So many threads asking: "Well what if someone have never heard the name of Jesus Christ before... What happens to them"?

But I ASK YOU..".You've HEARD, What's your excuse"?
Honestly even if you did join a sect of Christianity and prayed to Jesus, you will still find an endless number of Christians from other sects who say you are doomed to hell.

That proves nothing besides the fact that I exist. Connecting existence to a god concept without first proving that that god exists is faulty logic.

Do I need to continue?

You want to know what I do find "questioning"? Why would any self-professed atheist waste their time trying to so adamantly disprove a God they don't believe in, in the first place? Or, is it deep down inside, you don't really believe that? Just curious? Are you unconsciously seeking?

On the contrary.....you are here for a reason! I'm here for a reason, maybe you just have'nt found your "purpose"? God does'nt make mistakes.

It's not a matter of disproving anything. It's a matter of pointing out that if you make a claim, the burden is on you to prove it. You're claiming your god exists, but you can't prove it.

If you are already sold out on, "No! God does'nt exist", then how are you to believe anything anyone say to you? Then anything I say to you is pointless.

Are you really willing to accept the answer? How neutral are you? To truth...
