Our God (when I say “our God” I mean the Creator of heaven, earth, and all of us) has more regard for an atheist who tries to live morally than He does for a Christian who does not.
Christians will say that Jesus wants everyone to be a Christian. The truth, according to the Bible, is that Jesus wants everyone to do right.
An atheist who loves his wife and children is doing better than a Christian who divorces his wife.
An atheist who serves others has more approval from God than a Christian who lives selfishly.
Yes, God wants us to acknowledge Him but what good is acknowledging Him if we’re not trying to live as morally as we know how? If we profess a faith in Christ but don’t live morally then we just give people a reason to regard faith with contempt.
As for the atheist who truly wants to be moral in all that he does, he will not be able to remain an atheist for long – even though hypocritical “believers” present an obstacle he must step over.
