Q:

I respect your right to your opinions, but in my view, there's no difference between humans and other animals. We're more highly developed, but that's all, and when we die, we'll be just like they are: dead and gone.


A:

My heart goes out to you, because I can’t imagine living without hope — which is what you’re doing (whether you realize it or not). If this life is all there is, if there’s no heaven or life beyond the grave, if we’ll never see our loved ones again, then life has no meaning and hope is an illusion.

But God says otherwise — and my prayer is that you will have the courage to be open to what His Word says. The Bible says we aren’t here by accident, nor are we just highly-developed animals. God created us and deliberately placed within us a soul or spirit, so we could know Him and experience His presence. The Bible says, “So God created man in his own image … male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27).

How do I know this is true? I know it for several reasons, but most of all because of Jesus Christ. He was God in human form, who came down from heaven to show us that God loves us. He did this by removing the barrier between us and God — a barrier caused by our sin.

Yesterday, millions of Christians around the world celebrated the greatest event in human history: the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Don’t ignore Him, for by His resurrection from the dead He gave us hope — hope of God’s presence with us right now, and hope for eternity. And this hope can be yours, by committing your life to Jesus Christ.

    Respect all you want, it won't change your life ans gain you entry into heaven.

    “I respect your beliefs” ever heard that before? What if your beliefs were false,untrue,a fantasy or not real? Would you respect a lie? Remember Pascal's wager.

  3. Danmo says:

    Respect all you want, in the end the fire will purge.

  4. Chucko says:

    Evolution has done so much damage to man's dignity and hope, but have you ever looked into Darwin's other evolutionary beliefs that are kept well hidden by evolutionists from the general public, shocking to say the least!

  5. Pascal's wager says:

    If you think your belief system without Christ is right,you may think you have nothing to worry about, BUT, if you are wrong, you have much to worry about; Jesus is the only way!

  6. Descartes says:

    If you are right you have nothing to lose, but, if you are wrong, you have everything to lose and much to worry about, think on this
