No One Wants Society Based on Unbelief

[175 words]

For some, religion is a fairy tale for children and a false hope for the aged. To those folks, God is the product of a weak mind and Jesus is a fanatic who demonstrated this characteristic. They believe heaven is a Christian’s wishful thinking and hell only a believer’s nightmare. They charge that sin is the invention of the hypocritical pious who partake of the very actions they condemn. Yet, those very folks do not want a society based upon their unbelief. AIDS, social diseases, murder, hatred, envy, and a number of other lifestyles would be more prevalent if there were not good people who keep our society from going further into a destructive horror. Christians are taught to recognize and confess their sins (1 John 1:8,10). And yes, Christianity has it share of hypocrites. Peter had to be corrected for manifesting it (Galatians 2:11-14). However, the core believers are folks who follow Jesus because he is the only one who can cleanse us from our sins and give us real life.
