Atheists should thank God for His patience!
If you're not already a member of the Creation Moments Facebook group, you're missing out on some great discussions! For instance, teacher April Schulthies recently shared some thought-provoking comments on Richard Dawkins and other atheistic evolutionists who find great pleasure in attacking God. Check it out ... then visit our Facebook group to see a whole lot more!
Atheists attack the one true living God as vicious and evil without even bothering to find out that He's the defense of the weak and the downtrodden. Dawkins knows very well that his followers are too lazy to do their research. His God Delusion book describes the God of the Bible as the worst monster to hit the universe. In an interview I saw, Dawkins relished reading this diatribe against Jesus, but when he was asked if he wanted to comment on any of the other "gods" of any of the world's religions, he dismissed them out of hand.
Why, I ask, would Dawkins go after the God of the Bible, Jesus Christ, but have no interest in attacking any other so-called "gods" if he didn't know exactly what he was doing?
Am I saying that Dawkins knows in his heart that Jesus Christ is the one true living God? You bet. It's obvious, because Jesus is his only target.
Dawkins rips apart the God of the Bible every chance he gets, calling him a blood-thirsty villain. Here's one example:
"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."
This statement exploits people's ignorance. Anyone who has read the Bible knows that the Lord God of Israel is meek and lowly, the hope of the helpless, a father to the fatherless, a defender of the defenseless. God is no respecter of persons. He is a shield to those who place their trust in him. He will, it is true, remove his support from the wicked if they refuse to repent, but what else would you expect from a just God?
It's unbelievable what you see on these evolutionist blogs. And the people evidently believe their own diatribe. If Jesus really was in the smallest particle the unmerciful God they make him out to be, the earth would have long ago opened up and swallowed them alive, just to wipe out the ignominy of such ingratitude and hatred.
Truly the Lord is good to even those who are evil, giving them a chance to mend their ways. Otherwise, the evolutionists I've encountered in blogs would not be around to blaspheme and spread lies.
