I love to share my faith with non-believers and seekers alike, who have questions about the Christian faith, what we believe and why we believe it. In light of the postmodern perspective that many people adhere to these day, I would like to give a biblical perspective as a contrast to those who say that there is no absolute truth. I believe that the truth can be found in God's word the Bible. http://media4lifeministries.com

The Atheist Dilemma
Atheist or Anti-theist as I like to call them, love to make the statement, "there is no God!"
had numerous conversations with anti-theist which lead nowhere except
around and around in circles. An Atheist strongly believes that there is
no God, just as I strongly believe God exist. Sometimes I wonder why an
atheist is so outspoken against something they claim does not exist.
Dawkins, Hitchens and many others have written numerous books on their
When I was not yet a believer, I
never thought of going around mocking Christians and their faith. These
guys go out of their way pushing their adgenda. Why? Is there maybe deep
within them some kind of fear? Atheist people get real mad when I call
their atheism a religion. Their statement of "there is no God" is an
empty statement, because they cannot for a fact disprove God. Neither
can I necessarily prove the existence of God to them. So, in my view an
atheist has thoroughly examened all the evidence and has come to the
conclusion in his or her mind that God does not exist.
the atheist can not disprove God for a fact, their believe that God
does not exist is by faith. I as believer I know with an absolute
certainty that God exist and that God is the creator of all things. I
have not seen God, but I believe by faith just as the atheist believes
by faith. When I say God, I mean the God of the Bible, YHWH, the only
true and living God. God is only a title and there are many god's and it
can get confusing sometimes, because people have made so many of their
own god's in the past and present. The Bible speaks very clear about
the natural man, which in this case the atheist is, a natural man
without any kind true spiritual understanding.
"But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God,
for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are
spiritually discerned." 2Cr 2:14.
It is a fact that unbelievers and rejecters of God have no spiritual
understanding or relationship in any way to the true and living God. The
dilemma for the atheist is that they can not be sure that there is no
God. One thing believers and unbelievers share is that at one point in
our life's we will have to face death. One out of one dies and that is
reality. The question for the atheist is, what happens at the moment of
passing? Blackness, darkness, nothingness? The light switch just get's
turned off? What if you are wrong my dear atheist, what if there is
something that happens at the moment of death. The writer of Hebrews
wrote this: "And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.." Heb 9:27.
What if he is right my atheist friend? Can you stand before God on your day of judgment having rejected Him? The only unpardonable sin is the rejection of Jesus Christ
as Lord and Savior. I would not want to be in your shoes on that day.
Are you 100% sure that God does not exist? Because if not, I would
really take some time and learn about Jesus. Meet the real Jesus, not
the one portrayed on the History or Discovery channel. Start with the
gospel of John. Jesus said seek and you shall find. I think that the
atheist community is in a dilemma, because if their theory proofs to be
wrong, there is much to fear. Eternal separation from God. Even the
unbelievers are still getting blessed by God living on this earth, which
will not always be.
The Bible teaches that
today is the day of salvation. Seek God before it is to late. I hope
pray that any proclaiming atheist reads this to at least investigate who
Jesus is, why He came and died on the cross for the sin of the world.
The glorious promise of eternal life
He gave to all of those who believe in Him by faith. Jesus said: "Enter
by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that
leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. "Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it." Mat 7:13, 14.
Jesus does not want anyone to perish but have everlasting life. Are you
sure that when you die that there is nothing? Think about it.
fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, They
have done abominable works, There is none who does good." Psalm 14:1
in Jesus are not any better than anybody else, we are sinners just like
everybody else. We are fallen creatures that were forgiven by Jesus
Christ through His sacrifice on the cross. Heaven is not full of good
people, but of forgiven sinners.
God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John
