I think atheist are thinking in double standards, and I believe that none of them deny the existence of empathy

let's see here, no one can see, hear, smell, taste and textually touch the existence of empathy, it's as undetectable as carbon monoxide, yet carbon monoxide can be detected by scientific instruments

yet, empathy cannot be fit in a test-tube, and I highly doubt there's ever scientific data, or scientific proof as subjective experience cannot be objectively proven

On what grounds do atheist claim that empathy do exist? by what evidence?

why apply different standards to determine the existence of God?

if God is dismissed as nonexistence because of no physical existence, then what possible physical existence do empathy have? if none, why the double standard here?

Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who
Bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the
Citizen who cares for his brother in the field and
Serves, as he best can, the same cause

what you are saying is, there's no limit to your spiritual potential, because you are trying to tell us that we should trust in God who can easily exceed our limitations, and God is capable of bringing us to unpredictable heights.

knowing is one thing, but applying is a totally different story

See, you are giving yourself and excuse to fail, before you started.

Trusting HIM to do what you cannot, means YOU TO TOTALLY TRUST HIM, with out questions.
Once you start TRUSTING HIM LIKE THAT, it is easy to continually TRUST HIM.

I really like what you said about THERE IS NO LIMIT TO YOUR SPIRITUAL POTENTIAL. THAT DESERVES A BIG AMEN!


Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Hi theanointedwinner, I'm not sure who your post is directed to but I will say you have a winning argument for the proof of the existence of God. But then you say "why the double standard." It is because Atheist are sinners and do not give a hoot about the truth or the bible so that your reasoning and logic fall on deaf ears.

James 4:8
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts,
you double-minded.

God bless!

What is Ironic is the FACT that Atheism qualifies as a Religion.

And I believe this to be true also:

2 Peter 3:3-4 (HCSB)
3 First, be aware of this: Scoffers will come in the last days to scoff, living according to their own desires,
4 saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? Ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they have been since the beginning of creation.”

I don't have a set belief on this but was thinking this. Have you ever done studies on the word "air" as in caught up in the air? Also, as a thief in the night. Night...means several things in Hebrew so it could be helpful to study this word out too. Thief is evident.

I think I will look at this. :)
