Maybe Christians expect to much out of Atheists? After all an Atheist owes nothing to God. God does not ask the Atheist to suffer for Him. He doesn't call the Atheist to serve Him. The Atheist isn't expected to be separate from the ideologies of the world. These are only things that the Christian is expected to do.
The Church is here primarily to love and glorify God. Then we are to take care of each other inside the church as we evangelize to those who are outside the church. Once again the Atheist has no roll in this plan, so in my opinion they don't owe God anything.
When someone accepts Christ they are the ones who are responsible for their actions and motives to why they do things. Christians are the ones who will be judged by Christ for how they controlled their "old nature". Or how we spent our time and our money. How we treated others or used the talents God gave us.
I owe God my life, and am grateful. The Atheist doesn't believe God created any life yet alone their life. Yet many will say that if there is a God they didn't ask for life so they still don't owe God anything. When I hear statements like these; I'm wondering if they are trying to convince somebody they are right... or if they are pleading their case to God... just in case?
What, you wanted some sappy "I missed you and can't live without you" speech? Sorry you soft little bitches.
OK, I missed you guys a little
