Should Christians Evangelize Atheists?

Atheism is the belief that God or gods do not exist. An atheist is therefore one who does not believe that the universe and all of creation are the result of intelligent design or a supernatural Being.
Many atheists will also provide arguments and theories such as evolution or the Big Bang as evidence to the world that God or gods cannot possibly exist.

For many years, atheism has been growing in almost every continent around the world. China is known to have the most atheists in the world, then Europe, the Americas and finally Africa. The growth in the atheist demographic has been due to the influence of evolution education and various scientific researches which are ironically conducted by other atheists. The theory of evolution is taught at a young age and many evolutionist theories are propagated as truth and fact despite their inconsistencies and irrationalities. Ultimately, the more evolution is embraced, the more religion becomes unpopular.

The Bible tells us that creation itself, such as the stars, the planets, the animals, the plants and all forms of life is evidence that a Creator exists. The existence of life as well as the nature and order of the universe testify to the existence of an intelligent Designer.
Romans 1:20 says: “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities — His eternal power and divine nature — have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”

However atheists will not submit to the rational belief that the universe did not create itself from nothing. Many atheists will not admit the fact that intelligent design exists.
Instead, atheists will seek to educate and defend atheism and every scientific theory or research that supports their belief and argument that God does not exist.

Therefore atheism is an anti-God concept. It is a concept which the devil has created to deceive people, but it is also a concept that even the devil himself does not believe.

Psalms 14:1 says “The fool says in his heart ‘There is no God’…”
Therefore whilst atheism is a foolish concept, because it believes that creation does not have a creator – atheism is still a dangerous concept because of its arguments, its deception and its continued growth.

 

Should Christians Evangelize Atheists?
Atheism is one of the most extreme expressions of man’s rebellion against God. It also expresses man’s desire to totally live without God.
Atheism exists because of a fallen world. Man is sinful by nature. Man is not born good but instead he is born a sinner (Romans 3:10,23).
As sinners we have an inbuilt nature to rebel against God and to contradict the things of God. The theories of evolution and the Big Bang contradict the Biblical account of creation and provide the deceptive argument that life and the universe existed from nothing, instead of God.

God desires that Christians unashamedly evangelize anyone who is spiritually lost and has not believed in the gospel (Romans 1:16).
Christians are required to evangelize the atheist just as much as they should evangelize to a witchdoctor, a Buddhist, a prostitute, a cultist, a Greek, a Jew, or any person who has not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord & Saviour.
Mark 16:15 says we are to “proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.”
Therefore there is no created human being who should be excluded from hearing the gospel of Jesus Christ or excluded from understanding the divine character and nature of God. If we are all sinners, then all are in need of the gospel and therefore all need a saving relationship with God.
Jesus Christ was crucified for the entire world, including atheists, so that whoever believes in Christ will not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).
God is patient toward everyone, including the atheist and He does not want anyone to perish (2 Peter 3:9).

Ultimately as every Christian shares the gospel with people, whether they are atheist or not, it is the duty alone of the Holy Spirit to bring conviction of sin and to convert the sinner as the gospel / word of God is shared (John 16:8, Romans 1:16).

Whilst most atheists are prone to argue, debate or ferociously defend his/her atheism, this should not deter Christians from sharing the word of God to people who oppose the scriptures. If anyone is willfully living in rebellion to God (whether atheist or not), then that person must graciously and lovingly be given the gospel of Christ and make an informed spiritual choice whether to accept God or not.
Jesus Himself constantly encountered people who opposed God’s word but yet He continued to focus on sharing and defending God’s word to anyone who would be willing to listen.
According to the Scriptures, Christians should be able to defend and contend for the Christian faith (Jude 1:3; 1 Peter 3:15).
It is therefore important for every Christian to seek the guidance of the Holy Spirit when engaging with atheists or anyone who has beliefs which are contrary to Christianity.
Many testimonies exist from former atheists of how they eventually converted to Christianity through the faithfulness and obedience of those Christians who unashamedly share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

Is Atheism More Rational Than Belief in God?

Is belief in God rational? Atheists will say that the reason they don’t believe in God is because they haven’t yet seen the evidence that a God or gods exists.
Atheists go as far as saying that the belief in God or in gods is irrational, delusional, childish and even dangerous.
Indeed whilst many dangerous and strange things have been done in the name of religion, such an argument cannot be used as proof that God does not indeed exist.

No one looks at a painting and wonder if there is a painter. Nor does anyone discover a watch on the ground and wonder if there is a watchmaker. So the question is: why would anyone look at creation and wonder if there is a Creator? Why would anyone look at creation and come to the conclusion that a Creator does not exist? Therefore, is there any rationality behind atheism?

