Avoid the rush. Go now. Avoid the long lines. Can you imagine the millions or billions that will be ahead of you if you wait until everybody else goes?

Do you wonder why you hesitate? Maybe it is because deep in your better thoughts you know it isn't real?

When faced with illness or death the faithful fight it just as hard as the atheist.

You know better than this. I still see you trying to cast all doubt on eternity! Get ready HWPeeler...

It is coming to everyone, even all of these non-believers. I can promise you that you will spend eternity in 1 place or another. God gave us earth (not heaven) for now. Heaven is for eternity with a loving God... no more pain... and no more death. But you have to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and follow HIM. :))

A nice dream from people who have a hard time living this life. I suggest you enjoy the world god gave us instead of yearning for a perfect world. When in heaven will you obsess on the flaws of that world?

This world and this life is good, appreciate and be thankful for it. Thank god for it. It may be all you get.

I have had a great life thanks to God and his spiritual guidance. Without God you can't have the life that he intended for you to have. I am just saying it be a sad ordeal to know death then nothing. God is with us and (guides us) to do his will and at the same time will not push us. You have already made your decision to not believe in God. Yet at the same time your speaking of enjoying what God gave us... makes no sense to me at all. I do know that each and every day you question God's existence. I do thank God for this life, and the one he says he goes and prepares a place for us. HEAVEN...

True, but such is life.

To not believe in your God, yes.

There we agree.

I just don't find the bible stories believable. If the bible is the word of God we must take the words as they appear. We don't get to reinterpret them as we wish. Mankind only a few thousand years old? No. The flood? No. God is a voice in our head? No. Parting seas? No. Heal lepers? No. Raise the dead? No. Walk on water? No. All just myths about a god that looks like a human. Like Zeus or Oden? No.

God is a voice in our head?

The voice is spiritual and it helps you to understand the Bible. You soul in other words. We don't even deserve to be here now but God loved us enough to give us that chance.

Jesus said* Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.

When they came to the place called The Skull, they crucified Him there, along with the criminals, one on His right and the other on His left. 34Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided up His garments by casting lots. The people stood watching, and the rulers sneered at Him, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.”…

They doubted Jesus... just like you have your doubts now. Were mere humans but we will get a new (spiritual body) that will not rot and we will live for eternity. Yes, we have to live this life out to the best of our ability. As you seem to be a good person but you cannot see God. Meaning you cannot be saved until you believe what happen on the cross.

One God, a billion different voices? The understanding I get from this inspiration is quite different from what you get. Yes, this defines "soul". It is a byproduct of our electro-chemistry. When the electro-chemistry stops working I don't see what else survives. Electro-chemistry requires atomic structure to exist. No body, no soul. If you think otherwise explain your reasoning. Belief is not reasoning.

After the fall of Adam, human beings no longer possessed the ability to correctly understand spiritual matters (1 Corinthians 2:14). It is our nature to distort the truth (2 Peter 3:16). So we need the help of the Holy Spirit even to understand and accept the fact that Jesus is Lord (1 Corinthians 12:3).

This explains why it is impossible to “reason someone into heaven.” Salvation is accomplished by God’s grace received through faith in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8; Romans 3:24; Titus 3:5). It is ultimately the Holy Spirit who convinces people and enables them to receive Christ (John 16:8–15).

Some may ask, “Why then should we do apologetics? Why should we try to reason with people if it is the Holy Spirit who will ultimately convince them?”

There are two reasons.

First, God tells us to. We are to be ready at all times to give a good reason for our faith (1 Peter 3:15). So it is our duty as followers of Christ to preach the gospel (2 Timothy 4:2) and reason with unbelievers (Acts 17:17).

Second, God can bless our discussions with unbelievers and use them as part of the process by which He brings people to Himself (Romans 10:13–14). Although salvation is accomplished by Christ alone, God has given us the privilege of telling others about this good news and making a reasoned defense of it.

Reasoning is a crucial part of defending the faith. But we must always keep in mind that conversion is up to God alone.

It is not our job to “convince” the unbeliever—nor can we. It is our job to make a good case; it is the Holy Spirit’s prerogative alone to bring repentance.

One Christian may plant a seed, and another water it, but God alone brings the increase (1 Corinthians 3:6–7).

What happens in a mans heart... depends on him and him alone. Christians try to make a good case for God, because we are known as soul winners. But only 'Man' must decided for themselves if they plan to really seek God. I would say that all of this eats at your soul on a daily bases. Your are thinking what if I am wrong and she/ or he is right. What if you miss God's will for you Life?

Who do you think created Electro-chemistry? The Bible is very clear on who created everything in the heavens and earth. This life is temporarily and end times is coming soon. Not sure if you want to face that being a non- Christian. We're not perfect but every thing God states in the Bible will happen. You have FREE will... and you are hell bent on not choosing God. :(

I agree we have a hard time seeing these things, but my problem is that everybody gets a different feedback from that "Holy Spirit". You tell me WHAT you believe without a line of reasoning that leads to a conclusion. You quote myths as though they were reasoning.

Statements that are associated with other statements are not reasoning. Your reasoning is not built on a foundation of facts. It is just beliefs referenced to other beliefs. Myths.

Genetics is based on organic chemistry which is based on chemistry which is based on atomic theory which is based on physics supported by mathematics. Theories are questioned and confirmed by testing.
