A Message To Atheists

(A follow-up post: Trump’s Wall Isn’t The Only Wall We Should Be Thinking About)

Atheists,

God is glad you don’t believe in Him.

Why?

Because your unbelief — your desire to believe not because you are told to, but because the facts and logic line up — reflects that which He asks all people to do:

Test everything. Hold fast to what is good.
~1 Thessalonians 5:21

Be as shrewd as serpents.
~Matthew 10:6

Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.
~Philippians 4:8

More than once online, I’ve ran across Christians whose reasoning for their beliefs was flawed. (For one example of what I’m talking about: Critiquing David Outten’s and Ted Baehr’s “The Disease Of Multiculturalism.”) So I appreciate that atheists’ reasoning is air-tight. What I mean by “air-tight” is: Though I don’t always agree with what atheists say, in all the conversations I’ve had I’ve never been left going “This makes no sense.”

We are all on our own journey.

Keeping seeking the truth with an open mind, humility, logic, and love — keep testing all things and holding fast to what is good — and I don’t doubt that, one day, you will find yourself in a state-of-being beyond any you can imagine.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.*
~Matthew 7:7

–21st Century Catholic

*I am not quoting Matthew 7:7 to imply that asking, seeking, and knocking will lead you to the God of the Bible. I am quoting Matthew 7:7 to imply that asking, seeking, and knocking will lead you to the truth. Whatever “the truth” is.
As a Catholic, I believe “the truth” is God. The key word being believe. I won’t know, with certainty, if what I believe as a Catholic is true until the moment of my death — when I either enter a void, or stand in front of the pearly gates to be judged.

  1. I’ll be honest, I got really worried when this post popped up in my Reader. I thought it was going to be something snarky or sarcastic but you totally proved me wrong. You’re the best kind of believer. You hold true to your faith but don’t try to shove it down other people’s throats or ridicule them for not believing what you do. Stay blessed!

  2. Hmmm. Anonymous Atheist here. Circular Reasoning never works, nor self-referenced logic traps. But then, the average IQ is 88.
