Atheists growing in number – JAM
This is Just-a-minute with Ed Boggess. Atheism is on the rise and one reason is their passion to spread cynicism and unbelief. They claim there are biblical examples of God being unjust and capricious. But there is a fundamental difference between believers and atheists in the way they treat the Bible. A skeptic searches for any Bible example for which there is no apparent explanation (in spite of many others for which there is adequate explanation) and finding one, he declares he is justified in whatever charge he brings against God and his own faithlessness. On the other hand, a believer searches the Bible examples and finds adequate explanations for many and on that basis chooses to trust that God is wise, just and good in those he cannot explain and that he is vindicated in his choice of faith. As for me and my household, I choose faith.
