Ex-Atheist: "To continue in atheism, I would need to believe nothing produces everything, non-life produces life, randomness produces fine-tuning, chaos produces information, unconsciousness produces consciousness, and non-reason produces reason. I simply didn't have that much faith" – Lee Strobel

    In other words, there is no such thing as a so called atheist. All are sinners who are rebels and liars, guilty and without excuse before God. Who in their wickedness keep suppressing the truth. See Romans 1,2,and 3.

    1. I don’t know. Definitely, there are no atheists in hell, but on earth, there are so many factors, especially evil spirits that control many people’s thoughts and feelings. And pastors seem to be mostly avoiding the issue of how demons affect people (including probably most pastors).
      Paul certainly says what God created reveals a lot about God’s invisible attributes, so people are without excuse:

      “For the invisible things of him [God] from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” – Rom. 1:20

      Many don’t want to believe there is a God so they don’t have to be led by the Holy Spirit, obeying God. They can then be their own god, they think, and can do whatever they feel like doing.
      Almost certainly, they will then be led by evil spirits instead, so Satan will be their god, driving them into disobedience.
      Bob Dylan wrote: “You gotta serve somebody — it may be the Devil, or it might be the Lord, but you gotta serve somebody.”
      What’s really sad is when truly born-again Christians also believe they don’t have to be led by the Holy Spirit, and can willfully sin without consequence. The second they open that sin door the lust demons, etc. have the right to come in and then drive ‘Christians’ into sinning.
      Many ‘Christians’ never get demon free.
      OSAS, once-saved-always-saved can have the same effect as atheism, turning Christians into do-what-thou-wilt Satanists, following evil spirits instead of the Holy Spirit.
