Clint Decker, the Christian evangelist who runs Great Awakenings ministries, would like all of you to know that you don’t exist.
At least he writes in a column that there are no atheists because everyone believes in something, whether it’s God or themselves.
Atheists build a box around themselves keeping God out with only themselves inside. Their means of living is purely self-sufficient, cutting off all the blessings and beauty of the one true God only doing, controlling and becoming what they can manage. It is like they say, “All I want. All I need is right here in this box.”
He says that like it’s a bad thing…
Yes, there’s no Divine Being looking out for our best interests. That means we have to take care of ourselves — and each other. If anything, that brings me closer to other human beings because we’re all we have. We’re lucky to be alive.
But back to what Decker was saying?
God the Creator who made us (including all the atheists) put a natural desire within us to seek and know Him. When atheists put a box around themselves, it instinctively sets off a divine internal restlessness.
Nope. No restlessness here. Lots of peace, actually, when you’re not worried about God’s wrath with every breath.
How does this guy have a column…?
