The Atheist Delusion Movie (2016) HD

♪♪♪ That religion is just
absolutely uncalled for. We are just mere things
floating on a rock in space. (Neil deGrasse Tyson)
We are not only figuratively,
but literally stardust. You don’t have to go
to church on Christmas, and it is about being good, and that’s what all religions
are about anyway. (Ray Comfort)
Are you an atheist? Yeah. – Gonna kill yourself?
– Yeah, I’d like to. – So, you’re an atheist?
– Yes. I need to know
what to believe in. (Stephen Colbert)
Like, what happens
when you die? Yes, I don’t want to be
a bag of dust. ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ (Ray Comfort)
David, are you an atheist? Yes. (Ray Comfort)
When did you become
an atheist? Around age 12. Believing in God
makes no sense. To me, it’s the dumbest thing. It’s for people who can’t accept
the fact that they’re going to die and rot in the ground
like I’m going to do, and it gives them some relief
from that thought, because that’s not the nicest
thought in the world. (Ray Comfort)
Are you an atheist? Yes. – Yes, I am.
– Yes. – Yes.
– Yes, sir. – Are you an atheist?
– I am. – Yeah, I’m an atheist.
– Yes, I am. (Ray Comfort)
Alex, do you believe
in God’s existence? No, I do not. (Ray Comfort)
How long have
you been an atheist? I would say probably
since I was about 15 years old. (Ray Comfort)
So, you don’t believe
in the existence of God? No, not really. (Ray Comfort)
What happened
when you were 15? I started questioning things,
and I really just started to think about the logic
behind everything. For the most part,
we are not shown the evidence for there being
a higher power. If we were, I almost guarantee
that almost every atheist would immediately agree
to there being a higher power. (Ray Comfort)
Are you atheists? – Yes.
– Yes. (Ray Comfort)
Why? Well, I just haven’t seen
enough evidence I suppose. I grew up
in a Christian family and, just over the few years
during high school and as I grew up, I just realized that there
wasn’t a lot of evidence to support that belief system. (Ray Comfort)
Are you open to evidence? I think I am
open to evidence. It just would have to be
extraordinarily compelling, like out of this world
compelling. (Ray Comfort)
If you could be given evidence,
reasonable evidence, would you listen to it? Yeah, I would. (Ray Comfort)
You’re someone who has
no faith or no belief in a higher power or a creator,
but if you were shown evidence, you would change your mind,
because you’re open. Absolutely. (Ray Comfort)
Flick through the pages
of the book I just put on your lap. Look at the color pictures
and I’ll ask you a question. Do you believe that book
could happen by accident? That nothing produced
the color pictures in the book? That red, orange,
yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet ink
fell from the sky and formed itself
into those beautiful pictures, and then black ink fell
from the sky, or from nowhere, and formed itself
into coherent words, and sentences, capitals,
and periods, and commas,
making sense? Page numbers fell from the sky,
all in order, and then it bound itself
and formed itself into a cover without work? And there we have a book. Obviously, intelligent
design designed the book. – Wouldn’t that be correct?
– Yeah. (Ray Comfort)
Can you see
where I’m going with this? Yeah. (Ray Comfort)
Tell me, what is DNA? (female)
What is it,
Deoxyribonucleic acid? And it’s what makes up
our bodies, and our cells, and everything
that makes us who we are. DNA is like
our biological code, kind of like
binary zeros and ones. Information about us,
who we are, what makes us us, parts of us, how we look,
how we’re built, everything like that. (Ray Comfort)
Your genes instructed your
cells how to make your eyes, and what color your eyes
should be and your hair and your height
and your personality. Scientists call it
the instruction book for life. Basically. (Joe Hanson)
Everything that you are
or ever will be made of starts as a tiny book
of instructions found in each and every cell. Every time your body
wants to make something, it goes back
to the instruction book, looks it up,
and puts it together. The book of you
would have 46 chapters, 1 for each chromosome. Each of our books’ 46 chapters is between 48 and 250 million
letters long. That’s 3.2 billion
letters total. This is the secret
language of DNA. This is the book of life. – Instruction book for life.
– Yes. – Instruction book for life.
– Yes. (Ray Comfort)
DNA is made up of genes,
and genes give instructions to the cells as to how
your body should grow. Did you know
that if those instructions, the instruction book
of your DNA, just your DNA, was laid out end for end, it would go to the sun and back
a number of times. That book of instructions
is so comprehensive. DNA is the genetic information
encoded in the cell of every living thing
that instructs our cells how to grow
and how to function. It’s our genes
that determine whether our skin
will be dark or light; have brown or blue eyes,
or red, or green, or yellow; have red hair,
be brunette, or blonde; be tall or not so tall; or the color of our feathers
if we’re a bird. Whether we’re humans, fish,
animals, insects, or plant life, the way our bodies look and
operate has all been pre-written in the amazing book of our DNA. (Ray Comfort)
What do you think
of the mentality of someone who believes a book fell
together without a book maker? Well, they would be crazy. (Ray Comfort)
Do you think a book
could make itself? No, I don’t. Of course not. No. – Utterly impossible.
– Yes. Anything could happen
by accident. (Ray Comfort)
I mean, from nothing. Um, wow. – Couldn’t happen, could it?
– I don’t think so. (Ray Comfort)
That’d be impossible. It would be like saying
an explosion caused everything that makes a 747 airplane to all just come together
by accident without some intelligent
thought behind it. (Ray Comfort)
That’s a good point. (Ray Comfort)
Do you believe DNA
happened by accident? No, I think that it developed
over the course of many, many millennia
of evolution and development. (Ray Comfort)
DNA exists
in every living thing. Its origins don’t matter. The fact that there is
intelligent information tells us there must be
an intelligent designer. Is this making you think? It is, and I do think about it
from time to time. It’s just–yeah,
it’s complicated, definitely. (Ray Comfort)
Well, DNA’s complicated, but the point I’m trying to make
is very simple. Book, book designer
or book maker. DNA, intelligent designer, God. – Does that make sense?
– Yes. – Are you an atheist?
– I am. (Ray Comfort)
What would you think
of the mentality of someone who thought a physical book
could make itself? I think they’d be silly. Of course it can’t make itself. (Ray Comfort)
What would you think
of the mentality of someone who believed
the instruction book for life, DNA,
made itself? Well, I think
it’d be silly as well. It would need investigation. (Ray Comfort)
That’s atheism. Absolutely. (Ray Comfort)
And what would you think
of the intelligence of someone who believed the instruction
book for life made itself? Low.
Low intelligence level. DNA happened by accident? Probably not too smart. (Ray Comfort)
DNA couldn’t make itself.
It’s impossible. – Does that make sense?
– Yes. – Is this making you think?
– Yes. (Ray Comfort)
And what would think of the
person who believed that DNA, the instruction book for life,
happened by accident? ‘Cause we’re not just
talking about human beings, we’re talking about
every form of life: fleas, cats, dogs, elephants,
cows, horses, trees, plants. Everything has DNA,
the instruction book for life, which makes the book
in your hand just seem feeble compared to
the infinite intelligence that must have put the instruction
book for life together. Can you see what I’m saying? Yeah. (Ray Comfort)
Do you believe DNA
happened by accident? I believe it could. (Ray Comfort)
Explain it to me,
how a program could make itself out of nothing on how to make
a human eye, giraffe’s eyes, elephant’s eyes, cats, dogs,
puppies, flowers, birds, trees. Every living thing has
DNA that’s so complex, it’s mind-boggling. There must have been a genius
beyond any human reasoning that put it together. And to say it happened by chance
is infinitely sillier than saying a physical book
happened by chance. All I’m doing
is reasoning with you. I’m not–I don’t want
to win an argument. I’m just saying I want you
to concede something that’s absolutely common sense. You’re an atheist,
so you believe the scientific impossibility
that nothing created everything? I mean,
it can’t be nothing. We all have to start
from some point. I wouldn’t say
nothing created it. There had to be something
there in the beginning. (Ray Comfort)
You like Richard Dawkins,
don’t you? Well, I mean, you know,
yeah, I like him. (Ray Comfort)
Do you believe nothing
created everything, a scientific impossibility,
which is what he believes? (Ray Comfort)
You don’t believe
in a creator of all things? If he says that, I think it’s
a very strange thing to say. (Ray Comfort)
Well, he says it. It’s insane. Nothing can create anything,
’cause it’s nothing. There has to be something
in the beginning. Nowhere in our history
of human reality has something kind of just
appeared out of nowhere. (Ray Comfort)
Do you believe that
nothing created everything? No, because nothing
can’t perform actions. That makes no sense. (Ray Comfort)
It’s a default position. If you’re saying
nothing created everything, then you’re agreeing
with Richard Dawkins. You’re mischaracterizing
Richard Dawkins, because Richard Dawkins,
I’m sure he didn’t say that. That seems ridiculous. (Ray Comfort)
Professor Richard Dawkins,
arguably the world’s most high-profile atheist,
believes that in the beginning there was nothing, and that
nothing created everything. As he attempts
to justify this belief, admitting that it
defies common sense, the learned professor
calls nothing something. Watch the reaction
of his audience. Of course it’s
counter-intuitive that you can get
something from nothing. Of course common sense
doesn’t allow you to get something
