The Word of God is so powerful and so convicting with its truths that one would think no man could resist its compass. Sadly, however, there are those who don’t believe in “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers” (Acts 3:13a). These are the men and women who claim from their own knowledge and/or their own findings that there is no God.
The New Atheists say that man does not need God for morality, and some push this agenda as if they are trying to make disciples. The first thing that must be pointed out about the people with this mindset is this: they are not Atheist. They are Antitheist. They are Anti God of the Bible.
You see, real Atheists will say they don’t believe in any gods— plural. People who truly practice Atheism don’t care if we believe in the God of the Bible or Buddha; they are happy in their ignorance and do not want it disrupted. Therefore they stay out of arguments concerning God or gods.
Make no mistake about it: the pioneers of Antitheism are out to steal souls away from the God of the Bible, and it is Him that they attack. Let’s bring to attention a very basic fallacy of their ideology. Why would the Antitheist spend so much energy to convince you that you have believed a fantasy? To be true to their atheism, it would be a horrible waste of time on their part. If it is truly fantasy to them, then why bother to argue for something that they perceive does not exist?
I think it was said best in this statement: “Who is more irrational? A man who believes in a God he doesn’t see, or a man who’s offended by a God he doesn’t believe in?” The fact is that man does indeed need God to show us the standard of morality. Otherwise we would be wondering to the lust of our own desires no matter what the outcome or who we hurt.
