Atheism, is the denial of any beliefs in God or spiritual beings. As such, Atheism is usually distinguished from Theism, which affirms the reality of the Divine and seeks to demonstrate its existence. Atheism is also distinguished from agnosticism, which leaves open the question whether there really is a god or not, admitting to that the questions were unanswerable.
The conflicting argument between forms of belief and unbelief raises questions concerning the most crystal clear delineation, or characterization, of atheism, agnosticism, and theism. It is necessary not only to probe the motive for atheism but also to carefully consider what the most acceptable description of atheism is.
Atheism is rejection of religious beliefs
A central, common core of Judaism, Christianity and Islam is that they confirm the reality of ONE, and ONLY ONE GOD. Supporters of these faiths [religions] believe that there is a God who created the Universe out of nothing (Gen.1), and Who has absolute sovereignty [authority and power] over ALL His Creation; including human beings, who are not only utterly dependent on this Creative Power but also sinful and who, or so the faithful must believe, can only make adequate sense of their lives by accepting, without question, God’s decrees for them. The variations of atheism are many, but all atheists reject these beliefs.
Atheism casts a wider net and rejects all belief in “spiritual beings,” and to the extent that belief in spiritual beings defines what it means for a system to be religious, atheism rejects religion. So, atheism not only rejects the vital beliefs of Judaism, Christianity and Islam; it also rejects the religious beliefs of African religions such as Dinka and the Nuer, and of the humanlike gods of Greece and Rome, and of the mystical conceptions of Hinduism and Buddhism. In general, atheism is simply a denial of God or of any gods. So, IF religion is defined in terms of belief in spiritual beings, then atheism is the rejection of ALL religious belief.
Atheism and Theism
To place an ‘a’ before a word, reverses the meaning. Thiesm . . . Athiesm. Putting an ’a’ before a word always changes it to the opposite meaning? atypical = not typical, apersonal = not personal, amillennium = no millennium. There are many more examples.
Atheism is the denial of God or the gods and that is the exact opposite of theism, which is a Biblical system of belief that affirms the reality of God and seeks to demonstrate His Existence. The religion of Atheism is totally inadequate in many ways. Not all religious experts who regard themselves as defenders of the Christian faith or of Judaism or Islam regard themselves as defenders of theism. Some regard the God of theism to be an idol and refuse to see God as being a Supreme Being or an Infinite Being above finite beings. This rejection of theism, while retaining a belief in God, is not unusual in contemporary theology, though it may very well insult the TRUE believer. . . . . . . . . . https://www.godcannotlie.org/true_children_of_god.htm
A recent global survey conducted by National Geographic shows that the world’s fastest growing religion is “No Religion” . . . more commonly referred to as Atheism. Based on this survey, not only is it the world’s fastest growing religion, it is now the second largest religious affiliation in North America, and is the first religion in Europe.
In the United States, over 22% of the population now are Atheists. This number is up from 6.7% as recently as 2007. And too, Atheism now represents a greater part of the U.S. population than Catholics, mainline Protestants, and the followers of all non-Christian faiths. This shows that this millennial generation is the largest of non-religious affiliated people on Earth. It is also interesting to know that along with the growth of Atheism, there has been a huge increase in homelessness, drug addiction and lower education levels in the population. This all leads to greater unhappiness. All of these negative consequences have been documented, and I believe are the direct result of the moral relativism associated with atheistic beliefs. https://www.politico.com/news/gallup-poll
There is also another matter that has become a big problem in America . . . that being the snowballing attacks on our old religious beliefs and Christian morals. Each and every new day we see the MEDIA reporting serious hostility toward people who hold firm to the old, Biblical, traditional moral beliefs. This goes on at colleges and universities that regularly allow these attacks on those of us who hold firm with Biblical beliefs.
In our society we see more and more social and legal pressure being put on Christians to support the many forms of immorality. And worse, we see a huge increase in the number of people who support Socialism/Communism. Instead of trying to provide the greatest opportunity for individuals, this economic approach, based on an atheistic worldview, puts a priority on the united. In this system, those who hold various positions of power are able to determine how resources are allocated throughout society. Remarkably, this not only takes away individual liberty, but increases the poverty rate . . . the exact opposite of their stated goals. BEWARE!!!
Is the increase in the number of Atheists really responsible for all of this? Again, most Atheists will ridicule this portrayal, but, in reality, the moral basis for Atheism leads precisely to this result.
Explanation of Atheism
Atheism is a natural belief system with the idea that the natural Universe is all that exists . . . and that there is no such thing as a superior being . . . so, to an Atheist, there is NO God. Relating to man, Atheists believe that he is a naturally evolved animal that has developed the largest and most complex brain of all animals.
In Atheism, morality is a human concept, as there is no impartial foundation for making moral claims. In other words, morality becomes only what those in power desire it to be . . . and the way to accomplish people’s desired outcomes is based on the “ends justify the means” attitude.
Explanation of the Christian Faith
Christian Theism is really the exact opposite of Atheism. Christians believe that a Superior Reality does exist, and that the God of the Bible is the only TRUE God. Born again Christians also believe that man was created by God, in His image (Gen.1:26), but is fallen and separated from Him by sin. Since our Creator God, does not want that separation . . . He provided a Way to fix the consequences of the Fall (John 3:16; 14:6). This was accomplished by the atoning sacrificial death of Christ on the cross (John 19:28-30). All who turn from their sin and receive Christ into their lives have their sin forgiven and enter an eternal fellowship with God the Father. Christians are called by God to be salt and light in the world. This means that we must bring the love of Christ to a world that is lost and separated from Him.
Christian Strategies to Fight
Against the False Beliefs of Atheism
Just as those trying to promote an atheistic belief use tactics to accomplish their goals, Christians also must use tactics to accomplish the work of Christ . . . BUT . . . Christian tactics are completely different from Atheism!
The Christian faith is built on the belief that God really does exist, and is a real Person, and that the teachings in the Bible have been revealed by God to mankind. WHY did God decide to create His Holy Word? WHY do we have the Bible?
The answer is quite simple . . . the purpose of the Bible is to understand God’s Heart and Mind so that mankind may understand HOW to KNOW God, and HOW to live as He wants us to live. It is also that we KNOW that He truly desires that we have a personal relationship with Him.
Christian tactics for changing the world are very different from the tactics supported by Atheists. Christian tactics, are based on TRUTH . . . and the only way to legally beat those who believe in relativism is to force the relativists to look TRUTH in the face. See what the Bible states about Relativism. Romans 1:18-26 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (KJV)
This is what Christians must grab hold of! They must learn how to speak the TRUTH in the bold face of falsehood. To do this is not easy . . . it is a deep spiritual effort. We must master the facts that will help us expose the lies of false belief systems. This knowledge, these facts are different for each worldview system, because each religion has its own exceptional way of understanding what is real and what is make-believe. We must learn how to bring real TRUTH to people who believe that our message is invented. If we don’t learn how to connect to people across worldview barriers, our message will not be understood.
Many [if not most] Christians are not willing to make the effort to learn these things because they think it is not necessary. They are satisfied to continue using the same mindset that existed when we did not have variety of worldview beliefs that are now so prominent in our country. We simply cannot do that anymore if we are serious about sharing the message of Christ in our current environment.
Many people think Atheism is a “lack of religion.” It is not! It is legitimately a religious system that sees the physical Universe as reality, and God as a fantasy. When sharing Christ with Atheists, we should not try to convince non-religious people to accept our religion. We should simply try to help them SEE the emptiness of their current faith, and that sharing Christ is the Answer to their emptiness.
