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

The Atheist View of Humanity

Atheist view – “All in all? You're just another brick in the wall.”
Pink Floyd

Bertrand Russell confirms this belief. That man is the product of causes which had no prevision of the end they were achieving; that his origin, his hopes and fears, his loves and his beliefs, are but the outcome of accidental collocations of atoms; that no fire, no heroism, no intensity of thought and feeling, can preserve an individual life beyond the grave; that all the labours of the ages, all the devotion, all the inspiration, all the noonday brightness of human genius, are destined to extinction in the vast death of the solar system, and that the whole temple of Man's achievement must inevitably be buried beneath the debris of a universe in ruins – all these things, if not quite beyond dispute, are yet so nearly certain, that no philosophy which rejects them can hope to stand. Only within the scaffolding of these truths, only on the firm foundation of unyielding despair, can the soul's habitation henceforth be safely built.”

On atheism, there can be no other view of humanity.

Christian view – You're a child of the King; a brother/sister of Jesus; created in the image of the Creator of the universe. “You are the special creation of a good and all-powerful God. You are created in His image, with capacities to think, feel, and worship that set you above all other life forms. You differ from the animals not simply in degree but in kind. Not only is your kind unique, but you are unique among your kind.” 
Randy Alcorn.

Because of Creator God you are loved.
Because of Creator God you were born into His love.
Because of Creator God you were born to know His love.
Because of Creator God you were born to enjoy His love for you.