from nothing. That’s why it’s interesting. It’s got to be interesting
in order to give rise to the universe at all. Something pretty mysterious
had to give rise to the origin
of the universe. But exactly what’s meant
by nothing, but whatever it is,
it’s very, very simple. [audience laughing] (Richard Dawkins)
Why is that funny? (George Pell)
Well, I think it’s a bit funny
to be trying to define nothing. Richard Dawkins,
I’m sure he didn’t say that. That seems ridiculous. (Ray Comfort)
The audience reaction
confused the normally eloquent professor
because he’s not used to being the object of laughter. What he didn’t realize
was he was talking to people who were endowed
by their Creator with a virtue of common sense. This was just another case where
the emperor has no clothes. Someone should tell this man
who has deceived millions, “You’re talking foolishness.” (Ray Comfort)
Is that what you believe? I mean, it can’t be nothing. We all have to start
from some point. (Ray Comfort)
But there has to be something
that created everything. It just wasn’t God. Is that what you’re saying? Yeah. It’s just evolution, how things became
from one organism into many. (Ray Comfort)
But that doesn’t solve your
dilemma of the initial cause. There has to be initial cause. If there was a big bang
in space that, from there issued cats and dogs
and horses and cows, the sun, the moon,
the stars, the seasons, and all this marvel of creation
came from a big explosion, what caused the explosion, and where did the materials
come from for the explosion, and why is there such incredible
order from the explosion? Every explosion I’ve heard of
creates chaos, not order. That make sense? Well, yeah. (Ray Comfort)
This is what
you’re looking for. If you were looking for truth,
this is your information that you need to say,
“Whoa, that’s logical. How could all this design
from the atom to the universe and incredible order
just happen by accident?” ‘Cause an atheist
actually believes nothing created everything, which is scientifically
impossible. I’m trying to say, “Hayley,
I just want you to think.” You’re not just
a blob of nothing that came from an explosion which created order,
which is against nature. That means that you’ve got
purpose and meaning in the universe,
so it’s not altogether bad news. I just want a relationship
with whoever built me. This is too much, too weird
that it happened by accident. It didn’t happen by accident.
I don’t feel it did. (Ray Comfort)
In June of 2016, I interviewed
theoretical physicist Professor Lawrence Krauss
and asked him the same questions I asked
the university students. I was limited to only
asking questions, but he was very gracious
and it was an honor to meet him. Lawrence,
why are you an atheist? Well, you know, I don’t
call myself an atheist any more than I call
myself an a-leprechaunist. In fact, I don’t label
myself as -ist. The only -ist I might use
is a scientist, and that’s really
important to me, because as a scientist, I don’t accept things
without evidence, and there’s certainly
no evidence for God. And all the stories
about the different gods, as there have been
thousands of them, all seem equally ridiculous. There’s millions. Yeah, probably
at least millions. Are you open to evidence? I’m absolutely
open to evidence. In fact, I change my mind
all the time. That’s the great thing
about being a scientist. Unlike religion, we don’t assume
we have all the answers. In fact,
we ask the questions and we let nature
tell us the answers. I notice you picked up
this book before. Do you believe this book
could make itself? Let me give you
this scenario. That ink
fell on the pages? Colored photos just manifest
when ink fell out of nowhere? The sentences became coherent
with periods and commas? No, but–which is
one of the reasons why the way that the Bible
was written by humans, ’cause it didn’t make itself. There was some bunch of largely
literate Iron Age peasants who were trying
to understand the world, and didn’t know much
about science, and they wrote,
in different forms, books. Okay, so
the fourth question– Could a book arise
spontaneously from nothing? Absolutely. But could it make itself?
No. There’s two very
different things. Because you’re implying
design, intent, et cetera, which is what,
of course, you do. DNA is called
the book of life. Could DNA make itself? Well, see, that’s where
the question is ridiculous, because in fact, DNA doesn’t make itself any more
than a snowflake makes itself. A snowflake
is a beautiful, beautiful thing and it’s assembled
by nature. It doesn’t
make itself. It’s the laws of physics
and chemistry, polar molecules, that make this incredibly
complex, beautiful structure. Now, the same thing
with DNA. DNA is an amazing structure
and the laws of physics, chemistry,
and ultimately biology, which derives from that,
will, in principle, explain how DNA first arose. You give me
the laws of polar molecules and I’ll give you
a snowflake. There’s no intent,
no grand purpose, no design behind it,
even though they look designed. The illusion of design
is an illusion. (Ray Comfort)
Natural law
does indeed produce complex structures
like snowflakes, but the law that produces
that kind of complexity is simply the same
chemical reaction repeating over and over. That is not information. What’s stored
in the DNA molecule is specified information like the information found
in a book or a computer program. The fact that a book
requires an author and a program requires
a programmer is not an illusion. It is factual, as seen
in the real world around us. It isn’t apparent design,
it is real design, as any college student
can tell you. (Ray Comfort)
Do you believe
the instruction book for life happened by chance? No. (Ray Comfort)
So, it couldn’t happen
by chance, could it? No. (Ray Comfort)
So, where did
the intelligent information to selectively arrange the building blocks
of DNA come from? That know-how and forethought
does not exist in any of the materials
from which life is made, and the laws of nature
have no purpose for capacity to write a book
or arrange its pages. So, where did that specified
information come from? Its origin is certainly
supernatural. What Professor Krauss
completely overlooks is the external nature
of the information encoded into the DNA molecule, a complete set
of software instructions directing the formation and
reproduction of human beings, both male and female,
and all other living things. Bill Gates once said, “DNA is like a computer
software program, but far, far more advanced
than any software ever created.” (Ray Comfort)
Which came first,
the chicken or the egg? I’d have to say the chicken. – The chicken.
– What do you think? – The chicken.
– Chicken. – Chicken?
– Chicken. – And what about you?
– The egg. (Ray Comfort)
Egg, okay. – Was the egg fertilized?
– You got me. You got me there.
There ain’t no way. Maybe God
created the chicken, so then that’s how
the egg came. But you got me,
I don’t know. I didn’t think
that far into it I guess. Maybe most likely the chicken,
I would say. (Ray Comfort)
So, if the chicken came first,
it then laid an egg, okay? Was the egg fertilized? Hmm. Don’t know. – The egg.
– The egg? Yes. (Ray Comfort)
This chicken
that produced the first egg, was the egg fertilized? It would have to be. (Ray Comfort)
So, there’s a rooster? So, there was a rooster. (Ray Comfort)
So, there’s a rooster
and a chicken. Where did they come from? They all came from the stars. (Charlie Rose)
You said, “I am,
we are, stardust.” – Yes.
– What does that mean? For me, the most astonishing
fact is that the molecules that comprise our body
are traceable– are traceable to the crucibles
of the centers of stars. And we are not only
figuratively but literally stardust. (Ray Comfort)
Okay, so where
did you come from? I came from the stars. (Ray Comfort)
No, no, you came
from your parents. Ha ha, obviously I did, yeah. (Ray Comfort)
Where did they come from? They come from their parents? – And where did they come from?
– From their parents. (Ray Comfort)
Right back to Adam. Correct. (Ray Comfort)
And Adam was created by God,
and He made male and female, and He made the birds of the air
and made them male and female so they could reproduces
after their own kind. Okay, explain this to me if you really believe
in evolution. Before it had eyes,
how did it see? ‘Cause the eyes
have to evolve, ’cause the thing’s evolving
from stardust. Correct.
So, they probably didn’t see. – They felt.
– Felt? (Ray Comfort)
Did it have a brain? Or it couldn’t have a brain
until a brain evolved. So, how did it think
to look for food? And where did
the food come from? And why did the food evolve?
And did they have lungs? Do you think
the chicken thing, before it evolved into chicken,
had lungs? I’m not too sure. It’s all about
survival instinct, so, you know. (Ray Comfort)
It’s not going to survive
if it didn’t have lungs. And if it breathed air, was the
air 20% oxygen as it is now? And why did the air evolve?
And why did it evolve lungs? And how did it survive
before it had lungs and see before it had eyes
and think before it had a brain and eat before it had
an appetite? Doesn’t really make sense
when you think about it, ’cause you go to translate that to elephants, horses,
cats, cows, human beings. Every living thing
apparently evolved from stars had to evolve eyes and ears
and a mouth and a nose and lungs and heart
and kidneys. Let’s go back to something
more simple regarding that first chicken
that came from the stars. Which came first in the chicken:
was it its blood or its heart or its blood vessels? Which evolved first? I do not know that answer. (Ray Comfort)
Well, if it was the heart, why did the heart evolve
when there was no blood? If it was the blood,
why did the blood evolve when there was no heart
to pump it around? If there were
no blood vessels, how did the blood get around
the body of the chicken to keep it alive if there was
no heart to pump it? (male)
I’ve always had the doubts. It’s like,
we’ve been here for how long and we still haven’t evolved, or what are we
