It has been declared by some that as long as one confesses that he or she does not believe in God or Jesus Christ, that person has no obligation to believe.
However, God the Father and Jesus do not see it that way.
"For (God does not overlook sin and) the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against ll ungodiness and unrigheousness of men who in their wickedness suppress and stifle the truth, because that which is known about God is evident within them (in their inner consciiousness), for God made it evident so them. For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, have been made visible.
His eternal power and divine natre, have been clearly seen, begining understood through His workmanship (all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made), so that they who fail to believe and trust in Him are without excuse and without defense. For even though they knew God (as the Creator), they did not honor Him as God or give thanks (for His wondrous creation). On the contrary, they became worthless in their thinking (godless, with pointless reasonings, and silly spiculations, and their foolish heart was darkened" - Romans 1:17-21 (AMP).
The above is simply the way of this world.
There is such a profound amount of evidence that there is a Creator of all things...and those "things" include human kind. There is no such thing as "time and chance" in the universe - or on the earth.
All humanity must stand before Jesus Christ and hear their judgment concerning what each of us has believed, that which has led each of us to do in our lives. Belief untimately results in who we are and what we will do.
Each human who has lived life on earth must give an account of that life. By the sheer experience of being born, receiving the breath of life, and has lived and responded to events in that life, must give an account to the one who made him and her.
Otherwise, God would not be just. He would not be God. But is ALWAYS just.
This is why Jesus came to earth to even the score. There had to be a substitute. Otherwise, all humanity would live, die and return to the dust - forever.
However...God is Love, and Love will not; indeed as God, He cannot deny Homself.
"For now (in this time of imperfection) we see in a morrir deimly (a blurred reflection, a riddle, an enigma, but then (when the time of perfection comes we will see reality face to face. Now we know in part (just in fragments), but then we will be fully know, jut as I have been fully known (by God. And now there remain: faith (abiding trust in God's love for us, these three (the choicest graces, but the greatest of these is love" - 1 Corinthians 13.
Wo you - will you - believe in Jesus Christ as your Savior?
He came to earth and died for you...so that when you are judged, you will not be condemed - you will be forgiven of every sin and flaw. You will live in the Paradse with God - forever with your Savior, the God of pwerfect love.
