That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life...
Philippians 2:15-16a

This Made Me Laugh :)

Every Friday, Way of Life Literature posts Friday Church News on their website.  There are all sorts of short articles and updates on Christian issues ranging from abortion, to evolution, to warnings about false teachings in the contemporary church movement.  This one from today made me laugh :).  (Emphasis is mine).

ATHEISTS ANGRY AT GOD (Friday Church News Notes, March 18, 2011,, 866-295-4143) - The amazing title of a recent CCN report was “Anger at God Common, Even Among Atheists” (Jan. 1, 2011). A series of studies in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology has found that people get angry at God all the time and “atheists and agnostics reported more anger at God during their lifetimes than believers.” On the other hand, “more religious people are more likely to see God’s intentions as well-meaning.” What was not addressed is the strange issue of why an atheist would be angry at a myth. My educated guess would be that the “God” the atheist and agnostic are angry at is the very God described in the Bible, the Almighty Creator God, and not Zeus or Kali or Mother Earth or a vague New Age Higher Power. This again proves the truth and reality of the Bible, which says that it is the fool who says there is no God and men have a knowledge of God in their hearts and conscience but they have rebelled against Him and are at enmity with Him (e.g., Psalm 14:1; Romans 3:18-21; 8:7). We are thankful that the Good News is that salvation is available through Jesus Christ for sinners who will repent, acknowledging their rebellion and surrendering to God’s authority, and put their faith in Christ’s Atonement which He purchased on the Cross. “Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God” (Romans 3:25).

If you are interested in reading more Friday Church News, you can click on the link to Way of Life Literature on my side bar.  This website also has some GREAT articles on many different topics and issues that Christians face today.  What I appreciate the most about this website is that each article is filled with Scripture after Scripture and explanations from the Bible. You can read with assurance that everything is being presented from a biblical perspective, and it's not just some man's opinion.
