Genuine Christianity and Genuine Atheism

If you’re going to be a Christian, then be a genuine Christian.  Being a follower but only in name isn’t enough – you need to apply your faith in this world.

Let’s be realistic here: Following Jesus is the most difficult thing you’ll ever do in your life.  You’ll fail plenty of times and in more ways than you’ll care to admit.  But the point is, at least you try, and I think in the end that’s all that would matter.  God appreciates the effort; we can and should trust in His infinite love and mercy.

Contrasting this is not ever trying at all.  If the Christian life is something that you can’t be bothered with, it would be just honest and right to leave the faith and follow another belief, or follow no belief anymore, whichever is a better fit for the life you want to live.  At the end of the day, it’s important to be true to yourself.  And knowing how much God respects our free will, He wouldn’t want it any other way.

And if you’re going to be an atheist, then be a genuine atheist.  Some people don’t believe God exists because, in good conscience and reason, they sincerely believe that He doesn’t exist.  But some people don’t believe God exists because they have reasons why they don’t want Him to exist.
