Some people don't believe in God, and they don't realise the importance of prayer. I think this is a shame. I was brought up as a Christian and I pray every day.

Mankind is wicked and wants nothing to do with their own creator, but I would not tell anybody that God loves them, because it is not true. God said, he loved Jacob, the christian and he hated Esau the unsaved. So, why would you tell them this?? It is nit true, The bible does not say God loves everyone..So, why should you???

People wouldn't get mad unless you were doing one of the, "I will pray for your soul so you come to Jesus and won't burn forever," things. That's obnoxious. If someone is sick and you say that, it's just a nice thing to say. Most atheists will just say thank you.

Satan loves you. I have a satanic friend who says he will do a prayer for you in Satan's name. A small ceremony. Over in like a minute. Really. He is working on it now. He says he does not need to know your exact name. Your ID of Mafel is good enough. And it is done. A lot less impressive than I expected but still it was interesting. Now. You have had someone pray to Satan in your name. How do you feel?

Because we are all scared underneath. We want to know subconciously that we are going to a better place without being held to a higher standard. I am stuck between beliving and not beliving. Thinking god is a tyrant or my greatest friend. I am not afraid to admit it. I'm scared. No one in their right mind would be sane while we walk on this tightrope of life.

Answer #19 | 05/01 2015 20:48
There's an arrogance in saying "G-d loves you" which you may not realize. The problem is, when you say that, you imply that you know G-d better than they do. And when you offer to pray for them, you're implying that you have powers they don't have. Next time an atheist gets angry at you, ask them if that's the reasons.

Maybe they find it offensive in a way, like you're imposing God on them when they want nothing to do with it. I personally am not a believer but my family is and they tell me that a lot. I don't get mad, I just find it sad that they can't accept and respect my decisions.

Well, atheists only like people who think like them, act like them, walk like them, and breathe like them. If you post a Christian post on your public Social media account and they randomly find it, they will begin pressuring you into their belief that God is not real and even offend you. Atheists don't want to understand that there are people who do not want to listen to their advice. Atheists have no love or kindness. Of course, there are agnostics and atheists who kindly say that they do not wish to speak about God and move on with their day, without verbally abusing anyone. However, if an atheist does not want to have a Christian pressure him into believing in God, why does he pressure a Christian to stop believing in God and focusing on the belief of atheists? If people knew how to love each other despite their different religious views, perhaps our country wouldn't be such a mess. You did the right thing, just continue praying to God for this person. A lot of atheists have later repented to Christ like Leo Tolstoy.
