It’s been my experience that there are a variety of evangelists in this world. All promote their own belief systems and all operate on a system of faith. Today I want to look at the evangelistic message of the Atheist and the Christian.
The Atheist says; there is no God because its totally illogical to believe in any such thing because you cannot prove there is a God. Their message in reality is that you have no real purpose in life. Your just an accident that happened. The universe within some inexplicable scientific mystery, just happened to go bang when a whole heap of nothing compressed into nothing, which created such a huge compression of nothing that it exploded into something and from out of nothing, this something was created which in turn formed the heavens and the earth and on earth some form of life was made which ended up being a whole variety of evolute life forms.
The Christian on the other hand says.. You do have a purpose in life. God created you with a purpose. God existed before the heavens and the earth and within his own plans and purposes for life, created the heavens and the earth and all the life forms within. God’s purpose for you is to live in relationship with him and with each other.
Both the Atheist and the Christian have a belief system as to how creation happened. The Atheist as much as they try cannot truly logically explain how something is made from nothing… and the Christian cannot explain how God happened to exist either….and truthfully the Bible doesn’t try to explain the existence of God, rather just says…yes God exists.
The question to ask is which is more plausible? The Atheist decries the implausibility of God and yet religiously pushes the barrow that its ever so plausible that nothing compressed nothing which created nothing, but the compression was so huge that it created a big bang….which created everything. OK……… then….
The message of the Atheist is that we speak the truth and our truth is that because your an accident, you have no purpose, no hope, no forgiveness, no point of being and there is no reality of morals.
The message of the Christian says…hey your made for a purpose, there is hope, there is forgiveness, there a point of being and there is a reality of morals which is the foundation of love and how to get along with each other…and by the way – this same God who caused all this to happen really loves you and wants you to know him also.
I know which message I think is more plausible… what about you?
