Some deny that atheism is a belief.
By common sense, and the ability to just see with your own two eyes, this statement is refuted. I walk into the bookstore and head to my favourite sections: religion, atheism, philosophy. I will see a pile of atheist books, oh but wait! These books are nothing, according to some atheists, but some author’s writing on the “lack of a belief” in God. That doesn’t make sense, I wouldn’t write a book on my “lack of belief” in unicorns, I write a book because I believe unicorns don’t exist, and I provide arguments to back that up.
It is also obvious that in these atheist books, and in their debates, they make arguments that they “believe” (big emphasis) prove that God does not exist, or that he likely does not exist.
It’s kind of like saying I don’t have any beliefs myself even though I believe your belief is wrong. It falls foul to the law of self-contradiction.
A whole generation has attempted to de-throne God and replace Him with a helicopter parent who imparts his or her child with “the special snowflake syndrome.” Gen-X and Gen-Y feel perfectly justified in defining god as they like for they believe they are the center of the universe and in a postmodern age there is no right or wrong just opinion anyway. So, a person has the right to “their own truth.”
Welcome to Babylon Where Apologetics Must Come Before One Can Even Understand the Gospel | Pastor Matt.
Charles Babbage was born in London in 1791 and is considered the father of the computer and one of the most influential scientists in history. He was an Anglican Christian who believed science and the Bible are compatible. He believed we should use our best knowledge and imagination to know God as best we can. He believed the authenticity of Scripture and used his scientific endeavors to demonstrate its reliability and to understand it better. He understood that theology is a knowledge-based study and that science has limits of what it can prove or disprove.
Are you an accidental Christian, or do you have a purpose, and fact filled faith? It is possible to be an intentional Christian filled with purpose, and a mission.
