This retweet really serves to show how little some Atheists (who claim the intellectual high ground no doubt) understand about Christian theology. The doctrine of the Trinity posits that the Father, the Son, and the Spirit are all eternally existent and eternally God. God the Son took on a human nature at the incarnation, it’s not that the Son began to exist. The response from @lilmsgs exposes the ignorance of that which he rejects. He seems to think that the Son didn’t exist until the incarnation of Jesus. Hmm.
Then as expected, someone jumps in to take the Richard Dawkins “don’t argue when you can ridicule instead” approach to debate. I understand that it was probably embarrassing saying something so theologically ignorant so publicly.
The second, however, comes from someone who ought to know better.
The Christian view is that Earth is not our final destination, for anyone. Believers have nothing to worry about, really. Paul assures us that to be gone from this life is to be with the Lord. No matter the trials we endure here it is but a moment compared to eternity in the presence of God in heaven. This is in addition to the fact that moral good and evil on an atheistic world view makes no sense. The only ones who should be worried about what God may do, aren’t: the unbeliever. Alas, they are busy eating, drinking, and being merry.
Ordinarily, it’s not a big deal if someone isn’t totally familiar with the ins and outs of a religion’s theological intricacies, but I find Atheists who make their atheism known on the internet love to brag about how it is their intellect which won’t allow their trust in the Bible or Christ. As we can see, this isn’t always the case.
