The Atheist Religion

I’ve noticed a lot of discussions between Atheists and Christians. There seems to be a lot of flaming from both sides.

Usually the Atheist professes to be more intelligent and free-thinking than any Christian. They talk as if what they’re saying is fact, and that the Bible is a fairytale.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools… who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creation more than the Creator. (Romans 1)

I feel that Atheists have to be really ignorant to believe the entire universe could come to exist by pure random chance. Atheists really don’t put any brain-time into their creation theology. And that should set off some alarms already.

Some Christians misrepresent God and might have actually caused Atheists to dislike God. The thing that most people don’t realize is that a meeting with God is very liberating. People expect judgment and condemnation, but in Christ there is no (yes, zero!) condemnation. (Romans 8:1).

I believe most ‘Atheists’, when faced with their death beds, will cry out to God. Atheists do believe that some higher power exists, but they refuse to acknowledge Him. They are reluctant to get to know Him because it’s more convenient that way.

I’m afraid that no person is with excuse, and Romans 1 is clear on this: For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made (creatures/us), even His eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations (theology, theories and ideologies), and their foolish heart was darkened.

To be honest, a lot of what the world see about Christianity is actually wrong, with churches misrepresenting God many times.

I’d like to suggest every Atheist, because they like to think of themselves as open-minded, buy themselves a Bible and spend time in the New Testament. You may just meet God, too….

You will like what you find.

And that’s my 2 cents…

  1. Def agree with your article.

    As a Muslim I follow God, and I cannot understand why there are so many people who believe that this world just happened.
    This world was created for a purpose and it will be interesting to see what transpires when we leave this world.

    Peace!

  2. Hi,

    Really appreciated and agree with your article. Hoping that it gets many views and that people would really take a serious look at what they do or do not believe, especially if they say they have an open mind about things.

  3. I believe every Christian should take a course in Christian Apologetics. The Greater Grace World Outreach (http://www.ggwo.org) has a course, though I’m not sure if it is taught online or available all round the year. The facts you learn are simply mind-awakening. Everything about Jesus and the Universe can be proven scientifically, historically, archaeologically and statistically. I come from a Hindu background. But I am born-again. I have studied Hindu scriptures and some of other faiths too. The Bible is the most objective. In fact, the Bible, the Qur’an and some major Hindu scriptures preach probably the common message of salvation, Muslims respect Jesus as the healer – the book says that he is the Word of God (Kaleematullah) and the Spirit of God (Roohallah). It is said that the oldest Hindu book the Rig-Veda prophecies about the only Saviour of mankind to be God, who would be born as a human, of a virgin, live a sinless life and die on a wooden cross. He would resurrect and whosoever believes in him would live with him in heaven forever…something on those lines. I don’t recall the exact chapter and verses though. Coming back to atheists, they can be ministered to scientifically. But prayer too may be needed to break the strongholds over their minds.
