Shawn Graves: Why There Are Still Atheists

From Christianity Today online.

It’s understandable why some people, like Spiegel, read that “the heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands” and subsequently wonder why there are any atheists at all. But reflecting on that passage prompts me to ask a different question: Why should we think that the heavens and the skies are the only ones declaring and proclaiming? We theists declare and proclaim as well. But our proclamations about God—on significant matters like what God is like, what God is doing in the world, and what we ought to do—are often incompatible and unhelpful.

A helpful analysis. Graves is not afraid to ask some hard questions. It also ties in well with today’s blog entry below. Read it all and reflect on it. What would happen if Christians started acting like Kingdom workers? Would not this start turning heads and getting people to stop and take notice? Would this not also cause some to ask the “why are you doing that?” question?
