An Open Letter to Atheists

Dear Atheists:

Thank you so much for your billboard! You're absolutely correct in asking people to "imagine no religion!"

Religion has completely skewed the Word of God (whose Name is YHWH = Yahweh) which is contained in the Holy Bible. "Religion" has completely detracted from YHWH's message and resulted in the creation of the various world "religions" and "denominations"!

The atheists who applaud the above billboard apparently have not one iota of a clue as to what John Lennon's song "Imagine" actually refers to! His song is not anti-faith, but anti-RELIGION and anti-humanistic "stuff" as he understood it in the west! Notice this song is also anti-war and anti-possessions...the selfish, me-oriented ideology that dominates the world today....

Imagine there's no Heaven, It's easy if you try
No hell below us, Above us only sky
Imagine all the people, Living for today

Imagine there's no countries, It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for, And no religion too
Imagine all the people, Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us, And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger, A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people, Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us, And the world will live as one.

Yes, that can be thought of as socialism, but it also is apocalyptic. The idea of a reordering of society where fairness reigns, where the rich help the poor, where wars cease...this can all be attributed to a Messianic age. The problem isn't the sentiment or expression; rather, "Imagine" laments the fact that there's NO MECHANISM TO ACHIEVE this. John was searching for some of the right things; he just didn't know where they could be found - which is in YHWH's Torah!

Now, just for kicks, let's examine the definition of religion:

The mindsets of those who applaud the above billboard were established by gnosticism, atheism and evolution. They don't realize that, without God's Torah, there is no blueprint, no "moral code" for proper living! Without Torah, where is the measuring stick that decides how humans should conduct their affairs? Survival of the fittest? More money? More humanism, relativism and tolerance with man as the measure of all things? These intellects act like Bozo the Clown when you attempt to talk with them about a charter for human rights, liberty and protection of property; they have no resources to invest in the common good.

They are not even honest enough to admit that their religion is putting up billboards and looking for other people who will subscribe to their rebellion....

Yeshua didn't bring us "religion." He brought us TRUTH! So, halleluyah and thank you for allowing God's message to be revealed through you, the atheists of the world!
