Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

Atheists Save the World

Have you ever wondered about the tsunami like tide of evil that is sweeping the Globe? Are you staggered by evil's power to shred society, collapsing nations? Not a Newscast goes by without the mention of corruption. And do you notice how no race, gender or age group is exempt from the power and influence of evil? It ruins families. It destroys homes. And most of all, it causes humans to do all they can to ignore it, despite the way evil corrodes the quality of everyone's life.
On the other hand, those who refuse to call evil for what it is, have grand plans for healing society's ills. Space does not allow a full discourse of the “cures” that have so far been explored by secularists but there are a few that are worth noting. Another of the more infamous secular efforts might include:
- Science
- We were told that the combination of wide-spread, higher education and stupendous wealth
- Then it was sex without the perceived confinement of marriage.
- The coerced celebration of the sexually disoriented.
Or how about easy divorce? That too hasn’t been the miracle cure that the worldly wise and famous promised that it would be. There has however been one benefit of mass divorce. The benefit has been to show the hypocrisy in our claims that we love our children. We love ourselves, PERIOD! Let the kids fend for themselves.
As I write this, atheists are filling their blogs with the wonderful news that a survey has shown that if you are an atheist, you probably engage in casual sexual intercourse with almost no guilt compared to Christians to engage in the same type of sexual immorality. Sweet! (sarcasm). Most Christians have already lived the type of life that atheists are touting. We know what they're promoting. What we've found is that the guidelines that Christianity gives regarding our sexual lives specifically, and relationships generally, can on the surface seem constricting. However, nothing comes as close to being restricting and smothering as ignoring those guidelines and then experiencing broken relationships, abortions or spending decades with children that you can't or don't want to raise. Nothing brings heartache like ignoring Jesus' teaching on our sexual selves. The freedom that comes with the atheist's view of utopia is like being in the middle of the ocean with no direction finding equipment of any kind. You are free to go in any direction you please, but you have absolutely no way of knowing how to find safe harbour.
