He doesn't even need the book when he has a relationship with his creator.

The hilarious thing is that...atheists agree. That's exactly what we do - we have a worthwhile life without Bible or church. So just what is their problem with atheism? i want them to sit down and ask themselves just what is their Beef with atheism.
they don't have a beef with atheism. they have a beef with atheist like you. they lump all atheist under one flag like you do with people that believe the universe is god.

your tactic of obscuring facts so that theist can't use it and make atheism harder to sell is just plain dishonest.

You are fooling yourself, but you don't fool me.

If the KJV (mistranslated by committee) was to you the Word of God, you wouldn't care what it said, but just having a Jesus that suits you in your head is all that matters?

This only makes any kind of sense if you know that the Bible isn't defensible as being true, either today or when it was written.

How do you know what books I have or haven’t read? How do you know my education background? The fact is, you don’t. You have no valid argument so you degrade your debate opponent. Liberalism 101.

its actually a personality type that does it, not a belief system.

but like most doctors will tell ya. Its when they don't know they are "being triggered" is when its a problem.

The gospel is what is shared with people and it is what saves them. It is not a story in their head. It is a revelation of something they know in their spirit is true. Some people like to know more about the gospel stories, but to others, the main points are enough. That is the reason that the Bible does not completely encapsulate it. The Bible is more like a key to open the door.

So you and other atheists don't understand Christianity because you are just examining the key. You don't even care about the door and what is behind it.
