Atheists on the Attack


My, my, my. According to this Christian Post article, the atheists are on the warpath.

Actually, militant atheists have always been on the warpath, but this particular crop seems especially aggressive. The late (and probably now in Hell) Madelyn Murray O'Hair filed her share of lawsuits, but this new crop of atheists is adding to the tally with aggressive marketing.

I'm not that bothered, really. It just makes for more witnessing opportunities and opportunities to bring God glory, especially when one of the atheists sees their folly, repents and becomes a believer in Christ. It's happened many, many times and no doubt will again.

It also provides for books like the one illustrated by the photo. Dr. Norman Geisler and Frank Turek co-authored "I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist" a few years back, and I had the privilege of having Frank on our radio program several times to discuss the topic. Here is Frank's website, where you can no doubt get a copy of the book in addition to your local Christian bookstore, Amazon or Christian Book Distributors. I recommend Norm and Frank's book wholeheartedly. It will provide a good chuckle, in addition to some very useful information to use when encountering the militantly unbelieving.

It kind of makes you wonder why they insist on throwing down the gauntlet. Doing so often accomplishes the exact opposite of what they want.
