Quote from Thesauros

The excerpt below is from a commenter on Alice Linsley's "Just Genesis" blog.  I think that the four points regarding the Bible's teachings are well worth consideration:

     It's just so sad, depressing even, to watch atheists consistently, constantly fail to comprehend the realities of life. It's mind numbing to observe such a relentless stream of ignorance.
I ran into another example yesterday. An atheist was mocking Christians:
How arrogant of Christians to think that a planet, let alone a universe was created just for people.”
     Actually, I’d have to agree - If that is what Christians believed and If that is what the Bible taught. Neither assumption is correct. The problem is, almost everything that atheists say or think shows their lack of understanding about the Bible and about their Creator. The Bible, which Jesus taught is a revelation from God, to us, about God and His plan for the cosmos, teaches the following:
#1. The Cosmos was not created for us. It was created for God / Jesus.
#2. We, humans, were not created for us and for our pleasure. We were created for God / Jesus.
#3. God does not love us because we’re good. God loves us because He is good.
#4. God does not love us because we have value. We have value because God loves us.

     “For by Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible; all things were created by Him and for Him.”
Colossians 1:16
