Ray Comfort to Richard Dawkins, why are you an atheist?
Passionate street preacher Ray Comfort exposed the fallacies and delusion of atheism. In the video titled “The Atheist Delusion,” Ray asked students if God was real. Many admitted they were atheists, and Ray tried to change their minds.
Despite some realizing God’s existence, they’d remain unbelieving because their (sinful) lifestyle is too satisfying to give up.
The dilemma of atheists in refuting God
Ray Comfort asked which came first, the egg or the chicken. If the egg was first, was it fertilized? But then, who fertilized it? What about the heart? Which came first, the heart itself or the blood?
What makes atheism attractive?
Even if Ray had established God’s existence, the students he interviewed wouldn’t give up their atheistic beliefs. Atheists persist that God isn’t real because they don’t want to give up sinful pleasures.
Author Dinesh D’Souza claims that atheists vehemently deny the existence of an afterlife, which he describes as a “faith-based rejection.” This may be because they want to evade the potential consequences of their actions in the afterlife.
In short, atheists reject God because that will mean accountability for their sins. Atheism is really a person’s refusal to submit to His authority and worship Him.
Those who love sin love darkness more than light.
John 8:12; John 6:51
Darkness hates the light, and “Jesus is the light of the world.” Many refuse Jesus, who is the true light, because it exposes their sinful deeds.
They don’t want to give up their sinful pleasures.
