Ex-Christians who are now Atheists, does the following elicit any kind of reaction from you….just curious?
Proverbs 13 (Amplified Bible)
13Whoever despises the word and counsel [of God] brings destruction upon himself, but he who [reverently] fears and respects the commandment [of God] is rewarded.
14The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, that one may avoid the snares of death.
15Good understanding wins favor, but the way of the transgressor is hard [like the barren, dry soil or the impassable swamp].
16Every prudent man deals with knowledge, but a [self-confident] fool exposes and flaunts his folly. The Holy Bible http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs+13&version=AMP

I’d like to introduce you to every other Bible quoting Christian I’ve met…
Thanks for giving clear cut appeals to fear and reward.
