Just Wondering About Atheists

I was visiting another blog that has frequently visits from atheists and I was curious at how many atheists were on this blog attacking the writers, attacking God, attacking the Christian worldview, etc.  It got me thinking about this.

First, I don’t spend my time looking for atheists blogs.  They would be pointless.  Rather than “defending” atheism, they spend their time mainly attacking the Christian God.  No doubt they hate all religion and all “gods” but they especially hate Jesus Christ.  Their “proofs” have long been proven false but they continue to spit out their lies.  The fact of Romans 1:18, 25 is true of them.

Secondly, I ponder why do atheists go searching for blogs or sites that defend theism?  If God does not exist, what is the point?  Why worry about what is not true?  Why not just preach the virtues of atheism and let the results speak for themselves?  If atheism leads to a righteous life, a moral life, a life free from guilt and shame, teachings that lead drug addicts from addiction, porn addicts to freedom, homosexuals from their bondage, liars to the truth, etc. why not preach this and let the “gospel” of atheism do the rest?

Instead, atheists spend their day hating the God that they say does not exist.  I don’t doubt that there are practical atheists out there who claim to believe in God but deny Him by their actions and their lives (Psalm 14; Titus 1:16).  Yet practical atheists would claim to be theists.  They deny God by their actions but they don’t spend their time trying to disprove God.  Their lives do.  So called true atheists spend their time hating God, despising Him, mocking Him, and seeking to tear down others belief in Him.

But again why?  I point out that I don’t go searching for atheists blogs to defend theism.  In actuality, I don’t need to do that.  They know God exists.  The Bible points this out in Romans 1:21.  All people know God exists.  They can’t know Him by this inward knowledge but they know there is a God.  Yet Romans 1:18 tells us that people love their sin and so they suppress the truth of God because they don’t want to submit to Him but instead to rebel against Him and His authority.  However, mankind cannot escape and will face God in final judgement after they die (Hebrews 9:27).  Our only hope is the gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16-17; 3:21-26; 5:1).

The fact remains that the virtues of atheism are not there.  It is not atheists who are helping the homeless in Chicago.  It is not the atheists who are helping drug addicts in Atlanta.  It is not the atheists who are providing drinking water in African villages.  It was not atheists who poured into Haiti following the disasters there.  It is not atheists who are speaking out against the slavery of women in southeast Asia to sex trades.  Where are the atheists who hate abortion and want it abolished?  Where are the atheists who turn men around who use to beat their wives into men who are righteous and good?  Where are the atheists who can take their gospel to the alcoholic and see them transformed?

This is what Christ does all the time.  He makes all things new (2 Corinthians 5:17).
