Reaching the steadfast unbeliever

Atheist stickers.One of the hardest things for those who do not share Christian beliefs is our faith’s exclusive nature–that Jesus is the one and only way to God. Certainly when prominent Christian leaders make very public, sinful mistakes and choices, Atheists can point to this as an example of hipocricy or even hatred, and will paint our faith with a wide brush.

So how does one share the Hope  of Christ with a non believer? And what role does scientific study play in our apologetics–the way we present His Gospel? Joining us on our show today is Robert Meyer, an expert on atheism and the writer of a recent Renew America article titled, Why I am not an Atheist: On Science and Miracles.

    Comments: My opinion is that these athiests simply don't want to believe in God because then they have to be accountable to Him. They want to see a miracle and wouldn't know one if it bit them. Everyday there are miracles. DNA is proof, that our body can heal, the expanse of the universe, the miracle of conception and birth,that a mother has the milk in her own body to feed her young, the way a seed erupts into a plant and bears fruit after its own kind, the fulfillment of prophecy. I could go on and on. There are many infallable proofs, they just don't want to accept them.

    Psa 14:1 To the Chief Musician. [A Psalm] of David. The fool has said in his heart, "[There is] no God." They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does good.
    1Ti 6:20-21 O Timothy , keep that which is committed to thy trust , avoiding profane [and] vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called which some professing have erred concerning the faith

      Very true. Not everyone will agree, but I see most atheist objections as volitional and emotional, rather than intellectual. I Timothy 6:20 is the verse I used to introduce my piece, Why i can't be an atheist part 5 on science and miracles.

  2. Love this subject! Good show!

    Until and unless God supernaturally intervenes in the life of a spiritually dead slave to sin, they will always (and freely and happily) choose to reject holiness (and the epitome of holiness, God) while just as happily and freely choosing to embrace sin and rebellion. The only message with the supernatural power to save a dead person from such a condition is that of the undiluted Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    While it is certainly good and God glorifying to have answers to all sorts of other questions, those answers should never take the place of the essential components of the Gospel: God is holy, man is evil, judgment is coming…repent, believe and be saved.

    The Gospel proclamation is not a request. It is a command. As A.W. Tozer rightly observed, "We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum."
