Personally, I find your new requirement needed for salvation a bit "bothersome" because you are saying I, as an atheist, have no shot at salvation because I don't love any god(s).
However, a person who at least loves some kind of god (even Satan) has a shot at salvation. Interesting but "bothersome".
Why would an atheist bother about salvation?
I find this question to be quite "bothersome" as well. Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying this exchange but some of your ideas on salvation don't make sense to me. I mean, it's mind boggling to me that you think I can worship Satan who is the adversary of your god and still get into heaven but if I live my life not loving any gods than I am doomed.
Before I answer this question I must first point out that I am an agnostic atheist. Agnostic = knowledge claim. Atheist = belief claim.
In other words, if you ask me if I can KNOW if a god exists or not, I would side with the agnostics, because I don't KNOW.
Ask me if I BELIEVE in a god or not, and I would side with the atheists because I don't. Based on all the evidence that I have been given I don't BELIEVE in a god because the evidence I have been given for the existence of god(s) has not been convincing to me. Thus, since I don't BELIEVE there is any god(s) I don't love any god(s). However, I don't KNOW for sure that there is not a god so I fully admit that I could be wrong on my BELIEF since I claim to be agnostic as well.
So, to answer your question, if there is a place after this life where I can spend eternity with my friends and family members I would love to go. If I had a choice to go to a place where I could spend eternity with my friends and family members I would choose to go. SO I WOULD LOVE TO BE SAVED! I would love to spend eternity in a place that I can be with friends and family for eternity.
However, I have not been given sufficient evidence to BELIEVE that a place like this exists. There has not been convincing evidence given to me to BELIEVE a god even exists. That's why I was so interested in the evidence for your god earlier in this thread. But as you clearly saw, just like all the evidence I have been given for Jesus/Yahweh, your evidence was not convincing to me.
So, to echo what I said in my last post, I find it "bothersome" that I could worship the adversary of your god and possibly enter into heaven but I would have no shot as an agnostic atheist because I have examined the evidence and don't believe there is any god out there to love. According to your requirement needed for salvation that one needs to love any god and love your neighbor like yourself I would be doomed because I don't love any god.
I feel like this has been an honest conversation so I have to be honest with my wording. I would go a lot further than saying this is just "bothersome" to me. If you are right and if the requirement for salvation is to just love any god then I have to say your god is a jerk. I hope you forgive me for saying that but if I could worship Satan and have a shot at salvation but have no shot as an atheist, then your god is a real jerk.
If your requirement for salvation is true, the question shouldn't be why would an atheist bother with salvation, the question should be why is your god so unfair towards people who have examined all the evidence and have concluded there is no god(s) to love.
I think that anytime a theist attempts to make a formula about their faith they will always be seen as confused. So be it. I do appreciate being seen as open-minded and honest.
Do you know why Christian's are seen as being confused? From my perspective, it's because the bible is ambiguous and contradictory. When it comes to making a "formula about their faith" they will always run into a dead end. The bible is a Christian's adversary if they ever want to make a clear "formula about their faith".
The bible is not clear on the true nature of Jesus. There are verses that seem to point that he is the one true god and then there are verses that blatantly contradict this notion. That is why the doctrine of the Trinity had to be DEVELOPED. The doctrine of the Trinity seems to solve a lot of the contradictions regarding the nature of Jesus but one only has to examine the Trinity to discover this doctrine is man made and really doesn't solve anything. With the use of reason and logic, one can discover the doctrine of the Trinity does not truly solve the problem with the contradictions found regarding the nature of Jesus. The only HONEST conclusion is to say the bible is contradictory on this topic.
In addition, there is no exact formula for salvation found in the bible. Whatever "formula" a Christian comes up with I can always find a verse that contradicts their "formula". In my opinion, this should be a HUGE problem for Christians. Why would an all-loving and all-powerful god not want to lay out the exact formula for salvation? According to one Christian, it might even be okay to worship Satan and still enter into heaven. JUST LOVE ANY GOD!!!
Anyway, after examining the bible I cannot BELIEVE the bible to be inspired by your god. I see different authors, writing at different times, with different purposes, with different theologies, with different teachings, with different views on the nature of their god and different requirements needed for salvation. It is no wonder that people who read the bible come out with different interpretations on different doctrines.
Conclusion: I believe the bible is the "word" of man who pretend there is a god and not the "word" of any particular god.