going to evolve into? (Ray Comfort)
Can you think of anyone
that isn’t fully evolved, anything on earth? Dogs have four legs. They have a tongue
and eyes and ears. Everything’s fully evolved. People have–they don’t
have a half-evolved leg. You don’t see someone
with a semi-evolved leg or half an ear or half a nose,
half an eye, half teeth? Everything’s fully evolved,
’cause the Bible says when God created all things,
it was finished. So, everything’s finished. The fruits, the flowers,
the birds, the trees, the nuts, the giraffes,
horses, cats, cows, everything is fully finished. And what it does
is disproves evolution and establishes the Bible in saying that God
created everything fully finished
with the ability to reproduce after their own kind
as male and female. [singing in foreign language] ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ (Ray Comfort)
Do you think God exists? A designer? I’m open to the idea, of course. (Ray Comfort)
Do you trust your eyes? To an extent, yes. (Ray Comfort)
Is there such a thing
as a sunrise? No, it’s an illusion. We move and thus giving
the illusion that the sun moves. (Ray Comfort)
So, there’s no sunrise,
no sunset. Don’t trust your own heart,
because your heart– your eyes will tell you there’s water on the highway
on a hot day. You’ll see it shimmering.
Well, do you stop? Do you wash and clean your teeth
or have a drink? It’s not even there.
Your eyes are lying to you. Any sleight of hand magician
will say don’t trust your eyes. And the Bible says, “He who trusts
his heart is a fool.” (Ray Comfort)
Do you believe
in God’s existence? In a sense, I guess. (Ray Comfort)
What sort of sense? I would say that there’s
some kind of governing unity that binds humanity and such,
but I don’t think of, I guess, a divine leader
or something like that. God itself can’t be described
as a person or a being. It’s more of a all-encompassing
energy if you will. – Like an energy drink?
– Yes, absolutely. (Ray Comfort)
You are a moral being.
You’re not like a dog or a cat. You care about
justice and truth. That’s why you’re upset
about little kids getting killed and molested, because you’re made
in God’s image. If you were a dog,
you couldn’t care less, but you’re created
in God’s image with a knowledge
of right and wrong. (Ray Comfort)
The reason most people
aren’t Christians is because of what’s
called idolatry. They’ve got a wrong concept
of what God is. Take Richard Dawkins.
Have you heard of him? Of course, yes. (Ray Comfort)
Richard Dawkins
is not an atheist, he’s an idolater. What an idolater normally does
is pick out the– like, treat God like a buffet. When you go to a buffet,
you take the nice things, the sweet things that you like. Well, an idolater
normally says God is merciful, love,
and kind, and they just create a false God
with no sense of justice. Richard Dawkins,
instead of doing that, he goes through
the Old Testament and takes the judgments of God,
the wrath of God, and he creates a monster with no sense
of mercy or justice. Richard,
in your books, you’ve been pretty scathing about the God
of the Old Testament. Let me just quote you, if I may. “The most unpleasant
character in all fiction. Misogynistic, homophobic,
racist, genocidal, megalomaniacal,
sadomasochistic,” and you go on. To argue for intelligent design
is one thing. To use it as evidence of the truth of Christianity
is another. (Ray Comfort)
Have I given you something
to think about today? I would say you have. It doesn’t change my viewpoint. (Ray Comfort)
This has given you
something to think about. But I don’t believe in God
or the Bible. (Ray Comfort)
Do you now believe in God? No. (Ray Comfort)
So, you’re still an atheist. You still think
the book made itself. (Ray Comfort)
Are you now no longer
an atheist? Yeah, I still am. (Ray Comfort)
You’re holding on to,
“The book made itself”? Why would you do that? (Ray Comfort)
Are you no longer an atheist? I would still go
as an atheist. (Ray Comfort)
You know in your heart
God’s exists. I know you know
for many reasons. One was, unlike you,
I was running from God too. And two, the Bible says God
has given light to every man, and when you put that light out,
when you dull that conscience and your inner knowledge
of God’s existence, Jesus said, “When that light is put out,
how great is that darkness?” You’re like a man who takes the batteries
out of a smoke detector ’cause he doesn’t like being
alarmed by the smoke detector. And all he’s doing is doing
himself a tremendous disservice, ’cause when he goes to sleep
and there’s a fire, there’s nothing
to warn him. And you’re going to go to
sleep without that conscience telling you what to do
’cause you’ve dulled it. You’ve taken the batteries out. And I’m saying,
let it be renewed today. Stir up your conscience. Think about your mortality,
your death. When the Bible calls
an atheist a fool, it doesn’t mean a clown
or a court jester. When it calls him a fool,
it’s because he’s denying the inner light
that God’s given to every man, the knowledge
of right and wrong. It says, “Their foolish
hearts were darkened and they embraced a lie
rather than the truth.” They believed a lie
rather than the truth, which is what atheism is,
it’s a lie. I’m giving you
evidence and facts. Just as a physical book,
by logic and reason, has a maker,
so the instruction book containing infinite wisdom
and intelligence and instructions beyond
any human comprehension is evidence of the existence
of an intelligent designer. But the reason you want to fight
it is the same reason a thief doesn’t want to phone
a policeman. The last thing you want
is God in your life because you love your porn, you love your premarital sex,
your fornication. In a sense,
I’m preaching to the choir because I know that you know
that the Creator exists. The Bible says
you’re given the truth by God, but you suppress it
in unrighteousness. You hold it down. Every single one of us know
that there’s a Creator, but we don’t know the truth
of Christianity, and that’s what we’re called
to do as Christians, bring the truth of Christianity
so that you can live forever. This Creator became a person and made it so you can
have everlasting life if you’re interested. If you’re not,
it’s your choice, but I know that
you want to live. So, the argument
for intelligent design isn’t to convince people
of the Christian message. It’s just to show them
the insanity of atheism. Isaac Newton said,
“Atheism is so senseless.” That’s the father of science. And it is. It’s senseless,
’cause you’re given senses: seeing, hearing, touching,
tasting, and smelling. Think of your taste buds,
how incredible they are, sitting there
waiting for food to come. They all rejoice
and leap for joy when there’s good food
and it gives you pleasure. And think of what
you’re able to look on, the flowers and the birds and hear the birds
in the morning and see the trees raising
their arms in praise to God and the blueness of the sky
and the warmth of the sun. That sun’s
93 million miles away. We’re spinning in space
1,000 miles an hour, round and round. We’re going through space
at 63,000 miles an hour. And that sun is sending rays
93 million miles, and it’s just warm enough
to ripen your tomatoes. (Ray Comfort)
This is very clear evidence. It’s like there’s
nothing to think about. It’s either
nothing made everything or something made everything. Some things made everything,
not something in particular, not one–like,
not one specific thing. (Ray Comfort)
You know what
you’re trying to do? You’re trying to get away from
moral responsibility to God. That’s really your argument,
and that’s what the Bible says. (Ray Comfort)
There has to be
an intelligent mind beyond human reasoning
to put DNA together. Does that make sense? That makes sense. (Ray Comfort)
So, why can’t we make the leap
from there across to saying, “Yeah, atheism can’t be true”? I don’t know, to be honest.
I’m not really too sure. (Ray Comfort)
Examine your motives.
There must be a hidden motive. Let me see if I can guess
what it is, okay? Let’s see if I can
put my finger on it. If you acknowledge
that God does exist, you’re admitting you’re
ultimately responsible to Him. I’m going right
to why you’ve got such a big problem with this. This is so simple.
Someone made the book. Someone created DNA. You don’t want to say
someone who’s intelligent, because you’re into porn, you’re into sex
with your girlfriend. It gives you
so much pleasure and you don’t want
to give it up. And if God exists,
then that’s going to put a big wet blanket
on everything. And that’s not an exciting
thought for someone who loves pornography
and fornication and all the things
that come with it, ’cause there’s
incredible pleasure in fornication
and pornography. And so what you do is
you deny the existence of God because it gives you license
to do those things without a feeling of guilt. If God does exist, wow,
you’re in big trouble, so what you do
is deny His existence. Am I touching a raw nerve?
Am I close? In a way, yeah. – Make sense?
– Makes sense. (Ray Comfort)
That makes sense.
I’m still an atheist. Makes sense.
I’m still an atheist. The book made itself.
It couldn’t make itself. – Can you see what you’re doing?
– Yeah, I’m lying to myself. (Ray Comfort)
Yeah. – Say that again.
– I’m lying to myself. (Ray Comfort)
The Bible puts it this way:
“And this is the condemnation, that the light
has come into the world, and men love darkness
rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil
hates the light and does not come
to the light, lest his deeds
should be exposed.” So, why don’t you check
your own heart and say, “Am I really
seeking truth here, or am I trying to run
like Adam did from God?” You know? Right. (Ray Comfort)
‘Cause it’s not–Andrew,
it’s not altogether bad news for an atheist
if God does exist. I’ll tell you why. It means that you are not just
a nothingness that happened because of an accident in space. It means you’ve got worth.
You’ve got purpose. There’s right and wrong. It means there’s a way past
the thing you have to face, this thing called death
