I was not surprised to see the most recent advertisement posted by the American Atehists organization this week claiming Christ to be a myth. In light of the most recent tragedy that this country has has ever endured, children being gunned down by a 20 year old boy. You have to wonder what Atheists must think and how they explain to hurting families the reason behind this senseless killing. I want to know how many Atheists showed up to comfort those mourning their dead children, and what they would say to them if they did. Maybe something like, you will never see your children again, because once you die, it’s over. Or human life really doesn’t have any value or meaning so your children are better off. Perhaps they can comfort the parents by encouraging them to live a life void of any hope, joy, peace or a future?
I don’t know how many Newtown, Sandy Hook families are grounded in faith aside from the Parker family that spoke of their daughter “Emilie”. I was impacted by the testimony of the father, who visibly broken over the loss of his beautiful daughter, was still able to send out prayers and comfort to the family of the shooter. But to me, that takes real courage and conviction in faith. That kind of grace and forgiveness only comes from faith in a Creator. That kind of love can only be displayed having experienced true love and the Creator of love.
I cannot imagine a world void of God. If Jesus Christ would not have come to this earth to show us The Way, then the tragedy at Sandy Hook last week would be mere “Childs Play” for Satan. He seeks to kill all of God’s creation, those who know Him and those yet to know him. Murder is final in his mind. Satan knows about eternity and he knows the value of life, family and children to God. That’s why all of these institutions are under attack. We should not be surprised by this ever increasing assault on our families, we are living in a generation of Godless people. We can only prepare for more innocents being slaughtered, more pain, and more suffering because we don’t acknowledge the Creator of the universe.
Atheists should take responsibility for their part in this master plan to disprove a God that loves, protects and endures the pain of a generation that mocks Him, denies Him, and calls Him a Myth. As an atheist, you will stand before Him one day and give account for your every word and deed, in that day you will see that you were mistaken and that you mislead people. I am saddened for the families that lost their precious babies this year. Many of these kids were first born’s … and that seems to be one of Satan’s best attempts throughout history to remove God’s fingerprint on a generation. If you are an Atheist, I want you to consider your life and how you contribute to this empty, lost generation and ask yourself Why? If life is meaningless and nothing comes from nothing, then Why not? Why not kill, why not destroy each other? Why not commit senseless, heinous acts against one another? If there’s nobody to judge, nobody to condemn, then all we have is lawlessness and pandemonium. Is that the world you want to live in? I hope not.
For me, I’m sending up prayers to a God that hears and answers prayer. I pray that all of the families will find peace amidst tragedy, hope in a hopeless situation and love for humankind in a dark and dismal world, because that’s what Jesus did.
