The Dangerous Truth about Atheism
On Saturday, atheists gathered in DC at the Lincoln Memorial to hold what they called a “Reason Rally.” The atheists said their focus is secularism and their major political issues are climate change, reproductive rights, and LGBT equality. The atheists said this was definitely a political event, and they are holding it in an election year because, they “want to see reason taking precedence over religious-driven ideology.” This liberal godless kind of what they call “reason”should concern every freedom-loving American.
Isn’t it ironic that they met on the grounds of the Lincoln Memorial where these words are engraved in stone: “We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain–that this nation UNDER GOD shall have a new birth of freedom.” President Abraham Lincoln acknowledged the inherent role God plays in establishing our rights and freedoms and so did many of our founding fathers. Now these atheists promoting secularism want to strip God out of America’s past, present and future. Here’s a warning— If you remove God, you remove God’s hand of blessing. That’s been shown over and over throughout history.
What can we do? As Christians, we need to urgently share Jesus Christ with an ever-growing secular world. One day each of these people is going to stand before the God that they disown, and they will face an eternity in hell if they have not trusted Christ as their Savior. That’s where this kind of “reason” will get them. The Bible says, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (Proverbs 14:12).
A general question about the response Reverend Franklin Graham had to those attending the “Reason Rally”: Do you believe Graham’s position is one of love or hate?
Do you believe he cares one iota what anyone says about his statement to those in attendance at the rally?
As for me…I think Graham’s statement is one of love. Further…and more importantly, the only person Graham is trying to please is his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
A couple of years ago, I heard Graham preach on the subject of being bold from the pulpit. It was at a rally for pastors from all over the world and Graham was encouraging them to be bold from the pulpit.
He pointed to Revelation 21:8 as confirmation of what God says on the matter. The first characteristic God mentions “not to be” is cowardly. God is clear that to much is given, much is expected. The cowardly will be thrown into the lake of fire…eternal separation from God, the second death.
Franklin Graham is preaching the truth. If Reverand Graham didn’t issue such a bold statement to those attending this rally…he’d be guilty of being a coward on such an important matter.
As a believer in Jesus Christ, I know that one day He will judge me/us for our actions. My goal is to have Him say “well done my good and faithful servant”. Matthew 25:21
Franklin Graham will get a thumbs up from God on judgement day for his reaction to today’s rally in D.C.