that consumes everyone. (Stephen Colbert)
What do you worry about? – I mean, midlife crisis–
– I fear death. – Death?
– Yes. Okay.
Maybe you’ll go to Heaven. – You’ll die and go to Heaven.
– Okay, that’s–I need help. (Ray Comfort)
The Bible says that we’re
tormented by a fear of death, but we’re so proud
we don’t mention it because it makes us seem
vulnerable and weak. It’s very rare to speak of this
in private, let alone in public. I need to know
what to believe in. (Stephen Colbert)
Like what happens
when you die? Yes, I don’t want to be
a bag of dust. None of us are really sure of anything that happens
after we die. (Ray Comfort)
Oh yeah,
I’m absolutely sure, 100%. Fifty-four million people
a year die. A lot die young. And if God exists, then there’s
possibly a way past death. And I’m saying, man, there is. There really is. What you gotta do
is get to square one and soften your heart and say,
“Okay, this is evidence. I’m no longer an atheist. Tell me what you
want to say.” That make sense? Yeah. (Ray Comfort)
The book that I handed
to the atheists is called, “Made in Heaven,” a publication that explores
32 modern inventions who designs were
copied from nature. Among other things,
scientists studied the shape of birds
to design an airplane, the mosquito
when creating a syringe, and the earthworm
in building the machine that dug the English Chunnel. In 2015, world surfing champion
Kelly Slater and his team of technicians
produced a man-made wave. They too copied nature’s design. They called it man made, but they actually used
existing water, existing ground under the water, and pre-existing laws of energy
to create the wave. It took years for a team
of very intelligent designers to create this one wave. (male)
I’m 100% positive
our team built the best wave
that anyone’s ever made. It’s a freak of technology. (Ray Comfort)
Here is their blueprint. The Scriptures say that God gave
the care of the earth into the hands of mankind and that He’s given us richly
all things to enjoy. ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ (Ray Comfort)
Of course, atheists
believe no such thing. They’re convinced
that all these pleasures came about by pure chance, that it was fortunate
that after the Big Bang, the earth just happened to form
and began circling the sun, that gravity also
came into being to keep us from spinning
into space. They believe it was fortunate
that the atmosphere formed itself around the planet
and that the sun ended up at just the right distance
to support life. It was also an amazing
coincidence that water appeared, and even more miraculously
that inanimate matter somehow came to life. And then, inexplicably,
that first simple cell reproduced itself
and became increasingly complex to create all the plant, animal,
and human life we see. They believe it was
just happenstance that over 1 million
species evolved with both
male and female, each with the corresponding
reproductive parts, and that thousands of different
types of trees evolved, and not only to furnish us
with wood to build houses, but to breathe in
our carbon dioxide and breathe out the oxygen
essential for our life. What a happy coincidence
that cows give us meat, leather, milk, cheese, butter,
yogurt, and ice cream, and that chickens give us
finger-licking good food and protein-packed eggs, and that sheep give us
wool and meat. Atheists also believe
that it was by chance that there are thousands
of delicious plants, fruits, vegetables,
and nuts that are beneficial
to the health of humanity. How kind God is to give us
all these things, and on top of that, to give us the ability
and the pleasure to reproduce
after our own kind. All the combined
atheists in the world, shaking their tiny, rebellious
fists at their Creator, are together like
a minuscule bug on the face
of this massive earth that is nothing but a tiny dot in an unspeakably
immense universe, created by Almighty God. (male)
I’m assuming
you study anthropology quite well to say this. (Ray Comfort)
Have you ever heard
of an atheistic tribe? They always worship something,
a totem pole, the sun, or something, because God
has given light to every man. That’s because we, as humans,
we try to make sense of things that we don’t know, and that’s–
and most of the time, that’s where we make
our mistake. (Ray Comfort)
I couldn’t say that for them. I say they are making sense
of something they do know. They look at creation
or nature and know. Look at the order
of everything. We’re on a great,
big piece of dirt, flying through space
at 63,000 miles an hour, circling the sun once a year. Seasons come ’round,
winter, spring, summer, autumn,
every year. Everything’s clockwork. We can predict the sunrise
100 years from now to the very second because
there’s such order in nature. (Ray Comfort)
You know how many people
die every year? Millions and millions. (Ray Comfort)
Fifty-four million people
every year. People just like you and me
with a will to live saying in their heart,
“Oh, I don’t want to die. I love life.
It’s so precious.” And acknowledging
that God exists is the first step in that area. And to acknowledge
that God exists, you’ve just got to have
a humble heart and say, “Okay, I’m going
to be open.” You know the Bible’s full
of scientific facts that weren’t discovered
til thousands of years later? I didn’t know that. (Ray Comfort)
Yeah, it says the earth
hangs upon nothing in the book of Isaiah. Okay. (Ray Comfort)
That’s written 800 years B.C.,
which shows divine inspiration, because how could they know
in those days about the earth’s
free-float in space? The earth hangs upon nothing.
The earth’s free-float in space. Wash your hands
under running water before we understood
the diseases. Spoke of quarantining. It said the earth is round. It says in Leviticus the life
of the flesh is in the flood. We didn’t know that. You give your doctor
a vile of blood and he can tell you
how your flesh is doing, your whole body, tell you
what’s going on in there, ’cause the life of the flesh
is in the blood. You know something, I don’t
even want to get any older. I hope I got enough guts to get myself
out of this stinkin’ planet. (Ray Comfort)
You’re going
to kill yourself? Yeah, I’d like to. – Please don’t do that, Richard.
– No, no, if I– (Ray Comfort)
You’ve got worth.
You’ve got worth. There’s a reason
for your existence. Anymore–I can’t– (Ray Comfort)
Only as an atheist
you believe like that. Creation is enough
for you to know God exists. Conscience is enough to know
that it requires morality. The commandments condemn you. And the last thing
is conversion. All you have to do
is repent, trust Christ, and you’ll come to know God. And that’s the gauntlet
I throw right in front of you. I say, “Richard,
you’ve got nothing to lose.” You’re going to die. It could be tonight.
It could be tomorrow. Every year
54 million people die. What have you got to lose
but your pride? You think Hell exists? No, that I don’t. (Ray Comfort)
Okay, see if I convince you
of that, all right? If a man rapes your mother
and cut her throat, he should be punished. He should be. (Ray Comfort)
So, if you feel like that,
where do you get it from? It’s because you were
created in God’s image. God believes in right and wrong. He says He set aside a day
in which He’ll judge the world in righteousness. Think of a man like Hitler,
what he did. He slaughtered
11 million people, 6 million of them Jews. Men, women, and children
that were subjected to horrors beyond words. Hell is God’s prison,
the place where people receive justice without parole,
damned forever, which is a terribly
scary thought. This is the problem. We find it difficult to
reconcile God being good and He creating Hell. How can He be loving
and kind and good? I wrote a book called,
“Hitler, God, and the Bible,” and I studied the Holocaust
in research for the book and I saw things that just
made me weep, horrors beyond words. Young girls, teenage girls,
who were hung by the neck just because they didn’t agree
with the Nazi politics. They were called Partisans. They hung them with thin rope
to make it more agonizing, and as they were
in the death struggle, there’s pictures of Nazis
laughing at them as they hung
by the neck and died. And I thought to myself,
“If God is good, how can there not be a Hell?” There must be punishment
for wickedness. Does that make sense? Yeah, it makes
complete sense. (Ray Comfort)
So, what are you going to do
on Judgment Day? How do you think you’ll do?
Are you a good person? I don’t know that
I’m a good person. I don’t really lie,
cheat, or steal, so. (Ray Comfort)
You don’t lie? You know what?
Never mind. (Ray Comfort)
I’m going to move away from your intellect
to your conscience, all right? Okay. (Ray Comfort)
Do you think
you’re a good person? Yes. (Ray Comfort)
Do you think
you’re a good person? If there’s a Heaven, are you
going to make it there? Yeah. If there is a Heaven,
I hope I’d make it there. (Ray Comfort)
Where are you going
when you die? I don’t know. I believe
I’ll go to Heaven, but– (Ray Comfort)
Why would you go to Heaven? What did you do to merit
everlasting life? That’s the question. That’s the question. I–wow, I don’t know
what I did, but I– (Ray Comfort)
It must have been pretty big
to get everlasting life. Right? Well, wow, that’s interesting.
That is a big thinker. – Are you a Christian?
– I’m currently a Catholic. (Ray Comfort)
Have you been born again? I’m not sure what that means. (Ray Comfort)
Well, Jesus said
in John chapter 3, “Unless someone’s born again,
they’ll not enter Heaven,” so this is real important. It’s like the difference between
believing in a parachute and actually putting one on. Things are fine
until you jump, you know? So, the Bible says,
“Put on the Lord Jesus Christ,” and you do that
through the new birth. The only way you’ll see
a need to be born again would be probably the same way you see a need
to put on a parachute. If you didn’t want
to put a parachute on, probably the best thing
I could do for you is hang you out the plane
by your ankles for 2 seconds. You’ll come in and say,
