Who’s to Blame?

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. (Psalms 14:1)

We go throughout our daily lives and run into many people that are atheists. Some of them wouldn’t bother going to your church even if you told them about miracles, they just don’t want to believe and says it’s all our imagination. Are they wrong? Well of course, but can you blame them for shutting us out? Besides the fact that the devil blinds the eyes of people so they won’t see truth (2 Corinthians 4:4), is there any other reason that people just refuse to believe there is a God?

Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. (Colossians 4:5)

Paul gives Christians an instruction, not a suggestion, to walk wisely before people without wisdom (fools – atheists). Why? To redeem, buy back, the time we have already wasted. Paul knew that those walking wisely could have an impact on those watching them, which is why he said to walk wisely. One way and the main way to walk wisely is in the fear of The Lord, in obedience to the Word of God. So my question to you is this, how are you walking? Are you living a consecrated, set apart, life? Or are you listening to the same music/tv/movies as the world? Are you going to the same parties? Laughing at the same sinful and lustful jokes? Do you look any differently then people in the world? And even if you don’t appear to look sinful and you’ve managed to look like you love Jesus, does your heart show it? Are you dressing modestly and having perverted thoughts? Are you smiling in public and gossiping/backbiting in private? Are we in love with Jesus or are we Christian atheists?

Christian atheist: Believing in God but living as though He doesn’t exist

This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. (Matthew 15:8)

Do atheists not believe in Jesus Christ or do they not believe in Christians?.. You see, I think we could be more effective in soul winning if we didn’t look like the people that were actually lost. I think we could have less people backsliding if we showed them love the way God loves us. If we were more merciful on those who made mistakes, maybe people wouldn’t be ashamed and try to hide their struggles. Maybe if we didn’t argue and complain so much people would actually believe God was a provider. You see, we complain as if God is a genie. God provides for our need, not our greed. I’m not pointing fingers, I’m guilty of all types of sin. I’m just well aware that we have to do better if we want to win more souls to the Kingdom. Think about it. People may not read the Bible, but they will read you

There would be much less atheists in the world if there were more “Christians” who actually lived the way God intended. Do people see Jesus when they see you?

God bless. 
– Tovares Grey

(Remember this: No matter how much you love Jesus and how much you persuade people, you cannot save anyone. Only God can draw them. And no matter how much you try, you can’t convince everyone to turn to Jesus, so don’t worry if rejected.)

I absolutely love Jesus, and I am unashamed to say that. I'm just a young man with big dreams, but my main purpose in life is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  1. Beautiful. I’m not religious anymore though I believe in Jesus and all other great masters. But I was pushed away from church because there’s too much judgment, too many people that know nothing pretending to know something and telling people what to do and what to think. If there’s a god and he’s like that I do prefer to be an atheist, ‘cos all I believe is in love. So there, I think in that sense I’m more christian than many christians I know. Much love for you.

    1. Modern Christians do represent Jesus Christ poorly, but don’t let it be an excuse to push you away. You just follow Him and let Him teach you how to be an example, because some people don’t realize when they’re wrong, so just turn back to Jesus. Remember, it’s about a relationship to God, not with church.
