Reasonable Doubt Really?

I’m surrounded daily by questions from non-believers and one thing that I have noticed about the questions is kind of astounding.  The questions are   usually not about the New Testament, none of the epistles ever come into question.  What’s amusing is that no matter who the atheist or agnostic is; or their background or even their reasons for their doubt seems to not matter.  They all stand on the same arguments.  It is as if once you have decided to not believe in God you have to go to anti-Christ orientation or something.    As if they hand out flash card of things to repeat to Christians.  I don’t mean that in a hateful way.  Plus I have yet to meet an atheist that is respectful.  I’ve been called  ignorant, brain washed, foolish, stupid, lost, primitive and worse.  But all of their talking points center on; Genesis, God’s wrath, Hell, Satan, the Flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, the burning bush and Jesus.  If you look at this list what is the correlation here? sin and God’s judgment on the sinner.  On the surface they argue the supernatural events or those things that seem impossible like a burning bush or Jesus casting our demons.  But in reality its the fact of being judge and called guilty.  The notion of needing a Savior is offense to them.  They quickly condemn the bible as fables or primitive people trying to explain nature. The internal evidence that testify of the bibles divine origin is an important fact to consider which is its unity. Even though it is really sixty-six individual books, written on three continents, in three different languages, over a period of approximately 1500 years, by more than 40 authors who came from many walks of life, the Bible remains one unified book from beginning to end without contradiction. This unity is unique from all other books and is evidence of the divine origin of the words which God moved men to record.

Then they say that they don’t need anyone to tell them how to be “good”.  On one hand you can be fairly good all your life without ever stepping into a church or being Christian but on the other who has defined what is “good”?  If man defines what is good then its very possible but since we live in a world were everything is relative, good can be anything.  See,  God is not relative but absolute, it actually shines a very very bright holy light on what it means to be good.  People detest the bible and mask it behind the unbelievable stories, to draw attention away from God’s requirement for complete holiness.  The bible represents God and His standards plan and simple.  If you don’t wish to hold to those standards then so be.  Just get out of the way and let Christians live!