“Give me that parachute.” (Ray Comfort)
Now, Hayley,
I’m going to change gears and just talk about
the same thing from a different angle, okay? – Can you handle that?
– Yes. (Ray Comfort)
You’re not going
to get upset? No. (Ray Comfort)
So, let’s do that. I’m going to hang you out the
plane for a second, okay? (Ray Comfort)
Hayley, do you think
you’re a good person. I do. (Ray Comfort)
Do you think
you’re a good person? I mean, I think so. Yeah. I would like to think so. I’m a good person. I think I’m a very
good person. – What about you?
– Sure. (Ray Comfort)
How many lies do you think
you’ve told in your whole life? Too many. Ha-ha,
plenty of white lies, but I don’t think
anything serious. I’d say about 1,000. Thousands. (Ray Comfort)
The download of music off
the Internet that’s not yours. Say, from, like, a website? Then yes. Music off
the Internet’s stealing. Yeah, it certainly is. – You ever stolen something?
– Not really. (Ray Comfort)
Come on.
What do you mean not really? Sort of half a diamond? (Ray Comfort)
You ever stolen something,
even if it’s small? Yeah. – We’re all sinners.
– You’ve lied and stolen? I’ve lied,
but I’ve never stolen. (Ray Comfort)
You ever downloaded music off
the Internet that’s not yours? Yes. – That’s theft.
– Yeah, ha-ha-ha. Yeah, I’ve stolen. (Ray Comfort)
You’ve got a multitude of sins.
You’re just like me. Every thought you’ve had
that’s been godless, you’ve stirred up as wrath. (Ray Comfort)
Jesus said if you look
at a woman with lust, you commit adultery
with her in your heart. – Did you know that?
– No. (Ray Comfort)
Do you lust after women? Sometimes. – Look at pornography?
– No. (Ray Comfort)
Tell lies? All the time. (Ray Comfort)
Ha-ha, so you do look
at pornography? No. I mean, everybody does. It’s not like
nobody does, but– (Ray Comfort)
So, you do? Yeah, sometimes. (Ray Comfort)
Have you ever looked at
a woman with lust? All the time. The thing is, about that,
I do have trouble with that, with that concept,
with that idea. Because this is now no longer
a sin of what you do, but rather what you think. It’s a thought crime. (Ray Comfort)
You think murder, God says
you’ve committed murder. You think adultery,
you’ve committed adultery, ’cause God considers the desire
the same as the deed ’cause He knows you’d do it
if you had a chance. Lady next door says,
“Come on over, honey,” you’d be over
like greased lightning if you had the opportunity. God knows. He knows the thoughts
and motives of the heart, because we love darkness
and hate the light. (Ray Comfort)
Do you look at pornography? No, I have a girlfriend,
actually, and she’d be really [bleep]
if she found out. (Ray Comfort)
You ever look at pornography? I’ve looked at
pornography, yeah. Treated women like candy. You didn’t ask me that
at first. You asked me do I currently,
and I said no. (Ray Comfort)
You don’t need to,
because you’re fornicating. True. (Ray Comfort)
Have you had sex
out of marriage? Oh yeah. (Ray Comfort)
Have you ever used
God’s name in vain? Yes. – What about you?
– Yeah. (Ray Comfort)
Have you ever used
God’s name in vain? Absolutely. – OMG.
– Then yes. – Oh yeah, all the time.
– That’s blasphemy. (Ray Comfort)
Jesus said
if you look with lust, you commit adultery
in the heart. – Have you ever done that?
– Absolutely. (Ray Comfort)
So, Hayley, I’m not judging
you, but you’ve just told me you’re a lying thief,
a blasphemer. (Ray Comfort)
Fornicator, an idolater,
an adulterer, and you’ve violated
all His commandments if you study them. It comes so naturally to me. (Ray Comfort)
That’s exactly
what the Bible says. We naturally do
that which is wrong. He made me that way! (Ray Comfort)
You can’t blame God
for your own moral– If He made me
with a sinful nature, then how is He
going to blame me? It’s like you make a car
and it doesn’t run, and then you get mad
at the car. (Ray Comfort)
No, it’s not, ’cause a car
isn’t a moral agent. You’ve been given a conscience.
You know right from wrong. “Con” is with,
“Science” is knowledge. So, every time you have
fornicated, lusted, looked at pornography,
lied, or stolen, you’ve done it with knowledge
that it’s wrong. (Ray Comfort)
So, Leigh, you’ve just told me
you’re a lying thief and– A blasphemous
adulterer at heart, and that’s only four
of the Ten Commandments. You have to face God
on Judgment Day, whether you believe
in Him or not. Well, now you believe. If He judges you by the Ten
Commandments on Judgment Day, do you think you’d be
innocent or guilty? Guilty. Most likely guilty. I suppose guilty. I would be 100% guilty. I’d be guilty
just like everyone else. Everybody does bad stuff, so I would be guilty
of those things. – Heaven or Hell?
– Hell. Hell. Well, if there is a Hell,
I would say I would be making my way
down there. Hell. Hell. Hell. – Does that concern you?
– A little bit, yeah. How can He let
some of the stuff happen that we wouldn’t let happen. We’d go to jail
for doing certain things that he lets happen. Why doesn’t He have
a little more– show a little more compassion? (Ray Comfort)
When you look at what
happened in Nazi Germany, instead of saying, “If God is good,
how can He create Hell?” you’ve got to come out saying, “If God is good,
how can there not be a Hell?” There must be retribution
for murder and justice. And the Bible says
God is so good, He’s going to punish
those murderers, but He’s going to punish
rapists and thieves and liars
and fornicators. He’s going to punish sin
wherever it’s found because He’s good. (Ray Comfort)
The Bible says lying lips
are abomination to the Lord. Lying is incredibly–
so is blasphemy. Using God’s name as a cuss word. I would go to Hell. (Ray Comfort)
Does that concern you? It does, but at the same time,
I would hope that if there is a God,
that He would be understanding that I am doing my best to try and be the best person
I can every day. (Ray Comfort)
Well, you’ve blown it
like the rest of us. It’s like standing in front
of a judge and saying, “Judge,
I raped that woman, but I’m really trying
to be the best I can.” It’s already done. The judge is going to
throw the book at him. (Ray Comfort)
Would you go
to Heaven or Hell? Hell. (Ray Comfort)
Does that concern you? If it was real. (Ray Comfort)
It is real. I know it’s real. You know it’s real. God’s given you knowledge
of His existence. Look at the genius
of His hand all around you. Your eyes have got 137 million
light-sensitive cells. Human beings can’t make
an eye from nothing. Just think
of the complexity of life. You’re not even in control
of your life. Do you realize that? You can’t stop
yourself blinking, thinking, breathing,
dreaming. Your bodily functions happen
irrespective of your will. You can’t help but go
to the bathroom every day. You can’t help
but go to sleep at night. You can’t help
but blink and breathe. All these things are set
in motion by God, shaped by your DNA. Your height,
the color of your hair, the color of your eyes,
your personality were all written
in the instruction book of life the moment
you were conceived. And within that psyche
that you have, there’s a will to live. Something in you says,
“I don’t want to die.” You’re not an animal. You’re not a dog
or a cat or a horse. You’re a human being
made in the image of God with a knowledge
of right and wrong, given a conscience by God which is society-shaped
but God-given. You know right from wrong,
and so on Judgment Day, you can’t say,
“I didn’t know.” You’re a human being.
You’re aware of your existence. That’s what human being means.
You’re aware of your being. And so, something in you says,
“I don’t want to die.” It’s self-preservation. The Bible says Jesus Christ
has abolished death. Now, if that isn’t true,
we shouldn’t look into it. But if there’s one chance
in a million that it is, your good sense should just
open your heart and say, “I’ll check it out.” Does that make sense? I hear what you’re saying. (Ray Comfort)
Now, do you know
what God did for guilty sinners so we wouldn’t have
to go to Hell? Any idea? Umm. He–oh gosh. I don’t think I know. Uh-uh. I don’t know. No. Would you mind telling me? (Ray Comfort)
Who could help you?
Nobody. Buddhism can’t help you.
Islam can’t help you. Hinduism can’t help you. Being religious can’t help you.
Being good can’t help you. You are hopeless. The only thing that
can help you is God’s mercy, and that was extended
through the cross, through the Savior. There’s no one on the face
of the earth that can help you. The Bible says, “Neither is
there salvation in any other. There is no other name
under Heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.” That’s why Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth,
and the life. No man comes to the Father
but by Me.” You have no choice. There’s only one
parachute being offered, and that’s the Savior
Jesus Christ. And the Bible says,
“Put on the Lord Jesus Christ.” Jesus of Nazareth,
a perfect, sinless man who gave His life
on the cross. Now, you probably know that, but you may not know
the legal implications. God’s a judge. The Bible paints Him
as the ultimate judge, the habitation of justice. You and I are criminals,
called sinners, because we’ve violated His law,
the Ten Commandments. We’re heading for God’s prison, a place called Hell,
without parole. We’re under the death sentence, but Jesus stepped in
and paid our fine in full. If you’re in court,
even though you’re guilty, if someone pays your fine,
the judge can say, “This person’s guilty,
but someone’s paid his fine. He’s out of here.” And he can do that,
which is just. Well, the Bible says God
can let you live forever because Jesus paid the fine
in full on that cross. When He was on the cross,
He cried out, “It is finished!” On the cross,
that was His last words. In other words,
the debt has been paid. That means God
can legally grant you the gift
of everlasting life. And then He died and then
rose from the dead three days later. And what you have to do
to have your case dismissed, to walk out of God’s courtroom and be gifted
with everlasting life because God’s merciful,
is repent of your sins and trust in Jesus
like you trust a parachute. If you ever