Does The Universe Have A Beginning and Where Did It Come From?
Most scientists believe that the universe had a beginning. Therefore if the universe had a beginning, then there must have been a first cause for that beginning. The universal law of cause and effect states that for every effect there is a definite cause. Likewise for every cause, there is a definite effect.
If the word “nothing” can be defined as the absence of space, matter and time, then would it be rational thinking to believe that the universe came from nothing? Would it be rational to believe that nothing can create something? Has anyone ever seen nothing create something?
However, many atheists would have people believe that the universe came from nothing. For example, well-known cosmologist and atheist Lawrence Krauss is on record for teaching that the universe came from nothing. He is not alone in believing this theory.
So is this belief that the universe came from nothing really rational? Has there ever been a recorded and observed scientific experiment to reveal that indeed something visible and tangible can be derived or produced from nothing? The answer is NO. There is no evidence that nothing can create or produce something. Yet many atheists irrationally believe so.

Does Everything In The Universe Exist By Chance / Accident?
Atheists would have people believe that the universe existed by mere chance or by accident over billions of years, and that life came into existence through the process of evolution.
Imagine there was a big explosion. What are the chances that a sudden explosion of gases and chemicals will produce water, life, creatures, houses, cars, buildings and so on? If this question seems irrational – that’s because it is irrational to believe that a big explosion can create anything as complex as the universe.
Atheists traditionally believe in the Big Bang theory. However recently a Forbes article has certain scientists claiming a new theory that the Big Bang wasn’t the beginning after all.
Again the atheist must be challenged with the rationality of whether or not everything happens by chance or accident. For example, is a painting or a wrist watch created by chance or accident?
So how is it possible then that something as complex as the universe can be the result of chance? How can it be possible that every single life-form on earth is the result of an accident?
If the universe and everything in it are the result of an accident – then why does it seem that all things are subject to scientific, mathematical and natural laws.
The fact that laws of nature exist – this means that there must be a law-giver. Laws cannot exist without a law-giver. It would be irrational to believe that life and the universe are a product of random chance.

Why Don’t Atheists Know The Origin of Life?
The question that most atheists cannot answer is the issue of the origin of life. If atheists cannot answer the question of: what is the origin of life – then how can they claim that there is no God? How can they prove that God is not the source of all life?
Would it be rational to believe that non-life can create life? Is there scientific and observable evidence of non-life creating living organisms or any kind of life?
There is however undeniable evidence that life gives birth to life – or that life is sourced from a life source.
Therefore if the pattern is undeniable and true that life creates life – then it should be rational to belief that all life on earth began with an intelligent living Being – God.
So would it really be rational to believe that life originated from a non-living source? Would it really be rational to believe that a non-living source can create anything as complex as the universe or the life-forms on earth?

Is There Evidence of a Creator?
Even though the atheist has never seen or spoken to Leonardo da Vinci, the atheist believes that Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa.
It would be irrational if the atheist claimed that Leonardo da Vinci never ever existed at all – and that the Mona Lisa, with every detailed brushstroke and colour was designed and created from nothing – or by mere random chance.
Romans 1:20 says “For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”
According to Romans 1:20, the evidence of a Creator is in the fact that creation exists. Just as a painting is evidence of a painter, the universe and all of creation is evidence that there is a Creator who created the universe. We may not have visibly seen the Creator but we see evidence of His existence through His creation.

Psalms 14:1 says that “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God’…”
This scripture is not saying that an atheist is unintelligent. However it is exposing the irrationality of atheism. If anything that is man-made has its creator – then why not believe that nature and all of the universe have a Creator?

So is the atheist rational in his/her disbelief in the existence of God? Does it make sense to believe that a creation of any kind can exist without a creator? Is it rational to believe that nothing can create something? Does it make sense to believe all of life on earth is the result of one big accident?
Certainly not.

A Message To Atheists
Be open to the rationality and the sensibility that a Creator of the universe exists. Remember that there is no scientific or observable evidence that nothing can create something. Be open to the fact that for every effect, there is a cause. Be open to the fact that the universe was not created by accident.

 

DO YOU WANT TO BE A CHRISTIAN or A FOLLOWER OF JESUS CHRIST???

1. ACKNOWLEDGE: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
This means that we have all broken God’s laws and God’s 10 Commandments like those mentioned in Exodus 20:1-17. For example, if you have told a lie; if you have stolen something; if you have lusted after somebody or if you have coveted. This means you are guilty of breaking at least one or more of God’s 10 Commandments. Breaking God’s commandments makes us sinners. The fact that we are sinners who have broken God’s law means that we are accountable to God who is the Lawgiver. Romans 6:23 says that “the wages of sin is death BUT the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”
You must acknowledge that you are a sinner who has broken God’s commandments and that you therefore need Jesus in your life.

2. REPENT: “Unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3), “Repent therefore and be converted that your sins may be blotted out” (Acts 3:19)
Repenting means: to change your mind; a sincere turning away, in heart, mind and action;
Therefore God wants you to repent of sinful values and of sinful living. God wants you to decide to
follow Him and to make Jesus the Lord of your life.

3. CONFESSION: “If we confess our sins. He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9)
God is a forgiving God. God will forgive any sin that you have done because Jesus died for ALL your sins and to set you free from the bondage of all types of sin in your life.

