Pastor David Cay
We live in a secular culture where a lot of people view the world in terms of just atoms, energy and what they can see. Many atheists make arguments and assumptions that all this spiritual stuff isn’t real.
There are many agnostics who say that there’s not enough evidence to believe in a god or an afterlife, so we can’t really know. Therefore, truly the “enlightened” wouldn’t believe in God or an afterlife; this is all there is.
I know it can feel intimidating talking to someone about faith at work or like at school and talking with intellectuals. But the Bible encourages us not to be afraid, to not avoid people with atheist/agnostic worldviews.
Instead, we should create genuine friendships with atheists and agnostics. We should be ready to explain the reason for the hope that we have in Jesus. Our Bible passage today makes us think about what many atheists and agnostics have proposed today in our culture.
