Why do some people choose to be 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 rather remain unbelieving because their lifestyle is too satisfying to give up.
Dilema 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?
Despite Ray Comfort establishing the “God our Creator,” most students wouldn’t give up atheism. He points a simple reason: At video 29:20 minutes, Ray tells plainly that atheists would continue to pretend that “God is not real” because they love pornography, sex, and sinful pleasures.
Those who love sin love darkness than light (John 3:19). Darkness hates the light, and “Jesus is the light of the world.” Many refuse the light because their deeds will be exposed (John 8:12; John 6:51).
But those who believe and follow Jesus will be saved. When He returns, Jesus will take with Him those belonging to God; then the end will come.
Refusal to submit to God’s authority
In a mock survey at the Atheist Experience Facebook group, a poll asked, “Would you worship a god if it were real? 86% out of 13,000 responded said no.
Bottom line, the issue is not about God’s existence but a person’s refusal to submit to His authority.
