ATHEISTS ARE MADE, NOT BORN - The Biblical Psychology of Modern Atheism

#3 - HOW ATHEISTS EXPLAIN RELIGION - AND WHY THEY'RE RIGHT - BUT NOT THE WAY THEY THINK

Speaker
Rev. Don Horban
Scripture
Romans 1:21-23
#3 in the Series "ATHEISTS ARE MADE, NOT BORN - The Biblical Psychology of Modern Atheism"


While not the only argument used by atheists, certainly one of the most commonly expressed is religion is the invention of people unable to cope with the harshness of nature and life in this world as it actually is.


So, the argument goes, we don't know how to cope with a random, harsh, real world. We don't want to feel helpless and we don't want to feel alone. And so we create the idea of God. There is someone out there who cares - perhaps even hears our prayers. We need help to cope with life and religion is the easy way out. I want to look carefully at the thinking behind this most common of all arguments used by atheists. And I want to because I think they inadvertently give endorsement to the Biblical account of religion in general.
