It's not a question of what they will lose or gain. It is their belief and their opinion. If they don't believe in God and you can't prove it to them, then they are not going to accept God. And to them they are not losing or gaining anything.
I don't know i'm Christian so i might be a little biased but the way i see it if you don't accept him your taking the chance that he may exist and that you wont get into heaven. If you accept him and then you die and enter the kingdom of heaven you win and if he's not real then there would be nothing after death and you wont be around to be disappointed anyway. If you accept him you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. However, everyone is entitled to their own religious beliefs (or lack there of).
Nothing To lose and Everything To Gain. This Life is like a Vapor. Here Today Gone Tomorrow. Eternity Is Forever. So Which Is Better Give Up This Short Life On Earth Are Give Up Eternity With God For Ever. Choose Wisely.
Salvation from the power, guilt, and condemnation of sin , is a present blessing; but salvation from all the righteous consequences of sin - is a future blessing. There is no condemnation now - there will be no wrath at the end of our course. If we are now justified - then full salvation at death is certain. Hence we read, "Since we have now been justified by His blood , how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through Him!" Romans 5:9 "We shall be saved from God's wrath through Him." The only way of escape, is Jesus! He endured the wrath of God for penitent sinners. He delivers every sinner from Hell, who comes to Him by faith. He will take care that wrath shall not come near any soul that shelters in Him.
By accepting that there has got to be a higher being - you have more to gain then to loose. In your quest to seeking out the truth about God - will open the door for him to respond to your prayers (Matthew 6:33)
Also - while we still have the time,seek him out and draw close to him (James 4:8) While the window of opportunity is here - take advantage of it. Examine and ponder on the scriptures and pray for guidance in forming a relationship with Almighty God (Psalms 83:18)
You only have positive blessings in store for you in the future and you will no longer be blind to the events that are taking place today, (Matthew 24:6-14)
Well they are actually loosing a lot.. And they refuse to accept Jesus because well cuz they wanna live the way they wanna live.. Being Christian means live for Christ, and be Christlike that means loving everyone and forgiving ppl who do us wrong..
Self respect. By accepting god I am indirectly condoning slavery and murder of children. I am at war with this monster- if it exists at all. So I would be forfeiting my cause which is a noble one. God would commit the same crimes tomorrow that it did yesterday and we know that and still defend its actions as if it wasn't wrong. No one writes morality and trying to superimpose a code over the truth in wrong. As atheist, I would lose my sense of justice. There is no proof god exists so I would be losing my rationality, logic and reason. I would lose every method of by which I discern the truth. I would lose my freedom as becoming a servant of this foreign idol would constitute treason against my liberty. I would lose my will to live because my happiness would be secondary to something malevolent. I would lose my happiness because all of the things I mention above give me permission to always be happy and I would lose them. So I would lose everything worth having. In short, I'd rather die than accept god.
Their foolishness and sin that's what they'll loose period.=====================================The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. (Psalms 14:1 KJV)
Nothing to lose all to gain, Like peace in your heart, Love for others you never had before, Gods Spirit opening His Word to you, An Awesome Never ending Love for your Savior Jesus Christ. Good Advice Amen
I would be allowing myself to be beholden to an imaginary entity that promotes violence, is egotistical, condemns innocent people to a life time of pain, refuses to recognize or reward goodness unless you bow down to him and discourages rational thought.
I will never again feel comfortable pretending lies are true. I would lose my feeling of rationality. I used to believe, so going back to that would be like forced amnesia. Nobody wants forced amnesia.
