Re: Atheist's Wager

I'll paraphrase for you: What do you benefit if you do more good than anyone else, but lose your soul?

The Atheist wager seems to assume that God does not reward those who have faith in Jesus. It only contemplates earning salvation.

And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Mark 8:36

What's that got to do with the Atheist's Wager?

Atheist's Wager

New to me:

The Atheist's Wager, formulated by the philosopher Michael Martin and published in his 1990 book Atheism: A Philosophical Justification, is an atheistic response to Pascal's Wager regarding the existence of God.

Re: Gospel Tweets

Here's mine. Not the Gospel in a tweet, but rather my thoughts about the Gospel:

The Gospel:
Some say it's love.
Some say it's sin.
No way to know.
The truth.
Live a good life.
Do your best.
If that's not [more]

Choose for yourself the way you will follow, the way of the sword or the Way of Jesus Christ.

Where "kill or be killed" might be a moral principle of some, and part of natural law, it is not one that I wish integrated into my moral principles.

Re: Gospel Tweets

This is my friend's Gospel in a sentence:

"We are acceptable to God, not according to cultural standards, religious or not, but according to the heart, the virtues, humility, to love God by loving others."

Gospel Tweets

A friend sent me his version of the Gospel as a tweet. I thought it might be interesting to post your idea of the Gospel, or what it means to you, in the form of a tweet (that is, 140 characters or less).

Re: Seven Things Atheists Get Wrong

There is pretty much universal agreement on the core of morality. There is, admittedly, some sorting out around the fringes still going on, and there is also an ongoing need to vet moral principles in relation to new technological [more]
