100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #48 | with Daniel Whyte III
SCRIPTURE -- Psalm 14:1: "The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good."
If you have been following the changes in our society and culture, you have no doubt heard of a group of people called the "new atheists." Their numbers are growing at a rapid pace. A recent Gallup poll reports that five percent of Americans say they don't believe in God. That may seem like a small number, but in reality, it isn't, considering that just seven years ago, only one percent of Americans called themselves atheists.
Though there are many of these so-called "new atheists", three of them stand out because they have written bestselling books over the past few years that promote their views. Their names are Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, and Christopher Hitchens who died last year. Previously, atheism carried a stigma with it; people didn't come out and publicly declare themselves atheists because it was looked down upon. But these "new atheists" are very aggressive in their beliefs. They not only condemn belief in God, they condemn those who have respect and tolerance for a belief in God. To them, religion is not just wrong; it's evil, and they say society would be better without it.
Today, I want to show you three answers which God gives to atheists' objections to His existence.
1. The first answer is the fact that there is morality in human nature.
2. The second answer which God gives to atheists is the fact that there is spirituality in human nature.
3. The third answer which God gives to atheists is the fact that so many people have given their testimony of a relationship with God.
