinary man to write TESTIMONIES of REVELATION. Many have prophesised regarding this PROMISE God made. +/- 500 years before Christ, Daniel prophesised the precise time. Isaiah proclaimed “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
As DEATH was the penalty, God commanded his people to sacrifice spotless clean animals – like a lamb. You were to put your one hand on the head of the lamb, and with the other hand cut his throat. You were to witness the effects of sin. Something had to DIE in your place. Remember that DEATH is the penalty. The death of the spotless lamb was “a shadow of things to come” Because the death of goats and lambs had to be done regularly – as it could not fully pay the PRICE – once and for all – for sin.
Enter the Lamb of God. Lived a perfect / spotless life – was crucified and on the cross proclaimed “It is Paid”.
Our penalty for sin is paid. Forever. Daniel prophesised that offerings and sacrifices would stop. And it did (finally in the year 70AD)
Jesus revealed much about God to us. Consider the 2 greatest commandments.
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
(tons of information and revelation could be added here)
We are not ignorant of the future. In fact, the bible is roughly 30% prophesy – dealing with future events. We know a couple of things of the future.
We know there will be a failing away first (believers not believing anymore), people that hate their mothers and fathers, lovers of themselves. While now, it is difficult to know if a Christian is a “REAL” Christian, there will be a day that there will be a clear distinction made between Holy and Unholy. We know that there will be a great city that was, is not, and will be again – that will make all the kings of the earth to follow her (ok – I submit this already happened in the last 100 years – and is ongoing for now). We know that there will be a “person” that make as if he is Christ that returned (no, I am not talking about the phony antichrists Jthat is funny ) We know that this great city will be destroyed. We know there will be many troubles on earth and a great depression. We know that Christ will return. We know that we will always be with Him.
Woe to you – you fake follower of Christ. Don’t you know that judgement will begin with you? It is due to YOU that unbelievers blaspheme HIS HOLY NAME. You who disregard the call of God to die to yourself and to FOLLOW HIM. Because you were lukewarm, and not hot or cold, He will spat you out of his mouth. You make ordinary the commandments of God while it is promised that He will give of the Tree of Life to those that follow His commandments. It will be better in the day of Judgement for atheist, than for you. You were lied to when you were told that “you are going to heaven” – and worse – you believed the lie!
Woe to you – atheist, lovers of yourself. You also have said on your heart “I , I , I”. Although you claim to be wise, you became fools. Because you say that you are rich and have gotten riches – don’t you know that you are poor and blind and miserable and naked? Don’t you know that EVERY knee will bow, and EVERY tongue will confess Christ on the great and dreadful day of God. Today – if you hear his Voice, harden not your hart – and don’t be wise in your own eyes. Don’t you know that the riches of God’s kindness, tolerance and patience wants to bring you to repentance?
To you that overcome – you will eat of the Tree of Life. Your tears will be wiped by the Christ. Once again will you come to understand God’s GOODNESS. Where there is no death, no sickness. Where the lion lie down with the lamb. Where you will not hear the sound of crying, the voice of the distressed. Where there is no alarm and no business of life.
When Jesus return, he will not come as a little baby – but as a glorious and dreadful JUDGE.

God created everything good
Anointed one prophesised
God Saved – the Lamb sacrificed
Clothed with incorruptibility (Back in “Paradise”)
This is food for both the believer and the atheist. For some to scoff at, and for some to grow with.
