Atheist or not?

Written by: Ray Comfort

What’s funny to me is that the religious people get on a social networking site developed by an atheist (Mark Zuckerberg and FaceBook), using operating systems created by an atheist (Apple’s Steve Jobs, Microsoft’s Bill Gates…and talk about how atheists are damned, doomed to hell and the world is better off without them.
– Travis RushI have never heard any Christian saying that the world would be better off without these people. What’s funny to me is that atheists walk around on God’s fair earth, breathing His fresh air, drinking His life-giving water, eating the food He created, and continually biting the gracious Hand that feeds them. Those who do so are not using the incredible brain He gave them.

You will find Bill Gates listed on “Celebrity Atheists” [1] and on many other atheist sites. He is even held up as proof that atheists are generous philanthropists. But in an article titled “Bill Gates interview: I have no use for money. This is God’s work,” The Telegraph reported, “It’s not going to stop us succeeding.
It does force us to sit down with the Pakistan government to renew their commitments, see what they’re going to do in security and make changes to protect the women who are doing God’s work and getting out to these children and delivering the vaccine.

”Billionaire, Bill Gates, is not an atheist.

You will also find Steve Jobs listed on “Celebrity Atheists,”[4] and heralded as “A brilliant atheist” on atheist blogs [5], and many other atheist sites. But just after his tragic death in October, 2011, National Public Radio said, “Jobs told Isaacson [his biographer] that he was ‘50/50’ on the existence of God, and that he wasn’t sure whether there was an afterlife.

Steve Jobs was not an atheist.
