I was watching Wife Swap the other week and the dad of one of the families was an atheist. He had his own internet radio program that’s sole purpose was to dispute God and try to get others to believe the same as him. This was also his job, his only income, surviving on donations from listeners.
I’m a little confused though. Why do atheists (not all, I don’t want to generalize, but in my experience, those whom I’ve come across hold true to this perception) try to get others to also believe there is no God? I know why you’re thinking, why do Christians try to get others to believe as they do? Good question. We try to get you to believe as we do for your own salvation. It’s actually quite hard to talk to non-Christians about Christ. Hard, uncomfortable, and it sometimes leads to being left out, ridiculed, patronised, and even persecuted. But we still do it. We do it because we believe that if you don’t believe that Jesus died for our sins, and if you don’t follow him, then you will go to Hell. So we do it for you because we don’t want you to go to Hell.
I’m not sure why atheists try to sway us, it doesn’t get them anything, it doesn’t get us anything, I just can’t figure it out. So please, if you are an atheist, or agnostic, or what ever, please let me know.
