Nah... I would go to Hell and party with the rest of the unbelievers and [of course] all of theose billions throughout history unfortunate enough to have accidently worshipped the wrong god. We'd have a party... bet Satan has some kickin' weed and the best boose out there. lol
Afterall, technically, by the time "jesus arrives" it would be too late to be saved anyway... so the best I could hope for is a nice spot in hell.
To be honest , he would probably find less fault with most Atheist , than most Christians . I studied to be a pastor years ago . God judges by peoples hearts according to the Bible and what light was revealed to them . There are people all over the world even in jungles that never heard a thing about God or Jesus ..but yet they are good people . Would this be a just God to judge them because they never knew him....... I think not and if it is so Then I guess we will go round and round with the discussion on judgement day .....hahah. Most of us Atheist live the live of humanist , we care about the world and those around us ..most Atheist I know would give you the shirt off their back . They seam more concerned about the problems of the world than most christians ,as I have said before Christians pray about the world ...Atheist try to fix it .
Interesting indeed. Enjoyed your post a lot. There is a lot of truth to what you said. God treated his best followers in a very horrible way. Moses after a lifetime of servitude wasn't allowed in the promise land, jesus was violently beaten and killed, jon the baptist was beheaded and countless others met a terrible end and received extremely harsh punishments by it for doing it's work.
Unfortunately I would fall into the category of the black heart I guess you could say. I long to help the world and build a better society but i wouldn't allow myself to reap the benefits of the society. There is just no place in a perfect world for people like me, but that's another story.
If the God that appeared were the God of the Bible then I would obviously believe he was real. But would I worship him/ No, I don't think so. The God of the Bible is one of the most unjust and unsavory characters that I could imagine. I would consider it my moral requisite to oppose such a being.
I would be scared that such an evil, jealous, vindictive, angry, genocidal, and petty entity existed and would fear for all of humanity. Honestly, how could you ever trust such a prick to be benevolent to anyone?
Thank you! That's exactly how I feel, and I've tried to express that to my believing family and friends. If that god exists, we're all f**ked no matter what we do. Ever read Job? Yeah. God has a track record of raking his most devout followers over the coals just to prove to his arch nemesis, Lucifer, that he can. I would never trust him!
And if he forced me to worship (like Christians believe he one day will), he still loses. Oh it's really impressive that an all-powerful being can force me to my knees; torture me into admitting his awesomeness. At the end of the day (or time), he's still just a cosmic bully with no real friends.
If the evidence was incontrovertable then of course I would convert. Ours is not a position of "belief" it's one of going where the evidence points to.
Ask a religious person a similar question: "What evidence would it take you to realize that god was a myth?" Or a simpler (and less loaded) version: "What would it take for you to end your faith in jesus/yahweh/muhammad/zeus?"
You'll soon see that it has little to do with evidence.