4. BELIEVE: “For 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 3:16).
You must believe that ONLY Jesus can save you and restore your relationship with God. You must believe that Jesus is the ONLY way by which you can have everlasting life and escape from eternal separation from God. You must believe that Jesus died on the cross for you and resurrected from the grave.
“He came to His own, and His own did not receive him, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name” (John 1:11-12)
By faith, You must receive Jesus as Your Lord & Savior and therefore; you become a child of God; you become born again; you become a Christian; you restore your broken relationship with God

 

Why Not Make Your Eternal Decision NOW?

We become born again Christians by GRACE through FAITH or TOTAL TRUST in Jesus Christ as our Lord & Savior (Galatians 3:26) & (Ephesians 2:8,9). Salvation is a FREE gift received through FAITH in Christ.

PLEASE NOTE: You can choose to pray in your own words. This prayer is a sample prayer and it is only an EXPRESSION of your faith, belief & trust in Jesus. Salvation is by GRACE through FAITH or BELIEVING in Christ Jesus as your Lord & Saviour.

“Lord Jesus, I thank You for Your love. I thank You that You died on the cross for me and resurrected so that I may have life through You.
I confess Lord that I have sinned against You and today I ask You to forgive me of all of my sins, past present and future.
Today I repent and have decided to follow you. Thank you for forgiving all my sins.
From this moment, come into my life Lord Jesus & take full control of my life. I want to follow You Jesus and I want to follow Your ways. Save me and from today, make me the person You want me to be.
I receive You Lord Jesus right now by faith. I trust You as my Lord and Savior – Amen”

Is Atheism a Religion?

The common definition for Atheism is a disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods.
Many atheists would therefore argue that atheism is not a religion because a religion requires God or gods. This argument is however incorrect.
There are various religions that are non-theistic. Non-theistic religions have an apathy or silence towards the subject of God or gods. Buddhism is an example.

Oxford Dictionaries defines Religion as a pursuit or interest followed with great devotion; A particular system of faith and worship

Merriam Webster defines Religion as a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith

Dictionary.com defines Religion as a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects:

Therefore it’s clear from the above definitions that a religion can also be a system of beliefs that does not necessarily involve the worship of God or gods.

In the case of Atheism it would be logical to therefore express that Atheism IS a religion because of the following reasons:

Atheism Requires Faith
The main component of all religions is that a certain amount of faith is required in order to be part of that particular religion.
Therefore a person must have faith in the belief systems and the principles that guide that religion.
Atheism itself IS a belief system. It is a belief that God does not exist. This belief system is opposed to the beliefs of more than 80% of the world’s population who believe in God or gods while atheists consist of only less than 10% of the global population.
Atheism is a belief system because it takes faith to believe in their doctrine of evolution and creation.
Atheists cannot prove the origin of life but yet they have faith in the concept that life and the universe was created from nothing.
Atheists have faith that evolution occurred yet they do not have any observable and testable evidence for evolution.
Therefore atheism requires faith in physically unprovable claims.

Atheists Have Their Own Prophets
Charles Darwin is the prophet of atheism & evolution. Without Darwin’s theory of evolution it would be safe to say that atheists would have very little references for their atheistic beliefs.
Darwinism is the reason why people become atheists. What atheists forget is that the theory of evolution is a “theory”. Darwin has admitted to lacking evidence. Evolution is NOT fact. It is NOT truth. Evolution itself is full of historical assumptions, presumptions and hypothesis made by men who cannot prove their claims.
However just as every religion has its prophet or founder – Darwin is the prophet of evolution and atheism. Even though Darwin could not prove his own theories, atheists are willing to believe in Darwinism without question or doubt.

Atheism Has Its Own Preachers
Christians have often asked atheists this question: If God doesn’t exist, why do they care if someone worships Him?
The reason Christians ask this question is because they have observed the effort in which atheists seek to convert and rebut Christianity.
Atheists have made a concerted effort to prove to religious people that God does not exist.
It seems contradictory and hypocritical that atheists would try to impose their own belief system of atheism on people who believe in God.
Therefore atheism just like any other religion, has its own preachers. These atheist preachers seek to convert religious people into atheists.

Atheists Have Their Own Doctrines
Examples of atheist doctrines would be the theory of evolution, the big bang theory, abiogenesis and the many historical and unprovable assumptions of how life and the universe came into existence.
Despite lacking evidence for their historical assumption, most atheists are extremely loyal to their belief system and doctrine. They have faith in their doctrines and they have faith that Darwin’s theories are correct.

 

What Does the Bible Say?
Romans 1:20-23 says “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things”.

The Bible is clear that atheists suppress the existence of God. It actually takes MORE faith for a person to lack belief in God than for that same person to believe God exists.
Atheism is therefore a not just a lack of belief in God – it is a religion.

 

Are People Born Atheists?

