|Afterlife (comics) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
Many Christians are clearly uninterested in making the world a better place. They obsess about something called "the rapture" and imagine that their time here will be too brief to make any sort of impact. I suppose these Christians are in fact living for some sort of afterlife.
But others at least claim to care about improving their present worlds. Why is this important to them? Is it because they think they will be rewarded for it, or are there other reasons?
And how about morality? Some Christians believe that one of their deities (Jesus I think) already somehow guaranteed their place in "heaven." When he died, their sins were forgiven. For these Christians, I wonder how they could refrain from raping and murdering at will. After all, if they are already destined for eternal rewards, why would they remain moral during their brief time on Earth?
If you recognized that I am writing this post in something other than a completely serious tone for the purpose of highlighting the absurdity of many of the things atheists hear from Christians on the subject of morality, kudos to you.
