  • Not likely, but some of your more devout neighbours might choose to attempt it. AntigoneRising: Not only humorous, but very astute. Joe: Thanks, we are one. lady fuschia: This'd be funny if it wasn't so true! Joe: M'Lady is as clever as she is smart. TheWormSAF: Your neighbors will pray for you, and if we think we can punish you, we'll be punished the same as anyone who doesn't repent. No need for snide remarks. Joe: I'm not being snide at all. Are you not trying to admonish me now? Godfather Part II: Great answer! Joe: Thanks, and I'm not even an atheist. free4life79: If you die without excepting Jesus you will go to hell and you obviously believe in God or you would not have asked! Joe: Now that is an interesting paradigm. If s/he is an atheist, how can s/he beleive in God? for that matter, how can anyone go to hell without believing in God or Hell in the first place? Now I am REALLY feeling admonished...(I'm such a sinner...) PhilDoc: Just as funny as the question. Joe: Some of the most surprising revelations (?? not the book, OK. That is another thread.) come from the simplist of questions. canned_dice: -comments just to get on the answer- Heh, I'm sorry... I just had to do that x.x Joe: We all have a vice or two. Give me points and you can stay here.
  • Its best to be a quite atheist.
  • If you are asking if God will punish you for being an atheist, well then you are not really an atheist, because you are admitting belief that there is a God. But, the answer is yes. He will punish all who do not come to Him on His terms. Jesus. But yeah, you are not really an atheist, by admission through your question.
  • Its a silly question and does not deserve an answer!!!!! When I was young about 10 years old, in grade school we talked about ---- If god is so powerful can he creat a rock that he can not lift. So with that in mind. Can god being so powerful can she make herself disapear forever.
  • "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him." (John 3:36) *** all I did was answer the question with the right answer!
  • Romans 3:23 States "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." This verse tells us we are sinners me,you,and everyone who was born. And because we are sinners we will die Romans 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death". The book of Revelations says there is 2 deaths Revelations 20:14,15 "And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire.This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." But dear sir you do not have to be punished or go to hell as God sent us His Son to die for us. Romans 5:8 "But God commendeth his love toward us in that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us." 2 Corinthians 5:21" For He [God] hath made him [Jesus] to be sin for us [me,you, and everyone else], who knew no sin that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." This says he took our sins upon him that we might be made perfect in Gods eyes. Romans 10:9 says"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."Long story short we are punished for our sins not cause we are atheists and we go to hell because we reject Gods gift which is His Son dying on the cross. I pray that you do not have to be punished and that you will invite Christ into your heart and save you. Romans 10:13 "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Edit: The question was "Will God punish me for being an atheist?" :therefore the answer is what God says not whatI or anyone else thinks.
  • Not while you live in this life, no matter how many times you deny him or curse his name, he will still love you. We all have our sins, we all have our own problems. If none of us repent, we all will share a place in hell the same as an atheist. But know this, God respects those who know they have problems and will accept God's grace and forgiveness, much more than those who stand atop their soapbox and tout their religiousness while pointing down at you. I love you as brothers/sisters, and as much as you may denounce God, know that there will always be someone praying for you all.
  • Maybe you mean my neighbour Godfrey, as far as I'm aware he doesn't have any particular powers of chastisement and he hasn't attempted to punish me yet.
  • Y E S !!!
  • The Bible says that the wages of sin (ncluding disbelief) is death. check out this site for your own good. www.bennyhinn.org/salvation/salvation2.cfm
  • Yes. You will go to hell and be eternally tortured if you do not confess of your sins and accept God and Jesus.
  • If there is a god, then you should probably ask him/her/it. If there is not a god, then you will not be punished. However, in general, most atheists do not usually worry about being punished by god.
  • As an atheist, I do not worry about trivial matters like "will god punish me" because there is no god. It is a silly question. If there is a god, then I will be held accountable for not believing in him, but I will just say "you did not give me a mind that could handle belief in the unbelievable". I will take whatever punishment is due... knowing that I stood my ground and was honest with myself. If god does not like that answer, there is very little reason that I could ever like (let alone love) a god such as that.