Some atheists have argued that every baby is born an atheist. They claim that a child is “brainwashed” from birth into believing in God or gods because of the child’s social and cultural background. Therefore the argument is that children only believe in God or gods because of the influence of parents, culture, geographic location and the dominant religion prevailing as the child is growing.
So the question is this: Are babies born atheists?

An Oxford University study that was conducted internationally for 3 years, set out to establish whether belief in divine beings and an afterlife were ideas simply learned from society or integral to human nature.
The Oxford study discovered that all humans are naturally predisposed to believe in gods and life after death. The study also discovered that human thought processes were “rooted” to religious concepts such as the existence of supernatural agents or gods, and the possibility of an afterlife or pre-life.
In addition one of the studies from Oxford concluded that children below the age of 5 found it easier to believe in some “superhuman” properties than to understand human limitations.
Therefore the study reveals that people are NOT born atheists but they are naturally predisposed to believe in the supernatural.

Romans 1:20-21 tells us that the proof of the existence of God is in His creation or in the things that God has made. The scripture also reveals that man is “without excuse” when it pertains to the existence of God.
Therefore atheism is not a natural process of thinking. The human mind is not designed to have a disbelief in God or in the supernatural.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 says that God has “put eternity into man’s heart”. This means that in every human soul God has put a desire for the things that are eternal and not just the things that are natural or temporary. This means that every human being is capable of discovering the eternal God and the eternal things of God and His kingdom. Every human soul yearns for something beyond just the natural or physical.
The major problem with agnosticism and atheism is that there is a deliberate SUPPRESSION of the existence of God that takes place in the heart of the agnostic and atheist.
God is purposely suppressed in the heart and mind of the atheist for various reasons. For example – an atheist may not like the idea of being accountable for sin; the atheist may have a wrong concept of God’s character; the atheist is deceived into believing that life is “better” without God in the equation, so suppressing belief in God is seen as the ideal coping mechanism for his/her life.

The evidence that atheists suppress God, is in their passionate and vehement opposition of God, Christianity and anything that promotes the things of God.
Therefore the conclusion is that atheists seem to hate God and so the question becomes this: If God doesn’t exist – why do atheists oppose and hate Him?
Ray Comfort says “Atheists don’t hate fairies, leprechauns, or unicorns because they don’t exist. It is impossible to hate something that doesn’t exist. Atheists hate God because HE DOES EXIST”.

Nobody is born an atheist. What atheists need to do is open their hearts to a loving God who is willing to embrace them and give them eternal life through His Son Jesus Christ.
Atheists needs to have a humble heart and to understand that God loves them and He wants to reveal Himself to them if they approach Him in humility and faith.

Is There Evidence of God?

How can we know that God exists? Is there natural or scientific evidence that we can point to, concerning the argument for intelligent design? Can science prove or disprove the existence of God?

Below are several reasons that scientifically prove that God exists

1. The DNA Code
Bill Gates the Founder of Microsoft said that “DNA is like a software program – only much more complex than anything we’ve ever devised”.
Even Richard Dawkins who is a well-known atheist has admitted to the possibilities of intelligent design and he stated himself that genes are coded information and that genes even look like computer information.
Antony Flew was a scientist who spent his entire life in support of evolution. However when he studied the findings of genetic information in DNA, he eventually became a creationist.
The DNA code is known as the instruction book for life. DNA is a language and an information storage system.
Therefore just like a software program was designed by an intelligent designer, it makes sense that the DNA code which is far more complex was designed by a Someone who is super-intelligent.
It’s also important to note that all types of codes and all types of languages are designed or created by a conscious mind. Examples of symbolic codes can be music symbols, binary code, or blueprints. Examples of languages can be HMTL, C++, hieroglyphics, Hebrew or the English language.
Therefore all instructions, all languages, all symbols and all codes are information which originate from a conscious and intelligent source. It would make sense then to conclude that DNA comes from an intelligent source.
Imagine if you tried to convince Bill Gates that his Windows operating system could program itself into a digital information format, manufacture a case for itself, assemble a hard drive, motherboard and power supply and then run its own application software without any intelligence from an outside source.
Therefore the same conclusion is with the DNA code. The DNA code did not just create itself but DNA is evidence of a super-intelligent designer. In this case – God.

 

 

2. The Earth & Creation
The Earth is the only known planet that sustains life for humans, animals and plants. The Earth is perfect in its size; in its position in the solar system and in the gases that it contains in order to make life possible.
If the Earth was close to the sun then we would all burn up.
If the Earth was further away from the sun then we would all freeze.
Therefore the Earth’s distance from the sun is perfect while it perfectly spins and rotates around the sun.
It contains the perfect mixture of gases for life. It contains water for which no type of life-form can be sustained without a measure of water from human, to plant, to animal life.
There are not only billions of humans, but there are millions of animal and plant species whose biology and structure speak of intelligent design and not coincidence.
The structure of the Earth is therefore evidence of an intelligent designer who created the Earth.

