I will live my life according to these beliefs
God does not exist
It is just foolish to think
That there is an all knowing God with a cosmic plan
That an all powerful God brings purpose to the pain and suffering in the world
Is a comforting thought, however
Is only wishful thinking.
People can do whatever they want without eternal consequences
The idea that
I am deserving of hell
Because of sin,
Is a lie, meant to make me a slave to those in power
“The more you have the happier you will be.”
Our existence has no grand meaning or purpose
In a world with no God
There is freedom to be who I want to be
But with God
Life is an endless circle of guilt and shame
Everything is fine
It is ridiculous to think
I am lost and in need of saving.
But that is before Christ opened my eyes, changed my heart, and reversed my thinking.

There may come a time when you may think that God doesn’t exist, that you can do whatever you want without eternal consequences, that your existence has no meaning or purpose; but in reality, there is proof of God’s existence (Romans 1:18-23), every action you do and every thought you think determines where you will end up for eternity (Romans 2:1-11), you mean the world to so many people including God (Luke 12:6-7). When you reverse your thinking, you begin to realize that life is an endless circle of guilt and shame without God, that it is foolish to think that God does not exist.
Life without God is not fun at all; it is full of unnecessary pain, worry, suffering, and tears. Life with God is so much more wonderful. At first, living the way God wants us to may seem a little overwhelming, that there are “too many rules” that will make life not fun at all. I’m here to tell you that that’s not the case. I have experienced life in sin and life in God’s grace. Life as a child of God is far more pleasant than a life full of sin. Because of God being the center of my life, I am no longer worried about the things that used to worry me, I don’t break down and cry because I think that life is so terrible, I have gained so many great friends because of my relationship with Christ.
To live a life full of happiness, we have to follow exactly what God has commanded us to do. We must follow the plan of salvation. We have to hear the gospel (Romans 10:17), believe (Hebrews 11:6), repent (Acts 2:38), confess (Romans 10:9), be baptized (Acts 2:38), and live faithfully (Revelation 2:10).
