What is wrong with atheists that they continually question the Bible? Why do they waste their time and energy hammering away at the Bible? Why don’t they concentrate on their book that explains, in a historical setting, that there is no evidence for God? It is unproductive to just criticise the Bible. Won’t it be much more profitable to believe their own accurate book that demonstrates there is no God?
Most atheists believe the Bible is a myth, or a human book. There is no need to question a human book, but they follow the example of somebody described in the Bible. He questioned God right from the beginning. It is ‘that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray.’ 1 The devil was very concerned about what God said. That is why he questioned Eve about God’s words.
He asked Eve the same old question we hear repeatedly from atheists, ‘Did God really say…’ 2 (‘Is the Bible really the true Word of God’)? Atheists actions parallel that of Satan, the enemy of God. The devil is the main atheist producer and today he has many disciples that help him. NB! This statement that the devil produces atheists is proved by the many atheist blogs and websites that specialise in how wrong the Bible is. They all ask, ‘Does the Bible really say…?’
What do we want to convey? Atheists mostly copy what the enemy of God did. They parrot him when they claim that the Bible is a human book with many errors. If that is true, they should just ignore it, but they cannot leave it alone. It is just like the devil who could not leave God’s words alone.
In the mean time, while we wait for their powerful book that proves there is no God, atheists do Christians a great favour. They force us to ask ourselves if Scripture is important enough to us that we get to know it much better? So, in a sense, we thank God for atheists! They wake us up and make us alert to our wonderful Book. It is a Book that shows us the way to a country of eternal peace and happiness.
