Why “Free thinking” can be dangerous
In 2011, the Philippine Atheists and Agnostics Society was founded as a legitimate non-profit organization and it’s growing. In the US, witchcraft rises among millennials. Likewise, Satanists in the Philippines are out in the open. Atheism has other names such as; humanists, freethought, freethinkers, and Freedom From Religion. They all share the same ideology; that we are merely existential beings free to make a moral judgment as we see fit and without the need for God.
“Freethinkers and Free thought “
Theirs is an ideology opposed to God. No wonder they decry scriptures. Consider what they fight for: Same-sex marriage, gay rights, atheism, and other hedonistic practices. What they fail to realize is that this world is ruled by Satan, he has deceived them, and they are consumed by the lies of the devil that they cannot see the truth. (1 John 5:19; Revelation 12:9)
Equality, Diversity and Tolerance
In the west, “free thinkers” are associated with “identity politics.” They fight for the same cause and calls it tolerance, fluidity, and diversity. They emasculate men and empower feminist for the wrong reasons. All these are rooted in gay rights which is Satan’s attempt to blur the lines of righteousness and sin. Equality on the wrong foot is the sin of Lucifer, who claimed he is equal with God.

Why are people attracted to atheism?
Case and point: A lady supported missionaries and faithfully attended a Christian church. However, she also exposed herself to a world of ambition and pleasures. Eventually, she declared herself to be an atheist and labeled all things about Jesus as “trash.” Breaking free from the “guilt of wrong moral choices” makes atheism attractive. Atheists break free from God’s order of things and morality. Tolerance is their philosophy where anything is permissible.

The real intent of atheism
French Philosopher Albert Camus was an atheist. He offers a powerful counter-example to the stridency and animus of the “new atheism” associated with other famous atheists, Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins. However, atheism today is loosely defined.
Atheism has become a tool to destroy Christianity, rather than expose an intelligent opposition. Dawkins and Hitchens appear to be its torchbearer but they are actually bullies for imposing that “religion poisons everything.” They mock Christians who do good things for society, while they accomplish hatred and discord.

What can Christians do?
A new form of atheism comes in an old disguise: Disrespect to authority and lose morals. The victims are young people from dysfunctional families. Christians must fight the real political threat by pushing for traditional Filipino values. A God-fearing nation is blessed, that is why sharing the Gospel to the lost is an important step. If you are a Christian, getting into Bible Studies and Apologetics is a must.
