Atheists Are Trying To "Save" All Of Us Believers
"Remind them of these things, and solemnly charge them in the presence of God not to wrangle about words, which is useless and leads to the ruin of the hearers. Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth. But avoid worldly and empty chatter, for it will lead to further ungodliness, and their talk will spread like gangrene." (2 Timothy 2: 14-17a NASB)
After reading the article about Mr. Antony Flew, the 81 year old atheist who has changed his mind based on scientific discovery; I have ceased being concerned about the causes of those who have no particular faith to speak of.
I do believe I would be remiss not to mention that I have noticed a marked increase in the number of anti-God articles from our resident atheists in this forum. I have to smile when they call themselves “free-thinkers”. They are so trapped and wrapped in their personal agenda against all things Godly; it is actually a hole of circular thinking. If they just don’t believe in God then why go to all the trouble of trying to get everyone else to agree with them.
That is the other thing I smile at. They will expend vast amounts of effort to wail against something they say they don’t believe in, and then push very hard, through the use of their circular reasoning to get believers to walk away from God for what purpose; to follow them? To do what they tell us to do? To believe what they tell us we should believe? No. I have to smile.
I haven’t been able to read past the third paragraphs of most of their columns. I’m sorry. I just cannot read the repetitive refrain of “Jesus wasn’t real.” (a lie), or “The Bible is a book of fables.” (another lie), or Paul was this, or the Prophets were that. How many times will they write about there being no “extra-biblical” proofs (another lie), or the absence of archaeological substantiation (another lie). You all can check the links below and decide for yourself.
Yet, that’s another thing that brings a smile to my face. The ONLY God these guys rail against is the God of the Christians. Only the Christians are crazy and warped and intolerant and ignorant. That intrigues me. Why is only the God of the Jews and Christians worthy of all this atheistic spew?
I don’t see a whole lot of rant in opposition to Buddhism or Confucianism or Zoroastrianism, or transcendental meditation, or even Satanism. Of course Jesus did teach that “a house divided against itself cannot stand”. Even Christian churches split when portions of congregations disagree with other portions. My opinion is that atheists are simply doing the work of Satan. Satan has always been the arch nemesis of the True God. Since atheists mostly rail against the True God then, for the most part, they are simply the militant physical arm of Satan’s spiritual war against God.
This interests me. Just as Moses, the Prophets and the Apostles were the physical voice and conscience of God; trying to keep the people safe and saved; so the militant arm of Satan, in the form of Babylonians, Greeks, Romans, Nazis have been trying for centuries to destroy the message and the people of the True God of Heaven.
The atheist can spew all he wants about the “myth” of Jesus. There are millions upon millions of believers, scattered worldwide who personally know their Lord. These millions have to smile at such foolish talk.
The Apostle Paul was a pretty wise man. There is no need for any Christian, secure in his faith in Jesus, to be concerned over the desire of the unbelievers to create controversy and strife. It is a wise thing to listen. Accept what is true and reject what is false. Jesus taught us that our “Yes” should be “Yes” and our “No” should be “No” and should we go beyond that in our discussions we end up speaking for the devil.
So I will tell my atheistic colleagues here in Useless-Knowledge.com that I appreciate everything you believe you are trying to do. I believe you are trying to “save” all of us believers from believing something you believe to be a lie (Yes, I wrote that on purpose.)
But, take heart. We do not believe
a lie. We believe the truth, so rest easy; take a break; go fishing; enjoy
life; be assured we are safe and secure in the salvation of our Lord Jesus
Christ, the only and Living God.
