Confused on Atheist Belief/Movement


This is has been an issue that has been gaining traction for years, if not decades. It seems the more we move forward as a nation, the more we leave behind our trust in faith, and our belief in a creator. The issue, in my opinion, strongly goes hand in hand with the recent push of a culture that places a great deal of emphasis on "self", and of course, on the growing lack of accountability, morals, and ethical conduct in times today.

Obviously, if your a DP devotee, you know that I am a Christian. Admittedly, and until I take my last breath, I strongly believe and trust in Jesus. I'm not afraid or ashamed to say that. If you're a new reader, there it is. 

As a person of faith, obviously my view on this is conflicting to where our society is moving. Would I want everyone to love and trust Jesus? Of course, but I know that's not 1. possible, or 2. going to happen in one blog post. 

However, what really strikes me from the video is indeed the growing effort of Atheists to renounce the  message of, or even the belief, that there is a God. With growing social media efforts, rallies, and even celebrity endorsements, it's seems like a full onslaught attack to tell everyone that my God is not real. That there is no being. And faith in itself is mythical. 

My biggest perplexity in this all is the mere end game of Atheism. Sure, as a Christian, my views, beliefs, and faith do no line up with the other religions of the world. Take your pic - Judiasm, Hinduism, Islam, and even those of Jehovah Witnesses, Mormons, or even, the trendy by Tom Cruise, Scientology. Whether which is right or wrong is not the issue in my point, but the mere fact that faith, the sole strength of one's soul, must be focused somewhere by all humans. 

In Atheism, it seems like the sole purpose of its purpose is a dedication to destroy every form of belief there is. However, if we play by the rules of that thinking, where does that leave us? OK, let's play by their rules. There is no God. So what or how did we get here? Atheism under it's umbrella of belief do not completely agree on the matter of our purpose or existence, however, they are sure God does not exist.

So with that, what is the end game in getting people to realize God is fictional? 

As a Christian, I can assure you saving souls and lives through Jesus is that "goal" in Christianity, and I feel pretty confidant in speaking for other forms of belief that improving one's self is well. 

Its rather easy to sit around and tell everyone why something isn't without responsibility or accountability. I can tell you until the end of days why golf isn't a sport. However, if I am unable to tell you what golf is, then what am I really contributing?

By the way, golf is fantastic. I'm sure some of you were already lining up the tweets and messages defending the highly skilled sport. 

Nonetheless, the growing atheism movement seems empty of truth and void of substantial logic in it's mission. 

And to be brutally honest, I find the fact that the Atheism movement being so geared in it's attacks on Christianity to be a sign of aggressive desperation that is needed to oppose the greatest foe to their mission.

Unfortunately, there are some that share my faith who give ammunition to the Atheists, with some misrepresenting the faith altogether. And this is the case for other religion and faiths as well.

For a nation that was indeed built on faith principles despite how many times we attempt to throw "separation of church and state in the argument", it is the combination of the Atheistic movement and even the  misrepresentation of the Christian faith that has given momentum in favor away from belief in God.

Do I believe our nation has removed God from this country? 

Brutally, honest answer: yes. 

And that's a topic that can span several posts. Maybe even a months worth. 

However, why, is the question I still do not understand. And I will love to hear or even debate from someone of the conflicting opinion.

So yes, I am concerned about this growing trend of doing away with a loving God that has blessed this country thus far, but I cannot take atheism seriously until it really puts forward a positive foot not bent on tearing down others.

Or even capitalizing on the mistakes and missteps of those that oppose them. 

After all, these folks all celebrate Christmas. 

Pretty hard to understand a group geared toward promoting the idea that Jesus is fictional, yet, celebrate it in honor of his birth.

I just don't get it. - all of it.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/25/22

3  Up 1. Albert Pujols - 700 homeruns is insane. Even through a generation of steroids, the number is incredibly exclusive (sans, you know, Bonds). So much props to Pujols who literally puts himself in some rarified discussions among the game's greatest.  Here are some quick thoughts from yours truly on Pujols hitting 700 .  2. PATHFINDER - The fight against cancer just got a smidge better. GRAIL announced results from their PATHFINDER study that may have found ways to provide early detection screening to significantly enhance the discovery of cancer well before symptoms begin.  I accidentally ran into this story - why isn't this more headline news? SMH.  3. Pandemic Over? - The World Health Organization (remember them, before everyone suddenly became public health experts) described COVID as an "acute global emergency". Going even further, announced that 20M global deaths were avoided last year due to vaccines. Just outright amazing.  3 Down 1. Brett Favre - No resp

5 Thoughts on Pujols Hitting 700

It almost feels like the negative vitriol that surrounded Major League Baseball and its labor issues have dissipated into an air of forgetfulness and forgiveness. A season that has brought us old-school lore with the chasing of historical numbers by way of Aaron Judge and Albert Pujols, and the likes of a modern-day Babe Ruth, in another dominant season by Shohei Ohtani, would ultimately do that. Sprinkle in some amazing rookies on the rise, and all of sudden it's, what did I say about baseball's treatment of fans? It's been some season... In this post, I want to focus on Albert Pujols...the "King", the "Machine", one of the greatest ever. After hitting a historic 700th Home Run ( by the way, I definitely predicted that back in March  - just humble-bragging a bit), I wanted to drop five (fitting, yeah?) thoughts on Albert Pujols:  GREATEST EVER?! - Pujols' career often feels like the Angels' years were some sort of nightmare or a bad edition in a

Durant Showed Us Who He Was

When people show you who they are, believe them.  That's what my thought process is reduced to regarding Kevin Durant, his trade request from the Brooklyn Nets, and well, everything else that surrounds the latest drama that has taken over the NBA (and in many ways, the sports world).  Kevin Durant is immensely talented. Superhuman in so many ways. If you see him in person (as I have many times at the Barclays Center as a Brooklyn Net, and once at the Staples Center as a young member of the Oklahoma City Thunder), you're simply in awe of his stature, his ability, and his grace on the court. It's the kind of aura that keeps you believing in the aura of pro sports, and the sheer exclusiveness of these human beings. It's in the same realm as LeBron James and Steph Curry, physical and ability marvels that go just beyond remarkable, existing in a realm of specialness that cannot be described other than comprehension with the eyes.  Kevin Durant is one of my favorite athletes

Dope Sports Threads - Nike City Connect Series (Los Angeles Angels) | MLB July 4th Hats

The Los Angeles Angels Nike City Connect uniforms might be the very first in the collection that makes a clear argument in style, practicality, and overall aesthetics to replace - yes, REPLACE! - the everyday uniforms.  That's no hyperbole from me. I really love the look of these threads and feel like the uniforms not only capture the mission statement of the collection but ultimately, do more for Angel's brand.  Let's dig in shall we... The biggest appeal to the uniforms for me is easy - simplicity. Nike and the Angels did not go crazy in trying to capture the "Los Angeles" in its identity, especially, considering the roots that are heavy (and controversial) in Anaheim. The overall look is clean, and with that, carries a tremendous cream overtone that drives the concept home.  The design is based off of the beach, the coastline, and everything that is summer in SoCal - baseball, beach, surfing, and good vibes. Check. Check. Check, and ultimately, check.  Pulling