jump out of a plane, don’t just believe
in the parachute. Put your faith in it.
Put your trust in it. And that’s what you must do
with the Savior. You repent and trust in Christ. You don’t have to get religious
or do good works. It’s a free gift of God. And the second
you do that, Andrew, God will dismiss every sin, all those secret sins,
the imaginations of your heart, those sexual ones
you thought no one saw. God saw them and you
stirred up His wrath. If you stand in front
of a judge and say, “Judge, I raped that woman. Very serious crime, but I want to to tell you
I do a lot of good things,” judge is going to say,
“What are you talking about? You’re not going to be judged
by what you do that’s good. You’re going to be judged
on the crime of rape. You’re going to prison, buddy.” The judge won’t judge you
on your good works, and God’s exactly the same. Good works are irrelevant. We can’t bribe God to forgive
our sins and let us live. All we can do is throw ourselves
on the mercy of the judge and say, “God, forgive me.” But the Bible says
God is rich in mercy and He provided a Savior, and He’ll forgive you
in a second because of what Jesus
did on the cross. It’s called grace,
and it’s amazing. The Bible says God is rich
in mercy and He can save you by His grace,
His unmerited favor. He can extend it to you. You don’t have to go
to church on Christmas, and it is about being good, and that’s what’s all religions
are about anyway. Be a good person. You don’t think all religions
have the thing of, “Be a good person”? (female)
Not Christianity. It’s about by grace,
through faith. What? By grace, through faith
you’ve been saved. (Ray Comfort)
It’s called amazing grace. Grace is God’s unmerited favor, and when you repent
and trust Christ, everlasting life is a free gift
and death has no hold on you. See, your beliefs
are so imperative. You may not think beliefs
are important, but if you’re walking
along a path and you believe there’s a land mine
in front of you, your belief
will govern your steps. If you don’t believe,
you’ll walk right onto it. So, what you believe
certainly does matter. And if you believe you’re
a good person when you’re not, you’re a lying thief,
and a blasphemer, adulterer at heart,
you won’t repent. So, that’s the basis
of all religion. They think they can do something
for everlasting life: face Mecca, pray, fast, repent,
lie on bed of nails. They think they can earn
eternal life from God, merit His favor,
and yet it can’t be done. I just want to say, Richard,
I care about you. I love you. I want to see you
on Judgment Day in heaven. I don’t want to hear of you
being in Hell. Nothing would grieve me more, ’cause you have a multitude
of sins, and God’s rich in mercy and will forgive you
if you’ll humble yourself, repent,
and trust in Him. Am I going to be bored
in Heaven if I make it there? – No.
– I won’t be bored? (Ray Comfort)
Let me tell you,
Heaven is not people with wings sitting on crowds
playing rusty harps. That’s ridiculous. God promises were going to
inherit this earth without the Genesis curse. No more earthquakes,
no more hurricanes, floods, disease, pain,
suffering, and death. He’s going to give it
to the meek. The meek’ll inherit the earth. So, when we talk of Heaven, we’re going to have
Heaven on earth, where the lion will lie down
with the lamb, the swords will be changed
into plowshares. No more wars,
no more murder, rape, kids being molested,
no more sin. And you can be part
of that kingdom if you repent
and trust Christ, and I want you to ’cause
I care about you, okay? Well, I’m a total
stranger to you. Why do you care about me? (Ray Comfort)
‘Cause I love you.
I’m a Christian. I’m not filled with hate
like some religions. This is more serious
than a heart attack, so please don’t put it off. Just give it serious thought as you lay your head
on your pillow tonight. Listen to your heart beat
in your ear and realize if that heart stops,
you’re suddenly in eternity facing a holy God
without a Savior. You’re jumping
without a parachute. So, I want you to consider
those thoughts, because there’s nothing
more important than where you’ll
spend eternity. My heart breaks for you.
You’re 18. You’ve got your whole life
ahead of you. You don’t know
when you’re going to die. You’ve got temptations
everywhere to do wrong and God offers you
everlasting life. And the Bible says, “Remember your Creator
in the days of your youth.” Don’t put it off, because
you’ll become self-righteous and harden your heart
to the Lord. When you’re tender and soft, when you’re thinking
about these things, just cry out to God
in humility and– God’ll forgive
your sins in an instant. You don’t have to get religious
or do good works. It’s a free gift of God. Did the information
I gave you about DNA make you think deeper? Yes, it did. Absolutely. (Ray Comfort)
Are you now
no longer an atheist? I suppose when you present to me
the technical definition, I would say no. I am open. When you came up to me
and said atheist, that’s what I identify as, but I believe
that there are things that probably
can’t be explained and it is possible that,
you know, there’s a Creator. I’ll definitely consider this. This will leave
an imprint in my mind. It’s definitely made me
think about it. It’s been eye-opening. (Ray Comfort)
Do you now believe
in God’s existence? Yes, I do. (Ray Comfort)
But have I given you
proof today that there is an intelligent
designer behind DNA? True.
Yeah, you did. For lack of a better word, yes,
I am no longer an atheist. I’m no longer an atheist. (Ray Comfort)
Does this make sense? Yeah. (Ray Comfort)
So, Andrew,
if you were to die today and God gave you justice,
you’d end up in Hell. There are two things
you have to do to be saved. You gotta repent
and trust in Jesus. When are you
going to do that? As soon as I have
a strong, firm belief and I’m ready to adhere
to what God would like me to do. – Does this make sense?
– Very much, yeah. – Yes, it does.
– Yes. – Yes, it does.
– Yeah. – Yeah. (Ray Comfort)
You going to think
about this? Yeah, I’ll think about it. (Ray Comfort)
You going to think
about this? Yeah, definitely. Yeah, it was really informative.
Thank you, yeah. (Ray Comfort)
You going to think
about this? I definitely will. (Ray Comfort)
Has this made
you think today? It definitely has.
It definitely has. I’m glad to talk with you,
because I think I’m sure you’re a lot more intelligent, or somewhat more
than the average person I talk to about religion. (Ray Comfort)
You going to get right
with God today? – Is that what you’re saying?
– Yeah. (Ray Comfort)
So, you’ll come to the Lord,
just apologize for your sins, put your faith in Jesus and then pick up that Bible
and read it daily and obey it and God’ll never
let you down, man. This is more serious
than a heart attack, so today would be the day. And please don’t feel
pressured by me. It’s your life
and it’s your will, but it’s just a matter
of saying: God, you gave me life.
You gifted me life. I’ve used your name
as a cuss word. I’ve sinned against you.
I’ve violated your commandments. Please forgive me
and transform me and grant me the gift
of everlasting life. It’s gotta come from your heart.
I can’t pressure you. – Does that make sense?
– Yes. (Ray Comfort)
When are you going
to do that? Almost immediately. (Ray Comfort)
You serious? Yeah, I’m serious. (Ray Comfort)
You realize
what you’re doing? You’re giving up your will. You’re saying, “Not my will,
but Yours be done. You gave me life.
I’ve sinned against You. Please forgive me.
And I yield my life to You.” (Ray Comfort)
Things are going to
change from now on? Yeah. – You serious?
– I’m serious. I will take
a closer look at God. (Ray Comfort)
You really mean that you’re
repenting of your sins and trusting alone in Christ? Yes, I am. I would like to go
to church actually. (Ray Comfort)
So, please think about this.
Will you at least do that? Sure. – Do you have access to a Bible?
– Yeah. (Ray Comfort)
You have over
20,000 on your phone. – Did you know that?
– That’s a good selection. (Ray Comfort)
So, when are you
going to get right with God? I guess as soon as I can. (Ray Comfort)
You mean, like, today? Yes. (Ray Comfort)
You realize
what you’re doing? You’re laying down your will
and you’re saying, “God, I’m not going to
play the hypocrite. I’m going to repent of my sins
and trust alone in Christ.” – You understand that?
– Yes. (Ray Comfort)
You must repent and
trust alone in Jesus. When are you going
to do that? Tonight. (Ray Comfort)
When are you going
to do that? As soon as possible. – Like today?
– Yes. (Ray Comfort)
The Bible says,
“Today is the day of salvation,” so don’t even presume that you’ve got
til tonight, you know? Just, in the quietness of your
heart, say, “God, I’m a sinner. I’m a rebel. Please forgive me,”
and He’ll do so the instant you put
your faith in Christ. That’s what a Christian is,
someone who’s given up the rebellion and says, “Lord, I surrender to You,
and I’m going to obey and love and serve You
from now on.” Is that what you’re saying? That’s what I’m saying. (Ray Comfort)
Can I pray with you? Of course. (Ray Comfort)
Father, I pray for Augusto,
that this day, he’ll truly repent,
be genuinely sorry for his sins, and trust in You, and pass from death to life
because of Your mercy. (Ray Comfort)
You can’t help
but blink and breathe. All these things are set
in motion by God, shaped by your DNA. Your height,
the color of your hair, the color of your eyes,
your personality were all written in the
instruction book of life the moment
you were conceived. Nearly 3,000 years ago,
the psalmist wrote that when he was conceived
in his mother’s womb, before he was even formed,
every part of his very substance was written in a special book. “For You formed
my inward parts; You covered me
in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am
fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works. Your eyes saw my substance,
being yet unformed. And in Your book
they were all written.” ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ Thank you so much