 

3. The Laws of Nature
The universe operates by uniform laws of nature. We can count on the rotation of the earth every 24 hours. We can count on the laws of gravity remaining consistent. We can count on the earth being sustained in its exact position from the sun.
In fact we live in a universe that abides by the rules of mathematics. Therefore coincidence doesn’t exist.
The fact that the universe operates by laws is reflection that there is a lawgiver. The universe operates under the laws and instructions of someone intelligent.

 

4. The Universe had a Beginning
Scientists agree that the universe had a beginning. There are differences of course regarding who / what caused the beginning of the universe.
However, nothing CANNOT produce something.
The complexity of the structure of the universe, including life on Earth, is evidence that there was an intelligent mind behind the beginning of the universe.
Nobody has ever observed or tested “nothing” producing something.
It makes sense then that the universe had a first cause. That first cause was an intelligent being.

Is there evidence of God? Yes there is.

 

Romans 1:20
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

Psalms 104:24-25
How many are your works, LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.
There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number— living things both large and small.

Genesis 1:1
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

 

3 Reasons Why Atheists Lie to Themselves?

An intelligent person will create a computer, with its hardware and software and sometimes artificial intelligence – yet you will discover that nobody will dispute the fact that a computer was designed by an intelligent being.
After all – it doesn’t make sense to assume that a computer which has all its physical parts working together in unison, just evolved on its own from nothing. Neither does it make sense to assume that the software programs working inside that computer simply evolved or existed without the need of an intelligent being.
Yet the atheist will deny for example, that a human being is the product of an Intelligent Creator.
As humans we have a body (just like a computer has hardware). As humans we also have DNA (just like computers have software programs). Humans also have a mind and freewill (just like how a computer might have artificial intelligence).
Just as a computer was designed by an intelligent designer with a purpose – it’s also the same for all of creation including human beings.
A people we were designed by an Intelligent Designer with a purpose. Our entire make-up is not the result of an accident or a chaotic incident or an enormous coincidence.
Just as it would be ridiculous to presume that a computer has no intelligent designer – it would be utterly ridiculous to presume that the universe and all of creation does not have an Intelligent Creator.

Therefore in the face of all the evidence that God exists and in the face of just plain common sense that every design has a designer – why do atheists deny the evidence? Why do atheists lie to themselves? Here’s why…

1. Atheists Experience Cognitive Dissonance
Cognitive Dissonance is a mental conflict which occurs when current beliefs are contradicted by new information or when current wrong beliefs are contradicted with the truth.
So in the case of the atheist – the atheist believes that nothing made everything – which is a lie?
Even though there is no observable or testable evidence, they believe that the universe and all living things are the product of evolution and not intelligent design.
So when the atheist is confronted with the truth that the universe and living things did not create themselves – just as a computer cannot create itself – the tendency for the atheist is to deny common sense rather than accept the truth.
The atheist chooses to believe that a computer, an aeroplane and a building are the result of intelligent beings. However they refuse to believe that a human, a bird or the entire universe are the result of an Intelligent Creator.

2. Atheists Love the Pleasures of Sin
Atheists lie to themselves because they love the pleasure of sin. They will not give up their sins. They love the pleasures of sin so much that the possibilities of being accountable for sin is something they would rather deny.
This is why the atheist not only denies the existence of God but atheists also deny the existence of sin itself. Atheists do not believe that there is such a thing called “sin”. They also do not believe in the existence of good and evil.
They would rather lie to themselves by denying the existence of sin or good and evil because admitting to the existence of sin would make the atheist morally and spiritually accountable.

3. Atheists Suppress God in Their Life
Think about it. Why do atheists try to convert religious people to atheism? Why do they attempt to mock God and Christianity?
If they don’t believe in God, why do they feel the need to oppose anything that resembles the values of God & Christianity?
Psalms 14:1 says “A fool says in his heart “There is no God…”. Now that scripture isn’t saying that atheists can’t think or that they are not intelligent. However this scripture exposes the fact that it is foolishness for a person to deny the existence of a Creator in the face of such evidence.
Romans 1:20 says that no one is without excuse when it comes to the existence of God because nature itself and all of creation testifies that God exists.
It is foolishness to believe that every design does NOT have a designer.
Romans 1:22 says “Claiming to be wise, they became fools”.

Atheists should therefore be honest with themselves. They need to re-think the idea that the universe is a result of chance and coincidence. The complexity of the universe and life on earth is not an accident.
The atheist needs to consider the existence of God.

Why Did God Kill Innocent People in the Old Testament?

The atheist Richard Dawkins in his book called the God Delusion describes God as being a moral monster who is a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser.
Atheists basically argue that the God in the Old Testament killed many innocent people beginning from the flood that destroyed the earth to the people in Sodom & Gomorrah and then also the destruction of the Canaanite people where even women and children were destroyed.
Therefore these are the arguments that both atheists and skeptics put forward as an argument against the God of the Bible and justify that such a God cannot exist.

So the question is this is – is God a moral monster? Why did God command the death and destruction of people including children? Does God have the right to kill innocent people?

