Not trying to generalize, but there are a bunch of atheists out there who have everything they want, or most, in life...while here are Christians/Catholics who are struggling to maintain a comfortable/stable life?

Because there is no god.

Have a nice day.

Because good things also happen to religious people, and bad things also happen to atheists.

Alternatively: because God never promised that bad things wouldn't happen to religious people.

Those who follow Jesus are told to expect bad things to happen to them.

Atheists have everything they want (generalizing) because they make friends with the world. The bible says that friendship with the world is enmity with God. We cannot be friends with the world, thus we don't get any of those benefits.

The bible says that? Really?

I thought it was all about loving and caring for one another? Humanity as One? One Love? What happened to that?

The bible says that


James 4:4
"Adulteresses, do YOU not know that the friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever, therefore, wants to be a friend of the world is constituting himself an enemy of God."

John 15:19
"If YOU were part of the world, the world would be fond of what is its own. Now because YOU are no part of the world, but I have chosen YOU out of the world, on this account the world hates YOU."

And Jesus goes on to say in the next verse "If they have persecuted me, they will persecute YOU also"

I thought it was all about loving and caring for one another? Humanity as One? One Love? What happened to that?


The bible is a big book. All that's in there, with the exception of One Love.
"One Love" is a song by Bob Marley.

No need to be a smart ass really. I was just referring to one love meaning more or less the same as humanity as one. Please don't do it again, it makes you look foolish.

And with that said, today i learn that God doesn't want us to love the world.

Bible ftw.

Even as a generalization this is incredibly stupid.

You will learn very quickly that OW does not care about looking foolish. There's a ~300 post topic filled with him trying to rationalize slavery, genocide, and rape in order to keep his belief that his god is perfectly good and just.

How does one become "friends with the world"?