  • Why obey a king ? because he knows whats good for you. God knows whats good for you, There is a way to a man which seems right. But this way leads to death. (proverbs 12:28) Men love to make themselves God, My way is the best, why because I know the truth, I came up with it in my head with natural truths. For sence in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know god, but it pleased god through the foolishness of the messege preached to save those who believe. (1corinthians 1:21) If I created something that turned its back on me and didnt give me praise as it was ment for, would I not let it walk away and fall into a ditch ? In this cenario, I am still the creator and your still the creation, I will finish my plan, with or without you, but hes merciful and gives us the option to come home, ahh and home is truly were the heart is. Its amazing to me how something so radiculous like jesus christ and the gospels has so much truth. Christ calls us to change our hearts, and when I look at this foolishness I believe in, it puts me in the right place of this scenario as god being my ruler, and me being nothing. I am nothing without him, but he has given me a new mission in life, to share his love, finish his good works, and to change peoples lives, not in my own knowledge, but with the power of god, because Im nothing, I cant do nothing. I love you guys, and I hope you find truth. Amen !
  • HAHA!!!!!! I get it...... f u n n y .
  • If people told you he would, would you change your mind about being atheist? I dont understand people who worship a God just because they are scared of him. In a weird way, it's quite like having an abusing partner. You'd stay with them because you dont knwo what else to do and because you dont want to be hurt. I think it's wrong and calling yourself an 'atheist' but then ask that question. If you really dont beleieve it, then you shouldn't believe in this non existant thing 'punishing' you.
  • If you were truly an atheist, you wouldn't ask that question, nor would you worry about it. If there is a Deity, you would have to specify which Deity and the nature of said Deity in order to get even close to an answer to that question.
  • There is nothing we can do or say to increase or diminish the love that God has for us.
  • Well if you're an atheist you don't believe in God, but if you are asking the question then... God won't punish you for being an ATHIEST but I guess he will *punish* (if that's the right word) you for not believing in him. The only way we can get to heaven is through Jesus Christ, and if you dn't belive in him then you won't go to heaven.
  • I’d think so, depending on what extent you take it to, but no one can say for sure. Not to pry, but if you are an atheist then why are you concerned with that.
  • No. God will not punish you just for being an atheist. Atheism is only one of many sins. We have all gone astray. That is why God had to send His son to die for our sins. There is nothing we can do to earn our way to heaven or hell. We were already under the Adamic curse of sin the minute we were born. The only way to get around it is to put your faith in Jesus Christ and what he did for us. God said in another place "As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, O house of Israel?" Renounce atheism and come to the true God, the one and only, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, God himself. He is calling upon your heart today. Do not wait another day. You never know what tomorrow can bring and He is obviously moving upon your heart today. :)
  • No. You will punish yourself enough for the both of you.
  • The first of the ten Bible's Commandments is "Thou shall not have any other Gods before me." Exd 20:3 He did not command to believe in him, but to not have any other gods before him.
  • I do not believe God will punish anybody. If more people started to realize that God is your Friend and not your Parent who is out to have power over you but is here to help you well what a wonderful world this would be.
  • Its not that god will punish you. He just wont save you if you dont believe in him
  • God will not of course punish you if you believe in God, as this is affirmed by the very question itself. HOWEVER, If you go against the ways of god, whether you accept him or not, there will be consequences of some type eventually. What a "punishment" means is in both the hands and in the eyes of god.
  • I hope not. I too am an Atheist, and so don't beleive in any kind of god (lowercase letter intenional). However if there is one I would imagine that it would respect my own decisions.
  • Yeah you'll burn
  • Look in the dictionary for the word 'contradiction'
  • THERE IS NO GOD, relax, be happy, do good. If it turns out there is a God he has one hell of an ego. Is heaven the hottest club in Manhattan?
  • Well, honestly yes you will be judged, but truthfully who won't be judged? Everybody is going to be judged by jesus no matter what religion they are.
  • It is quite nice seeing all these people believing God would punish someone for this. I believe it is stated somewhere in the Bible that it matters not what one religion is, and technically Atheism itself is a religion due to the fact it has a core belief. While there is no worship, no churches, and no central organization, the belief there is no god is equal in power to the belief there is a god. If there is a higher being, that being gave people Free Will. This means they can choose what to believe, and so long as a person does good deeds and works with the fullest of their heart to help others, that is what God cares about most. A person can be the most-loyal follower of God to the point of being an extremist, and atheist can be capable of doing more to please a god he or she may not even believe in whereas the extremist may end up being punished for incessant radicalism. Unfortunately, a lot of people can't see it like this.