 

 

The above questions can be answered by understanding the following things:

Nobody is Innocent
There are no innocent people in the world. Everyone is guilty of some kind of wrong doing. Everyone has told a lie at some point in his/her life; everyone has had an impure thought; everyone has done some kind of wrong against his/her neighbor.
Before a just and holy God – nobody is innocent. Romans 2:23 says “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”. Romans 3:10 says that there is nobody who is righteous.

Everyone Will Face Death
Everyone will die at some point in his/her life. Death came into existence because of the sin of Adam and Eve. Death is a curse that came upon the earth in which the Bible says “It’s appointed for man to die once, and after that comes death” according to Hebrews 9:27.
Therefore we will all face death whether it’s through sickness, a car accident or through old age. The important thing to understand is that it’s up to God to choose when we die and how we die.

Why Did God Destroy People?
Therefore when it came to situations where God would destroy people in the Old Testament, God was both sovereign and justified in doing so.
For example, when God caused the whole earth to flood with the exception of Noah and his family, the Bible says that the intents of man during Noah’s time was continuously evil (Genesis 6:5). Mankind had become so morally & spiritually corrupted in his conscience that his every thought and action was evil. Mankind had become irredeemable, unrepentant and his conscience was seared.
God’s only option to save humanity at that time was to flood the earth and save Noah & his family because they found grace in God’s eyes and they were not corrupted to the extent of the rest of mankind.

Another example is with the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah. Before the destruction of these cities, Abraham pleaded with God and interceded for the people that if there were at least a few righteous people in those cities that God would spare Sodom & Gomorrah from utter destruction (Genesis 18:16-33).
However there was none found righteous or innocent in Sodom & Gomorrah and so God destroyed them not only because they were sinners but because they were unrepentant and their sinful lifestyle would be infectious and detrimental to those people who lived outside those cities.

The same can be said also when God commanded the killing of the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites (Deuteronomy 20:16-18).
These people had abominable and detestable cultures. The Canaanites for example were said to be people who had a culture of child sacrifice, beastiality and incest. These people were irredeemable and unrepentant.
God commanded their destruction so that they would not spread their abominable practices and culture to the Israelites.

Hopefully from the above explanation we can learn something about the nature of God and the nature of mankind. God is a just and sovereign God and He has the right to judge His own creation as He sees fit. Everyone will die and it’s up to God to choose when we will die and how we will die.
However, it is not God’s desire that anyone should perish in hell but instead His desire is that all people should repent and come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:9).
Therefore the most important thing is to have a relationship with God by believing in Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour because it is Jesus who paid for the sins of mankind on the cross (John 3:16).
Jesus Christ is the ONLY innocent person to have lived on the earth. He was without sin, and therefore this qualified Him to pay for our sins in order to redeem us (2 Corinthians 5:21).

 

Why are Atheists Obsessed with God?

Why do atheists care, if God doesn’t exist? Why do they spend time tweeting, arguing, debating and writing articles about a God whom they believe does not exist?

They say they don’t believe in God but yet they fight Him so much. They say they don’t believe in God but they talk about Him and speak against Him almost every day.

You never hear an atheist complain about santa claus, fairies, unicorns or even superman. You know why? Because they don’t exist.

However, nothing makes atheists so mad and so sensitive as the idea that God actually exists.
The idea of God existing not only offends them – but the truth is that it might also frighten them.

So what is it about God that offends atheists? Why would an atheist be offended by a God who commands us to love our neighbor. Why would an atheist be offended by a God who seeks to save us and not to condemn us?
The truth is – the problem isn’t with God or with the nature of God – but the problem is with the condition of the human heart.

 

Atheists want a life without both moral and spiritual accountability. Atheists at their core do not desire accountability. They want a life where they do as they please without a sense of moral or spiritual accountability for their actions.

Romans 1:20 tells us that creation itself is evidence that God exists. The scripture also says that people are “without excuse” which means that nobody has an excuse for not believing in God.
Scientifically we know that nothing cannot create something. Which means that every design has a designer.

However, the atheist refuses to believe that there is an intelligent Designer of the universe. Instead, the atheist suppresses the truth; he suppresses common sense; and he suppresses the reality of God in his life.
Therefore the atheist fights God because to believe in God would be to acknowledge that one is morally and spiritually accountable for their actions.

Message to An Atheist
So to the atheist I would say – don’t fight God. Instead surrender to Him. God loves you and He wants you to get to know Him.
The evidence of God is in creation & nature (Romans 1:20). The universe is not a random accident but there is an intelligent mind behind creation. The evidence of God is in the things He has made.
The fact that you fight the existence of God do much is proof in itself that your own conscience knows that God exists.
So take the time to know God and to seek a relationship with the Creator of the universe.

Is The World Better Off Without Religion?

Somebody once said to me that the world would be better off without religion. The person sited his opinion that religion is the cause of many wars & problems not only in the present but also throughout history.
Many skeptics and atheists are of the belief that religion should be obsolete. They give examples that religion has caused slavery, discrimination, abuse and that religious leaders swindle their followers.
So is religion part of the problem? Would the world really be a better place without it?