  1. The early-video interviews of equating the complexity of a printed book's need for a designer and the need for DNA's complexity needing a designer is absurd.

    First up, it glosses over the EONS of evolution DNA has had to change gradually over.
    Next, it completely ignores the fact that DNA is nothing more than chemical sequences, which by the laws of physics, behave in specific ways under specific circumstances to yield specific outcomes. The tricky thing for people to understand is the chemical level of it, due to the vast amount of input needed to understand these molecular interactions on a microscopic scale, eventually producing results visible on a macroscopic scale.

    "Because God" is just a lazy excuse to blindly trust something complex or unpleasant, rather than attempt to learn and understand the science of the system for logical understanding.

  2. I watched a video about how the earth moves. I always thought that the earth rotated around the sun. But, according to the video the earth is actually chasing the sun along with all the other planets. You see the sun is part of a huge flat disk of stars called a galaxy. This galaxy is spinning. The sun is actually moving away from us at about 475,000 miles per hour. It has to move from us or the earth would be sucked into it. So actually the earth is corkscrewing behind the sun not rotating as if the sun were standing still in in outer space. If the sun was traveling just a little bit slower it would come closer and closer and the earth would soon be too hot for life. Likewise if the sun was traveling just a little bit faster then it would be too cold. This fact alone should also help us to believe in an intelligent design. The seasons, the moon and it suturing the oceans. There is a God up above that is looking down with love. Trust in him today, there is no other way. Then when you come to the end of your days, then you will understand his ways. His only son died for you and me. Ask him to forgive your sins and set you free.

  3. So say God didn't created existence
    Say a big bang caused it.. 1 what caused the big bang.. and then what cause that cause.
    2 how did science, create science.
    so science created people with Purpose and Intention but scientist acknowledge them as unaccountable factors.
    why do scientist use science to justify the creation of science. but dont use themselves to justify the creation of themselves
    truth is they don't, because its a theory.
    what other options do we have
    God is the truth and fact.

  4. so they say energy can't be created or destroyed but then claim and explosion that had to first exist, created existence
    am i knocking the theory, no
    i'm saying the purpose that science lacks is God
    there is no creation without the creator

  5. My name is Valcleidson. I live in JOINVILLE – SC Brasil. Estou amando os vídeos do canal. Tank's Ray Confort. God blessed you.

  6. God is not a monster. Those who believe God would throw children into a lake of lava to burn forever for their short life of missing the mark are supporting a lie. Ray needs to look more into the godless philosophy behind 'hell' which originates from pagan ideology during a period where the medieval Roman Catholic misunderstanding was common. The word 'hell' was translated from words which in the original bible languages meant ideas such as death, grave, rubbish dump, etc. A symbolic lake of lava is for the wicked spiritual beings – how can a spirit be burned? Sadly Ray teaches error in this regard. We instinctively know that torturing is not an act of love – something is wrong with that false doctrine. God is good.

  7. When God shows Himself and opens your heart.. you can do nothing but kneel. For He is The King of all kings.

  8. Precious!! Your knowledge and understanding is impeccable but what stands out the most is your ultra humble spirit and calm disposition toward others as you confront those lost in darkness and openly share with them the light of the world Jesus Christ. Thank you for tesching us how to be more like Jesus. Bless you mightily as much as you have blessed us, all praise to Jesus Christ the Saviour of the world. Amen 🙏❤🕊

  9. Genesis 1:7 
    7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

  10. at 45:00 "he made me with a sinful nature how can he blame me for it" Do you want a coke or a water? Are you going to push someone off a cliff when standing near by? it's your choice so plain and simple. Crazy! God Bless all.

  11. I disagree with one thing said.
    He tells several of them that they don't have to change anything as long as they repent and believe in Jesus.

  12. I can't thank you enough, I did enjoy immensely this video. I'm from Mexico and after watching this I fell in love again with my Savior, what an amazing creator, what a wonderful God. I DID WITNESS THE SPIRIT OF GOD WORKING IN ALL THIS PEOPLE, ACTUALLY THEY LOOKED VERY BEAUTIFUL. Thanks.

  13. I used to be an atheist, but now believe that there likely is a designer/creator. Guess I am more agnostic now, but can't deny that the probability that we exist by shear chance is pretty much improbable. There's is so much we don't know and so more to learn. I suspect that the "evidence" for a designer is what we see everyday and we just don't have the capacity to grasp it. But, that's just my opinion.

  14. Man to think of it while looking at this video. I am feeling joy. My Lord has a real good sense of humor. He created this world with love and petience. You know how people are with that type of behavior? I really want to meet him. We would have a good laugh. People are forgetting that sin is rebellion against God and that is every other religion. God does not love religion. Jesus Christ doesn't love religion. He sent his followers to tell the whole world about the good news

  15. If you were born in Pakistan you would be Muslim , America you would be Christian, another part of the world you might be Hindu.. let me ask a simple question “ what religion was your parents” what religion are you?? A talking snake, a massive flood that kills every man ,woman and child, why? If god is good and what he commands is good , why murder innocent people and animals? He asks you to kill your son to test your faith.. does this sound reasonable?? There is no evidence of a global flood. No evidence of a giant wooden ark.. except the one in Kentucky with dinosaurs on it! Wow We have carbon dating, radioactive dating, a multitude of dating fossils, We know the earth is several billion years old because all the data collected converges on the same timeline, and why can’t you challenge these religious beliefs with facts and evidence , without being judged an evil person. I still have morals, love my family and friends!!my dog and cat too. That’s my 2 cents!!

  16. Richard Dawkins was getting upset but pastor Ray was called bananaman and became famous😂 thank God for people like pastor Ray! Love from South Africa!

  17. Many people that call themselves Atheist actually are Agnostic. My son told me he was Atheist and I asked similar questions to the point of "Do you believe that there is something or someone that made all this but you just don't know who or how? and maybe it's impossible to know who?" and he said yes, and I said "you're not Atheist, you're Agnostic". It's obviously much better to be Agnostic than Atheist. A person actually has to be Agnostic before they can be "Gnostic" in the sense of a verb, not the religion of Gnosticism. Sure, many will just stay Agnostic all their life but many, once they have the understanding that there might be something will actually find that something if they start looking. Being Gnostic means having a "knowing", and that knowing is a spiritual experience where God DOES reveal Himself to you. It can't happen though if you are not at all open to the idea because your mind shuts it out. It's like that quote "Miracles only happen for those that believe they can". I'm not religious and I'm not New Age. I do believe in Jesus but I'm not a "Churchian" so I don't like to call myself Christian, because that's what it implies. I believe that people that are Agnostic have a much better chance of getting to the truth than falling into a religion or a cult. Because they're thinkers and they can have a personal, spiritual experience that is outside the bounds of religion, and yes, religion puts boundaries on a person's mind and thus experience. Some people however, do need religion. It's simple really, if the 10 commandments don't come natural to you and how you live life, then you probably need religion, for a while at least. lol

  18. I fell away but decided today it would be diff…but I woke up feeling nauseous and sleep deprived and saw me already wanting to push it back. This video came up at the right time! I obviously know God is real, but just hearing about my father's greatness makes me want to cling unto Him all day long!

  19. Good job in converting atheists to believers through arguing common sense necessity for the existence of a creator, however unsuccessful trial in guiding the audience to the way they should follow!

    Jesus, peace be upon him, is not God, the son of God or anything “supernatural”, he’s just a “special” (actually very, very special) human that God chose to be a “messenger” to his people!

    God is so powerful and there are no limitations to his will; if he so wills, he can forgive people without getting on the cross himself, or sacrificing his “claimed” son on the cross for something he didn’t do! That’s completely none sense, and absolutely unfair!

    God has full, accurate and detailed knowledge and supervision over his universe, he sees you, hears you and knows your deepest emotions and what you’re thinking of at anytime; you can pray to him directly!

    However you need to know what he wants from you through revelations, the last of which is the holy Quran which is completely preserved and fully correct without a single letter written that was not revealed by him.

