Their is no such thing as atheism. I know it sounds odd since their are lots of people running around calling themselves atheists.
I have come to agree with Pastor Mark Driscoll..everybody worships something, and its my contention that a good many of the people running around calling themselves atheists either are worshiping themselves or science. These two have become the most popular idols of the western world.
So... this begs the question of why all the hate towards Christianity from atheists? I've actually put a lot of thought in to. As it confused me for a while. Why does it matter if we believe something and they don't? Well like I said before, whether they acknowledge it or not they do worship something. The worship of the self is at odds with the worship of God. It's the original deception. Man trying to elevate himself to godhood and replace the true God. The result of this is anger towards anything even alluding to God.
Many people have said it and I'll say it again. It is a spiritual war, and it is heating up.