The skeptics and atheists are not totally wrong. There are over 1 million religions that exist in the world and indeed, in many cases throughout history, there are many religions that have been the cause of many problems in the world.
Even today, many bad things are done in the name of one’s religion.

However, the root problems in the world isn’t religion.
The root cause of many problems in the world is the human condition or the sinful nature of man.

Think about it for a moment: If religion did not exist – would people really stop killing each other? If religion did not exist – would people really stop abusing & hurting one another? Would the stealing, the lying, the promiscuity or the hatred really and truly stop if there was no religion?
The truth is this – with or without religion – the world’s problems would still exist and the problems would continue because the problem is actually the human condition of man.

What is The Condition of Mankind?
Below are some scriptures that best describe mankind’s human condition.

Romans 3:23
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

Jeremiah 17:9
The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?

Matthew 15:19
For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies.

According to the scriptures, man is a sinner and his heart is desperately wicked. From man’s heart comes evil thoughts, adultery, and all kinds of sin.

So from these scriptures we can tell that religion is a by-product of the root problem – and the root problem of the world’s issues is the fact that man is a sinner.
The reason why we have over 1 million religions in the world is because of sin.
Religion is man’s attempt to reach God.

What mankind needs, is not religion – but at his core, man needs a genuine relationship with God.

Someone once said to me that there are 2 kinds of problems in the world. The first is one’s relationship with God and the second is one’s relationship with other people.
The greatest commandments that Jesus gave us pertain first to our love for God and secondly to our love for our neighbor.

When we understand that religion isn’t totally the problem – but the root problem is relationship – then we will get the correct perspective.

With or without religion every human being is a sinner and every human being is capable of deceit and wickedness.
Many religions exist in the world but we are not called to be religious. Instead we are called to have a relationship with God and love God and to love our neighbor.

Without a relationship with God – sin will reign in one’s life and the only way that any person can have a relationship with God is through believing and putting one’s faith in Jesus Christ as Lord & Saviour.

Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross for our sins so that we may be reconciled to God. Jesus paid the debt for our sins that we should have paid by dying on the cross for our sins & resurrecting on the third day.

John 1:12-13 says: But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

John 14:6
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Therefore life is not about religion or the lack of religion. True life is about having a genuine relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

DO YOU HAVE A GENUINE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?

8 Questions for Atheists

Having a chat with atheists can be very interesting. They claim to be more intellectual than Christians and they perceive Christians as being merely silly believers of a non-existent God.
However below are some questions for atheists. Ironically, most atheist avert answering these questions. Hopefully these questions can help atheists discover that life is beyond what we merely see in the natural – but to understand that even though they doubt God’s existence – they need to also look into the holes in their own belief system.

 

QUESTION 1
Is Atheism a LACK of Belief in God or a BELIEF that there is no God?
Most atheists generally claim that atheism is a LACK of belief in God or gods. This definition implies that atheists DO NOT have the ability to believe in God. This definition implies that atheists are INCAPABLE of believing in God. Is this true? Do atheists lack or have an inability to believe in God?
The Bible however explains that atheists do not lack a belief – but rather atheists SUPPRESS their belief in God. Every human being has a measure of faith and has the ability to believe. In every human being is the desire to worship someone or something. However the case with atheists is that they suppress God as the object of belief and replace God with anti-God belief systems.
Romans 1:20-23 says the following pertaining to atheism and the atheists suppression of belief in God: For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
Therefore atheists not only suppress the existence of God in their lives but through the theory of evolution they have replaced God with the worship of animals and worship of themselves. The theories of evolution is what has become the atheist’s religion.
Therefore atheism cannot be defined as a LACK of belief because the atheist simply CHOOSES to SUPPRESS his belief in God.
Atheism is a CHOICE. It is a belief system.

 

QUESTION 2
If God Exists Would You Become A Christian?
If the atheist were given all the “proof” and “evidence” that they needed pertaining to the existence of God, would he/she become a Christian?
This is a question that only individual atheists can answer themselves. However, the several atheists that I have personally asked this question have continued to either avert directly answering the question or continue to rebel against the idea that God exists.
The truth is, it takes humility to accept God. Pride is the seed of atheism. Atheism is the belief that life is “better” without God or that life does not need God. Atheism is a belief that man does not have to be accountable to a Greater Power than himself.
Therefore to accept God into one’s life requires personal humility and a sense that one is accountable to somebody greater than himself.
If you’re an atheist and you’re reading this take the time to ask yourself “If God Exists, Would You Become A Christian?”