  • Will God punish me for not believing he exists? If you don't believe in God, why does it matter. From this perspective, that's like saying, will Winnie the Pooh punish me if I don't watch his cartoons? I don't believe in Winnie the Pooh.
  • why you dont ask himself?
  • your not an atheist if you think God will punish you. *sigh* i think people like to do things other people are doing. Do you even know what an atheist is??
  • How do you know that god has an existence?
  • Would god be that mean? Would he punish you for being atheist? He writes the laws. He planned for you being born right? Why punish? By asking this you know there IS a god, you're breaking even.
  • If God punishes you you'll be in good company. Most of the worlds population isnt Christian. And good news - I'll be there!
  • Ok, this is just my opinion based on my faith, please no one get offended! If you are "atheist" because you never heard of god, then no, you would not be punished because you did not have the chance If you are athiest and know that god exists, or heard of god and dismissed it as a myth immediately after hearing of this, then yes, you would get punished.
  • Haha! This question HAS to be satire.
  • an atheist does not believe in god so you must not be an atheist.
  • if you believe there is a god your not an atheist!
  • If you dont belive when you die you will go to hell
  • No, because there is no god.
  • Good one, I get it.
  • If you dont believe in God, then why are you worried about the punishment that he can deal out. I believe that you will not be punished for this, because you never knew for a fact that there really was a God.
  • I don't think so...If God is perfect, he will understand that we are not as perfect as he is, so it is understandable for him to realize how ignorant we have been. That's in case you believe in a God that needs recognition. I don't think that's the case. The God I believe in doesn't have human imperfections.
  • if you are worried about God punishing you, then you are not an atheist. It is a shame that most people worry about God's punishment, when he WANTS to give you eternal life. That's why he sent Jesus: for God so loved the world that he sent his only son, so that whoever believes in him shall not die, but have eternal life. God is such a God of the positive; please don't think of him only as a heavenly schoolteacher with a big stick, waiting to catch you doing something wrong. He is a loving Father, waiting for his prodigal children to return. Of course, if they reject Him, they will be punished, but they bring the punishment on themselves by that rejection. Sending someone from his presence for ever is not something God enjoys. Why else would he be willing to sacrifice his only beloved son to get us back?
  • yes im afrad so you will go to hell if you do not beleve in Christ
  • Well i guess so.
  • If you are worried about what a god is going to do to you? I got news for you, babe, you aint no atheist! Otherwise I sense a troll, and damnit all, I came here to get away from those bastards!
  • Oh he sure will. He's obviously quite an egotistical, jealous, insecure individual (based on the OT account)...
  • God will respect your choice and will, with great sadness, leave you alone for all eternity in a place that is totally cut off from him. And no, I don't mean New Jersey.
  • Apparently that's the plan for you and I... haha! I'm driving the bus to hell, want me to stop by and pick you up?
  • there is no god to punish you. dont fret it
  • If you're an atheist, I'm getting that you want to know if Christians and Muslims believe their God will punish you for not believing in Him. The answer is: they do. If they take their scriptures literally they believe that anyone who doesn't agree with them on matters of theology is damned to an eternity of agonizing torture with no reprieve. They simultaneously believe that this God that metes out this infinite punishment for finite crimes is perfectly just and perfectly merciful. If they're right and you convert to their religion (better pick the right one!), you can save yourself from hell and all it will cost you is your ability to understand that it is unmerciful and unjust to consign anyone to unending and unbearable pain.
  • If you're an atheist, you woudn't bother asking.
  • Yes just as soon as he leaves Oz on his flying monkey.
  • Not before your fellow man does!
  • If you think there is a God who might punish you for being an atheist, then you are not an atheist!
  • My belief is no. If you lead a good life: a life of loving and compassion I don’t see why God would be angry at you. After all in spite of you not believing in him, you still would have followed the most basic rule: to be kind to your fellow human.
  • According to the bible you will be cast into the lake of fire.
