Atheist: “You don’t need God.”

A new ad, launched by the Center for Inquiry on Tuesday, March 2, 2011, is seen here at the Farragut West Metro station in Washington, D.C.

A humanist group launched on Tuesday a multimedia ad campaign, declaring that atheists and the nonreligious can live good, meaningful lives without God.

“You don’t need God – to hope, to care, to love, to live,” the ad states.

The campaign is sponsored by the Center for Inquiry, an Amherst, N.Y.-based organization whose mission is to foster a secular society based on science, reason, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values.

CFI president and CEO Ronald A. Lindsay said the ads are aimed at dispelling some myths about the nonreligious.

“One common myth is that the nonreligious lead empty, meaningless, selfish, self-centered lives. This is not only false, it’s ridiculous,” he said in a statement. “Unfortunately, all too many people accept this myth because that’s what they hear about nonbelievers.”

CFI asserts that nonreligious people can find meaning in a life that is human-centered, and that reliance on the supernatural is unnecessary.

Another myth that the group is looking to dispel – that the nonreligious are immoral, or at least that they can’t be relied upon to be as good as those with religious beliefs.

“One reason this myth persists is many religious believers see their god or their faith as the basis for emotions such as hope, caring, and love,” the organization pointed out. “We don’t deny that the religious may find inspiration in their beliefs – but our religious friends should not presume that accepting their beliefs is necessary for a fulfilling life.”

My Comment:

The Word of God is pretty specific on what will happen to those that do not believe in Jesus Christ Our Savior. The lie that God does not exist, or that you do not need Jesus Christ as your Savior is a lie from the devil himself.

There’s so much power in this statement, and it’s Jesus himself that’s stating it:

John 8:24

“Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I AM He, you will die in your sins.”

Do not fall into the deception. Jesus Christ lives and is coming soon. One would only have to pick up the Word of God, and compare the “signs of the times” to what is happening now, and see that Christ lives, and will return shortly.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