 

QUESTION 3
How Do You Determine What’s Right & What’s Wrong?
To the atheist: Where does your sense of morality come from? How do you determine what is acceptable and what is unacceptable?
For example – if there are 2 atheists in a room: One atheist believes that abortion is wrong and another atheist believes that abortion is good. Which of these atheists is correct? Which one is right and which one is wrong?
For the Christian the question of morality and right or wrong comes from the Scriptures / the Bible. But for the atheist, the morality issue is very murky and always changing. For example, with the atheist, something as queer as beastiality can be wrong today and then the same act might be okay with him in the future. After all, atheists view themselves more as animals than humans. So the queer concept of beastiality is an open view even in their mindset.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 says “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
The issue of right and wrong comes only from one source – God.

 

QUESTION 4
How Do You Deal With Guilt & Sin in Your Life?
No matter what moral beliefs we may have, all people have felt guilt in their life. Every person including the atheist has felt that they have done wrong in their life and may have felt guilt or remorse or depression as a result.
The question however is: How do atheists deal with guilt and sin in their life? What do atheists do to remove guilt or sin in their hearts?
It is said that atheists are more likely to commit suicide than theists. This is believed due to the fact that the atheist belief system does not adequately account for purpose or meaning of life. Hence in the perception of the atheist life is not only temporary but it lacks no definitive meaning.
In the eyes of God & the Christian however, God has given meaning and purpose to people’s lives. Every person can find their meaning in life through a relationship with God.
God says the following in Isaiah 43:7“Everyone who is called by My name, Whom I have created for My glory; I have formed him, yes, I have made him.”
God created us to glorify Him. Glorifying God means that we acknowledge His existence and He is the object of our faith and worship. It also means that we live in order please and serve our Creator.
Without God, the issue of guilt and sin cannot be properly or adequately dealt with.
In Isaiah 43:25-26 God says “I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins. 26 Put Me in remembrance; Let us contend together; State your case, that you may be acquitted.”
God sent Jesus Christ to deal with our sin problem (John 3:16)

 

QUESTION 5
Do You Act According To What You Believe or According To What You Lack In Belief?
If atheism is simply a lack in belief in God, then do atheists act according to what they believe in – or do they act according to their lack of belief.
Everyone BELIEVES in something or someone. Our beliefs drive us. What we believe in affects our life and ultimately our destiny.
The truth is – we don’t have to see something in order to believe in it. All humans have the ability to believe.
Atheists have NO EVIDENCE that non-life can create life but yet they BELIEVE it.
Atheists have NO EVIDENCE as to HOW the universe was created yet they BELIEVE their theories.
Atheists have NO EVIDENCE dinosaurs turned into birds but yet they BELIEVE it.
The Bible describes belief / faith as the following: Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”.
Therefore the atheist does not behave according to what he lacks belief in – but he behaves according to what he believes in even if that belief is wrong.
The source of our faith however should not be our own intelligence – but the source of our faith should be God and His word.
True faith does not come by hearing the word of man but true faith comes by hearing the word of God.
Romans 10:17 says “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God”.

 

QUESTION 6
Can You Prove HOW the Universe Was Created?
There is no evidence pertaining to the evolutionist explanation for origin of life. All evolutionist explanations for the origin of life and the creation of the universe remain merely as theories, presumptions and hypothesis. The reason is because there is no scientific proof that for example, life may have evolved from non-life or that life resulted due to a “big bang”.
Therefore atheists cannot prove how the universe was created. It actually takes faith to believe some of the theories that evolutionists have suggested.
The Bible is clear as to who and how the universe was created. God created the universe.
Genesis 1:1-2In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

 

QUESTION 7
Can You Prove That God Does Not Exist?
When asked this question atheists argue that it’s not up to them to provide evidence for proof of God. The problem however with their argument is that if they claim God doesn’t exist then they should provide the evidence.
If atheists have never visited every planet; or if they have never been to every part of the universe; or if they have never seen every star in outer space – then how can they prove that God does not exist?
Atheism in itself is merely a CLAIM – it is NOT a fact.
Atheism is NOT merely a lack of belief – it is an NONFACTUAL CLAIM that God does not exist because there is no proof that He doesn’t exist.
Psalm 14:1 – The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good.

 

QUESTION 8
Do You Know Where You’re Going When You Die?
The atheist cannot prove that heaven and hell does not exist. However, what a tragic day it will be when the atheist discovers the existence of hell because there is no going back and there is no second chance.
Does heaven and hell exist? Yes these places do.
Ecclesiastes 3:11 says “He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end”.
God has put eternity in our hearts. This means that in our mind or soul God has placed within us a spiritual longing or desire for eternal fulfillment inside of us; God has put that sense inside us that there is more to life than the mere physical and natural things that we touch and see.
Every person whether Christian or atheist has an eternal desire or a search for purpose and meaning that is beyond the present. The issue is our interpretation of these desires and how we apply these desires.
Our sense of longing and meaning should be directed towards God who is the source. Without God there is no meaning or fulfillment in a person’s life.
Ultimately when people die, where they go will be an indication of who or what their source of fulfillment was.
Jesus is our fulfillment. Without Jesus Christ we are nothing. Jesus came that we may have abundant life.
John 10:10“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly”.
