I often receive notes from atheists declaring how evil they think the God of the Bible is.
If there is no objective morality (any real, universal right and wrong) then all the continued talk of morality to me, as if you were trying to persuade me of something, is utterly irrelevant... it is just a personal preference like cooked eggs rather than raw. Why waste your time so passionately trying to persuade me of something so banal as how you like your eggs cooked? I don't care. Your moral declarations of how evil the God of the Bible is carries about the same weight with others as your preference for cooked eggs. If there is no truth to right and wrong then speaking with passion to others about it is absurd. Honesty and dishonesty, doing evil and doing good are all equally consistent with an atheistic worldview, and therefore, equally meaningless.
But humans are irresistibly drawn like gravity to be moral beings. We can't help it and know deep down there is a moral Lawgiver because God has written it in our conscience. Each time you tell others that they are following evil and therefore obligated to obey your morality you reveal your true colors: that you affirm objective morals - morals that are true for you and me regardless of personal opinions. That you believe your morals are better than others... and to be better you need some standard outside yourself to measure it by. Every time you make moral declarations about the evil in the Bible to me, you are not just telling me a personal opinion but want to persuade me... obviously you think you are right. And right means there is a wrong - for everyone ... in reality not just like which flavor of ice cream you like -- for you would never spend time here trying to convince me how vanilla is better than strawberry ice cream .... since that IS a subjective preference.