  • There is no god to punish you. The only thing that does that is your memories after the ego is gone.
  • He's gonna kick your ass for being just like him...
  • LOL its hilarious how many people on this site have no sense of humour. as soon as you mention the G-word they start throwing out bible quotes!
  • atheist don't believe in God, your really confused
  • What an idiotic question. If you believe there are no gods what difference can it possibly make?
  • Sweet paradox question bro, you win an internets (I'm gonna need some change back tho)
  • There is only one penalty for sin and that is DEATH. Everlasting life is granted through Jesus Christ.
  • No he will accept your skepticism, as loyalty.
  • you will have to ask Him.
  • If your concerned about what the heavenly father thinks about you, you arent an atheist.
  • Nobody can answer that. Only God can tell you that.
  • Actually, he will put you in a position of power.
  • No, you are punishing yourself. You're punishment is death. To believe in god is to believe in eternal life. So how can you have what you don't believe in? Even here in this world, you only get what you believe in? It's your choice here. You can believe in yourself having a successful life and achieving your dreams and then work hard and make it happen. People who don't believe they can, don't ever try and have a crappy life. It's called faith. Faith is what gives you the power to carry on, even when it seems fruitless.
  • no... because if you are an atheist that believes in god, you aren't really an atheist.
  • All who reject Jesus Christ will be punished at the appointed time.
  • Ultimately you are punishing yourself.
  • if your atheist god doesn't exist
  • "All forgiving", correct? ;-)
  • I'm sort of surprised that a question like this was even asked in this section.
  • I dont think there is a 'right' or 'wrong' way to do things... I think all belief systems hold some truth and relevant guidance to them... But if you're an atheist aren't you not supposed to believe in a god? O__o PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong I mean no disrespect.
  • if, if there is a God then we are told he/she is all loving and why a loving God would punish you for not believing is beyond me. Its certainly not an ego thing. The way I see it as long as you are a good person why punish you, believe or not.
  • Why do you care? If you dont believe in God , then it shouldnt really matter to you.Should it? If your asking about a religious persons POV then yes; as i have been taught atheists go to hell; its the one sin that cannnot be forgiven. But like i said if you dont believe in God, then who cares?
  • No because you obviously aren't an atheist.
  • If you're an atheist, there is no God to punish you, so why do you care?
  • You must obviously have a concern about this or you would not ask the question. I happen to believe we will all bow before God someday both you and I. I believe because I have accepted Jesus as my Lord and saviour I will be spared any punishment. What you feel you must or desire to believe then is up to you. God, through Jesus, has offered you the free gift of eternal life. All you need is to sincerely accept this free gift. I can not force you to do so and neither can God; it is a choice YOU must make. If you would like more information and to know fully what I have said please email me...my email is in my AB profile. I am a Liberated Christian, not Mormon, not Jehovas Witness, and Not Catholic.
  • Well, this doesn't really make sense. If you are nd Athehist, like me, you do not there is a god, so he cannot punish you. Either you believe in him or not...
  • If you are an atheist, what the hell do you care what God will do. You don't even believe there is a God!
  • A just God would not punish you for not knowing He exists, IMHO.
  • No more than Santa Claus will stop bringing you Xmas presents if you just go to church. But the Easter Bunny is a real bastard and will hide rotten eggs on you.
  • we should not be controlled by what the bible says. We should be controlled by what we think. Think about the meanest thing you said to someone. Now think about what you felt and what they felt. Do you or any God have the right to make someone feel like that for eternity. When we die we will all be one with each other.
  • If you're worried about that, it sounds like you're not an atheist
  • If he existed he might be upset - but if you don't believe then it doesn't matter - because he's not there.
  • What your asking is, if I am an atheist and it turns out that God really does exist will I get punished? No, I was an atheist when I met God, all he/she did was wrap me in unconditional love peace and bliss. God doesn't care what you believe, though he/she would rather that you not hurt anyone while your here. But even if you do, God will still love you.
  • If you do not believe there is a God, why are you concerned about him punishing you?
  • You're obviously not an Atheist if this is concerning you.
  • no and u can see the weak faith bullshit these fags put on like well, atheiest dont worry about being punished by god. dumb shit drshems i hope u get impaled on a spike
