No atheist is actually an atheist. Some of the actually recognize this, and call themselves deists, or agnostic. The question in an atheist’s conscience is not truly whether or not there is a God, but whether or not that God is the same as the God represented in Biblical Scriptures.
In politics, this issue rises often, because without a relationship with God the atheist (or deist, or agnostic, or. . . ) has a need to feel the void in their spritual character. When government tries to do this, and be the “god” to all citizens, it comes across a major obstacle. Government can’t be all things to all people when God is already filling that role. Hence, the reason that socialism is a Godless political ideology. To exist it must eliminate the competition.
Interestingly, when the “God Debate” arises in religious or political debates, the self-proclaimed atheist (or deist, or agnostic) often responds angrily, doing all they can to discount the very Creator that believes in them and loves them. Not all non-believers do this, mind you. Some recognize the principles of Judeo-Christian teachings. For a few it is just a matter of whether or not they are ready and willing to allow their “self” to die, and be reborn as a believer.
Pastor Ray Comfort, in his latest book (as well as others he has written) has taken the time to address the atheist’s conscience. Ray Comfort’s book, You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence but You Can’t Make Him Think (available at WNDbooks.com), answers actual questions from atheists to Pastor Comfort’s blog at Atheist Central.
The book is a “Darwin Day” gift to those people who reject the notion that there is a God out there that loves them.
Ray Comfort is the co-host with Kirk Cameron of the nationally sydicated TV show “The Way of the Master,” as well as being a leader in the evangelical Christian Community. His ministry, Living Waters Ministries, is active in the evangelical community and hosts conferences and teaches Christians how to evangelize. Ray has been a guest on news shows like ABC’s Nightline debating the existence of God, and now will be on Political Pistachio Radio tonight to do the same.
Come one, come all, atheists, agnostics, deists, and Christians alike. All calls will be accepted, all arguments will be responded to. Join us tonight at 7:00 pm Pacific Time/10:00 pm Eastern on Political Pistachio Radio as we welcome guest Ray Comfort, author of You Can Lead an Atheist to Evidence, But You Can’t Make Him Think.
