atheistic "evangelism"

There is a group calling themselves the Rational Response Squad who is trying to get kids and adults to go online and upload a video to YouTube confessing that they reject God. Its tragic and and evil. Learn more by clicking here. Please protect your kids from this junk.

Jason,

I think that most people that profess to be atheist are really agnostic. I find it ironic that people push to "deny God."

Isn't it an admission that there is a possibility of God if they have to "reject God?" With that logic, then they would be agnostic, and building upon that, if you are agnostic, you at least are having a conversation with God about whether He is real or not. That seed is all we need as Christians to evangelize.

I'm just sayin'!

Last year we were riled up here in Texas by a so called atheists who asked students to trade in their bibles for pornographic magazines.

This is how it was reported on MSNBC.

Thankfully, many churches stood up to fight this.

JD,

I agree with you. Only the Lord Jesus decides when someone is lost.

Till then, keep preaching the Gospel to the four corners of the earth until He comes again.

Merry Christmas!

Albert Mohler's blog lined back to this newpaer article on how Christmas cards in Europe are being secularized and have no message or reference to Christ.

Let's help the world remember the reason for the season!

JD. I somewhat agree with you about atheists.

I'm also don't agree with these folks exegisis of the sin of the "Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit." I don't think its quite what they are saying it is.

JD said...

Do you guys think that the reason some of these kids do this is just to fit in? Do you think that they really believe what they are saying? Also, was it just me, or did the guys making the statements look a little "evil?"

I thought they looked a little evil. But, I also think that we're all pretty evil, except for the grace of God. At this time, these kids are doing all they can to resist the grace of God, so they would appear evil to me by the very nature of the act, or by what they are trying to do.

I think that they are trying to fit in and be rebellious. I don't think that God is going to stop pursuing a relationship with them because of they uploaded a video in an act of teenage rebellion. I think they've missed the boat on understanding what the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit it.

By our own accounts, if that were the case, you and I would not be where we are today in our walks with God if God would have given up on us.

There is a bit of confusion that the Blasphemy Challenge seems to have brought to light. As a perpetually curious person, I did some digging and found the following, which I hope helps you in any future discussions, or at least interpreting some of the hype out there:

In the Bible, Jesus does condemn blasphemers, unconditionally:

"He that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation." - Mark 3:29

It's also in Matthew 12:32, and Luke 12:10. Luke even caught another quote from Jesus, further clarifying his intent: "He that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God." - Luke 12:9

Also, blasphemy is defined as an "impious utterance or action concerning God or sacred things" (www.dictionary.com). This allegedly "too-simple" definition is entirely consistent with the Bible's interpretation of it (Matthew 26:65, Mark 14:64, John 10:33, Colossians 3:8, etc.).

Any discussion about blasphemy and God's position on it that does not take into account the above facts is delusional, trickery, or, at best, wishful thinking.

If you believe the Bible is the infalliable word of God and Jesus Christ, then one must read the words, and not ignore it in favor of a personal opinion or philosophy.