    I fully appreciate and like the arguments of this film, until it came to discuss how to repent to Godand what is the path to follow to get to God “safely”.

    The authenticity of all the books before Quran is critically questionable beyond doubt!

    I couldn’t have just close my eyes and pass by without commenting.

    Thank you.

  20. Does anyone think of DNA mutation is designed?
    Does anyone think out of a million sperms deployed during sex, was designed or in anyway was meant to produce Ray Comfort? Did a higher power particularly influence the result of a random possibilities? Rigged or mere chance?

  21. Islam will tell you the truth, Isa (Jesus) p.b.o.h. is one of the many prophets that Islam holds. He is one of the many messengers who spread the word of the one and only true God – Allah swt.. please don't be misleaded. I'am a convert to Islam and it keeps my heart extremely warm… don't be blinded by your sins.. if you can take the effort to repent to Allah swt then He will wash you sins away just like a newborn.
    May Allah swt bless this whole ummah and take people to the right path… before the day of judgement <3

  22. How meaningful, mighty, life-changing and deep the Bible verses are – in comparison to the words of atheists where there is no depth and no meaning.

  23. When they die they will know thiers a God out thier my prayer is they get saved .they are deceived in thier own heart God have mercy am

  24. I noticed that many who called themselves, 'atheists', were young. For me….Nature is God's greatest design. Humanity should be……but we have failed miserably on that count. Divine Intelligence is the answer. A consciousness so high, and vast is not easy to just accept…but if your heart is as huge and as soft as it could be…..then we would be open to the miracle of Life. I don't depend on any bible, but live a Christ Consciousness life. I live and think and act through my life as Christ would have. Simple kindness, compassion, lack of judgement, care for others, helping others. I don't need to listen to some flawed preacher, minister, priest, rabbi. I have my own straight connection to the Universe, the Cosmos….and it has never failed me. Peace Be to all!

  25. You’re the best Ray. If there was someone like you in every city, the rebellion would stop. Praise God and thank you Jesus

  26. He's coming like thief in the night, see the Scrolls Lamb of God or 7 Seals Rev.5.to10. This is KNOWLEDGE it's not a Religious check out John The Protector Also 1 John chapter 4. The false profet and the Anticrist= this is yourself. .

  27. Hello, RAY i watch this video many times and share it whit a lot of people…. Actually here the big issue in Italy is if your videos was all with Italian sub I would reach a lot of souls… Becouse it makes souch sense and God gave you the gift to put it in order and right perfectly organized that people are not confused and they get clearly your message.
    Thank you so much…. I have a request I wanted if you have a possibily to translate the video with Italian sub titles about the scimpanzé about the evolution that would help a lot…. Italy is growing with the knowledge of "there is no God" a even being in a catholic country.
    Please do. Take in consideration my request….. I watch you video almost everyday, when I can, they are mind blowing thank you and God bless you and your works.

  28. BTW ~ A "born again christian" means that you are willing to give up almost everything (money, materialism, greed, and power) and give God control of your life. This is exactly why the Bible doesn't make sense when the Bible talks about spiritual warfare. You only become aware of the spiritual world (the other world that exists along side of the physical world) if you are willing to give up money, materialism, power, and greed.

    This is why Jesus told his followers to give until it hurts and “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me."

    There is no where in the above passage by Jesus that tells people that this information is meant for after people die. This is why becoming a "born again Christian" is extremely important to those who are living. Once you become a "born again Christian" you will be made aware of 2 things > 1) God will reveal himself to you and 2) you will become fully aware and take part in the the ongoing spiritual battle between Good and Evil. When you get this far you WILL encounter resistance from Satan and you will see this through people around you telling you LIES and causing you tremendous grief and making your life miserable as hell (Satan is a spirit as well and has the ability to manipulate and influence people's thoughts and actions). However, remember that God lets Satan take the first punch but do not give up as God sees and knows everything and will dish out His punishment by changing the future (10X worse for your enemy) of those wanting to harm you. Do not be worried about money either as God will provide you with what you need. Do not worry about materialism either. What's most important is everything in the physical world are only temporary and short lived. What is most important is you have your foot into door to heaven now.

    When Jesus says “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me." Jesus is referring to a person's LIFE when they are living or "NOW" not after they die. This is why the Bible contains this information because once a person dies this information in the Bible is of no use. The information that Jesus provides in meant for the people who are "living".

    Remember, according to the Bible God gave Satan dominion over the physical world and because Satan has most souls after they die due to money, materialism, power, and greed. As a result almost everyone will end up in HELL. Jesus even said so himself that the door to HELL is wide and is easily entered and the door to heaven is extremely narrow and will be extremely difficult to enter.

  29. This is retarded. The very first thing the interviewer does is equating the printing of a book to creation of matter.

  30. Study the blood brain barrier. Explain how nature developed it knowing it was creating a system that protects our brains from pathogens that get in our blood vessels. Study how the body stops (minor) bleeding. How did nature know where to send certain blood cells to the point of bleeding to create a web to slow the bleeding and then stopping it with a coat known as a scab? Nature should win a Nobel Prize.

  31. "unlike religion we dont have all the answers" I dont have ALL the answers glorious is the mystery of the holy spirit .

  32. I think most Atheists define themselves based on a separation from the Christian Biblical description of God. Most seem like they are open to the idea of a Divine Creator of All Things however they have been turned off by the religious aspects of Christianity and its definition of God. The Church, although there are many good churches who do good things, has potential to also hijack a connection to God. I've carry God in my heart from the age of consciousness at 7 years old. I've been to the Buddhist temples, I've been to Catholic churches, I've been to Christian churches. The description of God in the Christian way is a way to explain it to everyone on on a mass level I think. The truth is nobody wants to be a bag of dust, nobody wants to live without knowing what unconditional love is, & we all can tell the difference between we are in touch with something beyond ourselves. I believe for more open-minded people to accept God in their heart, we must move away from some of the traditional, idol-centered, ritual-centered aspects of believing in God.

  33. People forget that God gave us all Free Will. That is precious & dangerous. That is why there must be Hell. People have to be punished for doing evil deeds.

  34. Awesome video. I don't believe in the Big Bam Boom either. The guy (I don't know his beliefs) in the video link at the end of this comment made some good points about modern science and God: "Does Science Argue for or against God? "

  35. I was agnostic for 27 years thanks to public school brainwashing, eviloution and deception. It took a lot to convince me God existed. Now, I've been a born again believer for nearly 30 years and I know the truth…and the truth will make you free!

  36. There's a fine line between Creation and God. Yes there is a big difference. Dont let this show tint your common sense

  37. Science can explain how there is a rainbow in the sky when it rains
    but if you ask why the laws align themselves in such a way or what the purpose might be
    The crickets start to praise just as all science fails to provide an answer strong enough to deny it's creator.

  38. If the judge says in court "someone paid for your crime"
    But in this case assuming that the judge in court is God that means that the person that paid for the crime of the guilty is sent from the judge itself..
    So confusing 😥

  39. Why would anyone cling to the conspiracy theory fairy tail of an all-seeing, all-knowing, all-powerful, unseen entity?? The Bible was written by man as a desperate attempt to keep order in a backwards land; to oppress women and to oppress science. But go ahead and deny the obvious: Cling to the comfortably numb delusion of ignorance, fear, and oppression.

  40. The way this video misrepresents both atheism and science (particularly the Big Bang Theory, which does NOT say something came from nothing) is nauseating.

  41. One of the best videos on convincing atheists. God bless you all it made me cry and renew my faith in Jesus. Thanks Praise God

  42. The argument is not god or no god, but rather: my god or no god. The reason so many Christians become atheists is because of the scant evidence for a Christian god, not because they are dodging moral responsibility. If something cannot come from nothing the conclusion is not immediately: my god out of all the others exists and so all other religions are false except mine. (Most have their own evidence as well that 'proves' they are correct.)

  43. Yeah…this failed to convince me, every atheist has heard these arguments before, I can't be asked to refute them now but if you want me to I'll edit them down below. Still this was enjoyable to watch even if the arguments sucked.

  44. There you have it! just taking credits to all the hard work from all the scientist and engineers. People who put their hard work into explaining the source of life.
    Religion is man made.
    Creationist theories are really weak.

    Imaginary friends are for kids.

  45. how can the christian god be proven ? he doesn't know what created the earth he doesn't know it's just wishfull thinking to say it was a god especially a christian god or any of the millions of man made gods.

  46. FYI dogs do care if people are hurting……this man says a dog doesn’t care if a child is being mistreated 😓
    Jesus cares and loves all his creations.🙏

  47. search up beavers and watch as many documentaries as you can
    so smart, so beautiful, so creative, the work they do to survive is amazing
    what caused them to become so smart and amazing
    any answers

  48. kkkkkkkkkkkkk but u forgot of to say, who created god ? if god could existe without some one created it, the universe could too. dumb !!!!!!!

  49. I feel elevated, blessed and in total peace of mind when I hear words touching my inner thoughts and morals, the way of living I'm devoted to. Thank you, Lawrence Krauss.
