Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

You know how atheists rarely venture outside of the Old Testament lest they run into teachings of Jesus that convict them of a deep need for forgiveness? And you know how atheists accuse Christians of cherry-picking verses to make our case? Do you think atheists ever do the same thing?  Have you ever seen them ranting about this verse? 

Lamentations 3:22-23 - Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

  1. That preface of yours about Jesus & forgiveness is a bit misleading, as you keep quoting the OT.
    But in this case, Lamentations. Love them. especially 3:38/39

    38 Is it not from the mouth of the Most High
    that both calamities and good things come?
    39 Why should the living complain
    when punished for their sins?

    It's a bit hard to reduce JHV to a benevolent helper... as the Hebrews knew pretty well.
