Should You Argue With Atheists?
Count it all joy!
Are atheists right? Are we believers deluded? Irrational? Is there no proof of God's love, of His mercy, of His daily provision?
Most believers' faith is not based on systematic theological exegesis or archeological-based apologetics. They cannot site scientific proof for God’s daily guidance, provision and protection. Most were raised by believing parents or have had personal experiences that strengthened their faith and drove them to their knees before the Lord.
Many Christians cannot point to any definite event that caused them to believe. Think of your own experience. Did you become a Christian because you heard a convincing debate between an atheist and a believer -- and the arguments of the Christian were more intellectually satisfying? Probably not.
In fact, how many people do you know who came to a deep relationship with Jesus because of a screaming match between an atheist and a Christian -- and the Christian won?
