Does god believes in atheists?

I know that atheists do not believe in God, but does God think that there are atheists or he thinks that they are people who deceive themselves? What do you think?

    Of course, no one is born believing in god, therefore everyone is born an atheist. There wouldn't be any atheists if god didn't want there to be.

    Atheism is justified:

    1. If God exists, everything that exists is part of God's plan.

    2. Atheists exist.

    3. Atheists are part of God's plan.

    4. Therefore, God wants atheists to exist.

    "It is an insult to God to believe in God. For on the one hand it is to suppose that he has perpetrated acts of incalculable cruelty. On the other hand, it is to suppose that he has perversely given his human creatures an instrument--their intellect--which must inevitably lead them, if they are dispassionate and honest, to deny his existence. It is tempting to conclude that if he exists, it is the atheists and agnostics that he loves best, among those with any pretensions to education. For they are the ones who have taken him most seriously."

    My first response would be to say that yes, of course God believes in atheists, as He knows everything. And yes, He thinks they are deceiving themselves, or perhaps have been deceived by Satan.

    My second response...is really the same as the first.

    according to probability they * shouldn't *. If God fairly gave each and every physique unfastened will, then atheists, for even though reason, have desperate to not have self assurance. As somebody above already suggested, "arguing" for God's life is quite moot. interior the top, somebody will have self assurance because of the fact the Holy Spirit ultimately convicted them of the fact. If one would not have self assurance interior the Holy Spirit, i don't see that occuring. If an atheist comes to a decision their cutting-edge life would not sense "good", they're going to look for some thing else. Do Christians have a "extra valuable" life because of the fact of God? seem at Paul, he became into crushed, whipped and run out of city for his ideals. Christians would say Christianity brings them convenience. An atheist might retort that they like no such crutch. Christians would say they sin much less. Ha! Neither has a lock on morality. You reported that we can not use "the afterlife" as a help for why Christianity is extra valuable. If this way of disadvantage is placed on the reaction, then we would desire to stick with stories in this earth. if so, if we shrink our reaction to life in the international, we would discover that the atheist might * continually * think of their life is extra valuable as an unbeliever. it is not until eventually you become a have self assurance that your attitude adjustments to comprise the afterlife. --- extra ---- i spotted you suggested the two "interior the long-term" and "brushing off the afterlife". To a Christian, the two are inseparable.

    Yes! God believes in atheists. Atheists are not deceitful, they have chosen a path that is the right one for them. God has no problem with people who have faith in their own beliefs, and cause no harm to others as a result of their belief.

    To a follower who insisted on knowing, "Is there a God?", Shakyamuni replied

    with the parable of the poison arrow. "if you were shot by a poison arrow, and

    a doctor was summoned to extract it, what would you do? Would you ask such

    questions as who shot the arrow, from which tribe did he come, who made the

    arrow, who made the poison, etc., or would you have the doctor immediately pull

    out the arrow?"

    "Of course," replied the man, "I would have the arrow pulled out as quickly as

    possible." The Buddha concluded, "That is wise O disciple, for the task

    before us is the solving of life's problems; when that is done, you may still

    ask the questions you put before me, if you so desire."

    A nonexistent being is incapable of belief or nonbelief.

    You might as well ask "what color is the smell of the other side of this here mobius loop?"

    And, um, Bob? a-theist 'no' 'god'. As in, we do not believe in a god at all, any of the millions man has invented.

    Of course God believes in atheists. God believes in and loves everybody. God may know that atheists are simply ignorent. close minded, or in denial. But he's ready to accept and he'll always love them....

    God is all knowing. He knows each of our hearts. He loves every single person in this world He created. All He wants is people to trust, believe, and have faith in Him and His son Jesus Christ who died on the cross to save us from our sins.

    I happen to like this short childrens poem and think it actually applies rather marvelously...

    "To those who don't believe in Dragons

    It is curiously true

    that the Dragons you so disparage

    Choose not to believe in you"
