    Default How God Messed Up My Happy Atheist Life

    I became a Christian on July 7, 2015, after a very pleasant adult life of firm atheism. I’ve found myself telling “the story” when people ask me about it—slightly tweaked for my audience, of course. When talking to non-theists, I do a lot of shrugging and “Crazy, right? Nothing has changed, though!” When talking to other Christians, it’s more, “Obviously it’s been very beautiful, and I am utterly changed by it.” But the story has gotten a little away from me in the telling...

    All I got from that was this: " but I found the idea of life ending after death mildly reassuring in its finality."

    See, I maintain there has to come an end to everything, including life.
    I cannot imagine the burden of living forever.

    Personally, I am in love with life! And I cannot imagine the mind blowing experience it will be to experience eternal life without the burden of sin, disease and sorrow.

    Remember that time when you slipped & fell?
    That was really me in the future, in heaven, & invisible coming back to the past & tripping you.
