There are different ways God speaks to us as His childrens. Perhaps, God’s way to wake us up from our intellectual slumbers is to use atheists to override religion in general and Christianity in particular with their aggression and militanism as a wake up call. God has been speaking to us all along only to turn to Him with deaf ears. Isn’t the rise of atheistic literature with their best selling books, insulting and undermining God and His followers in a disrespectful manner; a warning to Christians who has been all too busy in worldly things?

Haven’t we Christians grown more to be as God’s brats who doesn’t want to work harder for the Kingdom of God by witnessing to others and by communicating to non believers outside our churches? Have we become spoiled little kids in thinking that God is going to save us from these mess without lifting one finger? Surely, this is worse idolatry in thinking that God will save us from our current slothful, irrational, and sloppy thinking. God forbid! God needs someone who can go against the tides of skeptics, groundless polemics and someone who can counter argue effectively against their venomous attacks towards Christianity and its adherents.

We can no longer afford ignoring these tide of hate, anti religion, anti Christian atmosphere that has permeated in our public schools, universities, and even inside our homes. Yes, even our private lives is under threat by a secular government who wants to defuse and take away parents rights from teaching their kids that Jesus loves them. Soon they’ll take away our kids and put them in foster homes. And soon they’ll take away our Bibles and take away our rights to worship our God. And, if this is not enough they will try to put us all into a mental institution.

Sound similar huh? Of course, the above is already happening specifically in the Communists countries (soon enough in a very liberal country as Sweden). But this is bound to happen in our so-called democratic state too where atheism is sacred and if one does not bow the god of atheism one will face severe persecutions. You don’t have to take my word for it, just read the books written by prominent new atheists. I’m probably just exaggerating. What do you think? An exaggeration or not there is still enough hope to “neutralise” these rampant rise of atheism. First, we must turn our back to God and ask for forgiveness and start to study His word seriously as we have never ever done before everyday.

Second, we must indulge ourselves in studies; for example, apologetics, philosophy, theology, science, and rhetoric. Third, we must not ignore the art of witnessing to our friends, families, associates, classmates, parents and grand parents. Fourth, we should start having dialogues with our none believing neighbours in a very respectful manner. We cannot afford to be apathetic and afraid in our public discourse against, abortion, homosexuality, paedophilia, pornography, bigotry, so on and so forth. C’mon Christians, we have lots to do with so little time.
